    Maybe Some Day...

    Yeah I Do.. Well With One Specific Person At Least

    I just don't understand it: I get such a good feeling when I'm around him, not just being turned on although there is plenty of that going on. Seriously, it's worth the drive, believe me! What is it about this guy that I find it so hard to talk to him? I normally don't have that...

    Need It

    I want to build up more self-confidence in myself. I no longer want to feel isolated or incapable. I need to not be concerned with appearance and with what others think. I hate feeling lonely. I must be myself.

    I Wanna Be A Big Dog

    Sometimes I feel like a shaking chihuahua facing the bulldog in this world. I want to overcome my timid side and at least fight like a Jack Russell if I can't be one of the big dogs.

    Well, today I need help.

    I am scared right now, as after school (in four hours) I am going to phone my crush (see my other questions, for details a bit), who lives 6 hrs away. I am going to ask him if he likes me and what happened the night he was told by my pesky little bro. I'm scared mostly because...
