    people who seem too good to be true

    Ever met someone who you felt was the epitome of wise, collected, and put together? Someone who always has the right thing to say, who is open-minded, understanding, intelligent, and easy to get along with? What do you think of them? I'd like to know because I'm having some conflicting...

    When you try to get someone's attention and they brush you off....

    how do you deal? I went shopping tonight after work and met a guy I work with, and we started walking around the store together. Then I saw an acquaintance that I talk to sometimes in class and I guess I was feeling confident because I wasn't alone, so I looked cool, lol. I call his name out -...

    Oh my God...

    I was reading my psych book for a test and it said that statistically, artistic people are eighteen times more likely to commit suicide than the rest of the population and they're eight to ten times more likely to become depressed and ten to twenty times more likely to be bipolar. I mean...

    So I picked up my art supplies again

    After a a really long hiatus, I finally decided to start drawing again - I finished a charcoal drawing that I started about 6 months to a year ago. It's a portrait of Jane Lane from Daria. I'm going to redo her ear cause it looks like sh-t:

    Why sometimes company in misery is ok.

    So I ended up going to the after party at work. I was gonna bail, but my friend ended up working that night, and she was feeling worse as the day wore on so I wanted to cheer her up - I made her some fake blood to wear, and brought a song for the DJ to play, that I knew she wanted to hear. By...

    *gasp!* A poem!

    I found a folder of poems I had to write during my poetry class and came across one I liked and I remember my class liked it too, so I'm posting it here: The One-Man War Sharp metal to porous flesh: like key to lock of no man’s land, where war discharges from closed trenches to open air; to...

    I need your help!

    You guys need to convince me to go through with Halloween night at work. I just tried out my Sweeney Todd costume and it's so f-cking cool! It's just that it's really elaborate - clothes, accessories, makeup, hair, fake blood. So being socially anxious, I'm having second thoughts like "What if...

    What should I be for Halloween?

    We can dress up at work and I'm trying to decide. I wanted to be something really cool like Bambi's mom or Pocahontas if her father hadn't halted the axe...but I work around kids so that might not be appreciated. So then I wanted to be Daria, but not very many people I work with know who she is...

    Holy f-ckballs, I am so pissed! #$%!$%#!$#[email protected]!!!

    I just need to let off steam, you guys don't have to read it all or respond, but thanks a million to those who do cause it's a novel. Work was going pretty well until about 20 minutes before close (9:40 pm), some people walk in and ask if they can eat. There's 17 of them so my coworker tells...

    I'm so embarrassed...just a story

    At work tonight, someone asked me to get him some sriracha (chili) sauce and as I was bringing it to him, I noticed it needed to be shaken up. So I shook it without checking if the lid was closed and it sprayed directly into my eyes. So I had to rush into the kitchen and the manager, the...

    Consoling people

    Anybody else have problems with this? I always feel weird when people talk to me about their problems (unless they're angry about something) or start breaking down in front of me. On one hand, I really like and want people to confide in me but then I never know what to say to make them feel...

    When you post on a forum...

    and a bunch of people (or even one person) don'/doesn't agree with you and start getting kind of mean, how do you feel about it? Do you get defensive and reply back? It's only happened to me a few times cause I try to be careful about my words but I always end up feeling like a bad person or...

    Have people ever told you to relax when you thought you *were* relaxed?

    Just wondering how common this is cause it happens to me a lot at work. I have customers and coworkers telling me "It's ok, just relax, everything's fine" and it catches me completely off guard cause I'd be thinking "I AM ok right now" I think after years and years and years of having SA, I've...

    I need to vent.

    Thank you to anyone who actually reads all of this. I just got off my first waitress shift - I wanna cry, but I can't. I wanna get back into my cutting habit, but I'm controlling myself. I don't drink, but I really want to. I mean, I absolutely cannot STAND the smell of alcohol or the taste...

    Which references do you put on your resume(s)

    I'm really curious - I had to start working for my old boss again because I wasn't finding new work, and my resume doesn't have anybody listed anyways, except for my bf, who luckily worked with me so I could genuinely call him a coworker and just not mention our personal relationship. I've...
