Mom’s Birthday.

So I’m buying my mothers 50th birthday gift tomorrow. I asked her what she wanted and I think she was trying to be like…reasonable about the price because I’m paying for my own rent and food and she knows I’m not working at the moment. Except it’s her 50th birthday. I finally have my own money that I can use to purchase gifts for my family members. My parents have always supported me and made me feel loved (except during those awkward preteen years where I thought no one understood me or cared about me…you know that phase).

My mom is a hard person to shop for. I know she hates jewelry around her neck or wrists. She told me I could get her a scarf…and I know she likes her scarves but that’s such a simple gift. I want to do more than that. She also said she wants a cool ring or something. I don’t know. She was all like, “I didn’t really think about it.”

Why does my mother have to be exactly like me when people ask her what she wants for her birthday?

I’m always like, “I don’t know…books?”

Anyway I don’t know what I’m going to get her. I should just sleep on it I guess. I’ll probably buy her a scarf or two but that just doesn’t seem like its enough. It’s not even the price. I really think I should give her something that she truly wants. Maybe she really wants a scarf but based on the tone of her voice on the phone it sounded more like she was like, “I don’t want you to spend so much money on me.”

Mom, I don’t care! I mean…no offence but we all know that your other children aren’t going to give you a present and if they do it’s because Dad was all like, “What are you getting your mother?” or your granddaughter was all like, “I’m going to give Mumzie a pink and purple princess crown!”

Yah…I’ll sleep on it. Hopefully I can think of something. Better get back to bed. It’s 5 am….

I can’t believe that in only two months, my blog has reached up to fifty followers. That’s just…wow. I feel like I should buy a cake or something. I know that I post a lot of quotes and things, but that’s because I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. Okay, I guess that I should go into a little more depth about that…basically I over edit and analyse things that I write. I’ll probably do that with this, but I’m just going to pretend this is more of a journal entry, so it doesn’t have to be formal, and follow a specific structure. Well, I’ve been meaning to post a few short stories and poems on here that I’ve written. I write these like everyday, so I figure I might as well publish a couple on my blog. I’m going to probably post an actual…snippet of something later today. I don’t know if I am going to edit it or not…it was really just a writing exercise so, I don’t think it matters. I’d love to give you guys a taste of like…the first draft. You know, where mistakes are supposed to happen, and things are a little messy. I just like seeing things progress from just an idea to…a finished product. So I think I’ll try that later today. Anyways thank you so much for following my blog. I know I rambled on there a little bit, but I’m just trying not to be too formal. Again thanks for following me. I really appreciate it, and for those who I am following, I love reading your blogs they are awesome and so inspiring. Thanks!
