    I take care of myself and I take care of myself VERY well. Loneliness is there, but I have no baggage or drama in my life. I dedicate myself to the pursuit of knowledge.

    I have a lot of things to say about my 'family' but it all just hurts. The only thing that keeps on making me a prisoner here in their house is the fact that I have no money to go anywhere else, and it makes me furious and frustrated.
