    Bye Bye

    I used to enjoy my birthday! When it was celebrated that is. The truth is I haven't had a birthday party since I was 13, my dad won't let me have birthday parties anymore because my grades aren't spectacular. I miss my birthday, since I hardly ever get to hang out with my friends...

    Birthdays Suck

    i hate birthdays and usually avoid them if i can. The day always feels so insignificant and pointless and it never feels good to know that you are now a year older

    I have never had significant birthday

    celebrations of any kind, due to the fact that a) as a child my parents didn't see the use in parties for a child who wouldn't remember them and b) I hate spending money. I just don't see the point, and perhaps you could say that my parents views have rubbed off on me, which is...

    Another Year Bites The Dust

    I always feel rather ambiguous about the whole birthday thing, but September 11th just keeps sneaking back every damn year. Now I'm a greedy ************, so I do love bleeding my family of their hard-earned money in the form of useless trinkets. My birthday hasn't even arrived...

    My Birthday Is My Gift To Myself

    Not Really

    I understand the appeal of birthday hoopla- the celebration of one's birth, giving thanks to the universe for making your existence possible, etc. I think birthdays for some people are an excuse to party hard or spend time alone and pamper themselves. Those are great ideas, and...

    I never really enjoy my birthday

    because I never have money to do what I really want. My birthday is in about a week and I'm honestly thinking of committing suicide. I have a feeling I will be alone on my birthday. I've been so depressed that I don't even want to celebrate my birth.

    As an assignment in high school I was asked to write my own obituary. I wrote that I died on my 21st or 22nd birthday. Obviously I didn't die but I have to believe that it has seriously hindered my ability to enjoy my birthday(s). I also don't feel like my birthday should be...

    Still Hoping For Something Great

    I never really enjoyed my birthdays except during my 7th birthday when my parents threw me a huge party with 100 guests at a banquet hall. Other than that, my birthdays were mostly held at home and as always, my mom would always get angry. She always gets angry if it's my...

    Technically, I Loathe Them

    I have no idea why people celebrate a purely physiological process like the birth of a child.A male and female Homo sapien mate, and produce a young Homo sapien. So what? Thousands of other mammals do that all the time. What's there to celebrate? Of all creatures, we, the...

    I don't like my own birthdays, cos i don't really want to be celebrated for ageing, i'd rather be celebrated for something i tried to do, if at all. I try and enjoy other peoples birthdays, and usually do a pretty nice job too, but i'm happy that the attention is focused there...

    I hope they could remember my birthday

    and whenever they ask me celebrate birthday for them it always remind me of that day when they don't even really care. And I really treasure them as my friends and I always wonder how important or significant I am to them.

    Whoop Di Doo

    I've never had a terribly exciting or fun birthday. I don't know why. They've just always been boring. And more often than not, i find myself crying on my birthday, for one reason or another. Next year is 2-0 so maybe i can make that one a better one!?!
