Twenty Six


Birthday's are weird for me. I always love my actual birthday and getting to celebrate with family or friends, but I'm not the typical person that counts down the days until my birthday, or waits (with anticipation) as the day quickly approaches. To me, it's just another day.

Honestly, I don't like being the center of attention. I'd much rather blend into a crowd of people than have people 'celebrate' me, or anything along those lines (this will make for a very interesting wedding (whenever I get married)). Anyway.

My birthday is two days away, and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing for my birthday. All of my family is across the country, so I won't be spending it with them. All of my friends are spread out across North America, so I won't be celebrating with all of them either. I know that Justin and Amanda have something in store for me - but I have no idea what it is. And yes, it gives me slight anxiety. I'd much rather plan someone else's birthday and make THEIR day special than do something for my own birthday. I'm weird, I know.

Justin's birthday is 6 days after mine, and I have most of the details planned out for his 'big day', and I'm honestly more excited for his special day of the year, than I am for mine.

A birthday is just another day of the year. Nothing too crazy, nothing too 'over the top', but it's a nice day to feel special and feel loved - so I guess I'll just embrace that.

I might as well enjoy my last 48 hours of being a quarter of a century. On Wednesday I'll be a whole step close to 30 - yikes.

I just realized that I actually sound depressed about my birthday - totally not what I was going for, just writing out my birthday thoughts.

Happy early birthday, Faith! I'm the same way about having people celebrate me, and it did make for a very interesting wedding day! haha

I always have slightly high expectations and usually feel a little disappointed #beinghonest. But HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL. I know 26 is going to be amazing for you!

I don't think you sound depressed about it at all.
26 is still very young though. I sound like I'm 60, lol! Enjoy your, and your boyfriend's birthday as much as you can. You don't have to do special things because it's your birthday. Going out to a nice restaurant is good enough.

I get it. Although I'm the opposite of you - I love having the attention on me.... although I am shy, I love people to be talking about me (in a good way) and worrying about my birthday. Does that make me bad? Anyway, I hope you have a great birthday since it is the best day of the year (Oct. 1st that is)!
