And so begins the prescheduled posts while I’m in Bangladesh.
This post is a bit different from my usual ones because I’m going to be talking about my real life outside of the blogosphere. Yep, that’s right. I am a real person who isn’t actually a robot inside your computer writing witty posts.
So, as you may know, my birthday was on June 5th. Birthdays are interesting things. Days to celebrate a person’s existence and their aging into a raisin, which is a true accomplishment that most people hope for someday, only to eventually die.
My last two birthdays have been flops as well, so I was hoping for this one to be absolutely amazing. Two years ago, we were in the process of moving from Michigan to Kentucky, so my birthday was somewhat forgotten and I didn’t have a celebration nor party. Last year, my actual birthday happened to fall on the first day of finals, so the actual day was lost in a slew of studying. I did have a party, but it doubled as a going away party because I was moving from one city in Michigan to another city in Michigan the next week, so it wasn’t the happiest of occasions.
I was psyched for this year. (Except for the fact that birthdays force one to confront their own mortality.)
It was floppy. Both my actual birthday and the party.
I feel like I’m being kinda whiney. The intention is for it to be humorous. *Flings humor at you*
A Random Pun From The Internet: What do you call a thieving alligator?… A CROOKODILE. *Ba dum crash* *Crickets*
So as I’m writing this, it’s 6/18/2018, which is also the day after father’s day, which is also the day after my birthday party. I invited about fifteen people. Many of them couldn’t come because of father’s day or other random things they had to do. A couple of people canceled the day before my party.
So overall, we had me, my brother, and Spinette. And we had THREE GUESTS.
And we had three pitchers of drinks.
A relatively large cake.
And six people, three of whom were me, my brother, and Spinette (people who are obligated to come).
At one point, one of them asked when everyone else was going to get there.
My response: *Crickets*
We had fun. It was just kinda…awkward.
Am I allowed to have a redo?
(Also, Spinette got me My Chemical Romance and Twenty One Pilots t-shirts along with a new cactus! I don’t currently have a picture of the new cactus because Spinette is cactus-sitting them while I’m in Bangladesh.)
