    Very Much So.....

    I write about this a lot in my stories but my personality is to blame. I am kind, thoughtful, sensitive and get described as sweet. I am also quite shy and not good at standing up for myself. Lately, my 18 year old sister attempted suicide. My parents are in absolute denial over...

    My Husband

    My husband takes me for granted. I pay all the bills. I buy everything for the house. I pay for his phone. He gets everything he asks for. Even though I go lacking for clothes and the things I need because i can't afford to do anything after the bills. He always talks about how...

    Makes Me Mad!

    I think it's horrible how some people take you for granted, you won't always be here!! Grrr....they make me furious when they think they can take me for granted. I then have to show them that they shouldn't. No threats involved of course :)

    Grad School

    I finished my Master's degree with a 3.9 GPA yesterday and strangers were more excited than my own family. If it were my brother finishing his law degree my parents would be ecstatic...but who cares about a little 'ole Masters?
