    Ex Catholic

    I'm an ex-sangiuated catholic. I feel my guilt comes from my childhood and my mum's and dad's religious views. I'm spiritual and prefer eastern spirituality. Guilt the gift that always gives lol

    I Love The People I Work For

    but what my _own kind_ has done to me has ripped me into shards _a while ago_. And I bet those idiots are so stupid they have no idea why I'd be angry at them... If I knew that the only people who actually had anything in common with me were such psychopaths I'd simply have...
