Journal Entry: Fri May 22, 2015, 6:11 AM
My birthday is one week from today. Apparently, the notion that I'm still getting older every year is never going to stop being weird to me for the rest of my life. But especially this year, it feels strange to me.
See, last year I turned thirty and entered a new decade of my life. Was it a bad year? Not entirely, no. But I did get cancer. I spent more than half of the last year going to doctors, getting poked with needles, getting CAT scans, getting two surgeries, (and getting misgendered often enough all the while because too many people can't wrap their minds around a woman with testicular cancer). All this followed by a total of four months of lying around just waiting to feel better and not really being able to work on my writing that I'm so passionate about. Some good things DID happen this year, but overall, I think it's been one of the hardest and most stressful of my life.
I'm trying to keep positive, although I think it's obvious that I'm in a bit of a funk right now. I was wondering if maybe you could cheer me up. I'm not gonna ask people to buy me stuff or anything because I think that's tacky (I mean, I won't tell you no, but I won't ask). But if you can spare the time, I know fanart, fanfics, and fan-anything tends to do wonders for making me feel better, and would make a great birthday present. Doesn't even have to be about Rain, if you want. Kaminari, Magical, Shangri-La, Lavender, Something Dark, or anything you've seen by me that strikes your fancy is totally fine. If you can, that's wonderful. If not, don't sweat it. I'm just throwing the idea out there.
Thanks Rain Beaus. Love you all, and take care. <3
