    I HATE IT. And by it I mean today.

    The day I always dread. In almost every bday I have it involves me crying at the end of the day. WHY? Mom always telling me to change when I am already starting to. When I don't pretend or act like a happy normal teen on her birthday she'll get all bossy and scarey on me. And...

    My birthday is December 26.

    It's always awful, always lonely, always sad. This is the third year in a row I was lied to. For three years straight, my so-say friends said they would take me out for my birthday because I have no transportation. The last two years, my friends went out without me instead and...

    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...

    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 kinda dislike my birthday!

    And it is coming soon. :-) Why? Because I am uncomfortable having the spotlights on me. I am never an attention seeker but I want to feel important and special everyday, not just on the single day when I was born. Sadly, that is the way it is; we only remember people during...

    I Lost Him On That Day

    My birthday now 3 years ago, I lost my grandfather whom I was very close with. Not only that 4 days later that same year I lost my other grandfather. My birthdays nowadays are pretty hard for me, I miss them both dearly an wish I could have said goodbye.

    The Replacement
