    Do you ever feel like everything you do isn't

    sufficient? Like you will never be perfect, or even close to it. You will never make someone happy at all times, never be pretty enough, and never smart enough. There will always be someone better than you. And you're just waiting for your friends, family, and boyfriend to...

    Growing Up Sucks.

    No one ever tells you how hard growing up is. Having three jobs is stressful, add on the dramas that come at every work place and the extra things that you have to do for each job and that equals no time to do anything and being tired all day every day. But somehow, there's...
