    I'm Not Good Enough

    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.

    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...

    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...

    No one knows me so no one would care, maybe except for the poor guy who has to clean the mess my dead body would make. He would have some unkind thoughts about me.
