    Finally The After Shock Is Gone..

    and all that's left is something of a clear head. I should have written this a year ago when I separated from my ex on the 31st of 2010... but I didn't. A year later of sowing wild oats and trying to see how life was just starting to melt for me everything falling into place...

    How Many Times Has It Been?

    Oh well. This seems to be my theme. I am a failed phoenix. Halfway through coming back to life, I die again. Then, I make another attempt to rise from the ashes. I know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm not sure I have the strength to fix things. However, if I don't, then life is...

    It Seems As If I Am Always Having To Start Over

    I am so tired of it. I think I have moved at least four times this past year. I moved out of my mother's house, moved in with my sisters, had to move in my brother's for work, moved back to my sisters, then now, I am back at my mother's. For temporary though. We're planning on...
