    Done?

    I have this sinking feeling in my stomach. I feel an anger welling up inside me. Not just anger, sadness...a sadness that has been here, increasing in my heart. No one sees it. My three best friends are three hours away. I'm away at college, sitting in my apartment, in need of a...

    Maybe that's my role in life! Be there for everybody else but never sure where I'm going for me!

    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...

    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.

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

    “I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not...

    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...

    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.

    Maybe Someday

    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...
