The only successful birthday I've ever had was when I was turning 6. I remember in middle school and high school, I would get so excited because my birthday was coming around and I'd invite all my "friends" and get stuff set up for the party and all. But for six years straight, I only had one person show up or nobody show up at all to my birthday.
But that sure as heck hasn't stopped me from hoping that one day I will have a brilliant birthday party. I like my birthday, it's a day to celebrate and for me to feel appreciated- well, when people actually show up or care that is .
