    I Hate That Day!

     Since I don't celebrate it anymore. I mean last year I refused anything and shoved a candle in a cookie just to shut my mother up. I hate my birthday! Its never been a happy time for me.

    Why I Hate My Birthday

    To start with I have never been good enough add to that the fact that I don't remember birthday parties. I do remember having to make my own birthday dinner and my own cake. The kicker to all this lovely birthday crap was on my 17 birthday having to tell my parents I was pregnant...

    It's Childish

    I don't like celebrating my birthday with party  coz I think I'm old enough for that.  Another reason may be I don't like to much croud. But I like to spend times with someone may be good friends in that day nd I like ppl doing little things (which  may be pretty significant...

    Today Is My 21st Birthday.... Great.

    How time flies. I've always dreaded birthdays because for as long as I can remember all of  them were usually a let down or not what I expected. I have relatives call me today who wouldn't call me for anything otherwise, so it just makes things...

    It's Pointless.

    I never do anything and I never feel special. It's just another day that makes me more upset than others because it's supposed to be good; I still get my hopes up over it and it always lets me down.

    But People Kept Remembering...

    I wanted to keep my birthday secret this year. I never told people at work and I avoid telling people I met. I just don't like all the fuss about it. Besides, I have been isolating myself lately, wanting to spend quiet time with myself. I am far from my family, I deserted my...

    The Dreaded Day

    I start dreading my birthday about two weeks before it arrives, when every now and then you hear someone mention it, or ask "so what do you want for your birthday?" I try to spend my birthdays as alone as possible. Most of my friends and family have come to accept this...

    I Just Want a God Damned Hug For My Birthday.

    I hate the sing song "Your birthday is soooooooooon~~~~" Yes, I know. I KNOW. I rarely have good birthdays, so I don't look forward to them. I'll be 20 next month. Great. Fantastic. Another year closer to wrinkles and SSI.

    It's Disappointing

    I used to like celebrating it, when I was younger. Now I really don't. I tried throwing parties and everybody promissed me they'll come, but hardly anyone shows up. Last year even my best friend forgot about my birthday... and said I was over-reacting when I got mad at her...

    Birthday Blah's

    When I was younger I always wanted to have a big party with all my friends.They always ended up kinda lame. For my 16th birthday my mom had a surprise party for me. I found out beforehand, but didn't let on that i knew. I was so excited! To my surprise she had only invited 3 of...

    Pointless

    Birthday's are seriously pointless. Other than being able to legally do things, there really is no point. Why don't we celebrate the day our dad got our moms pregnant? That was obviously a much more exciting day.

    Pretty Much... Yeah

    Growing up my birthday was never a red-letter day for me... sometimes there would be presents- sometimes we'd be too broke .... every effing year my dad would take me and mom to the golden corral to eat... not because i liked it- but because that was the only restaurant that we...

    Nor Do I

    I see no reason for others to make a fuss.  I didn't do anything special--my Mom is the one who deserves the honor on my birthday.  After all, nurturing your potential child through pregnancy and then giving birth is very hard work.  I say we should all honor our...

    Birthdays Are Just Endless Fun. Not.

    I guess, birthdays aren't a big deal for me. I'm only fourteen. And I know everyone would be like, "Go and be a teen and be happy and shizz." And for my last birthday, I went with my two bestfriends and my bestfriend's boyfriend, and the only reason I did that was so that people...

    I Will Ensure That My Birthday Is Not Celebrated - At Almost Any Cost!

    The very thought of my birthday causes me great anxiety. I go to extreme lengths to hide it from people. I do not have my birth date on Facebook, but every now and then a family member posts a happy birthday message on Facebook on my birthday, which I promptly delete. The last 3...

    It was a week before my fourteenth birthday (September), I hated celebrating it so I told my classmate (Who can't keep a secret for her life) that I have a 'secret' , my real birthday is in three month... MARCH. so naturally, she told everyone my birthday was in march. Then I was...

    So my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks

    and it's probably the most miserable day ever. My parents try to make it special for me and they're wonderful but it's hard when you have no friends around you. My parents try to do their best but I feel that there needs to be a balance. I'm not asking for like 60 people to wish...

    Celebrating My Birthday Is Totally Against My Goal Of Staying Low-key In Life.

    This is how I understand birthday celebration:Pros: 1. You get to hang out with friends (But this is what we do every regular day, not just birthday, which makes birthday not special at all.Cons: 1. It bothers my friends and wastes their time. (They have to come to see you even...

    Just Another Reason For My Life To Be Less Acceptable...

    and normal. Because when you hear of a 26 year old who is single, has no friends, no social life and still living at home, it is somehow that bit worse then hearing of a 25 year old in the same situation. I cried on my 25th birthday as I felt so old and left behind compared to my...

    Every Day Is Cause To Celebrate

    You might think that a bit too cliche to swallow, I don't blame you if you do. I believe every day we are alive is worthy of a celebration minus the cake. I would be huge if I had cake every day :)

    There's Nothing To Celebrate

    I remember my 10th birthday party my parents had hired the local swimming pool for an hour. I invited every kid in my class over 30 of them and only 8 turned up. The reason the others didn't come because it rained. It rained! Like they weren't going to get wet at the swimming...

    Why should I bother with my birthday?

    Most of my friends don't remember it, my parents hardly notice it, and I just don't feel special at all. I'd probably get 18 cents for my age this year, or maybe a cupcake with a candle in it if I'm lucky. Sometimes I feel as though my birth was worthless and hardly have any...

    What's the Difference...

    I'll be 20, but there will be no celebration, cards, or calls. They always forget. Come February 11, my first day as no longer a teenager, it will cease to matter to everyone. What's to celebrate when I can't celebrate with people I care for?

    I was made to have family come over for my 14th birthday, even though I told my mum I didn't want a cake or party or anything. My 15th year I didn't do much, and this year for my sweet 16 I told my mum I couldn't care less if I had a Sweet 16 B-Day party. It's true. My birth isn...
