Today, August 21, 2006 marks a certain date in my life. Five years ago on this day, I was in a serious accident-a car hit me while I was walking down the street toward home-which resulted in me receiving a compound fracture in my left leg, and a blood clot in my skull, which required surgery in order to get rid of that blood clot. Hence why I have two scars on both sides of my head to this day.

My mother brought up the subject when the three of us-me, my cousin and my mother-went to a fast-food restaurant-Taco Bell-and a sign was on the wall that stated "We will never forget September 11, 2001." To which my mother replied, "August 21, 2001." A lot of things have happened to me since that date-most good, most bad. But, I believe I have grown since that experience occurred and changed for the better. Sure, I'm still somewhat of an optimist, but I try to keep a firm grip on reality as best I can. (Meaning that in a way, I'm partially a realist.) I'm still working on it, but it will take just one step at a time. Perhaps looking after my cousin will help me with that firm grip on reality. The quote comes from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The week in itself was...decent and good, with some bad thrown from every angle. (During my next update, I plan to talk about my thoughts of Nightwing #120 and my displeasure at the price raising up.) Tomorrow, around 8:00 AM or so, my mother and I are off to Anaheim to celebrate my cousin's birthday. A huge part of me hopes that I will be woken up around 6:00 or 6:30, though. I had been asleep when my grandmother passed on two years ago, at 6:45 AM.

This weekend will be joyous for a number of reasons-the fact that I will celebrate my cousin's 9th birthday, and that I will spend the majority of Sunday with my mother. (The reason I'm going to say this now is because I doubt I'll be putting up an update on Sunday-though, if things change, I just might.)

To all mothers around the world, I wish you a happy, joyous and safe Mother's Day.

The weekend, so far, has been mixed with good and bad. I went to a festival with my mother back in my hometown, and brought one of my friends along; we had a pretty good time, and while there I bought myself a bird-shaped necklace. I'm not entirely sure what kind of bird it's supposed to be, but as I have my favorite types of birds, I have options as well. Hopefully, I'll be able to show a picture of it in a future update.

That was the good. The bad, however, was when I went to visit my grandfather. (That part is never bad, by the way.) I went inside my old house that has been inhabited by several people since I moved and was stunned at the state of it. The last family that lived inside it completely destroyed it! Sure, the main living room had been painted but other than that, the place looks entirely uninhabitable now. As for my old room...whoever used it literally put hand prints on one of the four walls, and put graffiti on two other walls!

Next Saturday, I will definitely have mixed emotions. Despite the fact that my mother and I are going out of town to see my baby cousin, who is having a birthday party a few days before her birthday, that day marks the fact that it's been two years-officially-that my grandmother died.
