Today's my birthday. I've got not close family nearby and all my 'friends' assumingly forgot it was my birthday, even though I told them a few days ago, because they all left town to party at someone else's birthday party and didn't invite me.
Feeling pretty shitty sitting here alone.
Anything goes thread? Idc what you guys put here, I'll just be dumping randoms to keep my mind busy.
Sadly I've turned 24. Normally I don't care, but I've had a really rough year and all the guys kept telling me they'd take me out and give me a good time to peek me up. Then they forget about me. That just felt kinda shitty.
Why do you care so much? I sometimes forget about my birthday, I had a similar thing happen to me with my friends too i just got rid of them because they were a waste of time after similar stuff kept happening and got new ones that I talk from time to time but i dont really care
Yeah, I posted to snapchat saying I was taking an early morning walk to get ready for my bday. Half the guys saw it. I messaged two of them and they never answered. Finally I got one of them to tell me what was up. I just deleted the snap after that because it was kinda sad knowing what was going on.
I used to feel the same when it was my birthday
somehow I'd expect for people to give a shit
then I realized I never gave a shit about them
so it's kinda weird hoping someone gives you what you never gave
it's like when you see instagram stories of people you know having a good time and you think that they could've called you
but you can call people too
happy bday anon
This is what I'm trying to do, but I'm down on my luck right now and just kinda need people I'm comfortable with until I can get back on my feet and make new, better friends.
I really thought I didn't care, my reaction is surprising myself.
I care about them. I'm always hitting them up on their B-Day and just getting them little gifts. Trying to see if the group would put something together for them. Just last month it was one of their birthdays and they all went to the strip club on my recommendation.
I've been realizing this more and more. But when I talk about moving away they tell me I better not bail on them and always visit them. But I know I will try and they will never try to visit me. They've done it before to one of my still best friends and says the same thing. To move on and fuck those guys.
Life long friends.
Nothing. I told them all it was my B-Day two weeks after it passed because someone brought up that they thought my B-Day was soon. They all acted like they were sorry, but they didn't do anything about it obviously. I didn't care then, and I thought I didn't care now. But I guess it just feels like they aren't really my friends when they do shit like this. And since I've grown up with these guys, it makes it harder.
Thanks for breaking your lurk streak to wish me happy Birthday. I honestly do appreciate that. I rarely post myself either, I pretty much lurk.
Hopefully very soon I will.
Yeah, I'm definitely under 30. Not a teeny though, I'm right in the middle. Still, I'm surprised I'm feeling shirty. I'm looking forward to actual adulthood and not the weird stage inbetween. Where like I'm okay with being alone, but then I still want close people to talk to about my life and thoughts.
I need a good gf, but I've got to get on my feet before I can get one again.
Here's an invite, OP.
Sorry it's a little late.
Happy birthday, man. I turned into a really socially anxious guy and hate birthday parties with a lot of people.
Now I kinda accepted it and just stay at home, drinking alone. Maybe that's something for you. Just grab some drinks, watch a movie or play some games, that's what I do on my birthdays.
I think that's what I will start doing. But for now I'm trying to stay sober for a while until things pick back up. I have a hard time doing drugs and having them not become habitual.
Y-you're just jealous.
The party was awesome!
Hope you can make it this year.
I forget my own birthdays since a few years, but at least I have Facebook reminding people when it was, but it is also 2 days off so yeah :D
I call it a part of life, some of you might call me a looser.
It's just that these days you need a lot of social coverage, or seem like an important person. Then they care.
Right now I'm messing around on an old New Vegas save trying to clear up some quests I never finished and clear some if the locations I haven't been to yet. I was also thinking about hopping on some Super Meat Boy and beating dark world levels I haven't beaten yet so I can get bandage world.
Right now I'm doing this dump and practicing some coding since I'm self teaching, and then switching to New Vegas.
I mean, who wouldn't want to chill with hyper-paranoid Krishna devoteés, worshipping a white American for literally the first time ever. They even have leftover cake.
I almost forgot it last year. This year I didn't realize it until about two weeks ago. I'm sure come very soon I won't remember or care either. It's honestly not a big deal. Just wanted to spend some time with people was all. I've been on my own a while now and struggling, so it's refreshing to sit and vent with friends. I wish I had some real ones.
