    When I was about 12 or 13 it stopped becoming such a big deal to me. I've never really enjoyed birthdays, tbh, probably because I hate being the centre of attention. Although it's nice to get birthday text messages and gifts etc., my phone constantly buzzing makes me want to dive head first under my duvet covers and not come out of my room until it's all over.

    TBH, I don't really plan much for my birthday. I try to treat it as an ordinary day, but a few days or a couple of weeks before, I have friends and family asking me for what I want. I tell them "nothing" straight up and I still get cards, presents/ money and a cake :/

    This has been going on for a few years now and I haven't even reached my 16th yet...

    Probably my 14th I stopped caring. It's just another day and as I was born in the middle of May I'm always revising for exams anyway.
