Hi everyone. I came here so that I could publish writings and thoughts anonymously so I can avoid the inevitable backlash that follows my writings from friends and family. I am 18 years old, in college, and tend to be quite dark in my moods, thoughts, and especially in my writing. My greatest inspirations are an odd mix, from Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, and Charles Dickens, to John Wayne, to Johnny Cash, and a myriad of other non-sequiter examples. I am immensely socially awkward, a flaw I've only recently seen in its entirety, but am a bit of a hopeless romantic nonetheless. Those two don't mix, so my love life has been a crap chute.
