So my birthday is in about a week. And it's giving me some stress. I live in a university. The extra attention is weird. Also, since the social norms dictate, I know my friends will organise a party because "I'll be expecting something". But I've decided that I don't like birthdays. They are a great opportunity to have expectations and be disappointed. I have had some really bad experiences in the past. So I've decided if people wanna show me how much they love, just do it randomly sometime with sweet gestures here n there.
So I just texted my closest friends to not organise anything. I don't want that stress. I hope they listen to me. I also plan to switch my phone off, well I could be in the mountains where there is no network right. So I won't know who called who didn't, and I'll be happy. Anyway it's end of University for me and am working hard to keep up my grades. So I don't need distractions.
Thoughts? Say it if I sound stupid to you?
