I personally don’t really like it when it’s my birthday. The attention and greetings from old and new friends is nice, but all of it is really only for a few minutes. A rush of happiness from each birthday wish you receive from old and new friends, slightly hoping your day might be the day to spark up a conversation and further strengthen your friendship. On the other hand, there is that constant anxiety and anticipation for that certain someone to acknowledge your existence or to even show that some kind of friendship still exists. Sure birthdays are special, but the next 365 just seem dull in comparison.
