    When I was 14 I went to Turks

    and Caicos for spring break with 3 of my friends. We were freshman at the time and met a couple junior boys from New York. That night we met up with them and they had bought us a handle of vodka. I had not eaten all day and started drinking a lot. My friend caught me and one of...

    This has always bothered me from the day

    that it happened. When I was 15 I was struggling really bad with depression and at one point it got to be too much... So then I was stupid enough to try to end it. I grabbed some pills from the bathroom mirror and took them. After realizing what I was doing I made myself throw...

    When I was 12 years old I met a guy through a

    online game. Let's say his name was Eric. Eric was 17 years old, programmer and he was very nice to me. By time we got closer and closer friends. One day he asked me if I had snapchat, snapchat wasn't that popular in this time so I told him I didn't have it. He told me to...

    Only if you knew some of the things I've done.

    Surely they never hurt anyone, but it doesn't mean they are something to be proud of. We all have skeletons in our closets that, if seen, would greatly disappoint the people who love us.

    I had my 2nd exam of 9 today.

    It was Latin Poetry - Elegiac love poetry and Epic poetry. I had to learn 15 Horace Ode's off by heart, 12 Catullus poems and Virgil's Aeneid Book 4 Lines 1-552 and memorise the analysis for every single one of them. Since I was running out of time in the run up to the exam, I...

    My Biggest Regret

    Just before my 10th birthday, I hung out with my two closest friends. One was my best friend and we had done everything together, since I moved there. We were even neighbors and could walk in and out of each other’s front door at any hour of the day. The other was kind of an...

    Drugs was the major thing I'm ashamed of.

    Almost anything you can think of, I've done it. It all started with my douchebag uncle who let me try meth when I was only 13 and ended with my weird addiction to Morphine. It's been a rough ride, but I'm 8 months clean and never been happier.

    My Take.

    i shared this already as a comment, but it really sums up how i feel on this issue, so i figured i'd make it my story. if you've never made mistakes then clearly you've been living your life too tentatively. and if you can't acknowledge that you've made mistakes then your head...

    Very long story, short

    Everybody has done things they aren't proud of.

    Personally though I wouldn't change my past experiences because they have shaped me into who I am today. They have taught me what not to do and I have learned from them. I imagine that is just a part of growing up :)

    Every. Single. Day. I am a person who has hurt many people simply out of ignorance. I try every day to learn from these mistakes, but sometimes it is just too overwhelming, all this unintentional hurt I've caused.

    Yeah. But the past is the past,

    and what's done with is done with. Don't forget about the past, but learn from it. The past is what made you into who you're today. Focus on who you are today, and worry about who you want to be in the future.
