    Cut

    I'm a cutter. Nobody knows except for a few of my friends. I will never tell anyone why. It has come natural to me now. I'm at my cousins house right now...and it sucks. I really don't like going in public with them because they are both really skinny, and i feel like the odd one...

    Guy Secret #1

    1. When you see a guy walking at school with a limp or hurt elbow/hand...hes most likely faking it. We do this stupid thing where we pretend to be injured in order to look badass! Every guy has done it at one point in their lives and for the most part it works!
