Soooo.... I just realized my birthday is in 12 days!! How did it sneak up on me so fast? Where the heck did May go? I am kind of dreading this birthday because I will be 22. There are no more birthdays to look forward to now, just getting old. After 21 you have nothing "big" to celebrate other than the fact that you are freaking old.... I just want to stay 21 forever! I wonder if everyone feels this way after 21? I mean how did I not realize that my birthday was coming up? When I was little I would have like a six month countdown! And the night before my birthday I wouldn't even be able to sleep because of the excitement of waking up and getting to open my wonderful birthday presents, it was like Christmas! I would always have a party, but now that I am in college and have drifted away form my high school friends and with my birthday being during the summer when no one is here I don't really have anyone to celebrate with. Plus the fact that I am taking summer classes and don't really have time to celebrate. It makes me sad that birthdays have just become another day. I just hate that. I guess it's because one of my grandmothers made this rule a few years ago; if you are 21 and not in school you don't get a birthday present. I mean how terrible is that, my own grandparents will stop buying me birthday presents as soon as I graduate. Grandparents are supposed to be the ones who spoil you to death, I mean it's not like I'm being a brat, and whining about not getting a gift soon, I wouldn't mind having little things that are useful like picture frames or something like that. And it's not like they don't have the money either. I really just don't understand it. I guess it's her way of punishing the ones who didn't go to college? I don't know but we continue to buy her presents and she says we aren't supposed to buy presents! Confusion..... All I know is, when I have kids no matter how old they get they will always have that special day and I will make a big deal out of it.
If anyone else has a birthday out there this month Happy Birthday! Know that you are special and beautiful and your birth is always something to be celebrated!
