    I Don't *want* To...

    If there's one thing I know about myself it's that I'm not like most people, not even like unusual people I know. I know I don't belong with most people, I don't fit in, and to be honest, I don't want to. I take some pride in being different. Whether you...

    Make The Memories Go Away...

    Over the summer, I was stuck at this place. I knew no one, and the people I worked with sucked. They would go out together and never invite me, and then they would talk about how much fun they had in front of me at the office. It was a horrible experience..no one wants to feel...

    Forever I Guess
