24x7clearances was a seller on Ebay who stole untold amounts of money from his unsuspecting online buyers. He created a multitude of self-promoting fake feedback and used ebay rules to eliminate the bad feedback he was due. What's funny is there is an VP of Engineering for CableTV of Canada) who also lives with 24x7clearances So, it looks like sonnyboy is a slacker, living with Daddy, who can't make a go of real life success like Dad, so he's taken to stealing from people on ebay. What is this society coming to? Personally identifiable information whacked -- please see site rules

I just wished that one day I could go away and never look back…. I am a college student who has everything going for me… but not really. I am a failure at pretty much everything I do. I try to please everyone by doing what it is they want me to do. I am tired of all the pressures of needing to please other people. I am tired of letting people down and doing things to them that make disappointed in, whether it is a relationship I had with my ex-boyfriend, current one, friends, and family.  I am not the person they think I am! I want to disappear and live in the darkness of what some may call my self-pity.   I know by reading this you will not fully understand and will think that my life could not be this bad…. but it is. I don’t think that a person’s problem has some kind of measurement on it to define how bad it is. I think a problem is a problem no matter how big or little it may to seem.  But until then; I will hide behind my fake smile that seems so genuine and the laughter that covers up all the pain I am feeling.

I hate the greyness and that depressing feeling that you can't get out of. You're stuck in a bubble that can see other people enjoying themselves and not being depressed but you can't get out of it. there is so much that I wish I was that I'm not. I seem to lack energy and motivation to keep going on a daily basis. Where others can just continue, I seem to give up so quickly. Why do I not seem to be able to keep going? I feel like I was not meant to exist in reality. I am not adjustable or amenable to life and its ways. I'm not very good at adapting to situations.

Ouch.  I moved here to be with him.  I have no job, and I can't get a car because I have no job, and he can't finance his money.  I am freaking out inside.  It seems like somedays I question whether I love him or not.  But it hurts, to think that we would ever be separated.  I wanted to get married a long time ago and he told me to wait a couple of years....nothing is happening and I don't want to leave but there is this little voice in the back of my head saying.  Let Go.  but something deeper is holding on.  Waiting.  He is getting better, he is working to take care of me.  I am so scared and beaten from the people hung around last.  We were fine until i started to be around these people...I feel like that little voice isn't mine, or isn't anything from me, but it keeps echoing on bad days like these.

Phone conversation this AM. Me:  I’d like to buy the baby a warm jacket because it’s really cold outside today.   Him::  Well, she has several jackets already.  What about the jean jacket that she wore yesterday?   Me:  Something warmer – it’s really cold outside.   Matt:  Well what about the fake suede jacket with the roses on it?   Me:  That’s not warm enough.  Something that zips up, is lined, has a hood, like a puffer jacket or something.   Matt:  What about that zip up sweater that I bought at Costco last week?   Me:  SHE NEEDS A WARM F---ing JACKET. I don't even feel like coming after work because I don't enjoy interacting with him.      Another complaint…   My parents bought our daughter a sandbox over the summer.  We finally went to purchase sand maybe about 4 months ago.  He didn’t like the sand because the texture wasn’t nice enough, and has been doing research to find the right kind of sanitized sand.  So as a result of his long investigation – she has had a sandbox that has been sitting out on the patio for approximately 7 months now that our daughter has been unable to use because he is so careful about every single decision that is made.  It just gets exhausting and interacting him is a challenge in patience that a Buddhist monk would find impossible.  We also have piles of new flooring lining the inside of our garage because he continue to find new pros and cons of not only the flooring that was purchased NINE months ago but other flooring options.  I wonder how long this search will continue until we find the perfect flooring.    Sometimes I feel like I am going to explode.

So there it is. 10 years in a loveless marriage and an acrimonious seperation. 2 years avoiding everything and get asked out by someone i had liked for ages. So all good for a very short while then bang thats gone. Not ready apparently but suspect something to do with her Ex. So i drift through another couple of relationships, never getting involved enough that it is likely to go anywhere - until its finished and then obsessing about what it was  (or wasn't). Never quite knowing why successive relationships fall apart at regular intervals despite apparently going along great although at least one and probably 2 had found someone else along the way. And then full circle and the girl at the begining is back - for about as long as the first time round. But so intense and full on and after a this time i'm feeling something completely new, but bang all over again and once again no bloody clue as to why. Lots of talk some about being scared but net result the same. She says she can't give me all i want- but doesn't appear to even know what that is and i think its all actually more about what i can't give or do or more to do with someone else being around, and god knows i have been right there before because in the mean time confirmed that she had spent some time with her Ex as i thought. Then the merry go round comes round again. Hook up with someone else too soon, go in too fast, she is lovely i guess she seems interested enough not to dump me after a month or whatever but i'm just hollow and seeing everything i ever hated in other people mirrored in everything i do. Works screwed, i'm up and down my mood is all over the place, can't do anything and have so much to do. And if she got in touch now i'd almost definately screw it up or tell her to take a running jump because i'm that mangled from it all. so here i am and will have to carefully let the latest know that i can't do it just so i can go back to avoiding it all- but always wonder if it will ever feel like that again? Somehow i doubt it.

The contract

advice
M, nice of you to read this. Seems to be a little matter you’d like to settle, a favor you want after you treated Me as you did. It is now obvious to Me with your wild ratings and changes in story that you will without thought or remorse say or do anything to have your way regardless who it might hurt.   Since this began in a M/s scenario I say we settle this in M/s terms seems very appropriate don’t you think? Now do not misunderstand My tone this is not a negotiation – so don’t even begin to try and bargain.  My proposal is as follows.   For the duration of the next 25 days you’re My s. This will be all inclusive; you are to be tracked and monitored every moment in sl using all means. There will only be contact with those that are on a prior approval list and all chat will be monitored. Don’t even ask about P/M he is not on the allowed contact list for the duration. Of course I know you will sneak some and if I catch you at any point this proposal will be null and void. During this period you will be My s and as such there will be no limits whatsoever.  One really can’t be a true s and have limits now can they?   In this role you will not complain, try to bargain or avoid this time or in any way be a displeasing s. If fact you WILL be highly enthused about each and every scenario I wish to entertain. If you do not live up to the terms of this proposal both in written word and spirit of M/s relationship this proposal will again be null and void.   Since you have proven yourself to be manipulative and untrustworthy what you want will only be released on that 25th day. If you through actions, words or attitude fail to live up to this proposal at any point up to and including the last moment of the last day the proposal will be voided. And don’t even try the “technical difficulties or large rl interruption to schedule” as they will at the very least extend the time on a day to day basis or render the proposal void.   It up to you to choose M, it can only be a yes or no.

