Should I do something for my birthday?

I am turning 17. My birthday is nearing, and it falls on a Monday [Apr. 16]. I never really planned anything for my last few birthdays, just small get-together parties with pizza. Nothing too special.
I'm not too sociable, that is I hate being in a social setting because I eventually start to pick at the flaws of everything around me. I know it's common to not celebrate your birthday, but I find it unsettling that I have no drive whatsoever to even do anything other than to sleep and stay at home doing nothing.
I have friends, but I don't feel like inviting them anymore. The motivation for celebration is gone.
Now, I'm not some freak who's afraid or hateful of society; I have a part-time job and I juggle school with that and I also go out with friends from every week. What bothers me is that all of my other friends are doing something while I am not, even if they do something that we do all the time or something that is incredibly small.
So what's your guys' take on this? Do nothing or hold the biggest party on the block? All ideas welcome, just need some perspective here.
