6:51 pm - The Reason Behind It....

lutinquill
Ever suddenly look up and find yourself surrounded by friends who, you realize belatedly, aren't that fabulous? Who, when you look twice, really aren't there when you need them, and don't help you when you are down, or going insane, but let you reel out of control with the lovely parting gesture "She's being such an emo b****."
That's why I got this journal. I was sick of letting that happen to me, sick of having my every human instinct called into question. Yes, we get sad. Yes, we get pissed off over something that isn't that serious. Yes, we are allowed, upon occasion, to be somewhat stupid. Aren't we? What good is a friend who only mocks you for being yourself? What good is a friend who tells you to stop being yourself??
That's not a friend.
I joined this community because I looked at it and went "Oh, wow- this is perfect" it just looks so cool. I mean- I read some of these entries and remember thinking the exact same thing at some point and time.
I'm a writer, but I've never finished a story. I just move on to something else- I'm constantly hopping from idea to idea. I think it must be the ADD, which the highest dose of medication has never helped, by the way. Doctors can be quacks sometimes.....
But I digress...It's cool to find a community where people aren't so judgemental at first glance.

current mood: a bit relieved

2:20 pm - look at me, i'm a n00b! ;)

Hey! My name's Sarah and I just joined, so I thought I'd post something to introduce myself. I'm 18-years old, hail from Ontario, Canada and looooooove to create! Mostly I like to write, journals, poetry, short stories...you name it! But I'm also into photography, collaging and a little bit of painting. So, on with my creation... it's not my favourite by any means but right now, it suits my mood...so here it goes.

Faces.
I sat there on the floor of my room, canvas on my lap, paintbrush in my hand. I
slapped the paint down again and again. Slap, slap, slap. I watched the paint form, and it
formed faces.
All the time I was thinking of you, about what you'd done. The faces kept coming,
filling up my canvas. I saw the pain in their eyes and I knew what they were hiding.
Soon, somehow, I began to let you slip away. And you became only a speck on the
horizon. The faces began to change, they were letting go too. Hope filled their eyes
and I remembered what it is to be strong.
I looked at all the faces around me, filling up my room. I looked at all the faces I
had painted and I smiled because none of them looked like you.

current mood: lonely

Any Fall Out Boy fans?

Well you can now buy this book of short stories written by a very good friend of the band

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

 




Click the Banner or go to askheychris.com for more details about the book, and who Christopher Gutierrez(more commonly known as "HeyChris") is and why he's important, if you don't already know.

If you’d like to do me a huge favor (You really have NO clue how much this would help me out) You can post this same banner in your journal or on your myspace profile. If you do that, make sure the journal is a public entry, and send me the link to it. I need to know where it is.

3:25 pm - In a hurry, late for work and...
the_peeb Looking, I could stare, but no... bright lights are coming now and the wind picks up; walking still, someone screams (someone), eyes closed now, teeth on teeth, hard, all pressing, but walking still walking. I could never stare, it's too much, too real, surreal, with twisted limbs morphing eyes where there never were... bones under my skin could crack... terrible. They come past, sirens on, lights, (someone screams, back there); it's in good hands now, someone's hands. Up ahead there's the store (I can't see it yet) and the whole day -- I could be walking home tonight and die, anything could happen, I could scream; I've never heard me scream, never screamed, maybe I'd die quietly... I'd die quietly yes, grip the sleeve of whoever crouches next to me, eyes intense staring (at her eyes, no his, a man rushes to the front), and I wouldn't speak. Who knows... I make everything a victory (no traffic now, the lanes are blocked, next to me the street is quiet) and I can see the store now, I know I'll arrive, maybe I'll tell everyone what I saw, maybe I'll cry (because I'm the victim, the witness)... the parking lot is empty and I didn't stop once, am not late, am on time; the front door is locked still but the back door is open.

current mood: First post!

9:11 pm - Good evening everyone
the_peeb I just joined, I hope that's ok...
I mostly write short snippets of somethings, but am working on a longer piece and this looks like a very supportive community. I look forwards to seeing the work and hearing the comments of the people here.
I have nothing for you right now, but I will soon.

chrizzy_crazy I can hear the echo's down the hallway of unfamiliar voices. Their is a strong scent of a mans cologne mixed with that of stale carpet. Its comfortable but not pleasant. There aren't many people around and the few that are dont seem to acknoledge anyone else is in the same area.

I'm new to this community, although not new to writing. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in reading over a few things for me, since I am nervous about showing my friends the things I write. I write a lot of original stories centered around fairy tales, most with homosexual characters as the center figures.

Also, does anyone know of anyone writing communities similar to this one on Greatestjournal.com?

hello,

this is my first post to this community. i ordered a canon powershot s1 and it came in today's mail. it's my first time experimenting with digital photography. today was rather windy and cloudy, so it was difficult at times to hold the camera steady. i shot mostly macro-type images, but without a macro lens. i do have a macro, but i was too lazy to put it on. i was out for about 20 minutes and i just took some random photographs. here are three of them. i would appreciate some constructive criticism, especially from people who have used the same camera.

let me know what you think...

p.s.: i am normally much  more original, but this was really just a camera-testing session. thanks!

chrizzy_crazy These secrets, fuel my fire
these crazy nights, feed my emotions
It could be bliss, but who's to say
Its desire, I'm feeding from

The night has come and the lights are off
Laying in bed but I'm SO FAR GONE
Emotional Ecstacy taking over me
Reason's been left at the door
Goodnight beautiful ommision

These moments, send me into orbit
these memories, condone my logic
It could be wrong, but who's to say
Its intamacy, I'm phening for

Take me in, even though you shouldnt
Feed my passion with your own idalatry

7:55 pm - Not Coming Home

job_12_3

Not Coming Home

I never thought to say goodbye.
I think I’ve missed my chance
To hug you just that one last time,
To let you know just what you meant.
And now when it’s already too late
It’s these moments when I wish
I could’ve just had a bit more time.

This shouldn’t have to be goodbye for us,
But in the end I know that it must.
‘Cause in the end, the tearful end,
You won’t be coming home.

My head is reeling
With all these regrets of yesterday
Of all those times I let life get in the way.
Now I can’t go back,
And I’ve let you fall down to your knees,
Though it were your finger on the trigger,
Some blame still rests with me.

This shouldn’t have to be goodbye for us,
But in the end I know that it must.
‘Cause in the end, the tearful end,
You won’t be coming home.

Maybe if I hadn’t let us fall away,
There would be no reason
For me to cry today.
And I don’t want to say goodbye,
But it’s all there’s left to say,
Rest in peace, my dear friend
We may yet meet again someday.

This shouldn’t have to be goodbye for us,
But in the end I know that it must.
‘Cause in the end, the tearful end,
You won’t be coming home.


With all my love,
Job
