I’m so excited for the new Star Wars movie! I know the rest of the world is too, but I’m even more excited because my birthday is the next day!
Having a birthday close to Christmas can majorly suck. I’ve always had to deal with birthday presents wrapped in holiday paper, or being told “pick which one you want to open as your birthday present”, or getting two crappy presents so that my cousins didn’t feel jealous (which they wouldn’t have) about getting only one present. I remember one year I got some pajamas and nail polish while all my cousins got RC cars. I totally wanted an RC car!
But one advantage to having a birthday near Christmas is that EPIC movies get released. The Lord of the Rings movies all came out on or around my birthday and now I get to celebrate Star Wars!
So here’s the plan for next weekend:
Thursday December 17th
Afternoon – Go with Mom to pick up my wedding dress!
Evening – Go to the Air and Space museum for their Star Wars celebration
11pm – Go to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Friday December 18th
7am – Go to work, completely exhausted but it’s the last day of school before break, so it won’t be too strenuous
Afternoon – Come home and take a nap
Evening – See Star Wars again?
Saturday December 19th – My Birthday!
Morning – Sleep
Afternoon – Spend several hours deciding which Star Wars themed outfit to wear and then freak out that I’ve done zero prep work
Evening – Star Wars Themed Birthday Party! Eat until I feel like Jabba the Hutt, remember the wedding dress, and cry.
All in all, it’s going to be a glorious weekend!
