Turning 24 Years Old on Sunday
My birthday is this Sunday (July 26) — I’ll be turning 24.
It’s going to be the best birthday I’ve ever had.
It’s not because I’m going to have a big party — because I’m not. And it’s not because I’ll be getting some shiny new toy — because I’m not.
It’s because I have something to celebrate.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve celebrated 23 wonderful birthdays. I’ve always had wonderful family and friends and have absolutely nothing to lament about. I use birthdays though, just like New Years, to reflect back on the last year and look at what I’ve accomplished — and what I’ve yet to accomplish.
That list has always started and stopped with me losing 100+ pounds.
Even more reason to celebrate, the Monday after my birthday is the first day of my week long vacation. I don’t plan on taking anytime off of the blog though, because I have absolutely no life. Just kidding. Sort of.
But really, I’ll still be around.
A few people have e-mailed me wanting to know how to get me something for my birthday. I’ve setup an Amazon Wish List in response. I don’t know why, I don’t deserve (or need) anything — but hey, it’s convenient because I like getting occasional things that I don’t need and can’t afford. I don’t expect anything from any of you, but if you’d like to learn a little more about me and check out the kind of stuff I’m into — take a look at the Wish List on Amazon.
It’s full of stuff I want, nothing I need.
If you do buy something for me make sure you fill out a “gift note” when you checkout. I want to be able to thank you properly, both on the blog (with permission) and off, so leave your name, web address, e-mail, etc.
Speaking of nothing I need, you’ll notice a Macbook on the wish list (it is a wish list, after all). The current computer I use for blogging and everyday use is on its last leg. The Macbook is appealing because it comes pre-installed with robust video editing and web cam software. As soon as I gather the necessary funds, I’ll purchase one and start making (occasional) video blog posts.
Hopefully, I’ll get an early birthday present tomorrow: 230s!