The Soldiers You Don't Know You’re not going to read about Audie Murphy jumping onto a tank and manning a .50 caliber machine gun.  You’re not going to read about the exploits of a heroic band of 101st Airborne troops.  I’m certainly no Dick Winters. What you will read is an accurate, sometimes sad, sometimes inspiring, and sometimes disheartening tale of the soldiers the media doesn’t cover unless something bad happens.  I know you’ve read the stories.  The maintenance unit that went the wrong way, twice. The end result was Operation Iraqi Freedom’s first POW’s and the Jessica Lynch story. How about the transportation unit that rolled into a massive ambush near Baghdad International?  That incident resulted in the Global War on Terrorism’s only MIA soldier. Did you know that the same ambush resulting in Keith Maupin’s capture also produced the first Silver Medal for the Army Reserves in the Global War on Terrorism.  Of course you didn’t, you only hear the bad version of these stories.   The purpose of this is to educate those who know nothing about the soldiers that are part of the service support, non-combat, section of the Army.  It will also serve as an educational tool to those who serve without an Expert Infantry Badge on their chest or haven’t had the privilege of serving their country in a combat zone.  As such this will be written for two audiences.  Those who want to know what it’s like because they are curious and those who want to know what it’s like because they want to survive.   What I won’t be able to do is tell you every single story a unit of 150 soldiers or so can tell. That would be quite a read. You would hear stories of heroism, infighting, love, sexual conquests, alcohol and possible drug use, you name it. When you cram 150 people into a building for over a year, you’re going to have all kinds of interesting stories.  I don’t know them all, but I know the important ones. I was the unit’s company commander.  The reason I know most of the important stories is because it was my job to document all After Action Reviews (AAR’s).  We had one for every single mission and major event.  Eventually I passed the duty of writing the mission AAR’s to our Operations section but I still wrote the big ones for events that changed our lives.  The level of documentation I maintained was absurd and it allows me to recall events from 4 years ago.  I remember being contacted by the Inspector General) IG after our return home.  There were a myriad of complaints filed by soldiers who I suppose felt safe from retribution only after they got home.  I told the IG that instead of me answering their questions, why don’t I send them the memos I wrote pertaining to those troubled soldiers.  I ended up e-mailing 50 or so documents.  The next call I got from the IG went something like this, “We’ve never seen this much documentation. We don’t have any more questions.”  Somewhere in that special folder on my computer I even have a memorandum for record (MFR) about an accusation of someone in my command trying to kill me. An MFR is something of an affidavit. The accusation came to me by way of an NCO I trusted. I asked for something formal but the soldier who told this NCO wouldn’t go that far.  My only recourse was to document it in case it happened. I didn’t really care because my life wasn’t an issue at the top of my priority list.  Funny how our priorities change in an environment like this.   I suppose I should tell you a bit about myself and exactly how I ended up a company commander in Iraq. I still remember applying for various ROTC scholarships in high school.  I even remember filling them out on our kitchen table and especially remember my interview with Army ROTC. I certainly recall being told by my high school guidance counselor that I wouldn’t be able to get in to a certain college because of my grades. I showed him, I guess. I was accepted to that college and then chose another. After four years and two quarters of being a mediocre cadet and a less then mediocre student, I barely graduated in March 1996.  This graduation came after a few hard months of trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life.  I had just found out that I was going to be placed in the Army Reserves and the Transportation Corps.  This is unique because having been a scholarship cadet, active duty should have been mandatory. I still haven’t figured that one out. Not going active duty was more of a surprise then not getting my branch of choice, the Signal Corps. This was indeed my first major life challenge but who knew at that time it would pale in comparison to what I would face 8 years later.   Graduation and commissioning came and went and then I attended my officer basic course (OBC) at Ft. Eustis, VA. Ft. Eustis is the home of the Transportation Corps.  Here they indoctrinate you into the fraternity of transporters.  I was really gung ho coming out of there.  I was actually excited to be a transportation officer. It’s important to mention that something happened to me at OBC because everything seemed to click. OBC was an environment where I excelled.  I never dreamed I’d graduate in the top 5%. I returned home with this new found confidence and I continued to impress a few. My unit would be on a training exercise and an evaluator would make a comment like, “How did you know that?”  I even found myself correcting them a few times. I think it was this time in my life when I realized the importance of training.  Repetition and drilling eventually leads to reaction.  You don’t need to think, you just know and you do.  This will become key in the years to follow.  It saved my life.   After OBC, I served 6 years as a platoon leader in another transportation unit.  Soon after 9/11, I was offered the command of the unit I deployed with.  They got me good.  I was offered commands before and I turned them down prior to 9/11.  I was in the “get out” mode and I didn’t want the responsibility of command. You see, I was coming up on the end of my 8 year obligation for my scholarship. I thought nothing of continuing my military career. Post-9/11 I was very patriotic and wanted to be part of the operation in Iraq.  Yeah, they got me real good. So that’s how I became a company commander.  Soon after taking command I was handed Captain’s bars, a rank I didn’t even want nor submit for.  Someone in Battalion put my packet together and submitted it for me.  It wasn’t long after my promotion that the unit was deployed.   I wish I could give you a bio of every single soldier under my command. They truly deserve the recognition given to units of glory.  Those units being the ones who are in the business of combat and measure success by enemy body counts.  We never knew how many enemy we killed. We’d kill and keep driving. We measured success by gallons of fuel delivered.  I personally measured success by every soldier making it back to base alive so they could drink their near-beer and play their Playstation with their buddies.  Our unit specialized in bulk petroleum transportation.  This was the major focus during our tour but we also received convoy security missions, training missions, other types of cargo transportation missions, and we almost escorted an ambassador to Turkey.  That mission almost being given to us told me the level of faith our higher HQ had in us. We were that damn good at our jobs. I imagine the ambassador hopped a chopper to Turkey instead. Smart, regardless of our abilities.   In closing I wanted to set the tone for the remaining chapters. I want to describe what it’s like to be a fuel transportation unit in Iraq. You know the ducks you shoot at with a BB gun at fairs and carnivals. We were the ducks and they burn for a long time if they catch fire. Sometimes the BB’s were a 125 mm artillery round with wires sticking out of it. If you want to know what it’s like to drive on the roads in Iraq, try this exercise.  Choose a road you know like the back of your hand. Perhaps it’s a road you drive to work every single day.  Have you ever seen a dead animal on the side of the road?  That animal might have a bomb in it and it’s going to explode as soon as you drive by.  Have you ever seen a car parked on the side of the road? That car is going to explode as soon as you drive by.  Have you ever seen a cop on your drive in to work?  That cop is the trigger man of a much larger ambush that’s going to try and kill you. How about that building or house you drive by every single day? Someone is going to shoot an AK-47 out a window and try to kill you. And my personal favorite, every single car driving along side you, in front of you, or behind you, could be a suicide bomber that’s going to try and blow up your tanker full of fuel.  Transportation soldiers went through that nearly every single day. I have a high school buddy  who is in the Army Special Forces.  He wrote me one day and told me he made it to the big show. He asked me how we did that day in and day out. My response was, “You guys drive in small groups and have much better weapons.  Now imagine your 4 vehicle convoy is actually 30+ vehicles and 2 miles long.”  What I didn’t tell him was, now do that for over a year. As I recall, Special Forces tours are a few months.  If I’m wrong, I apologize.  I don’t want to piss off someone that can kill me with their thumb.  I know they have it rough, but I’m convinced the soldiers who drive on the roads of Iraq nearly every single day had the toughest, most thankless job the U.S. military ever saw.

