19

The clock reads 1:53am and the date is the 5th of march, which coincidentally happens to the day I was born. Nineteen whole years ago.

I can't believe I'm on the threshold of adulthood. What's even more unbelievable is the fact that I just used the phrase 'threshold of adulthood'. Am I really getting that old?

The birthday feeling still hasn't set in as yet for some reason. I don't feel anything except a weird numbness, like its just another day, but somehow is different, just not in a very significant way. If the previous sentence sounded like crap to you, then it probably is. Like I said I'm so numb, I can't even fell the keys while typing this out, so it probably is just a load of rubbish.

I reread what I 'd just written, and they sound like the words of an emotionless cynic, which I am not, most of the time at least. I think the time of the day (or the night in this case) does that to you. So it isn't exactly my fault. That's my latest trick, by the way, blaming stuff on the time. Is it working?

If by now you're wondering why you're still here, reading the words of a psychotic 'almost adult', I don't blame you. But please, stay and wish me a Happy Birthday, I'm sure it'll make my day however cynical I may seem.

Happy Birthday Lemon! Hope it turns out to be the most wickedest birthday ever!

And don't worry about it being uneventful. See, your trick of blaming stuff on time is working pretty well. So by the time it's morning and everyone wakes up and wishes you, it'll all be good and nice and special. See, so many good things happened for you. You got a new Laptop, India won the U-19 World Cup, the senior guys won the tour in Australia, Sensex crashed 1200 odd points in a couple of days. So many eventful things are happening, so relax and don't think too much. :P

So, I wish you many more sweet and sour things in life, and always be what you are, that's the deal. Nothing else is really important. And before someone starts thinking I'm a preacher or something, I should run away and start studying. Or maybe go to sleep 'cause it's like 3:14 AM.

Anyways, Happy Birthday again! :D

Hope you had a good birthday. Welcome to last year of teenage. :)
And that's how you'll pretty much feel upon your 20th birthday too...awe, numbness and a weird thought bubble which goes like, "When did this happen?"

Belated Happy Birthday wishes...my fellow pisces...

you sun sign says that you are very compassionate, sensitive & kind/caring person, so my guess is that you are an emotional oriented person.......lol.... we are the most incomprehensible sun sign out of 12 signs ,which makes us really unique..like our father piscean Albert Einstein....
