    "Mirror" Contd.

    So... the night of the cleaning jarheads continued, albeit with a little more upbeat attitude, now. Hey- when you find out someone wants that from you, it has a way of brightening your spirits, don't it? That Thursday ended nicely and drunkenly (we celebrated passing Field Day...

    ...almost There...

    Joining the USMC is- after having met my [future] wife in High School- the singular BEST thing I've ever done. Since I was dead set AGAINST going to secondary school, which I still don't regret, all I did was smoke weed and work at various stores, like Fabric Bonanza and...

    The Beat Goes On

    See, I realize that I left out so many details that would have given a clearer picture... but I'm just exasperated with this particular story by now. Let me say that I was no angel; when I got disciplined, I should have gotten disciplined. I'm a firm believer in respecting...

    ... Older Still...

    ...yeah. At this point, school's about to be part of my history; graduation was on the way, and I began to scramble to make sure I wasn't trapped there for another year. Even though I got most of my narcotics there, and generally had more fun with the people there than...

    "Mirror" pt 3

    I can't speak for my DM, but for me, when we finally hooked up, it was as close to my 'first time' experience as anything; DM was much more street than I could ever hope to be, thus I was a bit nervous about my performance... I was of the mind that, since she was more savvy than...

    Nothing New, But Way Past Getting Old

    I have an immediate family that seems to despise me and my own family. I'm sure there are thousands, if not more, that find themselves experiencing the same thing. My story goes like this... In keeping with popular psychobabble, my family's descent into non-friendly familial...

    ... Still Way Past Old...

    Just keep reading, and you'll get it... So, I'm a teenage druggie, drinker and sleep-arounder. I'd taken to these activities for most of the obviuos reasons- escape, attention, all that- but mostly because I was pissed; completely sick and tired of being harassed, harangued...

    Time to Look In the Mirror

    Now that I've (hopefully) exhausted my diatribe against my immediate fam, I'll move onto ME doing the screwing over. I posted a story in the "I was abandoned by my father" group a while ago, only as the ABANDONER, not the abandoned- though I was one of those, too...

    Repetitive, But Here It Is

    This is the same story from another group with added comments.. My mother is moody, mean and happy within hours, cruel and generous. She made me unsure of my perceptions of people, unsure about my own value as a person. I hear it's called "validation" or what...

    Dreams That Bug

    Been having dreams about various fam, lately, the ones I want to see burning in acid... knowing that it's because they're still on my mind and still have me upset- but they've been absent for over a year now; shouldn't I be able to just move on by now??? Wonder of wonders... the...
