Yeah, pretty much :]. Although it was a different story yet when I was a kid: My parents would give me a birthday present on the 24th of July ("half-year birthday gifts," we used to call them) while the rest of my relatives and friends would celebrate on the 24th with me, just like they still do today. I really appreciated that - after all, it's those childhood years when birthday presents still feel like something super special. Nowadays, if I really want anything, I can easily afford it, myself, so the magic of gifts has kind of worn off .Sierraシエラ wrote:It seems like your friends and family do a lot better at making your day feel special!
Is your husband a believing Christian, too, then? I would assume since you mentioned the two of you sharing important values. Would you feel comfortable naming one or two of those? I mean values that strongly influence the way you live your lives?
Lastly, to circle back to the topic of anime (crazy, right?): What do you think about tearjerkers in the medium? Do you seek them out, avoid them, or are you fine with whatever? Are you easily moved by emotional scenes?
