Nashvilles Circle Players tell true story of Titanic
"Its just heartbreaking, because you think about ... the sinking of the Titanic. Trevor Allison was brought to a lifeboat by his nursemaid after the ship struck the iceberg. But mom, dad and little sister Lorraine didnt know where the little boy went.
Its a very long story, Im too involved now, what can I do? Who does she love?
I started going to this church group last year. On July 4 2007 I started hanging out with this girl from the group. On August 13 2007 (I have really good memory), I told her that I think I’m falling for you because I felt completely different last night after walking you home after watching Rush Hour 3. She was shocked, I didn’t know what to do since I was new to all this. A week later I called her up and I tell her we need to talk, I was drunk and crying. I told her everything about me. That I’ve never been with a girl, had 2 encounters in the past where I had the opportunity to have sex, but I didn’t because I want to save myself for marriage. I come to learn more about her, that her father died on her sweet 16 birthday, and that her first love left her and she got pregnant. Now she has a 2 year old boy. She told me she was already interested in someone. I respected her decision, and we quickly became best friends. After 2 months I didn’t see her with anyone yet and was still attracted to her so I asked her out again, but she told me that she was already dating someone and that someone was from the church group too. It hurt me that she would not have told me sooner. It hurt me to see them together, I was unstable for 3 weeks. I finally came to accept reality that they were together. Sometime around November she tells me that she was having doubts about her boyfriend. When she told me she was having doubts about him, I told her over the phone how I truly felt about her, I said something like “I love you, I know it’s real because I feel something burning inside when I’m with you, that’s why it hurts so much when I see you with him, your boyfriend is just an obstacle that I have to get through, I’m not going to give up on you just like Jack didn’t give up on Rose (from Titanic, her favorite movie of all time), I’m going to use everything I know”, that’s when I first heard her crying for the first time, so something was seriously wrong. I started doing a lot of things for her, taking her to and picking her up from school. Talking with her a lot over the phone, doing all the things that her boyfriend wasn’t doing, and getting close to her son to get her trust. On December 2 2007 on a Sunday, it snowed and they got into a huge argument, and they broke up. I knew this was my opportunity to ask her what happened. On December 3 2007 I took the day off work as an emergency, she told me that she loves him, but he never said it back, that she didn’t expect that from him, he promised her that he would never hurt her. But he ended up hurting her because they had sexual relations, and he would only start being nice only when he would want the sex. Once I found out I told her that if you go back to him, I’m going to be real disappointed and you won’t see me. I also asked her to stand in front of me and close your eyes, when she did, I asked her to open them. I had to tell her several times until she opened them and I just gave her a rose. That’s when she broke down in tears on my chest and I told her “I knew what was on your mind, you thought that I was going to kiss you, but I can’t do anything you don’t want me to”. December 4, she calls me up and tells me that they are back together, so I tell her don’t call me anymore, I told her that she can keep my movies, maybe you can learn something from them just like I did. I let her keep “American Beauty”, “The Notebook” and “Braveheart”, I was full with anger. Before I departed for Mexico on vacation on December 17 2007, I gave her Christmas present like I promised after she asked me a few weeks ago if I was going to give it to her even if I was angry at her. I gave her an 8GB iPod Nano and filled it up with her type of music and some of my rock music, she said it’s the most expensive gift she has ever gotten. When I came back on December 27, she called me to tell me that she was thinking of me the whole time I was in Mexico, and I told her the same. She compared me to Jack from Titanic and that it’s like I got magic. On New Year’s I ditched my family party because she invited me to her family party and I went. On my birthday January 9 2008 I spent most of my day with her. She once told me to stop using her kid to get to her. I gave her another rose and told her that when I give you the third rose, then I’m really leaving, you won’t hear from me again. She said she does not want me to give her the third rose. And now just on January 29 I told her “these last few weeks I’ve been trying to get on your mind, I’ve done that, now I have to get in your heart but I’m not sure if I’m there yet, and you probably wont tell me”. We just continued talking, her kid needed something, when she came back I was on the couch sitting and she jumped on me, and she just hugged me and she kissed me, not just a little peck, tongue and everything. She told me “You got me, I love you”.
