I think it was High School when 1) Spring Break started in April 2) I stopped bringing cupcakes 3) I had to go to school on my birthday.
Trust me going to school on my birthday and not having a party was the biggest let down of my teenage years totally depressing when the entire school doesn't stop and celebrate your birthday.
Its also when I learned about people having food allergies to sugar and someone else was born on March 17th ( YES! I went thru most of my adolescence thinking I was the ONLY baby born on March 17th )
Trust me in my later adult years did I learn June Weddings meant March Babies.
It is hard to learn that the Sun doesn't get up for you everyday instead its you that has to put up the Sun everyday.
(that may be egotistical but think about it ...who does get that flaming ball up in the sky? 😎 )
Basically, last year I had to work on my birthday and it was not a bad experience but it reminded me that I am not a fan of working on one's birthday. In a tradition I hope to stop next year as I am working again this Friday ( though I might pull a "Its My Birthday I need to leave early excuse" ).
