    I Have No Rights

    Okay...I have no place in my house (oh...I'm sorry...my parent's house)! My mom is always making it clear that it's her and my dad's house, and not mine since I don't pay the bills. I just moved back home at the end of June and have pretty much hated it ever since! I know this...

    My mom thinks I'm a *****.

    Yippee. She basically said as long as I'm talking to guys I am setting a slutty example for my sister. Oh and all I do is talk to guys and eat. Better quit doing that too. I seriously need to get out of here

    First off, I am not an attention seeking kid.

    I don't hate living with my parents it's just annoying sometimes. I want to have friends over when I want to. Be able to walk around naked if I want ( probably wouldn't). I just want to have the freedom to go and come as I please without the questions or intrusions.