I cancelled my plans with my cousin because she wanted me to go to the Manhattan Mall and Times Square with her holding hands the whole time. And just yesterday she asked me “how do you know it’s real?”, she said I still have a lot to learn. She asked me, how do you know it’s real? How does she know who she loves?
I’ve told her “I love you” hundreds of times, I can understand that she doesn’t want me to leave because of her unstable life, I’m probably the best person to come into her life. She probably doesn’t want to break it off with the other guy because they are both leaders of the church group we are in, and it would look bad on her, she’s worried about gossip and reputation. She knows the real guy that I am. I stopped old habits of drinking and smoking for her, I learned how to dance for her because she loves to dance, she took the fear of not being myself around other people, she knows everything about me, that I was in the marines, I am not afraid to say that Im a virgin, that Im saving myself till marriage. I know most guys will say Im a loser and I dont care. And she knows this. She said that I’m the one that is hard to find. I’ve told her that I would treat her son like he’s my son. I’ve heard “there’s plenty of fish on the sea” thing, but I feel she’s not a fish, she’s the mermaid I’ve been looking for.
Answer: you're the man!!! gosh!!! i almost fell... guess what, you deserve the best among the best... i wish she will see the beauty and goodness in you... you're one gem of a man... and if she still continue having an affair to both of you, you better let go... though you've found the mermaid in her,.. soon you'll find the princessess mermaid you ever deserved.!!!! goodluck!

Girls, please help! Only girls answer this question!?
So i have this problem and i wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else.
I live in a very conservative neighborhood, so my family isnt really keen on girls going out. There was this boy, who was my best friends brother, and at the start, i stayed friendly to him like i stay to everyone else. Im a very creative person, and i thought myself to be a romantic. I write a lot, and any romantic sequence in my stories made people swoon. I loved seeing couples, and i loved romantic movies, and i still do but things seemed to have changed for me now.
So anyway, after a little time, that boy started to act really weird, like, i had gone to a picnic with a few friends after much groveling to my parents, and there were boys there too, and of course we had take pictures of the event, and when i posted them on my homepage, he said that he felt really weird seeing me with other guys. Now, i hate guys who are cry babies because my dad is sort of a rough guy so i took that from him, that i hate men acting weak, and the guy said that he wanted to cry when he saw that i was out with other guys. It was all really awkward so i told him to stop acting idiotic and become a man. After a few days, i got an e-mail from him in which he proclaimed his love for me. I was a bit freaked out by that, and when i told my best friends about what he had written, they were more shocked than i were because he was a quiet guy. I was also a bit peeved that didnt he have enough guts to say it to my face?!
I wrote back to him that i wasnt interested and that i will always think of him as a friend and i dont want his feelings to come in the way since i didnt like him that way. He said okay but than he said that he will try to win me over.
I knew it wasnt going to happen but i played along anyway because it takes time for him to understand things since hes a bit stubborn. At first he was really charming to me, and i thought, okay so hes nice, but not anything else. After wards, he started showing me his true colors. He started telling me to finish off my friendship with any other guy because since he didnt have any friends who were girls, i shouldnt have any friends who were guys. I was freaked out and got into a huge fight with him that he has no right to say anything like that to me, and just because hes too chicken to talk to a girl doesnt mean i have to stop talking to boys, he told me to become anti-social and said that he didnt like it that i could have guy friends when he didnt have any friends who were girls. I told him that i never told him not to have any girlfriends, so he should say the same to me. It was resolved after but he started to fight about tiny things, and was quite insensitive. There had been a death in my family, of a very dear uncle, and on that very day, he started fighting that i should "again" not tell all my friends that someone has died. Although i had only told a friend via message on FB that i couldnt come to her party because of a death in the family, and he started acting all psycho.
