    Why Be Popular?

    I used to want to be popular. Now, I don't understand why. I don't understand why people do whatever they can to befriend the popular people. It doesn't matter what the popular people are like, or what they do, as long as they have 900 friends on Facebook and throw big parties...

    I'm done wondering if I'd be less "solitary" had I grown up under different circumstances. I am a social loner. An introvert who enjoys good company. A shy girl. Who loves being the center of attention. But hates being stared at. And I'm bloody fine with that. I am so...

    I Like My Own Company

    I have no problem with being alone.  I enjoy being the solitary type.  I am comfortable within my own skin.  I can do almost anything alone that I would share with others.  When someone else is around, I truly appreciate their company.  Being alone is so relaxing.  You can...
