Age 19) My parents sent me a camera and I skipped school to take pictures with it. I was 300 miles away from home and I felt really good. Some of my friends got me flowers and one made me a special card.
Age 20) I remember crying all day long, feeling sorry for myself. I curled up into a ball on my bed, not wanting to get up and face the world. Tony drove my car while Gillian Welch played on the speakers. I wanted to open the door and jump out while the car was still moving. Thee absolute worst birthday ever. Ever.
Age 21) We'll see what it has to offer. I hope a lot of fun fiascos and long time no see reunions. My mother has told me not to over-do it with the booze, my brother gave me 20 dollars and told me not to spend it all on cigs and crack, I told him that I would do my best. I hope that everyone importaint to me comes to my party and goes out with me on Saturday night.