I couldnt take it anymore so i told him that we should might as well finish our friendship because it wasnt doing any of us any good, and he said, "Youre breaking up with me?" Needless to say, i was quite frustrated when he said that, because we hadnt even been on a date ever.
Now, i saw during the entire time i was with him that i really hated it when he gave me gifts or looked at me with goo-goo eyes. I hated the titanic song, although all my friends say that its the most romantic song to date. I hated the chocolates, and roses and songs that he would send me.
Now that its all finished, i feel angry at him because he wasted so much of my time. And now, i cant write anything romantic because when i do write it, i think, this doesnt happen in real life, why should i write it?! I found out that i am totally unromantic now, and even though i still love seeing couples walking arm-in-arm, and even though i still love romantic movies like pride and prejudice, i hate the idea of romance because he has ruined it for me. I thought he might woo me in a romantic way, but he turned out to be crazy.
And when i had broken up with him, he had said to me that he will never rest until he is sure that i am happy, even if i get married, he will see for himself whether i am happy or not, i just sighed because he was hopeless.
Now i feel just angry almost all the time, even though i didnt like him that way, but i just dont know why i feel this way. I know it wasnt love because Ive seen what love is, and my feelings were far from that. What is wrong with me now? Why do i hate romance now? What should i do now?
Now please girls, dont give mean answers or something, just respect my feelings and tell me what to do. Also this was my first relationship. :(
Answer: Your first relationship, honey you just finished saying that you guys never dated and you were never together so needless to say Even if you hated the way the guy ways, you like it, it just wasn't something you were use to, something you weren't quite fond of, Get it out of your system, that you were with him because you never were, you just said it was your first relationship..it was never a relationship in the first place, thats why you can finish it, stop being friends with him and ignore, if you can't stop being friends with him don't take him seriously, and don't let him get into your head This guy in my school is the same, upset the fact he never gave me roses and stuff like that, he told me i love you in my face o.o, and drew me stuff and would tell me all about his life, once i figured everything about him, i thought he was pathetic, always wining complaining, and his grades are horrrible, im friends with him but he pisses me off and shit, he does stupid things acts like a child, and plus he smells sometimes...yuck Really, you just need to talk to another guy, and be happy with your friends and just ignore this dude, his annoying aggravating and just d*mn stupid His a great guy but...no just ignore and don't take seriously

33 Things You Didn't Know About The Movie "Titanic"
In celebration of Titanic's return to theaters next Wednesday (!!!!), here's a collection of facts about the movie you probably didn't know. posted about 6 days ago ...
We are so close but she rejected me... what is this girl thinking exactly?
Can guys and girls ever be real close friends without either party mistaking it for something more? I think not... it just doesnt seem possible. If you are that close to a friend of the opposite friend, you probably spend a lot of time together, texting or gossiping about everything else. Subconsciously, you will view her as the "perfect one" because both of you have so much common interests and she genuinely accepts you for who you are.
The above scenario is actually a detailed description of a girl, (lets call her G), and I. G and I have known each other for slightly more than a month but we are rather close, going to lectures together and always bitching about everything there is to bitch about in the world. Being around her makes me feel so comfortable as we would constantly say things that make the other party laugh. She makes me feel extremely fortunate to know someone like her and I would genuinely laugh at even the slightest of things she says, or even just at her silliness and accent (shes no local). We text each other almost everyday, sometimes just complaining and talking about stupid things for long hours. She is single and so am I and we are of the same age, making everything almost too good to be true. It didnt happen at the beginning, I didnt think i liked her until someone pointed out that maybe I should. That was when I started to give it some thought and after 2 weeks of struggling with whether or not I should put our friendship on the line, I finally decided to man up and ask her out. That was probably one of the proudest and most disappointing moment of my life.
