1  Re: Post Secret Swap Round 2! in The Swap Gallery by MorgieMooka on: December 08, 2007 01:16:50 AM
I love this swap so much. I'm glad this was my first one. Anyway here are four I've received over the last couple of days:

In black: "Par-a-mour n. An illicit lover, especially that of a married person."
To the sender: I'm very sorry for what you're going through. I hope things get better and I'm glad you have friends you can trust.

"I FEEL FAT! But I am too lazy to change."
And then written around the card: "weight watchers. jazzercise. jenny craig. curves. Besides, who has time?!"
I understand this. I always tell myself I'm going to start eating healthier and start working out and all that but then I get caught up in work and school and everything and I lose my ambition. Maybe we should try to help each other be less lazy!

"I'M still afraid of THE Dark... and I'm 30 years old!"
Hey, that's okay! I sleep with a night light on because I don't like waking up in the middle of the night to pitch darkness. So, you're not alone!

On the front: "I did this in 10th grade. I told myself I needed to feel the pain I caused, that it was a cry for help, etc. Really I was just bored, curious, and wanted to be messed up."
On the back: "I still feel like such a poser.
This one got torn up a little bit in the mail. And I don't know if everyone can tell, because even for me the picture was somewhat hard to make out, it's a picture of a scar on the person's hip. This card made me really sad. As someone who has battled with depression and various forms of... shall we call it 'coping mechanisms'... I understand this feeling. But don't feel like a "poser". That's such a stupid word. People do things like that for all kinds of reasons. There is no 'right one' and whatever yours was is just as valid. That being said, it doesn't make it a good thing and I hope that one time was enough to teach you that. I also hope that you are happier with yourself now.

Thanks so much for sharing this with me!

Also to the sender with a best friend who has little time: I know exactly how this feels. Since being in college I rarely see my best friend and I hate it. I try so hard to make time but she always seems to already have plans or obligations. And this really hurts me since I have a hard enough time making close friends not to mention keeping them. Hopefully it will get better. And if it doesn't- I'll be your friend and you can talk to me (anonymously if you want) anytime!

OOOOOH There are so many I need to comment on! Anyway, here are my other 5:

"PARANOID. I check behind the shower curtain every time I enter the bathroom"
I do this too! I'm glad I'm not the only one! What's worse is that every time I'm absolutely SURE I'm going to find someone in there.

"I masturbate almost everyday. I'm a girl." and then there's a little kitty drawing that's saying "The only safe sex is self-sex!"
Teehee! I love this one. And to the sender: Don't feel weird. You are definitely not the only girl like this by far.

"I love my dad... But I can't remember if I've ever told him"
To the sender: If you don't know if you ever told him... then go tell him now! And if for whatever reason you can't, I'm sure he knows without you having to say it.

"I wasn't supposed to be in town to see the leaves change, but I never applied to any colleges."
This is such a beautiful card. They glued real fall leaves on it! I love it especially because where I live the leaves don't have pretty colours like that. They just go from green to brown and then fall off.

"Sometimes the only reason I don't say hurtful things back to you is so that I can fantasize about pointing out the difference in our behaviors and making you feel bad."
And on the back: "Of course, I know it wouldn't work, which is why it remains a fantasy."
This one really struck a note with me because I know personally I have done things like this before. And always afterwards I wonder if this really makes me a better person or if I'm really just as bad (or worse) for being so manipulative.

I've been so busy lately that I haven't gotten a chance to catch up on this board. 29 PAGES ALREADY!? Wow. All of these are so amazing so far. I can't wait for more! Anyway, I got 6 cards today and 4 yesterday. I think I'll post them in 2 sets of 5 so it's not too overloaded.

"Everynight my husband works 3rd shift, before going to sleep, I check under the bed for monsters."
I think this one is so sweet! Love it!

"I miss typewriters. Advancements in technology scares me. (But I would be lost w/out my 'puter! LOL")
This made me giggle a lot. But I understand what they mean. Sometimes I think technology really detracts from how great some "old" stuff really is. Like typewriters!

On the front: "I feel like a hypocrite when I talk about the environment."
On the back: "I don't make a conscious effort to conserve energy or save the environment but I still complain about how wasteful we are."
I understand this one a lot. Sometimes 'talking the talk' is easier than 'walking the walk'. Although for this specific person I would say to go read "The Lazy Environmentalist"... it's got a lot of good tips for living 'green' without too much effort.

"I WILL NEVER lose the weight"
To this sender: I wish you luck in trying and hope you find more confidence. Even if you never lose the weight you'll still be beautiful!

"I have lived in fear for so long I am afraid to be Free"
This card made me really sad. It's so beautiful too - the little door of the cage opens and everything! To the sender: I hope you can find your freedom. I truly believe once you do it will be worth it. It's far easier to breathe in the open air.

EDIT: How do I make my pictures bigger??
EDIT 2: Nevermind, I figured it out.
