    Rolf Harris is guilty.

    I am really shocked. Really let down. He was a hero to me. :(

    Why is it that when I try to do something fun

    (like go out for Happy Hour with the girls) and I come home at 10 pm. There's always someone around that makes me feel that I did something sooooo terribly wrong?

    You know when friends try to do things behind

    your back? Well thanks to social media such as the world of facebook, they cant quite get away with it like they used to. Like the fact that you can see when someone has read your message, and can therefore see whether they are ignoring you. You can see through the bullshit...

    Again. It's the consequence of putting yourself

    on the line. I hardly ever do it. But I did it this time. It seemed like I was on the right track. I asked him out and he said yes. But now the week is here where we are supposed to see each other and he's not responded and it's leaving me questioning everything. What did I do...

    Misunderstood

    Attractive, competent and to everyone else a confident woman.  No one sees me or understands what it's like when you go home behind closed doors and want to shut out the rest of the world. My close family doesn't understand - I have no real close friends as they all think I...

    I just got Chinese takeout

    and I got a fortune cookie but when I cracked it open, there was no fortune! A fortune cookie without a fortune is just a cookie :(

    It Happens

    Often I do but maybe it’s because I expect too much. Like when my family forgets my sons birthday but I always remember theirs. He doesn’t know any better but one day he will just like my oldest notices.  I guess I expect the call to come in and when it doesn...

    Why Don't Friendships Always Last

    This happened to me a while ago this year, but I've been thinking about it recently for some reason. I sing and play guitar, I write songs too, and I was looking for someone to jam with and write some stuff, maybe do some recording. After much toil (musicians are a funny bunch...

    Promises Not Kept

    My Ex would talk about all the pain that his parents divorce brought.  How disappointing and hurtful his father was.  I remember vividly when his father told him that he was getting divorced for the second time.  He was up all night wondering if his...

    Feeling a Little Let Down

    Over A Cancelled Date

    On a scale of 1-to-10, where 10 is very let down and 1 is just a little, this experience doesn't rank higher than a 5.  Nonetheless, it feels significant enough to share. One of my private enjoyments is watching WWE Wrestling.  Around one-and-a-half months ago, I...

    My True Love Shattered Me.... He Let Me Down

    I first saw him when I was 13 years old.  He walked into the Mosque and it was as if a glow was around him.  I had a strange feeling in my heart that he was the one.. I had no idea what his name was or how old he was, all I knew was that this was the man I was suppose to marry...

    I've been sick with the flu

    for two days. I asked my boyfriend who's been working through out this time if he would stop at the store after work to get me soup and maybe a shake from McDonald's. He stopped at the store and got everything , including Scotch for himself, except soup and a shake. He said he...

    About a week ago I had a friend ?

    say that they no longer wanted contact. After 15 years of almost daily communication, there is such a void. It is difficult not to want to text them in a moment of weakness but I know it's not the best.

    You told me you loved me,

    I wasn't sure if I could give you my heart. You want me to notice you, but take no notice in me. I'm not looking for another horribly unbalanced relationship, but my feelings betrayed me. Here I am, about to be free from the past; and you won't offer me a future, but wish me to...

    24 hours later. So I guess that's it.

    I put myself out there. But he hasn't responded back. Not only do I feel completely blindsided but I'm so confused why he hasn't contacted me, how could it go from being good to nothing in a matter of days. I don't regret reaching out to him, but I can't believe he hasn't had...

    Sometimes we all feel let down, either by a situation or person. When you are down, the only way is up. Think positive, even if you cannot see a way out. It has happened to us all.
