    When Things Change

    When I was real young, I was fearless and curious. I still have the curiosity to some extent but fearless no longer exist. When we moved back to my mom's hometown, there was just no one to really connect with by the time I entered school I was afraid of it. I went through random...

    To A Fair Degree

    Online I have no problems. I can say something as silly as 'flying poop monkey' (please don't ask where it came from) and even feel the slightest bit humiliated by typing it or that someone, anyone really, might read it.It's in person that I have difficulties. I would imagine it...
