Yesterday was my birthday. I have a final in an hour. I can’t figure out why the hell I naturally woke up at 6 in the morning but its nice. I’m in no means a morning person but today I am. It’s kinda nice actually.
I had a great 24th. My boss bought me some Star Wars cupcakes which brought on an onslaught of happy birthdays from co-workers. I shared what was left of them at Safehouse afterward which also brought another onslaught of happy birthdays. It was strange, I used to mind that kind of attention but It was especially nice coming from strangers and friends alike. I got so many Happy Birthday wishes, my phone was ringing off the hook. I felt unbelievably loved. Jack even called me, (he got some friendster reminder email about it) I never expected him to be so thoughtful, Jack is a good man.
In the evening I went out for dinner with my brother, folks, and grandparents. It was all a great time, the whole day was a nice laid back celebration. It was a little strange seeing my grandfather in his condition at first, he’s going through
chemo and looked weak. But then I heard about all the work he has been doing with helping build my aunt’s house. He still remains to be the strongest man I know. Him and my father both are great examples of men to look up to.
Seeing everybody and all the birthday wishes were fantastic gifts. Then I got some gifts on top of it. Chris got me a Dali print, Autumn gave me an awesome robe, my parents and grandparents hooked me up with cards filled with cash. And I brought my camera and got myself a few great pictures.
