    I feel like nice looking people get more out of

    life and have a better life. I've never been a good looking woman and I'm overweight. A woman looking at me dismisses me as no threat. A man looking at me dismisses me as something not worth his time. I always have to work twice as hard as my pretty coworkers to be listened to...

    May I Die With Honour...or Live to See Better Days

    To mention an institution as horrific and seditious with regards to the life of a child is a task that goes against my better judgment. Positive efficacious existence is inundated by a tide of anguish, thrust upon those so innocent as to not recognize the in-evident fate about to...

    I've recently become attractive to people.

    I guess puberty did me a favor. I was obese, hideous, I had acne, etc. My skin is clear, I thinned out, my facial features were sharpened, I learned how to use make up to hide the acne scars and to enlarge my eyes and to slim my nose (it's a little wider, I don't like it), and...