Yeah, I believe that I'm better here too, honestly.
That's the plan! Got a new job recently that's an hour away from home, but I'm back to clear out my apartment before I leave. I'm not sure if I'll ever really want to come back. It's going to hopefully be an entirely new and improved chapter in my life.
Note the funny stain on the forehead
Norther America, Illinois. Was going to college a few years back but dropped out to try and take care of me and my gf. She of course cheated on me with some guy who's now rotting her away with his alcoholism. After that I started bouncing between factories, but it's hard to stay motives when I'm more of a thinker than a laborer. I lost two factory jobs and my last one I hurt my knee really badly at a concert, some guy fell on my knee and ripped it out of joint, and I need surgery. They had to do minor surgery to patch it a little and figure out what was majorly wrong. I was out of work for three months, unpaid, since I was only there for 5 1/2 months (9 days short of being paid while off). Over the three months I spent all my savings still paying for bills, rent, and food. When I went to return to work, they immediately gave a rigorous physical focused around my knee. I couldn't complete it so they let me go as a liability. After that, I still had 1,200$ in medical bills and no income. My rent was due soon as well, and one of my automated bills overdrew my checking so now I'm indebted to the bank as well with overdraw fees. I had to beg my landlord to let me stay until I could get another job, and he said he'd allow it but he expected every month I continued stay to be eventually paid (he was a good friend if my beloved grandfather). I had no choice but to take him up. I'm now in debt to him 1,400 and I only just a few days ago found work an hour from where I've been living. I'm bouncing between a friends house and homeless shelter until I can afford an apartment which within with I'll be trying to pay off my debt for years to come. Unless I catch a break.
While I was in college I was studying English and education as majors since I want to teach English. I also was self teaching some coding language and German. I stopped those hobbies for a while until recently. Now I'm steadily self teaching some coding languages and German.
They are practically worshipping him, aren't they?
There's a tradition of marking the foreheads of "godly" non-Hindus, usually on photos, as a way of honoring their contributions to global Hindutva.
However, when you're honoring a paranoid, xenophobic Christian with what looks like a "target" on their head, hilarity ensues.
So they wiped the mark off Trump's face for pictures that they wanted Trump to see. And then put the mark back on afterward.
I've studied the Hindu and bit so I knew it was a symbol of 'godliness'. But that's pretty funny when you do look at it like that. Fuck Donald Trump.
Fuck 'em all. Even if it feels shit, at least you know their worth already. Happy birthday, Anon!
My 21st birthday set the tone for no one caring or celebrating my birthday with me. I'm now 27 and nothing is any different, except now I don't give a fuck at all. The best and ONLY present that you should get on your birthday is getting too fucked up and using the "it's my birthday" excuse while getting checked on bad behavior and having people treat you *slightly* not as shitty as they eject you from wherever you're fucking up.
The more this is brought up the more I like the sound of it, haha. I'm sure after this year I will have literally no expectations, regardless of what anyone of those guys say to me. If I'm even still talking to them.
Like I said, u don't honestly care. I think it was just because they literally said to me only a week ago that they were gonna throw me a little party and shit. Then they bail on me and go to someone else's Birthday party. No invite or anything. That's just some shit.
Like I said, I* honestly don't care.
I've always told myself they were pretty fake. Only there for me when I had something to offer back. But this little push was the last shove. Friends for life or not, don't fucking say you're going to do something, get my hopes up, then hang me out to dry with nothing. They know I needed a little break. It's not their job to cheer me up, but then again it kinda is. Just wish I had at least one friend who was spontaneously thoughtful. It'd feel good.
For your birthday, I'll give you a little advice -- quit being a turd that nobody wants to party with because he gets all butthurt about shit like his birthday.
I did that last year. I told someone I was 24 and took me two days to realize I was only 23.
That's my number 3 goal when I move to this new city for good. I can't fucking wait honestly. I used to be introverted as fuck, but I'm starting to be more extroverted and actually want some real friends who love me for me and not my assets. I honestly feel like half the reason those guys still hung out with me was because I had my own place (none of them do and they're all my age or older) and I'd smoke some pot on the weekends and smoke them out since that's like all they fucking ever want to do is get high and talk about nothing important except for how high they are.
