    Ik that I'm to young to worry bout this stuff

    but I do. I always feel that there is never someone really there for me. Except for my cousin who lives miles away. Yes I have friends and family but I always feel like they over look who I really am. I just want to feel wanted and to be in a place where I belong.

    I'm going into my sophomore year

    and I still don't have a major. What I really want to do there isn't a major for and I might not even be able to make a living doing it. I'm so stressed. Anyone else feel like they have no idea what they're doing? Lol.

    It feels like I'm becoming numb. Maybe I'm just tired.. Tired of struggling.. Tired of frustration.. Tired of existing in a world where on the daily I feel inferior. No, it's not a lack of self-confidence on the interior. It's a lack of resources which lead to a lack of...

    and have some time to myself. I need to think things out. I need to get away, and I want to say what I feel, but I feel like they're not going to listen. I feel like crying over it, but tears won't do anything. I just want to get away from it all.
