15 now

No, it doesn't feel any different to be fifteen, I kinda wish that you gained wisdom with each birthday, but I think not. I had a lovely party on Saturday with my friends and the next day I woke up at 6:00 (for some crazy reason, I always wake up 13 minutes before the minute of my birth, seems odd when I usually wake up at 8 on schooldays). It was also Mother's Day, I got my mum some soap and a watercolour I had painted. So for my birthday I got a new shirt, some new shoes and a pair of amazing sunglasses, as well as some money that will be going toward a bicycle. It was a nice day, I walked to Kensington twice, had indian food for supper and did not do any homework. I managed to find myself a nice twenty dollar pair of black jeans. So I have to wear a belt with them and they had to be sewed significantly tighter, but I appreciated the value. After this we watched old home videos, it's crazy to see how little and chubby and bald we were 14 years ago. My parents had a lot of video when we were 6 months to a year. A lot of it is pretty cute, but I guess after a while watching two 7 month old babies cry and jump and babble for a while it is a little tiresome. The family gathering are quite odd to watch, I'm never going to see some of the people there again, and everyone has changed so much. We also watched some video from when we were 6 or 7. There's this video where I'm pretending to be some kind of reporter, babbling about something I made up. It's taken by my brother, who sounds so completely different and he provides a bit of a commentary about my lack of sanity. I was a very odd child. Anyways, being 15 does sound a little different than 14, but it doesn't feel different. I was very appreciative of all the lovely facebook, etc. comments I got from my, that's an advantage of having one of those friend-networking sites.

And, fabulously, I have my iTunes back! In celebration here is something I intended to do a while ago.

Might be a little bit late but Happy Birthday!

I hope you have a great year. 15 is a grand age.

DO NOTE listen to the Weakerthans - that is bad advice they are giving you there! Laughed my head off at the Mariner's Revenge Song though.

Thanks Evelyne!

Barbara, at first I thought you were telling me to not listen to their music! But that would be good advice. I think I could probably put my iTunes on shuffle and come up with many great porno names.

Hopefully this won't be predicting my future, it looks a little grim.

Happy (belated) birthday!
I tried the itunes shuffle questions. Apparently they're going to play Simon and Garfunkel's 'A Most Peculiar Man' at my funeral... ouch :P
