    Why We Make The Choices We Do.

    I find it interesting that  there are some people who make bad choices knowing that they are negative consequences that follow. Wouldn't you think that you should weigh your options before you decide to make that choice. For example: Stealing from the bank or a store. Don't you...

    Why would someone regularly complain

    that you don't contact/open up to them enough, but whenever you send them something you would think that they would find funny or would just like for some reason, they immediately tell you they're busy? And then sometime later when having a conversation they again complain that...

    Who The Hell Am I?

      I want to understand human behavior. I think, as a rule, that we all want to understand .  I believe, in order to even scratch the surface, I have to at least try and understand myself.  I can only see through my own eyes, and I know that my sight is...

    I feel like when I really think about it I do.

    ... I understand many people more than they do themselves, but I can't connect with people. It's like my beliefs and actions are too bad for some and too good for others. Like with my bf I feel too good (like goodie two shoes), then I go to school (a private college) and I feel...

    I don't understand why some people make really

    bad decisions! Like things that they damn well know is wrong and endangers their life or others around them. Why would someone want to mess up their life like that?!? I guess they just don't care or think about it, but damn how stupid can some people be!

    So I get there are lots of crazy fantasies

    and sometimes I can see how people think that way. But animals? Really? That's bizarre. I don't get that at all. Nothing is attractive in that way about a dog or horse. Idk I'm just confused about it after reading on the news about a man getting it with a chicken. My mind...
