    Specially My Husband

    He is so demanding, yesterday I told him I am tired of all his orders and bossiness, and I don't have to do any of the things I am doing, and if I am doing anything it's my choice. He said I know, but if you do anything it has to be my way!

    The Jokes On Me

    I dread holidays because it means going back home, or worse, them coming to visit. Sure, I love my family. I just can't get over how inconsiderate and hurtful they are. From the moment my parents step foot into my apartment, it begins. "Oh, you live like a polar bear - it's so...
