How Do I Celebrate My Birthday When I Am All Alone in My Life?

Last December, I turned 28. I didn’t really have friends, and I didn’t have the money I’m used to having, so I did something different for my birthday. I mean, sure, I had a birthday dinner the day before at Takami Sushi and Robata, my favorite sushi restaurant, from which I’m surprised people showed up to. But aside from that… this is what I did.

I signed up for all the free birthday food things on Google. I got all the free food I could get. I then got a $50 AMEX gift card on my birthday. I used that to buy a lot of double cheeseburgers and fries.

Then I gave it to homeless people on skid row.

However, since my birthday is so close to Christmas, and everyone becomes philanthropic during that time, my efforts were kind of a waste, as everyone else was feeding homeless people. However, it was very uplifting and rewarding. I’d recommend doing it, but probably in a less populated homeless community where the impact can be spread further.
