A little bit of narcissism.

I know I've been neglecting this space we call a blog for quite a while,
but I have been writing in college. So have a read at this column for class. 

exoh darlings!  


Narcissism is basically self praise. We deny it, yet bask ourselves in its warmth. We claim to hate it yet hate to submit the facts. Everyone! Regardless of age, gender, height and whatever other humanly possible measurements you can think of.

So, how do we begin to realize we are indeed in our own little ways narcissist?
