I never update, and it's kind of weirding me out because normally I'm not like that. I usually never shut up in RL, trust me on that.
Anyway, my birthday was Tuesday. Thank you to the lovely wonderful amazing fantastic friends who wished me a happy day! It wasn't quite the best birthday ever, but it was nice.
I am now 20 years old. 3 friends and I went to Canada to Ontario for the day. Right before we left I found out one of my best friend's dad had died the previous night, so on our way home we stopped in to see her. I felt horrible, mostly because of how upset she was but also because for one brief second I thought, "why did this have to happen on my birthday?" I know it's completely human to think such a thing, but I really try to be an unselfish person and be there for the people I love. For some reason, I couldn't shut up about myself. I really feel like a terrible friend now.
Then I had a party at my house, to which 2 more friends showed up. Then I got a call from my sister. I'm not sure if anyone remembers this, but my sister was diagnosed with a stress related disorder. She had been doing well until she got a dog last week. The dog is sick and they're not sure if the can make him better. Naturally my sister Katy is a nervous wreck, which would be bad enough. However, she is making herself sick again and continuously calls the house crying. It's really terrifying because there is nothing I can do to help her.
Yeah, so basically my week has been kind of depressing. I cried at work when everyone gave me a birthday card because I was so touched that they all made the effort. I really love them, they're such good people. That was the highlight of my week, which is kind of weird because it should have been the birthday itself. Ah well...

Again, thank you all for the sweet wishes! You are all genuinely wonderful people! <3
