Wow everyone, you've all articulated so well how I feel! I've never been drunk before, only tipsy--maybe I should try that this year in the comfort of my own house :p I agree! about the Facebook thing. I have just under 500 "friends" but it's been slowly dwindling with people deleting me and stuff, which I just try to look at as well, most of them are people I wouldn't have gotten to know better anyway (which has actually been true for the most part). Though I won't deny it makes me feel crap every time I find that out, questioning whether I offended them or not.
Yeah, yesterday I met up with that friend who has big parties and she was like, isn't your birthday soon? And I'm like "....yeah...." and she was like you should do something, good way to get everyone together, people will actually make an effort to turn up cos it's your bday and not just some meetup (I was thinking....you have no idea....) Then I gave all these excuses like it's 22, nothing special.....it's this weekend, pretty short notice to be giving to people....anyway I'm not fussed, we can have it later in the month, you know how I've been pretty lazy the last few months in general (I finished being qualified for a profession I discovered wasn't for me this time last month, and it was pretty gruelling, so this excuse is actually true). Hmmm. I don't know if I want to though--actually I don't know if I can handle it
I'll sit on it. And I guess it's good in a way it's a 22nd not a 21st so it's not like it's some major occasion. That's the other thing I hate--having my birthday on a weekend where there's no excuse to say well, it's during the week and people can't come. It's fallen on either a Fri or weekend the last 3 years.
