    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...

    My "friend" was supposedly going to help me get

    my crush. She ended up getting him first. I hate her now. She says she "feels bad" but I doubt she does.

    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...

    First Female NHL Player Dreams

    I have loved hockey forever. my dad doesn't want me to play. He says hockey is a stupid sport. I love it though. My role model is Sidney Crosby. I said I would drop out of everything I never wanted to do. Which is everything! But he said no. It's not money, and it's no dangerous...

    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...

    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...

    One of my friends in the group sat next to me

    in the morning and then she asked if I knew this one guy I said yes... She didn't know he was my crush.... Apparently he asked her to be his valentine. I was so upset I didn't want to kill myself because it was a little over dramatic. But it hurt me and I was trying to get him...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Ever since I was younger I always wanted to

    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...

    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.

    A Dream To Fly.

    All my life, at least as long as I could remember, I've been intrigued by jets and aircraft. When I was 6 during a family trip to Perth, I had my first flight on an airplane. I remember being awestruck by its shear size and beauty, and the magnificent roar of the engines as we...

    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. =)
