20 FREAKING YEARS
Today is my twentieth birthday. Two-zero. 20. Two decades.

No, it still isn't sinking in. Let me try again.

I'm 20 bloody years old!!!

... Nothing. By the time I actually feel 20, I'm gonna be, like, 25 or something, I can tell.

So, it's been a long time since I posted, hasn't it? There hasn't been a lot going on, really. Classes are tough. The past few days I've been sorting through my music collection. I've also been downl I certainly have not been downloading any anime or game soundtracks as well. *cough* Anyway. Here're a few facts and random thoughts I had while I was sorting:

* What do I have the most of? Well, my "Weird Al" Yankovic collection tops the charts at a whopping 13 albums and 132 tracks (that's including the 'Miscellaneous' directory, which has a few songs in it).
* In terms of sheer number, though, my set of Dance Dance Revolution soundtracks beats that, with an incredible 367 tracks in 8 albums.
* If bluerain put out a CD of some sort, I would definitely buy it. I really like his song "From the Rain".
* I could hit the play button and listen for over EIGHT DAYS STRAIGHT without hearing the same song twice.
* Chocobo Racing had some really catchy songs.
* So did Ape Escape.
* I really need to rent Parappa the Rapper 2 one of these days. Maybe next time I go home (and have access to a PS2).
* Aladdin was a really good movie. Why did Disney stop making movies like that?
* Most annoyingly tedious thing in the world: going through 50 MP3s from a game soundtrack and setting their titles and track numbers one at a time.
* I need to back up my music files, because if my MP3 player dies, 4500 MP3 files go with it.
* It is entirely possible to download more than 2 gigabytes of files in one night.
* It's a bloody good thing I don't pay for my Internet access.

My friend Ryan has recently started up a RPG campaign set in the Naruto universe, using the old Big Eyes Small Mouth system (the non-D20 version, for those of you who know your RPGs). We've had two sessions so far, and the most notable thing my character has done is stab himself in the leg with one of his katanas. (Damn critical failures.) But I've got time to be cool, so no worries.

Tonight was a lot of fun. My parents and brother kipperton came up to spend some time with me. We went over to Marshall Music, had dinner at the Olive Garden (those were some gooood breadsticks), and played pool until 9 PM. I even got presents! The first Big O season 2 DVD (eeeeee), a Dilbert collection, money (of course), and another book entitled "How to Read a Person Like a Book", which apparently is a guide to body language. *takes breath after slightly excessive sentence* I'm going over to Barnes and Noble tomorrow to get something with my new gift card, and I also may swing by CompUSA to pick up the City of Heroes pre-order box. Mmmmm, superheroes.

Finally, I note that today is also waffledog's 21st birthday. Wander over to his site. DO IIIIIT...

Feeling: happy happy

I'm sure that since you're so old, you've heard this one before, but:

Happy birth-Shay!

*snicker* Actually, that's a new one on me. Thanks!

I just clicked on my friends page and misread the big bold letters right in front of my face. For a moment, in my tired state, I thought you were 200 years old.

You're not, are you?

*considers*

*checks calendar*

... Nnnnnno. No, I'm gonna have to say not. ^_^

Happy birthday! *random confetti, etc.* Ha-ha! You so old! Not really. Just - please don't hurt me. I'll be good, I swear.

Pffff. When's your birthday? I'll come and mock you when you turn 20. ~_^

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


And you will start to feel like you're 20, about the time you turn 40, if you're anything like me. I'm still not sure what I want to be when I grow up

My first sparkly birthday marquee! Aw, you shouldn't have. Thanks!

And as much as I joke, I do honestly hope I'll stay a little bit childlike my whole life. ^_^

I wanted to make the Happy Birthday bigger, but for some reason, it looked chopped off in your journal!
From: hopetofly Date: February 20th, 2004 08:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
AHHHH HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :O
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: February 22nd, 2004 05:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! ^_^
waffledog From: waffledog Date: February 20th, 2004 08:45 pm (UTC) (Link)

Woo!

Right back at ya! Happy rest-of-the-Birthday!
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: February 22nd, 2004 05:36 pm (UTC) (Link)

Hoo!

Thank you! The last hour and a half was quite pleasant, actually. ^_^

So very young you are!
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: February 22nd, 2004 06:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, I suppose twenty years isn't that much, but so far it's all I've known. *grin*

Happy b-day!!! I'm about to turn 21. Are you a pieces to?

Sometimes I feel v adult, and sometimes I feel like a kid. I think age is relative and this whole numbers thing is just a silly way of keeping track. I mean, how do you *know* what it feels like to be 20? ???

I have been taking too many philosophy classes.

Grr, lost the comment I wrote. Lemme try that again.

Yeah, I'm a Pisces too -- right at the edge, in fact (I believe it starts on Feb 19th).

I think the trick is to know how to be mature only when you need to be. ^_^

(Am working on new fic, though v. slowly. Thought you'd want to know.)

Happy birthday!!!! :)

Thank you! ^___^

Hey, we've got the same birthday!
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: February 22nd, 2004 06:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Actually, mine's on the 20th, not the 21st. (Incidentally, happy birthday to you as well! One day late, but oh well.)
solderini From: solderini Date: February 23rd, 2004 09:01 am (UTC) (Link)
A little late, but happy birthday!
truebluespark From: truebluespark Date: February 23rd, 2004 02:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
