  1. Well, I now have another SAT study issue at hand and that is organization. For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying my best to study for the SAT efficiently, but I always fail at this because I’m just not organized! I have about five SAT Prep books (CB’s blue book, Boot Camp for Your Brain, Barrons How to Prepare for the New SAT 2007, Kaplan SAT Comprehensive Program 2007, and Acing the NEW SAT I Math), tons of practice tests (QaS’s, CB practice tests, and other tests from the books mentioned above), three – four SAT Prep websites (number2.com, smartdoodle.com, ePrep for the SAT, and SATMathPro.com – though I think I will only stick to all except smartdoodle), and tons of vocabulary resources to check out (should I memorize SparkNotes words, BCFYB words, Barron’s words, ePrep’s words…which ones??!) + a lot of practice questions. I have SO many materials to use, that I don’t know how to cover them all..and it’s driving me crazy! I don’t want to get a little bit of this and a little bit of that because in the end, I will end up covering only a little information. I only have 29 days left until I attempt my second and last chance to improve my SAT score..there is NO way I can move my date to December (I already did that when I was originally going to take it in October), because I still need to take the SAT IIs before January. Please help me – I really want to study efficiently in these coming weeks, and I know I can improve my score significantly if I dilligently keep up with that. Many people have improved their scores immensely by studying for only a month and I know I can do the same!

    For some of the books I have (such as Kaplans, Boot Camp, etc.), I’ve marked the only areas that might have important info and/or practice questions. I’ve skipped all the intro stuff that I already know from before, so, in some way, the work in some SAT Prep books is cut down for me. This month I want to focus more on practice and less on strategies and concepts. Practice makes perfect, so yes, this is what I want to do. The problem is though, I don’t want to ditch any prep books because they might have important information that could be useful and I don’t want to miss that.

    I don’t want to make this post super long, so I’m just going to list information on the time and work availability I have to study for the SAT throughout an entire week. Maybe this will aid someone who is willing to help me out.

    I’m a homeschooled student, so I don’t need to worry about going to school and having tons of homework when I come home. My schedule is something like this:

    Monday – Saturday: 6:00 am to 4:00 pm (sometimes 5:00 pm) – this is the amount of time I give myself each day to study for the SAT. Then from 4 or 5:00 pm to about 10:00 -10:30 pm I work on my schoolwork. This schedule isn’t followed on Sunday though – I try to study for the SAT for the entire day if possible. I will also probably ditch my schoolwork for the last two weeks of October and focus more on the SAT (I know it’s such a silly idea, but I guess I need the time.)

    I got a 1550 (460CR/510M/580W) on my first try on the SAT, and I’m aiming for a 2000 if not a 2100+ this time around. I know I could do this, since Math and Writing are the easiest to improve on the SAT, but I’ll try my best with Critical Reading. Like everyone says, “It’s easy to move from a 1500 to a 1900 or 2000, but it’s not so easy to move from a 2100 to a 2300”. So I’m sure I could reach my goal if I put forth some effort into it.

    I hope no one starts lecturing me by saying that I had so much time in the summer to study for this..yes, I know I did, but for some reason, it was hard for me to get back to studying. After prepping for about 4 months nonstop for my first SAT, I felt tired and my motivation level was down the drain. I don’t know why..I just couldn’t study. I studied on and off here and there during the summer though, but it wasn’t an amount that could significantly impact my score (although it did help in some cases such as vocab and Math). So please..I would appreciate if you guys could help me more than you could scold me. D:

    Well, that’s that. I guess I’ve said enough. I know I’ve been a terrible nuisance already, so out of the goodness in your heart, I hope that you could help me out of this dilemma.

    I’d really appreciate it.

  3. I don’t know how we got here and I don’t want to think this would be the coarse of our life. I love you and I don’t want to see you in this situation and these sercimstance. I want you to move away from here Im sorry all I left was this letter and Im sorry Iv boughten you to this level of low. All I want is for you to please move back with your parents and try to get yourself cleaned up Im going into rehab and I am going to send you a letter as often as I can. I love you and Im missing you.. Goodbye Lisa
    Love Roger
    p.s. I will send you some cash to help you along as often as I can.

    “She places the letter on the coffee table and sinks to the floor sobbing looking around the room to find some comfort, unable to, afraid to. I turned away walking tword my car hoping to feel like I did the right thing by the time I reached it. As I gripped the handle I felt the urge to run back into the house and tell her how much she means to me but the thought of the bottle littered living room and the piss stained carpet made me sick. I felt the need to burn the place down when I thought about it, I really hated that place. I got in my car and drove away, although I had no clue where I was heading or what I was going to do I just knew I needed to get away. I drove for a few days and managed to find a small town, which was a little odd given the fact that I lived in somewhat of a south of nowhere area I normally have trouble finding a stor just to get milk. Living in Nevada isnt as glamorous as most would have you think, its full of hot air, drugs, dirt, and sex, not much to my taste. Yet the drugs did take hold and the dirt became a part of me. Its not something I want to think about often.”
    “Its alright you don’t need to talk about anything you don’t want to this is your time to speak.”
    D.r. Perrie tries so hard to be understanding but I guess he is just a little new at the shrink game I understand him wanting to do well. He wears the same outfit every time I come for my session, perfectly polished black dress shoes, black cackie pants, a casual white button up and a red striped tie. But I will admit the lack of change dose make me a little more comfortable in a meager sort of way.
    “So tell me why did you stop in this town?”
    “I needed to sleep I hadn’t slept for a couple of days and I needed to calm down I could feel my body detoxing and it burned me yet was strangely cold. Anyway I stopped at a small diner to get something to eat, when I walked in a young boy asked me if I was alright and said I looked sickly pail and I was sweating uncontrollably, I told him I was fine yet he helped me to my seat anyway I humored him and thanked him. I sat down in the booth ad glanced around the room there was a man with a rather large moustache picking his teeth constantly smacking his lips driving me insane. All the booths and the walls were painted the same red and white staring around the room made me feel dizzy and faint. Finally my waitress came up a young freckled faced red headed girl asked me if I wanted some coffee, by the time I hade agreed she had already started to poor the thick black coffee. The taste of the milky black brew tore my stomach in two I felt as tho I would hurl. She came back with a small menu and stared at me as if I already knew what I wanted. I skimmed through the menu and asked for some eggs over easy and some hash browns. I felt paranoid and scared as I walked up to the counter to grad a brochure and a pen. When I got back to my table the man with the mustache was picking and smacking again. I wanted to lung up and tear his teeth away from his face but I held it in. I started writing on the back of the brochure.”

    Dear Mr. & Mrs.Redworth
    I know I am not your favorite person But I want you to know I am going into rehab and I would like for you to go to the house and pick up Lisa I want her to have a better life than this please don’t put her out for my mistakes. I told her she should move back in with you and That she should get cleaned up too. So if you could please please please take your daughter back in until she gets her feet back I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you in advanced
    Roger
    “Yes, well I am afraid this is all the time we have for today so I will see you in a few days then?”
    “Sure, sure…. um- well I will talk to you next time doc.”

    Walking out of Dr.Perries office I realize that I hadn’t checked in on Lisa in quite a bit of time.
    I can feel her image pouring into my mind how sick it makes me, how long its been. I hate it. The long hallways make me feel like I cant reach the end no matter how long I walk, as if this place is all I know. As I round the corner I walk tword the doors and a man stops me.
    “Please sign out sir.”
    I sign my name and walk out the doors and walk to my car. The streets here are long and empty freckled and spotted with stores. I have to drive about four towns away to see her. I hope she’s home. I pull onto the freeway and drive south driving fur
    thank you i will fix the spelling errors and the present past tense errors

  4. I am a make up artist and I have a job also in retail which is a full time part time job. I recently have been the only one working on my big counter by myself and working extremely hard and taking on a huge international visit from head office too all while my manager was holidaying for the time.

    I have been going in early and staying back to so I could make sure everything was immaculate and didnt miss any sales. And it was notice by my area manager all the hard work and effort i have put in.

    By boss the manager for my counter came back recently and I have been so drained and over worked trying to build my career and get noticed more. Today it is the day before mothers day and I had a make up job in the morning before work so I went and did it but I was not feeling 100% I have come down with a bug. I asked my boss if I could push back my starting time to 12 to 1 pm so I could not rush and take it easy. I was very sick while doing the make up and did a really quick job. My dad can and picked me up so he could take me to work and I felt sick in the car and had to vomit so i was running late to work and called and side I was running late for work. I then really was not feeling well and my dad turned the car around and really didnt want to take me to work even though I was pushing myself to just go and do it due to my boss being anrgy at me.

    I called the david jones store manager and she was very understanding and was the only person who would answer the phone. She let my boss for my counter know I was sick and not up for coming in. But she was saying I would appericaate if she would come in for a few hours. By that comment I felt that she didnt understand or believe I was sick! even though the boss of David Jones totally agreed with my dad and said it was best for me to not come in.

    I feel very upset and stressed that I am going to be treated unfairly and also that she is not greatfull that I have worked very hard by myself for a few weeks.

    I am considering leaving but its not because of this its the whole industry cause I cant stand these stupid targets and bookings I have to get when no one is buying any more and buying everything online.
    I stress so much about this stupid job and I love the perks but I cant stand the pressure which is not achievable because of this stupid economy and they just dont want to understand!

    What is your opionion on my life stress ??? what do you think I should do ???
    Am I wrong??

  5. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  6. Can u give me your Opinion on My writing about a Serial Killer who targets those Attracted to Him?
    “Did you see the new girl Eason she’s definately easy on the eyes” Nicolas said.
    “No, I haven’t Eason replied not looking up from his magazine”.
    She came walking into the room. Wearing a pencil knee length skirt and a low cut shirt with her cleavage spilling over. It was a sight to see for the men in the office. Women whispered amongst themselves in disgust.
    She walked towards the two men who were sitting in front of her desk.
    “Hi I’m Elizabeth Gray but u you can call me Liz’ she told Nicolas.
    “You are absolutely beautiful Liz, no offense” he stated.
    “Oh no offense taken” she noticed Eason and how handsome he was .
    She found it rude how he didn’t take his eyes off the magazine. He was the only man in the room who seemed not interested.
    ‘And u are?” she asked boldly with a grin.
    Eason slowly looked up starting from toe until he met her face.
    “Slut” he thought to himself.
    “Hello I’m Eason” he extended his hand although he didn’t want to.
    “Firm grip you have there Eason, I Love Strong men she joked”
    He was not moved and felt the need to get away but forced a laugh.
    Looking at her neck his imagination went wild.
    Placing his hands around her neck is what he craved.
    Squeezing the life out of her. He began to feel as if he’d break out in a sweat.
    “Would you excuse me ? I have to go to the men’s room” he smiled.
    “It was really nice to meet you” he got up.
    “What was that about ?” she turned and asked Nicolas. with confusion written across her face
    “He is very shy” but are you married if you don’t mind me asking.
    “No, but is he?” she asked.
    Nicolas realised she was attracted to his friend and not him. A huge blow to his ego.
    “Why don’t you ask him” Nicolas replied walking away he saw it was no use talking to her if she wasn’t interested in sleeping with him. Anyone with sense knew what type of guy he was. She was drawn to Eason he seemed like such the perfect gentleman. She was tired of dating jerks.

