Post by: beki710 on August 19, 2009 10:49:50 AM
As we've already got a sender I thought I would stay ahead of the game and open up the Swap Gallery! Remeber to only photograph one postcard per photo and to make any comments you have in a seperate post. Also please message me with the codes that come on the cards so I can keep track of who has sent/received!  :)

First secret so soon!? I'll send soon also


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on August 21, 2009 04:41:14 PM
It's a beautiful song, I think there's so much said in it, not just to the film it's associated with but just the lyrics alone. I think a lot of people have a song that makes them cry and it's good to have that because it's cathartic. I listen to Jonny Cash's Hurt when I need an emotional release. I'd rather have one listening to a song in private than in a public place.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on August 21, 2009 05:08:04 PM
I haven't heard this song yet...so I will be finding it later and downloading to listen.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery

yay, will be sending soon!

Post by: Avabrowneyes on August 21, 2009 11:06:59 PM
I cry at all kinds of songs. Heck, commericals get me sometimes! One song in particular, though, is "Baby Mine" from the movie Dumbo. When Allison Krauss sings "Baby mine, don't you cry" I start bawling! Completely opposite of the intended affect. :)


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cheesefairy13 on August 22, 2009 12:05:30 AM
I can't say that I know that song but I do have songs where one second i'm singing along happily then the next second I get all teary eyed. Certain lyrics just hit too close to home.

Oh God! That part of Dumbo has me in hysterical tears I just can't cope with it, it's so upsetting! I could probably start crying just thinking about it, I am such a sucker for sad bits in films...

Post by: zendaisy on August 22, 2009 01:21:51 AM
I always used to cry over "Let It Be"--for YEARS, every time.  First note, bam, I'd be crying.  And I never could figure out why--there was absolutely no reason to.  It didn't even make me feel sad or anything, it just made me cry all over the place.  And then suddenly it just stopped, also for no reason.  I feel you, secret-sender!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on August 22, 2009 06:38:27 AM
I used to never cry over movies/tv shows/ or songs. Now...after I had a child I think my hormones are all out of whack because I cry over everything now. I can watch a tv show and something sort of sad happens and i'm balling my eyes out. Its crazy.

My daughter's father/my bf lives in NY the last time he was visiting I started crying 2 days before he left and he just laughed at me.

I am crazy emotional now!


Ooooh...I can't wait for the next secret to be posted!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Chelsea K on August 22, 2009 01:48:48 PM
I got my first secret!

FRONT

"I can't believe you told me that doing cocaine with you would make us closer"

BACK

"I can't believe I listened to you!"

Sorry The bottom card is upside down I tried to fix it but it wouldn't stay turned


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Avabrowneyes on August 22, 2009 08:36:27 PM
Cocaine secret sender--at some point in our lives we all do things we regret to get closer to someone. I feel you there!

Post by: beki710 on August 26, 2009 10:19:07 AM
I think some birds are scary! I am so scared of pigeons. In the UK they are pretty much vermin and in city centres you get loads just scavaging off dropped food they then fly up in your faces when you walk near them. Eurgh.

by the way I just want to say that this is such a well made secret! It's fabric and the bird and lettering has been stitched on, I think it's beautiful  :)

It's very pretty, the tiny red envelope is paper and glued on if you can't tell the 3d from the photo.
I have no great insight to add to this, I know how it feels. I had a brief and broken long distance relationship, but I also know people who had long distance relationship for ages and eventually got married. One couple who have been together for over 25 years, and another who's been together for at least 15 years.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on August 26, 2009 01:10:46 PM
Long distance relationships can be hard but I think that they can be successful. If you both love each other then I believe that they can work. I've seen proof of it in some of my friends, I hope it works out the same for you  :)


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on August 26, 2009 01:55:18 PM
Woah the gallery exploded!!!

The vibe secret is great...and I totally agree with it!

The bird secret...I to am deathly afraid of birds. They freak me out. Also the card was beautifully crafted.

The long distance love secret...I have the same problem. My partner lives in NYC and I live in Wisconsin. We have a child together, him and I just decided to be a couple again a few months ago. I am so afraid of opening myself back up to him after all the pain but I am doing it anyway. I love him and he loves me. We talk, text, video message everyday. The distance is very hard. I am giving myself a year from now with the distance then one of us has to make the big move, I think that's a reasonable time frame.

Wow...probably way more info than what was needed or wanted!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: krafty119 on August 26, 2009 02:28:23 PM
I love the postcards too!! I totally agree with the reliable one... :) It's a no-fail system!

I sent out two of my secrets today... I'll be sending the other 3 shortly!!

Can't wait to get some too!! (that's what she said) <--- Love that joke!

Same! I've put it on my wall  :)

Haha! I love it too! It's almost as good as "Your Mum!!"


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: travelgirl on August 26, 2009 04:42:47 PM
i can totally relate to the long distance secret.... i just started down that road myself.
Birds- i'm terrified of getting pooped on by them!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cassiecate57 on August 26, 2009 05:11:59 PM
I received my first secret today.



It says, "I feel like a failure because I am 50% Cuban and can't speak a lick of Spanish"


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cassiecate57 on August 26, 2009 07:40:39 PM
Cocaine: my sister admitted to doing it once; i'm glad you grew out of it and can look back to see that person probably wasn't so good for you.

Birds: i am that way about cows. they're shifty.