Progress Energy - A Bias Company   Progress Energy is one of the largest electric power providers in the state of Florida. I work in the call center. I have done well in my career with the company, however the company is taking a stance, in regards to the Spanish community with which I disagree. Since the state or Florida has such a large number of Spanish speakers, which is increasing every day, it is important to have adequate personnel to man Spanish calls.  Progress Energy has however taken sides with someone who does not have the interest of the customer at heart.   Representatives who speak Spanish sit in close proximity with in the call center. This has been so for close to a decade if not more.  Because Spanish speaking reps deal with the same customers as their Spanish speaking peers next to them, this help when you need to quickly discuss something in regards to an account.  This also helps out when you need to review documentation of an account with a Spanish speaking peer and so-forth.  This is just a few examples of the advantage. However it makes sense that in a large organization, those that perform similar job functions should sit in close proximity.   Everyone with in the call center takes calls.  And those that are part of the Spanish Team, as previously mentioned, sit in close proximity.  Likewise, those that work on the New Construction Team (dealing primarily with contractors) sit together.  The same is true for all other specialty teams such as the On-Line or Web Support Team.  However what I’m upset about is the fact that the Spanish team is being disbanded and broken up.  The company states that this is for reasons of diversity.  However, it doesn’t seem that way.   The Spanish Team was previously overseen by a Spanish Speaking supervisor.  Recently a new supervisor was brought in who doesn’t speak Spanish.  The fact that she is overseeing a group of employees that she can’t understand seems to be the root of the problem.  Because members of the Spanish Team are there for the purpose of taking primarily Spanish calls, they spend the majority of their shift speaking Spanish both with the customer and with each other.  The new supervisor doesn’t seem to like that.  And it seems to be that because she doesn’t understand us she put in a request to have the Spanish Team broken up, citing that it was for reasons of diversity.   How does this move benefit the customer? It doesn’t. It does the exact opposite.  But then again so does every other move Progress Energy has made in regards to the Spanish Speaking community.  As mentioned previously, the Spanish Team used to be overseen by a Spanish speaking supervisor.  That is no longer the case.   How does this benefit the customer? It doesn’t.  Currently if you’re a Spanish speaking customer and you request with a Spanish speaking supervisor, there isn’t one. How does that benefit the customer? It doesn’t.  So what does Progress Energy do to help the Spanish speaking community? To date, everything that’s been done has been to the contrary . The Spanish speaking Supervisor was removed.  A non-Spanish speaking supervisor was put in place. After-hours Spanish speaking reps were removed.  And the Spanish team was disbanded.   Progress-Energy is one company that does not have the Spanish community in mind.

Don’t believe one optimistic word from any public figure about the economy or humanity in general. They are all part of the problem. Its like a game of Monopoly. In America, the richest 1% now hold 1/2 OF ALL UNITED STATES WEALTH. Unlike 'lesser' estimates, this includes all stocks, bonds, cash, and material assets held by America's richest 1%. Even that filthy pig Oprah acknowledged that it was at about 50% in 2006. Naturally, she put her own 'humanitarian' spin on it. Calling attention to her own 'good will'. WHAT A DISGUSTING HYPOCRITE SLOB. THE RICHEST 1% HAVE LITERALLY MADE WORLD PROSPERITY ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. Money does not grow on trees. When too much wealth accumulates at the top, the middle class slip further into debt and the lower class further into poverty. A similar rule applies worldwide. The world's richest 1% now own over 40% of ALL WORLD WEALTH. This is EVEN AFTER you account for all of this ‘good will’ ‘humanitarian’ BS from celebrities and executives. ITS A SHAM. As they get richer and richer, less wealth is left circulating beneath them. This is the single greatest underlying cause for the current US recession. The middle class can no longer afford to sustain their share of the economy. Their wealth has been gradually transfered to the richest 1%. One way or another, we suffer because of their incredible greed. We are talking about TRILLIONS of dollars. Transfered FROM US TO THEM. Over a period of about 27 years. Thats Reaganomics for you. The wealth does not 'trickle down' as we were told it would. It just accumulates at the top. Shrinking the middle class and expanding the lower class. Causing a domino effect of socio-economic problems. But the rich will never stop. They will never settle for a reasonable share of ANYTHING. They will do whatever it takes to get even richer. Leaving even less of the pie for the other 99% of us to share. At the same time, they throw back a few tax deductable crumbs and call themselves 'humanitarians'. IT CAN'T WORK THIS WAY. This is going to end just like a game of Monopoly. A total collapse of the US economy. Probably within a decade. The richest 1% will live like royalty while the rest of us fight over jobs, food, and gasoline. Crime, poverty, and suicide will skyrocket. So don’t fall for all of this PR CRAP from Hollywood, Pro Sports, and Wall Street PIGS. ITS A SHAM. Remember: They are filthy rich EVEN AFTER their tax deductable contributions. Greedy pigs. Now, we are headed for the worst economic and cultural crisis of all time. SEND A “THANK YOU” NOTE TO YOUR FAVORITE MILLIONAIRE. ITS THEIR FAULT. I’m not discounting other factors like China, sub-prime, or gas prices. But all of those factors combined still pale in comparison to that HUGE transfer of wealth to the rich. Anyway, those other factors are all related and further aggrivated because of GREED. If it weren’t for the OBSCENE distribution of wealth within our country, there never would have been such a market for sub-prime to begin with. Which by the way, was another trick whipped up by greedy bankers and executives. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. The credit industry has been ENDORSED by people like Oprah, Ellen, Dr Phil, and many other celebrities. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. So don’t fall for their ‘humanitarian’ BS. ITS A SHAM. NOTHING BUT TAX DEDUCTABLE PR CRAP. Bottom line: The richest 1% will soon tank the largest economy in the world. It will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. and thats just the beginning. Greed will eventually tank every major economy in the world. Causing millions to suffer and die. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL. Please copy this entry and run it by any professor of socio-economics. I speak the truth. WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.

I have a friend, who, since I've known her, has been in one long term relationship after another. Everytime she meets a new guy, she believe he's 'the one' and suffers through years-long relationships with men she seems to never really love with. 99 percent of the time she looks like she is just trying to cover for being bored and miserable.  Here's some advice. It's OKAY to be single. You don't have to have a boyfriend. You learn alot by being on your own, and having independence. You should be as picky about your men as you are your comforter. You don't buy some cheap, tacky, uncomfortable comforter just because you're afraid there won't be one out there for you, so why would you act differently about finding a guy?

