    It comin up soon... I have asked my father to

    move the piano in the house so I can take piano lessons knowing that he won't actually do it. I really hate my birthday.

    Another Year and No One Cares....

     My birthday is coming up in less than a week and to say the least I'm not excited. Just another year of being unappreciated and ignored. I usually spend the couple months before my birthday looking forward to it, but about a week before I realize that it isn't going to come...

    I get really anxious on my birthdays

    because I always feel like everything I have ever been holding back comes back to slap me in the face and it seems like every year something even worse than the year before happens for example this year my 20 year old brother(who has borderline personality disorder) threatened...

    Because how I was born on Halloween,

    you could imagine how that was like growing up. It's annoying how I'll want a quiet birthday but can't have it since there's kids knocking on my door.

    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...

    When I was 8 years old,

    my mother told me I was a mistake and the product of a cheap bottle of wine. She blamed me because she had such a hard time delivering me. She also informed me that my younger sister was planned and hoped that somehow, I wouldn't have made it. My bio-father used to beat on me...

    I couldn't see my mom on my 13th bday last year.

    My birthday is next Wednesday and guess what I get to do? Nothing. My family doesn't get along so there's no point in trying to do something. I just get to sit upstairs alone on my 14th birthday crying. The only exciting thing I'll probably do is call my boyfriend. Yay....

    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...

    too much pressure to be happy, and too much to organise. I guess it goes a bit deeper than that..

    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...

    He didn't say happy birthday, said he has no plans for tonight, wants to know what's for dinner. I am so annoyed and sad. I don't have anyone in this area I can talk to. The only people that remembered my birthday is my mom, brother and one son...Feeling alone!
