My upcoming birthday

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

I just read your comic last night, and got up to the latest pages today. You are a wonderful artist and storyteller. I loved watching Rain and her friends and family face hardships and overcome them in whatever ways possible. Normally I'm not into romance, but you managed to capture the good and bad of love triangles and odd relationships without making them come off as forced or melodramatic. I see a lot of myself in Rain: her shyness, her love for anime and manga, her wanting to be loved by her friends and family, etc. I'm not trans, but I am autistic, and the comic also taught me a lot of things about the gender binary that I didn't know about. I heard about your medical situation recently, and I do hope you get better soon, because you deserve all the love, hugs, and support in the world! Rain FTW! I myself have been dealing with a lot of self-doubt and self-hate, mostly in my writing abilities, because I also want to write about serious issues such as disabilities, bullying, etc. But annoying social justice warriors (the bad kind) on Tumblr have been bullying and humiliating me, and it's left me in a crisis. Reading Rain helped me out a little bit, and I'm trying to get back to enjoying writing again. I do hope you have a good day, and keep on writing Rain! Rain exists because you choose to tell her story and it's touched many hearts out there, mine included. You're a great person and I can't wait to see what you'll do next.

Hi Jocelyn, I have a question about the choker Rain always wears, is there anything significant behind it? Thank you for your time.☺
