    what a thing to wish for! Sure wish my life was different though. When I graduated from high school there was a school organized trip to Europe but my parents decided no for me as I was still age 17 and only 4"11. So I spent the summer at home in the sun and grew an inch...

    Although it is the childfree

    I don't really have much to say about it.

    It's pretty simple - The very few moments of pleasant experiences don't make the 8 decades or so of awkward and painful struggling worth it. But it's the only game in town right? Life is a nightmare and then you wake up in hell

    I am a failure that is not good at anything.

    My family don't like me and people tend to avoid me. I fail at even the easiest of things. I used to think that everyone can be useful in life...until I finally acknowledged the pointless person that I am.
