dumbley

I’m a pretty busy person.  Between school and work, I have very little free time to spend playing games, watching television, or going to the movies.  As a result, I don’t play through games as fast as most people, nor do I always catch shows or films when they are first aired or released.  Since I spend a lot of my time on the ...

They’re hiding their own insecurities by making you feel bad about yourself.”  Anyone who’s been bullied has heard something like this, usually in an attempt to cheer you up or make your feel better.

ImageHandler

I’ve always been kind of on the lazy side. I think it probably has to do with the fact that I was a really bright child, and picked up things very quickly (if only that had stuck with me as I aged). Unfortunately, I became way too used to this, and often fell into the trap of being way too lazy. If I wasn’t ...

Sometime during my high school years, I learned that some people don’t think that it’s alright for women to be intelligent.
