    I'm Such a Chicken

    I wish that I could tell people what I really thought/felt without having that sick feeling of being bashed or made to feel stupid/ignorant. I don't have a college education, I don't know big fancy words. Honestly, I know very little about a lot (if that makes sense). Maybe I'm...

    All pretenses aside, I miss a part of me

    A Great Life, That I Don'T Want

    My name is John Doe, and I was given an amazing life, a privelaged one. My parents together make 500+ a year, and are paying for my college life right now, but this isn't what I want. Someone else may have made more from this life, but my path isn't this. I will be a success, but...

    "Speak the Truth In Love"

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. I know people have said that a hundred times but it really is true. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Even strangers like here  on the net
