    Okay so my birthday is coming up in August,

    and unlike everyone else who is super excited about there birthday, I cringe at the thought of having a birthday party. I don't really have any friends and when you have a birthday party you're suppose to invite over lots of your friends and have fun, but the thought of having a...

    because it seems that every single year,

    the people I want to spend it with, always have something else they'd rather do.

    Am I The Only One ?

    Am I the only one that frets over my birthday ? It feels like I'm getting older and older and that life is getting shorter and shorter ._.

    I hate my bday because of the reason I was born.

    I wasn't some new exciting addition to a family but intended to be hurt instead. My parents are total whack jobs that make me seem sane. I can't help it. I just hate that day so much.

    This might sound like a sob story by the end

    but I don't mean it to. I don't want peoples pity. I'll ignore anyone that is unnecessarily horrible. My entire life has been about everyone else. My birthdays have been marked in small sense but generally forgotten about. By that I mean "close" people have bought me gifts but...

    I hate my Birthday. I don't care

    for it to be honest. All I really ever want to do is get black out drunk and just pretend that I'm not getting older. I mean I'm nearly 20 Now. Just can't be done with it anymore.

    Even more so when I was younger,

    my birthday was just an excuse for mom to buy me something to wear that I hated, then I would have to tell her l loved it and that she was so kind and thoughtful and then she would use it as an excuse to buy me more and make me wear them too. Christmas was the same. Never liked...

    I Hate My Birthday

    I enjoy celebrating other people's birthdays, I just don't like celebrating mine. I hate the attention and buy myself whatever I want or need. I usually make my own cake too. I also hate having a birthday in January right after the holidays (which I hate too). One year I moved my...

    Time Passes By So Fast

    I hate this time of year when my birthday comes. I don't have any spectacular plans. I won't be going out. More than likely, I will be reflecting on goals that I haven't accomplished and compare myself to others. I feel that birthdays are just a reminder that one's time on this...

    My birthday is coming up soon.

    I'm more sad about it than usual because instead of just "feeling" like I'm getting "old"- I actually am. Getting old. I haven't known what to do with my life for the past 28 years. I'm terrified I won't ever know, no matter how old I get.

    Today is my 18th birthday.

    One year ago on my 17th birthday, my grandpa died of pneumonia. After I got the news that he died, I had to spend the rest of the day at someone else's birthday party, surrounded by a bunch of old people who only reminded me of my dead grandpa. It was torture. And my birthday...

    Sixteen years ago today,

    at approximately 5:36 p.m., another human being was born. Nothing special about this human being, this date, or this time, but at this very moment, it was like the world revolved around him. And that's the only time it will, until he dies. No one ever made such a big deal about...

    I don't hate it that much.

    The problem is a lot of people forget when it is because it is in the beginning of the year. (not telling the date) A lot of times I seem to have bad luck on my birthday for some reason.
