    Over & Out

    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...

    Nothing Is Ever Easy For Me

    All the lessons I learn have been the hard way.  And the kicker is, when I try to share my experinces with others, I just get the "what do you know?" response.  It is like I'm Cassandra and no one beleives what I tell them even though it is true.  Oh well...
