(Deleting stuff cause it’s getting really long.)

I know three kids at my school with my sister’s birthday and know of a couple others, but I don’t know anyone with my birthday. (April 14th)

Being close to family is awesome! That’s the main reason I wouldn’t want to go out of state. (or at least not far, out of state but in Ohio isn’t bad) (except it’s bad because ew Ohio) I would miss my aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins too much. I barely get to see them enough when we live 30 minutes away.

I don’t know why I know so many people with mine. It’s weird.

Yep. That’s exactly why even though I wouldn’t mind the mindset in other states a bit more, I’ll probably never leave Texas for any significant period of time. My entire family is here, and we’re ridiculously close. It’s just never gonna happen

I totally get that. The only place I’m thinking about for college is Colorado cause I have an aunt (my favorite on my mom’s side of the family) and her partner live there and they are totally awesome people and every time we visit and stay with them it feels like home. But there is no way I could go somewhere with no family.

Colorado sounds fun; plus, I imagine the weather is far nicer.

My original plan was to do my Ph.D. out of state (both to experience life outside of Tx and cuz it looks better on a resume), but since I’ve since dropped my Ph.D. I’ll probably live nowhere but here the rest of my life, unless a future SO gets a job out of state

Definitely nicer weather. In the summer and the winter. I’m not sure if I’ll ever live somewhere besides Michigan. It’s weird thinking about living somewhere else, but also weird about never living anywhere else.

March 11? That’s why my sister and cousin’s birthdays are! It’s sweet when people have the same birthdays. (Another cousin, sister of previously mentioned cousin, was originally due really close to my birthday, and I was hoping for another double birthday, but no luck.)

Ay, that makes it work out for everyone! Probably would have worked out the same way for us, but my dad was always too busy working to come with us. Sometimes my aunt and uncle would come with us and take my brother to what he wanted to see though. Which was pretty nice of them.

Haha yep! It is funny. I actually know a shocking amount of people who share my birthday. At one point, I was in pretty constant contact with four people who shared my birthday with knowledge of another one or two.

Yep that’s always super nice! And I love being close to family so stuff like that is an option!

Yeah, I’ve never seen E.T. and that shocks a lot of people (though honestly, now, it’s cuz it’s really funny to see how people react when you tell them you’ve never seen it)

I was pretty lucky to be the youngest of three by eight and a half years, so I got the bonus of having my siblings movies that they’d been gifted; plus being given my own movies. And honestly, we basically never went to the movies when I was a kid. Rented everything from Blockbuster. I probably checked out the Sailor Moon movies dozens upon dozens of times.

But I’d prefer a book any day, and I had pretty much the same freedom (heck, I was pickier than my mom).

I HAVE SEEN E.T.! Except I was really little and remember nothing about it, so. Hey, that’s similar to our family, my oldest brother is seven older than me, nine years older than my little sister (the youngest). I wish that happened to me, but no one ever gave us movies. D: Blockbuster though! We would spend hours there trying to agree on a movie.

My older brother was ten years and 3 days older than me. And my sister is eight and a half years older.

And that was again an advantage of being the youngest. By the time, I really was old enough to voice an opinion on movies the oldest two could generally agree on one with each other or my parents, so I’d generally get my own movie. (People don’t lie when they say being youngest has perks).

Ten years and 3 days apart? That’s pretty close. (Fun fact: My sister and my cousin were born on the same day exactly ten years apart.)

Our problem when we went to see movies was that my oldest brother was old enough to want to see different movies from the rest of us, but not old enough that my mom would let him go to a separate theater on his own. Then she started letting my other brother (2 years older than me) go with him to other movies that I wasn’t allowed to go to. That always bugged me because we were only two years apart and I always felt she let him do way more than me. And yea, being the youngest is totally the best.

Yep.  His birthday was March 11, and mine is March 14. Ha! We have something like that too! Except it’s an aunt/niece situation with a twenty year split.

Yeah, I could see that. I think the only reason it didn’t really break down that way for my family is my dad and brother would generally want the same movies, while my mom and sister would be the same.

As like all retail places, our store has a horrible playlist of current popular songs.  Aside from Christmas, and maybe two songs, it’s been the exact same playlist for nearly a year.
I want to find the people that decided this, tie them down, and make sure they listen to the music every day they work.

After working at Sonic for a month, I knew every word to Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto because I heard it at least 3-5 times per shift.

I can totally see this being annoying because my family goes to the same restaurant every Wednesday (Max and Erma’s - it’s Free Cookie Wednesday. And my sister’s favorite restaurant.) and I now know all the songs they play. Which I swear is only 15 songs.

I kinda hate when parents do that (nothing against your parents). I think you’re pretty much putting your kids at an odd position w the rest of kids their age. I haven’t seen a lot of the big movies from my childhood b/c I preferred reading.

Hah, I almost said something about how I preferred reading anyway. And they let me read whatever I wanted. (I mean, if I had came home with something like 50 Shades of Grey they would have obviously stepped in.)

I think another reason for the movie thing though was that I have three siblings so going to a movie gets expensive fast, and we aren’t the richest people. Plus my mom knew we would be entertained watching Cool Runnings for the 35th time so didn’t see the point of spending money on a new movie. I have these cousins though, and their parents don’t let them see/read/listen to almost anything popular, and my siblings and I are confident they will turn out to be socially awkward or alienated adults.
