    My Birthdays

    Are always lonely, there's no party as I have no friends, and my manic depressive mother, well lets just say she regrets not getting an abortion. So my birthdays are usually filled with loneliness, being told to go kill myself by my mother, and those extremely long phone calls...

    It's Just a Reminder That I'm Special, But Not That Special

    My family acknowledges my birthday and tells me the usual command, "Have a Happy Birthday!" But I hardly ever do. My husband asks me months in advance what I want for my birthday, every year I tell him I want to be with him intimately as much as I want for a whole 24...

    Turning 21

    Between two groups of friends and my own family I will already be going to 3 different bars, 3 different ***** clubs, and 3 different casinos and I haven't even been asked what I want to do yet. I'm not sure why people get excited about turning 21. As far as I can tell it's...

    Not Really.

    Today is the 25th or April, my birthday is on the 30th, I've got 5 days left, and I'm not really that excited. So much has changed this year, and I'm very proud of myself for what I've accomplished. But it's just not me to celebrate my birthday, I don't know.. Could be what I've...

    Especially Not This Next One.

    I am really not looking forward to my next birthday and as a rule I tried to let it slide by without to much notice. The next one, which is in a couple of weeks, will be one of the big ones, the dreaded 50. My wife has already started planning some big embarrassing thing for me...

    I'm Turning 21

    My birthday is on 2-28. It's not really something I'm looking forward to. I don't drink and I could go out and party but it probably wouldn't be much fun for me. I don't have any girl friends or close friends in general, so I guess that'll make my birthday suck even more. But...

    My birthday is in 2 days.

    I haven't really done anything for my birthday in years. I wish I had friends to celebrate with. I wish I had a reason to be happy about another year of life. I hate being alone on my birthday.

    My birthday is in September, the beginning of the school year. Before anyone cares about birthdays yet. Plus I don't have many friends, so nobody knows it's my birthday. Ever.

    I get them too on my birthday, I think most kids here in the USA do. I guess it's OK as long as its not done in a mean way, but I think it is a weird tradition.
