Who threw your first birthday party after you left the organization, or did you throw it for yourself?
My best friend threw mine, it was my 18th birthday. She made a huge homemade cake for me with all 18 candles and icing. They got me one of those stupid coneshaped hats to make me wear because they said I'd missed out and invited everyone from our extended friend group at school, even though I hadn't really be able to hang out with them outside of school much yet. They all went together to get a bucket of little presents to make sure I had at least one for every year I had missed out on growing up and wrapped everything with orders to tear the paper as much as possible. I got a lot of those "throw back to childhood" types of items given to me as well. What was your first birthday party like? And how did it compare to birthdays you had before you were in the truth if you weren't raised in it.
