Well, yeah. The concept of taking such care to note age, much less, telling anyone precisely how long it's been since we've evacuated our mothers' bodies, is frivolous. Does anyone really need to know that I was swimming in placental juices almost twenty-three years ago? No. I hope not, anyway. Celebrating it is just another way of marking an already-pointless date and number, so I don't see the harm in doing so.

Okay okay....it's my birthday.

Yes, AiYumega is now the ripe old age of, wait for it, 21 years old. Am I going out drinking all night? Gonna rage with some Estonian models and do blow off a dead clown's shoe?

Nope.

I'm not doing anything honestly. My family has this little Pokemon themed party going on for me later on. I did try and get a few friends together, but they're all too busy or otherwise unavailable.

I don't drink so I couldn't care less about that either.

So I gotta ask. Are birthdays overrated? Are they so blown out of proportion most of the time? My philosophy is it's just another day and another day closer to the abyss we call death but anyway do you like birthdays? Do you go all out? Do you have a party?

I haven't had a full blown party for my birthday since I was 3, so 18 years ago.

Yeah.


Edit - Thank you everyone for the happy birthdays



Happy birthday. Gotta get em food

Happy birthday,

enjoy the day however you feel fit (within reason and laws ) If you wish to have a big party or go out or a quiet dinner with family or a few select friends or take a holiday or spend time on your own. It's all good. Oh since we're all mortal we could awaken everyday (not just on birthdays) thinking that we now have one less day to be alive but most don't spend time focusing on that. It's how you live that's important.

I just look at it as "I'm another year closer to death." It isn't a special day. Every year it just makes me sad because the older I get, and how little I've done will continue to look more pathetic lol. I will go out and have dinner (preferably with just my mom) but it isn't something I've gotten excited over since I was like 11 or 12. Sorry if I brought anyone down lol.

Why you do dis right when my birthday's coming up?

I think your birthday's whatever you make it out to be. Whether a big deal or a little one, it's still a nice special occasion.

First of all, happy birthday!
Yes I do think that birthdays are overrated. Birthdays aren't really my thing anyways. Haven't celebrated one in years.
