    It Gets Me In Trouble

    I really don't think sometimes, especially if I am nervous. I then get worried after I have said something stupid because I am worried the person I was talking to got really offended or just found it to be very bizarre, and then I get even more nervous around that person, and I'm...

    Usually the Best Stuff

    When a friend or someone in need talks or emails me and I get back in contact with them I usually don't think before I speak. And that is when I seem to resonate with them better. Then my thoughts, feelings and opinions don't cloud what I tell them. And being that my censor...
