    I dropped out of college. I don’t give a shit anymore. I am going to be like those guys from “Easy Rider” and live my life on the road.

    I’m sorry. I only said it because I don’t know how to communicate with other people. I am only reaching for a reaction from other people regardless of the context. I just wanted to have someone to talk to.

    Deep down inside I just want to hold hands with somebody but I don’t know how. I really love people. I am actually capable of be a nice person. I just want to be loved. I’m just really lonely. I am sorry.

    I’m sure if we met in person, we could be friends.

    As one human being to another, I love you.
