    Are You Serious?!

    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...

    Small Town Minds. You know my swag not my story

    . I'm a snob because I have few friends, I walk too fast, and I'm an honor student. My ex-fiance abused me because we had an agressive relationship and I'm clumsy plus I bruise easily. I am a **** apparently but I'm not justifying that. I'm stupid because I model and I'm a...

    The True Meaning of The Word "Assume"

    Assuming is just THINKING you know. Knowing is KNOWING you know. That aside, you have heard the best definition of the word "assume", right? I was always told tht people who assume, only "make an *SS (out of) U (and) ME! The only issue I have with this...

    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 ***.

    You Do Not Know Me.

    Don't read a story by me and assume that you know me.  That is really ******* annoying.  Maybe, if you read all of my posts, then you know alot about me, because I don't hold back here.  But if you've only read one thing by me, or just a couple, do not tell me what...

    The "type" Factor.
