Writer's Block: Half a Glass

Do you consider yourself an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist?
pessimistic realist
After his business failed and his wife left, a man decided to kill himself, but he wanted to be sure that he wouldn't botch the operation. After some thought he decided that hanging would be the best method. He found a tree with a stout limb reaching out over the edge of a cliff 50 feet above the sea and chose this spot for his suicide.

Although he was eager to leave this world, he did not want to feel any pain. So he collected a few dozen sleeping pills.

Of course, sleeping pills don't work immediately, and the man had read terrible stories of people who had taken half an hour to die at the end of a rope. He decided to shoot himself, too - just to be on the safe side.

On the day he decided would be his last, the man took the rope, the sleeping pills and the gun to the cliff. He swallowed the sleeping pills. He tied the rope to the branch and slipped the noose around his neck. He put the gun to his head and as he stepped of the edge of the cliff, he fired.

But the sudden drop threw off the man's aim. The bullet missed him completely and cut through the rope instead. The man plunged into the sea where he swallowed so much seawater that he vomited up the sleeping pills.

He swam ashore and resolved not to attempt suicide again.

I think I'm going to change up my LJ a bit since I don't really use it anymore. Instead of it being a place for me to vent (which I rarely do anyways) I'm going to use it to post things about urban legends and the paranormal. Those are my passions so this would be a good place for it. So I hope you all enjoy the stories I post here.

Looking up finally

I never would have thought that I would find such joy in the whole working with children field. I was so certain that criminal justice was the only place for me. I just finished my second week at La Petite Academy and there is such a change in me.

I love it. I love the kids, my coworkers the whole situation. Sure the money sucks but that never even plays on my thoughts anymore. I'm actually happy. It is such a great feeling to walk into the building and hear all the kids yelling hi to me or running up to give me a hug. It can certainly be stressful but at the same time so much has been lifted of my shoulders.

I lost 3 pounds this weeks, and though some may think that's nothing, it's a big deal for me. For the longest time I couldn't lose weight because of medications I was put on and stress. If anything I only gained weight. Now suddenly the weight seems to want to come off. Perhaps in time I'll get back to what I use to be and won't get so disgusted with myself.

But that is enough for now. I don't need to go writing a book. I just had to express how happy I am that I seem to finally have found a place in life to start on the right path of taking control of my life and being happy.

Heartbroken

A freak accident took one of my birds from me this past sunday. I don't want to go into much detail on it because already I can feel tears welling up at just thinking about it. I truly feel as though I've lost a child. And why shouldn't I feel that way? I was there the day she was laid, the day she hatched, the day she took her first flight and even hand-fed her. I've been there since day one with her, just like a mother with a baby. She didn't even make it a quarter of her lifespan. I should have her with me still for at least another 10-12 years. But I have three other cockatiels that need my love and attention and I'll be damned if another freak accident takes them from me. My animals are my life as anyone who knows me would tell you. From my dogs, to my cat and to my birds, I would do whatever needs to be done to keep them safe, healthy and happy.

Oh my god, i'm in so much pain. But at least my teeth are finally starting to look as they should. Dental work is the worse if you ask me. I've had other injuries and well you can do more for them to rid yourself of the pain than you can for the mouth. I'm actually near tears. >_< But yea. Just wanted everyone to know I'm still alive, even if barely at the moment.

I had a job interview yesterday and actually would have had the job but I turned it down. It was selling cars and frankly with the economy the way it is I don't want to have to rely on commission. But that's all for now. It's time for pain pills and bed.

better late then never

For those who don't know I'm not a fan of valentine's day and haven't been since I was a young child. But still I wish you all a happy valentine's day.





Help?! Please?

Anyone feel like helping me do up a lay out for this LJ? Let me know if so.
Gah. I have to go to the dentist tomorrow. The appointment is going to last for at least 2 hours before of the work that needs to be done. Tomorrow is going to suck.

I'm not sure what my problem is today. Talk about a case of bipolor (though I'm not bipolor). One minute I'm laughing and in a great mood, the next I just want to cry. Maybe it was the weather. Though normally I enjoy the rain. Another restless night may have been the cause of it. Who knows? I certainly don't. Maybe I'm just due for one of those cries. You know the kind. The cries that there's just no reason for but yet you can't hold it in. The type where someone would ask you why you're crying and all you can say is "I don't know." Well reguardless of whether or not that's the reason, the tears aren't coming and there's no point in bitching about it now. But at least I got another update out. Hopefully soon I'll actually have something positive to post about.

BTW incase anyone cares I finally got yahoo messenger and ICQ back onto the computer so if anyone wants those or my aim let me know.
