  • Mar 10 2013: Basically, an outlet to express our thoughts in a way that people can value them and to be part of a community of like-minded (brilliant-minded) individuals. Society is like a jail to me: I want to break free, but I am shackled to it because I am too young and with no opportunities at hand. I don't think anyone will bail me out; I just hope that time will liberate me from my sufferings. I want to grow up. (Ranting is rather cathartic)
