    Society Seems Broken...

    I like to watch people and observe how they interact, behave, talk, and think.  Sometimes I think the world is full of crazy people and wonder...What really is normal?  You have people who go into schools and businesses and kill everybody because they lost a job or someone hurt...

    Real Friends Say I Love You

    What did I do wrong? I'm just a pretty simple

    down to earth girl. My mom and dad have always taught me to have integrity and say what I mean and mean what I say. They taught me to be kind to other people and respect people's choices and decisions even if they don't work for me or if I don't believe in them. They taught me...

    Sometimes, I sit and think to myself about

    when we get older. We are supposed to mature and be wiser. We should excel wisdom and common sense. I'd have to say, I disagree. The people that I work with are or must be the exception to getting older. People become more immature than I've ever seen. They are bitchy. They...

    People only care about one thing, and that's material. For that we'll almost do anything just to get it. Selling our soul, or engaging in the system. People are to scared to stand up. We'd rather be lead then lead ourselves. And for that look where we are as a society. I...
