    No Thanks

     I think consuming substances to make you act stupid is just pointless, and well, stupid. It didn't take too many "We spent the whole day in a parking lot... shopping carts... woah" stories from my friends to turn me off pot. And why should I kill my brain cells...

    I'm not even religious, someone said in here that they were called "goody-two shoes", yeah, same here, and believe me I'm not all nice and fun and rainbows. I don't hate people who do it, it's their choice, I don't smoke either, does that make me better than you? No...

    I Don't Feel the Pull

    I don't know why, but I didn't feel any desire to do either even though it was a popular thing to do in high school. Possibly this is a function of my Aspergers. If so, I'm glad for it. I couldn't support a dope habit. My book buying takes most of my surplus cash.

    I love terms of endearment when used by people who are being genuine. But when someone just uses it online when they don't know who I am I find it to be fake and meaningless.
