    I'm totally ****** up.

    I'm late in life, no girl, no money, I skate downhill and I don't care about what people think of me. I miss something in life, I like to drink but I have different brakes. I've been in a deep depression few years ago and I didn't cure myself. I keep thinking about death and I...

    Mixed Emotions

    How I managed to overcome every tragedy that life has thrown my way this year, It's a miracle. When you feel your lowest, people expect of you to just jump up and be okay. But I'm not okay, but I'll manage because I don't give up not without a fight. Whatever happened yesterday...

    I Want To Be Real

    This is hard for me, I am almost 35, but I just found a book my wonderful grandparents gave me on my 7th birthday. I don't think I read it until now, but it really hit me hard. I love my grandparents, and they both passed away in the past few years. Anyway, I miss them...

    Sometimes you just reach a point

    where you tell yourself you have to get your life together. Unfortunately for me, that point is now.

    Nope

    Right now, I am not okay, I am very far from okay right now, but I am mangaging. I am waking up. I am doing what I have to do to get through the day. I am manging.

    Pretty much went to college

    for something I thought I'd love but now I hate it. It started months ago but I worked to hard to get here to quit now. If I quit I'll be in massive debt and have to owe money back ASAP. I'm mad and wish I would have thought about it more. At the time I was okay with this quick...

    I'm Not Okay, I Promise

    I'm not okay, as a matter of fact. I have more issues than a magazine stand, and I happen to be quite stuck in terms of health, finances, and relationships. I can't bear to write yet another story that lists every single one of my problems, but I will assure you that I have tried...

    The Truth About Love

    Maybe I'm wrong but all I've ever known about love is pain. I've fallen in love only to get cheated on. I've reinstated my faith in love only to become disappointed as I watch others around me cheat and lie to the ones they say they love. They all have the audacity to throw that...