Cuban: you don't have to identify with your culture. just be yourself :) i hate filling in boxes on forms (race, gender, sexuality, religion, education) and demographics in general.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: roxybadoxy on August 26, 2009 10:08:34 PM
cuban- don't feel bad! i'm 100% filippino and i can barely say a full sentence in my native language which is really sad. you just need to keep on trying.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Melladh on August 27, 2009 01:42:44 AM
Wow...probably way more info than what was needed or wanted!

That's the point of the swap I think, no? ;)


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Avabrowneyes on August 27, 2009 02:34:37 AM
Hitachi-- And the best part is, it doesn't mind if you have a headache.

Birds--Well made and that's irony! You would expect a secret scare to be done in shades of black and have newspaper cut outs or something, but no, you went the sweet route. Props to you! One of my best friends is terrified of birds. She was cornered in a tree by an emu for hours once!

Long distance--*Sigh* We've all been there to some degree or another. Falling in love is scary no matter what. The card looks like a real photo of someone's hands, wow :)

Spanish--I'm a native German, but I got comped out of my German language classes because I could only speak the local dialect, not high German. Now THAT'S failure, lol. The best part about your secret, hun, is while you feel like a failure now, the good news is that it's something that can be changed. Sit down with a parent, sign up for a class (but do better than I did in it *wink*)

Keep the secrets coming!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: elwynceltic on August 27, 2009 07:27:41 AM
I received my first secret the other day :)



"I'm to blame. After dating for a year you stole my virginity when I was 13. You were my 1st boyfriend. But I was the one that stayed with you for another year."


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: krafty119 on August 27, 2009 03:10:49 PM
Got another card out today! that one is a doozy!!! Down to two more left to send!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: graciedoo on August 28, 2009 12:49:25 PM
Birds - That secret is just beautifully made! My mom is terrified of birds, too. On every childhood vacation, she'd tell me not to chase pigeons because "they're disgusting rats with wings!"  :D

Spanish - It's never too late to learn!






Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cheesefairy13 on August 28, 2009 07:23:01 PM
Orgasm - This one made me smile.

Bird - I definately agree birds are way creepy. My friend had birds that were mostly kept out in the house and not in cages.  And they would randomly fly into her room and swoop down on me.

Spanish -  In a way I know where you're coming from. I'm half filipino and half swedish and I feel bad that I know how to speak swedish but I don't know tagalog. I feel like i'm more connected with my swedish roots and know very little about filipino part.

I finished all my secrets! I'm gonna send them as soon as possible.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: zendaisy on August 28, 2009 08:46:50 PM
I got my first card today!


(Front:)  My husband and I haven't had sex in two months
We're slowly breaking apart

(Back:)  Neither of us is doing anything to stop it


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: zendaisy on August 28, 2009 09:06:53 PM
I'm so impressed, always, with the willingness to bare their hearts that people show in the PostSecret swaps.  "Cheaper than therapy" indeed!  This will probably sound corny, but I really feel privileged and honored when I receive a card with someone's heartfelt secret on it.  Thank you, secret sender, for sharing your card with me. :-*


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: elwynceltic on August 29, 2009 07:08:40 AM
What I think is remarkable is the wide variety of secrets that people send. You have ones that you just might not want to tell people such as the bird or vibrator ones, then you turn around and read ones about major life changing events/problems. Can't wait to read more :)


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on August 29, 2009 04:24:56 PM
I received another secret today.

Here it is!

Front:

I write NC-17 rated stories about underage wizards

Back:

One of my most viewed stories involves Snape and Hermione. (Although she is 18...Maybe)
She's 17, but it's not child pornography with fake people- Is it?


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery

my first card:



Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: gala_apples on August 29, 2009 09:40:09 PM
fanfiction: while it's not my secret (i don't like snape) you're not alone. a year ago i was in a swap based on your favourite HP pairing, so i know there are plenty of ficcers here.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Melladh on August 30, 2009 02:19:33 AM
Fanfiction: Almost feel a bit pedophilic for saying it, but still: You're of legal age from 15yrs here... :D I still don't think I'd envision any of the HP characters like that, but it's not child pornography. ::)


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Mfupi on August 30, 2009 08:21:51 AM
The first secret I've received!



The front reads:
"Dear Sir, Size matters only if you don't know how to use it to our mutual advantage! Sincerely, firm believer in the motion of the ocean"

The back reads:
"P.S. Bonus Secret: I'm not the only sex goddess who thinks this"


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: edwards1 on August 30, 2009 08:36:25 AM
I am sorry this is all backwards! I dont know what happened.  :-\

Front: I slept with my ex-husband for $100 after we were divorced. I also taped it and showed it to his girlfriend. She had been his mistress.
Back: They stayed together until she caught him with other girls as well. At least my electric bill got paid.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: edwards1 on August 30, 2009 08:38:15 AM
Let me tell you this. I have done this swap three times and I can honestly say that this is my favorite secret!!!
Who ever you are who sent this..you are my hero! No doubt. I wish I could say I did something so bad a$$ like this!

Fanfic - I understand this, I don't read it but I have friends that do! One of my previous housemates would stay up every night to read it!

Size matters - I agree with this so much!

$100 I agree with Edwards1, I wish I had the guts to do something like that!

Post by: Casey1201 on August 30, 2009 01:49:20 PM
Malmow- My mom breastfed my brother until he was 2 (he is 20 now) and he is the only one in our family that has never had a cavity. My mom swears thats why he is the healthiest one in our family.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on August 30, 2009 02:23:07 PM
Breastfeeding secret: I nursed my daughter till she was 2, one day she just didn't want it anymore. It was a sad, sad day for me. I will never understand why society thinks it's wrong to be nursing children that are toddlers. I would have nursed my daughter till she self-weaned herself...it happened to be a lot earlier than I was expecting or really wanting.

