Birthday times and more

Well, another year has passed, and I’m another year older. I turned the ripe old age of 36 this year. No, just kidding, I’m not 36. Although I’ve been pegged as being that or younger many times so i suppose that’s good.

This year would’ve been probably a pretty bad year for a birthday if we’re being honest. With Covid-19 running rampant everywhere, the restaurants were all closed which kinda ruins the family tradition of always going out for one of our immediate family members birthday. My sister was nice enough to call and offer to have dinner delivered through DoorDash. It was funny because she FaceTime’d me while I was doing my stream over on Twitch. So everybody got to hear our phone call. Also, my brother was kind enough to come pick me up and bring me to the store so I could get a few supplies for the weekend, as well as a little bit of drinky drink. Then we went through the drive through so i could buy him a late lunch and he was a turd and instead bought it for me. So, thanks buddy. Of course there’s the other reason that this year has been rough. Thanksgiving was already super quiet with me staying home by myself and ordering Denny’s, and chilling out with my dogs.

Thankfully along side my family, I have some great friends that helped me through.  Dennis and Stacy came through with an amazing little care package on my front steps. Probably the best balloon that I’ve seen for me ever. It’s so great. Also a package of drinky drink, and then the cherry on the top: Fresca. If you didn’t know, I love fresca. I’ve liked it since I was a kid. My grandfather introduced it to me because that’s what he often drank. Oh, and a card that said “What the duck”, with a picture of a duck. I had another friend that also went out of their way to make sure that I had a great birthday. I had my surprise “It’s my birthday and I’ll stream if I want to” stream before hers, and they both went really well. A lot of people stopped by during my stream so that was fun. The BruinDer and I played some Rocket League for a little bit and then delved into some Call Of Duty: Warzone with JdogSparky. After my stream my friend Maria streamed during her normal time, although I think i might have lost track of time a little bit and went into her normal time. She played a couple games and then went into some party games that always prove really popular. Jackbox games to be exact. Quiplash was one of them, and a robot rap battle game. I think something else was played too but the details are a buzz. Possibly my imbibination of some drinky drinks was a little bit more than I had planned. Possibly. All in all she did an amazing job of making me feel special on her stream which was more than she had to do, so thank you maria! Thanks to Mark and Ru, and Dennis and Stacy, and errbody else as well obvs.

Aside from all that great stuff, I honestly can’t wait for this year to be over. I mean, lots of good things have happened to me. But right now I don’t want to talk about those things. You ever like not want to go to bed because you don’t want your mind to wander into areas that you don’t want it to? Pretty much i’ve been relegated to sleeping with melatonin because if I don’t then I end up thinking about things until I get myself worked up and can’t sleep. The flip side of that is falling asleep fine, but then dreaming dreams that maybe you don’t really want to dream and then waking up with that punch in the gut feeling because they were just dreams and won’t come true, or they were memories turned into dreams, and ARE true. So basically, sleep’s out the door these days. I mean, I’m being a little over exaggerated probably. I do sleep, but just not a lot. Naps are a better way to get rested cause you don’t really dream long enough to wake up feeling like mike tyson punched you in the gut.

I think i’m going to try to start blogging more. But seriously this time. No, like seriously seriously lolol. Right now with the things that are going on in my life maybe trying to blog on a more often basis might help. I think that I feel like I need to post gigantic blog posts. But the reality is this. This blog isn’t necessarily for you to read, so much as it’s for me to be able to get my feelings out. To an extent anyways. There’s still posts that I make that ya’ll don’t see because I hide them or password them.

Anyways, that’s it for now. Tomorrow is Sunday Funday on the stream so I should probably get to bed since it’s 3:30am. Maybe. Perhaps.

Probably not though. I got this SNL episode to finish, and maybe another Heroes episode from my rewatch of it.
