    Some people don't realize how annoying it is

    when they say "you're pretty for a black girl", or feel they have to make it a huge goal to point out the fact that they like black women when they message me, like I'm supposed to be so thankful for their generosity towards liking us. It's mind boggling frustrating when...

    I read people's stories.

    ..things cross my mind...and I don't mind telling them I've read their stories...but if someone reads mine I'm thinking...really? I can't write...I just post my thoughts, and I don't take time to put more than a rough draft in here. I am a reader, not a writer. I just like...

    I am always catching myself get jealous.

    I have a boyfriend we have been best friends for 5 years and out of those 5 years we have been dating for going on 3 years. He is such a good guy, sweet, caring, funny, and romantic. I guess he is such a good guy that I fear I might lose him to someone else. What should I do...

    I began my morning yesterday having a

    conversation with my father that he initiated. He was worried about why my mother was sleeping so much. I gently shared with him that it was due to his week long binge on prescribed meds and alcohol. He kept telling me she needed to get help and I asked him to instead worry...

    sometimes i wonder what was it really all about.

    ...what good is it having the experience and the knowledge, if even in the future the knowledge doesnt help you out. So why go with it....why not listen to yourself when you get the feeling of "don't go there"?

    I shouldn't feel gross just sitting here.

    . on my bed.. quietly.. not disturbing anyone.. not up to anything.. just a soul in a body. I shouldn't feel gross-- but I grow ashamed sometimes. Ehh. I'll forgive myself for it. We all get unreasonably upset with ourselves/our bodies. For the moment though, this sh-t sucks.

    Real

    As much as I wanted, compared to my sisters, I was never a well-behaved "traditional" Asian girl. I can be pretty shy what I would call as a timid joy, but I was never the kind of woman to live a passion without multiple „heavens“ or love someone without „hiccups“.  The...

    A Little About 'me' In Pictures ...

    Thank you to my EP Sisters  ... for accepting me! (Guess I'm the latter in this life.) Unfortunate I guess ... but I do have an opinion, on many things! I just wanna be ... me! Just a simple woman who loves life as perfect and imperfect as it is!

    I don't care about what people say.

    I'm 185cm and weight 475lbs. I LOVE being fat. I used to be athletic and thin when I was younger, but when I stopped practising sport and going to the gym, I started to gain weight. At first, I was only a bit chubby, but after eating and eating I got as fat as a pig! Being fat...

    Take Me As I Am Or Watch Me As I Go.

    I am never going to change myself to be who you want me to be. I am me and nobody else! If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. You have to accept all of me just as I will accept all of you. If you cannot do that, then leave.

    that I was improving. I'm not as impressionable and passive as I always used to be. And yes I was improving, well my body was, but what I'm learning is that I haven't improved my mindset yet. I still am passive. I do things that contradict what I know is right or wrong. I don't...

    I Love Being Me!

    I am me, and don't regret being myself. There are so many people that follow crowds that it's hard to find a true to life person now, someone who's themselves. In my small city, if there's one fashion trend, everybody has it and wears it on a daily basis. For the past few years...