Happy ever after - I guess you don't know if he will be your happy ever after but you can't be certain about anything in life either. Everyone has doubts and worries but often they don't come to anything. I hope he is your happy ever after!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: graciedoo on August 31, 2009 12:19:34 PM
I received two on Saturday.












Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: graciedoo on August 31, 2009 12:29:58 PM
I hate white - When I opened this envelope and read the secret, I realized I was wearing all black. Pants, shirt, everything even down to my socks! White is just way to easy to stain when you're clumsy like me. :-P

Ex-Roommate - Wow. Whatever she did, I'm glad you don't have to deal with her being your roommate any more!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on August 31, 2009 01:58:16 PM
White - White reminds me of Chavs so I'm not a massive fan of wearing it. It's far too easy to stain!

Roomate - I can relate completely I despise my ex-housemate. And I've still got another year of having classes with him at university.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Lo{ve} on August 31, 2009 04:20:06 PM
ex roommate- i wanted to seriously hurt my roommate last year, she drove me crazy and every time i saw her i was instantly pissed! i saw her on campus for the first time today and it fueled the old fire, i can't stand her! so you're not alone! the worst part is, i always tried to be nice to her, so she doesn't even know i don't like her! she started yelling my name when she saw me today but i just completely ignored her!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Lo{ve} on August 31, 2009 04:22:26 PM

Post by: krafty119 on August 31, 2009 05:22:51 PM





I pay $20 a month to a gym
I've been to twice

Back: I even have a packed gym bag in my car


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: krafty119 on August 31, 2009 05:24:02 PM
That last one I posted was written right after a huge pan of oatmeal rasin cookies got done cooking... and eaten!!

I feel for ya gym mate! I too bought a 3 month membership - you know, to save money - and have been twice...

the SHAME! :)



Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Avabrowneyes on September 01, 2009 02:53:50 AM
Gym--I know myself and thought I'd stay ahead of the game by bringing the gym home to me. Weights, jump rope, that kind of thing...they lay around like I'm actually going to do something with them. *blush*

Roommate--Ouch. I firmly believe that living together is the make or break of a relationship, friendship included.

Size--Yes! Absolutely!

$100--You are officially my hero. If I'm reading this right, you screwed over the guy that "screwed" you in the first place...and got paid to do it! Rock on, sister. Rock on.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Lo{ve} on September 01, 2009 05:37:41 PM


then i opened the little envelope:

"Last time i did Postsecret nobody commented on my most important secret. It took a lot of courage for me to send it and I was so upset no one said anything. Thanks for listening."


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Lo{ve} on September 01, 2009 05:39:53 PM

Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: krafty119 on September 01, 2009 06:04:50 PM
I feel a lot of the same way! and I think the last time I did it, no one mentioned anything either... I realize though, it helps me to say something even if no one replies...

I'll try and get better about commenting on all of em!! :)


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Melladh on September 02, 2009 02:58:51 AM
@postsecret secret: I have to admit, sometimes I don't comment on a secret because everything I can think of saying sounds false even if it isn't, or full-of-myself, or just plain cheesy, and I can't get around to posting the comment with any self-respect left. But no secret goes unread, or unfelt.

@gym secret: me and my teammate at work bought a $400 year gym membership in april or something. I've been once, and she hasn't been at all. ::)

I have to say, I couldn't agree more ::) Partially because it sounds like a real fun thing to do, at least unless it's my own wall... :D But I can't stand wearing makeup at all. I don't mind people who do. And I played with it once or twice in the privacy of my own home when I was 14. Basically all my female friends (and some male!) wear makeup, and so does my mom, but I could never get my head around it. I just can't wear it. It would be like going out with socks on my ears.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on September 02, 2009 01:38:03 PM


I flirt with and befriend older men (40+) because my dad was never around.
I'm barely legal!
...and yes they usually look like this.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on September 02, 2009 01:39:57 PM
Lipstick: I agree. I can't stand lipstick on myself. Give me some chapstick and that's it!

Older Men: I used to do that a lot as well...but not because my dad was never around it was because I just liked men that were a lot older than me. My bf is 5 years older than me...which isn't much, but he's still older.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery

I'm behind, I'm sorry!

birds - they scare me too. but I feel bad if i hit one/run one over. I found a whole wing in my tire well once...i still cry about it sometimes.

roommate - I have a college rooms for literally 3 weeks and I still curse her out. She was such a stupid lush...ugh. And we shared the same last name so people thought we were related too.

uncommented secret - same here. I had one a few rounds ago no one commented on and it was a dark secret. I was upset but i figured people couldn't relate.

older men - i'm sorry about your father but there's no harm in flirting! I used to flirt like crazy with someone i worked with who was way older.....fun times

@postsecret secret: I have to admit, sometimes I don't comment on a secret because everything I can think of saying sounds false even if it isn't, or full-of-myself, or just plain cheesy, and I can't get around to posting the comment with any self-respect left. But no secret goes unread, or unfelt.

That's me too.  Sometimes I don't comment on something that moves me just because I can't quite figure out how to articulate what I want to say about it.

Front:


I have an addictive personality

Back:


Once I get into something I cant stop till I'm done or months later.

