But...this year, I want to break from my old goofy traditional birthday journals, because...this year was...different.
As my watchers, friends and family know, my 23rd Birthday is all but less than an hour away by the time of writing this journal...but this year, I want it to be a little different in a traditional sense~
As you know as well, I am part German and grew up in a European household, and an old tradition we have had during each and everyone's birthdays is not only does the birthday boy/girl get presents, but everyone else who gave a present or wished them the best as well!
So, I have a proposition:
To the first eight
of my watchers to comment on this journal, who not only have a North American 3DS and a copy of Pokemon X/Y, but a Facebook account and a Skype account (Skype being optional, but I don't use webcam or microphone, it's just mostly for text stuff), you will each be given something quite special in return!
But to all who comment regardless? Thank you all, for all of your compassion, friendliness, and overall care over all the years...whether in times of joy or sadness, light or darkness, hope and hopelessness, you all never gave up on me, no matter what dangers we all came across and overcame.
For this birthday, this year, is not just for me, but for all of you to share in~Here is to a quiet past, a happy present, and a wonderful future yet to come!
