    Place I Feel Safe

    It's like my safe zone. Nobody can cross it. My personal space, where I can relax, be myself, reflect over things. You know, just to be alone, I don't have to worry about things until morning or when I have to leave my room. Normally, on a good day, I'll isolate myself in my room...

    *sighs*

    Most of the time i'm in my room. I'm usually on the computer looking up stuff. Sure i could be outside but i would only go walking or something. I can't play sports with my friends because i'm not good at it. I wish i could just get out of my room some more and do more things

    It'S Small But It'S Mine

    ..that's what he said? Anyway, my room. I have my books, my tv, my computers (three of them, really don't know how that happened) my decor, my CLOTHES, and most importantly, my bed. MY BED. It's not the best bed, I've had better- I have a king size bed in the basement that won't...

    Loneliness Is Killing Me...

    I have no friends from learning to be quiet and isolate myself from years of bullying, which was for simply being too quiet in the first place..I still live in isolation now even at 22, and I literally go week after week of pretty much not speaking at all. I don't know how to...

    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...

    My Favourite Place In The World....

    Is my bedroom. I just love isolation. Being in my room alone, to me, is so calm and relaxing; like I can get away from everything. Then my sister spoils it all.... Sigh. Usually I just re-read books that I've read about a zillion times or I listen to my ipod. Before ...

    Girls try talk to me, boys try to flirt with me, but I push them away. Its not even intentional, more like an involuntary, shut down reflex of sorts.
