Also, don't be the cool girl here - I wasted a lot of my youth being all "oh, yes, you can say mean worm's-eye-view things about me because after all they are true" and looking back it just ate away at me and reinforced my own bad feelings.... [more]

why do I have strains of Pulp going through my head? "you could call your dad and he'd stop it all" I don't know, since this dude doesn't seem to have contact with his family. Admittedly, a young, handsome white guy without... [more]

I'm a highschool dropout. After bumming around my hometown for a few years, I got my GED and went off to college. My parents didn't have any money, and even if they had, they wouldn't have given it to me. So I chose a state school and a practical... [more]
