I have chosen to use my own calendar from this point forward. Everything is made up, so the current measure of time and language used can easily be subverted to serve my needs and desires. I may add more to these, but I find simplicity more appealing than rigidity and over-structuring.
I have dropped the traditional month and day names for words that can better focus me to be the person I want to be. Below are all the dates I choose to celebrate, religiously.
