I can’t even begin to thank you all for taking part in Niff Day. All day, you shared with me all your selfless acts of kindness, and I could not be more honored to call you all my friends.

I have made an official decision; November 3rd will now be known as National Niff Day. All are welcome (and encouraged) to celebrate by doing a good deed or selfless act of kindness. More

Saturday was Jennifer’s 21st birthday. Since she was little, I dreamed of taking her out for her 21st birthday, and having an amazing time. I didn’t let her passing stop us from having a damn good time.

I have not updated in a while, and I am not sure if that is necessary a good or bad thing. I guess it is a good thing because that means I have been doing well, and managing my grief in a healthy way. It can be bad because that means I have been too busy to blog, and that is just not okay.
I feel like in the past when I blog after a brief hiatus, I have a list of things that have happened or points I want to share. Now, I don’t feel like I have that much to contribute. Yes, my 25th birthday was a few weeks ago, and I was sad the night before, but I don’t think it was anything too major. More than anything, I was feeling sorry for myself, and it was a build up of multiple emotions.
With that being said, I want to open the floor up to anyone who may have a topic or question they would like for me to address. I did this once before with my post on Shift in Family Dynamics, and I think that was a great success. So please, leave a comment with a topic you would like for me to explore, and I will answer them to the best of my ability.
Update: Oh! I just remembered something! A few weeks ago I went out for my friend’s 21st birthday at a local bar. I barely knew anyone there, and pretty much stayed with my group. Multiple people came up to me and asked if I was Jen’s sister, and told me they loved reading my blog. I am not sure who all these people were, I am flattered that they read my blog and enjoy it so much (so thank you).

It is very weird how simple things like the placement of chairs can make a huge difference in how you feel.
Sunday was Easter, and just like last year, I had to color the eggs by myself. Except, this year, I had a system and enjoyed coloring all 23 eggs (I should have had 24 eggs, but I needed to taste one before I colored it).

Thursday was Jennifer’s birthday, her 20th birthday, and the 2nd year we celebrated without her. I opted to go to work, and did my best to not dwell on the circumstances of the day. I got teary-eyed at some points, but I didn’t let it consume me. I even wore my pink confidence shirt to work as a little extra niff-love.

Well, my birthday has come and gone, and I am another year older.Maybe it is due to the sucky timing, and the fact that my birthday is 21 days after Jen passed away, but I just don’t get as excited for my birthday anymore. I was the first one out of my family to have a birthday after Jen’s passing, and will always have the next family related event/birthday after her angel-versary.
