    Questioning...always Questioning

    I always seem to get confused and need to think long and hard about just what it is I enjoy. What type of activities am I really into? What do I want to do with my life? How would I describe my personality? What makes me me? How am I different from anyone else? What made him love...

    "Who are you?" is a question I dread being

    asked. How do I sum up my life and everything I stand for in the matter of seconds? In a few words? This question triggered kind of a phase, or an enlightenment, or whatever you want to call it. It made me feel like I needed to know more about myself. I needed to be able to...

    and instead of the standard marriage, job, kids thing that dropouts do, I hit the road. For the next ten years, I didn't stop anywhere for more than four months and that was only twice. Thirty days was about all I could take of any one place. In the first seven years of that...

    I Want To Know

    I don't know what I truly like. I don't know what i want to be. I don't know whether I'm good or bad. And I want to know. I feel like I'm having a personality crisis. Sometimes I get panic attacks when I think about who I am, because I don't know. And I want to. I don't even know...

    Um, What Was The Question Again?

    Who am I? Why do I do what I do? What made you not love me? Will I ever be all that dream? Am I adopted? All these things in a childlike tone, once asked, now answered in an adult voice.. bit by bit, day by day the new discovery is made..
