    If Only I Knew Back Then

    Greener Pastures.

    I wasn't expecting the longest,most stable, relationship I have ever had (3 years) to end the way it did. She left me with all the bills and skipped out on rent. I have absolutely no other place to go, and as luck would have it, all of my friends are currently stuck in less than...

    More And More Lately

    Sometimes  I wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and just wonder "what happened?" Sometimes I'll stare into the mirror for 5, 10, or even 15 minutes. Sometimes I like the guy on the other side, sometimes I hate him, and sometimes I just feel sorry for him. But every...

    Maybe Things Would Be Better

    I would major in something else for a particular career and be in a serious relationship. I would be more willing to take risks and be something else. There is so much to say

    I could never gain any self respect

    because of the way I looked so I was stupid meaning I built up a really immature reputation for myself, that always seems to proceed me. Now every time I do something people always think of my reputation.
