    Granted Its My Own Fault

    I Am Alone

    I don't have anyone to go out with. After all, I got used to be alone, and I don't know whether I want to change it now.

    I'm Surprised My Computer Isn't Broken....

    I sit behind my computer so much, I'm surprised its not completely given up on me. Kind of like I've given up on myself. I moved out here to Kansas from Washington State and what a difference. I'm out in the country with the closet big city 60 miles away in both directions. I...

    I Guess I Never Got Used To It

    I guess I never got used to going out. In school I never really went anywhere, and I never went anywhere with the few people I could consider friends except maybe 3 times and that was all during middle school. Now that I'm in college I guess I get out slightly more often, but...

    Stress Free

    I strive to make my life as stress free as possible and if that means I spend less time outside my home then so be it. I leave for work because I have to. I work late at night to avoid more people too. I like the night crowd anyway. They are more laid back and sure some might be...

    Go places but my parents are annoying. Always worried that I'll die & they treat me like I'm in middle school even though I'm in college. They act like I can't take care of myself. They wouldn't even let me go out to eat with my friends that I made in college. I'm ready to return...

    More than a full year- As of this past Thursday

    January 16, 2014. It has officially been longer than one full calendar year since I have gotten out of the house to see a friend or do anything that isn't school related. If you are wondering why this is, it's simply because of my overbearing mother. Every time I want to go...

    I don't get out very often out of choice. Not necessarily because I don't want to be out, but because I prefer to have a reason to be out. And honestly, I rarely have reason to go anywhere beyond school, work, the library, the gym, and to do necessary shopping and meet necessary...

    Don't get me wrong, I go to work every day like a good girl. But I'm just not motivated to do much else. I realize how annoying people are the second I get out of the house. Within seconds, I've probably stepped in gum, or dog poop (or worse). People drive like jackasses, so once...

    But I Would Like To

    I used to be a very social, outgoing, fun person in high school.  After graduation everyone drifted apart and far away from me, so I don't have any friends.  I've tried to reach out to people in college, but the personalities and likes/dislikes just weren't clicking.  So, fast...

    Boring Life

    When I was younger, I wasn't really allowed to hang out with my friends the way most teens were. That has made a huge impact on how I don't go out to do much now. I just stay at home, watch tv or do things on the computer. I have a really boring life that needs to change!
