    I Love To.

    I am getting sick of so many people acting like their birthday is a curse.  It is the only day in the year where I feel special!  I like to celebrate others' birthdays too!  With cake and presents and stuff like that.

    Private Celebration

    I always like celebrating my birthday by myself.  It is a way to make sure that I enjoy myself.  I wake up when I want to and plan how I want to spend my day.  I don't have to worry about keeping a schedule or being someplace at a certain time. I spend a great deal of the day...
