The 6 struggles of being a summer baby

You spent countless nights each semester going out with your friend’s for their birthdays, taking care of them on their 21st and crafting each present perfectly. Sadly, as the school year ends you realize- you won’t be with any of your sisters during your own birthday

6) They are all hours away- while you will still may get countless phone calls and texts, there is no one with you to go out celebrating with.. which leads to

5) Celebrating with your high school friends- these people, while you were really close with a few years ago, now don’t really know you or your likes and dislikes, which will lead to them dragging you to a movie or your old hangout place in your hometown where you have to pretend that you want to run away and find the closest bar

4) All of your presents come late- or your college friends forget. Not having a big poster of all your sisters birthday’s on it means that your birthday can easily be forgotten while everyone is off studying abroad or on the trip of their lives. If they do remember, the mail causes your gift to come late or you have to wait till the school year starts to get it

3) You feel kinda sad having a “fake” birthday outing with your sisters. But you really want to have an excuse to take to many shots and have someone else take care of you- so a fake one is better than nothing

2) Parents aren’t too big on having you away for your birthday, cause well they have been there for all the other ones. So this leads to not being able to travel anywhere most of the summer because all the trips overlap with you turning a year older

1) Honestly, having a summer birthday makes your birthday not as special. You don’t have your best friend decorating your room with streamers and balloons, and you don’t get to have your waltz or complete your shot book on your birthday. It has to get postponed to August, and after everyone has recovered from recruitment. At least you get to show the new pledges a good time, cause lets be honest, your 21st birthday (or “21st”) is gonna be a rager, no matter how long you have to wait
