    I have realized of late,

    my memories of my childhood is slipping. I guess my brain is considering it a trauma, because it's hard to recall anything about me growing up. Guess the violence and being bullied is giving me a sort of amnesia. I've been thinking, it might be for the best, because hell, it...
