My 17th Birthday!
For me, birthdays mean waking up to calls from family members, attempting to figure out what presents I’ll get, and enjoying all the special attention I receive.
It’s scary to think of how quickly time flies. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I used to come home from school and play imagination games for hours on end? Now I’m expected to get my driving license, decide what I want to study at university, get a job… I miss the carefree days of childhood when I had barely any responsibilities or stress. Sigh.
I’m not really doing anything special for my birthday at the moment – I’m recovering from a cold and have a math test to study for. But, despite all that, I’m trying my best to just sit back and enjoy the day.
What do you do on your birthday? I’d love to hear from you!
