    It seems as though people enjoy defining who their peers are...especially high school students! My friends and classmates tell me who I am. This is not right, but what can I do about it? I am merely another student among 3,000 private school students. I tried to show the "real...

    I have worth, potential, talent, and I'm proud of that! On the inside. I just wish I could get all that on the outside. Lol 😂

    Everybody is so convinced

    that I am the happiest human being on this planet. That nothing can ever or will ever bring me down. How can everyone be so blind? Or am I just that great of an actress? How can someone be so different when they are alone then they are with everyone else.? What's wrong with me?

    I am very much attracted to my brother in law.

    I think we would have made a better couple than my husband and I though I would never leave my husband for any reason. I fantasize about kissing him slowly and passionately. Oh well a girl will always dream.
