    Maybe Not Complicated As Much As..........

    Running on a different frequency, and I really don't know if that makes sense either. My mind never seems to shut down, ever. I work on things in my dreams, I work on things when I am awake. It seems that the only time my mind is focused on something other than everything else...

    I Worry About Everything

    Unfortunately I have a tendency to worry about everything, even about things that do not concern me. I have been told off, and told to mind my own business, so I do now. Still, I can't help myself. I think too much.
