So, it's my birthday today... it's kind of weird, as it always is at the beginning of a school year.  I nearly always end up celebrating my birthday with people I have just met.

And it has down-pour-rained for the past two days, there are floods, mudslide, power outages, tornadoes, fires in Texas - we've had hurricanes and earthquakes - power out in Southern California... and the 10th anniversary of September 11th is this weekend too.

And I am not really sure that I want to get older.  Juan is still across the country and I feel like my life is going by without him being truly in it.  I hope that changes really soon.

And last time, this year, I was around 130 pounds.  This morning, 137.6.  I didn't run yesterday because of the torrential school/road closing rains - and the condition is the same today.  Maybe I will bake cupcakes today for my class/roommates.  If I am feeling extra generous to myself, and I actually look only slightly fat in the mirror today, perhaps I will treat myself to veggie sushi for lunch.  Otherwise I may try to subsist on caffeine today.  Maybe a glass or two of wine tonight?

Here's to 24.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! It's so cool that we're the same age, sometimes I feel like such a 'grown up' with everyone talking about school/uni :)

Have a great day love!! xx

Happy Birthday! Go for the sushi, if this isn't the day to indulge then I don't know when is.

Thank for commenting. I am trying to stop purging 'cause I know it is bad for me. Hopefully being at school and around my roommates will deter me...we'll see.

Happy Belated Birthday. I know it's a selfish reason for posting, but I also turn 24 this year. Somehow that gives me comfort. Cheers!

Happy Birthday my darling girl xx

Us old blogging dames have to stick together! You've become a true friend and an absolute inspiration in my life sweetheart.

Bake the cupcakes, and eat a few too. If anyone deserves it, it's you.

I hope you had the most wonderful day, and I wish you all the best for the coming year (and indeed forever).

All my love,
Adeline xx

We're the same age for 2 months! Joy! :D

Lol, I drink far too much herbal tea, but not much on the weekend. Odd, will have to fix that.

Yup, I am doing Japanese. It's not that hard, once you get the grammar down it's mainly a question of formality levels and sodding particles :/

I hope you have a great weekend, stay safe out of the rain, ok?