My most recent Addiction?  Reading.  I cant stop, Even if the novel sucks (like the one ripped up on this post card).  I've spent About $1200 on books at Barnes And Noble in a matter of months.  Money I cant waste.

I get Addicted to crafts till they're done.  TV series.  Series on DVD (I'll spend hours watching them despite plans I may have had previously).

It scares me.  I'm Afraid of becoming Addicted to something bad.  I've Avoided drugs and pills and gambling.  But with my 21st passed, Alcohol has entered the picture.

I'm hoping I break the pattern.

i am the exact same way. the one reason i will never ever smoke anything, not even a cigarette, is because i know i'd be instantly addicted.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Angry Angel on September 02, 2009 11:46:18 PM
I would say that was more obsession than addiction, especially considering each obsession eventually wears off. I think that usually gets better with age, as you get more involved with your job (hopefully find something you love) and maybe your partner. Basically, use the energies you spend on a comparatively pointless obsession (nothing wrong with reading - go to the library) on something you need to spend all your time and attention on.

I got three friend-themed secrets and I can relate. My resented my best friend for making the varsity volleyball team the same year I made JV. It was hard. Then my freshman year of college I had the on-campus party experience while she lived at home with her parents. I was afraid to talk to her because she might judge me or resent me. I eventually realized that a true best friend is someone that you can tell anything to, and being honest got us a lot further than keeping secrets from each other.
Now that best friend lives 10 hours from me, and I haven't been very good at making other friends. I miss having people I can talk to, but I'm tired of the silly efforts I have to make to be able to hang out with people that I can't really talk to anyway.
(BTW does the "I Miss Having Friends" secret look stretched out or is it just my computer?)

Post by: malmow on September 03, 2009 11:35:41 AM

I always put myself out there for you. I was the one to call and text, even though you ignored me half the time. I made the plans that you always seemed to back out of. I asked if you were okay and listened to you when you had problems. But I'm tired of being that person. I've stopped putting all the effort in and you still put in nothing. You've become a promiscuous, drug using, self centered, lazy, immature mistress. Everything you said you'd never be you've become. When I needed you, you turned your back on me. Said you had to much to deal with. I've been dealing with exactly what your going through and more and never once turned my back. I'm still not turning my back on you but I refuse to take the first step forward. You said you feel alone. Well if you do its all your fault. I can't tell you any of this so instead I have to write it on a postcard. You're mother is dying and you can't handle it right now.

I don't think I can be your friend anymore
take back your friendship necklace.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: malmow on September 03, 2009 11:37:48 AM
I've also been there when a friend is doing self-destructive things. That is when they need you the most and want the least to do with you. I know it's hard for you to say these things and to decide not to be their friend anymore. I hope you can work things out when your friend is ready.

I apologize for the poor pictures...


I've smoke weed for 17 years pretty faithfully. I decided to stop-made it about a month. It was awful! I was so grouchy, mean and unmotivated and thought everyone hated me. the minute I did it again - i felt great!
back - all was right with the world. I don't understand how weed is any different than prescribed (anti-depressants) medication. both alter you....i don't think i can (or want to) live without weed!!!


i am 30 years old. my parents run my life.



My mom just ended her second marriage after 13 years. What scares me the most is what it means for my marriage. I don't want to make the same mistakes.



I didn't learn how to ride a bike until i was 15.

The same day I almost ran over a little girl tying her shoes and an old lady carrying her groceries, i did run into a bush andmy cousin on her bike. i haven't ridden another bike since that summer. it was horrifying


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: yoyowa on September 03, 2009 04:34:10 PM
weed - i agree. weed needs to be legalized.

parents - i'm sorry. i don't know what your circumstance is but maybe you can make a break, or just let them know how you feel?

marriage - people learn for others mistakes. i'm sure you'll be fine

bike - i'm sorry about your bad experience.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: krafty119 on September 03, 2009 10:15:32 PM
Those are all such great cards!!

The 30 and parents running your life one, really?!?!?! How? Live it yourself. It's a fun, scary, unsure, sure, etc., etc. time...

What's holding you back?

****Leagalize weed!!!

***Really, not till you're 15? I thought it was a crime to not ride a bike as a kid... although now a days, everything is motorized. Sheesh!

It's hard not to follow in your role models (your Mom being married and divorced)... I try to remember how nice life is today, and appreciate that. maybe that'll make it easy to stick with it.

Whew!!! that was a lot. Guess I felt like talking! :)

And second:

"Help"
The suffering and pain
begin to make me insane
The pain you hold deep inside
All the scars, blood and the number of times you've lied
About your life
About you holding a knife
to your wrist
nothing to risk
You begin to bleed
now you realize you need
Help


"I began writing poetry in 6th grade- most of it dark, twisty and depressing. This poem I wrote in 7th grade, eight years ago. I still feel the same- empty, alone, angry, depressed. Only now I can't write it down, the words dont flow any longer. Now I feel like I have nothing left. No feelings, no happiness. And now, no words."

Thanks for sharing, that must have been a tough one!!!

"Wish I knew what I want to be when I grow up. 56 & still wonder!"



"I KNOW I'm on a dangerous path, but I can't ask for help until I reach my goal."

Post by: cheesefairy13 on September 04, 2009 07:11:13 PM
Wow I've missed a lot:

HP Fanfic- This one made me giggle... I once read a harry/draco series, It was very amusing.

Procrastination - I procrastinate all the time and I hate it. I wish I was the type of person who would just start and finish stuff early then maybe i'd have a life. Instead everything just piles up and I drown in it.

