    I've waisted a couple years being "fake",

    trying to be someone I'm not so that others would accept an appreciate me. That plan failed since i was acting like that because I didn't have any close friends and I thought it would help me gain some. It did nothing but make me feel schizophrenic and even more friendless...

    Ep is such a great venue to just be yourself!

    Why would we pretend to be anything else. Such a diverse assembly of unique and interesting people here.

    I’d like to think myself

    as normal, Just an ordinary girl. But I’m not into butterflies, I don’t do ballet twirls. I hate wearing make-up, No eye shadow or blush. I don’t have time in a morning, As I’m always in a rush. I don’t wear fancy underwear, Especially not a thong. For all the girls...

    Troubled Times

    When I was young I knew I was different. Unfortunately, in those years we had to fit into a mold so we could be slotted into a pigeon hole. This mold determined  many things including what games we were allowed to play, what friends we were allowed, how we were to act and many...

    I'm Just Me.

    I'm me, I'm just a girl that somehow still alive. One minute, one hour, one day, one week, one month, one year at a time. Be proud of who you are because a original is a lot better than a copy.

    So the final ties are cut between my ex husband

    and I. 20 yrs together and it's all down the drain. My heart still hurts. I still love and miss him. He broke my heart and I'm having a hard time moving on. I'm moving 1,500 miles away but don't think even that will heal me any faster. I'm still feeling devastated and it's been...

    I'm just me it's all I know how to be,

    I may seem boring to some, too quiet, emotional, timid, withdrawn,anti-social at times, and witty. I can't be what other people want me to be then I would be wouldn't be real.

    How Others Around You Can Change Who You Are.

    The most thing that I like about myself is that I care for others and making them happy and smile but you will always get those people who don't give a dam about you and what you do. Back when I was in year 7 it was the time to make new friends and get to know each other. I'm the...
