    Existencial Philosophy Is Tricky

    There's this famous quote: Cogito ergo sum - I think, therefore I am. (Descartes) That's what we've been told in school. And when I was younger, I thought, that adults must have the right answers, since they're allowed to tell me what I have to do. They are adults, after all...

    Well, Here'S Just Something I Wrote...

    Everything About You Is Perfect And I just feel as if you're perfect for me. Like two peas in a pod. Everything I say about you to everyone else is good things. You have a side to you that everyone thinks is no good, but I think of it as a good thing. Even though I know it's...

    The Trap Of Overthinking

    I overthink EVERYTHING. Analyze every conversation, and sometimes have even been guilty of laying in bed at night creating conversations in my head that will most likely never occur in real life. No one really sees that side of me. On the face of it, I'm an easy going, care free...

    It's Not A Good Idea.

    I was the one that walked away. I was tired of remembering those rumors about both me and you. It started with the ones about me, with those 13 castmates of yours saying I cheated on you with one of my best friends. I never did that. And I told you so. You said you would fight...
