✿ A Day of May✿

   Although I can't sing "Sweet Little Sixteen" just yet, today is my birthday- and I'm fifteen. Fifteen seems so much older than fourteen. Although, that previous sentence does sound quite cliché... but yes, it does. Fourteen and thirteen I happen to bunch together in my mind as the "scary" phase, a phase in which most teenage girls (and sometimes boys) partake in where they rebel against their parents and think they're incredibly cool, when in reality they are nothing but a bunch of annoying little kids. I am finally out of that age group, for which I am thankful, and I intend to embrace this deeply.
  My birthday is on May 1st, also known as May Day. May Day isn't celebrated widely these days like it was around a hundred years ago or so, so I wouldn't be surprised if you hadn't heard of it. The day is basically celebratory towards anything flower-covered or nature-related, although it mainly focuses on flowers. In the early 20th century people would make May Day baskets full of flowers to leave on each other's doorsteps, kind of like reverse trick-or-treating. It seemed like a lovely holiday, complete with flower-smothered goodness. Loving everything having to do with flowers, this seemed like the perfect holiday for me, and ironically, it was on my birthday.
  There isn't much of a point to this post rather than that I wanted to spread May Day/Birthday cheer with everyone. Look forward to my Saturday/Sunday post- it's sure to be a good one. Other than that, have a lovely May Day everyone. :)

Since I can't make any new 8tracks playlists (they're blocked on this computer), here is the one I used from my Marianne Faithfull post. Enjoy! 



    And well, the good years are coming for you! Life got so much better when I got 15/16 so I'm hoping the same for you!

    It's a shame we don't celebrate May Day anymore, it seems like a holiday that I would actually care about!
