I get really depressed around my birthday. I start reflecting on the past years: what have I accomplished, more so, what have I NOT accomplished? I'm single for the first time in 10 years on my birthday - which means no birthday sex. I start comparing how others have been treated on their birthdays, what I've done for friends, what they haven't done for me, and start questioning if my friends actually like me or not—I get very in my head, and it's a dark place. Anyone else get the Birthday Blues?
This year has been one of the best birthdays I've had in a while. 1. I actually got to hang out with friends who care about me, I gave myself a spa day (nails and then hair at my favorite place, DryBar) and then I saw Book of Mormon for the first time! I'm not going to lie, I was a little tipsy for the first half, and was seeing double - that's A LOT of Mormons on one stage! LOL! I've been a huge fan of the music and the story for a while, so finally seeing it all together was amazing - but if I went and had no idea what I was getting myself into, I think I'd be very lost and shocked. Or maybe not shocked, it takes a lot to surprise me, I grew up with the internet and no parental locks.
When I use to perform at the Rocky Horror Picture show, we did a lot of tunes from Book of Mormon and made our own interpretations, so it was really cool to see it and be like "OHHH THAT'S what's happening during this song!"
p.s. I just want to do a shoutout to Drybar really quick (no this post is not sponsored by them!) I love this place, they literally compliment you the second you walk in, and the location in Harvard Square now just knows me by name. Cheers what? Drybar is where they know me. This location just makes me feel incredibly special every time.
