Happy Birthday to Me

by Noise Pollution

I turned 21 today.

It’s funny, a year ago I was desperately waiting for this day, now I don’t mind letting it slip past, completely uneventful. It’s a bit depressing, actually. This big, special day in my life has become meaningless due to my sobriety. I can’t just say “fuck it” and drink for a day either, because I have to be careful around alcohol with my medication. I’m stuck being permanently sober now.

I guess that’s probably a good thing, but it doesn’t make sitting here without a drink on my 21st birthday any better. Oh well.