    Eason calmed himself down.Tossing some water on his face. The monster within him wanted to place his fantasy of killing Elizabeth Gray into action. In due time he told himself.
    About:

    Eason was molested by his mother which is why he hate women who comes on to him. He meets and falls in love with a Cop. The hero in the story who actually falls for the villain. She is assigned to solve the case of missing women in their area. Eason has never felt love before so he is obsessed and want to change his evil ways for the Cop…He only fell for her because she avoided him for so long (she has her own issues with men which is why she’d rather not date but she gives him a chance)

    The problem is the Villain is EXTREMELY handsome and u can’t help but notice him (he doesn’t want to be noticed)
    Ted Bundy killed Random Women…This guy only strikes those who actually like him and he falls in love and wants to change
    He is digusted with his mother who sexually abused him as a child so any form of affection from women in a “GOOD” way throws him off He hates dirty Easy women

  7. I’ll keep it short, but after some drama/grief with Facebook and some severe cyberbullying/stalking…I decided to pull my Facebook off the internet, change my phone number and experiment with trying to use google voice as an easy way to mask my personal cell should anyone ever give me any personal grief ever again. The thing I thought I would like about Google Voice was that it generates a local number that people can call or text, and it goes straight to your cell. And for me and my sanity, I can easily change the Google number to another random local number if people start to abuse that number, and it doesn’t affect my personal cell or me having to change it with Sprint. I figured my family and VERY close friends could call me on my real cell, so they wouldn’t have to go through all the identification filtering when they call, and my trusted friends could text me on my personal cell line. I found out today how little I knew about Google Voice, and about what it has been doing with my ignorance.

    I’m on the Sprint Network, btw.

    For about a day things seemed fine, until I found out today that 9 people had tried to call me and my phone never rang even once. I got their voicemails after the fact, as well as missed call notifications through my gmail. Apparently, my family I gave out my original cell to said when they called it said something like “We’re sorry, but we could not complete your call” and it cut them off. They tried to call me on my Google Voice, but some told me it went though the identification process, and it just rang and rang. My family said they tried calling the Google number and all it did was ring and ring like it was going through, then forwarded to my voice mail. I will say that today I was home all day, and after I found all this out, I did a test both on my Dad’s cell and the house phone….and it confirmed everyone’s problems. I missed out on going out with some friends because I never got the call, my mother tried to call me about something important and got really angry with me that I never got her calls, saying “Why didn’t you answer your phone….it rang and rang and rang!!!” Basically I ended up with a lot of frustrated and angry people today because Google Voice has severely messed up and taken over my cell phone.

    I really want to keep Google Voice, but I also want people to have the ability to call me on my real cell who have it so they don’t have to go through the ID filtering process. I really don’t want to give up this service, because socially it gives me some security and peace of mind when I say, meet a girl and it doesn’t work out….or a guy friend I meet starts to give me poblems…both which have happened….and then I don’t have to switch my personal cell and go through the frustrating process of having to give it out to the 50+ people that need to have the real one.

    I will also say, that because I was home….and because I am with Sprint….I live in an area of town that gets poor cell reception from my provider, and they were nice to give me a Sprint Airrave device, which boosts your signal bars to full and hooks up via a GPS that sticks to the window and connects via your high speed internet to access the cell network. I did not leave the house today, and home is where I am most of the time….so this is a huge problem/concern for me. Is this device in any way keeping/hindering people from connecting to me when I am at home???

    I could really use help. I can’t receive calls from anyone….texts through Google Voice yes…but no phone calls and my phone is severely messed up. I would have called Sprint but they are closed until tomorrow morning, so there’s nothing about it I can do for now. How do I separate my two phone numbers and still have people use Google Voice for those I want to give it out to???

    Help severely needed. Thanks!

  9. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  10. Iv known this guy since i was 17 years old, i am now 23 and hes about to be 24 soon.

    We first met through mutual friends and right off the bat he liked me. I didn’t get why he liked me so much so fast and it scared me. Our friends kept telling me just to give him a chance.I finally decided a few days later why not? so my best friends and her bf went out and asked us two to tag along, I wasn’t thinking at the time that this was a double date. We all went to dinner and a movie after and at the end of the night we said our goodbyes and i went back to my friends house to spend that night. I remember laying there in bed thinking “i cant do this” so i told her and she told me just to tell him how i felt. so i text him and let him know i thought he was a great guy i just didn’t wanna be in anything right now.

    About a year later i had seen him around and i started to realize that i made a BIG mistake on letting him go. I told my friend and she told me to tell him how i feel. So i did, i got up the courage and told him. But to my surprise i didn’t know he had a girlfriend. He told me he knows it wasn’t easy for me to say that and that any guy would be lucky to be with me, but hes a a relationship and he didn’t want to mess that up. So i respected that.

    About a year later i found out him and his girlfriend didn’t work out. we had started talking and i invited him over to our friends house one night, i remember being super excited to see him and see what would happen. That whole night we just kept flirting and everyone noticed something was there. About 2 days later i wanted to tell him i still felt and so i got up the courage once again and told him. He told me that he was sorry for giving me the wrong impression and he wasn’t looking for a relationship. I was kinda bummed but i got why he wasn’t looking for one.

    A year later we started talking again and he asked me if i wanted to hang out, so we made plans to met up and hang out. Well one thing led to another night and we ended up parking and making out. We talked a few times after that but i didn’t see him again until a year later.

    Another year later we start talking again and he asked me to come and hang out, My mind went straight to what had happen that one night and i said no. I told him i wanted to hang out without hooking up. He agreed and said ok sounds good. A few weeks later i asked him if he wanted to grab some drinks some where and hang out, he told me he couldn’t he already had plans, so i said ok next time. and that was the last time i heard from him.

    About 6 months ago we started talking again, he ended up moving to another area about 45 min away and before he left he goes and tells me hes gonna miss me and i need go up and visit.

    about 2 months ago he was back in the area visiting family and had text me asking if i wanted to hang out. i asked him hang out and do what? he said i was thinking we could grab something to eat and there is this music lounge we can go to and we can just hang. i told him wow for once it sounds like you don’t wanna hook up you actually wanna hang out. he said yeah well i feel like i haven’t been fair to you and i wanna make it up. i said good, im glad you see things like i do. Well i never ended up going because i had to work but about a week ago we were talking again and he wants me to go and visit him he said he wanted to go to the beach and dinner and stuff. he said he didn’t want to put a Label on it we can just see what happens. My question is should i go and see what happens or do you think hes just trying to get me there to maybe try something?? What is your opinion on the situation?

  11. We are having a practice GCSE controlled assessment and my English teacher said to get it checked by as many people as possible and to see their improvements and opinions of it so if there is anything you want to add or feel needs improving please do- It will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    The thick cluster of papers sat on the desk as he stared at it. It mocked Him, daring him to open it. It was paper and ink, nothing more so why was he so frightened to even touch it? It was the folder he’d been told never to look at, never to think about and he never had- it was under lock and key at all times. Well, Until now. Endless possibilities of groundings and punishment entered his thoughts but he was just stalling for time; the temptation was increasingly growing.
    With a deep breath he started to read, his heart beat dropping as letters formed words in his head. Why is this so secret? He thought. It just seemed like regular documentation but then he saw it; can someone have Two Birth certificates? Both had his pictures attached, his caramel skin and deep chocolate eyes made him easy to distinguish but one had a different name on- Matthew James Rew. Intrigued, he kept flicking the pages and found a newspaper article. “BOY MISSING”, it read, “Young boy Matthew Rew goes missing from the most protective tribal area in Cairns. Parents say Rew had walked off and never returned” Slam. Suddenly the familiar sound of the door and keys being taken out the look soon echoed the house. He briskly gathered the scattered papers and walked towards the fridge, grabbing himself a glass as he did so.
    “Oh Jacob, I didn’t realise you’d be up this earl…” The folder had quickly grabbed her attention. “Why is this here?!” she snapped, her worry lines becoming more predominate. Although a woman of small build at times Mary Freyold was very intimidating. Her short, spiky hair would immediately seem sharpened as if literally standing on end and her cheeks would flush to crimson.
    “Why is what there?” He shrugged pouring some orange juice acting as if he hadn’t noticed it and how furious it had made his mother.
    “This folder! Why is it here?!” his mother repeated raising her voice, radiating anger in every direction. Mad wasn’t the word. “You know what just forget it” she whispered trying to calm down. Grabbing the folder she left the room muttering to herself, no doubt to find Jacob’s father.

  13. I don’t know how we got here and I don’t want to think this would be the coarse of our life. I love you and I don’t want to see you in this situation and these sercimstance. I want you to move away from here Im sorry all I left was this letter and Im sorry Iv boughten you to this level of low. All I want is for you to please move back with your parents and try to get yourself cleaned up Im going into rehab and I am going to send you a letter as often as I can. I love you and Im missing you.. Goodbye Lisa
    Love Roger
    p.s. I will send you some cash to help you along as often as I can.

    “She places the letter on the coffee table and sinks to the floor sobbing looking around the room to find some comfort, unable to, afraid to. I turned away walking tword my car hoping to feel like I did the right thing by the time I reached it. As I gripped the handle I felt the urge to run back into the house and tell her how much she means to me but the thought of the bottle littered living room and the piss stained carpet made me sick. I felt the need to burn the place down when I thought about it, I really hated that place. I got in my car and drove away, although I had no clue where I was heading or what I was going to do I just knew I needed to get away. I drove for a few days and managed to find a small town, which was a little odd given the fact that I lived in somewhat of a south of nowhere area I normally have trouble finding a stor just to get milk. Living in Nevada isnt as glamorous as most would have you think, its full of hot air, drugs, dirt, and sex, not much to my taste. Yet the drugs did take hold and the dirt became a part of me. Its not something I want to think about often.”
    “Its alright you don’t need to talk about anything you don’t want to this is your time to speak.”
    D.r. Perrie tries so hard to be understanding but I guess he is just a little new at the shrink game I understand him wanting to do well. He wears the same outfit every time I come for my session, perfectly polished black dress shoes, black cackie pants, a casual white button up and a red striped tie. But I will admit the lack of change dose make me a little more comfortable in a meager sort of way.
    “So tell me why did you stop in this town?”
    “I needed to sleep I hadn’t slept for a couple of days and I needed to calm down I could feel my body detoxing and it burned me yet was strangely cold. Anyway I stopped at a small diner to get something to eat, when I walked in a young boy asked me if I was alright and said I looked sickly pail and I was sweating uncontrollably, I told him I was fine yet he helped me to my seat anyway I humored him and thanked him. I sat down in the booth ad glanced around the room there was a man with a rather large moustache picking his teeth constantly smacking his lips driving me insane. All the booths and the walls were painted the same red and white staring around the room made me feel dizzy and faint. Finally my waitress came up a young freckled faced red headed girl asked me if I wanted some coffee, by the time I hade agreed she had already started to poor the thick black coffee. The taste of the milky black brew tore my stomach in two I felt as tho I would hurl. She came back with a small menu and stared at me as if I already knew what I wanted. I skimmed through the menu and asked for some eggs over easy and some hash browns. I felt paranoid and scared as I walked up to the counter to grad a brochure and a pen. When I got back to my table the man with the mustache was picking and smacking again. I wanted to lung up and tear his teeth away from his face but I held it in. I started writing on the back of the brochure.”

