    I Don't Know.

    When Will I Know?

    I've been drifting aimlessly for years, not really taking a clear path in life. I've gone from dead-end job to dead-end job, just enough to get by to pay the bills and keep food in the house. I don't know what I want to do or what I really want to be. Sometimes I feel so lazy I...

    Has Anyone Found My Road Map?

    I'm 29 years old and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing with my life or where I am going. You know that old Robert Frost poem A Road not Taken? Well I have constantly taken the road less traveled (not so much anymore) and every time I have to say it hasn't really made any...

    If I said I hated my life it'd be an under statement. After having all that I've ever wanted out of life twice & losing it all I'm pretty sure that there is no god or he hates me.
