    People Can Be So Shallow

    Who doesn't hate lies and gossip, right? (Unless you're the person who makes them -_-). I'm a sort-of invisible person in school. I'm the quiet girl sitting in the corner who makes the least fuss and is easily forgotten. So, there aren't many lies and gossip about me. Even if...

    Immature And Uncaring

    I can understand the concept behind the white lies that protect another feelings. I don't really know if I agree with it and I personally don't bother with them. I am learning tact, but I still won't lie for any reason. I can also understand the self-protecting and the for...

    Promises

    I don't understand how my friend wants me to be honest and open with them when its consistently proven that they will not keep a secret. I don't like gossip, I can't stand it in fact, whenever I hear people gossiping I tense up and I start to feel out of place.

    I Never Wanted To Be "in" In The First Place

    The bids flap their wings. The cheetahs run. But I can't even walk, to get away. Voices droning on and on about who said what and what so-and-so wore to the dance boom in my head. While they wish they could be asked out by some guy, I wish to flee from this dirt that is all they...

    Us Against The World... Or Vice Versa

    This is probably a normal experience, but it’s true. It’s a story that probably happened to every single person on that earth, or maybe not. But no matter what the answer is, it’s about gossip. It’s about lies that become rumors. And most importantly, it’s a problem...
