What does everything think of the new upgrade to GA? Myr and I were joking that the new font size was easier for us as we grow older Pretty soon, you might see this font which will be beneficial for both of us
Good Day Everyone!
Now don't worry, I'm sure we will have virtual screens by the day that we need this, no monitors or physical screens any more. Hey, that might be a story idea thinking how technology could improve older peoples lives. Now that I think of my dad trying to us
Well, this is the last day of freedom for me until sometime in June. I get to start high school, and Im actually not that bummed out about going back to school. I think it's going to be fun and exciting to be in my last 4 years, but I kinda wonder what the parties are going to be like. It's gonna be weird because for the first time since 3rd grade I wont be going to the same school as my bf and all or our freinds.Anyway, last night me and Taylor saw the summer off the right way. We sat up all ni
So it seems to me that the battle of the rabbits will carry on for another day. Though normally I wouldn't join in some stupid kid fight, today I was forced to do something I'm not proud of. The three hellspawns left me a flaming bag of poop on my doorstep. Now look I'm really not that naive that I would actually step on the bag to put it out. I sprayed it with water and scooped it up.Next as I tried to leave my house once again I was pelted with what looked to be seeds. So I went inside and ca
Ever feel that general feeling of dissatisfaction, like you can't overcome basic obstacles? I'm feeling that way...not about my own life, but about the US. I think that comes from living through the 70's...high oil prices, rotten foreign policy, hated by the world.Seems that we're getting there again. Gas prices have doubled in the last year, and will likely go higher still. We're engaged in a war that looks more and more like Vietnam every day. And now we have this hurricane that makes us

Well, this weekend was crazy. My aunt and my two cousins, both boys, aged 13 and 15 came to visit. They just went home today, and it was nice seeing them, but they managed to make me crazy. I love my family to bits of course, but it doesn't mean that I agree with them all the time. My aunt's my really cool aunt that I came out to first, but that doesn't mean that I can't completely disagree with some of her parenting decisions. And I know I don't have kids so it's not my place to criticise how s
I got a PM last night from someone who I thought was being really cool. I won't say the persons name here, but if they read it, they'll know who they are. Anyway, I was having trouble getting into live chat, and this person sent me a pm giving me ideas about how to get in. Finally, I got in and it took about 5 minutes for the ambush to begin, so I played along. I didn't realize that what was discussed in the soapbox was going to be used against me in live chat, but I soon found my self fighting
I know, I know, this is two entries in one day, but I'm bored and I thought I'd see if anyone would answer this.1. Who are you? 2. Are we friends? 3. When and how did we meet? 4.

I hate football season, because this city seems to lose its collective mind. There's a Pitt/Notre Dame game tonight; my roommates are going and I'm under orders to watch it on TV (more on that in a second.) There are all these commercials on TV about how "college football is family." Er, right. I can't stand football, because I can never follow what's going on. I see the ball go up in the air, a bunch of people run around like mad, and end up in a pile. I'm going "who has the ball, who has the
Well, Tuesday is the day my highschool carreer officially begins...lol...well, they called it a carreer at orientation. Im really excited about starting highschool, but Im kinda bummed out about going to magnet school. Im gonna miss my bf a lot. We've been going to the same school since 3rd grade and now we're going to be in different highschools. He has to go to the highschool where all of my freinds get to go, and I have to go to the one where all of the nerdy kids go. I guess it's kinda my da
I have an annoying neighbor problem. My neighbor has three boys who she spoils and they seem to get everything they want. This morning I saw them bring in a pair of white bunny rabbits. My first thought was that they were going to kill the rabbit and I flashed back to when I was a kid and that bugs bunny cartoon comes on when Elmer Fudd sings, "Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit." These kids are terrible and they have been known to turture animals. So I aske dtheir mother if that was a good idea t
Or, on school dances; a misanthropic perspective.So, yeah, I have friends. Believe it or not. And so, since they're forced to eat the nasty cafeteria food most of the time I invited them over to have pizza and junk food. And unfiltered internet access. And then a girl showed up so they couldn't discreetly download porn. hahahah. Living in a catholic dorm really really sucks. yeah, so then there was a dance. I have no rhythmic abilities. None. I can't even box-step to the waltz for gods sake. So

