Birthday wishes and the Inner Diva

It’s my Internet birthday today.


I have always been pretty anti-birthday in general, under the pretense of trying to be low maintenance. I am beginning to believe that is one of the lies I tell myself though– I am actually a High Maintenance Male (HMM). Perhaps I should give in to my inner princess and insist on massive birthday festivities.

Do you think it’s more virtuous to strive for modesty or to honestly embrace one’s inner self?

  2. Everyone has the need to feel special. Birthdays are a culturally agreed upon day where it’s okay to be the center of attention and have it all about “me” as we all have birthdays.

    For me personally, I feel very special and very loved every day of my life, and so my birthday is just another day. I do enjoy making a big fuss over other people on their birthdays though, and they seem to diggit.