So 2 days ago, I ask G face to face if she was free on a Saturday stating that I would like to bring her out for dinner and the response I got made me lost for words. "Why?" was her reply to "Are you free on Saturday?" and "For what?" followed after I suggested bringing her out for dinner. Seeing that she had no clue entirely where this was headed, i dropped the bombshell with "Im trying ask you out.". Through her reaction, she was obviously surprised and never saw it coming. From this, I concluded that she had never given any thought about us, not even once. G when on to say that shes not free on Saturday because she will be working and changed the subject immediately. I finally got to experience the feeling of Titanic sinking. It was my first time ever asking a girl out and honestly, I thought the odds were pretty good due to how close we were. After which, seeing how things became weird, I texted her while she was on the bus, apologizing for making things so uncomfortable. We smsed a bit, talking about it (although I think it will be better if we had a face to face talk) and then she said if I wanna hang out next time, ask others to join in so that she will feel more comfortable. That sentence really shook me. I really care about her and by saying so, it really shattered me inside. So are we no longer friends? Some part of me just refused to let it happen and we continued texting talking about it and eventually, it became slightly better and we are now back to smsing about anything again. But even so, it is obvious that awkwardness is still there. Part of me feels that Ive been used as a tool for boredom extermination during school and technical assistance whenever she faces problems in IT (shes not very IT savvy) while the other part refuses to believe so because i really do like her and so do not see her as a person who uses others like that.
Then I asked myself again and again, the things I did for her, was it not obvious enough? How could she not have seen it at all??? I reply her text almost immediately. I volunteer to help her out in anything. I will only wanna sit with her in lectures. I will try to have a meal with her whenever possible. I always ask her about her day, her opinion of this and that and would listen to her complains. How was it even possible that she didnt even catch a single clue? If she sees it, then why does she keep on misleading me? Till now, she hasnt told me the reason for rejecting me and hence, Im very confused to what exactly is happening over here. I felt like shit yesterday, not entirely for the disappointing rejection (frankly speaking Im quite ok with it), but more for straining and making things weird for our close friendship. I feel bad for making her feel lousy after she told me its not the first time a close friend liked her. I feel like my big mouth was the source for all these mayhem. How I wished I could just turn back time and take back whatever I said... I can lie to everyone else that Im ok with it, even G, but deep down inside I know, I will always care for her.
But right now... things are starting to get awkward and i dunno what i should do...
Answer: dude listen to me, don't you ever and i mean ever even if you think you have a chance still not even then don't ever ask your best friend out. dumb move i made the same mistake i got married to mine and it blew up in my face. putting your friendship on the line is totally not worth it, if she doesn't seem interested in you beyond friendship you will know. woman have a way of telling you if they are interested or not. if she didn't make the first move she isn't interested, she may even push away from you now because you did something stupid like that your never suppose to ask your best friend out. dumb-ass im gonna tell you in advance i wouldn't do it again she will make the first move OK trust me if shes even a bit interested. she will hint to you,and you will know that she is hinting to you.i don't wanna see anyone get hurt from the same way i did.

What could this dream mean?
