Some are good. Some are not so good.
This birthday was not so good. It's true. But we're going to Cabo and will celebrate down there, so I'm hopeful that it'll help to make this 30th birthday memory a better one. Pfft!
Onto the fact that I've never liked my birthday. Even as a kid, I didn't like the attention. I still don't like the attention. I have super low expectations for my birthday and actually like it that way... it just works better for me. I guess I had a little bit higher hopes for my 30th. Shame on me. But on a good note, I got a relaxing and deep massage that much needed and that made my day a lot better!
So, I will be posting no pictures from my birthday because I didn't take any :)
You know what I noticed on my birthday though? Hardly anyone called me this year. I got tons of love on facebook and several texts, but very few phone calls. It kind of showed me who the important people in my life are... or who I am important to. A text is great, don't get me wrong! And from some people, a text is all I would want anyway. But facebook? When did facebook become the way to celebrate someone YOU KNOW IN REAL LIFE's birthday??? I think it's super sweet when people from high school, college and even some of my bloggy friends wished me a happy birthday on facebook -- I loved it and appreciate it to know end! But I received so many facebook comments from people I'm friends with in real life... people who's friendship I value... people who are important in my life...... people who I thought I was important to...... and all they did is say "Happy Birthday" on a facebook comment, just like people from high school did who I haven't spoken to in over 10 years? I loved the private facebook messages and the e-mails I got -- that was super thoughtful! But a quick comment saying "Happy Birthday" from a real friend was just kind of sad to me. I celebrate my friends every chance I get and maybe these friendships are one-sided. Hmmm. Or maybe I'm being sensitive. Maybe technology really is taking over. I just don't get it. All I know is that I am putting way more effort into those friends who picked up the phone and left me a voicemail on my birthday. Even those who sent a text message, email or facebook message are going to get more love from me.
Don't you fret, I've totally snapped out of it. My birthday was just a bad day, and I've spent the weekend in San Francisco and am currently en route back home to my family - Bryan and Cali. I really miss them.....