Thanks for the bumps man.
Happy birthday anon-kun. Don't worry, we are here for you :3
Hope your next year is better than your last. Don't waste your time on people who don't treat you the way you deserve. IME it is better to even be alone than to waste time trying to gain an approval you will never have. At least you can be productive alone.
Thank you. I honestly love being alone. I'm very comfortable in my skin and spent most of my childhood alone. Not out of bitterness, but I just enjoyed thinking about the world and life and what it was like to be alive. Now I like being alone so I can read, study c++, work on my stories and my world that I've been trying to build for tears.
I appreciate the advice! Sometimes I doubt what I've done has led me a good life, but at times I feel it's led me a very fulfilling life for I expect so little from the world. Hearing people tell me I'm better off alone makes me feel better about it all. Like I'm not really missing out.
I've only got a few more random stuff left before it would become all wallpapers. So I think I'll finish off those, dump a few more walls, then try to scrimp some change for a McDonald's burger so I can eat today.
Thanks for the company and the words guys. I appreciate everyone took some time out to give me some company. Feels a little pathetic on my end, but I needed what I needed. I can't be thankful enough for that.
Thank you very much! Glad to know people nearly a thousand miles from me are more there for me than people who've I've lived next to for 24 years.
you're really considerate, thanks op
Oh man his face and tone change is priceless
This thread has lifted my spirits. It really is a refreshing thing to just know some people out there actually do care when you feel like no one does. On here it's more empathy than anything, but it's still people who know what it's like. Who know that just believing someone out there really does wish the best for them is all they need to get them through a hard time. When after years of internal strength falters, and you just need that moment of reassurance when the clarity fizzles.
I'm also a bit of a sap, if you haven't figured it out. Just a happy person who wants to believe the world is happy too. I'm usually doing the helping, so I guess I only knew how to come here for support after my friends.
Probably aspie. But still a legit video haha.
Thank you very much!
That gif and the one where the dude charges the mound and everyone starts hopping on one foot are my two favorite baseball gifs. I don't have the latter saved though.
I'll take the help, I'm running out of material!
Happy Birthday brother. Always better to be a Mayflower than an April shower. The rains have already come and gone, and but to bloom is all we have left to do.
forgot to say happy birthday, only you can rely on yourself
Haha you could do this with the scene from Ace Ventura when Jim Carey squeezes out if the rhino's ass too.
Only my grandmother does for me. My mother isn't all there and my father was never there.
I feel when you're very young and very old that birthdays are probably one of the better things to have happen for you.
Thanks for the words man.
If they wouldn't, I'd do it myself.
Thanks man. You're damn right. >>734045622
Thanks man. Appreciate you stopping by.
Fucking magic cards at the end got me. Thanks man.
Also I actually laughed out loud to that pic, too funny.
We share a birthday, anon! I felt like shit today in a fashion similar to you for refusing anything special, but in the end i'm happier to get by without the awkwardness. Happy Birthday, Boyo!
The fact that this was posted to /x/ fucking killed me.
Really man, tell me about it. Those guys have been around all my life and they're still faker than Trump's toupee
I'm not sure how that would help. I hope you understand why I'm skeptical of doing that on 4Chan.
Cheers for having the best birth day! Just kidding. Glad you found happiness through it, I'm doing the same too. Thanks for the wishes and for stopping by man. If you really are 19, don't let my posts worry you. It's a big world out there and I got felt farmers hand, so I'm just trying to make the best of my one ace. Just keep doing you, don't let anyone, or the lack of anyone, bring you down. There's nothing more zen than knowing yourself at heart. But it's a rough and lonely road to get to that point.
Happy Birthday Anon! I'm sorry its been shitty for you. Have a hug :)
Sitting here alone too my friend. Lurking to keep the mental anguish and cringe thoughts away.
Don't worry, I'm already getting over it my brotha.
Oh man, this brings me back. I've been having an Oblivion itch lately that I wish I could scratch. I played the hell out of that game.
Thanks man, but it's all good. I'm not dead, and the only thing from here is up. I just needed a thread like this. You guys have been amazing.
