The (not-so) Simplicity of Childhood Birthdays

I have to say, I’m genuinely¬†embarrassed¬†by the fact that it’s been months since my last blog post. It’s been a crazy summer, but in less than two weeks, I’ll forever be done with MCAT and can return to the real world.

Until then, while spending a study break remembering how much I miss perusing the New York Times, I was intrigued by this article.

Since I’ve always just been the host or the guest at birthday parties for kids, I had never really thought about just how complicated they can be. This article not only tackles the interweb of issues that they involve but also their impact and involvement (or lack) of special needs.

I wish I had time to delve into this more, but that’s it for now.

12 DAYS.
