|06:44 pm - Because I can. . .|
You know, I turn 25 on Friday.
Usually, I don't ask for anything. Usually, I avoid my birthday. In fact, I tend to dislike it.
But I turn 25 this year. Therefore, I have decided that celebration might be in order, what with me being a full quarter of a century old.
And what with the fact that I don't plan to celebrate another birthday until I turn 100, I thought this was as good a time as any to celebrate one.
For those interested in helping to make my birthday happy, feel free. I won't complain this year as I have in the past, promise.
I'll even link you to my Amazon.Com Wish List. You know. For convenience.
As far as why I usually don't like birthdays? I don't like people feeling the need to get me stuff. I don't mind receiving things, or having people buy me stuff, but I mind that people feel that they MUST buy me things because it's my birthday, or because I graduated, or because it's Christmas. Really, I hate all the gift giving holidays for just this reason.
So if you get me something, do it because you want to, not out of some misplaced obligation. It'll mean a lot more to me. And it'll mean a lot to me if you just don't get me anything simply because you don't want to. That's the point, after all.
What will I do to actually celebrate?
Shit, I don't know. Got any ideas?
Whatever I do, though, you'll all be invited.
Watch this journal. When I figure something out, you'll know.
Unless I get lazy and forget.

I like white chocolate, but really dislike most other chocolates.
Vanilla is the name of my game. . . :)
Who would have guessed that, huh?
