    I don't either. I don't see the need to do so.

    Birthday decorations stopped after my 18th birthday; and I think that was only even done as it was a "significant birthday". Nowadays, it's just a few gifts from my mum and going out or whatever happens that year: I'm 20 next May.

    As you get older, well for me personally, these events just lose all their significance. I don't think you properly understand it when you're told as a teenager, but it does just naturally happen. It's the same for Christmas, Halloween etc. What matter is how you choose to spend the day- whether you go out with friends, go to the cinema or go on a holiday/day trip or whatever.

    I don't anymore - I don't really get / want gifts either. I've got a perfectly good home that I'm living and am happy. What more would one want?

    Why do you think that you are **** human? You are a lovely TSRian.
    P.S. You don't want to complete your degree anymore?

    You recognise my username?

    I dropped out officially in January. After giving up unofficially in November.

    Yes, I do. You are a well-known user, you know.

    I will understand if you don't wish to share it, but would it be possible to know why did you give up and what do you plan to do now career-wise?

    That feels odd.

    I'm far too ill to study. I don't have future plans beyond attempting recovery.

    Not really. I was born in early January so can't really do much for it as most people are skint and/or fed up after Christmas and New Years so I don't bother.

    I dunno. I assumed that nothing I ever say is noteworthy.

    I'm not sure 'getting well soon' is an option. To be honest, I'm not sure 'getting well' is an option.

    Er yeah, free stuff and cake, what's not to love?

    I have a strict rule against surprise parties and singing happy birthday though. Makes me cringe.

    I've had a few disappointing birthdays so I always try and make up for it the next year. I think after my 21st (which is on 7th Nov, so in a couple of weeks) I prob won't do much. I'm going to the Harry Potter studios for the third time for this one, lol. I used to have parties when I was a kid, then just had mates round or went for dinner, then when I was older I had house parties/went clubbing (except for my 18th when no one showed up).
