Soooo it is almost my birthday!
I keep forgetting, though -- I mean, like, I know it's September, now, and I know my birthday is coming up, vaguely, just - it hasn't hit me yet that it's tomorrow. TBH, idk that I'm ready to be 23! I mean, 22 was a pretty good year, and also my lucky number, sooo. ...I will tell you one thing, though, I've been at least partially looking forward to being 23 for a while now, if only so that Blink-182's "What's My Age Again?" will now apply to me. ...what can I say, sometimes I have pretty simple life goals.


Anyway, though, I did do something, for my birthday - [livejournal.com profile] bohemu and I continued our trend of city-hopping by going to Chicago! ...aaaand promptly fell in love.
I mean, I'd heard from everyone (EVERYONE) that I was going to LOVE Chicago, so I went in hopeful, if a little dubious. But, well, PEOPLE WERE RIGHT. I mean, look - just of the cities we've visited, NY and Philly are all right, but a little -- idk, too much NY and Philly, DC was fun, but kind of a shitshow, and Boston was delightful, but - idk, I keep trying to think of a defining moment for it, and I can't? It was my favorite, out of all these, and I def want to go back soon, just - idk, idk. :/

But Chicago? idk, it just - felt comfortable. Like, obvz I'd never been there, and I'm generally suuuuper not a city person, but, like, it felt like I knew Chicago, and could easily live there. Not forever, maybe, but at least for this point in my life - working out my career and my ~relationships~, with friends and Chicago steady at my back.

Oh, because, that's the other thing! I was with [livejournal.com profile] bohemu, obviously, but we also met up with some awesome people, including [livejournal.com profile] goldenguess, [livejournal.com profile] rhombal, and [livejournal.com profile] musictoyourlips. And everyone was uniformly amazing! [livejournal.com profile] bohemu was saying, we DEFINITELY have to go back to Chicago, soon, not only for the things we didn't get to see (including some parts of the things we did get to see! CHICAGO MUSEUMS, Y U SO LARGE), but also because there are good people here, people we loved meeting and want to hang out with again ASAP (...and, ahem, people who, if they should feel the need to visit the East Coast at any point, we would love to have!).

...also, we miss it. chicagooooo, je t'aimeeeee ♥

So, um, yeah. Chicagoooooo<3333, and also I AM ALMOST 23, GAIZ, WHAT IS GOING ONNNNNN.
...and now, if you will excuse me, I am going to partake in some coffee cake, and enjoy my last bits of year 22. ♥

Thaaaat's right, kids - 22 years ago, on this day, September 22, at 2:22 pm (...yeah, I know; there is a REASON 2 is my lucky number), I WAS BORN.
And the world has been a little more amazing ever since (modesty, what is this "modesty" you speak of?)! \o/

I actually kept forgetting it was almost my birthday, because it doesn't feel like it -- like, it doesn't even feel like September, much less almost the end of it. I actually had a dream a couple of nights ago in which I completely forgot my birthday until midnight on the 23, and then was SO distraught and upset that I actually woke up at 3 AM and had to reassure myself that I, in fact, had not actually forgotten my own date of birth.

So, this year I decided I wanted to take a trip to Boston for my birthday, so, this past weekend, that's just what [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 and I did. It was AWESOME - we partied it up at this ridiculous gay bar complete with Jagermeister shots in test tubes and suuuper-muscley male go-go dancers, ate excessive amounts of DELICIOUS food, ran around the aquarium and invented personalities for all (...well, most, anyway) of the animals, and, basically, had a gr8, GR8 time.
And, while this, certainly, doesn't cover EVERYthing awesome we did/saw, I took pictures! So...enjoy those.

For my actual birthday, I'm not doing much, though - I have to go in for my internship, buuuut I told my supervisor I have a doctor's appointment, and so am going to head home an hour early, where my mom has promised to make gyros for dinner, because....well, because I love them.
Then on Friday I'm going to head up to Philly after work, to celebrate/chill with my friend who's there, and then, on Saturday, I think my parents and my brother and I are all going out to dinner somewhere.


....okay, listed all at once like that, it sounds like a LOT. But - idk, all these plans just sort of happened. Also, I still do have to go to work, in the middle of all this!
Buuuut also, WHATEVER, I am only going to be 22 ONCE, right. So, like, why the hell NOT, right.



ANYWAY. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY MY BIRTHDAY (and yes, of course, as always, also Bilbo and Frodo Baggins', and Tom Felton's, and Adam Lazzara's, and Joan Jett's and Scott Baio's and Toni Basil's and Anne of Cleves' [apparently], and AUTUMN's, aaaaand a bunch of other people's, because this parenthetical note is WAY long already)!!!!!!!!

lulz, confused??

so yeah, SOMEONE'S 21 TODAY!! )

Anyway, so yes, today I turn 21!! Not officially until 2:22 in the afternoon (it'll be 2:22 on 9/22/09. Maybe I should play the lottery with some 9s and 2s, jeez), but still, YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY IT'S MY BIRTHDAY YAAAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!! Oh, and also, a very happy birthday to all my birthday twins, of course (because, okay, there are WAAAAAY too many to list, even with just the people that are of special interest to me)!!
splits_thesky: (cm: not cool gubler not cool)
Oh man, you guys, this week has been BUTT. I don't even know why, I just feel like it has taken forEEEEEver.
It's probably mostly because I am SO EXCITED for this weekend. See, it's my birthday this coming Tuesday, right (!!!!), and so this weekend [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 and my other BFF and I are all meeting up for BIRTHDAY SHENANIGANS.