I lost my virginity... to my bestfriend's ex-boyfriend. She has no clue... and hopefully it will stay that way. I think the real reasons I did it was because I was tired of being a virgin while everyone else around me wasn't... and because deep down I wanted to get a little revenge on my bestfriend (not that she would really care too much anyways) because she has ditched me for her new boyfriend.  She really has missed out on my life... yet she's still right there where she'll always be. I just wish she still cared.

love & life

confession
My husband becames with this man.  They became best of friends and my husband could not wait for me to meet him.  The day we met, one look at him and my heart stopped.  I immediately looked at the ground, not like me.  He did as well.  He wasn't warm to me.  We were together often but he would never look me in the eye even though he always did when speaking to other people.  Eventually we became really good friends.  One day almost 2 years later he called me to pour his heart out.  The same thing had happened to him on the day we met.  It was so wrong, both of us married, him being my husbands best friend but he couldn't live with his secret feelings for me and he had to tell me.  We shared the same feelings and the same reservations.  We met up one night to talk.  Yes, of course it happened.  That started our affair.  Love was instant, sex was AWESOME!  His wife is a psycho bitch.  Eventually he walked away from all of his friends.  I was lost, felt betrayed yet as much as I hurt I still loved him.  I hear things about him every so often, and my heart breaks for him.  He's so quiet that if he really hurts he'll lock it up inside and withdrawl and of course people need to start rumors and stories as to why he's being so quiet.  It's been a year and a half since we stopped seeing each other.  He called me once on Thurs and told me he would call again on Monday.  His life went to hell over that weekend and I never spoke to him again.  He called me, FINALLY!  We missed the hell out of me.  I told him I couldn't decide what hurt most, losing the greatest lover or losing my best friend.  If I could only have one I'd still be with him.  He said the same.  Both of us are very private people and hold allot of things inside.  With each other there are no secrets and nothing we can't talk about.  We have so much in common and oddly, regardless of the lies to others to keep our secret safe, we have complete trust in each other.    My plans for this year were to leave my husband.  I'm tired of getting struck by a drunk.  I deserve better.  Yes, I may have done the ultimate wrong but with him it felt so right.  My one and only affair and if the feelings had not been as strong as they were it would have never happened.  We both held those feelings back for almost 2 years before we couldn't hold them back any longer.  He's finally decided all that he's worked for isn't worth living with his wife, his wife hits him too.  He was so unhappy last year.  He called because he needed his friend. I don't know where this will lead, honestly, I don't even care.  I got my friend back!  Oh God, how I've missed him.  I get to get good sex again, Oh God, how I've missed that!  You see, we're not bad people just two hearts and minds that insist on being together.

Ever since my mother passed away I've fallen into a depression. . . My work ethic has decreased immensely and I only enjoy doing two things (mainly). Music.. and sleep. I promise you if I could sleep forever I believe I would. Sometimes it's the time I'm happiest.. just on my bed..eyes closed.. dreaming about the unreal. Music has also been amazing.. just playing my instrument..makes me so happy .... I fear when college comes around I will fail. Now I barely have energy to do HW when I return from school and I end up sleeping until the next day. It's been like this for a year. I'm managing to keep my grades at in the B+ ~ A- range.. but it would be a solid "A" if I did my work. it's been tough..but that's life. =P .. poop

boys :/...

rant
why do i like that one boy. hes so not my type. all my friends hate him. he's cocky as hell. i hate him so much but i can't stop loving him. its been months and i can never get him out of my head. ive had other boys but i just keep wanting him. its so frustrating i cant get over him but he seemed to have moved on....but then when his friends talk about how im hot he gets hella jealous. the most confusing guy ive ever met and we talk about how he never has girlfriends and he says its b/c hes gunna graduate in a few months anyway so whats the point of having a gf if their gunna gt hella close then be heartbroken when they have to split.

Hi there  this is a story of a boy and a girl. Nothing different. There was a boy named a. he went to study in a boarding school. he then went to  college and then finally joined NI to work. There he met a beautiful shy cute and very very sweet girl. He ofcourse thought that there was no way he could get her. He so just passed by her and one day soon after he had met her, his boss called him to set up a joint internship with her!    He was still very pessimistic about it. In his first meeting with her he teased her about her hairs. Its only him who knew how much he enjoyed that moment talking to her. As days passed by, he started talking more and more. She also talked more and more. They almost spent the full hours together. He started to get a hope that she might like him. Being neglected and treated badly before in his life, he had his best bet to call for an answer straight throwing it at her. He couldnt live the uncertainty of hope that had risen upto. He called her on the double road restaurant one day. This was his first ever date of his life. At least sort of. He enjoyed that evening with her but he didnt ask her anything that day. Another day he once again called her. She came again (to his surprise). He told her that he liked her. But she replied that she didnt like him. She said that you wouldnt love her in future. But that was too late for him to listen to after she had said no. He was very happy inside being the romeo once again. But he did love her. So he felt very sad too. And in some corner of his heart, it kind of got confirmed that girls dont like him. Esp her.     She went back to her school after internship was over. He was sad and helpless and angry and depressed. He started taking his anger out on her. He did terribly good at that and managed to completely fuse her threshold. She then cut him off for a few years. Closed all contacts and alarmed all common friends. In this age of internet, he ran out resources to get across a single word to her. He felt desperate  and sad about having lost even the last chance of having any communication with her. He was alone and he was cold. Then one day he came to know about a coursework called airwork forum. He attended that and it sparked a lightening in his brain. He did take adv course to have it though. He started fighting again. He went up to her and met her in person. Being miserable in his personality and physical looks he failed. She had numerously told him several times to just go away. He still kept on fighting and fighting in a very wrong way (im sure as it didnt work). Then one day he got a threatening call from her brother to stop bothering her.      That was the end of the romeoship. He completely gave up the idea of being a romantic hero and making a comedy of his life. He realized how miserable he had been with her. He also realized that he did love her a little.   Time passed by and now as I write I just watched the movie "The Notebook" today after about 5 years its been. Yes that boy is me. Today I cried again. After several years. And I missed her. I miss her all the time.  The end of the story is yet to be written. For all of you I wish you pray to god to make the best possible ending for her..  As if I dont get her, god will be there for me. So either ways it shall be fine.   And for those of you trying to take out a lesson out of this, remember an angel will come to you only once. Dont miss your chance.    A

Hopefully I (and you) will only do this once, so its nice to feel good about the purchase afterward.  Here is some things I discovered in the process:  Good advice is hard to come by, even on the net.   This post isn't going to help you choose a diamond, your on your own for that, although I will mention to make sure the rating system being used is consistent among all your potential stones.  GIA appers to be the most stringent and best rating system.  Most realators don't own their diamonds, this is especially true if you are buying the diamond online (like from USAA).   Once you've selected a stone, get the measurements and the GIA certification number (assuming the stone is GIA certified).  The measurement go down to the 1/100, so it is a pretty unique identifier.  Google those measurements, and you should get some results that direct you to wholesalors.   These wholesalors don't care whether they sell to a retailer or directly to you the consumer.  You will be able to find the EXACT diamond you were going to buy from the retailor, the EXACT one, not one just like it.  You will know it is the exact one becusae the measurements will be identicle, the ratings will be identicle and most telling it will have the same GIA report number (assuming once again the stone is GIA certified).  The only difference you will notice is the price will be 10-15% or so lower.  I hope this is helpful to some of you.

