    It was the best of times,

    it was the worst of times. I feel like an EP grandma. Back in my day, anons were purple, dontcha know?! The reactions worked correctly in confessions. Gestures were free. We could have pets for God's sake. I had a roach named Roachel. An homage to MyNameIsHurl. She was my first...

    My First Ep Friends

    It was November 2008. I didn't know what to expect here in EP. I tried commenting on a story and then found myself creating my own stories. Fallenstar and Chel were my first friends. They were both really nice to me. They encourage me to try to do things that I can not do and...

    December 2007

    I was so lost, back then. I was so lonely and trapped in the wrong crowd, being used and abused. It all started with one lonely night... I was sitting in a dark room, using my sister desktop, tears falling on the keyboard. My family was asleep and it was really late, around 3am...

    Stumbled In By Chance

     And it's never been the same since! It hasn't even been a year! It was sort of like getting off of the bus at the wrong stop and ending up having a great time anyway.  It has been a great adventure and I have had few regrets ever since.

    The end of 2010. I was googling depression

    and came across a suicide note that turned out to be an anonymous confession on this site. I was shocked and curious. I saw a lot of "go ahead and do it" comments. I wondered what the hell kind of site this was. I looked over other confessions and saw the variety. Actual...

    Thank the Goddess It Was Here!

    I was confused and troubled.  I had no one, I thought, that I could just talk with, no one who would understand what I was going through.  I was falling in love with someone I thought it was wrong to fall in love with.  But there it was.  There I was. ...

    No Clue

    I had nooo clue what I was getting myself into when I first came on EP. Nor did I know what I was doing. I found EP entirely by chance (Thank You Google!) and was intrigued by, of all things, the Confessional. That first night, I didn't even think about the concept of a Circle of...