Gym - Hah I bought all these cute work out clothes to wear when I work out. But I NEVER workout.
Luckily I didnt join a gym and they're super comfy. Great for lazy days or sleeping in, pretty much the opposite of what they were intended for.

Postsecret secret - I'm sorry I know i'm guilty of that.  I do read them all but sometimes I just don't know what to say. It's always easier with issues I can directly relate to.

I miss having friends - I have very few close friends and since I started college I don't get to see them as much.
I'm a really shy and akward person to get to know, I suck at meeting new people and the whole warming up phase. So I have no real friends where I live now.

Marriage - I'm not married, but my dad has been divorced 3 times. So I have a really hard time seeing myself getting married.  My sister on the other hand has been engaged for a long time, her and her fiance are wonderful
together, and have a baby on the way. I don't know your situation but it's up to both you and your husband to make it work and keep the love going. Don't let your mothers mistakes dicourage you.
 
Interesting strangers - Dito! As mentioned earlier me = shy and akward.

Help - I can't think of what else to say other than i've been there and it's not a good place to be.
Thank you for sharing, I know it took a lot to put that out there.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Mfupi on September 04, 2009 09:15:23 PM
Thumb - I don't know if sucking your thumb is a whole lot different then sucking on the tip of your index finger, which I get doing  sometimes.

Dangerous Path - You know it's a dangerous path, first step is knowing that! Keep dropping hints, make them more obvious! Although, you can always ask for help for other things and slip it in there. I struggled and later found out it wasn't about what I thought it was about. For goodness things keep talking! You can ask for help any time you want, but the sooner the better. Take care of yourself.

Know what you want to be when you grow up - I never want to know what I want to be when I grow up! Those are the interesting people! Frequently flexible, interesting and industrious. Not knowing can be a great thing I think, embrace it!

Spider Phobia - Balloons and I'm done!   

Help - You conveyed your feelings through a letter format rather then poetry. You still have words, maybe you just need a different form rather than poetry.

Fashion Merch. Major - Fashion is linked with creativity... not shallow. Plus, just because someone is an anthropologist or work in a library doesn't make them immune to being shallow. It's all about the individual and if you're concerned on being shallow I'm willing to bet that you're not shallow. I wouldn't think shallow people would worry about that.

Shy to Strangers - I'm out going as all get out and still hit a brick wall with trying to speak to interesting strangers.

Bike riding - You tried, it's better then not! Good on you! Also, I'd like to comment that you were 15 and trying to do new sports, around that age is when a lot of people start getting out of sports. More good on you!

Mom Ending Marriage - My mother has been married 3 times, I worry the same thing for my future. I guess try to learn from others mistakes...

30 y.o. with Parents - If it's a problem do one small step away at a time?

Weed Smoker - Holy crow, LEGALIZE already, geeze! I fully believe in the benefits of pot. Fortunately here we can have medical marijuana and I have a brother who has it prescribed and I believe it's done him better then any of the lists of medications he's ever been on. People who productive self-motivating I believe have every darn right they want to smoke up. (Minus around children and animals, they have sensitive little lungs...)

Can't be your friend - Your friend sounds like what I have learned some of my friends are.... Toxic friends. I had to cut them out, it hurt some, but in the long run I think it was better for me. Good luck.

Miss Having Friends - Every stranger is a potential friend. If you're shy go to community activities/volunteer things/etc with the intention of doing well at what you're there to do and you'll have people come meet you.

Friend of Social Butterfly - My best friend is painfully shy while I am so out going that I wish I could be more like her. I hope she doesn't resent me cos I love her and would give her some of my out going attitude if I could, cos it's not always great.

Addictive Personality - I think I read somewhere else that it seems a little more obsessive then addictive. I can agree with that statement. If you are very concerned about it what about keeping track of yourself carefully so that you'll have the chance to have some drinks and so forth without it becoming a problem?


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cassiecate57 on September 05, 2009 06:50:13 AM
secret with no comments: i worry about this too.

shy around strangers: i'm trying to be more outgoing but i'm not having much luck. it's really hard to just talk to a random person!

gym bag: there's a standup comedian who calls gym dues your "fat tax". you pay the tax and you don't feel like such a disgusting slob for not using it. if you have the packed bag, start small. "i will go walk on the tm for 20 minutes", "i will [something you don't hate] for [short duration]", do everything you can to make it enjoyable (music, water, position fans around you if your gym has them)...good luck. i have a workout room at my apt (it's really nice!) and i just try to think of it as a necessary evil. some days it's fun, some days it's not but either way, it's good for you. maybe you hate it because you've overdone it in the past.

still don't know what you want to be: doesn't everyone struggle with this? i sure do. i'm sorry you feel lost. i'm in the midst of two career paths and i don't know where to go. one's a non profit, low-paying thing that i LOVE (and am ok at), the other is a robot-unfeeling-corporate-greed job that i happen to be very good at and can tolerate for long periods (5 years and counting). good luck to you. maybe you can take some personality tests or find an ASVAB-like test online to help you gain some direction. good luck. {{{hugs}}}

It really, really hurts my feelings that my friends and family don't appreciate handmade gifts anything.
Whaterver I make is intrinsically valueless to them, regardless of how well it's done, how much time it took,
or even how expensive the materials were. Ouch.

