    Everyday

    This thought runs through my head almost everyday. The idea that trading places with someone else just seems so tempting. I mean to see life on a different scale. To become the person you've always wanted to become. That to me is the whole reason why I'd want to be someone else...

    Feel Bad Right Now

    Why do people insult me? Even at this website, I have gotten bad responses by some and it always makes me feel bad. People tell me I made stupid mistakes or just criticize me (directly or indirectly). Whenever this happens, I am always tempted to give up and quit.
