    Near Miss

    It's an elementary precaution - look both ways before crossing the street. My sarcastic pleadings for an unusual, news-making death - in a bout I recall the old addage, "Be careful what you wish for." Despite not really wishing for it, I nearly got it. I was walking in...

    Ashamed

    I held a double standard with someone I loved, playing games with him to ensure he truly cared about me. I am disgusted with myself. I presented myself as more witty and smart than I actually am, so he fell in love with a fraud.

    Never borrow money from a loved one.

    Or even a 'liked'one Never lend a loved or liked one money. It gets messy, it gets terrible and it gets catty. It's bad. But if I ask for money, it'd be nice if you won't miss it. Because I'm bad at paying back. Hello, my name is Sam and I'm a borrowholic. I've been...

    Over & Out

    Apparently the most painful lessons are the most difficult for me to accept. I don't want to see what I don't want to believe Even I can't ignore what is directly in front of me. This is a mistake I will never make again.