I think it's ridiculous that insurance companies get to dictate treatment by refusing to pay for certain drugs, procedures, treatment protocols, etc. The abuses seem especially outrageous for mental health treatment, as so often an insurance representative gets to decide what is "medically necessary" despite evidence provided by psychiatrists, psychologist, and social workers. Multiple states in the US have begun to implement parity laws for mental health benefits, but they certainly do not solve all the current problems associated with getting insurance coverage for mental health treatment. In New York, for example, “Timothy’s Law” was just passed in 2007, which is supposed to enforce parity in mental health treatment coverage. However, the law differentiates between “biologically-based” and “non-biologically-based” mental illnesses. Only nine illnesses, including major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, anorexia, bulimia, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and delusional disorder, are categorized as “biologically-based.” So a person who has a clinical diagnosis of anything other than those nine disorders is basically out of luck in terms of insurance coverage. Moreover, defining them as “biologically-based” and “non-biologically-based” also implies that if your disorder or disease isn’t on the above list, it’s not because of some biological cause – i.e. it’s your fault. It’s absurd to say that because we don’t completely understand the brain and mental illness, we’re going to just say that other diseases are completely the result of environment/personality. How do we know that scientists won’t discover a gene related to alcoholism or borderline personality disorder or generalized anxiety disorder in the coming years? Further more, why does it matter if your mental illness is “biologically-based” or not? Insurance should be mandated to pay for treatment that mental health professionals deem appropriate for a person, regardless of this arbitrary classification system.

i really like this guy...but we come from two different backgrounds... racially and socially.  He's this white gamer dude who likes to smoke pot and go out and drink all the time and i'm this dredlock totin' black girl who is anything but that.  I don't think it has to do with the good girl bad boy concept all though it might seem that way. I just know that when i see him there is a connection between us. before we had expressed our feelings to eachother through aim but when we are face to face we don't know what to do... It's frustrating because he wants to get drunk and make out and i'd rather be sober. OH and i forgot to mention he's a man whore.

my boyfriend finally stepped up and made a commitment to me, by asking me to move in with him. to do this i have to pack all my stuff and move 6 hours away from my friends and family. i was very excited to start this new life with him. now, he has lost his job. i feel like ive been kicked in the  head. his lease is up on june 1st. and he plans on moving back up here, providing he gets a job. he still wants me move down. and then move back up with him. in the midst of this two and a half months, i have a sister, my only sister, getting married. so ill need to take three days to come up in april for her shower and then for a week in may for her actual wedding. my brain and gut are telling me to stay, but i also have roommate issues that i previously blogged about (all relationships suck). my heart wants to live with my boyfriend. i want to start building traditions with him. my friends and family are mixed half and half and i prayed about it but, either god is telling me to wait or he hasnt answered me at all yet. plus, im not sure that i would hear him even if was talking. help.

I would like to expose the big pink elephant in the room when a certain family member is around. The serious issue is eating me up and I am sick of it being swept under the rug. I do not like people who don't know much about me but still have something against me. This person often judges other people without full knowlege of the situation in which they judge. They are often wrong and admit to being confused. They keep a warped sense of reality that EVERYONE else is aware of but will not say it to this person. This person has a false sense of entitlement but noone has told them. If this person was told how everyone else feels about them it would be a huge thunderstorm. Sometimes it takes a really good storm to clear the air. I want the thunderstorm to be over with so the clouds can clear and I can have fresh air.

I was shallow. I only was with guys that were hott or cute or something. I let them use me. I didn't want to be alone. Then I met this guy. He definitely didn't have the looks that I usually go for but the more I talked with him and hung out with him, the more I realized that looks don't even matter. We hung out for a while and he made me feel so comfortable. He made me feel like I was the only girl in the entire world. We never even kissed but I know that I am in love with him. The worst part is that I didn't even realize it until he stopped talking to me. I didn't even realize that he was the only nice guy i have ever met. He told me I was beautiful and he put his arm around me all of the time. He never expected to get sex or anything out of our realtionship, which was only a friendship. But I had never met a guy like that. I guy who just liked me because of who I was. I didn't even know those guys existed. And now he won't speak to me . He won't ook at me. And I don't know what I did wrong. I don't know what to do. I miss him and I love him and he obviously doesn't feel the same way about me. I just can't believe that the first nice guy that I thought was different from the others turned out to be the same. My heart is broken. I feel so empty and alone. I can't go one day without thinking about him. I cry all of the time. I come home everydayand just start to cry. I don't know what else to do. I don't know if I even believe in love but I believe that someone can make you feel like no one else can make you feel and he did that. He made me feel so good and now without him, I feel like nothing.

Platelet for a day

confession
I can't do it. I try, but I just can't put myself out there. I want to be heard, I want to write, I want to photograph, I want to create art..but there is this gate that I can't get past. Sometimes I can stick my arms through, dabble in this or that, touch the brick wall on the other side..but no amount of climbing can get me up and over. I feel like I've been climbing for a long time. Every few months I give up completely and, very calmly, let go. I freefall until my head slams into the concrete below. I had a drain put in a few years ago, because after a few falls the blood begins to build up and not only am I stuck behind a gate that will never open, I have to put up with the rotting of my own platelets. It wasn't the stench I minded so much, you get used to it, but my shoelaces were always covered in burgandy slime. Dirty shoelaces annoy me. Spring is approaching so its time I got the coca-cola out and scrubbed away this years worth of  skull stains I wish I could chuck a platelet through the gate..just one..and BE that platelet..even if only for a day.  You see..I can run away with metaphors but I can't extract whats really there. I'm afraid to expose anything I write or do, because it probably seems so dramatic..but how can it be dramatic when its reality? Its not attention seeking. Perhaps its the opposite. If I can get it out of me..completely out..not in a word file on my computer or scrawled in my journal..maybe I won't have to pay attention to it anymore. I don't want anyone to have to read this, but..FUCK..i'm out of words

I just found out someone I know to be a sexual preditor is in the process of obtaining a teaching liscense and is already employed by a school... What do I do? To my knowledge, this person has never been legally charged, but has been fired from several jobs and schools due to inappropriate behavior. In my opinion, this person should never be permitted around students of any age. Should I write a letter to the school? I can't bear the thought of another student becoming a victim.

