    I'm so self conscious

    and can be really insecure at times! It doesn't help that I have low self esteem and lack of confident so I don't believe in myself or accept myself... I am obsess about what other people think of me which isn't good at all because I should accept who I am and of course there...

    Not-So-Girly

    I am not really a girly type. I'm more of a nerd. No not the classic nerd but the nerd who wants to sit in front of her laptop studying programming languages. That's me. I just got my glasses yesterday which makes me look like a real nerd now. It so happens that at school...

    Trying

    I want to do it and I am getting better. I grew up mostly being the person who was always away from others (it lead to problems at school, but that's another story) and I am sick of being alone. I have been getting out, but still find myself worrying what is thought of me.

    Are They Thinking What I'm Thinking?

    My life is basically the same as it was ten years ago. I haven't advanced at all, haven't matured at all really. I'm not saying I'm immature, I'm just not living the life one would expect of a 33 year old. A few years ago, while I worried about what people would think of me...

    Don't cheat, break up. Why do people think this is okay? No one wants to get cheated on. Grow up.
