  • it makes me so so so so upset when people who honestly have wonderful parents complain or take advantage of them. you aren't going to get everything you want, or hear everything you want. they are your parents and you should show you love them and forgive them regardless. It is insanely disrespectful to those who have lost their parents or wished they had parents who were remotely kind to them. I am not invalidating your feelings, I am just saying be thankful for what you have, because you never know what others around you could be going through.

  • Okay so I have written pretty openly about this, but my mom walked out of my life around 7 years ago. Every year I get a small birthday gift, and this year I got a valentines day gift. She sent me a card and a ring, and the ring is too big for me, but the card sent me to tears.
    I talked to my grandma and we both agree that it is time for me to write a response. So I am currently trying to type up what I want to tell my mom, tell her about the simple things going on in my life and stuff like that. No one except my grandma and I know about this, or know I am doing this.
    I really hope this turns out okay.

  • any tips for writing suspense/murder mystery?
    please no obvious tips like "do plot twists!" or "make a good villain" like PLEASE I KNOWWWW. I NEED ACTUAL TIPS PLEASE!

    ALSOOO I am going to be doing NaPo again this year! Last year was a fun experience and I got a lot of good poems out of it. This year my theme will be "Life as I know it", writing poems about events and memories of my life.

    alliyah Yay!! NaPo! :}

    I don't have any tips for murder mysteries except I would think for mysteries plot mapping would be suuuupper important -- though the reader shouldn't know what's going to happen, you've gotta stay 5 steps ahead. Also a good mystery should be written in a way in which if the reader was reading really carefully they should have been able to figure out the case. So leave real bread crumb trails along with your false leads. :D Good luck! Sounds interesting!

    KaiTheGreater Not sure what kind of tips you're looking for exactly, and I've never written mystery before- but I love it when a small detail that gets overlooked in the beginning ends up making all the difference later on. Kinda hard to make it blend, and if you do it wrong, they're easy to spot and it ruins the whole thing. And then just when you think you understand the significance of that detail, it turns out to mean something else entirely.

    (Sorry, is this not helpful? I'm tired.)

    Also, it's not really helpful if you have all the evidence pointing in one direction, only to turn it around at the last second. Like come on, we already know this is a mystery so it can't be that simple, whatchu tryna pull?

  • Spoiler! :
    I'm not gonna change how sensitive I am just so you can be an asshole and get away with it.

    occymay I had a similar situation quite a few years back. My best friend would often say things she knew would upset and then get annoyed when I started crying. If you saw your friend upset by something you said you then wouldn't do it again. It's not fair, friends shouldn't do that to you.

  • we are one
    i can be our heart
    you can be our mind
    and we will work through this together

  • For years, everyone that has tried to get close to me has tried to break down my walls. I always felt a barrier between me and others. I always felt like I had to truly get to know them before opening up. People have made dents in my walls, and some have come close, but no one has ever truly done a whole lot. I have a lot of emotional barriers, I follow my heart and not my mind, and that makes me not think sometimes. But.. I think I finally found someone. The poem I wrote yesterday was for someone who has taken a big part of my life within the past 2 months already. I feel like with this someone, there is no wall. We trusted each other so easily and didn't know why, but now we do. I feel like we are on the same side of the wall, working together against the world. It makes me happy working together with someone. I am happy to have someone to help me think when I cannot, and being able to help someone with their emotions when they feel like they have none. It is a little hard to explain, but I am just happy to have someone to understand me and work with me. It is a feeling I have never felt before, and it is making me slowly fall in love

  • Okay so you know how all these awful school shootings have been happening in the US? It's honestly tragic. But today, we had an active shooter drill at school. And it's sad we have to switch from rare fire drills, to having to do more common shooting drills to make sure we know what to do in case it happens here.
    That is so depressing. These days, no where is safe. Not even my own private home. Now school? Getting an education is important and it's supposed to be a place of complete safety to get the proper learning skills to prepare for the future. And now we can't even sit in a classroom without worrying whether today may or may not be our last day?? And no one at my school is talking about his except for the teachers! Some of the students take it as a joke. It's SCARY. At the drill today, the room was pitch black (which is one of my fears) and I was so scared that I just put my knees up, hid my head, and tried to think of something else. Although it was just a drill, my heart raced. It's just so depressing and sad that not even our places of education are safe anymore.

    Snoink And today, my husband was locked out of work because of a bomb threat. Like. Why is the world so crazy?!

    AlexOfLight My school closed because of a threat to the Harrisburg school district which is in the same area as CASA.

  • a celestial romance

    our hearts unravel—feelings travel
    we soar into the clouds above
    beyond a place we already know of
    into the stars we stand there lost
    trying to find each other in the void
    an unfamiliar galaxy we learn about

    our constellations intertwine to try
    and find the answers to this feeling
    we experience deep inside our souls
    but you hold my hand while we float
    around in confusion—protecting me
    holding me close in the darkness
    let me be your sun and you can be
    my moon so full of beautiful
    mysteries that captivate me to know
    more about you.

    my heart is like the sun flaring with
    love for you and only you
    I hope we can venture through the
    milky way together—hand in hand
    and figure out all the stellar secrets
    to a beautiful romance.

  • one of my best guy friends asked me to prom with roses and a rose beauty and the beast necklace (the prom theme is Tale as Old as Time), it was so sweet! I love roses so much so it made me very happy.

    Other stuffs:

    I have an idea of maybe doing this thing every couple years where I write a long letter to my future children. Ideally, it would be for my future daughter, but there is always a chance I may have a son instead.

    These letters will consist of the things I learn throughout the rest of high school and college and life in general. It will be so one day, whenever they feel down, they can read the letters and the lessons I have for them. I want my future kids to know that I want to understand them, and be there for them.

    I am kinda excited to be a mom one day, the fact I do not really have a mother of my own inspires me to be the best mom in the world. I want to give them the amazing things in life I never had.

    This may be a stupid thing but, I want to try it.

    KaiTheGreater That sounds really awesome, and sweet. :) I can sympathize with wanting to be a good parent because you know what it's like to not have one. But I also know most people don't anticipate the amount of work and level of stress involved in raising kids, and those who don't have memories of a good example to draw strength from often tend to feel helpless. I think that's one more area where our relationship with God as our Father become so important. Just something to think about!

  • I need a hug. A real hug. A tight, loving embrace. And for someone to tell me that everything is okay

    soundofmind *hugs* it's okay, man (though I know this ain't a real hug, but, it's all I can do)
    Feb 20, 2018

    SnowGhost *hugs through screen* I promise everything will be okay, life tends to throw you an occasional speed bump but you can get through them :)

  • Being a hopeless romantic can be difficult in some situations, especially since I am super sensitive and my emotions tend to get the best of me. I have so many dreams of my future and life, like my future house and family, and the things I want to do. And falling for someone who has 0 dreams about any of that stuff and isn't super romantic can really suck. I feel like I dream too much or I am too much of a hopeless romantic. Is it wrong for me to be interested in someone who is the opposite of me in that regard? I dunno

I want to shake off the dust of this one-horse town. I want to explore the world. I want to watch TV in a different time zone. I want to visit strange, exotic malls...I want to live, Marge! Won't you let me live?
