A young man stands in his room for no apparent reason. It just so happens that today, the 14th of December (Time zones are weird), is this young man's birthday. Let's assume you were this young man for just a little while. What would it be like, being 15?
Well, let's find out.

Your name is now ALIENOID. Apparently the name of some other guy but that's not important right now.

You are standing in your room like a bit of a numbskull, your sister walking in and - as well as wishing you a happy birthday - reminds you that you're currently half way to being 30 years old.

A brief wave of sarcastic panic courses through your body as you let out a fake scream. It was more of a groan actually. Yeah, not the best thought to be thinking now is it?

You also realise that since it's almost 7 o'clock in the morning, nobody will be online anywhere in your country. Perhaps not the best time to checking for birthday wishes despite the fact that you have received a few already. I mean what sane person gets up at 6 in the morning? On their birthday. On a Sunday. A madman, that's who.

And you're the maddest man of them all, in terms of sanity. Emotionally, you're actually quite happy.

Of course, you stop being happy when you realise that you are no longer ALIENOID. Your time in the spotlight has faded and now he must go back to being himself.

Your friends across the world are online!
They don't know it's your birthday though since you happen to live one day in the future to them. But you remind them of your birth anniversary anyway and they wish you a good one.

@Alienoid: Acually I would be online because 06:00 in your time would be 15:00 at my time.

Living in Europe have some +s

Did you make that background? It's very nice.

So like no chair?

@JermhyTheHedgehog: You go back to being ALIENOID upon the memory of what happened to your beloved chair. A very unfortunate accident, you remember it like it was yesterday. In fact, it was yesterday. And significantly less of an accident as you originally made it out to be.

Despite the computer lurking at the side of your room, you decided to give your standard computer chair a temporary new home. A welcome home with shelter and warmth and everything a good chair would need. It is currently located DOWNSTAIRS, which you find strange, since you actually don't have stairs in your household. One story is all you have, actually. Replace DOWNSTAIRS with IN ANOTHER ROOM and we'll be all good, see? You simply put it in a new location in order to round the number of chairs in that other room up to a solid TEN, which is precisely what you need. Wheelie chairs are awesome birthday thrones anyway.

Nonetheless, you go back to not being ALIENOID because it is no longer his birthday. You can no longer be ALIENOID until next year. And good god is that a long while away.
