    Inhale, Exhale.

    Well I am addicted to getting high. I am addicted because I am afraid to live in the real world. Somehow it always seems to **** me in the face everytime I go out there. I lost my job, got my first ticket I can't even pay and I can't **** a clean drug test to save my life. I...

    Obsession With The Idea Of Escape

    I'm sick. I'm sick of the world around me. Every day I see something in the media (in some form) that causes me pain. Every second of alone time I get with my mind is spent thinking of ways in which things could be different to how they are. I'm not happy with anything as it is...

    I Need...

    I can sing well, dance well, run in heels and learn instruments quickly. I can sleep completely comfortably on a hard surface and fold T-shirts with one hand, cook anything that you can think of and touch my feet to the top of my head. These are some of my talents. Random...
