    The Looking Glass

    So much has changed... TRANSFORMATION So much was lost. INEVITABLE. Time is so precious. PRICELESS. Looking into the mirror what do I see? A round tiny face, bows in my hair, big brown eyes staring back at me. It's curiosity- that sends this urge in me to seek what I don't know...

    Since I got my heartbroken,

    about 2 1/2 years ago now - I really have just kept to myself. I don't quite know how to restart things. I also had a few friends from college - and I tried to rely on those when I became super sad about life - well, they ended up not exactly being spectacular in that regard...

    and get better. I will stop complaining about how much I hate my life, thanks to my friend on ep that told me that negative thoughts and deeds are worthless, so here is the new me saying I am sorry for the *** I was in 2014 and I will try my best to make it up to all of you. I...

    I think I am ready to close a few chapters in

    my life and start some new ones. I've been shooting up meth less frequently lately due to a few bad experiences. Wether it was caused by bad dope or shooting up in bad veins, the past few times have basically left me with very visible lumps up and down my arms that leave me in...
