Birthday plans

For the past two weeks, people have started making comments about my pending birthday. Namely, they want to know what I’m doing to celebrate my 25th on January 10.

Part of me wants to do something special, while the other part of me doesn’t want to do a thing because of all the work that goes into doing something special.

J has asked several times what I want to do and I’ve said I don’t care. Even though my birthday is celebrated as a national party in Canada, to me, it’s a day like any other.

But I feel like I have to do something for my family and friends. And, since I’m one for planning and not being spontaneous (if you want to see me pissed off, surprise me with something), inevitably I’m the person who’ll be putting things together.

It’s not about the gifts and candles on the cake, but it’s figuring out when to do it (day and time), where to go, what to do there, who will be invited (and who won’t), who will RSVP, how everyone will get there, etc. etc.

Who knew that planning your own birthday party would be a lot of work? If it’s this much of a pain, I’m not going to do a thing and stay 24 for another year.

By the way, mark January 10 with a big, red circle on your calendar...

I know exactly how you feel. It seems like nothing happens on my birthday unless I plan it, but I never really feel like doing anything for my birthday, so I cave it and plan a dinner or something. Who knew it so difficult.

I did as you suggested, got my red Sharpie with the wide tip out, and appropriately marked January 10th!


Thanks for that suggestion!

How remarkable! I already have a big red circle on January 10th - I guess your birthday corresponds with my menstrual cycle! I'd recommend staying 24 - I've been 28 for several years now and I LOVE it.

Sorry, but you're not on my Facebook so I'll inevitably forget your birthday. I'll just say happy almost-birthday now. Capricorns rule.
