And I'm 16.

My birthday started a few hours,no days,no months back before the actual date with people who make me feel the epitome of bliss right now.

My birthday started with me dreading it. With me being terrorised of being 16, laving behind 15 which was somehow apparently more.. kiddish to my own ears.

My birthday started with me hanging out with Rob in gk1 and pointing at every fancy thing and going "Robin. It's my birthday on the 12th" with a wide grin resulting to about a zillion eye rolls from him per hour.

My birthday started with me pissing my brother off with evil grins every time a new add of some cellphone came onto the TV cause he was going to buy me one with his first salary.  :)

My birthday started with my sister telling me what my grandmom told her to gift me for my 6th birthday before dying.

My birthday started with texts from people asking me what I'd like as a present, 15 days before the day :)

My birthday started with Niel remembering exactly what I wished for my present, and him getting me a coffee table book of The Beatles.

My birthday started with Robin remembering these random wishes of mine of stuff that I'd like to own- from silver jewellery to a Cafe Hard Rock Tee shirt, and getting me exactly those.

My birthday started with Neha and Shekhar taking me out to buy MY gift without me knowing :P  [yea man, you guys are SO smart] :P

My birthday started with Remya calling me up and going "Yaar dekh maine tere liye poem likha hai, ABHI sun warna....#$@$$$@#@$!!!" and her reciting the most beautiful poem one could ever imagine to be written on them.

My birthday started with Shivangi calling me up and going "dduuuuuuddeeee I'm sorry I COULD NOT wait any longer, you HAVE to listen to it!" and reciting me a little something she wrote from her heart that I wanted to bear hug her for.

My birthday started with Atreyi calling me up at 5:50am just to "chit chat" and then my dad walking me up and me walking sleepily like a zombie to the loo :P

My birthday started with me going to school, receiving a beautiful notebook from Remya and Oh so amazingly pretty cards from Saad and Manav :)

My birthday started with my friends randomly stopping in the school corridors, suddenly clapping and singing the Birthday song for me randomly,  making me go pink. :P  I love you guys!

My birthday started with me touching my parents and all the elder's feet.

 My birthday started with my family :)

My birthday started with me smiling so hard that me cheeks hurt! My birthday started with a lump in my throat when I realized that it doesn't matter how old or how new a friend is, 2 years and 3 months-- both are enough for someone to feel so strongly for you that you can hear the sincerity of love in their voices.
I realized that I might shout at Niel, Rob and Joy for not listening to me when I talk and being such boys  but actually I love being proven wrong by them when they end up checking the list of each and every word and wish of mine.
I saw the joy of my brother to have brought me a gift with his first salary and I felt my pride.
I realized how much of a kid I always will be, and that the age won't quite matter.
My birthday started with the 12th of July 1994, and won't end till these people and these feelings exist in me.

A happy birthday to myself :)
