The mommy one hits home. My mom is just now going back to college and all us kids are in our 20's. She said that she has never regretted being a stay at home mom and I am so grateful that she was able to do so.

Post by: dark.star.88 on July 07, 2009 10:27:27 AM
I think people realize that bisexuality/homosexuality is more common then anything.. I understand not telling the family though because most of the time they will take it out on themselves rather then just taking as it is... I had a gay friend .. and first she had feelings for me .. but then my Dad found out and then my Dad thought I was gay.. It made me hate my friend because I wasn't the one who had the feelings.. Which later it turned out okay.. she finally told her mom, and forgave me..  but to be honest.. that has to be a really hard thing to hold on.. but I'm glad you have people who do know.. like your boyfriend, and your friend because that really helps.. to have someone to talk to..

I sent my secrets today..  :D Im so excited! This has been so much fun so far.. its so relieving to write those things down on a piece of paper.. because its hard to hold things in sometimes and its like you're releasing it to SOMEONE..

I think it's funny we've got someone on each side of the motherhood debate.  (and I totally agree with both of them: it's sad that because women *can* have careers now a lot of people feel like it's not ok to be "just" a mom; it takes as much or more work than a normal career.  But if you don't want to be a mom, *especially* for selfish reasons, nobody should be forced into it...)

Oh, hon -- that's so much better than wanting children for the most selfish reasons.
We're not an endangered species. Child-free is a happy choice.

I can agree with both of these statements. Kids have never really been my thing.

I'm happy that secrets have started arriving. I haven't gotten any yet, I can't wait until they start showing. I think it's cool how it seems like there are some positive and some negative (for lack of a better word) secrets. :)

It never will be.

Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: beki710 on July 08, 2009 11:34:33 AM
I agree. People seem to always be shocked when I say I don't want children, I've known this since I was 15 and I honestly can't see anything that would make me change my mind. People try to conivince me otherwise and I often just think "you have your opinion I have mine, stop trying to influence me otherwise!!" I just don't tell people anymore because I can't be bothered with the arguement. So sender, you're not alone!

And for the one I posted - I think you still will have time to craft, I just think that the way you timetable your day will change. If you want to be ale to do something I think you will find a way to fit it in with everything else you have to do. Mothers still need relaxation time as well as everyone else, I think once you have your baby you will find out how much time you have spare to devote to crafting.

The college and marriage one - if your feelings are that strong I say go for it, just make sure it's what you both want.

And the gluten one - I'm exactly like that with dairy. I can't remember what proper chocolate tastes like - it used to be my favourite food.

Post by: raeonix on July 08, 2009 04:30:36 PM
When I was pregnant I thought I wouldn't have time to craft anymore, either. And for awhile, I didn't! But when my son was 4 months old I taught myself to crochet, and kept working on the cross stitch I started for him (that was supposed to be completed before he was born and still sits in it's basket, waiting for the end).

AND I'm a single mom! So don't worry. If you really love crafting, you will have time for it!

I think I just want to fit in.

On another note, I have received one and sent all 5. I've just lost my camera cable… I'll get pics up ASAP!

My sister believe it or not she was a cup size B.. and got fake boobs.. which angered me becuase i'm an A... So i was like omg I wish I was at least a B! So she got a C.. and now she hates them.. not really hates them but realized she really didn't think she needed them... So I always tell people .. you're the way you are soo accept it and appreciate it because eventually someone will come along and like the way you are .. I believe that because like I said before my boyfriend LOVES my small boobs.. hehe

I'm actually a big fan of my boobs. : ) Of course, I did gain a ton of weight my freshman year at college, and it all went to my boobs. I went from a A cup (which sucked because I could never find bras that fit) to a B (much easier time, though I wish I were a tiny bit bigger in the waist because they don't really make 30B bras, which is what I need. 32B fits just fine).

I'm always glad to hear when people actually like their bodies. It's a lovely breath of fresh air compared to what I normally hear.

I COMPLETELY understand the fat one... but I've discovered how much weight you lose and how bad you feel about your weight are directly proportional... lose more, feel more badly...


and I love the polaroid one...

I think people are inherently good though... that if they can become p.o.s. then they can go back... I have faith in that.

I knew you were gay before you did but I still would have said "YES"

I Love to spit off things

I Am Terrified of Aliens

Still say yes- I know how you feel... I REALLY do... :-\

Spit off things- cant say I've ever felt the need, lol but this one made my day!!! I like how you made the card also!!!

