Not sure if this is ok but I started a site for my mom who was diagnosed with terminal cancer in June. Please take some time to check it out. I'd greatly appreciate it!

I'm feeling less creative lately and am hoping to find someone to push me along and through it.

If you'd like to collab, please send me a message. I'm available ASAP.

What's the big deal?

I don't know where to start with this so I'm going to plug my nose and just jump right in.

When I log onto Pathetic, I come here to read people's works. To see what's going on in their lives, what they may be going through. I like to see what is giving them inspiration and maybe find some of my own. I log in to catch up with friends, because there isn't one person I've come across on this site that I wouldn't consider that, a friend. What I do NOT log on to see if my friends, my colleagues, bashing each other and their creative works. This is after all, a community.

We are all individuals. We are all entitled to our opinions, ours thoughts, our tastes. It is also these things that make us these individuals. If we all walked, talked, and thought the same way, Pathetic, and this entire world would be pretty boring.

I'm know what I'm trying to say but I don't however, have permanent stance on either side. Just some thoughts and feelings and my own opinions to convey with hopes to mend some wounds and create a little peace.

I, by all means, support the freedom of speech. But sometimes, there are times when maybe we should bite our tongues. I am still learning self control when it comes to just saying whatever I want, so, go ahead, throw your stones. With that being said, if you don't like someone's work here, maybe you should use the old stand-by, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". I know some people want their work critiqued and some people frankly, have it coming sometimes. Just think before you leave comment or rate a piece poorly, maybe this person is going through something. Maybe it's better if you send your opinion to them privately.

On the other side, are the ratings here so important? Is so and so's comment really going to make or break you or the piece you wrote? I know that I've written pieces I've poured myself into, that were emotionally trying to get out. Pieces that I wanted to do well, that I wanted comments on, to help me for whatever reason. And you know what, they've received no comments at all. They've collected dust. It's always the pieces I hate that get the recognition. I don't go around taking out my bitterness on other people's works. I suck it up and keep on writing. Some of us need to have tougher skin.

The bottom line and the point I'm trying to make is this, we are all equals here. No one is really any better than anyone else here and shouldn't make others feel that way. Point number two, write for you. Not for anyone else, on this site, or anywhere.

I admire every single person here. I respect every single person here...and I support every single person here.

Now, I know I made no sense and that's alright with me but can we please just hold hands and sing Kum Bah Yah?

i'm not ready to make nice...

I don't know exactly what I want to say to you. I'm not sure if I even do have anything to say or if I should save my time and effort. I can tell you that it's been a long time coming.

Over the years I have written to you. Sent your Christmas cards and recent pics of myself. My letters have gone unanswered and my cards have been received with no gratitude.

I don't know what I did to you as your granddaughter to make you end your relationship with me. And if it was something that my parents did, well, that wasn't my fault but yet you still felt the need to punish me. An innocent child barely responsible for my own actions, let alone those of others.

I don't care what your excuse is. Because it's just that, an excuse. But there are many forms of communication and over the years you could have taken any one of them to get in contact with me, your granddaughter. Communication is a two way street in case you didn't know that after all your years of life.

But, for you to send me a friend request on Facebook after all this time is simply pathetic. It's utterly appauling to me that you can go years without trying to communicate with me, not even just to say hey or see what was going on in my life, but can send me a request over the internet.

Is that the Christ-like thing to do?

can someone help me? i've seemed to jump on board the band wagon...kinda...

the book was an amazing escape for me during my time of crisis and re-invention. however, i thought the movie was terrible. i could have adapted it better.

and now with new moon, the movie was good, except for the ending and now, i'm working on the book...

but seriously, is this healthy?