I had a dream last night that I was going to go on a cruise. It looked exactly like the Titanic and was even called "Titanic II". Before I got on the boat I met this guy (I know its sounding cliché but bear with me), hed dropped his hat in the water at the docks and it was floating away really fast but he couldnt swim so he couldnt go out to get it, he was really rich and the hat mustve been expensive so I jumped in and got it out for him and he was like really nice and he thought it was amazing that I would just do that for a total stranger. Anyway, the whole reason why I was going on the cruise was because my mother had gotten a job as one of the cooks on board but not for all the rich people, for all the poorer people. Me and this random guy kept hanging out together on the cruise and we were walking around this one day and he was like "I want to buy you a teddy bear" So we went to a gift shop but when we got in there the shelves were totally empty. The guy was like "...Where is everything?" and the shopkeeper was like "We didnt stock anything for the last day..." and we were like "huh?" but then I was like "Wait...how long into the trip did the Titanic sink?" and the guy was like "5. Why?" then I was like "They said they didnt stock anything for the last day and this is the fifth day....whats going on?" and we turned to the shopkeeper and she told us that the whole cruise was just this big plot to create a re-enactment of the Titanic disaster and everyone that signed up for the cruise was going to die because the people who organized the cruise were going to cut all the life boats loose and intentionally crash the ship into an iceberg. So naturally we freaked out and went around trying to find my mother and his friends and we got them but theyd already cut all the lifeboats loose so we jumped off the side of the ship and swam over to this island that was like off in the distance...it was only like a tiny little sandbank thing and we were right in the middle of the Arctic ocean. We knew that the ship was going to sink and there was almost nothing we could do about it but we wanted to try and stop it anyway so me and this guy started swimming over to these ice platform things and we started climbing up these huge ice walls because we wanted to get to a populated area to find someone that could help all the people on the boat and we were running for like hours and hours over these huge ice things and we ended up in Slovenia and we tried to get planes to go over to where we were but by the time we had got there the ship had sunk and there was this great big tidal wave frozen just about to hit all of the friends we left on the sandbank but they were still alive and just staring at the frozen wave.
Whats the go with that dream? Does it have any meaning?
Answer: mean nothing

A question about my lucid dreaming?
(Dont bother reading unless you understand lucid dreaming, haha. I basically typed a novel)
So in the past few years, I have been having many lucid dreams. Some of my lucid dreams were so realistic, that Id go through the day in the dream thinking it was an actual day of my life. However, what worries me is that lately, Ive been attacked in my lucid dreams, and with each lucid dream, I become closer and closer to becoming defeated.
The last lucid dream that I had almost died in, I couldnt wake up.
My friends and I laugh at the fact that every Harry Potter related dream I have is lucid and completely realistic. But yeah, the last one I almost died in, I summoned brooms and all my friends flew off on theirs, but when I jumped out of a two story high window on my broom, I crashed to the ground and felt the pain of the fall. Then Voldemort (lol) and the Deatheaters started to come closer, so I ran to the woods and hid in a tree, and they found out where I was, so I took an invisibility (looool) potion and ran past them, so they started trying to aim Avada Kedavra (LOL) spells at me, and I was like "OH SHIT I GOTTA WAKE UP" and I kept trying to wake up but COULDNT. So I kept running and locked myself up in the house, and I panicked, worrying that I was stuck in the dream, and then I jumped into the fireplaces Floo Network (for those who dont know, its like a portal in the HP world) and teleported, and that somehow woke me back up.
I have never been unable to wake up from a lucid dream, so it was pretty intense and scary. I mean, just think of how freaky itd be.
My lucid dreams are so real, that once I met the Harry Potter (Hahahha) in one at an in-dream party, and at first they didnt wanna talk to me, but we eventually became friends, but to see if it was a dream I grabbed leaves off the trees and stuck them in my mouth and chewed on them and I could taste them and even feel every little part of the leaves rubbing against my mouth. It got even creepier when one of them asked why I was eating leaves. Like, seriously, some are so real that I think they actually are.
Ive had lucid dreams about stuff like history and things like that before I even learned about it, especially when I was young. When I was like 6, I used to have lucid dreams about things like Jean Darc, the Titanic, the Bridge of Sighs, etc before I ever learned about them.
Through lucid dreaming, I even experienced exactly what a vagina felt like inside and out before I had my first experience with one, which turned out to be exactly how I dreamt it. (Hahahahaha)
Okay, so my questions are:
1) Could you explain why I had trouble with waking up?
2) Is it bad that I am getting closer and closer to death?
3) I heard from many sources that injuries/death in lucid dreaming can produce shock on the physical body or even heart attacks. Is this true?
