    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...

    The Story Of My Life.

    Umm...

    I try to be a social butterfly, accepting of people and never forgetting to just be myself, but sometimes I feel like when I'm in a group of people I don't know but should get to know, I'm on stage and they're this very critical audience watching my every move and if I take one...
