    And Everybody.

    There are so many things that I cannot get rid of because I am too attached to them.  However, I refuse to end up like the people on "Hoarders", so I will get rid of these things in time.  First, I gotta start with all these...

    And Thats Why They Run...

    I cant help but just claim everything to be mine. And that's why boys don't stay around long. I'm obsessive and I cant stop myself from bothering them. Until its too late and they wont talk to me at all. Don't know when Ill learn my lesson.
