    It's My 19th Birthday! Yay......?

    Well, I don't feel a single damn thing even if it's my birthday today. Honestly, it wasn't even on my mind until my friend brought it up a couple days back. Since a few years ago, I used to be rather...mellow, well, close to sad whenever it was my birthday. I don't know why...

    Lonely...

    For others, when they have a birthday, I'm all happy and giggly! I'm so rah-rah about the whole day for them! It's great! And I feel like celebrating with them, all night long! And I do, if they are relatives, as they live close-by! ;-) But for myself... I always feel...

    Lonely On My Birthday

    I wouldn't say I'm really sad on my birthday. Just lonely. It's in the middle of summer, right after July 4, just as everybody's coming back from vacation and hanging out at parties getting drunk off their a*ses. Sometimes I feel the only reason people know it's my birthday is...

    Bday Is A Sad Day For Me

    Bday..hurm..I always felt that my family celebrate my bday out of norm or annually event that they have to do it. Usually I am the only one who plan everything when there is a celebration in our family. So, when it comes to my bday, they kind of take things for granted. I have...

    Another Year Older

    I have always felt like a failure with everything in my life and still do. I am unfulfilled with my life endeavors. To me, my birthday is only every other day, I'm just a year older.

    Me and my birthday just don't get on together well. It's not that I'm upset at turning older or anything, it's all the awkward Happy Birthdays and gifts that I don't want or need. The having to be in the center of attention when I hate it the most... If people really knew that...

    Typicaly my B-days kinda suck. Atleast when I was living on my own I didn't have to put on a plastic smile and pretend like I was actually happy about how the year went and where I stood. A typical B-day for me would be as goes: Wake up a few times and try to fall back to sleep...

    Happy Birthday To Me. :/

      I was born in late May. When I was a child, the families of all of my friends would go out of town for Memorial Day, so I'd end up being alone at any party that was held. Even those who would say they were coming would never show up. It was both heartbreaking and...