    Dear Mr. & Mrs.Redworth
    I know I am not your favorite person But I want you to know I am going into rehab and I would like for you to go to the house and pick up Lisa I want her to have a better life than this please don’t put her out for my mistakes. I told her she should move back in with you and That she should get cleaned up too. So if you could please please please take your daughter back in until she gets her feet back I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you in advanced
    Roger
    “Yes, well I am afraid this is all the time we have for today so I will see you in a few days then?”
    “Sure, sure…. um- well I will talk to you next time doc.”

    Walking out of Dr.Perries office I realize that I hadn’t checked in on Lisa in quite a bit of time.
    I can feel her image pouring into my mind how sick it makes me, how long its been. I hate it. The long hallways make me feel like I cant reach the end no matter how long I walk, as if this place is all I know. As I round the corner I walk tword the doors and a man stops me.
    “Please sign out sir.”
    I sign my name and walk out the doors and walk to my car. The streets here are long and empty freckled and spotted with stores. I have to drive about four towns away to see her. I hope she’s home. I pull onto the freeway and drive south driving fur
    thank you i will fix the spelling errors and the present past tense errors

  16. I’ll keep it short, but after some drama/grief with Facebook and some severe cyberbullying/stalking…I decided to pull my Facebook off the internet, change my phone number and experiment with trying to use google voice as an easy way to mask my personal cell should anyone ever give me any personal grief ever again. The thing I thought I would like about Google Voice was that it generates a local number that people can call or text, and it goes straight to your cell. And for me and my sanity, I can easily change the Google number to another random local number if people start to abuse that number, and it doesn’t affect my personal cell or me having to change it with Sprint. I figured my family and VERY close friends could call me on my real cell, so they wouldn’t have to go through all the identification filtering when they call, and my trusted friends could text me on my personal cell line. I found out today how little I knew about Google Voice, and about what it has been doing with my ignorance.

    I’m on the Sprint Network, btw.

    For about a day things seemed fine, until I found out today that 9 people had tried to call me and my phone never rang even once. I got their voicemails after the fact, as well as missed call notifications through my gmail. Apparently, my family I gave out my original cell to said when they called it said something like “We’re sorry, but we could not complete your call” and it cut them off. They tried to call me on my Google Voice, but some told me it went though the identification process, and it just rang and rang. My family said they tried calling the Google number and all it did was ring and ring like it was going through, then forwarded to my voice mail. I will say that today I was home all day, and after I found all this out, I did a test both on my Dad’s cell and the house phone….and it confirmed everyone’s problems. I missed out on going out with some friends because I never got the call, my mother tried to call me about something important and got really angry with me that I never got her calls, saying “Why didn’t you answer your phone….it rang and rang and rang!!!” Basically I ended up with a lot of frustrated and angry people today because Google Voice has severely messed up and taken over my cell phone.

    I really want to keep Google Voice, but I also want people to have the ability to call me on my real cell who have it so they don’t have to go through the ID filtering process. I really don’t want to give up this service, because socially it gives me some security and peace of mind when I say, meet a girl and it doesn’t work out….or a guy friend I meet starts to give me poblems…both which have happened….and then I don’t have to switch my personal cell and go through the frustrating process of having to give it out to the 50+ people that need to have the real one.

    I will also say, that because I was home….and because I am with Sprint….I live in an area of town that gets poor cell reception from my provider, and they were nice to give me a Sprint Airrave device, which boosts your signal bars to full and hooks up via a GPS that sticks to the window and connects via your high speed internet to access the cell network. I did not leave the house today, and home is where I am most of the time….so this is a huge problem/concern for me. Is this device in any way keeping/hindering people from connecting to me when I am at home???

    I could really use help. I can’t receive calls from anyone….texts through Google Voice yes…but no phone calls and my phone is severely messed up. I would have called Sprint but they are closed until tomorrow morning, so there’s nothing about it I can do for now. How do I separate my two phone numbers and still have people use Google Voice for those I want to give it out to???

    Help severely needed. Thanks!

  17. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  18. Well, I now have another SAT study issue at hand and that is organization. For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying my best to study for the SAT efficiently, but I always fail at this because I’m just not organized! I have about five SAT Prep books (CB’s blue book, Boot Camp for Your Brain, Barrons How to Prepare for the New SAT 2007, Kaplan SAT Comprehensive Program 2007, and Acing the NEW SAT I Math), tons of practice tests (QaS’s, CB practice tests, and other tests from the books mentioned above), three – four SAT Prep websites (number2.com, smartdoodle.com, ePrep for the SAT, and SATMathPro.com – though I think I will only stick to all except smartdoodle), and tons of vocabulary resources to check out (should I memorize SparkNotes words, BCFYB words, Barron’s words, ePrep’s words…which ones??!) + a lot of practice questions. I have SO many materials to use, that I don’t know how to cover them all..and it’s driving me crazy! I don’t want to get a little bit of this and a little bit of that because in the end, I will end up covering only a little information. I only have 29 days left until I attempt my second and last chance to improve my SAT score..there is NO way I can move my date to December (I already did that when I was originally going to take it in October), because I still need to take the SAT IIs before January. Please help me – I really want to study efficiently in these coming weeks, and I know I can improve my score significantly if I dilligently keep up with that. Many people have improved their scores immensely by studying for only a month and I know I can do the same!

    For some of the books I have (such as Kaplans, Boot Camp, etc.), I’ve marked the only areas that might have important info and/or practice questions. I’ve skipped all the intro stuff that I already know from before, so, in some way, the work in some SAT Prep books is cut down for me. This month I want to focus more on practice and less on strategies and concepts. Practice makes perfect, so yes, this is what I want to do. The problem is though, I don’t want to ditch any prep books because they might have important information that could be useful and I don’t want to miss that.

    I don’t want to make this post super long, so I’m just going to list information on the time and work availability I have to study for the SAT throughout an entire week. Maybe this will aid someone who is willing to help me out.

    I’m a homeschooled student, so I don’t need to worry about going to school and having tons of homework when I come home. My schedule is something like this:

    Monday – Saturday: 6:00 am to 4:00 pm (sometimes 5:00 pm) – this is the amount of time I give myself each day to study for the SAT. Then from 4 or 5:00 pm to about 10:00 -10:30 pm I work on my schoolwork. This schedule isn’t followed on Sunday though – I try to study for the SAT for the entire day if possible. I will also probably ditch my schoolwork for the last two weeks of October and focus more on the SAT (I know it’s such a silly idea, but I guess I need the time.)

    I got a 1550 (460CR/510M/580W) on my first try on the SAT, and I’m aiming for a 2000 if not a 2100+ this time around. I know I could do this, since Math and Writing are the easiest to improve on the SAT, but I’ll try my best with Critical Reading. Like everyone says, “It’s easy to move from a 1500 to a 1900 or 2000, but it’s not so easy to move from a 2100 to a 2300”. So I’m sure I could reach my goal if I put forth some effort into it.

    I hope no one starts lecturing me by saying that I had so much time in the summer to study for this..yes, I know I did, but for some reason, it was hard for me to get back to studying. After prepping for about 4 months nonstop for my first SAT, I felt tired and my motivation level was down the drain. I don’t know why..I just couldn’t study. I studied on and off here and there during the summer though, but it wasn’t an amount that could significantly impact my score (although it did help in some cases such as vocab and Math). So please..I would appreciate if you guys could help me more than you could scold me. D:

    Well, that’s that. I guess I’ve said enough. I know I’ve been a terrible nuisance already, so out of the goodness in your heart, I hope that you could help me out of this dilemma.

    I’d really appreciate it.

  19. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  21. Iv known this guy since i was 17 years old, i am now 23 and hes about to be 24 soon.

    We first met through mutual friends and right off the bat he liked me. I didn’t get why he liked me so much so fast and it scared me. Our friends kept telling me just to give him a chance.I finally decided a few days later why not? so my best friends and her bf went out and asked us two to tag along, I wasn’t thinking at the time that this was a double date. We all went to dinner and a movie after and at the end of the night we said our goodbyes and i went back to my friends house to spend that night. I remember laying there in bed thinking “i cant do this” so i told her and she told me just to tell him how i felt. so i text him and let him know i thought he was a great guy i just didn’t wanna be in anything right now.

    About a year later i had seen him around and i started to realize that i made a BIG mistake on letting him go. I told my friend and she told me to tell him how i feel. So i did, i got up the courage and told him. But to my surprise i didn’t know he had a girlfriend. He told me he knows it wasn’t easy for me to say that and that any guy would be lucky to be with me, but hes a a relationship and he didn’t want to mess that up. So i respected that.

    About a year later i found out him and his girlfriend didn’t work out. we had started talking and i invited him over to our friends house one night, i remember being super excited to see him and see what would happen. That whole night we just kept flirting and everyone noticed something was there. About 2 days later i wanted to tell him i still felt and so i got up the courage once again and told him. He told me that he was sorry for giving me the wrong impression and he wasn’t looking for a relationship. I was kinda bummed but i got why he wasn’t looking for one.

    A year later we started talking again and he asked me if i wanted to hang out, so we made plans to met up and hang out. Well one thing led to another night and we ended up parking and making out. We talked a few times after that but i didn’t see him again until a year later.

    Another year later we start talking again and he asked me to come and hang out, My mind went straight to what had happen that one night and i said no. I told him i wanted to hang out without hooking up. He agreed and said ok sounds good. A few weeks later i asked him if he wanted to grab some drinks some where and hang out, he told me he couldn’t he already had plans, so i said ok next time. and that was the last time i heard from him.

    About 6 months ago we started talking again, he ended up moving to another area about 45 min away and before he left he goes and tells me hes gonna miss me and i need go up and visit.

    about 2 months ago he was back in the area visiting family and had text me asking if i wanted to hang out. i asked him hang out and do what? he said i was thinking we could grab something to eat and there is this music lounge we can go to and we can just hang. i told him wow for once it sounds like you don’t wanna hook up you actually wanna hang out. he said yeah well i feel like i haven’t been fair to you and i wanna make it up. i said good, im glad you see things like i do. Well i never ended up going because i had to work but about a week ago we were talking again and he wants me to go and visit him he said he wanted to go to the beach and dinner and stuff. he said he didn’t want to put a Label on it we can just see what happens. My question is should i go and see what happens or do you think hes just trying to get me there to maybe try something?? What is your opinion on the situation?

