Becky, I remember how tense I was for a while after a car accident. And every time I heard squeeling breaks it would be rather scary. It'll get easier eventually--just hang in there.

Thanks for the prayers about the job. Leonie, you're right--God's plan is always better than mine, anyway. ;) And hope that little one gets to sleep real soon.

I get to stay home today but have a lot to do... need to prep for my math test tomorrow, do some interpreting stuff, and get my NaNo words in. I haven't done anything yet today and I'm exhausted. :|

Ha lol I'd have to pay to go print it off somewhere probably...I have one friend that wants to read read it when it's done, and she has actually helped me with some of the school stuff.

Dizzy and headaches, the dizziness makes me feel nauseous. Plus add the pain I've been continuing to get for the last 3 months since the car accident. Ugh.

All I can do is push forward and fight.

Also pray for one of my aussie friends. He lost his mom over a month ago and he is not handling it well at all. :(
I'm sorry, I'm praying for you and your friend. Pain sucks. :( By the way, one of my sister's nicknames is Rebecky :D

Still not feeling well..? Sorry.

As for the rambling... If talking about it helps put it in prospective then by all means do so. Letting others know what bothers you helps us to know how better to pray for your well being.

Praying for all you Nano-bites, working so hard to sit in front of the computer all day, typing away. Keep it up. You can do it. :mrgreen:
Not really.

and, I try not to ramble so much, I feel like a nuisance
:| :|

Now listening to Selah while I write for NaNo... just hit over 8,000 words
You guys are doing way better than me. Haven't written a word since Monday. But I'm going HOME this weekend, so planning on finishing my homework early, so should have some extra time to write.

And I know EXACTLY how you feel. I hate, hate, hate telling people what's really going on with me. As a kid, whenever I was sick I would pretend I was fine... even puking my guts out in the bathroom, I would still say "fine" if anyone asked. This happened to the point where my mom thought I was some kind of superhero because I never seemed to care about anything, even if I was sobbing myself to sleep every night (which has happened more than once). So this last weekend I finally broke down and called her and poured out my heart. It made me feel SO MUCH better. At one point she said in a kind of wondering voice, "So... you are a human being!" Which made me laugh, but also made me kind of sad, because in all my eighteen years on the planet that was pretty much the first time I've actually shared my problems with someone close to me.

And now I'M rambling on, instead of doing my homework. It's so nice I'm going to go out to the Quad and lay on the grass while I do it. Yay for sunshine!

Thanks guys & gals.

Yeah, I tend to not ramble but then I usually end up blowing up or crumbling under. So at some point it comes out anyway.

oh and my friend Caitlynn named me Rebecky :mrgreen:

Don't ever feel like a nuisance here Becky, we've all had our moments and sometimes it feels like we might be burdening others, but it helps me get my mind off my problems if I can help someone or just listen.

I think you're beautiful too Tiara. Although the girl kind of resembles you, no one but you could fill your shoes!

I hope the little one goes to sleep soon Leonie! Maybe just tucking her in might work. It has to be scary for her though. But she might be feeling comfortable enough to start testing her boundaries.

I'm off to bed. I submitted my story. It's not very good but it's done.

Take care everyone.

Ah Darlin' Ivy I'm glad yOu broke down and talked to your mom but it breaks my heart that you've felt alone and isolated yourself so much!! Just know that if you ever need me I'm here. I love you!

Oh and Owamie is a little 4 yo orphan girl that Leonie and her family took in. She's been there since Sat. (short version long version is about 10 pages back) :D
