What happens on your birthday is a reflection of what has happened your whole life – that’s what I learned today
It’s 7: 30 PM on day 559 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature,prepare and publish my Kid of the Week feature, feed myself a uzhunnu vada–a savory Indian doughnut – and chutney for breakfast, brush my teeth, tweet about my 21 For 21 Campaign - no luck - feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch This Means War – a raunchy romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy it was basically about two CIA agents who fall for the same girl I really liked it was really funny and the ending was refreshing nobody ended up being the loser - at the Hemingways Mall and feed myself a McDonald’s vegetable burger for dinner – I have switched from being vegan to being a vagetarian for lent (being vegan is just to extreme for me when you’re vegan you basically give up everything you eat meat, eggs yogurt, cheese ect) - continue to tweet about my campaign – Justina (@justinav) made a donation (thanks Justina I really appreciate it) (21 x 9 = 189 x 4 = 756 cups of food for the hungry = a very happy twenty-one-year-old) (Note: I extended my campaign to midnight to give more people a chance to donate I will donate all the money raised to the United Nations World Food Programme first thing tomorrow morning).
As you know today is my 21st birthday and you would think my whole family is with me right now but you know where my father, sister and brother are right now…. they are at the gym – my dad just bought a cake said Happy Birthday and left with my sister and brother - I suppose I shouldn’t have expected anything different it’s pretty much always just been my mom and I although my sister and I are going to the movies this afternoon that’s something I guess, what really makes me sad is that people on Twitter seem to care more about my birthday than my family does (see some of the tweets sent to me below). Do you see the truth of your life every year on your birthday?