  22. Hi girls and guys. I’m in my second semester in Physics school at the moment, studying for a Calc II exam. First of all, a few words about uni in my country: You get evaluated with a grade from 1 to 10 (no A’s), and to pass, you need to get over 5 or more grades. My school lasts 4 years, and let’s face it, Physics isn’t an easy subject, so the average completion time is 6 years. When I got into university, I was very happy and said to myself that I’ll finish in 4 years and ignore the statistics.

    Seems like I was overestimating myself. Don’t get me wrong, I was an excellent student in high school (after the 7th grade, all my grades were over 19 out of 20) and managed to do so without excessive studying, just by paying attention to classes, going well in most tests, doing my homework and studying some days before finals. So anyway, first semester comes…I was attending EVERY single lesson and was overenthusiastic about it up to the middle of the semester, and even after that I missed only few lessons. But still, I just wouldn’t sit down to study and said ‘I’ll study the month before the exams’, thinking I’d do much like that. Of course, I passed only 3 out of 7 lessons, and believe me, it really hurt me. I recognized it was my wrong, and my parents knew that so they tried to calm me down, telling me it’s the first touch with university, you’ll eventually learn how to study etc.

    I got into the second semester with a harder motive. Suddenly, every Calculus II assignment I was given would be completed and given to the professor. First grades? 7.5/10, 8.5/10, 9.5/10. I just couldn’t believe I did so well! Math started looking easy, even though they were more advanced and I hadn’t passed Calc I. I attended all of the harder courses (like Atomic Physics) and managed to miss around 3 lessons only. Even though I was a bit lazy about that, I completed all the lab reports, and did great in the lab exams. I was certain the rest of the exams would go very well.

    And again, I flunked. I didn’t pass Atomic Physics, I didn’t pass Inorganic Chemistry, and tomorrow I’m sitting the Calc II exams, as I said. While my progress was great, I believe I started studying a little too late (a.k.a. crammed one day before the exams) so I don’t have hope on that. Anyway, that means I’ll have around 8 out of 13 lessons not-passed in the first year. What a great way to start!

    I want to be completely honest with myself. I didn’t put all the effort I should have, I procrastinated, I crammed, and I was too laid back. But I’m a person that likes science, I love my school, and this makes me sad and angry with myself. I had those feelings too back in the 1st semester, and I thought I’d improve in the second, but I went worse! There are exams about all first year’s classes again in September, and while I really want to try harder and reduce the un-passed lessons, I know I’ll find a way to procrastinate and not pass.

    Dear friends, I really want to do better. I’m not a lazy dude who came to uni for ‘the chicks’, I have dreams and I want to get a PhD, then work in fascinating scientific areas. But this is no good start for big dreams! I just can’t stay motivated! And I know this failure will get me in the summer.

    I need your advice! Am I right to worry too much? Thank you!
    @Mary: I wouldn’t expect such a subjective answer by a Top Contributor. First of all, I didn’t get bad grades, I just didn’t PASS the lessons. I can sit them again as many times as I want. Secondly, my problem is not the grades, I’m just asking how to cope with early failure. Believe me, my Atomic Physics professor told us that he wasn’t too ‘religious’ in studying the first years, yet the man is an Associate Professor, is a Corresponding Fellow in the CERN experiment, oh, and he has a PhD too.
    No need to mention his 80 publication in international scientific magazines with judges!
    @Shine: 5/10 is the minimum for all schools of all universities in my country. It’s part of the educational law, and I agree it’s just too low for a subject like Physics.

    But there’s something you can do: on your exam paper, you can write a minimum pass quota you wish to have; for example, if you chase a good mark, you can ask the professor to ‘fail’ you if you get under a certain grade.

  23. I don’t know how we got here and I don’t want to think this would be the coarse of our life. I love you and I don’t want to see you in this situation and these sercimstance. I want you to move away from here Im sorry all I left was this letter and Im sorry Iv boughten you to this level of low. All I want is for you to please move back with your parents and try to get yourself cleaned up Im going into rehab and I am going to send you a letter as often as I can. I love you and Im missing you.. Goodbye Lisa
    Love Roger
    p.s. I will send you some cash to help you along as often as I can.

    “She places the letter on the coffee table and sinks to the floor sobbing looking around the room to find some comfort, unable to, afraid to. I turned away walking tword my car hoping to feel like I did the right thing by the time I reached it. As I gripped the handle I felt the urge to run back into the house and tell her how much she means to me but the thought of the bottle littered living room and the piss stained carpet made me sick. I felt the need to burn the place down when I thought about it, I really hated that place. I got in my car and drove away, although I had no clue where I was heading or what I was going to do I just knew I needed to get away. I drove for a few days and managed to find a small town, which was a little odd given the fact that I lived in somewhat of a south of nowhere area I normally have trouble finding a stor just to get milk. Living in Nevada isnt as glamorous as most would have you think, its full of hot air, drugs, dirt, and sex, not much to my taste. Yet the drugs did take hold and the dirt became a part of me. Its not something I want to think about often.”
    “Its alright you don’t need to talk about anything you don’t want to this is your time to speak.”
    D.r. Perrie tries so hard to be understanding but I guess he is just a little new at the shrink game I understand him wanting to do well. He wears the same outfit every time I come for my session, perfectly polished black dress shoes, black cackie pants, a casual white button up and a red striped tie. But I will admit the lack of change dose make me a little more comfortable in a meager sort of way.
    “So tell me why did you stop in this town?”
    “I needed to sleep I hadn’t slept for a couple of days and I needed to calm down I could feel my body detoxing and it burned me yet was strangely cold. Anyway I stopped at a small diner to get something to eat, when I walked in a young boy asked me if I was alright and said I looked sickly pail and I was sweating uncontrollably, I told him I was fine yet he helped me to my seat anyway I humored him and thanked him. I sat down in the booth ad glanced around the room there was a man with a rather large moustache picking his teeth constantly smacking his lips driving me insane. All the booths and the walls were painted the same red and white staring around the room made me feel dizzy and faint. Finally my waitress came up a young freckled faced red headed girl asked me if I wanted some coffee, by the time I hade agreed she had already started to poor the thick black coffee. The taste of the milky black brew tore my stomach in two I felt as tho I would hurl. She came back with a small menu and stared at me as if I already knew what I wanted. I skimmed through the menu and asked for some eggs over easy and some hash browns. I felt paranoid and scared as I walked up to the counter to grad a brochure and a pen. When I got back to my table the man with the mustache was picking and smacking again. I wanted to lung up and tear his teeth away from his face but I held it in. I started writing on the back of the brochure.”

    Dear Mr. & Mrs.Redworth
    I know I am not your favorite person But I want you to know I am going into rehab and I would like for you to go to the house and pick up Lisa I want her to have a better life than this please don’t put her out for my mistakes. I told her she should move back in with you and That she should get cleaned up too. So if you could please please please take your daughter back in until she gets her feet back I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you in advanced
    Roger
    “Yes, well I am afraid this is all the time we have for today so I will see you in a few days then?”
    “Sure, sure…. um- well I will talk to you next time doc.”

    Walking out of Dr.Perries office I realize that I hadn’t checked in on Lisa in quite a bit of time.
    I can feel her image pouring into my mind how sick it makes me, how long its been. I hate it. The long hallways make me feel like I cant reach the end no matter how long I walk, as if this place is all I know. As I round the corner I walk tword the doors and a man stops me.
    “Please sign out sir.”
    I sign my name and walk out the doors and walk to my car. The streets here are long and empty freckled and spotted with stores. I have to drive about four towns away to see her. I hope she’s home. I pull onto the freeway and drive south driving fur
    thank you i will fix the spelling errors and the present past tense errors

  24. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.

  25. All the spelling/grammar errors have been corrected. rate and review.any predictions???Input I’m looking for: high and low points, likes/dislikes, areas for construction, overall opinions.

    The Legacy
    1.

    A man of the age 32, stood at the front of his first class of the year. The business professor became more excited as the students slowly began to fill the rows of desks in front of him. He already observed that more that half the class was compiled of incoming freshman. The difference of how they carried themselves compared to upperclassmen was tremendous. He peeked at the roster of nineteen students before starting class.
    “I’m Alex Carraway,” he paused. “Please call me Alex. Now when I call your name I’d like you to stand and tell the class a little about yourself.” Albee Anderson was the first name he called. The students all replied with textbook-deep answers. It wasn’t until Alex was two thirds through the list until he became interested in one.
    “Ryan Logan.” The professor expected an English or Irish looking boy to stand up. Instead a girl with light brown hair and pale eyes stood up. The girl twirled a ring nervously around her pinky finger. Not only was her name familiar to Alex but her looks were too.
    “Your Ryan?” The class laughed. The girl nodded. I was already more intrigued about her name.
    “I’m here because it’s a family tradition,” she looked directly into Alex’s cobalt blue eyes as she said this.
    “Very interesting,” Alex commented. His mind re-winded one year. He could have remembered that face anywhere.
    “Do you have a sister named Natalie.” The young freshman nodded. “You look exactly like her. After Alex’s encounter with Natalie Logan’s younger sister all the other students seemed less significant than they did at the beginning of class.
    Later after attendance, Alex handed out the class syllabus and an overview. Many of the students, like usual, showed interest. Pleased with the first day of class, he let the students go early. As Miss Logan packed up her papers, Alex approached her after he packed his own bag up.
    Eager to see if she was anything like her sister, Alex asked her if he could walk her to her next class. “I’m only going to get coffee actually. You can come with me if you want.” She added after a short pause. Alex accepted her invitation with a nod.
    “So you were my sister’s teacher?”
    “She took several of my classes, yes. You remind me a lot of your sister. Are you two close?”
    “Yea, but she’s a lot older than me.” The two walked towards the coffee kiosk and waited in line.
    “Medium coffee, cream and sugar please.” Ryan told the barrista. Alex quickly remembered how Natalie preferred tea. Alex ordered a small Hazelnut, only to drop a five dollar bill on the counter before waiting on the other side of the kiosk.
    “ I was very close with your sister. She’s a very special girl,” Alex blurted out quickly. Ryan stared Alex directly in the eyes. Her eyes were squinted and smoldering. Alex could feel a red hot light beneath her icy, sea green eyes burning a hole in his own. They lingered on each other for several seconds before they grabbed her coffees.
    “I’m going this way,” Ryan broke the silence and motioned towards the English departments.
    “And, I’m going this way.” Alex pointed in the opposite direction. “I’ll see you in class,Ryan.” He smiled before turning and walking towards his residence. Alex was slightly confused by the interaction, slightly because of the way he acted and partially because of her reactions. Alex returned to the home he lived in on-campus with a headache ten minutes later.

