It's (almost) my birthday. Now what?

Next Wednesday is my birthday, everyone. Yay.

For the first time in my entire life, I feel well, apathetic about my birthday. I have no emotion about it whatsoever. I am not excited, because I have to work that day from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (with two special programs during the day), which does away with any possibility of fun. I am not unhappy, because I really don't care how old or young I am. I am nothing.

That's what I find depressing.

Shouldn't birthdays be fun? Shouldn't I be excited about it? I feel like I SHOULD be. But that's not happening. Does this mean my birthday will not be happy?

I feel like a complete downer. Sorry. I promise I will be funny again, when I am less downtrodden by the summer reading program and miserable heat.


  1. You should be excited, you should! I am vastly older than you are, and my birthdays still get me all twitterpated.

    It's the heat. For SURE it's the heat. How can anyone stand it?

  2. You should be excited!!

    I shall be excited enough for the both of us, because your birthday is a celebration of the fact you're here, and I for one am so, so glad you are.


  3. I will be sure to sing Happy Birthday to you in my head while sweating in the sun with all the other band nerds :)

  4. Thanks, everyone! I am starting to feel a LITTLE more excited about it all, likely because when I left the house this morning, I didn't feel like keeling over from the deathly heat.
