    That's Me

    I am the one trying to make my way through with the least amount of human contact possible. I will usually just hang back and let everyone go before me and you won't find me in a crowd of people voluntarily. Unless it's a rock concert, that's different because the energy is...

    Panic Attacks Are Not Fun.

    I avoid crowds at all costs.. I cannot stand to be around many people. Walmart is one of these places.. I believe it was made by an evil person who wants to see people die. I always have panic attacks when I'm around a bunch of people. Panic attacks are NOT fun.

    Never trust what you hear about a woman. Rumors either come from a man that can't have her or a woman that can't compete with her.
