    I Want To Close The Reality For A While.

    Today I feel like I want to erase every thing in my mind for a while... It is happening so fast, I can't even catch up. Every person that is close to me misunderstand every action that I do.. Where in fact I am just being myself. They always think bad about me even though I am...

    In My Own Little World

    On some days I just feel like shutting out the world and being alone. Some times life gets a little too much for me and I just need to be alone with my thoughts and a 12-pack of beer, and of course some good music to space out to when being alone. As I get older I see myself...
