    So I have a lot of stupid crap going on right now.
    I am stuck at home, bored, during Spring Break.
    When I am stuck at home, bored, there’s this….girl….who lives inside of me. I call her Silver. Basically, Silver represents my inner anger and doubts and rage.
    So when I am stuck at home, bored, Silver tends to roam free. I’m always in the presence of my little brothers, who annoy me to my death. Silver will kind of possess me and will rage beast at their faces and gets really worked up and tough. And then I get in trouble. I love Silver a lot, but I really don’t want her to roam free.
    I also am trying to figure out if I’m bisexual or not. I don’t think I am, but I just…feel something there that I think I’m denying myself to even think about, because I’m not sure if I feel that way or not….ugh. It’s just really confusing.
    And then I have this other friend…let’s call her Viperglimmer for the sake of this and not naming names. She will be super nice to me, and then be all like, ‘hey, sorry, my mom said we can’t be friends anymore’ and acts super mean. And other times she doesn’t even do that; she just ices me out! And then she goes back to being nice! She’s always like, “super sorry i said what i said, can we go back to being friends, if my mom doesn’t find out it should be fine’ and I always say, ‘I guess’. I’m in a really toxic relationship with her and I want to let it go, but she’s also a good friend and i don’t want to hurt her feelings by saying I don’t want to be friends.
    I’m also dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety right now, which might lead into depression and fear and even more stress and anxiety.
    I know I sound really pathetic and a baby right now, but this is one of the only places I can talk about my feelings openly and have people encouraging me. I know it also probably sounds really whiny and complain-y right now. It’s just nice to have a spot to rant and ask for help.
    Sorry that it’s super long, just have a lot of stuff going on right now.

      When you’re starting to feel angry, close your eyes and count to ten. Sounds basic but it might help. Just take deep breaths. If possible, leave the room for a minute or two, and come back when you’re more collected.

      Viperglimmer does sounds like a toxic friend. I recommend just cutting her off next time she “can’t be your friend.” If she comes back and is like “let’s be friends again!” you have full right to say something like “Friendship isn’t only when it’s most convenient.” because it’s not. She should be your friend 100% of the time, or none.


    • March 31, 2020 at 11:09 pm

      Hugs! Viperglimmer isn’t the best of friends. Maybe tell her that you need a week (or as long as you need) ‘off’. You would take a break and see when that break is over if you really miss her or not. If so, then talk to her about it. And, if not, tell her that you might need to not be the best of friend, but just friends. Hope that helps, <3

      You are not a baby.
      This is the almost the same thing that happened to me.
      Do not let Viperglimmer or anxiety get to you.
      Otherwise, you will fall down the slippery slope of depression and feeling worthless.
      I know this because I’ve been there.
      Do not let them get in your way.

      Heya, maybe try listening to some upbeat music ? Or honestly, a big tip is have a good cry. Crying might not seem good but honestly it helps you let it all out. Maybe you could do some art, or read a book, or watch you favourite tv show

      You’re awesome, and deserve to be happy ! Hugs from me !

  3. March 31, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    I gotz da period and really awful cramps.

    This is real love.

    • March 31, 2020 at 11:13 pm

      Ouch! Cramps can be no fun. My mom uses Young Living Essential Oils and they help with my sister’s cramps. They tend to be a little bit pricey, so any kind of oils will do. Hope that helps <3

      P.S. I like your avatar.

      Oh gosh cramps are so awful ! Hugs to you, maybe try a heat pad if you haven’t already, funnily enough exercise can help as well sometimes, just make sure you have enough pads because I find for me it sometimes increases flow

    Another week filled with craziness.
    Craziness out there and craziness in here.
    But we are here. We are together. We are still trying to reach out, even if it is limited.

    We WILL get through this ya’ll. Even if it will take some time.
    We got life worth living.

    Here are some songs I have to share with all of you. I found the Artist’s youtube channels, so if you want to go support them, go on ahead.

    Dolly Parton’s Get to Livin

    Newsboys’ God’s not Dead

      I love God’s Not Dead. The movies, not so much. But the song is great

      This is real love.

    i’m really really upset rn because i do a lot of theater and because i’m a good actress but like an ok singer i always get that medium role with a decent amount of lines but no real solos (or even smaller). however, this year, my theater program was doing alice and wonderland and i tried out for alice because i think i fit that role well. and somehow i actually managed to get the part. this was like a huge deal to me, because i’m really passionate about theater but i never get large roles and finally i had my big break. but of course corona virus means that my play is cancelled which is super upsetting and i feel like crying because this is my first lead role and i was SO excited. sorry for ranting i just really needed to talk about it.

    tl;dr: i got the lead in a musical for the first time ever and i was really excited but the show got canceled because of covid-19

