VIRGIN-YA.



Ma, I'm not in New York anymore!


I decided to celebrate my birthday for an entire week--from yesterday to next Wednesday, which is March 23rd and is my actual birth date. I figured I might as well do it up since I'll never turn 23 on the 23rd ever ever again!

My celebrations include:

I've been feeling really anxious and down lately--grrrr grrrr---so I want to celebrate my life and all I have because we really have so much to be grateful for. I'm still breathing so I have so much to be grateful for.
     

    Last night I traveled to Richmond, Virginia via the Chinatown bus--6 hours y'all!!--to spend some time with Melissa and Ebony, who is Melissa's boyfriend's dog.


    I love Melissa--we're friends for life! You know when you're good friends with someone when you forget to talk for a long time and when you finally do, it still feels like yesterday. Way back when, we went to high school together in Brooklyn and then she went to college in Virginia. Melissa finished taking classes last year, but decided to stay in Virginia for an additional year. She plans to move back to New York this summer!

    It feels good. I know I have lots of stuff to deal with when I get back home, but sometimes it's okay to escape for a little. We have to make our happiness happen!

    And spring is coming!