Knit rather then Sex- your card made me laugh, I'd had a conversation the other day about having a headache and having sex... perfect timing lol anyways, do what you want... if its knitting, then knit  :P

and Aliens- I'm afraid of them being out there... if they're violent... it might be cool if they were nice or something lol

Hi everyone! I have a couple of announcements:

1. Once again, if you have NOT sent, please pm BOTH myself and edwards1

2. Everyone should receive a total of five cards. Please pm ME when you have received all five.

3. Don't forget pictures! If you don't post pictures, I WILL make a note of it in your feedback.

4. Please do not scan/include the codes when you post secrets! Yes, it's possible to track down who sent what, but please do not make it easy to do so. This is supposed to be semi-anonymous. You can black out the code on MS paint or something or just not scan the back, or what have you.

Thanks, everyone!

This one wasn't pink, it just didn't photograph right.



It says: our receptionist doesn't speak clearly and she can't do anything by herself. She makes my work difficult by asking the same questions over and over again. And yet I don't want her fired because, for me, it would mean going back to the reception desk. I think I'm worth more than that.

Post by: Casey1201 on July 14, 2009 07:22:47 AM
I think the cat one is sweet. My dogs are my kids and my family has always cremated our family pets after their death. Sounds kinda weird but we were raised with our pets being indoors and sleeping right with us. They are family to me :)

The credit cards one is sad, yes it is your dad but you have to stand up for yourself at some point. This is affecting your life not so much your dad's.

I am not a Veg but I dont eat red meat, pork or anything of that sort. Just chicken and sea creatures. However, the veg bacon is delish and really does taste the same. I have also tried the turkey bacon and that is also a great subsitute.

I got back into town today and had FOUR secrets waiting for me!  Here they are:


It says "We were best friends for 13 years..."
the back says "at 16 yrs old I was raped.  You told me it was 'kind-of' my own fault.  (That's the day I started hating you)"


"I am counting the seconds until I never have to speak to you again."


Front: "Physically...you are so close...emotionally you are miles away from me..."
Back: "We go to the same university now...I think if you were to be in the same room as me I would throw up and run out crying..."


The card says "If only all the hands that reach could touch." And she wrote "I wish your hands had never reached me.  I still don't understand, why?"


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: juliel85 on July 14, 2009 02:08:10 PM

My mail finally caught up with me today! Here are the four I received.




"And my worst lie...I love you.      I'm a pathological liar...about the stupidest things...until I said I love you"


"I frequently wish my father was dead. I mean it every time."


"I hope you're in jail"



Tattoo says, "and this too shall pass"
"I keep trying to believe the tattoo artist didn't do this on purpose. As though '@$$' wasn't bad enough, in some shirts it says, 'hallpass.'"

ZOMBIE - I know some people who are crazy... and ar getting all prepared for zombies.. I think they are weird... I hope that I know how to shoot a shot gun whenever they come.. I'm so scared of guns my amazing boyfriend is trying to get me over that fear.. but I keep telling him it's not just as easy as showing me a gun, and putting it in my hand because I like start hyperventilating.. haha they scare the living crap out of me I don't even know why.. just don't like the feeling of something almost EXPLODING in my hand.

FRIEND FOR 13 YEARS - I know that has to hurt.. you always have those people you THINK are going to be there for everything, then they just turn their back on you.. I've had many friends do that to me.. now I'm discovering that I really don't need them.. I'm sorry she did that to you, but there are many people in the world that will be there for you more than her.. so it's okay to hate her for one thing she said... because she must have thought it before she said it! I just wanna give you a hug really, because it's NEVER anybody's fault to get raped... No.... means No... I don't even know the story, or anything, and I never been through it .. and I can't say I really understand it... but *HUGS*.. and remember there are a lot of people out there who need a friend who cares.. apparently that girl .. does NOT deserve your friendship..

I wish I could write like he did because he makes me believe in his writings. [on the back] but I'm afraid I'll never write anything even half as good as he.


I hate children. Keep your noisy brats away from me!

Writing - I honestly think that you can't know until you try. You could surprise yourself. Sometimes you can be your own worst critic.

Children - I completely understand. I hate kids with sticky fingers who feel the need to touch everything on my stall while their parents don't even care!

Dr Who - I wouldn't mind David Tennant appearing and taking me away!!

Gameboy - This secret is so amazingly made, all the games were in a slot in the back. My housemate apparently made her own paper tamagotchi when she was younger  :)

Cut along the lines
Since I cut my hair short, boys no longer see me as a potential girlfriend, but as a little brother they have to take care of.

I cant judge people by their groceries... I'm in the middle lol
I'll be buying stuff for a girls night and end up with a ton of junk food and a ton of veggies and ranch...

I recieved my last card yesterday, I'll post pics asap... I'm packing for my vacation (I leave my house at 4:30am) and I'll hopefully get a chance to post before I pass out. If not I'll post tomorrow night if I have internet access in my hotel room.

