Personally, I always have a minor fear for my birthday for years, it sounds insane I know. There is nothing special for birth(day) unless the fact that I have to make tons of changes in life, for every single part of life, which means that some of the things I haven’t gotten yet MUST be on my hand and all dreams inside my bucket list must be REAL.

For me life isn’t easy when getting older and older, and probably that’s one of my personal reason that makes me hate to be stupid cause it will be harder. In the same time I should be grateful for everything that has been happened for past year, any wishes everything better for the next.

I’d like to write 24 memorable things that I should remember ;
