The past two weekends were devoted to birthdays. First, I celebrated my 30th birthday starting on a Saturday night until Monday night. Then, this last weekend (18th of October), I attended a kid’s birthday party.

I’ve lived many years dependent on it during events, non-events, or even the daily routine. I see an army of Coke cans or bottles and my heart pumps faster in excitement.
