    Too Emotional?

    I sometimes wonder if I get a little too emotional about certain subjects. Subjects like religious intolerance. Or intolerance of any kind. But I don't really think so. People have to get emotional about this subject, mainly because so much hangs in the balance. People are...

    A Crush

    I have this crush on a guy across the street. I have and never will do anything about it and never even told anyone except my freind. It just surprises me that I am old and can still have a crush.

    If I Feel - I'm Alive

    When I was growing up I used to keep a lid on my emotions. I never let them run around, show up unexpected to ruin the party and such. Sometimes it was helpful, but sometimes it was in the way of normal interaction with people. You could never tell how I felt or what was on my...

    Resentment

    This is not right but I am resentful of this lady that I have been working with on a project. She has a beautiful house, 2.5 kids, she doesn't have an outside job and her husband is very good looking and provides well for his family. She has a tiny waist and no one would ever...
