Birthday Party!!

So it’s my birthday, see?

And I was thinking about how these things always seem to be made out to be more than they are…people keep asking me, do you feel different?? hahaha, and I do! I feel so hopeful, excited and optimistic about the future!! I never felt comfortable in my own skin as a kid, I really didn’t see myself very well, I had a very poor self-image, and my self-esteem was never very high! It’s funny, I was realizing today that, as I get older, if I’m really honest with myself, I think I kind of stopped growing emotionally when I was about 11!

So, now that I am marking a birthday, which is supposed to signify that you are a year OLDER, I feel like I am only just admiting to myself how young and immature I really am – how much I DON’T know!

Well, I guess that is kind of a sign of maturity, isn’t it?

Funny, that….

  1. Happy Birthday Mark!!!! (yay 1st comment!)

    lol that’s how I feel on my birthdays too! When the clock turns 12 or when I wake up on my birthdays, I kinda pause for a second and half expect to feel different or have a sudden epiphany or just have SOMETHING be different. but of course nothing ever changes. But I guess it’s cuz we do most of our changing subtly throughout the year that birthdays are just ‘a day in the process of’. kinda like the whole new year’s resolutions u were talking about.

    But it’s always nice to have an excuse to celebrate. And get presents 🙂

  2. Mark, happy birthday!!! i had no idea! haha that just shows how much of a fan i really am :p

    anyways, i hope you had an awesome time and i wish you many, many, many more epiphanic birthdays to come 🙂

  3. Man, I can’t believe I missed your birthday!!!! >_____________< I hope you had a good one!

  4. Birthdays, for me, are a little hopeless. As the ‘planner’ of my group, I kind of set up all of the little get-togethers that everyone wants to have. It’s the same with my 20th birthday (which was 1/12/08). LOL. I feel kinda silly and old for being the only one who can plan my birthday party. God forbid my friends try another ‘Surprise Party’ fiasco. That was a mess that still scars me to this day. Have you ever seen a penguin cake melted with a roman candle? Yeah. Never again. XD

    Anyway, Happy Belated Birthday and seeing as how it’s already February, Happy Valentine’s Day. ^_^
