This year actually felt slow. Maybe because I did much more stuff than the years before. I participated more, I changed my attitude, and basically I tried to become a different person. Now I look more toward the positive side of life instead of being pessimistic all the time. I also learned than I should not really care about my birthday day as much. It should not be regarded as a special day, but more like a typical day. I kind of don't see why birthday is a special day (as regarded by others); it's just the anniversary you're born on. Nothing special other than getting older. I did not really celebrate my birthday this year because, to me, it's just another day. I still feel a bit gloomy on this birthday because I am aging, and aging can be looked in a positive or negative way. Let's talk about the negative; obviously you're getting older, which means more responsibilities. One have to start caring about the future of oneself. The positive side is I'm about to have more freedom (1 more years till I become a senior!) such as parents not setting up strict restrictions. Also it means I am headed toward my future. During my 15th year of life, I've noticed I have been lazy and apathetic at some moments. I skip sport practice, delay homework until the last minute, not study for a test, no guts to ask someone out, being a stupid hermit at some point, and not caring too much about my social status. I am going to try to limit this habit during my 16th year. I have many goals that I want to achieve before my 16th year end. I am not sure of those goals yet, but I will do my best to achieve any goal I set up for myself. My life is still young, I will continue to strive for more and live life the best I can make it.