What's funny is, if I had received the Twilight one 3 days ago, I would have readily agreed. But 2 days ago, at 9:45pm, I decided to give Twilight a shot since my sister was insistent enough to lend the book to me and not take it back until I finished. At 3:00am, I finished the book, immediately went to Wal-Mart and bought the sequel and the blu-ray Director's Cut of the movie, then watched the movie until 5:30am. It's annoying that I like it so much, but I guess Twilight can't help that it fits my love of cheesy romances so perfectly.

doesn't like Twilight-- I haven't really paid much attention to the Twilight thing, but I feel pretty much the same way about Harry Potter.  The sad thing is that I read and sort of enjoyed the first few books, but I stopped after the 4th one because I didn't like the direction the author was taking the series, and I was really tired of everyone telling me how great the books were when I can list about 20 better-written children's fantasy books without even walking over to look at my bookshelf.   :-\  It's so hard to say, "Um, I guess it's ok," about something everyone else thinks is the best thing ever.

I am not a Twilighter either nor did I ever get into the Harry Potter thing. I dont know just not my thing.

The photography one: I couldnt have written this better myself. I love photography and do it as a hobby. Its a beautiful thing to be able to capture life like that.

@thanate please please list the 20 better written than Harry Potter and Twilight books :D

I am always looking for new books to read when I finish the HP Series again erm I mean when I am done with the exams for this year ;)

I'm patiently waiting for my last card to appear in the gallery. I so hope it made it to it's owner, cause it was by far my favorite!

Talking books, You might want to take a look at Stravaganza by Mary Hoffman (I personally love those books)


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: thanate on July 20, 2009 02:48:23 PM
pinkfeline--  heh.  Well, just about anything by Diana Wynne Jones (and that's more than 20 right there) but perhaps especially The Dark Lord of Dirkholm & Year of the Griffin.  Sherewood Smith's Wren books, and Court Duel (and there are a couple more recent ones I can't remember the titles of immediately...), Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles, Tamora Pierce has done some good stuff, Patricia C Wrede's Enchanted Forest chronicles... (and I'd better stop before we get too far off topic!  I was in a swap a while back where we got yelled at by one of the mods for getting into a long digression about favorite books...)

Anyway, scaramouche-- I haven't seen my favorite card yet either, and I can't remember who I sent it to...

Post by: raeonix on July 20, 2009 03:13:28 PM
I'm STILL waiting for cards, I hope they didn't get lost in my crappy post office. Waiting on 2 more. I also got addicted to the Twilight books and want to read them again, even though I hated reading the first one, I think they got better as they went on. The first one was just so repetitive and redundant, but I was desperate to read the rest! I hope she finishes the fifth book one day.


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: ifallthraindrops on July 20, 2009 06:22:58 PM
I totally agree with the Twilight secret, though I also think SMeyers is a teeeeerrible writer full of cliche and her characters are either annoying or creepy (Edward WATCHES BELLA SLEEP and STEALS PART OF HER CAR so she can't go visit a male friend. RED FLAG). I do have a deeeeep love for Harry Potter, though I fully acknowledge that A, she's not a very good writer and B, the series took a baaaaad turn right around book six. I think fame got to JK's head. She's a master plotter though. Many intricate details and everything means something. Amazing.

I mean... secrets. Post secrets. Shhh. : )


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: burntsmore on July 20, 2009 07:22:45 PM
I'm back from vacation and had two secrets waiting for me!

Front:

"I would rather spend time with my animals rather than my friends... any day of the week"

and the back says, "animals are just so non-judgmental and don't care if you haven't showered that day! :)"


(Yeah, my cat wouldn't leave me alone to take the pics and I haven't showered today!)


"Quitting is the hardest thing I've ever done"


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: KiwiDragons on July 20, 2009 08:17:26 PM
I can really relate to the animal card. Of course, my animals are my only friends, so I guess that's why.


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: gala_apples on July 20, 2009 08:40:23 PM
i'll second the diana wynne jones thing, and add that while the chrestomanci series is good (it's got this whole alternate universes thing) my favourite is probably archer's goon. that or homeward bounders. the pendragon series by dj mchale is also really interesting, and about book 7 i found myself literally shouting at loud at the characters.

heh, i'm actually currently wearing my 'terminus shirt' which was a harry potter convention i bussed to in chicago (25 hours on a bus, the day after someone was decapatated on a greyhound from my home town) i love the series, but i generally only read up to OOTP, because HBP starts the whole snape drama, and i hate him.

as for twilight, i think he's just a creepy man. and bella's a wuss, if she can't survive without him she can bloody well kill herself instead of moping for six months (i didn't finish that book, i don't do emo)

and to make this more secret related, i'd love the unconditional love of an animal, but i couldn't handle it dying years before i do, i saw how much it wrecked my best friend when he had to put his cat down.