Handmade gifts: I worry about that all the time too. I look at all these great things and think I could make that and give it for Christmas or something like that. I always talk my way out of it, thinking they will think I am cheap. Little do they know, sometimes it costs more to make something nice than to buy it. So I usually just buy their gifts and start the process all over again the next year.

Suicide: I'm glad you failed too!!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cheesefairy13 on September 05, 2009 01:20:14 PM
Handmade - I have to say that the picture doesn't really do this card justice.  It looks like it was painted and a lot of care was put into making. I could just imagine the work you do in your other projects, your friends and family are the ones missing out. I can't believe no one will appreciate it. Not even a grandma or something?  That sucks. My bestfriend is the only one who gives me handmade gifts.  Thank you for sharing, my advice would be to find some more appreciative friends.

Failed Suicide - I'm happy that your in a better place now. And thank you for sharing i'm sure it gives other people hope that things can and do get better.

Men - I don't know where the fear stems from but I hope you find a way to cope with it and eventually be rid of it. Men are everywhere it's not fair to yourself to have this fear bringing your down. Thank you for sharing your secret.

After a huge fight with my best friend, I wished she could never have children. She wanted them more than anything. A few years later, she had a molar pregnancy that developed into cancer--which eventually killed her. We made up before she died, and I never told her what I had wished. I've never forgiven myself.... And I miss her so much.

Zooey Deschanel:  This is kind of funny and doesn't have to do with your secret specifically, but ever since a secret several rounds ago in which someone said her child was fathered by a famous actor, every time I see a secret that says something like, "I'd leave my [Significant Other] for [Famous Person]," I always wonder...is it an actual possibility? :D ::)

PostSecret book:  I didn't think you were cheating, but who am I to turn down a bonus secret?! ;)  Re the vodka, I sort of feel like as long as you aren't, you know, a schoolbus driver or something, then I'm glad it worked for you.

Nails - It can be so tough to stop biting your nails, especially if it's something you do nervously. I only stopped when I started painting them a lot lol ...but whenever I get uncomfortable, it's really tempting to bite them again.


Schizophrenia - Here's hope that, if you ever are single again, you can stay healthy. I don't know if you're religious, but you're in my prayers. Also, your drawing skills are just fine  ;)

Nails: I used to bite my nails, and I really only started because I didn't understand how it worked - I tried biting off a nail because I was bored essentially. It lasted two years. Since it didn't start naturally it wasn't that hard to stop, but now when I get stressed and restless I chew on the side of my fingers instead, or just below the thumb. I'm not sure if that's better :D But it doesn't show as much.

Barnard: Go for it. You might regret not doing it more than 1 and 2 will ever bother you even if they turn out to be true. 1 won't matter if going there makes you happy, and 2 you'll still have a chance at after college, in the unlikely situation that you'll never meet any guys during that time ;)

In my experience, people that go to all-girl or all-guy schools usually find that there is another school somewhere in the vicinity for them to party and meet people. Also, I'm sure the guys in the area are smart enough to cruise an all-girls school.
As far as Columbia goes, the only people that might think that are shallow. Once you're in your school you'll be surrounded by like-minded people and you can tell everyone you know how awesome it is.
Sometimes I think you can be a victim AND a survivor. But I agree with Melladh, too.

Drinking: If you don't drink (for personal or religious or health reasons), the best thing to do is find other people who don't drink to hang out with! A lot of times colleges will throw on-campus alcohol-free parties that encourage students not to drink. You can probably meet people you'll have things in common with there.
On the other hand, I will say, if you're of age and it's not against your religion or dangerous to your health, drinking can be fun.

After about a week and a half of pouty faces, I received not one, but THREE cards! I did the Craftster's Dance O'Glee TM, and proceeded to dance my way through the rest of my work day.

Here's number 1



If you can't read it, it says: I love the Campaign for Real Beauty.



On to card #2:

Sender #1, thank you so much for sending me this card. I had no idea what the Campaign for Real Beauty was and googled it and educated myself. I've decided that it's a wonderful cause. In fact, I plan on donating as soon as I'm able. You opened my eyes to something that was worth noticing and taking part in. Thank you!

Sender #2: I hope this card was meant in a light hearted way, because it made me smile. It gave off a sense of irony that I appreciate. I hope you find the color and equally interesting variety the world has to offer in the days to come :)

Sender #3, I will let you in on a secret of my own--you are not along ;)

Racist Dog- I had a dog like that. We had it from a tiny puppy and it stayed in the house all the time. My ex would have friends of all colors over, but they usually stayed outside. The first time he ever saw a black man, he growled and eyed him warily. Honestly I think it's just because it had never seen someone who wasn't white. No maybe it's not racist, just a little sheltered lol.

FINALLY I get some secrets in the mail 3/5

This one has a crazy amount of small light writing

"I would rather play on the computer than interact with real people. So I do. Sims ebay facebook yahoo craftster myspace world of warcraft fanfiction sites pogo google witchvox"
Back:I have been diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. I even make my boyfriend talk to strangers on the internet in games so I don't have to!"

I really relate because I also have social anxiety disorder! The only drawback is that it is really easy to fake the disorder or misread as another. I manifest mine in the form of stomach aches!


"I had an abortion that I don't regret"
Back: "My boyfriend at the time was verbally, sexually, and physically abusive towards me. I think of it as a blessing in disguise."

Yay pro-abortion! (just my opinion don't be offended)

I would leave my boyfriend for her
ooh I have a chick crush on Zoey Deschanel too! she's soo friggin cute. (I wouldn't leave my bf for her but I'd kiss her lol)
I've seen a lot of post secrets in this round that I can relate with. especially the social ones. sometimes I feel so awkward when I talk to people or I'll want to talk to people but idk what to say, or how to keep conversations going.

