    I Don't Like Anyone?

    Last semester i had this crush on a really cute girl. She was in my Spanish class and sat in the seat diagonally in front of me. She was kind of quiet, mild mannered, and had a sense of humor. But like most girls I fall for, she had a boyfriend. This semester i started liking...

    I think I want to pursue a specific career

    but then something comes along or I get doubtful about my abilities and I change my mind. I can't decide what I want to do and it is stressing me out too much.

    What to do when your first real passion in life?

    Pray to god and keep fighting. Or for anyone with differing views just keep fighting. I mean why not? We have nothing else to lose...we already lost our selves.

    I can't decide what I want to do with my life.

    I've been in community college for nearly 5 years, and I refuse to transfer to a university until I decide on a major. Once I think I've found something I'm interested in, I discover something new and everything else gets boring. Even though I have a job, it's not what I want...

    It's A Little Bit Harsh

    My friend tells me that I never help him during classes, while he always help me whenever I needed something. The problem is, during classes, he would ask me questions; yes, while the professor is talking. He would often do that, then I will always ask him to wait until the...

    Is This True , Or I'm Just Kidding Myself?

    But then I guess that's half the fun, watching your life unfold.  I thought my life would be a straight road, that I would finish high school, get a job, fall in love, get married and start a family.  I didn't have any idea what was in store for me.  Still haven't married and...
