I knowwwwwwwww! I didn't even make it a week straight before I dropped the ball.
But, I'm going to continue...it may be in fits and starts, but I'll get to 100!

Today's happy is...*drum roll*...happy birthday to me!

I get to do that, right? Right.

I've had a pretty good birthday! I got lots of love from my friends online, a sweet card from [livejournal.com profile] dancing_adrift with lovely artwork by dephigravity (kissing boys ftw!), and had yummy cake and ice cream with my family. Pretty low-key, but that's okay!

Sometimes I wish I had a big group of friends I could go out and celebrate with, but I kind of think that's more of what's expected, what's the norm, than what I would actually enjoy. I'm pretty low-key normally, so it really would be out of character for me to go out on the town or have a big party. I guess it's just a little crappy to feel lonely on your birthday, but - ehhh.

BUT - I'm starting a new year, and that's always kind of exciting. I'm thinking about some new goals to try to achieve in the next year, ways I can work toward improving myself. Goal setting is always something that gets me hyped up, spurs my motivation. I don't always achieve them all, but that's okay. I keep working on them, revise and revisit and eventually I'll get there!

*hugggsss* Love you, chica! I like your attitude towards this 100 days thing. They don't have to be consecutive days. I like that. And I'm glad that your birthday was happy! I'm happy to have been a part, as small as it was. Love you! ❤❤❤

*squishes the bejesus outta you* No small part, darlin'! To know I'm being thought of, to be sent love (both online and in the mail!) means the world to me! Love you!

Happy belated Birthday!

And yes, I think going out and celebrating is kinda the "norm" but it's certainly not a requirement. I'm pretty introverted, so large crowds freak me out sometimes. It's YOUR day, so that should be a day you get to spend exactly how you want :) It sounds like you had a good bday, and yay for getting some lovely artwork!

Thank you! <3

It's funny how we let the norms, the "what's expected" influence us so much, huh? I try very hard to recognize that when it happens, so it doesn't drag me down. After all, I DO love who I am, even if that isn't what's considered "normal"!

And yes, big yay for artwork! I'm about to run out for a frame - more loveliness for my little wall of SPN love! Woohoo! *happy dances* :-D
