I know some of you are sitting there and thinking….Mar it’s not even Halloween yet, why are you posting Guy Fawkes day images already? And besides…you’re American! Well yes you’re right on both accounts BUT the 5th of November does have special meaning to me. It’s my birthday.
I’ll be 22 this year, and I can’t decide if I’m excited or not. Now..I LOVE other peoples birthdays. I love getting them gifts (half the time I give them early because I’m so excited) and I love trying to plan stuff.
Ironically, I don’t like my birthday. I get a little excited every year and get let down. Every boyfriend I’ve ever had has forgotten my birthday. (okay except one, but that was a messed up situation anyway). So this year, I’ve decided to do things differently. I’m not going to hope other people make plans for me…I’m going to make them for myself!
Fun Fact: I was originally supposed to be a Halloween baby, but I was a little stubborn and got Guy Fawkes day instead.
I plan on waking up early (totally out of character for me) and climbing Phoenix’s Camelback mountain. I’m starting a new job a couple days after my birthday, and I’m hoping this climb by myself will be a bit symbolic. I then plan on washing away the climb (and being 21 years old) in a shower and taking a nap. I’ll probably do some blog work. Holla’ at the blog fam! And then going to get my all time favorite pizza! Sounds simple, but I’m excited to treat myself to a simple birthday. Even if it’s a little ways away!
I believe each day is what you make of it. So I’m going to treat this as the beginning of what will certainly be the best year yet! And ya know what? If people forget again this year, it’ll be okay because I already did something that morning that many people shy away from!
This is a year to accomplish goals and check stuff off my bucketlist!
What do you guys have planned for your birthday? Anyone else a 5th of November baby?
Stay Sunny ❤
