    *sigh*.. Yeaa

    Sometimes it ticks me off how people just don't get that I don't like being liked so much. I'm just very outwardly happy and inwardly upset.. it's how I roll. People need to realize that I'm not a nice person and liking means you're gonna get hurt.

    An addictive personality is a blessing

    and a curse. At times, it can help a person excel in their career, their education, or a hobby. However, if you get addicted to the wrong things, life may be a fast downward spiral.

    I'm not currently addicted to anything

    Why Am I Crying For Him Still?

    He does not deserve one more drop of my tears. He has changed. He has shifted his focus from me to himself. I am no longer his important person. He doesn't care if I am mad at him. When I see him in office, he has that angry look and talks to me in an angry tone of voice...
