Here's your annual reminder of a fun Shizz fact: Streifig and I share the same birthday! It's a little thing that always warms my heart to reflect on every year. Mikhail, I love you, and THESHIZZ I love all of you too! Celebrate by telling me of a good bday memory you have from any point in your own life.
For me, it has to be my 17th birthday, because my sister (who is only about a year younger than me) threw me a surprise party and organized to have a bunch of my friends over to our house. It was a big deal for two reasons: 1) my sister and I almost *never* got along at this point in our lives, and I genuinely thought she absolutely hated me, and 2) most of these friends had never been to our neighborhood at all because it was a pretty ratty place and any one of their houses was a nicer spot for a hang. But on this day it seemed like the *perfect* place for a hang and we had an awesome time. It was one of the last times I remember truly feeling like a "kid" in any sort of carefree way.
