    I Do

    The beginning of 2013 started on a sad note, I lost an ep friend (disappeared from the site), but I hope after this; it will be better, I hope I don't lose a lot of ep friends. On a good note; I still have my loyal, caring and supportive friends :-) I don't know what's in store...

    Feeling Like 2013 Is A Fresh Start From A Terrible 2012 Of Bad Juju

    I'm not sure if its just me, but lots of awful things happened in 2012. People were ill, I had people pass away under awful circumstances, drama & pain. Nothing seemed to go right. Not everything is 100% peachy now but I almost feel like something in the universe has switched...

    2012 Was A Welcome Relief

    I had suffered a lot and was relying on the world to end from all the scars in 2011 that left me weak and self-hating. Now I am confident in my abilities and optimistic about life enough that I did not fear December 21, 2012 at all (although I was already betting it would be an...

    Let's Hope So

    2012 wasn't the best year. Nothing too bad, but nothing too good too. My grades still suck, i'm still single, I still have dandruff and hairfall. I got a bad black pimple on my nose. God bless me. I need help. I still suck at everything in my life.

    It's Going To Get Better

    As 2012 is over and now we're in 2013 I hope this year will be a good one for me. 2012 was ok but nothing to great about it, so this year I promise myself I'm going to make it a good year for me and I'm going to take chances.Peace

    Are You Serious?

    Ok, by January 4th of 2013 within a twelve-hour time span, the love of my life left me and then my uncle died. So... maybe 2013 is getting all the **** out of the way first? I certainly hope so! I have a job interview tomorrow and am praying that this is where this f*****-up...

    I've been in a personal year cycle in 2012 in which I seem scattered and not all together there and I definitely see that (struggling with depression and loneliness as well as towards independence). The 2013 personal year cycle I'm headed into is about the family. It is also...
