    A lot of people my age (16) already party like

    animals and they drink. Some smoke. They have dated and had their first kiss. Some of them have even had their first time ( I think you know what I mean). I haven't done any of these things and sometimes I feel out of place. Someone help me please.

    Society Feels So Corrupt.. Why Do People Live Like This?

    Society feels so wrong. Trying so hard to get that good job, so you can have the nice house or the nice car. People let the things they own control them. What is the point of life in our society? To get a job and feel like you have some sort of a purpose? I know some people can...

    Pressured By Society

    It drives me crazy, sometimes, the things that modern society finds so important -  looks, status, possessions...and even though you don't want to care, society presses its values on you and measures you by those values every time you step out the door.