In America today, almost as many African-American children are aborted as are born. A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby. Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent. Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined. Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history. Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods. About 13 percent of American women are black, but they submit to over 35 percent of the abortions. http://www.klanparenthood.com/History_of_Abortion_Statistics/

Big surprise. ANOTHER A-list celebrity steps in front of the camera with a tax deductable contribution. Promoting her latest multi-million dollar project in the very same segment. Using her 'humanitarian' image as an excuse for her own incredible greed. As an excuse to concentrate the world's wealth and resources in her own back yard. As an excuse to live an extravogant, power-hungry, jet-setting, global warming lifestyle. Traveling the world in the name of 'humanity'. WAKE UP PEOPLE. DREW BARRYMORE IS JUST ANOTHER FILTHY RICH MULTI-MILLIONAIRE HOLLYWOOD HUMANITARIAN. THIS LITTLE PR STUNT WILL MAKE HER EVEN RICHER IN A MATTER OF WEEKS. ITS JUST BUSINESS. C'mon people. Even Michael Vicks, Michael Jackson, Martha Stewart, Don Gotti, Al Capone, Bernie Ebbers, Jeffery Skilling, and Kenneth Lay all gave to charity. EVERY PUBLIC FIGURE GIVES TO CHARITY. IT MEANS NOTHING. Its just business. Nothing but tax deductable PR crap. An excuse for their own incredible greed. These people are not part of the solution. They are part of the problem. Don’t believe one optimistic word from any public figure about the economy or humanity in general. They are all part of the problem. Its like a game of Monopoly. In America, the richest 1% now hold 1/2 OF ALL UNITED STATES WEALTH. Unlike ‘lesser’ estimates, this includes all stocks, bonds, cash, and material assets held by America’s richest 1%. Even that filthy pig Oprah acknowledged that it was at about 50% in 2006. Naturally, she put her own ‘humanitarian’ spin on it. Calling attention to her own ‘good will’. WHAT A DISGUSTING HYPOCRITE SLOB. THE RICHEST 1% HAVE LITERALLY MADE WORLD PROSPERITY ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. Don’t fall for any of their ‘humanitarian’ CRAP. ITS A SHAM. THESE PEOPLE ARE CAUSING THE SAME PROBLEMS THEY PRETEND TO CARE ABOUT. Ask any professor of economics. Money does not grow on trees. The government can’t just print up more on a whim. At any given time, there is a relative limit to the wealth within ANY economy of ANY size. So when too much wealth accumulates at the top, the middle class slip further into debt and the lower class further into poverty. A similar rule applies worldwide. The world’s richest 1% now own over 40% of ALL WORLD WEALTH. This is EVEN AFTER you account for all of this ‘good will’ ‘humanitarian’ BS from celebrities and executives. ITS A SHAM. As they get richer and richer, less wealth is left circulating beneath them. This is the single greatest underlying cause for the current US recession. The middle class can no longer afford to sustain their share of the economy. Their wealth has been gradually transfered to the richest 1%. One way or another, we suffer because of their incredible greed. We are talking about TRILLIONS of dollars. Transfered FROM US TO THEM. Over a period of about 27 years. Thats Reaganomics for you. The wealth does not ‘trickle down’ as we were told it would. It just accumulates at the top. Shrinking the middle class and expanding the lower class. Causing a domino effect of socio-economic problems. But the rich will never stop. They will never settle for a reasonable share of ANYTHING. They will do whatever it takes to get even richer. Leaving even less of the pie for the other 99% of us to share. At the same time, they throw back a few tax deductable crumbs and call themselves ‘humanitarians’. Cashing in on the PR and getting even richer the following year. IT CAN’T WORK THIS WAY. Their bogus efforts to make the world a better place can not possibly succeed. Any 'humanitarian' progress made in one area will be lost in another. EVERY SINGLE TIME. IT ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT WORK THIS WAY. This is going to end just like a game of Monopoly. The current US recession will drag on for years and lead into the worst US depression of all time. The richest 1% will live like royalty while the rest of us fight over jobs, food, and gasoline. Crime, poverty, and suicide will skyrocket. So don’t fall for all of this PR CRAP from Hollywood, Pro Sports, and Wall Street PIGS. ITS A SHAM. Remember: They are filthy rich EVEN AFTER their tax deductable contributions. Greedy pigs. Now, we are headed for the worst economic and cultural crisis of all time. SEND A “THANK YOU” NOTE TO YOUR FAVORITE MILLIONAIRE. ITS THEIR FAULT. I’m not discounting other factors like China, sub-prime, or gas prices. But all of those factors combined still pale in comparison to that HUGE transfer of wealth to the rich. Anyway, those other factors are all related and further aggrivated because of GREED. If it weren’t for the OBSCENE distribution of wealth within our country, there never would have been such a market for sub-prime to begin with. Which by the way, was another trick whipped up by greedy bankers and executives. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. The credit industry has been ENDORSED by people like Oprah, Ellen, Dr Phil, and many other celebrities. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. Now, there are commercial ties between nearly every industry and every public figure. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. So don’t fall for their ‘good will’ BS. ITS A LIE. If you fall for it, then you’re a fool. If you see any real difference between the moral character of a celebrity, politician, attorney, or executive, then you’re a fool. WAKE UP PEOPLE. ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. The 1% club will always say or do whatever it takes to get as rich as possible. Without the slightest regard for anything or anyone but themselves. Vioxx. Their idea. Sub-prime. Their idea. NAFTA. Their idea. Outsourcing. Their idea. The commercial lobbyist. Their idea. The multi-million dollar lawsuit. Their idea. $200 cell phone bills. Their idea. $200 basketball shoes. Their idea. $30 late fees. Their idea. $30 NSF fees. Their idea. $20 DVDs. Their idea. Subliminal advertising. Their idea. The MASSIVE campaign to turn every American into a brainwashed credit card, pharmaceutical, love-sick, celebrity junkie. Their idea. All of which concentrate the world’s wealth and resources and wreak havok on society. All of which have been CREATED AND ENDORSED by celebrities, athletes, and executives. IT MAKES THEM RICHER. So don’t fall for their ‘ good will’ ‘humanitarian’ BS. ITS A SHAM. NOTHING BUT TAX DEDUCTABLE PR CRAP. Bottom line: The richest 1% will soon tank the largest economy in the world. It will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. and thats just the beginning. Greed will eventually tank every major economy in the world. Causing millions to suffer and die. Oprah, Angelina, Brad, Bono, and Bill are not part of the solution. They are part of the problem. EXTREME WEALTH HAS MADE WORLD PROSPERITY ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE. WITHOUT WORLD PROSPERITY, THERE WILL NEVER BE WORLD PEACE OR ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE. GREED KILLS. IT WILL BE OUR DOWNFALL. Of course, the rich will throw a fit and call me a madman. Of course, their ignorant fans will do the same. You have to expect that. But I speak the truth. If you don’t believe me, then copy this entry and run it by any professor of economics or socio-economics. Then tell a friend. Call the local radio station. Re-post this entry or put it in your own words. Be one of the first to predict the worst economic and cultural crisis of all time and explain its cause. WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.

