No way! I spent my last birthday getting into a barfight and downing a bunch of shots and dude, it is overrated as FUCK. Don’t feel bad!!
I can’t help it. I want to go out and do things but I…
Exciting lives are overrated. I mean, okay, I think the problem with the notion of “boring” birthdays, for me personally, is that I am old as fuck so I overcompensate by getting ridiculously trashed and doing a lot of stupid shit. But really, having a calm, seemingly uneventful birthday is probably the better option LBR.
This probably didn’t make you feel better though. Fuck it, next year I’ll drive out and take you out for your birthday! I can crash with my aunt or cousins, shit. As long as you don’t wanna eat at the Hard Rock Cafe. Or, if you do, I’m not buying you any glassware, sorry. (I took one of my friends there for HER birthday and several cups and mugs later it was a $150+ bill and I’m not really about that life; this girl owes me her soul now.)
My life even is boring. It’s just existent. I don’t do anything. It literally is wake up, work, home, maybe work out, eat, shower, sleep, repeat. I make plans and something always seems to happen that prevents them. So when I get the opportunity to do something different, I get excited because, hey, Laura isn’t a pathetic single preschool teacher shut in! Oh no, wait, yes she is and now she spends her birthday money shopping and getting a massage like she’s in her late 40’s because she’s pathetic and single.
Hey now, don’t knock messages, I just paid for one and it felt better than meeting Kopitar would feel, okay. (Actually, don’t knock clothing shopping either because I’m about to do that tomorrow welp.)
Routines aren’t actually boring, they’re pretty useful, BUT they can *feel* boring. I feel ya on the monotony front and I can’t really counter that because my life is pretty hermit-y and boring as well.
Plus meeting people as an adult IS more challenging, I don’t care what people like to say. With the exception of two people, ALL of my friends are from elementary/high school or college, where you pretty much have built-in friends lbr. I don’t even know how adults meet people to date honestly.
I use OKC solely to find people to watch hockey games with, lol. I’ve met some dudes off of there for other reasons and just…no. And let’s face it…I work at Ulta and Macy’s, I’m not meeting a ton of dudes my age THERE, so work is also out.
