i had a nice time on my birthday and i hope i can continue to periodically have such nice times in the future…but, wow.  is that it? 

yeah, that’s really…it. 

ah, well,  it could be worse,  it’s not so bad.  all that.  i got a lot of flowers and i took a day off school to eat potatoes and french toast with a good friend.   it’s not all bad. 

sometimes it’s pretty good.

it’s not going to get any easier from here–it’s just going to get harder.  and it’s already been hard.  this life, with its various ups and downs has always been challenging and has always provided minimal validation. 

can i really work harder?  or should i just let it go?
