    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...

    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...

    Speaking Without Being Put Down

    I have always had issues with speaking my mind. It took me long enough to figure out why I am that way. Growing up I was always told I was stupid so I guess I felt that anything and everything I did was stupid. I'm still a little on the shy side when it comes to saying what is on...