    2. (3 weeks later)
    Alex
    I sat at my desk grading exams at 11 o’clock at night. Usually the job kept me up through the early hours of the morning. At this point I was frazzled and tied of reading sloppy handwriting. I returned to the living room and turned the television to channel 72. Disgusted by NFL, I flicked off the TV immediately. Instead I decided to go to bed early. As I layed alone in the dark room , my mind rapidly moved to where it had been over the past couple weeks.
    Ryan Logan.
    For one, the girl was nothing like Natalie. They had shared the same face but that was where it ended. Ryan was a sparky and sensuous girl, while her sister was more quiet and put together. With Ryan being around it had brought back the memories I had shared with Natalie. However feelings aroused in my head, leaving me wanting to see Ryan again.
    I lay on the coach in the living room, holding Natalie close to me. Her shampoo smelled that something like Champagne or Cider was intoxicating and soft like silk. her skin like a baby’s’, it was pale and cold next to mine. My arms were wound tightly around her petite torso and I couldn’t help but smile as I kissed her neck. I lean over, staring at her pretty face. Her bright navy eyes are like oceans to me. Her eyelashes are long, thick and dark. She might be…No, she is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I kissed her cherry red lips.
    *
    I woke up in a layer of cold sweat. The clock only read half past 5 o’clock. Instead of getting up I shook the dream out of my head and fall back asleep.
    3.
    Alex
    This wasn’t the first time I had dreamed about Natalie. I had of her over the course of the past six years. The romantic relationship between Natalie and I had never gone beyond my very vivid dreams at night.
    For the longest time I had wished that they were real. Even though I knew they could never come to life I had mananged to fall irrevocably in love with her.
    After getting to know Natalie I never expected anything other than a genuine student-teacher relationship with her. She was an extrordinarily mature girl for her age. From Ryan’s personality; I expected different. From the past few weeks of simply being within the presence of Ryan. From what I could discover from her personality,; she was just an average stereotyped college girl.She dressed sexily, had a firecracker like personality. If anything, she was the complete opposite from her sister.

I sat down in the booth ad glanced around the room there was a man with a rather large moustache picking his teeth constantly smacking his lips driving me insane. All the booths and the walls were painted the same red and white staring around the room made me feel dizzy and faint. Finally my waitress came up a young freckled faced red headed girl asked me if I wanted some coffee, by the time I hade agreed she had already started to poor the thick black coffee. The taste of the milky black brew tore my stomach in two I felt as tho I would hurl. She came back with a small menu and stared at me as if I already knew what I wanted. I skimmed through the menu and asked for some eggs over easy and some hash browns. I felt paranoid and scared as I walked up to the counter to grad a brochure and a pen. When I got back to my table the man with the mustache was picking and smacking again. I wanted to lung up and tear his teeth away from his face but I held it in. I started writing on the back of the brochure.”

    Dear Mr. & Mrs.Redworth
    I know I am not your favorite person But I want you to know I am going into rehab and I would like for you to go to the house and pick up Lisa I want her to have a better life than this please don’t put her out for my mistakes. I told her she should move back in with you and That she should get cleaned up too. So if you could please please please take your daughter back in until she gets her feet back I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you in advanced
    Roger
    “Yes, well I am afraid this is all the time we have for today so I will see you in a few days then?”
    “Sure, sure…. um- well I will talk to you next time doc.”

    Walking out of Dr.Perries office I realize that I hadn’t checked in on Lisa in quite a bit of time.
    I can feel her image pouring into my mind how sick it makes me, how long its been. I hate it. The long hallways make me feel like I cant reach the end no matter how long I walk, as if this place is all I know. As I round the corner I walk tword the doors and a man stops me.
    “Please sign out sir.”
    I sign my name and walk out the doors and walk to my car. The streets here are long and empty freckled and spotted with stores. I have to drive about four towns away to see her. I hope she’s home. I pull onto the freeway and drive south driving fur
    thank you i will fix the spelling errors and the present past tense errors

  27. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  28. I’ll keep it short, but after some drama/grief with Facebook and some severe cyberbullying/stalking…I decided to pull my Facebook off the internet, change my phone number and experiment with trying to use google voice as an easy way to mask my personal cell should anyone ever give me any personal grief ever again. The thing I thought I would like about Google Voice was that it generates a local number that people can call or text, and it goes straight to your cell. And for me and my sanity, I can easily change the Google number to another random local number if people start to abuse that number, and it doesn’t affect my personal cell or me having to change it with Sprint. I figured my family and VERY close friends could call me on my real cell, so they wouldn’t have to go through all the identification filtering when they call, and my trusted friends could text me on my personal cell line. I found out today how little I knew about Google Voice, and about what it has been doing with my ignorance.

    I’m on the Sprint Network, btw.

    For about a day things seemed fine, until I found out today that 9 people had tried to call me and my phone never rang even once. I got their voicemails after the fact, as well as missed call notifications through my gmail. Apparently, my family I gave out my original cell to said when they called it said something like “We’re sorry, but we could not complete your call” and it cut them off. They tried to call me on my Google Voice, but some told me it went though the identification process, and it just rang and rang. My family said they tried calling the Google number and all it did was ring and ring like it was going through, then forwarded to my voice mail. I will say that today I was home all day, and after I found all this out, I did a test both on my Dad’s cell and the house phone….and it confirmed everyone’s problems. I missed out on going out with some friends because I never got the call, my mother tried to call me about something important and got really angry with me that I never got her calls, saying “Why didn’t you answer your phone….it rang and rang and rang!!!” Basically I ended up with a lot of frustrated and angry people today because Google Voice has severely messed up and taken over my cell phone.

    I really want to keep Google Voice, but I also want people to have the ability to call me on my real cell who have it so they don’t have to go through the ID filtering process. I really don’t want to give up this service, because socially it gives me some security and peace of mind when I say, meet a girl and it doesn’t work out….or a guy friend I meet starts to give me poblems…both which have happened….and then I don’t have to switch my personal cell and go through the frustrating process of having to give it out to the 50+ people that need to have the real one.

    I will also say, that because I was home….and because I am with Sprint….I live in an area of town that gets poor cell reception from my provider, and they were nice to give me a Sprint Airrave device, which boosts your signal bars to full and hooks up via a GPS that sticks to the window and connects via your high speed internet to access the cell network. I did not leave the house today, and home is where I am most of the time….so this is a huge problem/concern for me. Is this device in any way keeping/hindering people from connecting to me when I am at home???

    I could really use help. I can’t receive calls from anyone….texts through Google Voice yes…but no phone calls and my phone is severely messed up. I would have called Sprint but they are closed until tomorrow morning, so there’s nothing about it I can do for now. How do I separate my two phone numbers and still have people use Google Voice for those I want to give it out to???

    Help severely needed. Thanks!

  29. Well, I now have another SAT study issue at hand and that is organization. For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying my best to study for the SAT efficiently, but I always fail at this because I’m just not organized! I have about five SAT Prep books (CB’s blue book, Boot Camp for Your Brain, Barrons How to Prepare for the New SAT 2007, Kaplan SAT Comprehensive Program 2007, and Acing the NEW SAT I Math), tons of practice tests (QaS’s, CB practice tests, and other tests from the books mentioned above), three – four SAT Prep websites (number2.com, smartdoodle.com, ePrep for the SAT, and SATMathPro.com – though I think I will only stick to all except smartdoodle), and tons of vocabulary resources to check out (should I memorize SparkNotes words, BCFYB words, Barron’s words, ePrep’s words…which ones??!) + a lot of practice questions. I have SO many materials to use, that I don’t know how to cover them all..and it’s driving me crazy! I don’t want to get a little bit of this and a little bit of that because in the end, I will end up covering only a little information. I only have 29 days left until I attempt my second and last chance to improve my SAT score..there is NO way I can move my date to December (I already did that when I was originally going to take it in October), because I still need to take the SAT IIs before January. Please help me – I really want to study efficiently in these coming weeks, and I know I can improve my score significantly if I dilligently keep up with that. Many people have improved their scores immensely by studying for only a month and I know I can do the same!

    For some of the books I have (such as Kaplans, Boot Camp, etc.), I’ve marked the only areas that might have important info and/or practice questions. I’ve skipped all the intro stuff that I already know from before, so, in some way, the work in some SAT Prep books is cut down for me. This month I want to focus more on practice and less on strategies and concepts. Practice makes perfect, so yes, this is what I want to do. The problem is though, I don’t want to ditch any prep books because they might have important information that could be useful and I don’t want to miss that.

    I don’t want to make this post super long, so I’m just going to list information on the time and work availability I have to study for the SAT throughout an entire week. Maybe this will aid someone who is willing to help me out.

    I’m a homeschooled student, so I don’t need to worry about going to school and having tons of homework when I come home. My schedule is something like this:

    Monday – Saturday: 6:00 am to 4:00 pm (sometimes 5:00 pm) – this is the amount of time I give myself each day to study for the SAT. Then from 4 or 5:00 pm to about 10:00 -10:30 pm I work on my schoolwork. This schedule isn’t followed on Sunday though – I try to study for the SAT for the entire day if possible. I will also probably ditch my schoolwork for the last two weeks of October and focus more on the SAT (I know it’s such a silly idea, but I guess I need the time.)

    I got a 1550 (460CR/510M/580W) on my first try on the SAT, and I’m aiming for a 2000 if not a 2100+ this time around. I know I could do this, since Math and Writing are the easiest to improve on the SAT, but I’ll try my best with Critical Reading. Like everyone says, “It’s easy to move from a 1500 to a 1900 or 2000, but it’s not so easy to move from a 2100 to a 2300”. So I’m sure I could reach my goal if I put forth some effort into it.

    I hope no one starts lecturing me by saying that I had so much time in the summer to study for this..yes, I know I did, but for some reason, it was hard for me to get back to studying. After prepping for about 4 months nonstop for my first SAT, I felt tired and my motivation level was down the drain. I don’t know why..I just couldn’t study. I studied on and off here and there during the summer though, but it wasn’t an amount that could significantly impact my score (although it did help in some cases such as vocab and Math). So please..I would appreciate if you guys could help me more than you could scold me. D:

    Well, that’s that. I guess I’ve said enough. I know I’ve been a terrible nuisance already, so out of the goodness in your heart, I hope that you could help me out of this dilemma.

    I’d really appreciate it.

  35. Iv known this guy since i was 17 years old, i am now 23 and hes about to be 24 soon.

    We first met through mutual friends and right off the bat he liked me. I didn’t get why he liked me so much so fast and it scared me. Our friends kept telling me just to give him a chance.I finally decided a few days later why not? so my best friends and her bf went out and asked us two to tag along, I wasn’t thinking at the time that this was a double date. We all went to dinner and a movie after and at the end of the night we said our goodbyes and i went back to my friends house to spend that night. I remember laying there in bed thinking “i cant do this” so i told her and she told me just to tell him how i felt. so i text him and let him know i thought he was a great guy i just didn’t wanna be in anything right now.

