How to spend christmas and new years alone?
I'm 19 and I have the worst parents ever, not once have they held a birthday for me or ever given me a christmas gift, I don't care so much about gifts now that I'm older, I don't have other family or friends and definitely no GF so I wanted to know what should I do to enjoy myself, I've already left a present under the tree for the children's hospital and it felt great but need some more ideas, last year I sleep through christmas day so anything is better than that lol
