I know I've made a bit of hoopla over my impending birthday, but I wanna make something clear.
I don't really expect anyone to give me anything, nor do I want them to feel forced into doing this. I really don't mean to be playing any psychological games, or being passive-aggressive. I honestly HATE making people think that they HAVE to gift me something. I don't want that at all. If you gift me anything at all, I want it to be because you WANT to do something for me. It's really not a big deal if you don't draw/commission/gift me anything. I'm totally fine with a shout on my page just telling me "Happy birthday", because, at the very least, you stopped by to acknowledge what day it is.
So yeah, no one has to do anything special for me if they don't want to, and a simple message on my page is fine enough for me
