when the yuppie turns emo

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

in 730 days it will be my 30th birthday.

if you do the math on the above that makes today my 28th birthday. happy birthday to me... and lindsay lohan.

i'm going to be celebrating this evening with doing approximately three loads of laundry. and if i'm feeling extra spicy i might go walk to public square for the downtown cleveland firework show.

the fireworks after all are all for me. every single one.

especially the ones that are supposed to look like hearts but end up looking more like an oddly shaped oval.

that is
my special oval, think of me next time you see it.

i had so many happy ideas of what i wanted to do for my fabulous 28th birthday post but i'm feeling slightly melancholy at the moment so my wittiness is fleeting.

although i may only be doing approximately three loads of laundry tonight on my birthday. my real birthday party will be going on tomorrow when myself and 12 of my girlfriends head out to "a restaurant" (no stalkers) in tremont where we will drink lots of wine, do lots of shots and participate in tons of shenanigans - but that party is tomorrow.


and for now i just need some time to reflect on these last 28 years, and to see where i'm at with it all so far...


-i have the best family in the world (but i still miss my dad)
-i have more friends than i girl could ask for, i'm beyond blessed (but i want a
boyfriend)
-i'm beautiful and healthy (but i want to be 3 sizes smaller)

-i have "an addicting good personality" (but damn i can be an evil bitch)

are you sensing a trend?


now i doubt i'm the only person in the world who thinks these things about themselves sometimes but it's hard ALWAYS staying positive and smiley. who doesn't want more?


i think i need to read
the secret again.

this funky mood will pass by tomorrow night when i'm with all my friends and my sissy so i'm not worried. maybe i'm just crabby today because i can't eat any birthday cake. haha!

ugh, this post is so emo and very unlike me. GROSS.


i need to listen to some vampire weekend right now, they always make me happy.

so what did you get me for my pretend e-birthday present? ; )

**************

so i wrote the above post late last night to schedule post this morning. and in case any of you all care i'm in a waaaaaaaay better mood.

but i felt that the above post was worth keeping cause those are still real feelings. thankfully i still LOVE my birthday, i was nervous for a hot sec. i can't wait for dinner tomorrow!

so far my roommate nate gave me a bottle of yummy wine, the georgia peach decorated our apartment hallway with a happy birthday alexa sign, AND my office got me flowers instead of the cookie cake because of the whole vegan thing.

all of the above? awesome : )

  28. Happy Birthday honey - please be careful while walking so you don't bite it again. And so what if you and Lilo share a birthday, you didn't get busted with coke and end up in rehab. Maybe?

  31. OK. I know I'm late, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope it's been a lovely one and that tomorrow night is wonderful.

    Because now that you mentioned that the fireworks are all for you, I'm going to think about it. And every firework I see this weekend is going to remind me of you. ... Is that weird?
