    I Did It.

    Three weeks ago.   My house was put together.  It was clean.  There was a mess in the garage.  There was a mess in all of my closets.   Yesterday was the last day I spent there as I waited for my friends to show up to pick up the last of the...

    So Very Proud

    I knew that I was starting to get depressed and bothered by someone's weird behavior today evening. I didnt want to let her affect me. Also, as now I am aware that most of my emotions are coz of my hormonal imabalances, I INTENTIONALLY didnt get bothered by the person who was...

    I Got Myself Out of This Hole :)

    I had a pretty stressful day today. On the one hand I was longing for a quiet Sunday, then there's been my family who wanted to spend time with me, and of course there's school. Everything was just tearing me apart into little pieces, until there was just a little...

    Just finished registration at school.

    As soon as I got in my car and took a look at my school ID I was full with so many emotions. I stopped myself from crying. Tears of joy desperately waiting to drift out of me. I am proud of myself. Another stepping stone. Everyday I feel more complete. I am a work in progress!

    I never meant to hurt anyones feelings.

    I don't feel I should not talk about being proud just because it makes them feel less. It was something I focused on, something I did not want to be and it was very important to me and I accomplished it. I did not become a teen and/or single mother. Many of my friends had teen...

    Life Changing

    Well, my Cory left this morning and I didn't get to see him off. But at least this time there was a reason for it. I was up late last night studying for the ASVAB that I am taking at 2pm or so today. I have made a very big decision to join the Navy. I got a 35 on the practice...

    I was so cruel to myself.

    Before...i let them paint those heavy weights on my confidence. Worse, i painted the world on my worth, slowly crushing any hope i had left. They kept telling me that my accomplishments were not worth a story. I would cry because they did not know my struggle. Through winter...

    Today I pushed my fears behind me

    and stepped out of my shell. I took a chance and did not think about the risks as much and it was good. Now I will push myself to do this more often! Yay!

    that I would learn to love myself more and prove to those that hurt me that I'm not broken. I'm stronger. I have been exercising, trying my best to eat right and learn everyday that there is something to be thankful for. I realized my clothes fit much more looser, I have more...

    Taking Hold of My Emotions

    Last night I shocked myself and my girlfriend with something. For the first time in my entire life, I took hold of my emotions, instead of them controlling me. My girlfriend and I have been going through a rough time. This stems from her loss of respect and trust in me...

    I Found Ep Myself To Explore.

    I am proud of myself. I found EP for myself. Here is a sight where I can explore myself and relate. Learn from others and be inspired by theirs. A place where I can be open to myself, while being polite to each other. I am proud of myself I found EP.

    Hmmm

    I am proud of myself for being an animal-loving, Earth-loving, Universe-loving, miracle-believing, gay-marriage supporting, non-racist pacifist that sees what others don't seem to :) I just wish they would see it too :(

    One of my friends stumbled across my EP account

    today. I doubt that they'll remember the username long enough to actually check it out, but I would barely mind if that person saw. Yes, some of the experiences are related to him. Yes, I had a crush on him, and I would talk about that here. But I'm not ashamed of that. I'm not...

    I went out and tried to meet someone and got interest from them. After years of being shy and not doing anything, I am glad I went out and actually did it.

    Nearly 25 Hours Down And I'm So Proud!!

    I've now gone nearly 25 hours and I haven't eaten anything at all! Well, my mom forced me to eat a piece of salmon, but I ate the smallest piece I could get away with. It was only half the size of my thumb, so it probably had 10 calories in it at most. Besides that, I haven't...
