My birthday is fast approaching.
my mom keeps asking what I want.
I am more concerned about the age number.
Yes, I know... it's not a big one.
YES, I KNOW that a lot of people are older than me...
But I also know that I can never see past a 3 month period of time so looking back 24 years is a frighteningly long stretch of time.
I'm old. I've been old for a long time. I've already had my own little midlife crisis... its name is Texas and I remember it fondly, but with a big blush.
age is just a number when you're 16 and you want to be deemed old enough to run with the big kids. But when you're 24 and start realizing that no one is going to step in and stop the test anytime soon... well... age is a fuck of a lot more than a number.

i had hysterical freakouts for my 22, 23, and 24 birthdays.

i was set to have another for 25, but it came and went without incident.

and then my last one - i got depressed, not b/c i was older, but b/c i ended up working and not doing anything for my bday.

ah, well that won't be an issue.
The only time I've ever done anything for my birthday it wasn't actually on my birthday.
When I turned 21, I was visiting my sister in DC a week later and she suprised me with tickets to RENT at the National Theater for its first show of the first touring company.

And it was excellent.

But other than that, I've never had a party or event or anything on my birthday. I usually get a few things from family and a cake.