See, tomorrow we're all going to my house (in NJ - my LJ-less friend - named Alison, just for future reference - is my neighbor there, too, so basically Lia's just coming to visit us), for a SUPER AWESOME BIRTHDAY SLUMBER PARTY. ...every time I tell someone I'm celebrating my 21st birthday by having a slumber party, they look at me like I'm crazy. WHATEVER, I AM CELEBRATING THIS MOMENTOUS STEP IN MY ADULTHOOD BY TOTALLY REGRESSING. And it will be AWESOME, I anticipate. The plan is for huuuuge ice cream sundaes and popcorn and renting really bad movies and mocking them, and thoroughly not sleeping.
Also, party hats. )

ANYWAY. So yeah, then, Saturday, all of us are going to trek up to Philly, to go see The Sounds in concert!!! omg, guys, it is (also) going to be AWESOME. Like, I only have the one album of theirs, but I LOVE it, and also, my girlcrush on Maja Ivarsson is ENORMOUS. She's so sassy!! God, you guys, I expect to LOVE it.
After that, we'll probably snag a whole bunch of blankets and pillows and such (mine, and Alison's - since she lives just down the street from me here in Philly too), and camp out on my apartment floor. I'm even excited about THAT, seriously. YAAAAY BIRTHDAY SHENANIGANS!!

UGHH, guys, I LOVE my birthday. I mean - obvz, because it's my birthday, but also because it kicks off what is, imo, the BEST TIME OF THE YEAR. Like, now we have my birthday, then Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then CHRISTMAS, then New Years, then [livejournal.com profile] boheme06's birthday, and then Alison's birthday. GOOD TIMES, ALL AROUND. \o/

Oh, and of course, very happy birthdays to all my birthday twins (including, this year, the HIMYM season premiere! ...and fall and Adam Lazzara and Billie Piper, since they aren't on that list for some reason)!!

...and thanks, LJ. :D

1. YOU GUYS, I OWN JEANS THAT FIT. I took [livejournal.com profile] exsequar's advice (THANKS, BTW), and went to Kohls. Going through the junior's section made me want to punch people in the face, as usual (because, while there were pants that fit, they were all that STUPID LOW RISE. I'm not asking for mom jeans here, guys, I would just like to walk around feeling like my ass isn't constantly hanging out!!), but then my mom was like, "well, why don't you try the regular pplz section", and I DID, and it was AWESOME, and now I have jeans that FIT PERFECTLY (okay, maybe not perfectly, they're a little long, and so I keep stepping on the ends, but STILL), and I will love them until the end of time. Or until they get really obnoxiously ripped and my mom makes me throw them away, whichever.

2. Somewhat relatedly, today I'm wearing my NEW JEANS and my plaid button-down that my family has termed my "cowboy shirt", and my Chuck Taylors, and every time I look down at myself, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of Brendon Urie. I didn't MEAN to channel him today or anything, but I guess it just HAPPENED. Whatever, m'not complaining, it makes me happy everytime I look at my outfit. :D

3. THE WEATHER TODAY WINS FOREVER. I adoooooooore fall clothes, and I got SO EXCITED when I learned it was only going to be 70-some degrees today and I could wear long sleeves.

4. For my fake-English class, we have to pick a quote every week that relates to the readings, right? And, guess what guys, mine this week is not only a Cobra Starship one, but ALSO from "It's Warmer in the Basement". AND IT TOTEZ FITS!!!! \o/

5. I was showing my friend the Panic! at the Disco primer the other day, and her reactions (WITHOUT ME PROMPTING HER, might I add) were as follows:
~re: Ryan - "Wait, that's a boy????"
~re: Spencer - "Oh, he's totally a hot lesbian."
~re: Jon - "dskfuhakdhaskduhadsj!!!!!!!!" (or, well, the verbal equivalent)
Also, at one point I said, regarding Ryan and his monotone, "He's like a tiny, gay, robot!!", and she, apparently, almost spewed her sip of water all over the room. I CONSIDER THIS A WIN!!!! :DDDDD

6. I NOW HAVE TICKETS TO SEE GYM CLASS HEROES NEXT MONTH, RIGHT ON MY CAMPUS. AND, THEY WERE ONLY $7. SDFKUHASDKUAHSDUJGDSAFJKSDHF!!!!!!!!

7. omg, you guys, it's my birthday on Saturday!! I keep forgetting, and then every time I look at a calendar I have this COMPLETE SHOCK of, "OMG I'M ALMOST 19!!!!!!" It's...weird.
