Tomorrow is my birthday.
There I went and said it. I don't like to shove this in peoples faces. I realized long ago that once your an adult and you don't live at home, celebrating your birthday is really a private thing. That to make others go out of their way is impolite.
But that doesn't mean the event should just slip on by.
For the next 4 years my birthday will continue to land on a weekday, so in my opinion the celebrating will be calm. BK is going to stop on by after I get off work to eat dinner with me.
All in all it is giving me a feeling of amazement.
When one's birthday comes along I think it is important to self-reflect on the moment and think what you were doing on your last birthday.
Last year I didn't really have a spectacular birthday. It kind of passed by with the sunset. Speaking of which here is a picture of me from my birthday in 2006, before I became reallly ill:
I tried to find a picture of me from last year around this time but didn't succeed.
I can't blame the world around me for a lousy birthday. If I want to make it a huge splash I should throw the stone first.
Anyways, I should think of a proper birthday wish ;)
All in all though I am really grateful to be in a foreign country living out my days amongst another world!
