    Maybe It's Just Me

    I have been in two serious relationships now and both times given myself totally to them. Put all my effort in and fought like hell to make them work when things have started to go wrong. I believe when you are in a relationship you have to give it everything you have otherwise...

    Physics

    In my last school I was struggling with physics. The way teacher taught us didn't quite fit me. I was constantly trying really hard just to get a C. Once after a lot of hard work I managed to get a B. I was so happy. I literally jumped for joy. It was one of the very few things...
