    September 15

    I hate being alone. especially on important

    days. I think I've had to make my own cake for three years now. Everyone always forgets. This year my parents went out bowling with my brother. My friends completely forgot. apparently they thought it was in November. Lies.

    Me Too

    Me too. And it's almost always been that way. I used to go to the bank on my birthday to make a withdrawal, hoping the teller would see my birthday on my ID and say something. Sometimes they would, sometimes they wouldn't.
