    He Was Not My Responsibility

    When I was in my previous relationship, I was so convinced that I could "fix" my boyfriend. I really believed that I could change him and make him stop treating me so badly. When he became depressed, I believed it was up to me to make all of his problems go away. When he killed...

    Just Their Soul

    I can't fix a person because I am not a doctor and do not have any inclination to spend my time working on organic matter that will be dust one day anyways. I mean someone has to do it, but I fix souls or at least make a conscious effort to try.

    I Hate Them Too....

    The ones who think pretending to like you will be their ticket into "heaven". But I -will- attempt to help someone I actually care about. Usually these are people who I think make a better world... If you are in the circle, then it's a really decent bet that I actually really...

    It's a horrible thing. I've seen many (South) Koreans still believing in patriotism. Patriotism is basically Fascism in a nutshell.
