Certain things happen around my birthday. Within the week of my birthday I will get sick or injured. It happens every year. Day after my birthday I ended up with a sinus infection I am still fighting off. I also become deeply introspective and begin reflecting on my life, my goals, my deeds and evaluate where I am versus where I want to be. To the casual observer this appears to be depression when in fact it is simply a self review that can take days or even weeks to finally finish up with. Today, I am deep inside this self evaluation and wondering about loves lost, friends gained and where I am going to be at in my life when I turn 30 next December. So, please, if you notice me being a bit more quiet and reserved than usual, understand that I’m in the middle of a diagnostic and try not to take anything I say or do personally. After all, come January 1st, I will be back at offending the masses with the same fervor that I’ve always had.
