    This Year

    I thought that I was going to make it through this year without any sort of scars, but it turns out that it's easier said than done. It's only been about three days of school and already I'm getting hate email and being flicked off as I walk to class. Not to mention, I'm stressed...

    I Miss Me

    I miss who I was. I was funny, and people genuinely liked my company. After a year away from home, I came back to find that everything was different. My family was falling apart, I didn't have any friends and I didn't have anything to do. The people I used to associate myself...
