Today is the absolutely best day in the world.

December 29, 2009

Can you guess why?

Today I thanked my mother for birthing me fifteen years ago today.

I truly had a lovely day overall. My aunt, cousin and grampa visited from [a city about an hour and ten/fifteen minutes drive away which shall remain nameless] and we went shopping a little in the mall.

My family bought me a peacoat (navy blue- American Eagle although I am generally opposed to their use of sweatshops) which is a medium because it is a little more form-fitting than what I’m used to (but it still fits) and makes me a little more confident. It makes me feel a little more “feminine” even though I already consider myself a girly-girl.

Have you ever walked by a group of girls with their hair and makeup all done up nicely every day and just walking by them makes you feel instantly like you and these people are just so different? As if maybe, you might never be on speaking terms, let alone friends. You probably won’t be invited to their sweet sixteen and you probably won’t invite them to yours. You might guess that they’re a nice person or that surely they’re alright… but it’s unlikely you will be friends. It sometimes gives you a strange, melancholy feeling inside, but then you think about how your friends are just as great-scratch thatBETTER and you feel it’ll be alright.

Well, this jacket, this magical jacket, made me feel like this feeling was slowly fading into the background. I can be friends with whoever the heck I want and it gave me confidence, which is far better than a peacoat on its own.

Yeah, a lot more happened to me today, I suppose, but my family is watching District Nine and I already missed most of the beggining.

Having a great birthday,

Alexandra Violet

PS My aunt bought me and my brother The Lightning Thief to read. Already I read the first page and I can tell it’s going to be a good one, a real page-turner.

    I don’t know why but my blog said it was similar to your blog. Happy belated birthday. I think this is awesome! I too have a transcendent coat that I love. It’s chartreuse and I feel like I can conquer the world in it. You, your family, your friends and The Lightning Thief are all awesome, I’m sure! As a mom I love that you thanked your mom for birthing you. MANY years from now you will cry when you hold your own child and realize just how much it meant to her.
