    I feel that, as humans,

    I don't mind being alone, but I hate the feeling of not having any one... I guess I'm used to it. So many years of being excluded in my class.

    I like being alone. It lets you gather your thoughts, think about life, study certain topics, and best of all, you don't have to deal with peoples annoying bullsh*t.