So something funny just happened to me as I googled my name. It led me to my first ever story Bitter and Sweet. It's pretty bad and I never finished it but it's cool to see where you started and how far you've come. It's quite interesting how it resembles my current stories and how it doesn't. I'm going to give you guys the link to it so that you guys can see it for yourselves.Bitter and SweetGreenP.S. I plan on rewriting this story and finishing it once and for all.
Do you ever get the feeling that something in your life is wrong and that it's casting a dark shadow on your existence. Well I found out that something just like that has been happening. A certain pest has been removed from my life today when it was found out. Now I look forward to bright days ahead. On a lighter note I absolutely love my new school and the people I will be studying with, including my teachers are awesome people. I love them.Green
:ranger: lol.....Well, if I haven't gotten on anyones nerves just yet, that all changed today when I made my first real oppositional post in the soapbox...I was reading these posts on this topic called The Agenda, and up until today, I was feeling what people were saying, then I read a post blaming the President for all kinds of problems that some people have in this country, and I couldn't stop myself from posting. I guess you can say that I have no patience for people who think that the gov
Well today was a the first blood drive for my school. My pre-idea that i wouldnt be able to give blood came true. It reminded me of a scene in a TV show.I was unable to give blood beacuase under FDA regulation if you have sex with another male, you can not donate blood. This sucked although i understand why they did it, it still descrimatory. At least it was confendetial when they did it.Jules
Hi all!Yes they didnt kill me in the hospital :DIve been put on some meds to clear the infection, its pretty mild by all accounts but they didn't want to take any chances and risk a lawsuit Im off work for the next week so at least ive got Jon to keep me company when Chris is working.Why is it you feel worse after having been in a hospital, I felt quite good when i went to see the Doc yesterday, then he signs me in and boom I feel like crap maybe its because theres nothing to do there but watc

I'm one of those older folks; I like the larger font a lot. I wish more sites did that.
Another nice feature is "Expand" in the quotes in the replies to a comment, because readers can get to the actual reply quickly without scrolling through long quotes.
Thanks for all you do to make the site better and better for the great writers and avid readers.
With the @ symbol with the Member Name to take someone to that member profile, I noticed it right away too. I started a topic in the Help Forum. Cia did some looking and I’m sure Myr will as well tomorrow. Then if needed they may include our programmer.
You do bring up a good point so I decided to give a bit more lengthy answer. If anyone notices something that might be a software bug, please click on the quoted link above, read the instructions and let us know
This has been a great week! The update to the site has been a great breath of fresh air, despite some lag issues earlier. Overall, it looks almost the same, but this update gave a newer feel!
A small note, though. I noticed the personal @ mentions on this post are a more pink-ish background and white font, while other personal mentions (say in a forum or comment) have a slightly darker tint of pink with red font. The mentions above in the Ask and Author and Blog Opportunities are a little
Great article! Thanks, Comsie! One of the hallmarks of good emotional writing to me is balance. Too much can make the story seem implausible or over the top, while not enough makes it as interesting as reading a phone book. Just the right amount makes me invested in the story and want to read more. I sound like Goldilocks
I'll get right on that signed copy! I think I'd like to get halfway into the second book before seriously looking at publishing options (Amazon, here I come?). I always look forward to your comments, wherever they may be. But, oh jeez...Nobel Prize? Bud...you might be shooting a little too high with the praise! I'm happy that I have your approval for ending Lits soon, and beginning the next step in the series!
I am all about the series!!! But you know that!!! I am all in! Publish this first book and start on the next!!! You know how much I love it! I loved Harry Potter. I've read the entire series a few times (ok SEVERAL times)! BUT I have read LitS more.... You probably won't believe me but have you noticed that it takes me longer to comment on a chapter? It's because I am going back several chapters and rereading to the current one. Sometimes on a "rainy" day I just sit down and read the e
You should be very PROUD!!! I am proud of you!! I am also deeply thankful, grateful, and many other "fuls" to you and Noah. You know my story (or at least part of it). It's been a long almost 2 years of solitude for me and you have both helped me so much!!! It is funny how a "little" werewolf story and the author, and a "little" journal and its authors have helped ease the isolation, brought me out of the shadows... 50,000 views...I wonder how many are mine...🤣
