I’m going to let me inner five and a half year old out. Today is my brithday. I feel special. What makes me feel so special? EVERYONE IS SUPER EXTRA NICE WHEN IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! Thats why! Today before noon I had recieved more texts, tweets and facebook posts then I do in an average month.
In complete honesty I had low expectations for today. Last night I made last minute plans to go out for dinner with some friends and I jokingly asked a people to bring me cake. Other than that I had said very little in regards to my birthday. But two cakes, one tin of score bars and at least 5 failed attempts at harmonizing later, I AM HAVING A BLAST!
Long story short, I had nothing to be scared of on this Friday the 13th. Everyone has pulled through to make me feel so special. I was hoping to mostly ignore this lovely day, but instead I recieved a confidence boost I didn’t even know I needed. Luckily this avalanche of complements hits me only once a year, or else I might end up with a head so big that I look like a Bratz doll. So to those that have made my day brighter by making me a “special” card, baking delicious treats, singing or even just acknowledging my existence, thanks. You have helped start my 17th year of life out better than I ever expected!