    About a year later i had seen him around and i started to realize that i made a BIG mistake on letting him go. I told my friend and she told me to tell him how i feel. So i did, i got up the courage and told him. But to my surprise i didn’t know he had a girlfriend. He told me he knows it wasn’t easy for me to say that and that any guy would be lucky to be with me, but hes a a relationship and he didn’t want to mess that up. So i respected that.

    About a year later i found out him and his girlfriend didn’t work out. we had started talking and i invited him over to our friends house one night, i remember being super excited to see him and see what would happen. That whole night we just kept flirting and everyone noticed something was there. About 2 days later i wanted to tell him i still felt and so i got up the courage once again and told him. He told me that he was sorry for giving me the wrong impression and he wasn’t looking for a relationship. I was kinda bummed but i got why he wasn’t looking for one.

    A year later we started talking again and he asked me if i wanted to hang out, so we made plans to met up and hang out. Well one thing led to another night and we ended up parking and making out. We talked a few times after that but i didn’t see him again until a year later.

    Another year later we start talking again and he asked me to come and hang out, My mind went straight to what had happen that one night and i said no. I told him i wanted to hang out without hooking up. He agreed and said ok sounds good. A few weeks later i asked him if he wanted to grab some drinks some where and hang out, he told me he couldn’t he already had plans, so i said ok next time. and that was the last time i heard from him.

    About 6 months ago we started talking again, he ended up moving to another area about 45 min away and before he left he goes and tells me hes gonna miss me and i need go up and visit.

    about 2 months ago he was back in the area visiting family and had text me asking if i wanted to hang out. i asked him hang out and do what? he said i was thinking we could grab something to eat and there is this music lounge we can go to and we can just hang. i told him wow for once it sounds like you don’t wanna hook up you actually wanna hang out. he said yeah well i feel like i haven’t been fair to you and i wanna make it up. i said good, im glad you see things like i do. Well i never ended up going because i had to work but about a week ago we were talking again and he wants me to go and visit him he said he wanted to go to the beach and dinner and stuff. he said he didn’t want to put a Label on it we can just see what happens. My question is should i go and see what happens or do you think hes just trying to get me there to maybe try something?? What is your opinion on the situation?

  36. Hi girls and guys. I’m in my second semester in Physics school at the moment, studying for a Calc II exam. First of all, a few words about uni in my country: You get evaluated with a grade from 1 to 10 (no A’s), and to pass, you need to get over 5 or more grades. My school lasts 4 years, and let’s face it, Physics isn’t an easy subject, so the average completion time is 6 years. When I got into university, I was very happy and said to myself that I’ll finish in 4 years and ignore the statistics.

    Seems like I was overestimating myself. Don’t get me wrong, I was an excellent student in high school (after the 7th grade, all my grades were over 19 out of 20) and managed to do so without excessive studying, just by paying attention to classes, going well in most tests, doing my homework and studying some days before finals. So anyway, first semester comes…I was attending EVERY single lesson and was overenthusiastic about it up to the middle of the semester, and even after that I missed only few lessons. But still, I just wouldn’t sit down to study and said ‘I’ll study the month before the exams’, thinking I’d do much like that. Of course, I passed only 3 out of 7 lessons, and believe me, it really hurt me. I recognized it was my wrong, and my parents knew that so they tried to calm me down, telling me it’s the first touch with university, you’ll eventually learn how to study etc.

    I got into the second semester with a harder motive. Suddenly, every Calculus II assignment I was given would be completed and given to the professor. First grades? 7.5/10, 8.5/10, 9.5/10. I just couldn’t believe I did so well! Math started looking easy, even though they were more advanced and I hadn’t passed Calc I. I attended all of the harder courses (like Atomic Physics) and managed to miss around 3 lessons only. Even though I was a bit lazy about that, I completed all the lab reports, and did great in the lab exams. I was certain the rest of the exams would go very well.

    And again, I flunked. I didn’t pass Atomic Physics, I didn’t pass Inorganic Chemistry, and tomorrow I’m sitting the Calc II exams, as I said. While my progress was great, I believe I started studying a little too late (a.k.a. crammed one day before the exams) so I don’t have hope on that. Anyway, that means I’ll have around 8 out of 13 lessons not-passed in the first year. What a great way to start!

    I want to be completely honest with myself. I didn’t put all the effort I should have, I procrastinated, I crammed, and I was too laid back. But I’m a person that likes science, I love my school, and this makes me sad and angry with myself. I had those feelings too back in the 1st semester, and I thought I’d improve in the second, but I went worse! There are exams about all first year’s classes again in September, and while I really want to try harder and reduce the un-passed lessons, I know I’ll find a way to procrastinate and not pass.

    Dear friends, I really want to do better. I’m not a lazy dude who came to uni for ‘the chicks’, I have dreams and I want to get a PhD, then work in fascinating scientific areas. But this is no good start for big dreams! I just can’t stay motivated! And I know this failure will get me in the summer.

    I need your advice! Am I right to worry too much? Thank you!
    @Mary: I wouldn’t expect such a subjective answer by a Top Contributor. First of all, I didn’t get bad grades, I just didn’t PASS the lessons. I can sit them again as many times as I want. Secondly, my problem is not the grades, I’m just asking how to cope with early failure. Believe me, my Atomic Physics professor told us that he wasn’t too ‘religious’ in studying the first years, yet the man is an Associate Professor, is a Corresponding Fellow in the CERN experiment, oh, and he has a PhD too.
    No need to mention his 80 publication in international scientific magazines with judges!
    @Shine: 5/10 is the minimum for all schools of all universities in my country. It’s part of the educational law, and I agree it’s just too low for a subject like Physics.

    But there’s something you can do: on your exam paper, you can write a minimum pass quota you wish to have; for example, if you chase a good mark, you can ask the professor to ‘fail’ you if you get under a certain grade.

  37. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  41. Can u give me your Opinion on My writing about a Serial Killer who targets those Attracted to Him?
    “Did you see the new girl Eason she’s definately easy on the eyes” Nicolas said.
    “No, I haven’t Eason replied not looking up from his magazine”.
    She came walking into the room. Wearing a pencil knee length skirt and a low cut shirt with her cleavage spilling over. It was a sight to see for the men in the office. Women whispered amongst themselves in disgust.
    She walked towards the two men who were sitting in front of her desk.
    “Hi I’m Elizabeth Gray but u you can call me Liz’ she told Nicolas.
    “You are absolutely beautiful Liz, no offense” he stated.
    “Oh no offense taken” she noticed Eason and how handsome he was .
    She found it rude how he didn’t take his eyes off the magazine. He was the only man in the room who seemed not interested.
    ‘And u are?” she asked boldly with a grin.
    Eason slowly looked up starting from toe until he met her face.
    “Slut” he thought to himself.
    “Hello I’m Eason” he extended his hand although he didn’t want to.
    “Firm grip you have there Eason, I Love Strong men she joked”
    He was not moved and felt the need to get away but forced a laugh.
    Looking at her neck his imagination went wild.
    Placing his hands around her neck is what he craved.
    Squeezing the life out of her. He began to feel as if he’d break out in a sweat.
    “Would you excuse me ? I have to go to the men’s room” he smiled.
    “It was really nice to meet you” he got up.
    “What was that about ?” she turned and asked Nicolas. with confusion written across her face
    “He is very shy” but are you married if you don’t mind me asking.
    “No, but is he?” she asked.
    Nicolas realised she was attracted to his friend and not him. A huge blow to his ego.
    “Why don’t you ask him” Nicolas replied walking away he saw it was no use talking to her if she wasn’t interested in sleeping with him. Anyone with sense knew what type of guy he was. She was drawn to Eason he seemed like such the perfect gentleman. She was tired of dating jerks.

    Eason calmed himself down.Tossing some water on his face. The monster within him wanted to place his fantasy of killing Elizabeth Gray into action. In due time he told himself.
    About:

    Eason was molested by his mother which is why he hate women who comes on to him. He meets and falls in love with a Cop. The hero in the story who actually falls for the villain. She is assigned to solve the case of missing women in their area. Eason has never felt love before so he is obsessed and want to change his evil ways for the Cop…He only fell for her because she avoided him for so long (she has her own issues with men which is why she’d rather not date but she gives him a chance)

    The problem is the Villain is EXTREMELY handsome and u can’t help but notice him (he doesn’t want to be noticed)
    Ted Bundy killed Random Women…This guy only strikes those who actually like him and he falls in love and wants to change
    He is digusted with his mother who sexually abused him as a child so any form of affection from women in a “GOOD” way throws him off He hates dirty Easy women

  42. Hi girls and guys. I’m in my second semester in Physics school at the moment, studying for a Calc II exam. First of all, a few words about uni in my country: You get evaluated with a grade from 1 to 10 (no A’s), and to pass, you need to get over 5 or more grades. My school lasts 4 years, and let’s face it, Physics isn’t an easy subject, so the average completion time is 6 years. When I got into university, I was very happy and said to myself that I’ll finish in 4 years and ignore the statistics.

    Seems like I was overestimating myself. Don’t get me wrong, I was an excellent student in high school (after the 7th grade, all my grades were over 19 out of 20) and managed to do so without excessive studying, just by paying attention to classes, going well in most tests, doing my homework and studying some days before finals. So anyway, first semester comes…I was attending EVERY single lesson and was overenthusiastic about it up to the middle of the semester, and even after that I missed only few lessons. But still, I just wouldn’t sit down to study and said ‘I’ll study the month before the exams’, thinking I’d do much like that. Of course, I passed only 3 out of 7 lessons, and believe me, it really hurt me. I recognized it was my wrong, and my parents knew that so they tried to calm me down, telling me it’s the first touch with university, you’ll eventually learn how to study etc.

    I got into the second semester with a harder motive. Suddenly, every Calculus II assignment I was given would be completed and given to the professor. First grades? 7.5/10, 8.5/10, 9.5/10. I just couldn’t believe I did so well! Math started looking easy, even though they were more advanced and I hadn’t passed Calc I. I attended all of the harder courses (like Atomic Physics) and managed to miss around 3 lessons only. Even though I was a bit lazy about that, I completed all the lab reports, and did great in the lab exams. I was certain the rest of the exams would go very well.

    And again, I flunked. I didn’t pass Atomic Physics, I didn’t pass Inorganic Chemistry, and tomorrow I’m sitting the Calc II exams, as I said. While my progress was great, I believe I started studying a little too late (a.k.a. crammed one day before the exams) so I don’t have hope on that. Anyway, that means I’ll have around 8 out of 13 lessons not-passed in the first year. What a great way to start!

  44. I don’t know how we got here and I don’t want to think this would be the coarse of our life. I love you and I don’t want to see you in this situation and these sercimstance. I want you to move away from here Im sorry all I left was this letter and Im sorry Iv boughten you to this level of low. All I want is for you to please move back with your parents and try to get yourself cleaned up Im going into rehab and I am going to send you a letter as often as I can. I love you and Im missing you.. Goodbye Lisa
    Love Roger
    p.s. I will send you some cash to help you along as often as I can.

