Happy Birthday to me.

It's my birthday tomorrow and I turn 22. I'm not sure if there's an significant milestone that I reach upon turning this age. If you know of any, do tell me in the comments below.

But in the meantime, I guess we should be celebrating or something?


No really, I think as I grew older I began to shy away from birthdays and all the attention that comes from it. I refuse to tell people I know in real life the actual date, and for those who do know, I am completely useless in what I want for gifts. My default responses are "Nothing" or "Get something for Theresa".

I prefer to give gifts. Receiving just feels odd. Like it's some kind of weird obligation. And this year may be my best year of avoiding people yet.


See, another thing about me is that I'm extremely difficult to buy for, mostly because I'm so unhelpful. Unless you're talk to me on a near daily basis you're not going to know what to get me or where to get it. So that's why most people will head over and ask Theresa what to get me.

But Theresa is far away in China right now. With terrible internet I might add. Sometimes I go days without hearing from her so good luck to anyone else trying to communicate with her. Oh, and with Theresa in China she can't get me anything. Really no point seeing as I'll be going in a few weeks myself.

Hahaha! I'm so clever!

Well, happy birthday to me. I'm cutting this post short because of that. I'll see you guys on Friday.

    anyway, there is indeed a significant reason why you should celebrate your birthday because not everyone do get a chance to live this far :)

  5. Happy birthday to you indeed. I'm tough to buy for too, but I don't think anyone has tried asking Jessie what to get me yet. My dad usually gets me something i ask for but my mum and sisters often have no clue.

  7. That is awesome. I do the same thing...except that nobody knows when my birthday is. Why should people be giving me things? I didn't do anything to deserve it. Give something to my mom...she did all the work!

  12. Happy Birhtday! I too don't tell people my b-day date and don't care for gifts.

    22 is not a particularly special year but I think 23 is the year you officially become old, so enjoy your youth!

  19. Happy Birthday you! I think it would be fun buying you a gift lol. It could be something really outlandish that you would never expect.

    One of my uncles was buying a Christmas gift for another uncle. When uncle A asked uncle B what he wanted - B said "anything". So A bought him a donkey. No joke. It was hilarious - and since A lived just outside of the city he actually kept it until the donkey died a few years ago.

    Want a donkey? ;-)

  20. Happy Birthday to you!!! Hoping that avoiding this process of receiving presents will bring you even more happiness! I also feel pleased while giving presents more than while getting them. I think there is something special about it :)