4) Do most lucid dreamers have lucid dreams this realistic and is it possible to have, I dunno, pyschic moments of learning in lucid dreams?
haha, I love how people are asking if I was on drugs.
Im talking about lucid dreaming... look it up.
Its like a trip in your sleep. Its when you can control yourself in your dream and you experience all 5 senses and you can do anything.
Answer: in your dream maybe you really didnt want to wake up and you wanted to see what would happen. it could be bad if you get closer to death because if you can tsnap out of it you might stay asleep, but not dead, like a coma. i dont think u could get heart attacks or shock but like i said before if you get too deep in a dream you might not be able to get out. yes some people do see flashes of future events, my aunt used to do it. and yes there that realistic. i suggest since you lucid dream, dont die! transport yourself to a land of your favorite candy :) hope i helped.

Question 1) Who out there still LOVE Titanic till now?
ME! ahahah! ME! I still love Titanic even thought its my first time watching it around 3 or 4 months ago. I mean its just soooo touching! :D I cried alot. I didnt want to watch Titanic from when i first heard about it cause i know ill just cry till i cant stop since i heard that the story was veryvery sad and touching. I started watching when my sister was playing it on tv. I called her to stop the movie[cause i know that ill know that ill follow her and watch that movie then cry my heart out] but then she didnt listen. After awhile, i got so caught into it that i, myself didnt want to stop the movie at that time already. I just love that movie so much. And so, thats how i watched Titanic for the first time in my life around 3 or 4 months ago. :D
Question 2) Why? Why do you like Titanic?
Well, for me, i dont know. I just love Leo and Kate together. They together make the greatest chemistry you could ever imagine. The plot and their acting is just marvellous!
Question 3) Do you want Leo and Kate to be together?
ahahha! Yeahh, i know that Kates married. BUT we still can dream right? hehehe. Yes, its me! I want them to be together. Theyre just too perfect!
Question 4) Did you watch Revolutionary road?
I havent watch it yet. I think its nice. No matter how horrible it is, i still think its nice since theyre starring in that movie. Leo and Kate are the best!
Please no anti-titanic or anti-leokate fans. :D:D I would appreciate it if no one here writes bad things about it.

10 Things You Didn't Know About “Titanic”

I Lied, and said Ive been playing the Piano for 9 years, when Ive only played for 1. What do I do?
So I was talking to my English teacher after Christmas break, and he was asking everyone what they got for Christmas. When he came around to me, I told him I got a piano, which was the truth. And he was like "Oh, you know how to play?" And I said yeah, which is also the truth. He asked how long ive been playing, and I panicked. I didnt wanna say a year because I didnt know if he would say "oh, I thought you were gonna say like 10 years." So I didnt know what to do, I said I started playing when I was 7, and im 15 now. He was like oh wow, thats great. Then he asked what my favorite things to to play were, and I panicked again, and said Thriller and Titanic. He asked if I ever played for my Chorus teacher, who plays the piano. I said no, which is true. So a few days went by, and I figured he probably forgot about it, so I wasnt worried about it anymore. But today, I was in Chorus class, and she was explaining all the different signs on sheet music. She asked what the C meant, and I new what it meant, so I raised my hand and said "Common Time". And she was like "Right, howd you....... Oh yeah! Mr. Belanger told me you play the piano, youll have to play for the class sometime." I just said yeah, but I have major stage fright problems." And she was like "Well will just have to have a talk, and break you of your fear." And I said okay. Im not sure if my English teacher told her how long I told him I play. If he did, shes probably expecting me to be really good. I am pretty decent at the piano, and I know a few things by heart that I could play, but nothing special. I dont know what to do. Advice?
