My birthday is in 11 days, but for the first time, I’m not excited about it. Maybe because it’s on a Sunday. Maybe because I don’t have any plans, aside from a fancy dinner whenever my brother is free. Maybe because I’m turning twenty-three and I’m sorry but twenty-three feels old. Really old. I feel perpetually sixteen. Maybe because this year hasn’t been all that exciting and I feel locked into fear and anxiety.
But I’m going to try to dredge up some birthday spirit because I am a girl who loves birthdays. My birthday, your birthday, pet’s birthdays…it’s always a special day! I’m also super excited about my birthday dinner because I chose The Melting Pot this year, a fondue restaurant that I haven’t been to in years. I’m already craving it!
Onto my wishlist! And since my birthday falls less than a month before Christmas, these are also things that worked their way onto my Christmas wishlist as well.
I could probably add more onto my list, such as a car or a job with Shape magazine, but I’m trying to keep it in the reality zone. Somewhat.
