Mainly waiting for school to start back up again. I'm always asked when I'll be graduating college and it weighs me down a lot when I can't give a clear answer. With there being all of these different course requirements that I can't fulfill right away due to some of them being unavailable until like next summer as well as various financial situations, I've been pretty stressed.

Aside from this, many people whom I would consider friends just don't seem to want anything to do with me it seems. It just always comes down to me always sending messages or texts to see how they're doing or if they want to hang out and such, but never the other way around. I try to interact with them the best I can but don't get the same. I've tried planning specific events like going bowling, going to the movies, conventions, or even something as simple as "hey, it's been awhile let's chat"(more or less) or something. Regardless of what plans I try to make or what conversations I try to start, I get rather simple, short, or ambiguous responses that gives the impression that they aren't all too interested. When mutual friends or acquaintences make the same plans and do the exact same things that I do though, suddenly there's a wildfire of conversations, interactions, etc with them.

The last thing is just that overwhelming feeling of loneliness. With the aforementioned friend situation above, and the fact that it's tough trying to find love (or having it find you). Things get rather lonesome pretty quickly. Have a lot that's eating at me right now haha.


It sucks, but friends, even good ones will drift apart sometimes. Life and circumstance has a way of pulling people into two very different directions. It just gets hard to relate with people sometimes. Be open to these people, but don't let it hurt your feelings if they don't respond. If it hurts too much, pull away for a little while and try to meet some new people any way you can.

Thanks. I've definitely tried just that and it led me here. Hope to meet more people that I can interact with. Not only that but when classes start up again I'm hoping that I can meet and interact with more people

You will definitely get to meet a lot of new people once classes start up again. I know it doesn't really help, but it eventually gets better. Now if only I could find a gym buddy in my area who doesn't mind going at the same time to the same gym. ;_;

I wish I could help you there. I recently started working out pretty intensely and having someone else to do that with would be pretty fun.

I really like lifting weights, and it's so hard to find another woman who wants to do that, which makes it even more difficult. I wouldn't mind going with a man, but I don't want to deal with a guy who has a bad attitude. Not that the women who are "afraid to bulk up" have a good attitude, mind you.

I always have worked out alone it's not really a problem unless you a spot and no one is there at the same time as you to help. I don't mind asking people I don't know to spot me for my last set on something.

Work been killing my knees. Keep telling my bosses to put me on something else that helps my knees but they won't. Really not looking forward to 12 hour shifts with my bad knee. But it's only 3-4 a week so I really can't compain.

I am also starting to feel like an bank and taxi to my friend whom I work with. She lives farther from work then me but I got to go get her. It's tiring me out with everything.

Plus my weight is getting to me. I feel absoultely ugly and fat as hell. I want to start working out and bettering myself but got no one to support me. Everyone tells me I look fine the way I look but I don't. Sucks alot actually.

My grandmother's age seems to be getting to her. I was away for college and wasn't home too much for three years after that. I never noticed. Only on this recent trip to Japan did I realize how bad it is getting. She would say the most irrational and abrasive things, often at inappropriate times and no longer seems as in control of herself while stressed as she used to be.

The scary questions were the repetitive ones she kept repeating. What city are we in? What's the conversion rate of dollar to yen? What did we eat? Is that person *insert name*? What time is it? These were all questions that had been answered dozens of times, that were easy to answer after 5 seconds of looking around, and she is supposed to be very familiar with Japan. She also asked some downright bizzarre and unanswerable ones. "Did the dog die?" "Isn't that so-and-so from the airport?"

I had to repeat myself so many times and found that she often missed the obvious (looks for a hat while she is wearing it, looks for me when I'm standing in front of her, looks for a handkerchief even though she found it in her handbag 5 minutes ago, etc.). She had a very impaired sense of direction and argued with me over really stupid things. She also seems unable, or at least unwilling, to pay attention to verbal instructions. Everything needs to be repeated many times. I hate when people repeat obvious things to me and I hate repeating myself, which is why it was especially frustrating.

I'm not sure how bad this will get, but she was nowhere near this bad when I was still in college. I feel bad about having reacted in anger a couple of times but I couldn't help it. I only had to deal for a week, too. It's an unpleasant combination of anger, fear, tiredness, and shock.

Well, I have never been one to pour out my problems in real life, let alone online. I just sorta keep it inside, and let it fester until it leaves. Its my problem and i don't wanna sound whiny or attention seeking, i can deal with it. This time I thought i would give it a try, however. So here goes.

I'm pretty sure I am the most morally ambiguous person on the planet.

Religion is a big part of my life, and so are my environment, family and friends. I just wish they could get along more....

Every time a big "Social issue" comes up, I often find myself having entirely different opinions from my friends and my religion. Especially in a world where even uttering the phrase "hallelujah" will have people associating you with the Westboro baptist church.

To put it frankly, I don't know who to believe. I don't what to think. I Keep going in circles trying to understand, trying to find a middle ground, but there never is one. I feel like I'm stuck in a department store where I can only choose one product, and everyone is screaming at me to try theirs specific one. I guess in the end, I don't want to be tricked into buying the wrong thing.

so I guess that's whats "eating me..."

I know that feeling, even though I'm not religious. My friends from high school are in a politically different place than I am in their opinions. We're not so far apart that we disagree on everything, but we almost always disagree on social issues so when I disagree I just don't say anything to them. I figure they can have their opinions, and I can have mine. I have an in-law that I disagree with in the same way so we've both agreed to disagree more than a few times because we're both so stubborn that it's all we can do to maintain our relationship. I don't mind expressing my disagreement with him for that very reason though. My friends are much less likely to agree to disagree because they care about their causes so strongly.
