    At Least That's What I've Learned

    Good or bad, this is just the start, this will pass too. Sometimes you will eat your words, break your promises and just laugh at the irony of things. You start believing in different things, you break down, build anew, experience that you can live without a lot of stuff, learn...

    Being a person primarily closed off from other

    people (by choice earlier in life), I never developed the skills that everyone else around me has, and have success in things I want. Now, I have come across another event in my life that teaches me this. I will get the lesson this time. I'm writing this message for all...

    The Art Of Feeling Better

    I decided to perform an experiment, see if it impacted my life at all...I decided to log out of Facebook AND turn off my cell phone for 72 hours. I went about my usual routines, school, grocery shopping, etc. Just with no outside influences. It was tough, but I did it. And now...
