    In a lot of ways this site has given me

    different ways to view life. At one point in time this site was a place where I felt like I could honestly speak my mind. It was a friend when I needed one. I found this place by accident and I am honestly grateful it exists. When I felt like venting, yelling, rhyming, or just...

    2nd Anniversary - Cottoning On

    I wrote my first blog on the 15th of February 2010, and I’m feeling a bit maudlin.  Two years!  I’ve been a bit boring.  Same moniker, same slightly outdated sketch of me, and no secret personalities.  I made some mistakes at first, this being my first proper social...

    Yes It Has, But.......

    When I found EP I was a lost soul and during the last almost 2 years I have found my self and taken steps never to get lost again.  Now the issue.  For my first year on EP it was such a large part of my life.  I have moved many of the things I have learned on EP...

    It's Amazing

     I have so many negative memories and feelings inside me...but as I share them here, I sort of get alienated from those bad things...I kinda become an outsider and I am suddenly able to analyze my writings rationally. Typing sort of transfers my anxiety away from me on EP. I...

    Not a Shot In the Dark

    I have found that I love to roam around EP, everyday at least twice (and yes I still go outside). Have shared my stories, found companions and some really really nice people that have offered advice, made me smile and overall made me feel like I'm not alone. I'm not the only one...

    Ep has helped me remember

    that there are many caring people in the world. People who want to help, who care no matter what their past. I'm not saying I specifically came here for a sense of wanting, but I definitely feel wanted now that I have found other people who show that they care no matter who you...

    And Again...

    3 years on EP woot woot. These days, I confess, I’m doing it less due to loss of EPfriends, so Me and Meebo are no longer connected at the fingerhip.  I pop on and off to post stories, read a few bits, learn some stuff; keeping it ticking over.  But that’s alright.  I’m...

    A Bit

    In many ways, I have learned so much about myself and others. I have made such wonderful friends who have been there for me when I was so suicidal.
