May 2: Ari Lehman turns 50 today.

He’s the first person to portray Jason Voorhees; he was the boy in the lake at the end of the original Friday the 13th. Now he fronts a band called First Jason and continues to act in indie genre films such as ThanXgiving, Easter Sunday and The Barn.

We’re also lucky enough to call him a friend of the site, so wish him a happy birthday!

To have faith doesn’t mean you get any less frustrated when you don’t do your best, but you know that it’s not life and death. Take what you’re given, and when you continue to work hard, you will see results. That will give you the confidence you need to keep going.
