    It'S Small But It'S Mine

    My Song Ends The Same

    When I come home every day from a long day in classes, and everything else, I go to my room or the den in my house and seclude myself there as I watch TV or look on the ipad. This describes everyday for me for my life now. I've never really been invited anywhere and when I do, I...

    I spend a lot of time in my room.

    I feel really safe here. I hate going out because I'm afraid people will judge me. It's more comfy to stay at home at watch a movie or read a book than go out and struggle with comments, looks, etc. The only places I'm going are supermarkets and university.

    So I'm pretty sure that I've only hung out with

    two different friends this summer. One of them only once, and the other twice. That's it, for the last 3 months. Other than that it's either been family, or I've just been in my bedroom. Well I suppose I felt like I didn't have any friends anymore, so I decided to message a...

    sends me to my room and I'm like... "That's where I'd rather be so thanks" Nothing really to do outside of my room anyways so what's the point of coming out? XD
