    I've just been wondering(serious question no

    mean to offend anyone) but if you're an atheist what is the meaning of life? Why do atheist people in school (teachers) think suicide is so bad if really there's no need to be on earth...just a thought.

    I'm told it's zero point two nine.

    I just experienced the loss of a friend in a

    drunk driving accident, she was only 15 years old. It's been a wake up call for a lot of people in my school, and I can't help but wonder why it'd happen to her. She was so young, she never even got to experience and find her own potential as she grew up... I know that deep down...

    I just don't why I should exist.

    I mean, I don't know why I should try to do something. What's the point of it. What's the point of studying, working , archiving something. In the end, nothing of it's matter. I'm not depressed or anything. I just can't find any reason for life. Like friends or family it's...

    Sometimes I like to lose myself between thoughts

    that cheer me up. I like it because it is easier for me to think about the things that don't have spikes that could hurt me. But then I realize that the reality is far more harmful, far more spiky. I realize that maybe I'm not that necessary for this world. I think that I'm...
