    I Don't Think It'll Ever Change.

    My mother told me the other day, after one of her drunken episodes, that my siblings will always think me as a child. It did bother me because I know that it's true, and no matter what I do, or try to do, they won't ever see me as a grown adult. Sure, they'll look at my age, and...

    I'm ready to move somewhere else.

    Where I live it's always hot which is bad for my health. I have Lupus and Hawaii is not good for anyone with this condition as it makes me photosensitive. I feel really sick all the time and I am sick and tired of it. I want to be somewhere I can at least feel better. Ever since...

    Getting real tired of the place I'm in now.

    This just isn't cutting it, and I'm starting to loose my mind I swear. So instead of playing the poor me why me game I'm gonna get up, and brush myself off. Made a promise to myself that from now on things are gonna be different.

    a shave (leaving some facial hair) not because I'm lazy but because I've been told a little on me look's good. Then I'm going off solo to the movies. What I'll see is not important. I just need to treat myself and stop this being stuck!!!
