    I'm 47 years old.  And in those years I've done things that I swore I would never do.  I would see my friends get drunk then hit on any guy.  I judged them.  Then later, I did the same thing.  I can't take it back, but I can learn from it.  Like don...

    Things I Said I'D Never Do

    I remember when I was younger and even till today, I hear about struggles and deaths of people by the hands of those they love. I swore I'd never get attached to anyone, I'd never get close enough to another that I would call it love.  But I did.  I also promised myself I...

    Betrayal

    I don't know how a person can betray someone that they care about and love so much. My best friend whom I met in 6th grade is no longer in my life because of me. (I'm 24 now and she's 25). I feel so stupid about it because we fought on my birthday after the club. I...

    Don't Be a Sissy

    I have been doing a brazilan on and off for a few years don't find it hard to do.  When I was younger I shaved and it was itchy when it grew back in.  Frankly I find a brazilan exciting and it feels great after you have had it done for a day. Go ahead try it!

    What My Mum Said to Me

    When my children were born, I swore to myself that I would never say things to them that my mum always said to me. Now that they're older, I've lost count of the times that I've told them too: 'Lift you're feet up when you're walking' 'Stop scuffing you're shoes!'
