So I thought today was going to be pretty lousy.
But it wasn’t that bad.
I mean, the fact that it’s my birthday and I’m not at home…stinks, to put it very mildly. But my family is amazing, and they take care of me even when I’m not there =) <3
I had a Sociology exam this afternoon (fun birthday activity) and a meeting for my religion group project (almost worse than the exam), but you know. Whatever. It made today just like another normal day. Insanely busy. Stressful. Sort of bleh in places. But that’s good. If today’s a normal day, then I don’t miss home as much.
To my dear family, both immediate and extended: I love you guys. You are amazing. I have the best relatives. <3 Em, thanks for listening to me play music and critiquing it all =P You’re the best. Luke, you have amazing taste in earrings. Not sure if you should take that as a compliment or not…*cough* ;) Mommy and Daddy…DRIED MANGO??!!?? Ok. I don’t need cake. this is better. <3 Granny and Poppy, thanks for skyping me =D Yay! And CHOCOLATE. O_O
And to those of my friends who remembered and who sent me birthday wishes: I love you guys too. I’m so blessed to know all of you…thank you. Grace, your card was lovely (despite the fact that you wrote a notice on the back of the envelope for anyone to see instructing everyone at Hope College to sing to me. Which thankfully no one has…do you know how awkward that is??) Rebekah, thank you for encouraging me, and smiling. =) And thanks for your prayers. They mean the world. Le annon veleth nin, my dear. <3 Don’t ever go away *nods* …Ashley…WHY DID YOU NOT TAKE THE TARDIS AND GIVE ME IT?? It’s my birthday. Give it to us, precious. -_- …*cough* but you still rock even though you didn’t. *grins* ;)
To the people at Hope College who wished me a happy birthday, though none of you will ever read this: You’re pretty decent. And thank you for not singing for me. Or making a big deal of it. XD The fact that I told no one about it being my birthday today helps, but…*cough* You know. Whatever. I’ll tell you tomorrow…maybe. *grins*
So I woke up this morning to THESE hanging all over the place:
I’m just glad they didn’t stick me on a Black Rider. o_O
And then a wonderful little old lady dropped by the dorm with a box for me…containing this:
How nice is that??
I wrote a song.
Technically I wrote two songs, and one of them I actually wrote several weeks ago and the second one I got almost finished last night. I don’t like the first one super much…it needs help =P But the second one makes me really happy. AND. Emily critiqued them over skype for me =D Yayyyyyyyyy. My sister’s a genius everybody. Just throwing it out there. *nods* Thanks Em! <3 Helpful suggestionz…you rock. =)
I’m really proud of myself for that. =P
so today was pretty decent after all.
I mean. It’s just another day, right?
…*goes off to eat cake and dried mango, and write in my journal* Tschuss, everyone.
