"I'm afraid I'm going to LOSE the only relationship I've ever had because....I can't stop acting like my MOTHER!"

I did lose this relationship.  he broke up with me less than 2 weeks after i made this card.

i know you're not supposed to "own up" to your secrets, but I had to because it came true and i'm not scared any more, now i am just depressed as hell and i really wish both he and i could forgive me.

Oh! I'm very sorry to hear that. It's interesting to see the 'end'(?) of that secret. Though, I hope it's not the end. I hope he does forgive you.

"I am a terrible artist despite my bachelors degree in fine arts"
Oh, how do I respond? With a book, hows about. First of all, feel really lucky to have received this card. I completely sympathise. I am a digital art major, and I love art, but I'm digitally inept Tongue That said, I feel this point is way more important: YOUR CARD IS FRIGGIN BEAUTIFUL!! Girl, seriously, this card. is. friggin. beautiful. SO, while I understand where you're coming from, I'm also gonna take it with a grain of salt!
Is it possible you just think your art is terrible because you're looking at it in the wrong context? For example, I thought my animations were total crap because the only animation I'd really been exposed to was ren & stimpy and anime, both of which are quite polished and built for TV and usually have a really tight plot and point. But as it turns out, there's a whole world of people who animate less "professionally" AND draw weird like me... and that among them my own work kind of fits in pretty well Smiley
I mean, based on the card you sent me, it seems immediately apparent that you'd be great at ATCs (Believe me when I say I think the two sewn on bits of this post card are among my favorite pieces of little paper art to date!) and therefore you could probably make awesome cards and journals and paper crafts.
Also, if by some chance this secret is like, the BEST thing you've ever done!!, you also have the dawning age of the amateur-esthetic to look forward to! There's definitely a trend leaning towards "bad" or "child like" art. 
Sorry to ramble. I wish I could call this sender up and talk to them for an hour or so, and I'm the one who sent in the phone anxiety secret!!  Sigh. If you want a huge ego boost, I have one waiting her for you, sender.


"I WILL (probably) ALWAYS LOVE YOU (Just a little bit!) (PS: Yes this picture is actually relevent Smiley)
The picture is a plant, I wish I knew more botany so I could decode this image! My immediate thought was that my boyfriend's name is "Cale," much like the bitter icky vegetable, and that maybe your loved one has some kind of plant related name. Or maybe you love this plant? Or maybe your loved one gave you this plant? I'm so curious! This card gave me the warm fuzzies and something fun to think about
PS: I like your sensibility with the "probably" and the "just a little bit." Smiley


"Some of my BEST FRIENDS are over 65 years old (I'm 23!)"
Aw, this makes me so happy. I hate age barriers, and I love hearing about older peoples' lives.


"I still have that dream. I just don't think it's realistic anymore."
Yeah, I hear that. I guess sometimes it's good to re-evaluate dreams and resize them so you can still get joy out of them, but also have a life that is satisfying and outside of the dream realm.


"I live next to a trailer park. If anything ever happens over there the thought that goes through my mind is "they're just stupid trailer trash" then I feel bad because that's the first thing I think"
Hah! Aw. I may or may not relate. I try so hard not to judge. But yes, sometimes, things come to mind and it's good to admit that we think them even if we feel bad about thinking them!


"I love to bake!"
mmm Send some my way!


"I have been taking lessons for two years now. I don't think I am any much better but I don't want to stop because I really like my teacher."
This is too cute. I hope either a) your teacher is available (and that's an appropriate relationship) or b) you like your teacher as a friend and it's just fun and happy and yay. It's a sweet card, no matter what though.


"I think you're adorable and sweet and funny. But I hate that I'm not pretty enough for you. How can you be so shallow? But let's face it... you don't even really know how I feel about you..."
Awwww. What can I say? Maybe just say something! Like "HEY! I THINK YOU'RE AWESOME!" I've actually done that before, and -holy crap- it actually worked!  Maybe their not actually shallow... but putting up a shallow front to look cool (I guess that's still kind of shallow...?) Sigh. I guess my impulse is to say, may as well talk about it! Not much to lose, at least that I know about Smiley PS: your card is also really quite beautifully shiney!

Well, since it obviously provided you with so much entertainment and thought I thought you deserved an answer lol. The plant is an Aspidistra, it's a reference to the George Orwell book 'Keep the Aspidistra Flying'. The relationship between the two main characters is kind of like how I saw our relationship turning out (although as it stands the relationship will never come to fruition so it will remain a theory). Plus the person I wrote this has similar literary tastes to me, and Orwell is a topic we discuss often.
Also, I didn't just want to write 'I will always love you' because that was a bit too cheesy love scene/simplistic for something I knew was bizarre from the start, hence the rationalising.
On a side note, my cousin is named Kale ... I should ask my Aunt whether she put the K there to differentiate him from the bitter vegetable a little lol.

Oh, yes, thank you, that was a very satisfying reference! (I knew I was onto something! Tongue)
(also, I think the vegetable is spelled (spelt?) with a "K" and the BFs parent's gave Cale a "C" to differentiate- crazy interchangable letters)

I noticed this thread by the recent posts.

After seeing Freeloader I must comment.

Dear Freeloader,
 I am 23 and still live my dad. Since I'm the only one worker they call him the freeloader. But in todays society the more people in the house the better finacially. I've been critizcded about living with him since I was 18 because everyone hoped I would move. But being a parent doesn't stop when the kid turns eighteen. And I know many young adults who have had to move back in with thier parents because of outside forces (money, CPS, divorce). There's no shame in living with your parents after 18. It just means you get to be closer to them even longer.

God Bless,
Elizabeth

I think it says, "Because I hate America, I liked living in Germany". I think... plus that makes a bit more sense!