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: ifallthraindrops on July 20, 2009 09:58:01 PM
I love my cats, but their love is DEFINITELY not unconditional. They're all quite moody, particularly the one that's actually mine (Little Bit). Very skittish, doesn't like to be held. And yet, perfectly sweet when you're in the bathroom. Until you try to move her or leave.

I worked at the SPCA during the school year and I often preferred to spend the hours there than with actual people. Even though I do have some awesome friends. : ) Point: I can relate.


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: stuckmachinic on July 21, 2009 12:38:22 AM
Twilight one - I just don't get it. I've read the first book and watched the movie and.. they're so boring! I love Harry Potters for example but Twilight is just... blah. But I don't really worry about not getting it ;D

And I agree with the animal secret. I love my cats more than my friends. Mostly because I don't really have friends, only some random people who I see sometimes. :(


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: Casey1201 on July 21, 2009 06:54:53 AM
I volunteer at the animal shelter here in town and I don't think I will experience anything more wonderful than helping the animals. My dogs are my kids basically. We let them crawl into bed with us and though he will never admit this, I sometimes catch my boyfriend baby talking to them :)

The quitting one, I know how you feel. I havent smoked weed in 5 years but during those years I did, I definitely made bad choices and one bad event coaxed me into quitting forever. I don't think I could have made a better decision.

Post by: unepagaille on July 22, 2009 05:44:33 AM
I didn't participate but love to read the secrets... and this one particularly stuck out to me

Getting farther from goal: several years ago I lost 40 lbs, but put them back on when I went off to university and then some. 2 years ago I lost almost 70 lbs and have kept it off, but recently it's been creeping back on when I haven't changed my eating habits and have been exercising to extremes. I recently found out it's probably a medical condition but the picture in the secret really hit home. I've always felt like a thin person trapped inside a too-big-for-me body and now that I finally feel like "myself" I'm terrified of going back to what I was. I just noticed nobody else had commented on that secret and wanted the sender to know it really, really hit home for me and it's also beautifully done. I'm making it my desktop background.

Alright, my apologies for the delays but I am finally posting the last 2 secrets I received!

Closed..


Opened..

"My parents not telling me they sold the house was what I needed to let them go. I am much happier now than I have been."

-----


"Sometimes, I wish I had someone to brag to when I take a really good... [back]...(poop)"

And I must say, this last one smells wonderful! lol


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: dark.star.88 on July 24, 2009 08:06:44 PM

Poop - I fell on the floor laughing to this one! I tell people (especially my boyfriend) whenever I have very large turds.. they gross out .. but I think its funny because its normal to poop they act like its a sin!!! Haha

Post by: HarleyQuinn on July 30, 2009 04:04:35 AM
rec. my last secret a little over a week ago, just now getting to posting... SORRY!!!


It says:
"Crocs are the stupidest shoes ever. I dont care if they're comfy. They shouldn't be on anyone's feet EVER!"


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: raeonix on July 30, 2009 06:08:14 AM
I don't know if it's just me or not, but no matter how many holes you punch in rubber, my feet still sweat. I'm guilty of owning a pair of Crocs (the mary-jane style so they aren't AS bad) and the only place I ever wear them is to take out the garbage.


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: Aquila on July 30, 2009 11:46:58 PM
yes they are ugly, I totally agree! However I really want a pair for work. The clothes we wear are ugly too and the croqs would go well with them, but I am still not sure what color I should buy to match the winered pants. I am thinking about bright orange ;) Well I am also not sure if I should keep the job.... so another reason I haven't bought some yet :)


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: Super-Ted_Cullen! on July 31, 2009 04:38:41 PM
My last two; sorry, I was on holiday and only got back last night!

FRONT:

"I could have been born anyplace, anywhere, anytime
WHY HERE?"

The four sections, colour co-ordinated:
"Peace, flowers, freedom, happiness and love"
"Airship pirate?"
"Any fantasty world?"
"The Middle ages?"


BACK:

"Yes, I believe in fairytales!"


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: Super-Ted_Cullen! on July 31, 2009 04:41:26 PM
Last, but most certainly not least:



"My friends would think bad of me if I would tell them I read it.
However, I must confess:
Twilight makes my day!
I haven't laughed so much in a long time!"

(In case you can't tell from the picture, the background is an apple and stencilled on is an image of the two main characters, Edward and Bella. Believe me; that is hard to cut out. :D)


Title: Re: Post Secret 9 (Send-Outs 7/10)
Post by: KiwiDragons on July 31, 2009 05:40:46 PM
