But, I'm trying to also change my level of interaction with people. For a long time I haven't paid any attention to birthdays or holidays because I personally don't put any importance on them. And in the past I've just kind of shrugged it off when people would be offended or hurt.
So, today is Alex's birthday; he's my boss, we've known each other for 2 years, I think it's appropriate to give him a card. So I bought him one.
Baby steps. Baby steps.
