I love my birthday and I wish it was my birthday every single day. I’m just one of these people who really look forward to it every year and yes, I like to go all out. Tiara and all. It get’s me super excited and I plan and organize a lot to make sure that everything will be perfect. And who doesn’t like when the world evolves around them, for a while?!
It’s been almost a week now since I turned 28 and I’m still in a little post-birthday blues. It pretty much happens every year as soon as I realize that my special day is over. I love getting messages, presents, eating cupcakes and have my friends around me. That is the main reason why I wish my birthday was everyday. I want to hang out my friends. I love having my group around me and we just laugh a lot and reflect on all the years we’ve known each other. I admit, birthday parties used to be a lot more wild but sometimes, having a little girl’s night can be so much more fun.
This year, I had a pajama party with a ton of food, which this year, I proudly made pretty much all myself, drinks and games. Boy, did we laugh a lot. It’s just so nice to realize how well you actually know each other. I mean, my best friend and me have known each other for 18 years now. She knows me better than any other person in the world and it just means a lot to have her and others around me. I just miss when we were all younger, lived close to each other and had a lot more time. Now, I’m the only one who has time, so I wish I could celebrate my birthday with friends, even more.
How do I know that I have the post-birthday blues? I went from being super motivated during the days that lead up to my birthday, to not even having motivation at all. Also, the day after my birthday is Valentine’s Day, which doesn’t make it a lot better. It takes me days to clean up everything because I want to hang on to it, a little more. Man, I sound like a psychopath who wants to kidnap her friends and lock them into her room, and maybe that is exactly what I would love to do. Since that’s not possible, I always look forward to my birthday and always make sure to plan something.
I’m slowly realizing that it’s over and that nobody is wishing me a belated happy birthday, anymore. There will probably be 1-2 late presents though, which are awesome. They make it last longer. I had a present in the mail today and it felt great. It’s so sweet to see who actually cares. I mean, I have a list for it and I can tell who didn’t give a damn. But there are people that matter and people that don’t and all my lovies were super sweet and I received really nice messages. If people tell you to stay just the way you are, that’s the greatest compliment ever. I’m already looking forward to my next birthday.
