    I am, and that Is just the way it is.

    Never been one to have friends, make fake friends or buy buddies.   Some have tried to understand me and have been on the sidelines for decades, but I just am not able to pretend to care about the latest pop culture gossip or the famiiy woes...

    Looking For A Change

    I have always felt I am a bit of a loner and a natural introverse, that's a fact. During the elementary and middle school I was very embarrassed in talking to girls, while it was easy to go on well with boys, thanks to football (I'm from Italy and almost every boy plays football...

    Skydiving Is Insanely Fun

    Every person belongs to a group, be it an age group, a gender group or a base ball team. It gives comfort and a somewhat misleading feeling of safety. In return every group has its membership fee. The fee limits the access. Being convinced that the ultimate...

    Lone Wolf

    As much as I wish that I had friends, I prefer to hang out alone. I get lonely sometimes and wish I had people that I could talk to, but hate the process of getting to know people. Awkwardness is public enemy number 1. The meeting stages always feature awkward pauses, which are...