Ok so lastnight he was acting a bit weird, he didnt kiss me, come to think of it pay ANY recognition that i had even entered the room until i had been there about 10/15 mins...lovely. I had been so confused about "us" and hence this made it moreso. He kept telling me he liked me later on, as per usual for the past two weeks, so i asked him why he liked me.......to cut a long story short, and i quote, he spends "99.5% of the time alone" enjoys his own company and he doesnt see any future for the relationship in the long term, not just with me with any woman, but he still really likes me and wants to spend time with me and not just having sex. I am just out of a relationship and he was my "rebound" guy i guess, but i honestly did see a relationship developing between us. He wants me to meet him as usual in an hour or so..not gonna happen..i cant stand to be around him, i feel like i've just had a whole new heartbreak to deal with; i know it cant go on as before, but i want it to. im so unsure of what to do....i could meet him and pretend nothings wrong but he'd know, FRACK ITS OVER .......................................................................*sob*

i am very upset by my roommates lack of care in share of household chores. when i asked her to move in i offered a 50/50 cleaning schedule. she didnt acknowledge it. i am often doing all of the cleaning. when she has her guests over, i should not be cleaning the apartment. i recently left town for a little vacation and she told me over the phone that she cleaned. mopped the floor, did the dishes, etc. if the floor was mopped she did not sweep it first. both sides of the sink are filled with dirty dishes. i am moving out. i refuse to pick up after her anymore. i have washed my dishes that i have dirtied, but im not doing hers anymore. the sink smells like someone vomited in it. i dont care anymore. since she has lived here she has cleaned the bathroom one time. i have done it a million. the toliet is getting brown. i dont care anymore. it sounds gross, but im only here til this weekend then im gone. also, i dont think she cares about her body either, she has unprotected sex with all her "boyfriends" and sometimes, its two different guys in the same week. i think her latest guy is married. he started out real nice, going on and on about how he loves her and wants to go away with her and have babies with her. and now he claims hes working all the time. the only contact they have is email. she offers to see him and he says he wants to keep "control". i say he wants to control his wife not meeting his girlfriend. but, she keeps holding on. she seems like she is not playing with a full deck. but, maybe she is fooling me. i dont know. and as horrible as it sounds. i dont care anymore.

I have been married for almost 9 years. Together almost 11. Have 2 kids, 6 and 2. We fight all the time, mostly about finances. We're middle class. His issue- Have some debt (under $10) and the usual monthly bills. House payment, utilities, 2 car payments, etc. I think I haven't "loved" him for about 7 years. I stay for my kids. He is NOT a happy person. I think he has to create stess or problems. He can't just let things go. He is a yeller!!! I yell also, but nowhere near him. I am an extremely happy person, the only time I am not happy is when I am with him. My whole family, me included, is religious. This is another reason I feel I need to stay in my marriage. But I am sure God doesn't want his children unhappy til death do us part. I have seen the damage to kids of divorce. I have also seen the damage to kids in an unhappy environment. I am so torn. I wish I had the courage to leave. On the other hand, I feel waiting til all our debt is paid off would be more beneficial. I am losing my mind. I talk myself into staying for this, that or the other reason. Maybe I need someone to tell me it's ok to leave. I don't know what I want for real, anymore. Maybe just to get it all out, maybe advice, who knows. I do feel better, so thank you for this blog.

I'm quite up and down emotionally and experience time of mild to moderate depression with some anxiety for which I take antidepressants. I'm currently a bit depressed. I'm married with a full time job & have so much going for me in life. there isn't any reason for my mental health and I've experienced 5 episodes of depression since I was 18 and I'm not 25. How do we learn to accept ourselves, when we have depressive tendencies and emotional instability. I'm so up and down and get upset about small things. I've cried twice at work recently and can't seem to help crying sometimes. the last 2 weeks I've said I would go to social meetups at work in the evenings but when I get home I just want to hide away and be alone that I haven't gone. I feel like the only one who hides away and cannot trust or be in control of one's feelings. Over the weekend I wasn't motivated to do anything so I just ate and slept. Is that ok? You know, as an adult, when no one enforces rules over your free time, what is ok and what isn't? If you don't have to get out of bed in the morning is it ok to stay in bed 'til 1? Is it ok to fail to keep up boring jobs at work? I don't know... I know I'm a perfectionist and perhaps have a distorted view on reality. I will get upset if I see other people who are in a similar position who don't have my mental health problems, as I'm very comparitive. I guess it's ok to have problems isn't it? It's ok to have a mental health problem? Is it ok for a health professional to have a treated mental health problem? At the moment I'm stuck in my cotton wool brain, my own introspective world. How much should I push myself and try to get out of this? I've made things worse in the past by trying and struggling to no avail. I don't have that normal survival instinct of struggling to keep going when I can't see a solution. I'm too perfectionist.

Yep, I kill animals for a living. i am a Certified Animal Euthanasia Technician. And sometimes it really sucks to do something so bad for all the right reasons.  You might get angry with me because this is what I do and no matter how downtrodden I get sometimes I will defend myself to the end. I've seen too many animals that have been abused, undernourished, sick and too damn wild to touch to not know I am doing a good thing.  How can anyone say it is fair to have a shelter animal imprisoned in a cage for days, months sometimes even years? Every animal reacts differently some all it takes is a day other can maintain themselves for months before becoming so upset refusing to eat, mutilating themselves or screaming unbtil they lose their voice.....and how can I not say this is for the 'right' reasons. I can't save them all and I certainly cannot take the thousands (yes thousands..)  each year I euthanize home with me. Yes, my job really sucks sometimes but then there are the moments when you attach yourself to a certain one and they find the "perfect" adoptive parents. Any adoption is great but when it is for someone special you wanna cry both because you hate to see them go and you are so happy they got a home and have the opportunity to go out the front door instead of the rear. So before you judge me, remember I dont get pleasure from what I do, I am not stone hearted rather just the opposite my passion for animals is what enables to be kind until the very end............

I am so tired of living with depression and anxiety. I wish I could turn off my over-active brain and have two minutes of quiet. I am tired of taking meds, seeing therapists, talking about depression, thinking about it, hiding it.   I function really well- hold down a job and participate in lots of activities. I drink too much, I always want to sleep, my house is a mess, and I can't enjoy my relationships. I'm worried I'll end up old and alone.   Everything worries me. I worry I won't ever get a job that I love, I worry my parents are going to get sick. I worry I'll get hit by a car. I worry that I'm not lovable. I worry that I'm going to end up a wasted human being. I worry I'll never really be happy again.

hello, it's me from 'cotton wool in the brain' fame. One of my professors once said 'don't force yourself to do what you're not ready to do'. It's difficult because there were points today where my mind was saying that everything was too much and I couldn't cope even though objectively nothing has changed. I've been very introspective and numb and am finding it hard to be objective or get on with things. I want to just hide away. I don't have much interest in other people at the moment. I just want to hide away. I feel so vulnerable and numb and weak having such a weak emotional disposition. There are many points during the day when I'm just carrying round this train of depression and it makes you feel crap whatever you're doing. I guess I realised it's ok to have a problem. One has to learn to deal with it. I thank God I've made it through this day at work. Only He knows the internal struggles I go through.

Alright, so here I go again.  My husband hasn't been home ALL fucking weekend.  I am so tired of his drinking.  He is STUPID when he's drunk and I have no patience with him  at all.  He has no memory at all.  He says I never want sex... Maybe if he didnt smell like the inside of a Nat Light can, I would!  And another thing... Why is it that he is so ready to help his friends at the drop of a hat, and it is like pulling teeth getting him to even give the kids a bath? I love him, but I am SO tired of living like this.  I am mad at him all the time.   If I was a physically confrontive person, I would knock the shit out of him.

