A Birthday Tradition

Today I turn 25. 2016 was not what I expected it to be. But I won’t complain about it. I have food to eat, clothes to keep me warm, and a roof over my head. The saying is that someone always has it worse than you. I know I’m fortunate, even if I’m still job searching.

My birthday tradition since I’ve been an adult has been to do nothing on my birthday, which is exactly what I’ll be doing today. Just reading, mostly.

Now wish me a happy birthday so I can get back to my book, The Martian. What’s your favorite birthday tradition?
