    I'm not sure if this is the right place

    since I am not the girl but rather have a story about one. Sophomore year of 2008 I made a dear friend. She would flow with joy and we'd make each other laugh uncontrollably in classes. She was taken and by a mutual friend I might add so I never thought of making a move on her...

    A Little Different. Or Just In My Dreams.

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm fooling myself in thinking I'm different. Am I really just like everyone else? I'd like to hope not, just to be completely and utterly diverse. To be wearing skirts when everyone's wearing jeans. But why try at something that will do nothing for me...

    Welcome To My Life

    My entire life is spent with people believing they know me.They don't. My mother just recently discovered what my favourite colour is. She doesn't know why. None of my friends know I adore X-Men. Chances are, they never will. One friend (tops) knows I write stories for websites...

    Another Shy Person Here

    My shyness has caused me problems in the friendship and relationship areas: 1) People see I am shy and assume I am some cold, stuck-up person who is full of herself. Based on this they decide to completely ignore me. 2) People try to get to know me, but I need a large amount...

    I'm A Listener...

    There are some people who can talk and talk and talk and can be super sociable but don't get me wrong....I have a lot of friends but it's because of the quiet grace that I hold. I'm more of an observer and only the closest people in my circle know about me.

    They Never Knew

    There are definitely people who have known me for many years and only know very little about me.  There are people I consider friends (on different levels of closeness) who would never suspect that I have the past that I do, in fact, have.  I was generally...

    Me Too.

    The people who know me the best have only known me for two to three years. The ones I grew up with think I'm someone entirely different - and I must admit, it feels so wonderful to surprise them with little things they'd never dream of me saying.

    Honestly, there are about 6 people outside my family that know me. That know every single little detail about everything I do or have done. I dont need anyone else to know. They don't need to know what's going on in my head, why I am the way I am. Sometimes it's...

    This Is So Me.

    oh wow this fits me to a T. This is a problem I wish I didn't have with people. I have co-workers who have known me for years, but don't know a thing about me. My own family don't even fully know who I am or what goes on inside of my head, I'm a pretty private person...

    Sure Thaaaaang

    I am the type of girl you'd see in the hall and perhaps smile, but never be able to make remembrance of anything in regards to personality.. Sure, you might recall me from class discussions...I was the loud mouthed girl stating my opinion, but you probably didn't think much of...

    I had a friend (we arent friends anymore) me and her were close, we was bestfriends. But she never knew me. She knew very little about me. It was almost like she didnt care to know me more. But it could also be me. I dont trust alot of people and i keep to myself. Like i am...

    This Is So True

    It's Kind of Sad...

    ...looking back at places that I've been for years, and realizing that very few people (if any) know hardly anything about me. Sometimes I wish I could have opened up; expressed myself and made connections with people, like so many others seem to do with very little effort. But...

    My Friends and Family

    Yes I Am....

    I am the girl, you have known forever, but ther one you know so little about. I have sides of me, that I don't show anyone. I have parts of me that I am scared to tell. I have fears, and dreams, that don't go past my mind. You have known me for so long, but yet...

    Not That Kind

    I'm not the kinda girl to hang out with and get to know, not in person, I have better friends on here then I do in real life, except for two people anyway.

    I hide a lot of my true emotions and thoughts from people. I also don't like sharing things about me. I'm a very private person. I've shared a lot here on EP that I probably wouldn't with someone in real life. I've been on here since the 22nd of September, so I've been here for...
