    What Is Happening To Me?

    When i began to realize the world and the existence of myself, i had the crazy tendency to protest anything that my parents told me. And all the thing that my parents ever told me was: Try to study, get a good marks, go to college. I did all my parents' command but i hated...

    Safeness

    I am filled with total saddness because I had to give up everything I love to do in my life do to a stroke(6 months ago) and brain cancer (found out the other day). The stroke left me paralyzed on my right side and I could walk or talk. The doctor said that I may not be able to...

    Ok, to do this you have to meet specific

    requirements. Ok you can be white (Caucasian) it may just be harder to work with, but if your black you are in. If your Asian just stop reading now. Step one: Be black. Step 2: get chix step 3: **** chix. Step 4: Die happily.

    Age Hasn't Provided Much Clarity Of What To Do, Only What Not To Do....sigh.

    My Life Is Heading Nowhere!

    I Just Don't Know What To Do

    I'm a smart guy, of genius intelligence, in fact. I want to do so many things, but I just don't know where or how to start. I'm just lost, adrift in my own sea of indifference. I just don't know what to do.

    I'm not alone in this, but I'm one of those people who has a lot up in the air at the point where I feel like it "should" be settled. Two years ago my 10 year marriage failed and I came to the conclusion that I don't want to teach high school anymore. I keep flopping around...
