    I'm pretty shy and when I was younger I didn't

    In The Darkroom At High School

    LK was the yearbook photographer, and I was the Editor of the Yearbook senior year. I wasn't a total nerd, but I wasn't in the cool crowd either. She invited me after school to help her develop pictures in the darkroom; she had Farrah Fawcett type big hair, and she was lots of...

    Missed

    It saddens me to know, I don't take chances and just go for things. Lesson learned, "go hard or go home," I learned that from a rap song somewhere 0_o

    Before I start talking about this girl I think
