    New and Improved

    Hello people of CC :o So it's been a while. I haven't been on since December of last year and let me tell you, that was the worst month of my life. I was extremely stressed and depressed.

    Things our parents told us

    Those little white lies that were told in order to motivate us to do or not do certain things. Or because they just didn't know how to answer certain questions. When I was really little, my mom told me that worms would grow in my tummy if I drank the bath water. To this day I have severe...

    It's my CC-versary. Party on.

    As of today, I have been on CC for one year. The day I joined was one of the absolute worst days I've ever experienced in terms of my anxiety/depression. I'm pretty sure I spent the majority of that night weeping uncontrollably for no reason. I am pleased to say that, this same day one year...

    Skittlepumpkin: Making dorky things kinda cute since just now.

    So my dad's getting married this weekend and he asked if I could sing a song of his choosing. Right away, I was sure of two things: 1. The song he chose would be from the '60s/'70s 2. The song he chose would be incredibly dorky. Sure enough, I was right on both counts. The song is called Love...

    Is age REALLY just a number

    So today is senior's day at my work, and I cannot tell you how many people have been grossly offended by my asking if they qualify for the discount. First of all, the senior's discount age here is pretty young; it's only fifty-five. Now, this has got me to thinking; people (women especially)...

    Intimidation

    I get REALLY intimidated by people around my own age. Like...they scare me O.o I feel a lot more comfortable around people who are older than me. Occasionally, I click with a person my own age and feel comfortable around them. Even when I'm in the chat lounge here; as soon as the room starts...

    A Different Kind Of Love

    I used to wonder what it was that really sets apart, in terms of showing love, Christians and those who do not know Christ. I know a lot of people who are not Christians who are very kind people, whom I have seen performing acts of love and kindness to those around them. Then it hit me; it's...
