    excuse me, but **** happens.. doesn't mean it's my fault. I can go on ranting about this, but I think I'm done with EP and it's community.

    Me and my best friend are very close.

    And the guys at school assumed we were lesbians. Because they were athletes and we didn't want to **** them. *sigh*

    I absolutely hate it

    especially when I do.

    it is human nature to respond to situations. or people based on past experiences. But at times these actions are like assumptions. It is good to learn from the past, but look at the situation fully before acting or speaking. I try and sometimes fail to remember that not every...

    Shut Up!

    Most of the time, people that assume really need to keep their big mouths shut. I cannot stand people that make assumptions on things they hardly know about or about people they don't know at all. Get the facts first before you speak out of your ***.

    When I was working at an Animal Hospital, there was a young woman who really didn't like me...at all. She would start rumors, talk trash, etc. But since I was part-time it didn't really get to me until one day. There were a bunch of girls upfront and we were all chit-chatting and...
