Besides the Ascension . . .

17 May 2007

it’s also my birthday.  Happy Birthday to me.  Thank you.

Although I like and enjoy my birthday quite a bit, when I teach on my birthday (as I usually do), I can’t make a big deal because my high school students would make it a ruse for disrupting and otherwise wasting class.  So, for most of my day, my birthday will be celebrated quietly.

What really surprises me about my birthday is how little I care about how old I am now.  I am 29 today.  I’ve seen many people be very excited about getting older.  I’ve seen people dread getting older.  And both these feelings seem to come to a head about the time of the birthday.

Yet for me they are surprisingly absent.  I’m ambivalent about getting older, but I’m pretty damn excited about living.
