    I finished my Master's degree with a 3.9 GPA yesterday and strangers were more excited than my own family. If it were my brother finishing his law degree my parents would be ecstatic...but who cares about a little 'ole Masters?

    What Would Yall Do

    It is not so much that I do not know what to do, I want confirmation for what I will do.   Been with my wife for almost 12 years, married for 5 years. Within the first year, she had an affair with a young homeless man I took in helped to get back on his feet. I guess he...

    Makes Me Mad!

    I Am So Glad to Find You Because Lately I Am Feeling Very Taken For Granted Too.

    Maybe I have been too kind and accommodating- I think some of that is about to stop TODAY because it is simply not working for me.  After trading tickets from matinee to evening to suit my friend's split-second schedule, she said she couldn't make it to meet me at the...

    He didn't notice how much I was worth until I was gone. Since I've left him it's like he thinks I'll come right back. Things never turn out the way you want them to.
