    I sent my friend a McDonald's gift card

    for Christmas one year and she sent me a letter saying she was very thankful for the card. In the letter, it said she uses the card whenever her baby daughter wakes up at 4am, she'll go out and buy herself coffee and she'll get her daughter something to eat. Next Christmas after...

    So a few weeks back, a student at our school

    made a normal 'dear all' email asking for us to take her research questionnaire. Some people in our school proceeded to abuse the 'reply all' button and the butthurt quickly spread across the school as people were pissed at the spam. I, the smart one (sarcasm dripping), decided...

    Motorcycle Ride

    I Did Something Seriously Stupid...

    When I was sixteen I was online at teenspot.com chatting with other 'teens' I had never met before. One of them asked me to take my clothes off and touch myself and I did. I had never been with someone before that and it was totally out of character. I snapped out of it a few...

    Maybe I Should Quit Driving And Just Walk

    I had just totaled our only running vehicle and had to get a rental. After about a week and a half after getting the rental I was driving down the road one morning and wasn't paying much attention. My favorite song came on the radio and I was lost in it. When I heard a loud bang...

    The Cuationary Tale

    I've been working so much lately

    that it's effecting my judgement and ability to function. Today I was working a band concert and thought it would be goofy to dance at the end song so all the kids onstage could see, but later realized it just reminded everyone of how much I'm not an adult.

    I Told My Teacher

    About a year ago, I asked my mom if

    How Could I

    One morning while driving my kids to school I did something so horribly stupid. I was dropping them off when the door was stuck and my child couldn't get out. So I got out of the truck to open it for him when the truck started rolling forward and away with my kids still in it...

    I Started To Hope

    For a while I thought I finally had what I had always wanted. I was starting to hope. I never should have. I should have remembered I don't get what I want. Ever. It would never happen. No matter how much I wanted it. I never should have forgotten that.

    Couldn't Hold Back.

    I fell in love before he was a free man- twice. Thankfully, both times, they chose me. Edit- July 27, 2009: I am a stupid, needy call girl for lost boys and I will never believe the platitudes of "taken men" EVER again.

    I was telling a few people the story today

    about the time I kept touching a fuzzy cactus. I didn't know the fuzzy stuff on the cactus were glochids (barbed hair-like spines/short prickles). Basically felt like splinters and my entire palm hurt when I touched something after. I spent hours trying to take out tons of these...

    Sigh

    I did something stupid. I told someone I liked them. They rejected me. I knew they would. And I did it anyway. Not knowing would have been better than this. I guess it's true. If you can love someone, you can hate them just as much.

    I lie. I'm a big fat liar.

    I'm not 100% why I do it. It started in my childhood trying to impress my peers and those around me. It's gotten me into so much trouble and I have lost a job over lies that I told. Recently I told a whopping great and quite frankly despicable lie about a family member being ill...
