    I'm Just Blah

    I feel empty. I feel alone. My moods fluxuate daily. I conform to fit in with the people I'm hanging out with. I feel dumb. I am dumb. I have no personality. When I was 16 years old, I witnessed my friend die from a horseback riding accident. I guess you can say I went though...

    Having schizoaffective disorder

    and a decade and a half of isolation next to no friends and no interest in things except having one crisis after another has caused my character to grow dull and boreing.

    Being There

    I always remember a quote from the actor Peter Sellers when he said, "I have absolutley no personality at all. I am a chameleon. When I am not playing a role, I am nobody." That, I guess, sums me up, playing a different role around different people, with no real, true personality...

    No Personal Opinion :(

    I'm a really quiet girl. When there's a group of people talking or discussing about something I never talk, I dont know if its because I'm very shy or because I have nothing to say; I fear I have no personal opinion about things. And whenever I have a strong opinion on something...
