Today is my birthday and as I sit here reflecting on my life I'd like to of course thank the Lord for reaching 27 and also for granting me a mind of my own..

Last night was unlike any other night I experienced entering my birthday as an adult. You're probably wondering what I did. Did I go get drunk somewhere? Was I at a club? Maybe I was having a 5 some (A bit of a stretch, but possible)? Or maybe some combination of the 3? Well if you guessed I did none of these things (especially a 5 some, like come on now) then you are absolutely right. 

I rang in my birthday chilling and watching animated DC movies. These are things I enjoy doing. Now, I'm not saying that I don't enjoy the things I mentioned in the previous paragraph (especially having a 5 some that would be dope. Alright last time I'm bringing that up I promise) but it just didn't interest me at the time. You're probably thinking "E, you of all people how could you be so lame on your birthday?!". Well it's because your birthday belongs to you and you should celebrate it however you'd like to while staying within yourself. There's so many times during previous birthdays I followed the norm and clubbed or got sloppy drunk just cause I felt like I had to cause it was my birthday, regardless of how I was feeling at the time. But as you get older you start to realize that birthdays mean a lot, but you have to enjoy it in a sense able way. 

Too many times people make careless mistakes with the excuse that it's their birthday as if they won't have to suffer consequences for the remaining days of the year. Don't go blowing your rent money on some new mikes just to look good at your birthday party and be homeless the next day. And don't go off and do some dumb shit that would set off people you care about, because you will have to deal with what you did at a later time (trust me on that one).

I'm not saying don't turn up or go out on your birthday cause I enjoy doing that myself, I'm just advising you to remember to think of the bigger picture. Party, but be considerate of those you care about especially if you are in a relationship. Spend money, but do what you can afford. And any other thing you are thinking of doing, if it sounds like a bad idea and you think to yourself "Well it's my birthday, I'm going to do it anyway" chances are you probably shouldn't do it. Don't risk it all just cause its your born day because although it is the most important day of the year, at the end of that day.. It's just another day. Enjoy it within your means.
