    I Am Friendless

    in a world that values how many friends you have.  I find that with friends comes a lot of drama and I like to live simply.  I've always thought that being on a deserted island would be wonderful.  I do get lonely at times and would like to find that one person that I could...

    Good Pair Of Shoes

    I figure that finding your soulmate or the love of your life is like finding a great pair of shoes. I've been looking for a good pair of shoes since May. I met Robert Herjevec from Dragons Den and Shark Tank at a school reunion in May. I wore a 6 year old suit that just didn't...
