    "I Wish I Had Better Friends"

    I used to feel guilty for saying it, but I can't live in denial with the way others really make me feel, or be the only one suffering while they are living their lives blissfully and arrogantly happy. There are only 2 people in my life I can think of at this moment who have shown...

    My Friends Are Lame.

    Saying this makes me feel like a total jerk, but my friends are really boring. I don't know how I ended up with them. All they ever want to do is read and do homework and talk about books and church. I have no one else and I feel really alone. I'm a very fun-loving person, but...
