    I try to use more words Because I'm Writing

    after all and may defend opinions a bit more but I'm not faking a thing and will treat people the same way I do offline, though not being able to see people's emotions or there bad attitude may make me a bit nicer. Good day

    Why Be Anyone But The Fabulous Me?

    When I first joined EP I decided to be anonymous, but I was still me. All of my experiences and stories are real. I have recently decided not to hide my identity since I couldn't find any real reason to do so. The only thing that changed in my account are the photos that I...

    With Two Exceptions...

    Of course I'm not anonymous offline, and I certainly don't unleash my sexuality as I'm beginning to do here. But other than that, who I am here is exactly who I am in real life.

    I'm Just Not Very Good At Lying

    This is me. I don't like to be fake,

    I don't like to pretend to be another person who is better than I really am, but it hurts when people here see me differently, thinking that I'm mature and fun while I know that I'm childish an dull, I wish they can see the real me.
