    O.J. Simpson Will Pay For This!

    I was in college when O.J. Simpson's murder trial was going on. The public's obession with the case was as compelling as the case itself. On the day the verdict was announced, student's gathered in the school's campus center to see it on T.V. Hundreds of students gathered in a...

    I would have to say this is probably one of my biggest vices. I live off of to-do lists and schedules.  I make plans and do my best to stick with them.  I do everything in my power to run things "smoothly" whether events or relationships. But on the plus...

    I try to control everything in my life

    and everyone in my life. I tell my spouse what to do and then I tell him that he did that wrong. I try to control what my family does and what they think and if it is not my way it is the highway. I am sick of me.

    Control Freak Story

    First off, I am a control freak.  However, if there was a scale from 1-10, I'm not so sure how I'd be rated?  I've been married a little over a year but have been with my husband for 5 1/2 years now.  Since the beginning, he told me I was controlling, always...

    I Hate Relying On People, For Anything.

     I'd rather put in more work to get something done, then let someone else do it. People are so careless these days. They're selfish, and only think of themselves.  Even if it takes me way longer to do something, let me do it. At least when I do it. It gets done...
