In brief: 29th birthday went great. Fabulous time in NYC last weekend with great folks. Fabulous time tonight with great folks in KC. Looking forward to another year of life being generally awesome, even with the occasional ups and downs. Should've passed out hours ago, been sitting in the lobby of my hotel leaching internet instead. Lots of random things on the brain, trying to work through some life issues when I ought to be sleeping. Sent off an email that I've been debating sending for the better part of a month. Not sure how that's going to work out for me, but trying not to overthink it (ignore that sending the email was partly due to overthinking in the first place). Muhr.
