    Here's a Good Joke.

    I had my dreams crushed this one time; I wanted to be a professional comedy writer living in New York City. The catch is that I am, or had been, an academic living in a small island city on the west coast of British Columbia. When I was 28 I had saved up a substantial amount of...

    When I was around 9 years old my father bought

    me a t-shirt which had Allen Iverson's photo on it. I think before that day I never had a direction to take in life and I didn't know what to do. I was playing basketball before that day too but after that t-shirt my obsession and love to basketball started. All I wanted to was...

    My Dream Was Killed

    I'd like to start this by saying that I am very shy and anxious, and have virtually no confidence. Now on with the story.... I have loved to sing since i was 9 years old (I'm 15 now) but have always been too afraid to sing in front of people. But after watching Glee, I was...

    For God And Country

    Ever since I was a kid, all I ever wanted to do was to serve in the Armed Forces. I loved playing soldier when i was little, it always felt so heroic and adventurous. Then 9/11 happened, and even though I was only in second grade, it infuriated me. From that day on, I knew that I...

    Ever since I was younger I always wanted to

    Movies

    It's Difficult

    It hurt me a lot to just have all my dreams crushed. I trusted someone when they told me they wanted to marry me and have a family with me, and I was litterally dreaming about it. Then one day its, "We should break up. I'm young and wanna live life," which was just code...

    A couple hours ago my dream of going to the

    best school in the state was crushed. It is an amazing school, so of course many people want to go there, because of this they have to hold a lottery to decide who gets in, and who does not.

    From Ashes To Dust

    Mashed. Squashed. Pounded. Crumbled. Pulverized. I took the ashes of my dreams Cradled them into faerie's hands. Sobbed. Moaned.  Whimpered. Silence. I breath faerielife into the ashes. And they turned into... Faeriedust. =)

    My only dream. It was a dream consisting of love, marraige, and romantic bliss. My love was the shining beacon at the end of the tunnel in my dreary, pointless existence. She gave me a reason for being, and I found that I was good at it. I had one skill, one specialty: Being with...

    By Myself

    I am my own worst enemy, I shattered all my dreams by negativity and pessimism. I was always afraid to take a chance, I was afraid to do my best. I was afraid of failure. So here I am, with no hope, and it's my own fault.
