    I have a terrible temper at times.  Sometimes, I'm not even sure if I should be allowed in public because trying to control doesn't always work.

    Oh Man! Rage Against Everyone Around Me!

    I swear there are times I can't stand myself. And I take it out on the people around me. I can't stand my poor mom, I feel so bad for the way I speak to her sometimes. She avoids me, it's sad but I can understand why. There's this dark cloud that comes over me whenever she is...

    So I start sharing my opinion on this book,

    and my professor disliked what I said so now I'm being picked on by him all the time. Now we doing a play and he puts me in the side that goes with the ideas of book, and with super lazy people so I have to do all the damn work... Seriously it gets in my nerves.

    Explosive

    I have a fairly bad temper. I'm not sure if it's worse or better than others. I just know that it's not good to have it. I tend to bottle things up inside of me until something (whether big or small) puts me over the edge and I just freak. I lash out at anyone and everyone...

    Quite :)

    I do have a temper at times and often it is unexpected as the majority of my time I remain very calm, very laid back but when it rares its head, it tends to be very visible in its presence.  It does take quite a bit to raise it and when it is raised is accompanied by a loud...

    Well... This is so true,

    but only if "at times" means "all the time, except when I am asleep". Even then, I guess I can get pretty angry in my dreams. Lucky I have learned to keep my temper under control... mostly.

    Everyone has a temper.

    And everyone looses it sometimes. Having a bad temper means you loose your temper too easily or often- relatively. I need to work on not loosing my temper.
