I don’t seriously know how odd it sounds when I write a post on my blog kind of announcing my birthday. But I’m sure that it may look a little odd when I say that 5th June is an ordinary day that others might call my birthday.

Now, there is no reason as to why I say this is an ordinary day. I don’t remember much of my childhood, but I don’t remember any of this day to have any least thing to be special or memorable. I think it’s just yet another day with a special tag on calendar, though a few people remember it.

However, if you take it seriously, it’s true. I heard people saying “Many many happy returns of the day!” Well, even if they don’t wish this, the day will return no matter what. Even if your lifespan is over, the day will always be there on the right time of the year. Maybe I’m a bit over-understanding this. But let it pass. It’s still okay with me.

After all, am I sad because my birthday brings no memorable difference to me? No. Don’t ask me why. The answer is most likely that I’m used to it. And I also don’t miss the things that others cannot imagine a birthday without. In fact, life is different for every different person in the world. Take it as a good example for the next time you talk about this with someone.

  1. Happy Birthday Sajib!

    I don’t know if we have a same feeling towards birthday but when my day comes I don’t anticipate it. Heck, if I can, I won’t celebrate my birthday. I feel odd when I go to school then everybody greets me. Feels odd. :]

    1. My school friends usually don’t know the date of my birthday. Couple of them do know but don’t bother to remember it. And I don’t bother to remind them of my birthday. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. I guess we are totally opposite from my classmate last year. She wants people to remember her birthday, she even wants gifts. To be able to have a success, she informed us months before. But I guess I would admire her passion on the day she is born and that passion is definitely not for me. :]

  3. Sajib, maybe in your culture birthdays are not that celebrated? I think many cultures make a big deal of birthdays, and many do not. Either way, it’s a good time for people to send you good wishes. So I send my good wishes to you for a year of happiness and health.

    1. Not really, birthdays are celebrated like a crazy occasion here in our country. What I was talking about was just me. It’s not like the other ones when it comes to me.

      Thank you for all the good wishes you are sending me. Although I say things of sorrow, it doesn’t really feel bad when someone wishes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I relate with this, birthdays always made me a little sad for no obvious reason, perhaps the lack of excitement or difference, the fact it brought no change that an average day could not. Every average day marks one’s getting older (hopefully wiser), and so equally should be celebrated or ignored depending on one’s outlook.

    Happy belated birthday nonetheless =) and Happy Average Day for tomorrow!

    1. You in my blog! It’s been so long since you last commented. You’re right, perhaps I feel a little sad because of the lack of difference. Anyway, thanks for wishing me in a brand new way (average ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). ๐Ÿ˜€ And thanks for stopping by after a long time.
