There are some things in this world that are just not meant to be.

You my friend, are one of those things.

I was born in Philadelphia, Pa at 7 am on April 29, 1984. Until I was six, we lived in Philly. Then, my parents got a bug up their asses and moved my brother and I to the litle rinky dink town of Hamlet. A place that's only claim to real fame is that John Coltrane was born and raised here.
When I was 13, my mother and father split up for the third time. My brother already lived in Philly with my aunt and uncle. So, my mom moved me to Philly. I personally regard this experience as one of the greatest of my life. I've alway loved city. But anyway, we lived there with my uncle until about three months after I turned 14. My mother sent me back to NC to live with my father. She came back a few months later. But my heart didn't leave Philly until I was 18.
I fell in love with a man by the name of Wesley Drake when I was just 15 years of age. He had just turned 22 at the time. I've never been in love like that and I never will be again. So there's my first love.
I was a huge failure in high school as a teenager. I honestly didn't care whether I succeeded or not because I didn't see the point if I wasn't in Philadelphia. I skipped, ran away from home, etc.
When I was 17, I thought I was in love with my best friend, Jason. So, when he asked me to go to Denver with him when I was 18, I said yes. I dropped out of high school my senior year and we moved in together for five months. That was my first huge eye-opener experience of being on my own.
When I came home, I had an idea of what I wanted to do with my life in terms of professionalism and career. So, I went to school and got my GED. I graduated with highest honors and the highest GED score recorded in the year of 2003. Something that made me think that maybe if I tried hard enough, I could actually acheive something with my life.
And that brings me to now. I've just now come to terms with the fact that even though Denver gave me an idea of what I wanted to do as a career, I learned nothing from the relationship.
I need to take an interest in myself. I honestly have always thought that you got up in the morning, got dressed in a halfway decent outfit, ran a brush thru your head and applied deodorant and that was the basic jist. When you got home at night, you took a bath and went to bed. Needless to say, I don't think of myself as attractive.
But, I'm going to change that.
