First of all, it’s 4th of July, happy birthday America! My neighbors have already started celebrating it early last night. Setting off fireworks and firecrackers, which scared me since I wasn’t expecting it. I assume it is going to be even crazier tonight. It is USA’s 238th birthday since gaining independence from Great Britain.
My birthday was about two months ago in May when I turned 30. I’m not a big party person. I like to keep it quiet. As I get older, I want less attention on my birthday. I don’t see the need for a big celebration. It’s another reminder that I’m not young anymore. A birthday party for me means going out to dinner, eating delicious food, and drinking something alcoholic. No need for cake since I’m not a big cake person. American cakes are too sweet for my taste buds (looking at you, Costco cakes). Just take me to a homemade ice cream shop and I’m a happy birthday girl. An even better birthday dinner would be going to a Korean BBQ place and drink few shots of soju.
I am not a people person. I don’t mind socializing with people, but it can be exhausting. That is probably why I don’t like having big parties. Too many stress and exhaustion. A small party is fine with me. Just keep it low-key.
