My birthday was this weekend and I had a wonderful day, thanks, in no small part, to you wonderful people in fandom!

I didn't want any big ~thing~ for my birthday, so the day itself was pretty chill. My roommate and I got brunch, did some shopping (I bought a lot of makeup and some Christmas presents), went for sushi, and watched Chicago! Roommate has a very bizarre dislike of musicals, so getting her to watch it with me was quite the achievement. :)

To be honest, IRL birthdays just aren't a big deal for me. I don't have anything against them at all, but it's been a long time since they've really felt special or any different from a regular day. But fandom has a way of making things amazing. Honestly, the best part of my birthday was hearing from so many of you guys. Your emails and messages and gifts and well wishes really meant a lot, and I'm so thankful to know you all! <3

On to the thanks! )

Thanks again to every single one of you who thought of me on my birthday and reached out. I feel truly lucky to be a part of this community! Also, apologies if I left anybody out! ♥

It's my birthday! Which might be obvious to many of you, because you are all wonderful human beings who have been flooding my flist and inbox with gifts and well wishespromo. I'm off to do some shopping and whatnot, and I'll be back to make a proper birthday post later on. In the meantime, I thought I'd pimp the wonderful Love Meme over at [livejournal.com profile] lokifan's journal because it could not have come at a better time. Seeing all of the love over there has been amazing, and I've been just beyond moved by the beautiful word on my thread.



If you have some time, I really suggest dropping a comment or two in somebody's thread and making their day a little lovelier.

♥ ♥ ♥

Day 13: In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.

Last year I wrote this post about [livejournal.com profile] firethesound.

This year, there are about a million people I could make this post about, but I'm going to go with [livejournal.com profile] dicta_contrion.

Long rambling about the awesomeness that is dicta-contrion )
