I've been reading Aldi's journal for several years now; in fact, I think he was my first lj friend!  We share a love of procrastination, even though we both feel guilty about that sometimes.

He is an inspiration to me: a man who makes things happen.  A man who works hard, with grit and determination.  A man who lives life on his own terms.  A man with a passion for music.  A man of infinite patience and great attention to detail. Someone who takes pleasure in the small things in life, and finds happiness and joy in the most unexpected places.

Thank you, Alain, for showing me that, with hard work, anything is possible.  For introducing me to obscure French-Canadian musicians.  For letting me know, that life doesn't always go according to plan, and that's OK; you can always start again.  For sharing your study journey with me and re-assuring me on my own journey.

I wish you many happy returns on your birthday!  May your year ahead be filled with music, laughter, good friends, good results, lucky garage sailing, and giant kangaroos.

I have been reading Seanan's journals for quite some time now, ever since her infamous "100 things" list popped up in another community that I was reading.  It literally made me laugh out loud and still cheers me up when I need a lift.

Since then, her journals have continued to entertain and bring joy into both my life and the lives of her multitude of friends.

She is an inspiration to me; a woman who lives her dreams.  A woman who isn't afraid to be exactly who she wants to be.  A woman who lives life on her own terms.  A woman who knows what is to work hard.  And play hard.  She is extremely talented and gifted and shares her gifts with others.  She is loving and caring, even towards complete strangers, and always remembers to say thank you to those that help her on her journey.  Her passion and enthusiasm know no bounds.

Thank you, Seanan, for bringing light and laughter to the world, for showing me that it is OK to be exactly who you are, and for proving that, with hard work, dreams can come true.  

I wish you many happy returns on your birthday, dear Seanan.  May your year be filled with music, laughter, good friends and zombie pumpkins.

This journal is friends only.

If you would like a sneaky-peek, then please add a comment with a 100 word essay on why I should let you take a look at my private thoughts.

All comments will be responded to one way or another.

Thank you!