    “She places the letter on the coffee table and sinks to the floor sobbing looking around the room to find some comfort, unable to, afraid to. I turned away walking tword my car hoping to feel like I did the right thing by the time I reached it. As I gripped the handle I felt the urge to run back into the house and tell her how much she means to me but the thought of the bottle littered living room and the piss stained carpet made me sick. I felt the need to burn the place down when I thought about it, I really hated that place. I got in my car and drove away, although I had no clue where I was heading or what I was going to do I just knew I needed to get away. I drove for a few days and managed to find a small town, which was a little odd given the fact that I lived in somewhat of a south of nowhere area I normally have trouble finding a stor just to get milk. Living in Nevada isnt as glamorous as most would have you think, its full of hot air, drugs, dirt, and sex, not much to my taste. Yet the drugs did take hold and the dirt became a part of me. Its not something I want to think about often.”
    “Its alright you don’t need to talk about anything you don’t want to this is your time to speak.”
    D.r. Perrie tries so hard to be understanding but I guess he is just a little new at the shrink game I understand him wanting to do well. He wears the same outfit every time I come for my session, perfectly polished black dress shoes, black cackie pants, a casual white button up and a red striped tie. But I will admit the lack of change dose make me a little more comfortable in a meager sort of way.
    “So tell me why did you stop in this town?”
    “I needed to sleep I hadn’t slept for a couple of days and I needed to calm down I could feel my body detoxing and it burned me yet was strangely cold. Anyway I stopped at a small diner to get something to eat, when I walked in a young boy asked me if I was alright and said I looked sickly pail and I was sweating uncontrollably, I told him I was fine yet he helped me to my seat anyway I humored him and thanked him. I sat down in the booth ad glanced around the room there was a man with a rather large moustache picking his teeth constantly smacking his lips driving me insane. All the booths and the walls were painted the same red and white staring around the room made me feel dizzy and faint. Finally my waitress came up a young freckled faced red headed girl asked me if I wanted some coffee, by the time I hade agreed she had already started to poor the thick black coffee. The taste of the milky black brew tore my stomach in two I felt as tho I would hurl. She came back with a small menu and stared at me as if I already knew what I wanted. I skimmed through the menu and asked for some eggs over easy and some hash browns. I felt paranoid and scared as I walked up to the counter to grad a brochure and a pen. When I got back to my table the man with the mustache was picking and smacking again. I wanted to lung up and tear his teeth away from his face but I held it in. I started writing on the back of the brochure.”

    Dear Mr. & Mrs.Redworth
    I know I am not your favorite person But I want you to know I am going into rehab and I would like for you to go to the house and pick up Lisa I want her to have a better life than this please don’t put her out for my mistakes. I told her she should move back in with you and That she should get cleaned up too. So if you could please please please take your daughter back in until she gets her feet back I would really appreciate it.
    Thank you in advanced
    Roger
    “Yes, well I am afraid this is all the time we have for today so I will see you in a few days then?”
    “Sure, sure…. um- well I will talk to you next time doc.”

    Walking out of Dr.Perries office I realize that I hadn’t checked in on Lisa in quite a bit of time.
    I can feel her image pouring into my mind how sick it makes me, how long its been. I hate it. The long hallways make me feel like I cant reach the end no matter how long I walk, as if this place is all I know. As I round the corner I walk tword the doors and a man stops me.
    “Please sign out sir.”
    I sign my name and walk out the doors and walk to my car. The streets here are long and empty freckled and spotted with stores. I have to drive about four towns away to see her. I hope she’s home. I pull onto the freeway and drive south driving fur
    thank you i will fix the spelling errors and the present past tense errors

    But there’s something you can do: on your exam paper, you can write a minimum pass quota you wish to have; for example, if you chase a good mark, you can ask the professor to ‘fail’ you if you get under a certain grade.

  46. Iv known this guy since i was 17 years old, i am now 23 and hes about to be 24 soon.

    We first met through mutual friends and right off the bat he liked me. I didn’t get why he liked me so much so fast and it scared me. Our friends kept telling me just to give him a chance.I finally decided a few days later why not? so my best friends and her bf went out and asked us two to tag along, I wasn’t thinking at the time that this was a double date. We all went to dinner and a movie after and at the end of the night we said our goodbyes and i went back to my friends house to spend that night. I remember laying there in bed thinking “i cant do this” so i told her and she told me just to tell him how i felt. so i text him and let him know i thought he was a great guy i just didn’t wanna be in anything right now.

    About a year later i had seen him around and i started to realize that i made a BIG mistake on letting him go. I told my friend and she told me to tell him how i feel. So i did, i got up the courage and told him. But to my surprise i didn’t know he had a girlfriend. He told me he knows it wasn’t easy for me to say that and that any guy would be lucky to be with me, but hes a a relationship and he didn’t want to mess that up. So i respected that.

    About a year later i found out him and his girlfriend didn’t work out. we had started talking and i invited him over to our friends house one night, i remember being super excited to see him and see what would happen. That whole night we just kept flirting and everyone noticed something was there. About 2 days later i wanted to tell him i still felt and so i got up the courage once again and told him. He told me that he was sorry for giving me the wrong impression and he wasn’t looking for a relationship. I was kinda bummed but i got why he wasn’t looking for one.

    A year later we started talking again and he asked me if i wanted to hang out, so we made plans to met up and hang out. Well one thing led to another night and we ended up parking and making out. We talked a few times after that but i didn’t see him again until a year later.

    Another year later we start talking again and he asked me to come and hang out, My mind went straight to what had happen that one night and i said no. I told him i wanted to hang out without hooking up. He agreed and said ok sounds good. A few weeks later i asked him if he wanted to grab some drinks some where and hang out, he told me he couldn’t he already had plans, so i said ok next time. and that was the last time i heard from him.

    About 6 months ago we started talking again, he ended up moving to another area about 45 min away and before he left he goes and tells me hes gonna miss me and i need go up and visit.

    about 2 months ago he was back in the area visiting family and had text me asking if i wanted to hang out. i asked him hang out and do what? he said i was thinking we could grab something to eat and there is this music lounge we can go to and we can just hang. i told him wow for once it sounds like you don’t wanna hook up you actually wanna hang out. he said yeah well i feel like i haven’t been fair to you and i wanna make it up. i said good, im glad you see things like i do. Well i never ended up going because i had to work but about a week ago we were talking again and he wants me to go and visit him he said he wanted to go to the beach and dinner and stuff. he said he didn’t want to put a Label on it we can just see what happens. My question is should i go and see what happens or do you think hes just trying to get me there to maybe try something?? What is your opinion on the situation?

  47. Can u give me your Opinion on My writing about a Serial Killer who targets those Attracted to Him?
    “Did you see the new girl Eason she’s definately easy on the eyes” Nicolas said.
    “No, I haven’t Eason replied not looking up from his magazine”.
    She came walking into the room. Wearing a pencil knee length skirt and a low cut shirt with her cleavage spilling over. It was a sight to see for the men in the office. Women whispered amongst themselves in disgust.
    She walked towards the two men who were sitting in front of her desk.
    “Hi I’m Elizabeth Gray but u you can call me Liz’ she told Nicolas.
    “You are absolutely beautiful Liz, no offense” he stated.
    “Oh no offense taken” she noticed Eason and how handsome he was .
    She found it rude how he didn’t take his eyes off the magazine. He was the only man in the room who seemed not interested.
    ‘And u are?” she asked boldly with a grin.
    Eason slowly looked up starting from toe until he met her face.
    “Slut” he thought to himself.
    “Hello I’m Eason” he extended his hand although he didn’t want to.
    “Firm grip you have there Eason, I Love Strong men she joked”
    He was not moved and felt the need to get away but forced a laugh.
    Looking at her neck his imagination went wild.
    Placing his hands around her neck is what he craved.
    Squeezing the life out of her. He began to feel as if he’d break out in a sweat.
    “Would you excuse me ? I have to go to the men’s room” he smiled.
    “It was really nice to meet you” he got up.
    “What was that about ?” she turned and asked Nicolas. with confusion written across her face
    “He is very shy” but are you married if you don’t mind me asking.
    “No, but is he?” she asked.
    Nicolas realised she was attracted to his friend and not him. A huge blow to his ego.
    “Why don’t you ask him” Nicolas replied walking away he saw it was no use talking to her if she wasn’t interested in sleeping with him. Anyone with sense knew what type of guy he was. She was drawn to Eason he seemed like such the perfect gentleman. She was tired of dating jerks.

    Eason calmed himself down.Tossing some water on his face. The monster within him wanted to place his fantasy of killing Elizabeth Gray into action. In due time he told himself.
    About:

    Eason was molested by his mother which is why he hate women who comes on to him. He meets and falls in love with a Cop. The hero in the story who actually falls for the villain. She is assigned to solve the case of missing women in their area. Eason has never felt love before so he is obsessed and want to change his evil ways for the Cop…He only fell for her because she avoided him for so long (she has her own issues with men which is why she’d rather not date but she gives him a chance)

    The problem is the Villain is EXTREMELY handsome and u can’t help but notice him (he doesn’t want to be noticed)
    Ted Bundy killed Random Women…This guy only strikes those who actually like him and he falls in love and wants to change
    He is digusted with his mother who sexually abused him as a child so any form of affection from women in a “GOOD” way throws him off He hates dirty Easy women

  48. Well, I now have another SAT study issue at hand and that is organization. For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying my best to study for the SAT efficiently, but I always fail at this because I’m just not organized! I have about five SAT Prep books (CB’s blue book, Boot Camp for Your Brain, Barrons How to Prepare for the New SAT 2007, Kaplan SAT Comprehensive Program 2007, and Acing the NEW SAT I Math), tons of practice tests (QaS’s, CB practice tests, and other tests from the books mentioned above), three – four SAT Prep websites (number2.com, smartdoodle.com, ePrep for the SAT, and SATMathPro.com – though I think I will only stick to all except smartdoodle), and tons of vocabulary resources to check out (should I memorize SparkNotes words, BCFYB words, Barron’s words, ePrep’s words…which ones??!) + a lot of practice questions. I have SO many materials to use, that I don’t know how to cover them all..and it’s driving me crazy! I don’t want to get a little bit of this and a little bit of that because in the end, I will end up covering only a little information. I only have 29 days left until I attempt my second and last chance to improve my SAT score..there is NO way I can move my date to December (I already did that when I was originally going to take it in October), because I still need to take the SAT IIs before January. Please help me – I really want to study efficiently in these coming weeks, and I know I can improve my score significantly if I dilligently keep up with that. Many people have improved their scores immensely by studying for only a month and I know I can do the same!

    For some of the books I have (such as Kaplans, Boot Camp, etc.), I’ve marked the only areas that might have important info and/or practice questions. I’ve skipped all the intro stuff that I already know from before, so, in some way, the work in some SAT Prep books is cut down for me. This month I want to focus more on practice and less on strategies and concepts. Practice makes perfect, so yes, this is what I want to do. The problem is though, I don’t want to ditch any prep books because they might have important information that could be useful and I don’t want to miss that.

