Goodmorning GAF (Dutch time, woke up a 6:00)

First of all, I was contemplating making this thread or not for this last week. But due to having a lot of great interactions with a lot of you I decided to go for it =P

I want to thank all of you for making me laugh, having conversations with and even those that ultimately made me self reflect on various aspects of myself. (Not naming names because I don't want to forget someone)

Thank you all so much.

*Deep sigh*

Finally, it's time#. I've joined the 40 club! I've heard it's the new 30 =P

So weird thinking I'll be 50 in 10 years. But hey, you're 9⁶as old as you feel. So they say haha

Dont want to get all negative with an sob story but.. It hasn't been easy for me.

Chronic pain which turned me into a bitter chagrin prick that wasn't fun to be around with, even on here.. Which I apologize for. After looking and trying out some physical therapists I found one that found out where my pain comes from and after not even 2 months it's getting better already, yay!

And after founding out lots of my psychological issues arent autisme but trauma related I could (including some very bad professional advice) find someone who finally *got it* and we've been working with the new found knowledge with baby steps and that's going relatively really well!

I had set out some goals to reach before turning 40. Well. I got some done (somewhat)

I'm 6 weeks sober (alchohol). But today I'm going to buy a small flask of Jack Daniels or Ballantines. Hey! It's my bday!

I've also lost a lot of weight and have been going to the gym again. So I'm proud (or should be) I managed those goals =)

I've been mostly living in solitary the last 3 years so it's great meeting old friends at the gym again ♡

So yeah today, going to have coffee with my mom around noon in Hollands second most famous place "De Zaansche Schans" and around 17:00 I'm going to dinner with my dad in a Greek Restaurant.
Haven't eaten out (both. Hops gets it lmao) in ages so yeah pretty awesome.

PRESENTS!

I'll make some photo's later.

Want to leave this for what it is for now. But (here we go again....) not before a picture and video of my MrBean Christmas style celebratory set up lol!


As for the picture.. 🙈

I have never made a character look that much like me, very well done.

Congrats on all the positive things, now you can tell us if life truly does begin at 40.

Happy birthday!

edit: oops it’s actually 8-9/9-8. I thought it was 8-8 and wanted to tie in the synchronicity thing.

Happy Birthday!

Couldn't finish my food man.
Stomach has shrunken a lot lol. Food was fine. Good but mediocre. (Haha! My inner critic wants to play)

Anyways, had some quality time with my mom and later my dad. Got some nice presents. Still waiting for on to receive (Post): https://www.bol.com/nl/p/the-voynich-manuscript/9200000057706868?referrer=socialshare_pdp_androidapp

Congrats my Leo brethren on turning the big 4-0! I’m also turning 40 in the next few days, on the 12th.

Keep setting them goals and kicking them down, that’s the best part of life.

Thanks! And yes, keep on keeping on my fellow Leo, the 12th... It's creeping up on you buddy!

And? And?!!!! 50 is coming!!

Happy birthday, but finding out your birthday isn’t on 2/2/22 is low key kinda devastating tbh.

My birthdays tend to be disappointing.. I notice a pattern =P
Happy birthday friend!

Happy birthday to my favorite granola eating hippy!

Happy Birthday!

Would be fun. And wishful thinking, and mathematics, and self fulfilling prophecy and above all just a coincidence! (I joke folks =P)

Happy birthday, my Leo bredren! You DO look 40 but EMBRACE IT! I just turned 48 and I LOVE all my gray hair!

It's that one single patch on my beard tho..As if I walk around all day with dried vanilla icecream on my beard. Jfc But I'm with you...

2 more hours.

Thanks to all that responded.


Kind of disappointed noone mentioned my framed OG poster art of Blade Runner and 2001 A Space Odyssey. Or my Crowley's tarot deck
