Every year, I always try to make my birthday really special. It doesn't have to conduct a big party and invite a lot of people but instead I make my birthday celebration privately with my closest friends by inviting them to my birthday lunch or birthday dinner. It's more way special rather than conduct a big party, for me.
I remember when I was in elementary school, my teacher always taught me that "do not choose friends, make friends with everyone". At that time, I make friends with everyone in school. Then I realized my teacher only taught me with the current situation which I was still a kid, and I make friends with the kids same age with me where those kids didn't know who they really are, they're just thinking you're a good playmate, they're honest with their feelings, laughing at you, and crying if you broke his/her game.
