Dear Friday: Birthday Thoughts


So I never have anything all that profound to say on my birthday. Shockingly, though I can pull off bouts of depression on just about every other day of the year, I never feel bad on my birthday. Birthdays tend to be my real Thanksgivings, when I look around myself at my friends and family and just feel really grateful for everything I have. Even during the years when I didn’t have much, I was incredibly grateful for it.

Also, I am happy that for the third year in the row, I can happily say that this has hands down been the best year of my life so far. I’m hoping to say the exact same thing next year, but we’ll see.

Furthermore, this is the first birthday I’ve ever had during a heatwave. Supposedly it’s going to get up to 80 degrees today. PLUS Battlestar Galactica is back tonight. Yeah, definitely the best birthday thus far.

100% Love,


P.S. — If you won’t be at my party tonight, have a cupcake for me.
