My Birthday Week!

 Monday, August 20, 2012

Today starts the first day of my Birthday week! I have always celebrated my birthday to the extreme and expected my family to understand that my birthday is a large enough occasion for a week if not a month (yes, years ago I insisted on a month). 

This year I am turning an uneventful age. No new perks of adulthood are greeting me but yet I am excited to be a year older.


I have a mixed relationship with my birthdays. I get excited for my big day and make the occasion a large ordeal in my mind. I plan the perfect thing to wear and what I want to do on my special day. Then my birthday eve comes and *poof* I am non-committal. Everything I planned and picked for the day doesn't seem like enough and suddenly I have no energy or want for the day. On the day of my birthday I usually feel saddened that the day has come and all my spirit towards it has already passed. I feel sorry that nothing I will do that day will feel worthy of a birthday. Unfortunately this happens every year but this year I have come to expect that sequence and for that I am satisfied.

So in otherwords I am going to make a big deal out of a small day and I expect you, my precious Preppy Student followers, to help me celebrate this new year right.

I have decided to give up one of my 1 month Sponsorship packages. The package comes with a 175x175 button on my sidebar, a banner in my Current Sponsor page, and a full length post all about the lucky winner for the Month of September.
