It's Christmas time again! Here are a few of the best ways to spend your holiday season, and to do it right!
For the past few years, I have seen the same caption on Instagram over and over again about a girl turning 21. Yes, "Twenty fun," is pretty clever, but I'm tired of seeing it. Since my 21st birthday is this week, I was wondering what I should use as an Instagram caption. So, here are 21 Instagram captions that you'll be dying to use for your 21st.
1. R.I.P. Fake ID.
2. Cheers and beers to my 21 years.
3. Do you find me aBOOZing?
4. Pitcher perfect.
5. Hakuna Ma 'Vodka - It means no memories for the rest of your night.
6. Bad and Boozy
7. I make pour decisions.
8. Beer makes me hoppy.
9. IPA lot when I drink.
10. I can finally have a six-pack.
11. Tequila probably won't fix my problems, but it's worth a shot.
12. Sip happens.
13. Let the evening be Gin.
14. Wine not?
15. Whiskey business.
16. Getting into the birthday spirit.
17. If life gives you lemons, add vodka.
18. Here's to the year I won't remember.
19. It's a lot easier to start the day when you know it can now end with beer.
20. Save water, drink beer.
21. Here's to an unBEERleliveable night.
Every year people celebrate their birthday. It's an exciting day for most as you get some gifts and cake and spend it with friends and family. I used to love my birthday. I loved that on that one day, the spotlight was on me. People had to care about me. As I've gotten older though, I found myself caring less and less about my birthday. It's not a day I get excited about.
I've always had a love/hate relationship with my birthday anyway, given that it's on Valentine's Day. So I've always had to share my birthday with all that love and people wanting to spend it with their partner. I believe that the dislike side has grown as well because as I get older and my friends get older, they are all finding someone to be with or starting a family. Therefore, they have someone they want to spend the day with. They want to celebrate with them, not me. I've always had to battle Valentine's Day.
I believe that once you've hit a lot of major milestone birthdays (i.e first, 16th, 18th, 21st) there isn't much to look forward to. It's just another year added to your life.
You realize more and more that you're just getting older.
I'm generally a simple person as well. I don't want a huge party, I don't want fancy gifts, and I really hate people singing to me. I like having the attention, but hate it at the same time. It's a weird feeling to explain. You want to be loved, but don't want it all at once. I don't want all eyes on me.
Of course, there will always be certain parts of my birthday that I really like and do look forward to. My mom gets me the heart-shaped donuts from Dunkin' every year on my birthday. She never forgets because I don't give her the chance to. I always remind her. I do like the fact that I can ask for something, and more often than not get it because it's my birthday.
I don't mean like big gifts either. I mean that I can ask that we have what I want for dinner. That I can ask my mom to spend some one on one time with me. Simple things that I don't usually get.
I don't hate my birthday, I just don't feel as much excitement as I did growing up. It's just another day of the year.
There's just too much effort you have to put into your birthday as you grow older as well. You usually have to plan something yourself, which I don't want to do. I have no idea what I'm supposed to do because I don't want a party and there isn't anything special I ever wish to do. Even if I did want to plan a party inviting people would be a nightmare and trying to make it work for different people is a hassle.
I just think that as you get older, birthday's just aren't worth the trouble.
So, I've accepted the fact that I just don't care. I will enjoy the little things about it, but I won't make a big fuss. It's just another day.
