    Someone Always Gets Hurt

    I am too damn old and tired to play games and be tested. I have gone to great lengths to be as transparent as possible. It takes a lot to get me angry with you, but if I do you should not take it lightly. I am no easy win, I can frickin promise you that!

    There are not many things which I can say really make me angry and disappointed in everyday life.  But being underestimated is one of the few. I don't expect anyone to be clairvoyant ... to automatically know things about you without being told.  But I do dislike it...

    I really hate that people think I can't become

    something like a business owner or someone really successful. On of my cousins made a bet on whether or not I would give up on college when I had just started. I'm not one to just give up at all. Another thing is that last year before I graduated I went to prom. I guess a...

    Worst Thing People Can Tell Me Is, I Cant Do It...

    The worst mistake people have made with me, is telling me I cant do things.  Usually I go straight out and prove them wrong.  This has had me jumping off school roofs,  jumping 20 feet out of windows.  Climbing cliffs without safety gear.  Doing ridiculous things on...

    So Very Annoying

    My friends always underestimate my capabilites, making fun of how weak I am. If only they knew; I'm afraid to fight back because I don't want to hurt anyone. I'm not trying to sound high and mighty when I say that, I'm saying it because I'm litterally scared. I don't want to...
