    The Good Go Unrewarded

    Maybe I am selfish? Maybe it is selfish for me to feel so angry when everything just gets taken away from me? I have always been the good girl, pretty well behaved, haven't caused anyone too much stress. Then there's my sister, she's caused nothing but stress. Yet good people go...

    I think why I'm so bummed about not getting

    into my first choice university is because I felt like I was second best. I was rejected one day before everyone else got their offers, so I was literally THIS close to getting it. If they kept me for one more day I would have gotten in... The reason why I value this more than...

    I mean completely nothing to anyone and even now I'm just a commodity, all used up. I've just been told I can't do something to be "fair" on the other people, yet they do it to me all the time? This world is completely f*cked up. I don't know what I do so bad to deserve this kind...

    As A Student ...

     I'm still in high school. I always give everything I do my all. But no matter how much I push myself, I never come out on top. No one ever notices my efforts. That's what hurts most. There's no one there to say, "Hey, it's okay, you did great!" When it's the end of the day...

    Tired Of Giving
