It started when I made a friend whose birthday was my half-birthday. It continued as a way to celebrate with roommates (since my birthday was during a time of year when I wasn't normally at college). It still carries a special meaning. November 22nd - my half-birthday. Sometimes I'll do something special to celebrate it. Today I just remembered. But you know, even that was fun! Just knowing that it's November 22nd made today a special day. I love birthdays. And half-birthdays. And hand towels. And Nutella ice cream. And Thanksgiving. And family!
