Happy birthday to me
July 23, 2009 10:57am CST
I am going to have my birthday very soon which will mean my 20's are gone. The funny thing is not many friends of mine do know that I am having a birthday these few days and therefore it is kind of "normal" that my birthday is not celebrated. Sometimes, I feel bad about it when it seems that celebrating the birthday seems to be much fun for others but not for me. So, happy birthday to me.

First, happy birthday! Second, I usually try to wish my friends happy birthday when it is their birthday. Facebook makes it much easier to keep up with and I tend to do it on that because my friends from home are no longer around. I still do things with my family for my birthday and their birthdays. My grandma or mom usually makes a cake. My boyfriend's family has never really celebrated birthdays so it is normal to them to not celebrate. I've always felt like a birthday is a special day and if it is not celebrated that it should at least be acknowledged by someone who loves you and that cake should be involved. :-)

I also wish my friends happy birthday when it is their day as I also think that it is such a happy moment to receive those words when they are from the heart. But I really hope that those words are from the heart rather than from a notification raised by whatever application it is.

haha, happy birthday, happy birthday! I think it's good that your friends are not aware of your birthday, so that they will think you are still in your 20s, instead of a decade older. Anyway, 30 years of food and many bowls of rice to reach this stage! Happy birthday, and welcome to the fourth decade of your life.
