    So I thought he liked me,

    then he met her, stopped giving me attention, messaging me and spending his time talking to me. I thought we had something. We did, right? Or what? Was I just someone who was there? Like a rebound? I'm forever being the "third wheel" or the "ugly best friend".

    I hate how I can't control my moods. One second I'm the happiest person ever the next second I want to die. And there's never really specific reasons I get into these moods -.-

    At the moment, 3rd wheel seems to have a hold on me. I wish it would let go. Sometimes its fingers just brush me, but I always know it's there. Maybe I need new friends.

    I guess I just feel lonely. Friends are great, but there's always something missing. The human condition, I suppose. Always so restless.
