So...I'm 20.

Today has definitely been better than yesterday, at any rate. Got my bank stuff mostly sorted (they seem to have the wrong phone # on file for me, as I need the last four digits to verify my payment to skype and I've put in both possibilities and they don't work). I ordered my birthday gifts to myself, and thanks to Barnes and Noble being awesome got free expedited shipping. Got a free coffee since my card was full, so breakfast was a mocha and a chocolate chip scone, om nom. Got to sleep in since my math class was canceled.

So, yeah. Pretty good start to 20, even if I don't feel it at all.

While today has, so far, been a fab day....

On January 29, 1979, [Brenda] Spencer posted herself in a window in her home, and started shooting randomly at the Cleveland Elementary School, which stood just opposite. The shooting began as children were waiting outside for principal Burton Wragg to open the gate.
When asked why she went on her rampage, she replied, "I just did it for the fun of it. I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day.

...yeah. That is one factoid about my birthday I always remember. Oh. That, and The Raven was apparently first printed on this day, Romeo and Juliet was first performed and Disney's Sleeping Beauty was released. But those are all so cheery compared to that

But the song based on it fucking rocks. So there's that.

And, oddly enough, I was born on a Monday.
