@Girls:
You have a very negative view on life and it makes me really sad. There's so much to live for, really. Don't focus on this period in your life only. The studies, the lack of amusement, the strict house rules sometimes... it's not exactly how you feel it should be, I know. It's more like your life is ruled by others... and in a way it is. All this is a step to an adult and maybe better life. I can't tell you if you will meet the right loving partner and have kids or not. Or if you will have success or possess everything you've ever dreamed of. You have to make the best of what you have, and what's still to come. Believe me, even if you have to deal with major problems during the process... life can be worthwhile. Be happy with the little things first. And never ever be jealous of those who have more.
I do hope you manage your way out of this boringness. Try to think positive and laugh a little bit more... okay.
I know how I can cheer you up guys. Go to the Wha? forum and start reading all the jokes in the threads 'Photo Captioning and Photo Captioning 2'. Sometimes I go there myself if I'm in desperate need of a laugh. It really helps.

@Rich:
It was also on the news here in Belgium. Someone has a weapon and ruins so many lives in such a short time. It's terrible.
In the States, people are allowed to posses weapons so they can protect themselves from those who use violence. Am I right?
In my country... it's almost impossible to own a weapon because of the rules and laws. In a certain way it's reassuring.
When I was in the Tennessee last year, my friend an I were driving 30 miles from downtown Nashville to her place. It was middle in the night and we had practically no traffic. A guy was riding behind us, quite close to our bumper. My friend gave him the finger, and as a result of her action he started teasing us from that moment on. He drove next to us, then in front of our car, and again next to us... making all sorts of angry faces while sticking out his tongue... and this during a 23 scary miles. And my friend encouraged his anger with more ugly signs.
One moment I saw him looking for something in his car and I thought he would take a gun a shoot us both. When we came at my friend's place, I had to go to the bathroom immediately and throw up. I asked her afterwards "Why the hell you had to do that, he could have followed us home. I wasn't afraid at all, didn't you see that I made a detour, she said. Well yeah... one day she won't be so lucky.

@Jana:
It all depends on the parents how a child will grow up. Children will not be influenced that easily if the parents give the good example and be consequent. It's difficult to be strict and warmhearted at the same time, I know. But when you let your children feel how much you love them, you give them a good start for future life. Explaining the positive and the negative sides of live is also very important. Parents should speak with their kids about anything that interests them. As long as they're old enough to understand what you're talking about, of course. Parents should also listen to what their children have to say... as long as the young ones remain respectful. Even small, everyone has the right to speak freely.
This said... you have your heart in the right place Jana. Your little niece is a very lucky girl to have you in her life.

Sheilah, I appreciate ur advice, really, but I dont think it was necessary for u to say that we all 'have a very negative view on life.' I really love my life right now, honestly. What I meant in my post was that I just want to make more out of my life, that's all.

Lauren, I spoke in general... it was not specific directed to you. But I'm glad you replied and told me that you want to improve things in your life.
This is surely a positive way of thinking. And I wish you all the best.

^it is true it is much too easy to get a weapon here. In the tragedy yesterday they said the police were there in 2 minutes - 2 minutes! The police admitted that they could not stop something like this, only contain it. I don't think 6 dead is actually containing it. Right wingers will continue to defend everyone's right to just about any type of gun or rifle out there. They cling to a perverted interpretation of the 2nd amendment of our constitution,
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This concept dates back to 12th century England where King Henry required all free men to bear arms in defense of the state. We may have needed some such protections in the 1770's when fighting for freedom. Today weapons can take away your freedom in a quick 2 minutes.

Thanks for replying Sheilah. Sometimes my view on life can be negative, and I try to look at the bigger picture. Some days I feel like complete shit (like the day I posted) and other days I feel just fine (like today). I go from hot to cold (depression to elation or vice versa) in seconds flat. That worries me a lot. But, at the moment I'm happy and I'm able to keep the bad things in perspective and focus on the good. I don't really know how to explain how exactly I feel during the bad times though, because it's SO many different things getting to me. I don't know. I really don't.

@Rich, I have always thought that there should REALLY be a stricter gun control policy. The 2nd ammendment (along with a majority of the others) is rather vague, and it really needs to be re-examined. It is far too easy to get firearms, and too many people have been needless killed.

Sheilah: I know you spoke in general, but still, thanks. It's just a few days that get me really depressed and wondering what's happening in my life. Other days, I try to enjoy every second in my life.

As for the shootings that happened, I'm in shock. I don't know what the world is coming to. It's like people are being killed by guns very frequently. First the shootings last year, and now this. Is it really that easy to get guns? I agree, with Bre, there should definitely be more strict rules on who can buy a gun. There are deaths happening that could be prevented. Amendment or not, I don't think it's right for everyone to own a gun.

Oooh.. I hope that test works out for you.

Mine is definitely not as serious as a baby, but it's still making me a bit depressed.

There was this kid at my school who I had liked for a while, and then I came to find out that pretty much everyone was saying he liked me, and I started to see it. (I mean he asked my friends what I thought of him and walked me to class and started eating lunch with me.)Then he asked me to be his valentine, and that got me excited. But on valentines day, he didn't even wish me a happy valentines day. I mean, I wasn't there (I was on a trip in San Antonio that he knew about ahead of time), but he could've at least texted me or something. There are other areas where he talks to me more than he did before, but I don't know.. I'm just getting a weird vibe like he doesn't like me anymore and it's making me sad. That's the first time someone has ever liked me, that I knew of and I liked him back. ahhhh.. and I'm 17. Sad eh?

That is not sad at all, RaHoSa. And guys sending mixed signals is among the worst things in the world (well, maybe not, but it's god damn frustrating lol) Maybe you could look into it, asking your mutual friends or something if something happened? I really understand if you don't feel like confronting him yourself, you don't want to see too pushy. But at the same time you really wanna know... Aaah, the troubles of the teen... I'm nearly 20 and I haven't been in serous love since I was 16, and that guy also wen't around giving mixed signals... he was such an a*shole. Oh well. Since you haven't done anything wrong I shouldn't worry, RaHoSa

Oh, and katie, I hope I was able give you the advices you asked for hun Hope it works out for you!
