Sorry for the absence everyone! I don't feel right tagging everyone given that I've been gone for roughly a month but for everyone that I did miss, I hope that you all had wonderful birthdays. Either being able to take the day to relax or spend that day with friends and family.
And thank you for continuing to wish everyone a happy birthday ExistentialThought! It brought a smile to my face seeing that you were still in here holding down the fort.
Before I start getting all mushy I first want to wish a happy birthday to the person I share Sept 25 with, happy birthday Kuroyume! I hope that it's a truly wonderful day for you!
I'll try to refrain from typing up a whole essay here but no promises! I might also repeat myself a little but hey, that's just what I do.
Over two years later and it's still so heartwarming every time. I joined Meta as BlindRhythm, a random nobody who was simply taking another wild chance to find a place to fit in after years of.. well, hiding I guess. There have been times over the past two and half years where a tiny bit of doubt creeps into my mind if I do fit here but so many of you are quick to remind me, through posts or random acts of kindness, that yes I do belong. That there is a spot for this goofball.
I do regret that I've been largely absent this year. I've missed so much. I won't go into the why, some of it I've talked about before, but what I will do is promise to be around more often after I'm finally settled in after my move in November.
And you're on Valdien! That was such a fun and eye opening time! I've been curious how many other screenshots we share in common. I suspect the results will surprise both of us.
ExistentialThought I'm always happy to! I know birthdays don't mean the same thing to everyone but still, I enjoy being able to remind folks that they do matter and that everyone should have at least one special day for themselves.
Damn adult responsibilities! Someone needs to teach them a lesson!
But seriously, you're not late in the slightest! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes.
So far it's been a lazy day for me.. and one in which I spent way too much on a birthday meal for myself. Got to try swordfish for the first time at least. Also have a German chocolate cake to dig into eventually.
