    What Has Happened to Me?

     About 16 months ago I got a job that I have wanted to do all my life. I love my colleagues, and even though the job is not all it was cracked up to be, I still loved it. Obsessed with it, even. I worked unpaid overtime, thought about the job at all times. I was my job...

    Can't Figure It Out

    Who am I? I wish i could answer that question. I really don't know. I don't really have a personality in the real world. I tend to take on a personality similar to whoever i am hanging out with at the time. I have a bit of a personality on here which leaves me wondering if I am...

    Two People In One?

    I'm so confused about myself. I feel as though I have two sides of me, & this really confuses me about my identity. Sometimes I can be a strong-willed, non self-conscious, directly honest, hard-shelled person, saying whatever's on my mind & being somewhat mean, cold, or proud...

    Who Am I?

    I never really fit in much. When I am with my friends I feel like I am a broken mirror. I reflect what they do, but not quite right. They all know who they are...and they are firm in their beliefs. I feel like I don't know who I am, what I like, not even what I'm good at! It's...

    I Have No Idea Who I Am

    Sometimes I'm so sweet and innocent. The type of person who raises for charity and champions for the needy. I have a sweet smile and a heart of gold!! Yet other times I can be so fiery and strong; championing for change for myself and others!  Sometimes I am such a hopeless...

    What Do I Like? I Have No Idea.
