    I have a problem and I don't know what to do.

    I work a crappy retail job at a toy store and I'm going back to college in a few weeks. My manager isn't willing to work around my school hours and expects me to be ready at his beck and call (which I will not do). My education is way more important than this job and I plan on...

    Its not a major problem.

    Im not sure if some people will qualify it as a problem. But i consider it a problem. When ever i cuddle up with something i have a habit of nuzzling it. Im sure its natural but im afraid that if i cuddle up with a girl i like it will scare her away.

    Yep. I have a problem.

    It seems like no one understands. I used to be able to read fast, flying through pages while still getting all the information in my head. I don't know what happened, but now I can't. I have to say the words in my head in order to make sense of them and I read really slow. It's...

    Road Acrimony

    Rage is such an ugly word. I refuse to resort to it. What I feel is more a sense of acrimony towards my fellow drivers than it is full blown rage. I just like to imagine the car in front of me driving off the end of a cliff, gently cascading down the grassy slope into a marshy...

    Do you ever feel like you never fitted in?

    Like you could be in a room full of people yet your so alone? Like you have no connection with the world, that you're cut off from the world but people around me don't even understand what I'm feeling so they pay no attention and don't care

    I am so deprived of genuine attention
