Normally I am not one to get excited about birthdays. In my eyes there really is not much to be excited about. When I ask people what there is to be excited about, I always get the same answer:
'You should be excited to be alive for another year.' I would be lying if I said that I am not happy to have made another year, but as you get older the fun starts to fade.
"You just like to suck the fun out of everything. You have reached a new low. You can not even enjoy your birthday? What the hell is wrong with you? If there is any day for you to be psyched it should be this day. THIS IS THE DAY YOU WERE BORN DAMMIT!!!"
This is just the way I am. I can not help it.
"You are a sad sad man."
This year is different from other birthdays in recent memory.
"So you are excited this year? What makes this year so special?"
MY BROTHER CAME TO VISIT ME!!!
I have not talked much about my brother, but he is everything you would ever want in an older brother. He has looked out for me my entire life and we have always been best friends. I do not think I could ask for a better role model.
What makes this visit special for me is that normally when I go home it is for special occasions and he is always with his daughter so we do not have much time for just us to hang out. While he is here we will have plenty of time to hang out alone.
Well...today's my birthday and I am not going to sit here and type on this computer as the day wastes away.
Until next time.
