    To My Ex

    Sorry hon, it's not all about you, I have needs too and I'm gonna do them by myself because I was raised by all females and that's what I was taught to do. plus you just sat around being depressed and that doesn't take care of me.

    First kiss? Ha I haven't even had my first crush let alone my first kiss. I am 17, it's too young to be worrying about relationships or at least too young to be obsessing over it.