Abortion: Regardless of how anyone feels on the subject of it, at least you're not stuck dealing with that asshole of a boyfriend for the next 18 years of your life. I know a lot of guys that give the mother of their kids an even harder time with child support and custody, not because they want/love the kid, but just to give the mom grief.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cassiecate57 on September 09, 2009 07:02:54 AM
social anxiety: I wonder sometimes if I have it (I get really awkward around people I don't know, especially in my age group) but I'm too nervous to go to the doctor and ask/say, "I think I have social anxiety disorder". What if he just said 'Nah, you're fine, walk it off.' or 'Take these pills.' I don't really know how to handle it or what to do with it.

abortion: you made the right choice for you. no regrets.

I don't actually think the serial killer postcard is all that weird.  My best friend is fascinated by serial killers and true crime, too; my interest is less, but I have been known to read true crime now and then, and I've certainly spent stretches of time on Wikipedia looking up famous murderers, serial and otherwise.  If anybody bugs you about it, tell them it's research for the thriller you're writing.  (Or just tell them to get bent.) :D

Serial Secret--Psychologists, psychoanalysts, the Biography and True Crime channel share your fascination. Don't worry about it :)

Racist dog--It made me laugh because I had to wonder how in the world a dog could be racist, but you explained it nicely. We used to have a dog that never made a peep until we moved into the same neighborhood as the county sherriff (how the heck do you spell it?). He used to take a daily walk by our house. Our church-mouse dog would suddenly run outside and bark her head off, the hair rising on the back of her neck. Then she'd come back in and act like nothing had happened. The strange thing is that my dad is a cop. Makes you wonder.

Serial Killers - I have a fascination with the mindset of people who commit crimes and also with natural disasters, I can spend hours reading about them so you're not alone!
Stolen Stickers - This made me laugh!

One of my secrets is missing...how long should I wait before I send out another one????


As for people who's secrets haven't appeared yet - hold off making any more for a few days yet as there are a couple of swappers who can't post right this moment for one reason or another, I wouldn't want you to start making more for them to be posted!

Doubting being able to be a doctor - I think at some point everyone has doubts of whether they will be good enough, whether they are choosing the right career. I also think that a lot of those doubts fade with time as you become more confident in what you do. I hope you succeed!

relationship commitment -  I have commitment issues as well there's only about 2 people who know pretty much everything about me and it's taken me a long time to trust them. I think you have to find someone who understands that you can't be completely open right away. Trust builds after time.

I believe the author of the card meant, for lack of a better word - arm flab. I believe, unless im reading this wrong, it was the back of the arm card. The wings is the arm flab/fat/skin that hangs.

The reason I needed this swap so badly is no longer an issue
And it is as liberating as it is glum

Thank you to the users that sent secrets to me.  I'm still waiting on one more.

Think Of The Children: I can't imagine how frustrating this must be.  Sometimes love truly is blind, and this case sounds exactly like that.  Should I be happy I'm an only child?! lol

Liberating/Glum: I'm glad that you were able to get over whatever it was, but at the same time I'm sorry it's caused you/the situation to leave you glum.

Indi Wannabe: I love Indiana Jones movies and have always thought how awesome it would be to be him.  I love watching all of the shows where they unearth treasures/creatures.  Archaeology is amazing!

Love/Hate: I hadn't heard about BPD before, so I looked it up.  I cannot imagine what a person goes through that has this disorder.  I really feel for you.

Indie was my hero growing up! Last Crusade was the "it" movie at my house. Then again...so was Pinnochio...*wonders at psychological meaning*

drink too much: i can relate. i had a calculus class (at a community college but calculus is calculus) a few years ago and it took every ounce of my energy for the entire quarter. as a product of this regimen, i began drinking every single weekend, without relent until vomiting. i'm not a drinker, really. be careful. that's a slippery slope. hopefully the pressures are temporary and at some point they'll let up. seek help from others: babysitters, if you need them, parents/friends. make sure to integrate some relaxing time in with a hectic schedule. i'm sorry to hear about this.

That's usually due to high testosterone. For some people something as simple as birth control pills helps.

It looks like we've slowed down on posting. Does that mean everyone has sent and recieved all their cards??


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Mfupi on September 21, 2009 09:46:08 PM
I've sent all mine, but haven't received my last one.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Lo{ve} on September 21, 2009 09:46:55 PM
i received card 4/5 today. i only see 3 of mine posted so i'm sort of worried about that!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Melladh on September 22, 2009 01:38:51 AM
I've only received four as well


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Avabrowneyes on September 22, 2009 02:06:04 AM
I'm still keeping a sharp eye out for my fifth as well!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on September 22, 2009 04:52:16 AM
Ok we have several options here:

1. People carry on waiting to see if the cards hopefully arrive
2. If you have photos of your secrets and would like them to be posted up you can send them to me and I can post them for you
3. You can recraft and resend a secret (although again no guarantees it will arrive)

We did have one late swapper so I'm hoping her cards will arrive sometime this week.
Anyway let me know what you think of these options.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: jca1982 on September 22, 2009 05:47:46 AM
I think I am going to wait till the end of this week and if my last one isn't posted then I will send out a new one on Monday.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cassiecate57 on September 22, 2009 08:51:23 AM
I think I saw all my secrets posted. So if someone hasn't received I hope someone lets me know.

