Today I Turn Sixteen

I could give you an extremely long detailed post about how important and how different I feel today, but to be quite honest, this morning I was awoken at 6:10 with a weary “Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaappy birthday to—please wake up”, and I ate eggs with ham and went to school and came back and made myself my own birthday cake.

For some reason, I’ve been taking my sixteenth birthday quite nonchalantly.  It wasn’t until last night that I realized that I could remember exactly how my fifteenth birthday went down, that I became worried—my fifteenth birthday was the worst one ever, and I did nothing exciting.  There went the “fun fifteen”!  So, last night, at 10 p.m., nauseous at my apathetic feelings towards this birthday, I popped “Sixteen Candles”, found my Molly Ringwald hat, and proceeded to “Ommmmmm” my way to sleep.

However, Sixteen Candles didn’t help.  I still wasn’t convinced I was going to have a successful day.  It did, however, remind me of how much I love Anthony Michael Hall:

The Geek: [noticing the car Jake puts Caroline in] This, uh, this your car, Jake?
Jake: No, this is my dad's car. You said you couldn't drive a stick.
The Geek: This is a motherfu - ! This is a Rolls Royce, Jake.
Jake: So?
The Geek: SO? So? I hear the grill ALONE costs five grand on this. Five grand! You have five grand? I don't have five grand!
Jake: Then don't hit anything.
The Geek: [incredulous] Ha ha! Don't hit anything.

Also, today’s celebrity's birthdays include:

  • Rupert Grint (how incredibly convenient, my husband and I share a birthday)
  • John Green
  • Chad Michael Murray
  • Jorge Luis Borges

So far, nothing’s changed.  Not even my chest.  I channeled too much Samantha Baker, I guess.

  3. Aw, happy birthday, girlie! Haha, I was the same way when I was about to turn eighteen. Though it was more along the lines of, "Holy crap, Im about to become an adult! I don't know what I'm doing! What am I gonna do? What do I doooooo!?"

    Anywho, have a happy birthday!

  5. Hehehehe, you're hilarious. Happy Birthday to you. I hope you'll have a bloody good year... I myself never really do anything special on the day... unless eating a ridiculous amount of food counts?

    Anyway, just to make you feel a little awkward... I can't believe you've only turned 16. (this is number 3 in your comment box saying this... now you have to start doubting why everybody is so shocked... no no just kidding. ...maybe.)

  13. Yaaaaay! Happy birthday! Hope you had a good one. I still remember my 16th birthday (I'm 23 now)... it was spent doing a huge project for Pre-Calculus. It was awful. And it was on a weekend, so I didn't even get to see my friends at school or anything. Ah well, in the long run, it doesn't really matter to me. ;) But I hope you had a great 16th!
