    I Have Birthday Bad Luck

    I have come to dread my birthday.  For the most part, my birthday has been someone's afterthought; "Oh, yeah, right, it's her birthday... let's do something slapped-together and half-*** (if anything at all).  One year, my mom decided to invite my class last-minute...

    It's late and the story about the terrible

    month of my 12th birthday is so ridiculously LONG that I will summarize it up into tags. I probably didn't have the worst of the worst (mainly because I had more grace than the next person might in this situation) but "good" wasn't the best word to describe my 12th birthday...
