    If Only I Could Google It

    I like knowing. My imagination runs wild sometimes for the worst. I may over thing things sometimes.. it would just be a lot better if we could just google the way someone feels about us.

    I don't let myself do the things I love because I'm so scared of what people think of me. I love to sing, and act. I'm pretty good but I get so scared in front of people wondering what they think that I always psyche myself out... if I just knew they thought I was good, I could...
