I appreciate the little attention I receive on my birthday because I feel temporarily exalted. I sort of expect to feel older, and sometimes feel it would be befitting to be surrounded in a glowing light as if I had just "leveled up." My sister always expected to grow a few inches taller on birthdays. But alas I feel the same as yesterday, for your seventeenth birthday only states "You aren't yet a legal adult" and holds little privilege.
Though after some browsing I found that I share my birth date with Kayne West, which explains everything. Who could possibly feel significant under the shadow of that ego?
