I wanted to keep my birthday simple, as I was having some anxiety. Every year, I experience a bit of an existential crisis on my birthday. Have I achieved enough? Am I as successful as I thought I'd be? Am I happy with my life? This year, I have so many new things to celebrate, but it was tough processing not working. The crisis has mostly passed. We went to a farmers' market, had lunch, and enjoyed a jumbo-sized strawberry on a stick. We used the other day of the weekend to attend a cooking class.
