Today is my birthday and the first year in my 27 years my parents have decided not to do dinner. I don't live with them, but they always either make dinner or we go to a casual place to eat. This year, no one has answered my texts or phone calls all day. My mom owns her own catering company so I know she works the oddest hours, but I'm feeling bummed. It's almost like now that I'm on my own they don't really want to talk to me.

I did go to the gym with a friend and then she bought my lunch, which was good. First time using the 15 pound weights! I've been going to the gym every day for almost 2 weeks, so I'm still learning.

Now I'm home alone though. Roommates both work the night shift now, and I requested off today. Should I order a pizza and call it a night? Or Facebook surf for friends to do something with? I'd briefly considered seeing if Tardis-Cake boy wanted to hang out, but I don't want to seem overly forward since we went on our first date yesterday. I'm trying to tell myself today isn't sucky, because ones birthday shouldn't suck, but I'm running out of motivational quotes.

Also, does anyone know how to add gifs to posts on Kinja? I'm on an iPad by the way, and I miss giffing : (
