How should I celebrate my 17th birthday? - its today?

Asked by nailpolishfanatic (6590 points ) May 19th, 2011

My birthday is today. Now its 13:40 and I haven’t done anything. I just got out of bed. I am a very laid back and shy person. I do not really enjoy throwing huge parties… actually I have never even done so. I just prefer having my closest friends with me. I have no idea what to do. Maybe we could do it over the weekend or tomorrow or something because I have difficulties what to do. I kind of feel like just staying at home alone and watching television but I also kind of what to do something.
Please help me.

Happy birthday! Go to a museum with your best friends and then out for a bite to eat! Have fun!

Happy birthday! Do whatever you want. If you’re feeling lazy and just want to watch TV, go for it. You can plan an evening out with your friends for the weekend. Dinner, a movie, dancing, an evening in with lots of yummy snacks and manis/pedis for everyone… Make it your day and enjoy it. Seventeen was a great year!

@Seelix thank you ;) I think I might go with that one… I see first how many more responses I receive. I think for today I can just hang in and then weekend I could do something.

Happy birthday! Do what pleases you. Eat something you love with people you love. Do something you’ll all enjoy with those people. Just have a good day.

A very happy birthday. I try to celebrate many unbirthdays throughout the year due to my birthdate – Dec.31. It’s the worse day of the year to celebrate anything other than New Year’s Eve.

Do what feels right. No one is judging.

@Sunny2 thank you;D
@gailcalled oh wow! But its so cool though, being born on that day ;)

Well thank you to everyone who answered. Today I think I will just have some time to myself. I am thinking of doing something over the weekend.

Happy Birthday! My fav is a pizza party. No cooking, easy cleanup, and as many combos as you like.

Do they have any places (like a fancy hotel or a tea shop) that serves an Afternoon Tea? That would be really fun for you and one to 3 of your friends, or your mom.

Go to the fanciest restaurant in town, but just order dessert and coffee with a few friends.

Plan a picnic (with or without boys). If you need someone to drive you, try to go to the mountains or the beach or a lake (not sure where you live) and pack some sandwiches, potato salad, chips, cookies and lemonade.

Do you have an ice skating rink anywhere near your town? That’s always fun and then you can go out for pizza afterwards.

Happy birthday! If today were my birthday, I’d go to Haagen-Dazs and get two scoops of my favourite ice cream in a chocolate covered waffle cone.

For starters.

^ doesn’t have to be anything big but let loose a little! your 17! you have to go off to college soon! live it up while you can! ( :

@Julietxx3 Actually that’s what I did.
But the thing is that I am not aloud to go partying. I have to be 21 to get into clubs :/

@nailpolishfanatic Partying is not all it’s cracked up to be anyway. If you can figure out a million and one ways to have fun without partying, you will become amazingly interesting and popular. And that will bode well for you, throughout your life.

@nailpolishfanatic you dont need to go to a club, just invite a few friends over (as many as you want) and just enjoy each others company! have a dessert (maybe a cake) some snacks, some drinks and that’s all you need. As long as you are with people you love anything can be fun! And partying is amazing btw, it lets you forget about stress and work for a while ( :
