    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...

    One Dream

    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...

    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.

    Prom

    The title encompasses dreams of many young ladies if you do not notice. Hopes and expectations while hidden, still exists. No joke or mockery or even the slightest ignorance should compromise the obvious because the title is what it is. Not being able to comprehend the dreams...

    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...

    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...

    Broken

    I don’t know from where to start. I guess I’ll just start from where it all began. When I was 6 I realized that my family was not like other people’s family. My folks always fought, yelled or cried. Whenever something was wrong at home I would fantasize. I had made up my...

    once upon a time I wanted to be an English teacher, once upon a time I wanted to be a magazine editor... Any of those. All crushed. I realised how stupid I was.

    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. =)

    Movies

    Movies are my favorite. They are all about people doing amazing things:becoming famous, being leaders, falling in love or discovering other worlds; kinda like at Disney World. They lift your hopes up really high and then they crash because I still haven't done any of those things...

    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.

    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...
