How To Celebrate Every Day Like It's Your Birthday

By Alexis Sanchez on March 26, 2016

Okay, so it’s really easy to forget to take the time to have some fun when you are busy with college and work (unless it’s your birthday). Trust me, I have a hard time remembering to take a chill pill all the time (especially when I’m really stressed out).

A friend’s birthday was a couple weeks ago and the banner is still up in the apartment but then a roommate changed the banner to “Happy Un-Birthday” with the use of a sticky note. It brought on some good laughs, but then I started thinking. Why can’t we celebrate when it’s our “un-birthday”?

I’m here to say you can. You can just celebrate whenever you want to without it being weird. Here’s a start up list on how to celebrate every day like it’s your birthday.

1. Have a Party

Invite all your friends and throw the party of your dreams. Whether it’s a small group of friends or by yourself, put some streamers around your place, bring out that dusty disco ball, and have a good time! It doesn’t even have to be a big affair because it is all about you and how you like to have a good time. Maybe your party just involves playing some Uno or having a Harry Potter movie marathon. It definitely doesn’t need to be your birthday to have a good time and celebrate!

2. Eat Cake

Why do you have to wait for your birthday to come around for you to enjoy your favorite cake or pie? Go out and buy one for yourself (maybe a mini version if you can’t eat a lot of sweets) so you can feel that same giddiness you feel when you get to blow out your birthday cake candles. Why not even get yourself some sparklers for your un-birthday cake? Go all out!

3. Make your Favorite Drink/Food

Blend up your favorite milkshake or shake it up with your signature margarita! Maybe you have a family recipe for macaroni and cheese that makes you feel really happy or a store bought spinach dip that’s your go to snack! Whatever it is, you should include it to your un-birthday plans because I always food/drinks make a celebration ten times better.

4. Play your Favorite Music

Throw on your favorite animal themed onesie and put on some of your favorite tunes. Since it’s ultimately what you want, you don’t have to worry about strictly playing “party hits”. You can play your favorite songs from underground or unknown artists. You can play relaxing, soothing songs and of course, you can still play those party hits if that’s what your ultimate jam is. This has to be one of the parts I would really take advantage of because music is always something I know I can enjoy myself listening to.

Rinse, Cycle, and Repeat! Happy Un-Birthday!

I'm a school psychology graduate student looking for the occasional fun break from school work. Whether that involves giving grad school advice to the latest movie I actually saw in theaters to the music that keeps me going to all the traveling I do. I love to write so I'm so glad to be apart of the Uloop team!