Having thousands of stickers sounds pretty awesome :D I love hoarding. I can't help it. I try not to though, and I mix my addictions. ::) I used to buy lots of stickers but I could never use them - because once I used them, they'd be.. well. Spent. :D That did however make me stop buying them, because I'm not able to justify it - not even for a basic collection ::)

I got all 5 of my secrets and all 5 of mine are posted! all done  :'(

Post by: cheesefairy13 on September 22, 2009 10:36:16 PM
My mom mailed me my last secret on monday so I should be posting sometime this week. Since I was maybe moving during sendouts I put down my moms address and she lives three hours away so thats why i couldn't pick it up sooner with final exams and all.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: HarleyQuinn on September 22, 2009 11:38:25 PM
I've rec. all 5, but only see 4 of mine posted


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: scaramouche on September 23, 2009 10:29:58 AM
I've seen 3 of my cards posted.

I got one more yesterday. I'll post a picture tomorrow. Which puts my counter on 4 cards.

Post by: jessa_aka_jalapeno on September 23, 2009 11:25:52 AM
I've received one more but I am at school right now and I can't post it. I will post it as soon as i get home. I think I have only seen three of mine posted, and I am getting worried about them.

Do you think that having no return address on the envelope has something to do with why it is taking so long for them to arrive? Like, maybe the post thought they were suspicious and threw them out?


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: elwynceltic on September 23, 2009 05:25:10 PM
I just want to apologize to the organizer and my partner that sent the secret that I haven't posted yet. My internet has been turned off, and I'm just catching up on everything. The last secret will be up in just a smidge. Again, I apologize profusely!!!!!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: travelgirl on September 23, 2009 09:02:36 PM
i got all five and have seen all of mine, i'm kinda sad i don't have anything to look forward to in the post anymore :(


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: cassiecate57 on September 23, 2009 09:12:34 PM
I wondered that too, Jesse. But it seems like they got there ok.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Avabrowneyes on September 24, 2009 01:10:25 AM
All of mine have posted...I'm just jonesing for that one last secret!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on September 24, 2009 06:03:30 AM
I honestly can't say why some secrets have disappeared but we are still getting secrets arriving so keep your fingers crossed that they will eventually get there. I have provided options on the previous page if you still want your secrets to be seen. I've got one that I'm really hoping will arrive as well!

Will you be waiting until everyone has received to give feedback?


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on September 24, 2009 08:40:24 AM
No as there are quite a few people now who have completed. Feedback will be for people who have received and posted all 5 cards so far. I will do the first lot of feedback on Sunday if that's ok with people?


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: malmow on September 24, 2009 08:45:08 AM
That's fine with me! I was just curious.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: krafty119 on September 24, 2009 10:53:54 AM
Thanks for asking and repsonding about feedback. I've been looking at my profile to see if it's been updated, and wondering too.

Thanks!

I love those names! I maybe want kids and Ayden is the name I had planned for my maybe boy. Except spelled with an "I" (Aiden). And my friend who definately wants kids, has Peyton planned for a girl. So it's kinda funny that I got your secret, thanks for sharing it with me.


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: beki710 on September 26, 2009 07:39:14 PM
I don't want kids (for reasons I won't go in to) but if I did I would want them to be called Jade, Emma, Alexa or Mason. I don't know why I have kids names chosen I just do!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery

My 4th one. This one didn't have a number I think. Could the sender please contact Beki710 about it.

Ok Feedback is updated for everyone that has received and posted 5 secrets. Secrets are still arriving in dribs and drabs so stay positive if you've not got them all yet!

If you haven't seen one of your secrets and are making another one to send please let me know. Or you can send me a photo of your secret and I can post it annoymously for you.

Rejoice with me!

In a spectacularly suprising turn of events, my day went from good to Fanfrickintastic.  The Korean mail system got my new laptop here in FOUR business days (from America! I can't even do that from one state to the other!) even though it's a big holiday weekend. I got gifts from parents. The school cook loaded me up, saving precious money from being spent on groceries. The internet guy showed up and had me in the Net in 2 minutes flat. I found my usually elusive printer CD, meaning I can print my pics and get back on track.

And finally...I got my fifth postcard!

Hurray! *victory dances and Nutella all around!*



-Loving Me: I'm a big girl too, and to be honest, I still find it a struggle from day to day to keep my general awesomeness in sight :) High five, lady!


Title: Re: PostSecret Round 10 Swap Gallery
Post by: Avabrowneyes on October 01, 2009 03:29:35 AM

It reads: I could look at the same piece of art for hours and keep seeing new things everytime I take another look. I love abstract/funky art!

Thank you sender!

That really weird! In my 1st year of uni someone signed me up for cheerleading and I got all their emails all the time, that was irritating! But Baby magazines is bizaare!

Ok I need to know if anyone else is reposting/resending any secrets as this swap seems to be winding down now. If no one else is sending I'll call it closed officially

I've been getting baby magazines for a year and a half! I get 3 different kinds of magazines, diapers, formula samples and I even got called once!  It is REALLY annoying. Luckily my mother works with a girl who is pregnant with her first child..so we give her everything lol

I once had an ex's new gf sign me up for tons of Pro-Ana, Weight Loss, and cosmetic surgery emails/junk mails. I'm a BBW and she was 97lbs. I know this because I told him about getting them and her then caught her doing it again on his computer. He dumped her and now I am a bridesmaid in his wedding to a really nice girl :-)
