Or is it just me? Yes, today is my b-day, which is something I really don't get into. Ever since I was a kid, the whole day just makes me feel very uncomfortable. I feel that the people I love know when my birthday is and everyone else doesn't really need to know (OK, with the exception of the Dairy Queen cashier because I want my free Blizzard). I enjoy birthdays for the fact that people I don't often get a chance to speak to in my life call, and I get a day of speaking to people I genuinely love. That's enough for me to make it a good birthday. I don't need a cake, party, or presents. It's not that I don't like those things, but I am of the mindset that if I want to have a party I will have a party, and if today calls for cake for no other reason that I want some then there will be cake (or blood if you get in the way of my cake). I don't need a birthday as an excuse to do all those things because I feel I celebrate my life throughout the year. Maybe I am the only one who acts like this, but I was wondering if there are any other b-day recluses out there too.
