    My Mum

    A Time To Transform Into A Woman.

    After 26 years you'd think I was ready. But something is holding me back and I don't know what. I don't know why. I feel left behind in my generation. I don't feel like I am where I am supposed to be mentally, physically, or spiritually. Is it that I am afraid of change? Is it...

    Grow Up

    I get money once a semester from my college and I always spend it a good amount on games. Being Broke with no money and spending it on unimportant things seem really stupid when I think about but it's really the only thing I love. I need to find a balance fast .

    On some levels I'm mature

    What? The World Doesn't Revolve Around Me? Why Not?

    ok the title says the most important part. I guess as the last of 3 kids i got used to being the center of attention. i think that may have changed when we moved out into the country - my big sister lost all of her friends and had a lot of other issues that were never resolved...
