This is a non judgemental place where you can rant about your feelings or what you are happy about and what you are pissed off about. It is a listening post more than a response post. Let fly and we'll see what we get! Here's mine. I miss a lot of my old friends that I can never hang out with anymore. It used to belong to a medieval society called the SCA. Every Sunday and on occasion another weekday we would dress up in full medieval armor and proceed to bash each other with big sticks. Again, we wore armour and had shields so it wasn't too painful. We would go home with welts and bruises but rarely anything more serious. Anyways we would always go and get some beer and have some laughs afterwards. There's nothing like hitting your friend in the head with a big stick and laughing about it over a beer! It was really good times. When the kids get a bit older I'm going out and doing it again. I'm very excited! Ok, that's me, your turn!

Good luck to you, I have found that the past is never recoverable. I guess this is one of my rants. People keep looking back or forward, what about now, it's taken so much for granted that we miss it and by doing so miss most of our lives. Here is to realizing the POWER OF NOW

I never much cared for SCA or most Scaers. I never was a "medivelist" I was an SF fan. Now, if you had The Doctor wander thru a tourny, COOL! I've known lots of folks into SCA, but most dropped out because they honestly got tired of the politics.

Well I'm not to pissed off about anything right now, so that's good. I am a little upset right now with the economy (surprise, surprise, right?) But it is very much so affecting my family right now because my husband has been laid off from work for a few weeks now. He has applied for several jobs in which he is qualified for, but we haven't had any luck yet and haven't heard from any of the companies. We hear about hundreds of jobs practically vanishing before our eyes. Companies shuting down because they just can't afford to operate anymore. But I am happy right now too. I haven't been thankful for having a good friend for quite a while now. Ever since I had a baby at 19, I haven't been as close to my friends that I went to high school with. We're still friends and all, but we just don't have the time to talk and hang out like we used to, and we somewhat have different interests now as well. But I've been working at an office for a year and a half now and since I've been there I have gotten to know everyone and have made a few good friends. I have been hanging out with one person inparticular and we've come to be VERY good friends. She's about 20 years older than I am, but we have so much in common. We even learned that she grew up 3 houses down from where I did! She confides in me with secrets she doesn't tell anyone but me, and that makes me feel so special! :) So as much as it makes me feel happy, I'm guessing she's enjoying it just as much as I am...if she's telling me stuff she doesn't tell anyone else, that means she didn't have anyone else to tell before we met. So I hope she feels just as lucky as I do.
