    So many changes and people dropping out of my life. I don't go to comedy shows, karaoke or jams any more. It is held in bars and I don't want to go to bars any more. The other comedians in my city are hard into drugs and drinking and I'm not like that. I'm through with going...

    I Wish I Had Friends...but Then Again I Dont

    In highschool I had about four good friends, we all had fun but I remember not really "wanting" to be their friend, I felt it was more of an obligation to have them in the first place. We all did the usual mischief and got into trouble and just had fun. But I remember...

    I Am "The Friendless Girl"

    I have been friendless for about 6 months now. Ever since I lost my last friend, I have been silent at school every single weekday. I have no one to talk to at lunch, at clubs, and other places. I have lots of enemies. What a horrible life :(

    I'm not really sure how it happened.

    One day I just realized that I don't have friends. Maybe it's my fault-I've always been shy and introverted, preferring drinking alone and listening to music or watching anime to actually going out with people. But I always had at least one person I could call or hang out with...
