First, the whole birthday fiasco was apparently just a "misunderstanding." But it wasn't until a few days AFTER my birthday and all the anger and depression was bubbling out of me in my parents' direction that I was told, "You never told us what you wanted for your birthday."
I think what really happened was that because I wasn't obsessing over my birthday, they thought they could slack off... and then my brother or my sister read my Facebook status and told them why I was angry.
So I made them spend $140 dollars on the complete series of I Love Lucy
. They wouldn't spend $220 on an external flash for my Nikon, so I asked for the next most expensive thing that I wanted.
It arrived yesterday and now I'm set up in the basement watching the lost pilot episode on the big screen and with surround sound... which really makes no sense since the show was made for tiny TVs- haha.
I still haven't gotten my cake, though.
My brother took me out for Indian food as my birthday gift (it was my first time and it was amazing) and my sister gave me a giftcard for Target, which I spent on a stuff pack for The Sims 3.
Christopher bought me the expansion pack that I was missing for The Sims 3 and of course, he bought tickets to see Billy Idol, which is this coming Friday.
Aside from birthday news, I heard back from my student loan lender today and apparently they want me to pay more money a month than I had initially- after I applied for Income Based Repayment (IBR), but supposedly, I sent them the wrong information... so I have to fix that this week. Ugh.
With all of that aside, I've been hired as a guest blogger for ThisDishisVeg
. I get to blog about veg news, animal rights, and other related stuff. There is no pay for now, but the site seems to be coming along nicely- and it's one of my favorite veg sites to read, so I have high hopes for it. I'm not listed on it yet, as I still have to write a bio and add a picture... but it should be good stuff! I'm excited.
That's all I have for now.
