all kinds of unpredictablity

The past few days has run the gamut of all possibible emotions and situations... well not quite, but a lot has gone on. I'll start with right now, and work backwards as far as i can.

Today, i am 28. Nothing new here cause i've been saying i'm 28 for a while. But i am 28, my 5th seventh of my life is beginning. I feel it too, i'm not young anymore, and people that are under 24 or 25 seem noticably young.

Helped move a friend yesterday into an apartment that broke up for sad reasons. Half the stuff had to be sluffed off into the corner as the person had yet to come pick it up, and may not... moving someones personal effects when you don't if they know you're doing it is weird.

Christmas night out at the local bars is a lot of fun. Waiting in line to get into a bar on christmas night is fun. Staying up till 4 in the morn on christmas night is fun. It was also quite warranted, and not too insane. Saw lots of folks, had some family accompanyment, and the general glow throughout the establishment with all the serenity and issues of all the people was nice and heartwarming.

My grandmother passed away on christmas eve. She had been fighting and gradually getting worse all week. She was 92. At first the timing seemed tragic but the more we realized, the more we thought and hoped that perhaps she knew the timing, and did it for everyone's well being. She didn't want us to worry during christmas dinner. She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed, but i believe it was her time and that she is happier now.

So now? Its my bday and i'm going to do whatever the hell i feel like doing. Some of which involves buying stuff and eating and drinking. Ok, thats basically all i'm going to do... mabye a little yoga first to limber up to the challenge.


  1. Happy Birthday!

    Seems like it's birthday week this week.....everybody is getting older and wiser.

    Hope 28 treats you well!

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed Christmas. I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother.

    Happy Birthday! Have you had fun celebrating??

    Don't worry about getting older; things get easier with time. This will be an important year, though - 28 is a pivotal birthday.

    All my best.
