jackandjackie: ”They were both actors and I think they appreciated each other’s performances. It was unbelievable to watch them work a party… Both of them had the ability to make you feel that there was no place on earth you’d rather be than sitting there in intimate conversation with them.”
….was the article in the Daily Review, which I had read, yesterday. Birthday greetings on Facebook: it IS cheap and it IS not the most sophisticated way to say “happy birthday.” In the article was an interview with a woman of an older age. She brought something up: letters. Why don’t so many people just write birthday letter greetings? Well, it is because so many people do not have the time to memorize close friends’ and family’s birthday-no matter how close the person is- that they rely on that “blue-and-white screen” with a ribbon-ed gift at the right to remind them that a beloved friend’s or family’s birthday is today. People-shamefully including myself- just tend to ‘wall post’ “Happy Birthday!” then following that in a comment post is a “thank you for remembering” from the birthday person. But really now, have they even remembered? I don’t think so. I am guilty for being one of these people who forget or do not know a person’s birthday. I, and many others, are so guilty of seeing a birthday person OUTSIDE of Facebook and tumblr and twitter and just greeting them on the social networking sites. Example, “Happy Birthday! I saw you today and didn’t say anything! I’m so sorry!” This shows how much of a non-decent people we are.
For future references, remember people’s birthdays. If not, write the dates down in a birthday calendar (how some teachers used to record students’ birthdays) and every once in a while pull out that calendar and check if someone’s birthday is coming up. Then, write them a letter or give that person a call or greet them in person with a tiny gift in hand.
I feel like doing something outrageously nice tomorrow—or any day—well I first would have to ask my neighbors if I could pick some flowers from their yard/garden(s). Then I would give one to each of my teachers (kiss up as you can tell haha) and then to my close friends and to the Special Ed kids. Wow, that’s a lot of people
When people tell me I should run for this position or that I should seriously look into it. They know that I’m capable of running that position and I know I am too. So, wtf, why did I pass up Class VP candidacy? I’m really disappointed in myself.
