Today I turn 33 years old. The year I turned 32 was incredibly difficult between the COVID-19 pandemic and the many loved ones we lost, but despite some challenges it has already brought, 2021 has been immensely better and I hope it continues to be a year of rebuilding and remembering the things that bring us joy in life.
As always, I am ecstatic to share my birthday with Andre 3000 of OutKast, one half of the duo that makes up the greatest musical group of all time. I just learned today Gladys Knight claims this day as her birthday too. Other notable folks with their birthdays today include Paul Bettany AKA The Vision, horror movie scream queen Linnea Quigley, and that YouTube guy the kids love, Stevin John/Blippi. Quite an assortment.
Thank you everyone for the warm birthday wishes I've already received and will doubtlessly get more of. I love and appreciate you all! Let's make the most of this birthday and the (hopefully) many more coming!
