    Sin Of Presumption

    A dog was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby with it and go out to attend other matters. She always returned to find the child soundly asleep with the dog faithfully watching over him. One day something tragic happened. The woman as usual, left the baby in the...

    I laugh about a lot of things really,

    and it don't worry about emotional guards. What can a guy say to me that can hurt? I have three brothers and I have experienced all kinds of humour and ire with them. No, people expect you to be a defensive female, in the pattern of English girls who have been put upon for so...

    I once had a close friend

    that didn't talk to me for the longest time before we had formally met and been introduced. We knew each other, went to the same school and had a class together, but we never talked or anything. Once we met and started talking, we got along great. She later (months later...

    When people first meet me I've been told

    that they didn't like me because they thought I was mean. On the other hand when we talked I turned out to be really chill. I'm not a complete ***** but I do act like it most of the time especially to around people I don't know because for some reason it makes me feel better. It...

    People Judge Me All The Time

    I am judged constantly by the house I live in, the car I drive, the fact that my family is comfortable, I have two great kids and my life seems outwardly perfect. For that fact people judge me think that I am a snob and they cannot get past the superficial things. For that I have...

    This is so true about me!

    Right now I have purple/pinkish hair, a septum ring, 5/8 plugs in my ear lobs and well over 30 tattoos. I love to express myself with my appearance. Most people don't know that I am one of the most kind/caring person you will ever meet! I had a hard childhood being raised...

    There's a lot more to me

    than meets the eye. In school people often see me as quiet, shy, innocent even. The real me is insane, off-the-wall and disconcerts others with her humour. If you're fortunate enough for me to allow you to get to know me better, you're in for a real surprise ;)

    As soon as they see the tattoos,

    most people think "jailbird", "punk" or god knows what else. I hate it, I'm not a bad person and I wish people would get out of that mindset. :/

    Not shy by a long way.

    But I am quiet as I believe that if you've not got something key and significant to say, then don't. So this is what others think of me. What they are often surprised by is the distinct character that can rise from the smouldering ashes at times!

    Its more apparent in my personal taste.

    I love jazz and swing dancing. I believe I was born in the wrong era. I go to an event and I'm the only odd ball out. I see the "why is she here?" stares. As uncomfortable as it may be, I am not going to stop being me. Period.

    I have many tattoos and body modifications.

    But some days I really wish I didn't. Everyone ether looks at me like I'm crazy or like I'm just a punk. I wish people would get to know me cause I'm actually a really nice person. It's just hard for me to show emotions.

    People obviously use stereotypes to classify others by a first glance. It's kind of programmed into our brains to do this. But as time has passed, it's gone from just a basic impulse to something that is used to judge and degrade people sometimes. I'm not saying I'm innocent of...
