Birthday

Well, today is my birthday (turns out 8/10 is my birthday every year.)
No one called me at midnight, my g/f didn’t wish me a happy when I got back from the dog park, none of my friends at work have said anything.
It’s petty to be upset, but the only thing I want each year is to be remembered and acknowledged.
I am not where I wanted to be in life – I’m 28, I work in a job that doesn’t impact the world, I’m not a millionaire (I was supposed to be at 19 – NINE years ago).

I’m pretty down in the dumps today.
if it’s any consolation, it is a beautiful day today – all my family is alive and healthy and I am as well. And I have a dog.

Also, don’t spammers know its your birthday? I just want a day off from everything, work, the dog, the whole of life.

So, to review – happy for what I have, disappointed in myself for not having more.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday!!! Took me awhile to find your comment place.

    So why do you make it so hard to find your comments?

    I love your Flickr letters, btw. You are very cool, smart, and all those other fab words to think of doing that. :)

  2. I’m using K2 as my theme right now – acutally a REALLY old beta. That is how it is designed – the comments are supposed to be noticeable, but I agree they are tough!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!

    I had fun writting spell with flickr – and it was my first brush with web “fame”, I liked it!
