    It Started As An Innocent Crush

    I went to elementary school that was situated in the South of Chicago. It was one of those schools that was filled with many students who were gang affiliated or had serious mental problems, as most schools like that at the time did. I was one of the only Mexican American...

    Trust Is Delicate

    I was friends with this girl for four years. Our friendship started in middle school and ended in the middle of high school. I had to end it because she made me feel awful. She would often get mad or upset with me and give me the cold shoulder. Whenever I tried to ask her what I...

    I Broke Up With My Dream

    I broke up with a friend, who also happened to be my ... boyfriend ... kind of.  It was a friendship with on and off periods of passionate romance. As a partner he is horrible. I really mean it: immature, selfish, fresh, irresponsible, unattached. As a friend he is the most...

    I feel like I'm getting divorced.

    Here it is: I think I have a little sight into what you feel when you're getting divorce and when you're just divorced. I had that one longtime friend, to whom I shared everything. Obviously, I had a lot of expectations, like honesty and right-speaking. I always thought that...

    Did She Really Just Say That?

    So I'd been good friends with this girl since freshmen year and by senior year she had really changed.  She wasn't the funny and chipper person I'd known when I entered high school.  She was now cynical and judgemental, yelling at people in the hall that they look like...
