    Husband and I tried to go to a portugese place and never got there. We could not find the place for about a half hour. I started to panic, couldn't breath and started to gag. After my horrible incident we gave up and left. My husband was so mad at me and could not understand why...

    I Hope Nav Will Help!

    I envy people who have a decent sense of direction.  I think everyone fears getting lost once in a while - but when I'm outside my geographic comfort zone - I'm terrified of getting lost!  It's less stressful when I'm walking - but driving?  Yikes!  Not only do I have do...

    I Get Lost All the Time!

    I get lost all the time. I have a terrible sense of direction and have ever since I started driving, or at least that's when I noticed it. I can go somewhere 10 times and every time it's like the first. I get lost in malls! I hate going somewhere unfamiliar because it never...

    School Poem; Imitation Poem: The Poison Tree, I Pity Thee

    Yeah this is just a poem I had to write for school. We had to imitate a poem of a certain writer and I chose the poem "The Poison Tree" written by William Blake. I had pity with people: my pity, it did eventually end, I was angry with society: I kept it in, and grow it did so...