If I hear "Oh you're such a great guy" one more time I'm going to fucking kill myself.
Think I'm done being nice, anon. Gonna fucking start treating everybody like they don't even exist and watch the social life just THRIVE. Fucking people.
Being nice is how you live the doormat life, budd'. As sad as it is, people will walk over you if you're kind to them. It's weirdly ironic how being nice is equivalent showing weakness. But above all? Rather sad.
Classic. Thanks man, I appreciate it. This thread has been great, better than I ever expected. All thanks to you guys.
Stick around, nothing but good vibes here. I have to leave to try and eat soon, but hopefully things will start looking up for you. Don't dwell on yourself and just let the thoughts ride. Eventually you'll settle into a comfortable mindstate, but never if you fight yourself the whole way there.
It'd be something. Idk about permanently living like that, but a week or two of living isolated like that and living off the land, with maybe like one or two friends or a gf/wife, would be absolutely refreshing.
Thanks for the wishes friend!
Thanks anons, its been kinda shit on my end as well but im finally making some big steps toward the rest of my life, even with all the anxiety thinking about it brings. All you can do is hope you find peace with your worries by the time you meet them in person.
I need to write this off:
>Crush left the country
>Two best mates said fuck it and left the country for a 1 yr road-trip
>Other friends got into dope
>Few remaining completely ignore me, don't answer texts, etc.
>Best mate quit hobby, don't have anybody to go skateboard with anymore
>BD been forgotten by everybody, even parents
>Alcohol addict since 15 (24 now)
>shitass parttime job to sustain myself, every month last week is a struggle
I was actually a "cool" kid back in highschool, now I'm a piece of shit and I know it. It's been years that I've realised this but I just can't get my life back on track. I never understood people who wanted to commit suicide but oh boy, since I'm 22 I perfectly understand these people. Even waking up these days is a struggle.
People look at you like you're weak. But how hard do you think it is for aggressively opinionated people to spout off when provoked? Probably about as hard as it is to breathe. Now think about every time you could have run your mouth or cut someone deep, but you held your tongue because you knew it wouldn't solve anything. That shit is not easy. Don't let these flamboyant socialites which feed off their own egos make you feel weak. You are so much stronger than they'll ever be because you didn't live a life accepting people's lies to your face, but sat and criticized yourself to be a better person using brutal honesty. That takes guts. It doesn't ever make you better than those people. Just stronger. You see clearer. Things make more sense to you, and you know yourself better. Those people are afraid to be alone. I'm not afraid to be, and I'm sure you're not. It's just hard sometimes. And those people just flat out can't do it. You have a blessing and a curse to think as you do. And only your morals and beliefs are going to be what get you through this crazy life. You might as well make those morals things that put smiles on others. Because in the end, knowing that you can make people happy in a life filled with struggle, brings more happiness than any form of self love. Because bring there for others is the ultimate form of self love. Don't give up.
Thank you so much. Really. This thread has been great. I need to eat though. I wish I could stay but by the time I'll be back to internet, this will probably be maxed or 404d.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by or stuck around, regardless of what you said. It was nice to have the company when I needed it. This place is fucking crazy, but people are always there when others really need it. That's a special something.
Goodnight everyone. Here's to a good year. For all of us.
>one time shame on them
>two times shame on me
>three fucking kill them
Happy Birthday homie! Things will get better I hope for you. It can be depressing but maybe address it to them. I'll have a beer in your honor tonight, have a good night and if you need to talk I'm here.
I found some scraps in my fridge. But all these anons convinced me to do a little solo drinking, so I think that's what's gonna happen. Eating then getting a tallboy of the strongest shit I can find for 2.25.
Thanks again to everyone. Have a great night, day, month year. Don't let anyone stop you. Especially not yourself!
"They buried me in the sand and forgot me."
Holy fuck even the lyrics thanks for making my day anon
I haven't celebrated birthdays since I was 16 because of money issues and not having friends and it's pretty much stayed the same. I don't have anyone I'd invite that would be worth getting drunk with or even chill with. I make bad choices with who I make friends with and either get stabbed in the back or it becomes obvious that they don't want me to be their friend
