I'm a fan of other people's birthdays, just not my own.
Don't get me wrong: I actually absolutely love that I was born on Valentine's Day because it gives me reason to always celebrate it and one of my best friend's has the same day of birth. I just don't like when others make a big deal about my big day. The idea of a surprise party actually makes me shudder. Shouldn't it be my mom you're praising each year? She's half of the reason I'm here anyways.
I stumbled upon this girl, Robyn, and her "Birthday Project." Now I know exactly how I am going to be spending my 28th birthday come February of 2012: 28 random acts of kindness coming right up.
I can't think of any cooler way to tack on another year of life.