Good morning all and happy saturday!!!!  I was just going through, trying to relax for once, and reading some of the blogs on this site and let me just say I'm glad I have a solid foundation of love and positive thinking because I feel the negativity radiating from most who write on here could have sent me into a hole!!  I just wanted to say to everyone out there, and I'm sure some of you reading agree with me 100%, that LIFE IS A FABULOUS GIFT!!!  Wow, you wake up every day with eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to walk around on, and most likely a warm bed, food in your belly, and even a computer with which you are using to COMPLAIN!  We all only have a short time on this earth, during which we have been blessed with this phenomenal freedom to make decisions and learn from mistakes, experience beauty, help our fellow mankind, laugh, love, cry, and LIVE!!  Rather than constantly dwelling on the things in your life you are not happy with, and we all have them, why not look at the things you take for granted every day and be grateful!  When I'm having a bad day or even begin to feel rough, my favorite thing to do is give to someone else.  One of our six basic needs as humans is to feel significant, and it seems to me that is what most of you are lacking in.  When you think you've got it bad, take some muffins or $1 menu sandwiches to some homeless people and just see the look of gratefulness in their eyes when they realize they don't have to beg and search for their next meal.  Talk to them for a minute, keep them company, and I guarantee you will walk away knowing that they will never forget you and meanwhile you will gain such perspective on what it is YOU take for granted.  I'm not meaning this to come off as some sort of lecture, but it pains me to see ANYONE in this world anything but jazzed about life, and I hope I can help just one person come out of the hole that they have put themselves in...even if just for a moment.  God gave you life for a REASON, whether you believe in Him or not, so what good does it do you or anyone around you to feel sorry for yourself and not live the life you have been given?!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and know that only YOU can decide to open your heart to the reality that life is a GIFT, NOT a burden, SO LIVE WITH PASSION!!!  See the sunrise beyond the smog!  Much love, smiles all around, and God Bless!   :-)

I am just curious if anyone here has ever used or know anyone who has used one of those devices to find hidden cameras.  Just wondering if they work.  Thanks for your time!!!  Make it a phenomenal weekend!

Hello (adieu after I receive applicalbe advice), Is a person's life worth more dead than alive?  I mean this in the context of not only perceived loved ones (whom I know see me as more of a nuisance), but to society at large?  I am 54 and have been battliing mental illness and co-morbid disorders most of my life?  Sorry, T.S. Eliot, but it can be too late to be what you might have been.  There is a point of diminishing returns when it comes to efforts to recoup a life, be it character defects or genetic makeup.  As I figure it, if I make the necessary arrangements within 30 days, all my creditors will be paid off and there will be a modest sum (that is entirely relative to the point of reference as far as income) for my beneficiaries.   I have requested that I be cremated and pray to God that my remainds aren't toxic waste (in the current administration's enforcement of environmental regulations, as long as I am constituted primarily as oil or a biochemical weapon, I am worth a mininum casualty count). Please don't expound upon me about how selfish I am being or how weak I am for not being able to "pull myself up by the bootstraps" and end this cycle.  The machine is broken beyond repair.  Be it defect of character or genetics, I can no longer struggle.  I've hit the poop deck, so to speak.  Just give me advice on how to minimize the cost and maximize the returns of my death.  I have modest investments that could easily cover my current debt load, leaving compensation for anybody in my life that may be inconvenienced by my parting.  I wish I could call myself, (Cagey K) P.S.  This is my first, and hopefully, final blog entry ever - enough for Ripley's Believe it or Not.  For the under 25 set,  that is par with sparring with Simon Cowle or texting Miley Cyrus.

Who the hell cares? So what if there are tv shows with Lesbian moms? Isn't that more true to life than this "perfect" family on most tv shows where there is mom dad 2 kids and all is perfect? Our society is very diverse and acceptance is the key. If you are a child with homosexual parents how wonderful to be able to identify with a show of the like. I know you must be thinking I am a homosexual which is untrue, however I do know several people who are and kudos for them to be able to come out of the closet and live life to the fullest instead of hiding behind a shade afraid to be true to themselves. True happiness can only come from accepting who you are and being happy. If you are living you life to meet the expectations of others than shame on you!!!!

Losing....

rant
I feel like I am losing (or perhaps a loser) at the game of life.  I can't seem to keep friends around, I alienate the people I love, I suck at my job, and I am so broke that the idea that I might lose my house is not unbelievable.  And it's probably all my fault.  At least most of it.      Friends.  I make them fairly easily.  I love having them.  But I get mired down in other stuff and am bad about returning calls or emails.  So friends stop trying.  And I stop trying.  Because I don't want to admit that one of the reasons that they haven't seen me is because I am embarrassed to admit that I am so broke that I can barely put gas in my car to go to work, let alone go out on the town.  And they ask what's new with me, what I have been up to -- nothing because I can't.  (And yes, I have great friends that would understand, put damnable pride you know?)   The people I love (besides my friends).  My family.  My husband.  My family -- I have amazing parents and an amazing brother.  But I was the oldest and only daughter who always did good.  Always had my shit together.  Do I want to admit that I am miserable b/c my life is not what I thought it would be?  My husband.  The man I love, who loves me.  But who has to put up with my dysfunction -- my jealousies, insecurities, moods and temper.  Why would anyone want to stay with that?   My job.  I put on a great fascade of being really good at what I do.  But deep down I think I am just fooling everyone...I'm a great fake.  I even have the prez of my agency fooled.   Money.  The bane of my existence. Anyone that is certain that money cannot buy you happiness has never been told to come up with $5000 in 4 days on a combined household income of $50,000 (with a $1600/mo mortgage, a $400/mo car note, bills, living expenses, and credit card and student loan debt).  Let me tell you how f*cking happy I would be if I had money right now.  My husband and I both work our asses off but for the last 6 months, every month something has happened.  His car, my car, a hot water heater, a car accident, a lawyer....the list goes on.   Before anyone suggests it, no, I am not suicidal.  I would NEVER do that to my family.  Yes, I have talked to debt consolidators, they have offered very minimal help. I have tried to take on a second job, but the nature of my main job makes that very difficult.   I  feel complately alone.  And robbed.  Thanks to anyone that bothers to read my bullshit whining.

Every day i wake up..go to school..come home and realize again and again that all my friends are gone. They are all away at colleges and Universities in different cities and states, while I'm stuck here with a community college where everyone is antisocial. I can't just go from having so many friends to having almost no one. there is my boyfriend though whom I am madly in love with without a doubt. I just cant handle putting him through my depression when we hang out. He says he still loves me and loves seeing me which is exactly what i want to hear. but at the same time I feel like a terrible person for becoming an upset, pathetic, depressed girlfriend all the time. I really am trying to feel better but I just cry every night before I go to sleep. I love him SO much and just wish I could be happy with just that.

    But it still sucks when you get that rejection letter.    And whose fault is it that I didn't get into the ONLY ccollege I applied to? It's my own fault.

They Deserve EVERYTHING they Give and More! BE Careful Mexico the Day is Coming, You only think you get away with it for So Long.
