I am counting the days. Six days more to go and I will be celebrating my birthday. It is like it was only yesterday that I celebrated my birthday and now I am turning a year older again. Another chapter of my life is about to open. I am not worrying. In fact, I am excited. I am not afraid to get old although a lot of women fear old age. There are also women who hide their real age. Well, not me. If somebody asks me about my age, I would readily tell how old I am.
Since I started working, I always give myself a gift on my birthday. No matter how small or big the gift is but if it makes me happy then I would buy it for myself. Last year, I bought a bracelet and laptop for myself. This year, I already have an idea for a gift. I am considering a laptop bag and a bag for my books. Well anyway, what if I will just buy myself a mantle clock? Not a bad idea either. I do not want a party. I only wanted to celebrate my birthday with my family; nothing luxurious as I am not used to it. I would rather use my money to pay my tuition that spend it on having a party which is not a good thing to do when you are financially tight.
I believe that my birthday will just pass without doing anything fancy like having a lavish celebration. What is important is to give thanks to God for giving me another year to live.
