Male - 26 Years Old
Anyone ever had a birthday that went pretty wrong or uneventfully?
The 3rd was my 25th. Within the last year most of my group of really closest friends that I would usually celebrate my birthday with have moved out of state/country. My other group of close friends are too busy with work or school to do anything on a weekday.
My plan for my 25th was to go to Downtown Dunedin which has quite a few drinking establishments and just see what happens. Now even on weekdays Downtown is usually a happening place. Dunedin is random like that where you never know when a bunch of people you grew up with are going to be in one bar at the same time even if it is a Tuesday night. Well tonight the only places in Dunedin that had anything going on were Drum Circle night at Dunedin Brewery which is not my thing at all and Drag Queen Bingo at Blur nightclub which is not my thing. So I ended up spending my 25th getting hammered at Dunedin's favorite dive bar Skip's with a waitress in her late 40's, A lobster fisherman in his late 20's and Dunedin local legend Eddy, who were all also there by themselves. I just got drunk, watched a few innings of the Rays-Angels game and then went home.
If I were to sum this birthday up it would be "Bukowski-esque"
The last time I had this much of a sad and disappointing birthday was my 21st which is a whole other story.
