So, if anyone wishes to help a guy out with the birthday celebrations, I will not object. However, this celebration is more meant for the people I know well in life, giving me some special stuff to make me feel welcome for being alive.

Why am I even talking about this?

Because I wish to spend a bit of time on my big day to encourage people to live to the best of their ability. That’s wish number 1 that I have.

What do I plan to do to encourage people?

I plan to write on Medium on the day of my birth and give you all a decent story about what it means to encourage others. Because everyone matters, in the end.

This year, on October 22nd, I plan to write something for everyone to enjoy, even making it part of a long series of things to have people read.

Now, I’m not sure what I will do on my big day, but I wish to have pizza from my old workplace on my birthday. It’s something that I look forward to, especially since the food is a mix of fast food and homemade, and it’s the best ratio of both.

I want to have my All Meat Pizza from Papa Murphy’s again, dagnabbit!

The things I wanted to do and the things I’ve done

The following lists are things I intend to expound on about what I wish I could have done and what I never expected to do. Here’s what I mean.

What I wished to do this past year that I never got to

  1. I wanted to publish a novel by the time of my 31st birthday.
  2. My desire to go back to my day job never happened (yet).

What I never thought I would do that I ended up doing

  1. I got to go on vacation to Leavenworth, Washington.
  2. I drove a ferry boat that allowed passengers to drive it.

Wishes for my birthday

I don’t plan to ask for much in the way of material possessions. To put it bluntly, I don’t plan to…
