TMB - Good luck. I, too, am trying to find a place to live. (Though my home life is really good.) I just... well, I just like the solitude, heh. Nothing against my family. I love them dearly.

Hannah - Please, please know that suicide is never the answer. I'm so happy you're still okay, and that you realized that, yes, people DO care for you. More people care about us than it seems, doesn't it?

I know that these kids... weren't on their right minds doing this. You can't be, to do something like this. I wish they'd realized that it wasn't just their lives. Especially when Adam killed himself almost a year ago. I would have thought that this kid would have seen how it hurt everyone so much. Unfortunately, it more egged him on.

People need to realize that it's not just their lives. It's parents, and siblings, and friends, and aquaintances. Grandparents, aunts, uncles. Whole communities that have to deal with this now. *sigh*

As for organising something...I'm not really in any position at the school to do so. Though, that's really no excuse, if you think about it. That's an idea, really. I'll think on that. Someone should do something. *nods*

Either way... I must say that THIS place is a little community, and I know I'd be very hurt and saddened if anything happened to anyone here, too.

Peanut - Ya know, it IS sad. Anytime it happens. But especially for kids. Unfortunately, it's the world we live in now, as scary as that is. I can't put blame on any one person. We can't know the whole story. This kid, did leave a note. But I have to think that it's about not being able to talk about it, really. That's why talking about things is so important to me. It's why I think people SHOULD reach out for help. And why I'm always ready to listen. You never know when that one 'little thing' will be the last straw in someone's mind.

Maybe I should kill myself, too, and take all of my knowledge and memories with me. Then Voltron will kill himself, too, because no Ai means no Anime Night. No Anime Night is a horrible thing to think about.

I just don't understand kids these days. I blame the emo trend.

That's not even funny to joke about.

Well, they're this way becaues of current and older generations, maybe.

And I DO say so. This is never a laughing matter. I find it offensive.

Then never see the movie Suicide Club. It'd probably make you cry or something. That movie is so messed up, it even had me disturbed.

It's not about that. A movie. It's about the fact that I was truly upset about something that happened, and you made a joke over it. That's what I took offense to.

Ugh... it is depressing, Sis. I used to talk to this kid everyday in class the past two years when i took Spanish... and the worst part is; when i went to the high school after college yesterday to see how Cathy (like a lil sis to me) and everyone else were doing, a train went by and the students outside just looked at it, not looking away or moving their lips... just... thinking about what happened...

So...I woke up today and...you'll have to excuse me, because this is really hard to talk about. Well I felt really cold. It was around 6:30 am or so, and I just felt such a chill. It turns out my blanket had fallen off of me and half way to the floor. I just couldn't move. I sat there, praying for the sweet release of death to overtake me; as the sweeping cold drew in close about me like the cold clasp of Death himself. It's so difficult to think about.

Peanut, I just want you to know that we're here for you if you need to talk. I remember one day...God I dunno if I can say this because it's just so painful...but...one day last week I burnt some toast.

I know how you feel, Peanut. This morning I woke up at 5am because the cold knocked me out of my slumber. I tried to get up to turn my space heater on, only to remember it was in the basement. Tears streamed from my face as I thought of the extreme distance I had to walk to go and retrieve my space heater. I decided it wasn't worth it, and cried myself back to sleep instead. When I woke up, my tears were frozen on my face. It was a terrible morning.

Damn, man. That's tragic. Do you also get that trapped feeling when you're watching television and a program comes on that you loathe with every fiber of your being but the remote control is more than five feet away from you so you have to decide either to stretch your body to unknown lengths just to get that rectangular module of power or sit there and endure the vast torture of a show that you would rather go through a route canal for 97 minutes and 23 seconds than watching?

Great to know that this thread is becoming more and more of a joke... and Spam filled.

Come on Jo Dawn! Everyone has problems that they need to express. Isn't this what this thread is for?

Right. But real problems.

Are you telling me... that those were real and true problems? No tongue in cheek humor, no sarcasm? If so, I'll apologise. But I highly doubt that.

Hey, back off. Humor is a good way of dealing with stress, ok?

Yeah, real problems. A real problem isn't when your boyfriend or whatever you want to call it goes out to the local store to buy a gallon of milk and he's gone for 15 minutes. I think this thread should be about real problems, but you guys...I just don't understand why you people complain about stuff that isn't even a big deal. Sure, sometimes it's better to talk about it, but it should at least be traumatizing to a certain extent. Like the one person whose friend got shot at the supermarket. Now that was worth it. You guys, however, Jesus Christ. Get some real problems to talk about.

(V-Damn,that was cold.)

Ohhkay...

Everyone calm down. I dont want my thread going all to hell.

I agree with everyone here. Yes, this is a place to talk about your problems, and humor is a great way to talk about your problems. But as Ai said, we gotta keep it under control.

And mods jumping at each other probly doesnt give other members that usual warm gooey feeling on the inside...


*hands some drinks around*

How about... school and homework?

I"m starting up my week off with a visit from my parents, and then I'm going to work out at the gym and get ahead on my homework. Writing teacher gave us about three pages of assignments, so I'll have plenty to do...
