Welcome to my life.
It seems as though everyone's birthday is in September, and lately I've been going to a lot of birthday parties. I haven't gone to an actual birthday party in a really long time. It seems as I get older there are less and less, and I actually forgot how much fun they are! For my friends birthdays we normally just go out for dinner or we don't make time to celebrate it at all because it's "not a big age" (whatever that means). I completely disagree with that though; I think every year of your life is something that should be celebrated. It's so fun when you actually go out and do something or have cake at someone's house. I just went to a roller skating party by the Brooklyn bridge and I had such a fun time! Even though I'm not the best roller skater, ( I only fell on my but like 8 times) it was so fun laughing at each other with my friends and doing something we wouldn't normally do. And having house parties is also adorable! With cake, good music and your best friends, what could be better? At another one I went to a few weeks ago, we laughed and ate at this really good burger place on the upper west side and then went to my friends house for cake and sang along to the Hamilton record (her gift). I even made a bunch of friends with people that I hadn't even known were in my grade AND went to my school! I had such a good time, I went home smiling! It's amazing how much joy you get out of such little things. Birthday parties are such a great opportunity to act silly and just have fun celebrating your friend, so why don't we as teenagers do it as often? Do we not think that we're worth the celebration? Is it just not "cool"? If that's the case, than that's just stupid. I personally think it's cool to value these years that we get to not have too many responsibilities and giggle over stupid things and eat candy. Overall, if you're lucky enough to have someone you love to be with, than you should celebrate them. But that's just my opinion.