    idk man

    So I have this friend I’m gonna call Antstorm. We’ve been friends for a long time. Recently (well not recently but it’s just the most prominent now) she’s been calling me a lot. Now this usually wouldn’t be a problem, it happens and friends should talk to each other on the phone. But it’s every day. and I’m not sure how much longer I can do this. Now this may seem overdramatic but I have my reasons. 1. I am an introvert and in my free time I like keeping to myself. A conversation here and there isn’t bad but when it’s on and off phone calls for 6 hours lasting 20 minutes or more you can see where I’m coming from. 2. We have online schooling now so I knew that Antstorm would call me more, but I didn’t expect it to be the one thing I worry about every single day. I get stressed if a conversation with her ends on a ‘bad note’ or without anyone saying goodbye. But you see Antstorm cuts off the phone if I say one tiny thing that rubs her the wrong way and then I get extremely stressed out trying to call her back when she keeps declining 20 times over (that did happen once). It feels like I’m walking on eggshells. After online schooling I just want to relax. 3. It’s made me afraid of my phone. Essentially. Whenever I am away from it I worry that Antstorm will call me and every tiny noise I worry that it might be a buzz. She hates it when I don’t pick up the phone, even if there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for it. And yet she’s allowed to ignore all my calls and I’m not allowed to be annoyed at her for it. I hate being worried about this all the time. I nearly broke down crying just a few minutes ago. 4. We talk about nothing. It’s her ranting about stuff I don’t care about for 15 minutes then the rest of the time she earrapes me or screams at her phone while she’s playing her game. And I’m still not allowed to leave. Yeah, I have to ask her if I can leave and then she guilt trips me into staying. This is an everyday thing by the way. 5. I can’t ask her to call less. She will get so mad if I do and that will kill my stress. She’ll not want to be friends anymore. I don’t want that. Also I can’t say no to her. It’s awful. When we were at school I noticed that she kept using me to get her stuff. This actually is a recent thing and I don’t like this. If this carries on I’m going to burst. 5. I just want to stop stressing about her all the time. But I feel like at this point I can’t even when I’m not talking to her. I just want it to stop. She is the only one of my friends to do this. My other best friend Sunheart doesn’t do this, and although we may talk to each other less it doesn’t affect our friendship in any way. I need help. I can’t keep doing this everyday. I started doing phone strikes so that she’ll call me less but it doesn’t work. Since quarantine, I’ve been forced to talk to her every single day except last Thursday. I dread every time my phone rings. every time. I need advice, something that will work, please.

    Hope is a good thing.

    • April 1, 2020 at 10:35 pm

      She’s controlling your life and emotions, that’s not okay. It’s toxic.

      Feel free to one day just turn your ringer off or something and ignore all her calls. If you end up talking to her and she hangs up because of one little thing, relax and wait for her to call you back. If you want some peace and quiet, don’t ask for permission to end the call. She doesn’t control you.

      Do what makes you comfortable, she’s making you miserable and she doesn’t have any right to do that.

    I worried and stressed out about a lot of things. Mostly e-learning and financial issues my family many have. I feel like my head is going to explode.

    I’m sad and trying to figure me out. I’m weird and don’t really fit in. I’m trying to figure out if I’m lesbian and everything feels wrong. I need hugs.

      Hey Raven,

      You absolutely fit in here! Don’t worry about being “weird” – this whole site is chaotic and eccentric and that’s why so many people love it <3

      As for being gay, it's okay. I know it can be alienating when you feel different from your peers - I certainly felt scared and confused in middle school when I realized I wasn't straight. Sometimes, we internalize the negative feelings that other people have about our identity and sort of keep them inside. It's something a lot of LGBT people go through, and I'm sorry if you're having a hard time trying to get away from other people telling you it's wrong. But I promise you're okay. There's nothing wrong with being LGBT+ - most of us are 🙂 and we care about you just the same no matter how you identify

      If you want to talk anything through about your identity, I'm always here, having been through that journey myself 🙂

    I’m way past the age I can start gymnastics, but I really regret never doing it. I want to learn how to do a cartwheel and handstand but I’m afraid because my body isn’t little and new that I can’t learn it and it’s too late😖
    I want to learn it and I want my body to be flexible, but I’m afraid it’s too late.

    I’m just sick of being one of my only friends that can’t do a single gymnastic move.

    • April 1, 2020 at 10:36 pm

      It’s never too late to start!

      Yeah, you’re going to be behind everyone else, but don’t let it get to you, use it as motivation to keep going forward.


    • April 2, 2020 at 12:26 am

      It’s never too late to learn gymnastics. As a gymnast myself, I started at a young age, and i was always small and flexible. But recently my body has been changing – i’ve been growing more and losing my flexibility. this is actually my worst fear, losing what i take most pride in, but i found out that being taller makes me more powerful, and i can swing more and tumble harder. as for flexibility, the only way to get more flexible, and to maintain it, is to stretch. even though (not if 😛 ) it’s painful. Find videos to learn from (but stay safe at home, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem to learn basics though), or take classes at a gym near you. I know that the sport and community that I’ve loved so much for the past 9 years of my life will accept you, and it’ll teach you so much about pushing through fears and persisting in tough times. also you’ll be working out too 😉

    I just kinda need some hugs because i found out that one of my favourite teachers died of leukaemia this week, we all knew he had been battling it for a while but even though he was past retiring age he still came back to teach us until he just go too ill 🙁 he was honestly such a cool guy and me and my friends had a joke with him about how to pronouce adélie penguins, and we’d often chat with him at breaks and stuff even before he became our chemistry teacher

      Oh, man… I’m so sorry! He must’ve really loved you, not in a weird way, he was probably really friendly. You were lucky to have a teacher like that in your life, Lionfire.

    As most of you know, Christoper C. Cuomo (known as Chris Cuomo to most) tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. I gotta say that hit me really hard. That guy’s my idol, and him testing positive is pretty shocking. I was watching Prime Time on CNN last night, and he just looked so BAD, it’s sickening. I think I need more than just one hug at this point. :'( And to think of all the stuff like suicide, addictions, etc., that come with this isolation stuff, it’s crazy. He kept on saying last night it was better him than us. That touched me.

    To conclude, let’s just say COVID-19 brought a hero into my life and destruction. Thank you.
