    I'M FEELING LOST ... The train is hitting 300

    but who cares. in a world that is so overexposed, it's important to maintain your mystery. to whoever is reading this. you are not a brochure for other visual needs. you are a novel with depth in its diction. be the chapter book someone wants to read, and continuing reading. who...

    Sometimes, being a writer can cause me to

    seriously lose myself. It can be good, but also devastating. All of us have hidden inside of ourselves a person we long to be, whether we emulate someone else who seems to fit our delusion of perfection, or an "ideal" version our parents wanted us to be. I honestly think that...

    because I don't know the real me. Even in my 30s I find that things I thought were true about me aren't... They were things I wanted to be true about me. Most of my social life is just an act. Because of this I don't really know what I am like or if people would really like me...

    I feel like no one really sees me.

    They see parts of me but they never really take a close enough look to see the whole me. But I guess that's to be expected since I discover new things about myself all the time. So how can someone else see all of me when even I can't.
