I love March. It's my favorite month and for more reasons than that it's the month of my birthday. I love that it's so close to spring, I love the celebration of Lent and Easter, I love the Ides of March and St. Patrick's Day (green is my favorite color). And most of all I love my Birthday. This year is super special because I'm turning 21. To most people this is a reason to celebrate because they can go out and get drunk. To me it means so much more. I was forced to grow up pretty quickly when my dad got sick so many years ago, but I'm still limited by law when it comes to being able to do certain things. I don't want to go out drinking but I'm excited for the oppurtunity to do so. Just knowing I will no longer be limited by my age is such a freeing feeling. My plans are a small party with friends, and a small dinner with family. I probably won't have alchohol at my party for a number of reasons. First and most important to me is out of respect for my best friend. Her religious beliefs do not allow for any alcoholic beverages and she is not comfortable being around it.
March also is the month we find out what the radiation did for UB's tumor. Hoping for a miracle. Ub is going to have a building named after him. There are musical's and symphony concerts to attend. It's a very busy and exciting month. I'm glad it's here and I'm going to try hard not to lose my mind during the process of running around.
