    All my life, I have done nothing

    but work on myself because no one else will truly be able to do it for me, regardless of how insightful they are. I need to stop whining about how difficult it is and just show my strength. I haven't fought this hard to get through life, just to give up now.

    growing up (one day at a time) ^^

    I am relearning to love myself, the people that are in my life now and those who are yet to come my way. I am relearning to love life again no matter how much it went down the hill. I am relearning to laugh out loud, smile like the sun and cry sad and happy tears. I am...

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

    Ok. I'm 21, going to school, married, and i work as a cashier. But lately, I've been noticing at work that I'm being treated differently than other workers. I work with a lot of younger people (17 to 19) and i seem to get along pretty well with them. I can actually hold a...

    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 .

    My Mum

    I wish I knew how to be adult about stuff when it comes to my Mum. I just always have such a gut reaction when it comes to decisions she makes. The latest one is to sell the house where she lives with her husband of a year and move to an orchard.  The house where they are...
