This week around campus, I ran across multiple people that had their birthdays. And it got me thinking. “Would I want my birthday during the semester?” (Mine is during the summer.) The more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that YES, I would like to have my birthday during the semester.
Now granted, you may not get to do that birthday tradition that you usually do, or eat your favorite meal, or spend it with your family. But having a birthday during the semester can be just as special as having it at home.
Your friends will make it special!
Some may throw a surprise pizza party. Some may take you out to eat. Your entire prayer group may make you stand on a chair and sing “Happy Birthday” song to you. You may end up getting very practical gifts such as packaged noodles and instant coffee.
Parents can even get involved by sending a care package to your mailbox. Or, they can order a birthday cake and balloons through the Campus Store.
Whatever the case may be, if your birthday falls in the semester, you will find many enjoyable things that make your birthday special.
I would like to give a shout out to the one who inspired me to write this post. Happy birthday, girl! Hope you had a great day!0
