First off, I'm 20 years old from Oceanside, CA. I'm always busy with work and school, so I don't really have much time to myself. And as I get older, I begin to realize that I never was able to be a kid. Anyway... I've registered on here because for one of my classes (Human Relations), I have to conduct a study. I've been assigned a general topic of self-destruction and harm. With a few clicks on Google, I found myself here. This area is pretty new to me. When I was 17, I dated a girl that would cut herself, but I found that if I was around her and comforted her through her problems, she would stop and find other ways to vent her anger and frustrations. ...So enough rambling by me!
