Taking a day off for my birthday, is there something wrong with that?
Taking a day off just because it is a graduation, wedding or because it is your birthday indicates that you do not take your job seriously. I employ 10 people. If any of them have a critical family need I am the first to tell them to attend to their families. The key word there is critical. Since you are turning 21 how about demonstrating to your employer that you are a dependable employee by coming to work EVERY day.
