Tomorrow I'm 20.

Lethal Injection's Photo Lethal Injection 29 Jan 2005

Salaam all. It just seems like yesterday I was that kid running around carefree acting his age, poking people, annoying the neighbors, and squirting fluids via water guns on his fellow Muslim chums. Oh wait; that was yesterday. :D Just kidding. Anyway, I'm happy and sad. No, I'm mostly sad. Mostly sad because life isn't a game anymore, but a little happy because I'm one day closer to the date of my demise. Happy memories of things past that will remain just that, memories. And the jump from 19 to 20 feels like a leap compared to an 18 to 19 hop. Just not being a teen anymore sheds off lots of protective skin and replaces it with a heavy coat of bearing and responsibility. It's time for the caterpillar to spread its wings and fly. Salaam.

you should actually cry on you birthday....because you should remember that one more year of your life is gone and you are one more year closer to dead and therefore you should fear Allah swt and praise his and pray to him that he keeps you on the straight path.

may Allah swt give you a lonbg life and may he keep you steadfast on imaan. :D

Salaam on you sisters. Both ways are fine: crying and rejoicing. In my case, I'll be rejoicing, since I'm enthralled that I'm one day closer to the event of my eternal sleep and the things lying in wait, and I'll be crying, since I'm afraid I won't have harvested enough deeds when the hour comes. Some people would weep about this, others would be delighted, and a handful would do both. Salaam.

Hey! Just cause you're turning 20 doesnt' mean you have to act like a 20 year old! :D or does it? :D

:D

everybody else pretty much covered all the advice, what with rejoicing and crying, so all i'll say is May Allah continue to bless you every year!

Salaam all. Thanks for all the nice replies :D . It's 12:12 AM here, so I should be commemorating it when I sleep and wake up. I'll probably cut a cake with the family and then go out and play laser tag with my friends and cousins. We'll then go play some networked CS. Yeah, I won't let my age stop me from entertaining myself :D . Salaam all.
