    You Know, I Can Think For Myself...

    Sigh, I'm tired of having others assuming that I'm mentally incapable of making my own decisions. I'm twenty-two-years-old, an adult, who's more than capable of making my own decisions. I'm not going to do something just to appease someone else. No way. That's not how I roll.

    I Am Fed Up With Just That

    I eat mostly junk food. I don't shower or shave if I don't have to go to work. I'm generally unhealthy and obscene. And I'm enjoying myself.

    Yeah, right..... Sometimes it's for my "own good" to make the mistake. Don't you think? So how about getting off your high horse & stop assuming you know anything about me or what's good for me? K, thanks!
