    I want to have somebody I can tell everything

    to. Without feeling bad, or making them feel bad... But I think I might be too much for anybody to handle.... I don't mean to be, I wish I was a normal girl sometimes. I want somebody to care for me unconditionally.

    Just Me

    I like to write and to draw. I express myself that way, but I cant express myself verbally. Sometimes it's like i don't think i don't have any opinions at all because i never say them out loud. I just go with the flow, and i'm not always happy about that.

    Expressing My Feelings

    Honestly I don't think I could be much worse at it. On the inside I'm racing with emotions, thoughts, and feelings, but none of this can penetrate the surface. I often get asked if I'm bored when I couldn't be further from boredom.

    Another reason why I believe in online friends.

    The Internet makes it so much easier to express myself. on the outside I'm pretty quiet and sometimes I seem stuck up. I'm honestly way more bubbly than I appear to people that know me. damn annoying.

    and I've been thinking a lot lately. It dawned on me that this just seems so pointless! I mean what's the point of writing is no one is living the words?? What's the point in drawing if no one is seeing the whole picture??? I mean it just seems like such a waste of time!!

    To English for the right words to string together the explain the tightness in my chest. To science to explain why and how. Even with my vast vocabulary, I am useless when it comes to trying to vocalize what I think or feel.
