In 3 days, I will finally turn 18 years old. I'm excited for what's in store for me. But I haven't had a very fun birthday since my 14th. Reasons are that I have no relatives here in London except for my mum. Most of my friends went on holiday outside London (and how lucky they are to manage to get out of this wasteland that is East Ham) so there will be no party for me. So what I'm planning to do is to go to Nando's with my mum and some other friends and just hang out and go shopping. It's really OK for me since I am not the type of guy that sets up parties. So, may I ask what happened on your 18th? Or if you're about to turn 18, what are your plans? EDIT: My mum unexpectedly gave me a laptop as a birthday present in advance, since she thought I would need it for university.
