In six more days I'm turning 19 for the eighth year in a row. I am actually quite happy about it, though I am pretty sure that the reason for my joy has more to do with the fact that it is a long weekend and I am going away rather than the actual birthday itself. Also the fact that I've been opening birthday presents for a week now doesn't hurt either ;)
In standard Annush M.O. I am going to have two birthday soirees and random events to follow: the soiree in New York (Thursday night) and the one in Santo Domingo (Saturday night). Then on Sunday a lazy day at the beach, and then next week the raspberry tiramisu party...
...it will be good :)
The thing that's really bothering me about my NY birthday celebration is that due to the long weekend most people will be away and what could have been a REALLY good party will end up being a very upbeat, albeit small, gathering. Happens every year. It's kinda sad in a way. As if it's not bad enough that my NY friends make a small pocentage of my friends in general, I can only have a fraction of them together at the same time. So sad!
But whatever. I'll go out, I'll have fun and it will be great. At least I know for a fact that my two best and oldest friends (Dan and Kristhina) will be there with me making sure I have a damn good time. Everyone else will be a welcome addition and all of those who won't be able to make it will certainly be missed.
As usual, I won't have that kind of problems with the Saturday night soiree ;)
Nobody ever says no to a day at the beach, and next week, we'll have my raspberry tiramisu party.
I have spent the past week all bummed out about the ghosts of birthdays past and I failed to notice just how lucky I am...indeed, lucky I am.
