Birthdays have never been a big deal for me. I really only had parties when I was younger to keep my social index high. I rarely if ever told anyone it was my birthday on the day of, which usually lead to confused and almost angry responses like, "Why didn't you tell me?!"
I went through another birthday, and I do appreciate the well wishes from my friends, but I enjoyed a simple weekend with my family.
I have never been one for parties... I suppose I don't like all the attention.
