Death in the Family

2019 hasn’t been too kind so far, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Tonight I received some bad news. I was getting ready to leave work when my dad let me know that my uncle passed away tonight. He said my aunt tried to wake him up and he wouldn’t wake up. We don’t really know the cause yet, but he’s been really sick off and on for the past nine months. The doctors said it was allergies, but I was very skeptical. Allergies do not make someone that sick (that I’m aware of). He would become really pale, run a fever, be unable to keep any food/drinks down, and he lost a lot of weight. Then he would be okay again for a while, and the cycle would repeat.

It’s Always Something

It’s been three weeks since my last post. Sorry, guys. This is our busy season at work, so I’ve been working longer hours. Plus, I recently discovered that Tubi (a free streaming service) has Unsolved Mysteries, so I’ve been spending most of my free time bingeing it. I grew up watching that show and loved it. The eerie music and Robert Stack’s narration just had a way of drawing you in. Plus, the stories were always interesting. I heard Netflix is rebooting the show, which is kind of exciting. However, no way will it be the same. I hope the stories are interesting though.

2019 Has Struck Again

If you happened to catch my last post, I mentioned how I haven’t been having much luck since the year changed. Well, 2019 has struck again. Last night I fell down the stairs (again). This time it was the basement steps and I fell from almost the very top. Both sets of stairs in my house are made of wood, so I didn’t have any carpeting or anything to help soften the blow.

Weekly Photo Roundup #7

I had my 30th birthday party last Saturday. A family friend made a cake for me, which I wasn’t expecting. She is so good at cakes! She makes and decorates them herself. It was red velvet and had a whipped cream icing, which is my favorite. I don’t like the really sweet icings. However, I discovered that my body can’t handle eating stuff like that too well anymore. It seems like anything that ends in ‘cream’ (whipped cream, sour cream, ice cream, for example) does a number on my stomach. The cake was so delicious though. It was worth it. We called it the rave cake. As some of you know, if you’ve been reading, I was in the rave scene years back. Although I don’t rave anymore, it still has a special place in my heart. Plus, I still love anything neon and fluorescent.

30

Today is my birthday! I’m officially 30 now, which means I’m no longer in my 20’s. It feels a bit weird! I do think we put a bit more emphasis on age than necessary sometimes. I mean, it’s not like I really changed or aged much between yesterday when I was still in my 20’s and today. It’s still a bit of a surreal feeling though.
