    I really hate my parents.

    All they do is spend their money on cigarettes and beer. My grandma is the one who brings me shopping and does all of the stuff my mom should do. My mom doesnt even tell me shes proud of me. or loves me. Sometimes i just wanna kill myself.

    I hate the feeling of being lonely in your own

    home even when you have a family that lives with you. Just feel like I don't connect to them. Such an odd feeling

    WELL. I was supposed to move out of town to do

    flight training about a month ago but my father never showed up to fetch me and kept postponing the trip. Yesterday I was just putting on my pjs at 4 pm so I could do a movie marathon and sleep. Dad shows up out of nowhere and says "we're going right now." Now I've moved. I'm...

    Ever since this girl first walked into our

    school for the first time, I couldn't take my eyes off her, and I know I probably wasn't the only one gazing at her beauty. Through my mind I was thinking "you know what, I'm gonna try to talk to her, I need to man up, I need to know how to talk to a girl and here's my first...

    I hate to admit it but things affect me alot

    more than they should. People say its too soon for me to feel this strongly for someone. Ive been seeing him for four months and now he says he 'wants a break from it all' what is it all? Why so i feel so down and heartbroken? I cant stop thinking about him and wish he would...

    Am I on the verge of a breakdown?

    I am a Feeler, not a Thinker. Tonight, I realized I've made a horrible, horrible mistake. It can't be undone, and is very expensive. I'm feeling very lost and alone right now. I "feel" like jumping into the Grand Canyon... head first... since this is what has gotten me into...

    I used to be able to have the 'oomph' to go out

    and do stuff with everybody. Now I feel stressed, alone, and walking around like a zombie. I find it incredibly difficult to do my school work, to socialize with friends and family, to do outside activities, and much more. Like I keep telling myself I need to get a grip of my...

    I feel so lost. Job applications are not
