    People Don't Learn Anything From Me

    Today I was out with some friends. We're kind of geeks so we talk a lot about friendship and stuff while people at my age are doing drugs. So, one of my friends started saying what he had learn from each of us. When it came to me, nobody knew what to say. Also, they started...

    I really love to talk to people,

    but I sometimes feel that I'm losing a competition among my friends to see who is the most interesting. One of my really good friends is going out with a girl that I've been talking to longer than he has because she finds him more "interesting." I can be witty and fun, you just...
