So my 18th Birthday is next week, and I’m trying to think of what I want to do. Last year I had some friends over and watched a movie, but that was kind of it. Even though I love her, my mother is trying to take control and let me have no say in anything. I just want to get some really cute decorations, set up a dance floor, and have some fun with some friends at home. But she wants a really big fancy dinner in the valley so everyone can “eat, celebrate, then leave” in her words. Yes that would be cool, but it would have to be a place she wants to eat. I’m just sick of never having an opinion on MY life.
