Fourth of July is most often characterized as a day of BBQ, drinking and fireworks. While it's a celebration for America, I also celebrate my birthday. Yes, I get fireworks on my birthday every year.
It's not quite as glamorous as one might think, though if I had to have a holiday birthday I would take this over Christmas. So today I turn 27, much to my chagrin, and look forward to another year of firsts, exploration and growth.