    I don’t want to make this post super long, so I’m just going to list information on the time and work availability I have to study for the SAT throughout an entire week. Maybe this will aid someone who is willing to help me out.

    I’m a homeschooled student, so I don’t need to worry about going to school and having tons of homework when I come home. My schedule is something like this:

    Monday – Saturday: 6:00 am to 4:00 pm (sometimes 5:00 pm) – this is the amount of time I give myself each day to study for the SAT. Then from 4 or 5:00 pm to about 10:00 -10:30 pm I work on my schoolwork. This schedule isn’t followed on Sunday though – I try to study for the SAT for the entire day if possible. I will also probably ditch my schoolwork for the last two weeks of October and focus more on the SAT (I know it’s such a silly idea, but I guess I need the time.)

    I got a 1550 (460CR/510M/580W) on my first try on the SAT, and I’m aiming for a 2000 if not a 2100+ this time around. I know I could do this, since Math and Writing are the easiest to improve on the SAT, but I’ll try my best with Critical Reading. Like everyone says, “It’s easy to move from a 1500 to a 1900 or 2000, but it’s not so easy to move from a 2100 to a 2300”. So I’m sure I could reach my goal if I put forth some effort into it.

    I hope no one starts lecturing me by saying that I had so much time in the summer to study for this..yes, I know I did, but for some reason, it was hard for me to get back to studying. After prepping for about 4 months nonstop for my first SAT, I felt tired and my motivation level was down the drain. I don’t know why..I just couldn’t study. I studied on and off here and there during the summer though, but it wasn’t an amount that could significantly impact my score (although it did help in some cases such as vocab and Math). So please..I would appreciate if you guys could help me more than you could scold me. D:

    Well, that’s that. I guess I’ve said enough. I know I’ve been a terrible nuisance already, so out of the goodness in your heart, I hope that you could help me out of this dilemma.

    I’d really appreciate it.

  49. I’ll keep it short, but after some drama/grief with Facebook and some severe cyberbullying/stalking…I decided to pull my Facebook off the internet, change my phone number and experiment with trying to use google voice as an easy way to mask my personal cell should anyone ever give me any personal grief ever again. The thing I thought I would like about Google Voice was that it generates a local number that people can call or text, and it goes straight to your cell. And for me and my sanity, I can easily change the Google number to another random local number if people start to abuse that number, and it doesn’t affect my personal cell or me having to change it with Sprint. I figured my family and VERY close friends could call me on my real cell, so they wouldn’t have to go through all the identification filtering when they call, and my trusted friends could text me on my personal cell line. I found out today how little I knew about Google Voice, and about what it has been doing with my ignorance.

    I’m on the Sprint Network, btw.

    For about a day things seemed fine, until I found out today that 9 people had tried to call me and my phone never rang even once. I got their voicemails after the fact, as well as missed call notifications through my gmail. Apparently, my family I gave out my original cell to said when they called it said something like “We’re sorry, but we could not complete your call” and it cut them off. They tried to call me on my Google Voice, but some told me it went though the identification process, and it just rang and rang. My family said they tried calling the Google number and all it did was ring and ring like it was going through, then forwarded to my voice mail. I will say that today I was home all day, and after I found all this out, I did a test both on my Dad’s cell and the house phone….and it confirmed everyone’s problems. I missed out on going out with some friends because I never got the call, my mother tried to call me about something important and got really angry with me that I never got her calls, saying “Why didn’t you answer your phone….it rang and rang and rang!!!” Basically I ended up with a lot of frustrated and angry people today because Google Voice has severely messed up and taken over my cell phone.

    I really want to keep Google Voice, but I also want people to have the ability to call me on my real cell who have it so they don’t have to go through the ID filtering process. I really don’t want to give up this service, because socially it gives me some security and peace of mind when I say, meet a girl and it doesn’t work out….or a guy friend I meet starts to give me poblems…both which have happened….and then I don’t have to switch my personal cell and go through the frustrating process of having to give it out to the 50+ people that need to have the real one.

    I will also say, that because I was home….and because I am with Sprint….I live in an area of town that gets poor cell reception from my provider, and they were nice to give me a Sprint Airrave device, which boosts your signal bars to full and hooks up via a GPS that sticks to the window and connects via your high speed internet to access the cell network. I did not leave the house today, and home is where I am most of the time….so this is a huge problem/concern for me. Is this device in any way keeping/hindering people from connecting to me when I am at home???

    I could really use help. I can’t receive calls from anyone….texts through Google Voice yes…but no phone calls and my phone is severely messed up. I would have called Sprint but they are closed until tomorrow morning, so there’s nothing about it I can do for now. How do I separate my two phone numbers and still have people use Google Voice for those I want to give it out to???

    Help severely needed. Thanks!

  50. Hello Sexy,
    Just thought I’d write you an email instead of a text msg. I know that you are working two very long days this weekend & hope that it has been happy & easy. I miss you much.
    Yesterday & today I painted mine & Nessa’s room. The only colors the landlord allows is some form of off-white, so for the sake of Nessa, I painted it an off-white beige-pink. When the sunlight hits it it actually looks lavender, and I think she will like it. It only took about 6 hours total to complete. Soon I also plan to clean the carpet in the room that will be yours. If you’d like the room repainted, let me know.
    I cleaned out yet more junk, having a couple more trashbags to go out. Makes the house feel much bigger! There is some more organization left for me to do & I hope to have it done today. Have to goto Target and get some storage products here in a little while. I have to especially get my desk area in order before I start taking classes. I am really looking forward to going back to college, and have also completed some more paperwork over the past couple days for U of Maryland.
    I will have to rewire the cable internet for downstairs, as currently I have it rigged by drawing the cord through the upstairs window and down to the lower level, through the living room window.
    I have temporarily sent Newbie back to her old home so that I can have my landlord come in to do the necessary repairs to the oven, dishwasher, upstairs faucet, & heater. Funny to note that I slept better without a cat crawling over me, I understand now the relief you felt when not having to get up for the cats. But, she will be coming back in the next couple weeks.
    Looking foward to the roommate plan. I think it will help us both better our life circumstances. I know it might take a couple more months before anything happens, but I am trying to get everything ready as soon as possible. Boy, is this a bright spot in my life. I really look forward to it.
    Been thinking about the refrigerator situation. I think we can survive with the mini fridge + the freezer, I will be taking care of the cooking anyway and I am used to doing everything with frozen food. But as time goes on we will learn whether or not this will be possible. I don’t see that as a big worry.
    Well anyway, hope you and doing well, and looking forward to hearing from you (but get some rest first!) I know you have worked really hard lately. I admire your work ethic. You are a good man. I love you so much!
    Yours, Pumpkin

  52. I want to have a vehicle paid for (yes a 6000lb gvw) and perks paid to me instead of the biz proceeds because they will be spent on operating costs like trips to trade shows etc. I have a PC repair biz.

  53. There was a girl named Lily Springs who went on a journey far from her home. Lily traveled far across the world before she found a place that she could call home. She found her life long partner and started her own beauty salon business. She lived in an urban area in Illinois and ended up living there for about fifteen years – alone. While in this urban area Lily made many friends through her business and earned a lot of money. She owned a store where everyone in the city came to do beautify themselves. She helped set up all holiday events, social events and was considered to be one of the cities hugest contributors.
    Lily was happy about everything in her life, except one thing – she missed her home. She missed her parents. She missed her sister and home-town friends. So one breezy evening, Lily decided to go visit home. She packed a bunch of things for her journey. She thought about taking Dr. Edward Springs her husband, but her family didn’t know she got married. So she left him home so someone could pay the bills and mortgage. Ever since Lily married Edward she always had a bad feeling about him, he always gave her this cold shoulder. That made her shivers inside. Lily thought that he was going to end up killing her. So she took almost everything she could with her and set out on her journey.
    As 3 months past, since Lily had left and Edward began to get worried. He put up lost posters for anyone who had seen her. Lily didn’t know which way she had came from. She remembered one thing and that was the one little house near the mountains. While walking around the mountain, she headed towards the valley. She spotted a cottage and she opened the door and it made a screech. *Poof* Shocked, the desperate woman saw a dead spirit standing in front of her, but she thought it was a dream. She hadn’t eaten in a few days and was getting cranky. She took her hand and slapped it across the face of the dead spirit, but her hand went right through. Lily stood in front of the spirit speechless. When suddenly the spirit began talking to her, the spirit screamed, “LILY YOU ARE IN GRAVE DANGER, MANY ARE LOOKING FOR YOU, and READY TO KILL YOU!!” Terrified, Lily didn’t know what she could do; she knew going on this journey would be a bad idea but still willing to continue on. The spirit told her, “Run Lily, run while you can before they take you or your loved ones away, choose one, Lily.” Lily thought that this would’ve been an easy choose but it wasn’t. She went on for a few more weeks and she still hadn’t come up with a decision. Now Lily was just walking around, looking like a mess. Lily lost a lot of her luggage through the rain and constant traveling. Lily ended up in the heart of Texas, traveling from Chicago. Upon entering the state of Texas the undecided woman, she was stopped by a group of farmers.
    Lily and the farmers had both spoken to a dead spirit, and still haven’t made their decision. Lily was getting anxious, and worried not wanting to choose between herself and her family. Lily and the farmers stayed together for a week to help each other make a final decision. But by the end of the week they weren’t even close to making a proper decision. Both Lily and the farmers went their separate ways
    Having no clue what was going to happen, Lily was petrified. Six months passed by and still Lily hadn’t even reached close to her families house. Still on her way to her family’s house, She got arrested, for shop lifting, but this wasn’t even the beginning, her worst nightmares were about to come true. Lily was told by the officer she had to stay in jail for three weeks. Getting very impatient, frustrated with her life and unable to find her family she grew anxious. Lily decided to sneak out of jail and make a run for it. She easily made it out of jail and started towards freedom again. The same night walking down the sidewalk, a dark truck pulled up beside her. Lily continued walking, ignoring every sound that came from that direction. One of the men from the back of the truck jumped out and grabbed Lily; he tied a bandana around her eyes. Then the man put her in the back of the truck and drove off. While fighting to get loose, Lily felt something held towards her back. At around 2:00am the car stopped, the men told Lily to wait in the truck and if she runs they will shoot her. When the men left, Lily somehow managed to open the door to the truck and run in any direction. Eventually the bandana slipped off and she could see. Lily used her teeth to untie the knots, and she made a run for it. Once again somehow she was able to run away.
    Lily was thankful for being able to get free, she knew someone was watching over her and helping her through this mess. Lily had a guardian angel watching over her. Lily’s life was getting worse every day she went searching for her family. But Lily couldn’t see the next one coming at all. The men that put Lily in the back of the truck, found Lily again. Instead of putting her in t
