    Doesn't Everyone?

    I really really do not like the way my life is going right now. At the present time the amount of "me" time I get is ZERO! The husband never leaves the house, he is ALWAYS home. I go out to work, but that is not "me" time since I have to be there and I have to be around other...

    Of Course I Do..

    All the time. I can't stay around other people for too long before I get emotionally and physically exhausted lol, they just wear me out. My 'me' time always consists of music (like Paramore, t.A.T.u., or Evanescence), drawing/painting, and alot of thinking. Often I'll turn my...
