    I Don't Even Know Anymore

    I remember that when I was younger, I was able to construct strong opinions. They were based on facts, my point of view and on what I believed to be right for me. But now I'm not sure anymore. I always wanted to achieve something big. To become someone and to change something...

    Weaving My Way Into The Constant Unknown

    Boy, oh boy!  I can't remember how long ago I joined this group.  By now I'd hopefully have some clue, eh?  *sigh *  What it must be like to have it all together . . . In the figurative sense I'm still not sure.  I've aspired to work as a hotel front desk agent for...

    No Direction

    My life has never had direction or order in it. Maybe that's why I am so organised with certain things, because I'm trying to compensate for what I never had. I will cook meals a lot for my flatmates, offer to make coffee at precise times, do the chores, etc. Ever since I can...

    I've only been living on my own for a little over a year now and I realize I have my whole life in front of me practically, but I'm scared. I'm not sure what I want to do with my life. Everyone tells me that it's perfectly fine and I'll figure it out, but I already know of too...
