This particular holiday wasn't one I enjoy, and having my birthday fall on said holiday does little to improve my mood. Still, I had a good birthday and thanks goes out to my friend [livejournal.com profile] theblackcanary for the gift I saw on my user page yesterday evening. (Sure it will stay for only two weeks, but that's a thoughtful present.)

I got to have lunch/dinner with my mother and grandfather around 2:00-3:00 at a Hometown Buffet and had a good time-I ate a plate of macaroni and cheese, two pieces of pepperoni pizza and three hot dogs. My mother also procured for me three movies-two DVDs, one a VHS-as presents as well, those movies being Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Hitch. I haven't seen all of the first one and have yet to find time to watch the others. Perhaps I'll get to do so sometime this week.

Despite enjoying my birthday, my thoughts for the majority of the day did revolve around someone who I consider an enigma-or, a mystery. According to my mother, I've only seen him three times; I can vividly remember the last time, since I was in high school. I can't recall the first time, even if I can see vivid flashes of it since I was a child. As for the second time, I can remember that as if it had happened yesterday. (In actuality, it happened over 16 years ago, on December 30, 1989.) I wonder why doesn't he try and contact me, as my mother has mentioned that he once said that he would try and keep in touch and yet he never did. I could try and hunt him down but I haven't wanted to.

And, for those who were wondering about it, yeah-the father thing somewhat connects me with Evangelion protagonist Shinji.

Today, within the next 7 minutes, I will officially turn 25 years old. My mother stated yesterday that I would be a quarter-century old. I can't deny said statement, since it's true. Truthfully, turning 25 feels like turning 24, or 23, etc. (laughs lightly)

The anime event I went to yesterday was one of her few birthday presents to me; I had a good time watching the anime episodes from series I hadn't heard of. There's one I particularly liked but unfortunately can't recall the name of. I know that the main character, along with one of the other ones are said to be aliens-which surprised me-and said title has the word melancholy in it, yet that's the only part I can recall. Quite frustrating.

Later on, I'll put an update on how my birthday went, as well as my thoughts on Nightwing.

My mother has planned for the three of us-me, my mother and my grandfather-to head out to Hometown Buffet for my birthday this Sunday. I haven't been there in quite a while, and am anticipating going back.

Though, I'm a bit more eager in going to this Anime event that's taking place on Saturday at an art museum from 12:00-4:00. I know someone who would enjoy going to said event; unfortunately, due to certain circumstances, me taking this someone wouldn't be possible. I will attempt to describe the experience as best I can in my next update-as well as give my thoughts on Nightwing #121.

Today makes it official-to me, anyway. Within one month from today, I will reach an age I truly didn't see myself making, especially after what I've went through a number of years ago. That stuff being my leg, having surgery on my head, and what happened on Christmas in 2002 concerning the dog. I should feel happy about it, and probably will be as the day grows nearer, but at the moment...I'm not sure how I feel about it. It could be a case of uncertainty, or doubt. Still, I hope it will pass.

I managed to make it through May 13th with ease, and enjoyed my cousin's birthday party; she's now officially nine years old. On Mother's Day, I was successfully able to buy my mother a journal, though not just any regular journal-it was a Footprints journal, since when I was younger, I always remembered her enjoying it and having a calendar with it. (For those who don't know what I'm talking about, here is a link to see what I mean.)


I also went to my grandmother's grave with my mother and grandfather, and gave her a rose. I'll never fully get over losing her, but know she's at peace and that is something to be thankful for.

I'm going to a baseball game with one of my friends this evening, and my mother and grandfather may-or may not-be joining us. I just hope the Charlie Brown team can pull the proverbial wool over my eyes and win again.

A new month, and sadly enough, it is the month that I no longer enjoy, save for one reason alone. My cousin's ninth birthday will be this month, and she will have a party on a day I really don't look forward to at all. Even though I plan on going to the party, on the inside I will be hurting.

I should have the new quote for this month up before I log off for the evening/morning, but that, along with the good news that I bought a manga yesterday afternoon for 30% off, is the only positive note that brings April to a close. (That, plus I chose to get a Borders Rewards card prior to my departure back for home.)

Since my mother and I got pizza earlier this week, we didn't get to do so today-the day before my mother's birthday. Instead, we headed to IHOP for dinner; we were going to do so tomorrow morning, but that would put a damper on the plans she and I have.

Strangely enough, I chose against getting what I would normally have for dinner, deciding to get chocolate chip pancakes, two sausages and hash browns. I got some Coca-Cola for a drink instead of the traditional orange juice. Aside from the fact that I had been humbled on the way there, I had a good time with my mother-just being with her and talking about our day.

Tomorrow, my mother will be another year older. Even if I had to spend back-to-back months in getting her presents, I would undoubtedly do so again, and will need to do so again in eleven months. Despite any problems she and I have had, I still love her and am grateful to be her son. Her only son, but her son nonetheless.
