    Loud

    I am a loud person.  At least once every few weeks I am told this usually in a condescending voice.  "you're so loud" uh "you are so rude".  I am tired of saying sorry for being loud.  I don't have a hearing problem - just loud.  Guess what I ain't changing, however I always...

    Wish I Were Different

    I am very shy and have always disliked that about me and have always wanted to change. This year I am in a class with only seven other students, so my shyness is especially noticeable. Everyday I dread going to that class and can't wait for it to end when I'm there. Everywhere...

    I'm Always The Last In Line..

    I feel like everybody is surpassing me. I feel like I am intellectually behind eveyone my age. I'm not up to par. It's sad how far behind I am .  I just feel like I should be put into a whole until the end of time.
