I regret to inform you that I had so much fun on Saturday night celebrating my birthday that I didn’t take any pictures.
Just kidding. I have no regrets.
I was more freaked out about what to wear for my party than I was about actually turning 30. I have a long history of freak outs surrounding special events and clothing, so combing the two has a tendency to really screw with my head. I bought two dresses, a top for that wonderful tulle skirt of mine, and rented a gorgeous (but ultimately too sparkly) BCBGMAXAZRIA sheath dress.

In theory, I’m not a violent person. Most of the time, I don’t believe that war is the answer. I don’t agree with the NRA on just about anything. I have never been in a fight.
But within this passive shell, I hold a poorly kept secret: I want to punch someone in the face almost every single day.
Seriously. I say some iteration of, “I will punch them in the face” at least four times a day. I have a recurring dream that I punch someone in the face – though, in the dream, it doesn’t quite connect and then it feels like I’m floating in Jell-O. (Wow, guys. I have weird dreams.)
Should I be ashamed of my face punching fantasies? I’d never actually do it, but even as someone who takes pride in their words, nothing else I say grants me quite the same release. Not even a well-placed F-bomb.
So, today’s post serves three purposes:
I can now say I published something today, which makes me feel productive.
I took a few minutes to express myself with Photoshop, which feels pretty damn productive, too.
I combined my apparently violent nature with an old meme to create something that might remind me of my real goals every day (even when people are pissing me off).
We all need to punch today in the face. Remind ourselves that we are the owners of our problems, our solutions, and our fates. The people who piss us off aren’t the problem. The problem is when we let those people get in our way.
