Tomorrow it is my birthday! Hooray, people bring me gifts simply to celebrate the fact that 22 years ago i was born!
Tonight we went out to celebrate by eating at my favourite restaurant, Marine Ices, who do the worlds greatest tomato pasta and ice cream. I ate a hideous amount of food. Mmm food.
Today i've been taking a load of photos for upcoming posts, but the camera battery completely died before i managed to get them onto my computer. I'm hoping to get a new video up sometime this week (as well as quite a few written posts), i really enjoy making them but they somehow seem to take more effort than blog posts, even though they mean i don't have to take loads of photos of loads of products.
So next time i write i will be a whole year older! :D

Speaking of, i used to be very depressed around my birthdays because i had a Peter-Pan-like aversion to aging, wanting to be forever young and childlike. Now i am a lot better, looking forward to my new year of opportunities and so on that come with getting older. I think a big part of this has come from me having a lot of friends considerably older than myself nowadays. Not because of the obvious reason (compared to them i am young) but because i think 'wow, if i can accomplish half as much as ____ by his/her age i will be so happy' and i see how cool and fun and spontaneous and amazing people like my friends Foz and Mikey and Chris are and it just seems like age is completely irrelevant. I'm 22 and i can be friends with people who are 50 and that's wonderful and helps my self esteem by thinking that these wonderful people think i'm interesting and mature enough to be worth spending time with.

Also you get cake on your birthday *thumbs up*
