I want today to not exist.

A smashing total of 0 people showed up to my birthday festival, so I had a massive celebration. Today was an unexpected success.

I'm not going to school next week.

I'm never trusting another person again.

Thanks for all your help, guys.

I can always count on you to lift my spirits when I'm feeling down.

Perhaps...

It is unwise to expect immediate responses from Oasis, given its current situation?

I am very sorry that your birthday celebration failed. If there's anything I can do (and I mean that in a genuine way, not as a platitude) please let me know.

There's one thing you could do.

Visit Yakow and ask him why he hasn't replied to any attempts at communication. But he'd probably be too creeped out to answer anything.

Hm

All things considered, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Well...

Now you're getting why I want to shut the site down, since there is no reasonable expectation of support in any sort of timely manner.

I do think you need to turn this around, though. I had a similar thing happen, and while my initial impulse was to question why people hadn't shown up, I ultimately had to realize that I wasn't building deep enough friendships with people.

I'm sorry this happened to you, but try and use it to propel yourself in a different more meaningful direction with people. If you want another day or two to think people suck, that's fine, too, of course...

I'm not angry at anyone.

I'm angry at their families. One of the people's parents told him he couldn't go because of grades, another person went to Annapolis with his family, and Yakow's sister was returning from college. The last of the three said he'd still try to make it, but I haven't gotten a single response from any emails or text messages, and he hasn't been answering the phone. And that is the part that's really bothering me. I would have gotten over it if it weren't for that. So I have no idea what happened now and I'm just disappointed and upset.

I need to ask him what happened as soon as I see him again.

I'm shattered...

I very much wish that I had some wise words of advice to share... but nothing that you could usefully exploit are forthcoming. :(

However... you will survive!

I've tried using music therapy.

Nothing has worked so far.

That sucks man,

I'm wishing your next birthday will turn out to be better. :-\

This was my first attempt at a birthday party in years.

I need to get back into it, and maybe it'll start going better. Like what Yakow said about the Soundgarden comeback.
