    How I Got Here.

    I haven't put pen to paper (neither literally nor virtually) in 5 years. I'm hoping this helps me to do so. I once read in a Paulo Coehlo novel (I think it was The Zahir) that it is only by sharing our stories, telling them again and again, that we can be free of them. So that's...

    I don't want my family to spy on me

    and they are very bad at English. I can be me here, talk about everything I want without having a BAD feedback of my family. Yes, everything I do, love or plan is bad in their opinion... But now I am here and even if they knew, they can't understand a thing :D

    I Am Here Because Of Writing Freedom

    I have a blog which I write under my true pen name and have my real picture posted but I needed a place where I can write freely without fear that I will be judged. Judgement that can and will be carried over into the real world. I have many demons I need to deal with and this...

    What You Need To Know.

    Let me make it clear, I'm just here for the experience, some relaxing time and to possibly make some friends. Not to sex chat or cam or anything else. I enjoy good topics and conversation.

    To keep an eye on someone,

    to see whether he/she is doing okay. The day I'll be satisfied that they are really happy will be the day I'll be long gone.
