♫Happy Birthday to me♫ And to Wentworth Miller. And my celebrity twin, actor Zachary Quinto. Born the same year as well. Of course ♫Happy Birthday to you♫ who’s ever birthday it is today. Birthdays are not the way they used to. When you’re a kid it’s a big deal but not so much when you get older. You don’t even need any presents. All you want is peace in the world and stop the hate. Everyday and not only birthdays.
It’s unbelievable that racism still exists in our society. Not only discrimination against the coloured but also different sexualities, disabled and even age discrimination. What is so difficult to respect people who are different from you? I just don’t get these people who spread hate. How would the world look like if everyone was the same? You don’t need to agree but using violence is stupid. They act like spoilt brats who’s parents never loved. Even if your parents were rotten, it doesn’t mean you have to act the same way. Some people live in the past and it’s pathetic. Everyone has the right to be here and even those haters but please don’t spread it around because you got issues. The worst problem is an attitude problem. I’m glad I’m not one of those people. It’s a waste of energy to hate anyway. Love is all you need, right? If people loved more there wouldn’t need to be a curfew but now because these idiots, people aren’t feeling safe.
This won’t spoil my birthday. Even if nothing much will happen. Only good food and easy evening. So happy birthday to me. Stay safe and don’t let these circumstances let you down.
So here we are again. At my birthday. It’s also a birthday of Prison Break star, Wentworth Miller and actor Zachary Quinto, my birthday twin. I don’t mind having a birthday, it’s the getting older bit that is not so much fun. It means more problems. But I’m not that old though. Age is a number that doesn’t tell you the whole truth. Someone at their 20’s can be as wise as a 40-year-old. Or it can also be the other way around. Young and stupid. It really depends what you’ve been through in your life. If I hadn’t experienced the things I have, I don’t think I would be the way I am today. There are things I haven’t experienced. Like rowing a boat but I fear deep water so I wouldn’t even try it. I haven’t met the people I wanted to meet. To make things short, there is a lot I haven’t done.
Life doesn’t always go as you plan so I stopped planning because it fails anyway. If I have ideas they turn out to be bad. I take the days as they come. I don’t know what I do in 5 years since I don’t even know what I do next week. I have wishes and hopes but I don’t have enough of courage to do them. At least nothing big. Sometimes I hate being so indecisive but I don’t want to think about one thing at a time. I get bored easily so I need stimulation. I wish I was brave enough to get out of the box so to speak. Like trying entrepreneurship. If I don’t do something risky at least once in my life, I will regret it. I don’t want to rush things because then things won’t get rightly done.
So it’s my birthday today. I have never been into parties. Birthdays for me are just that. One year older. This year I baked a cake and going on a cruise with my dad. Daughter and father quality time thing, you know. That’s all the celebration I will have and then go back to normal again. And of course, eat cake. There is no birthday without it.
You’ll never get brassy from me. My birthdays are just normal days. I don’t want any special celebrations. Today I was eating out with dad and that’s as far as birthdays go. I like doing calm things and the older I get, the less fuss I want. I hate loud parties and I prefer being left out of any social gatherings. Luckily I don’t have any friends who can bother me with those. Presents don’t make birthdays either. At least not material things.
As it happens the French Open in tennis going on and my favourite player (Novak Djokovic) had his match today. The best present is seeing him win after a long match. No things will ever compare the happiness it brings. People who don’t watch sport, are missing a lot. Nothing is better than see athletes fighting for a win. Especially if the match or game has been intense. You need to experience it yourself before you can fully understand the feeling sport gives you.
My birthday is over soon and it’s time to get on with life. Birthdays are all the same. They last that one day and then it’s past it. After that it’s back to normal. As normal as life can get because recent happenings in the world isn’t that normal anymore. Everyone has a birthday every day somewhere in the world. That’s nothing to brag about. Birthdays are just one step closer to death. Some live longer than others and for some birthdays are a big deal. People can have a brassy birthday but that’s not me. I like being calm all year around. I find fun in other things. People can celebrate their birthdays the way they want. Have a big party with all you 100 friends or celebrate it with your family. Whatever you do, have a very happy birthday, if you already had it or will in the near future. I’m already one year older than yesterday but doesn’t mean I should feel old. It’s the inside that really counts.
