    No Idea What To Do With My Life...

    I have just graduated from college with a Bachelor's in Science, majoring in Biology. My original plan was to become a geneticist before I knew how the real world worked. And now the economy sucks (luckily I do have a full-time job at the moment). And there's a lot of...

    Clueless

    I only know a few things for sure right now. I know I love God and I love my fiance. And I know I have to go to the doctor and take medications, but I know nothing else. All the things I thought I wanted to do seem unreal to me now. They don't make sense. Nothing has worked for a...

    I'm in my room but I don't know

    where I am. I'm in my mind but I don't know who I am. The mirror must be lying, this is a dream. I can't be me. I can't be the one living this life. I'm alright. A catch phrase for the ages. Parents hating their kids, kids forgetting they're kids, everyone's lost, we're all just...
