I am 32 today.
It’s sunny, so that’s an excellent start. I also just opened all my presents, and there were some really cool things in there, so also good. I have lunch plans and dinner plans, so there’s more to look forward to yet. This day has quality potential.
It is 7:15 am. I have to go to work, which sucks because I truly believe that one’s birthday should be a personal holiday, but because I work in accounting, I can’t take days off near month-end. But I will not let it get me down.
I actually am having some of those gloomy birthday thoughts that other people always seem to have and that I have never had before: thoughts about getting older and figuring out what to do with my life and whether I should start investigating wrinkle creams and seriously committing to a financial plan for my retirement or something.
Whatever. Today there were presents and cards for me. Later there will be cake. Life is good.
