According to Wikipedia "name day is a tradition in many countries in Europe and Latin America that consists of celebrating the day of the year associated with one's given name." Even I couldn't have said this better.
So, today is my name day. Long time ago this day was celebrated like a birthday, with dinners and parties, presents and fun. But in the XXI century - not anymore. The only festive thing I have on my table is the bright-blue SAT Prep book. And a lot of vocab cards. I am slowly becoming a nerd... but as long as it helps me to get into college, I guess I am fine with it.
The other thing on my mind right now is my upcoming actual 18th birthday!! Oh, the air of freedom... I've been torn apart between a glamorous party (like last year) and something active and fun. The struggle went on for a long time, and guess who won!
It looks like we are going to have a Boys vs Girls Paintball Match! Invitations will be send out a bit later, as well as the wish list will be published.
And now I have to get back into my nerd-ish "state of mind" and keep fighting SATs. Wish me luck!
