I guess I’m more like an insomniac. I can go on without you like an insomniac can trudge on ...

    There are a lot of things in this world that piss me off. I'm a very piss-off-able kind of person. One thing in particular that really just pushes my buttons are people who consciously try to be different for the sake of a label like "scene", "emo" (Yes, kids, I know. This t...

    You're my shining star Though you burned out long ago, You live in my heart. As I walk away And say, "I'm better than this" Something clicks: it's true. You need attention I need a boy with dark eyes But I'm shy, you're fair We're better off as ...

    “Don’t worry. Lots of kids have moved here and made new friends in the blink of an eye,” my new teacher tells me. “Oh, and don’t be concerned about your braces. Most everyone has them here.” Great. Even my new teacher thinks I’m a nerd, and he hasn’t even known me for five mi...
