It seems that half of our editorial staff has had birthdays within the past few weeks. We all have different ideas of how we wanted our birthday to be celebrated or how we felt about our birthdays. So I’ve been thinking about memorable birthdays. What was yours? And was it memorable in a good or a bad way?
I am undecided about mine as I’ve never been big on having any large birthday celebration. I usually prefer to have a quiet celebration with a few people. Two years ago on my birthday I threw myself a party at my apartment and it was the most enjoyable birthday I’d had in years. Although if I’m being honest and thinking about what first comes to mind when I think of a “memorable birthday,” it’s my 10th birthday where I could hardly keep myself from crying because turning 10 made me think about the fleeting quality of life and all the trials of growing old. I was a weird kid.
What about you, readers?