Answer: well... you should learn that it was a silly thing to do, and remember how it feels next time you think you have to impress someone. (playing piano for a year is not something to be ashamed of. ???) BUT to fix it now. you could come clean... but i doubt you will do that, since you lied because you were ashamed... so telling the truth would probably feel worse for you. (you should try get over this eventually) you can say... "hey, i know you want to hear me play, but i have to explain i started trying to play when i was 7, but i didnt study continuously since then... ive only been back at it for a year, so i'm not as good as i may have lead you to believe." if you even messed around with a piano informally when you were little, that would be true-ish... (but this is still not a good habit to get into.) do you mean you were lying about being able to play the songs you listed? fortunately, the tunes you named are not specific hard pieces. you would be in big trouble if you had listed major concertos or something. actually... they are rather weird things for a kid who had been taking lessons for that long to mention, so you have already kinda outed yourself as not being advanced in a classical sense. those pieces are not originally just for piano, so anything you played would be an arrangement, and there are harder and easier arrangements. so perhaps you can make that statement retroactively true :) titanic, i assume you mean the famous song from that movie? heres a very easy one: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0062768& heres a slightly harder one: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0055186& and thriller easy: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0075576 also easy: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0087360 maybe even easier: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0075574& harder: http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtdFPE.asp?ppn=MN0072610& yeah, that one has a vocal part, but it looks like all its note are doubled in the piano, so you can just play the piano part. i think i know why you did this... i remember being younger, and being embarrassed to carry my instrument around because people would think i was a musician and i didnt think i was yet because i wasn't good enough. but you shouldnt be ashamed to be at that stage. everyone who gets good was in your place at one time. being a beginner isnt shameful, but being afraid to start because of "what people will think" would be. i can guarantee your teachers are thinking about this less than you think they are. and they're expectations may be lower than you think. just learn a tune and play it in class.
What do you feel about the"World Trade Center" movie?
I have not actually seen this movie, but I wonder whether it seems tasteless to those who lost loved ones in this disaster. I know they advertise it as a survival story, but it still brings to mind the fact that many didnt survive!
I thought the same thing about the "Titanic", even though it was longer ago.
Answer: I think its ok that they made the movie, I haven't seen it, but have heard that it was tastefully done. For me, my father is a NYC firefighter and I just couldn't bear to relive the day again. I know that i would have bawled thru the whole movie. My mom and brother saw it and they said yes it was sad, but it was good. It showed love, courage, loyalty and family. I would like to see it one day, but for me it is just too soon. I had also heard that the some of the profits from the movie are being donated.

help, what would you do about a depressed friend?
4 weeks ago i bought him a vhs-dvd player because when he got back in contact with me i remember he said hes got all these movies but cant watch them. because his last one broke when he moved from the previous boarding home.
which i was living in one myself being told going to one by a bad case worker saying its a stepping stone to prove myself. im my own guardian and i did prove myself. ive been living happily in my own apt ever since october 1st 2007.
thats how i know my friend. he moved to a further away place before going to the one hes in now. buying him that vhs-dvd player didnt keep him happy. but i didnt know yet how depressed he was. like everyday from 4 weeks ago he calls me like 3 too 4 times a day. 5 if he gets lucky. but every phone call is about him being depressed and him having dreams about suicide. i keep telling him to hold on. i even did a titanic thing. i told him to promise me he would hang on. never let go. in person.
he keeps calling at 9am too. and i need more sleep.
the 2nd phone call ever he asked me to bring dvds and stuff. for the others and himself. what he requested since its a all male facility you can imagine what he asked of me. and i told him no! that stuff hurts a computer. i dont need to take my computer in the shop and they discover nasty things on it because you want something. he also wanted me to burn music on to my dvd audio ones. and i told him what he requests is against the law.
he stopped with that when i made it clear no im not going to do that. but now every phone call i get from him is depressing. i try being there for him. but thats not working. he has a sane mind. just like any guy on the block or you see outside. but with a major need of women, he cheated. he keeps cheating.
im also upset because a lot of his depression comes from a woman he cheated on and he claims he loves her but she has a daughter around my age! hes 27, im 24. i feel like the adult.
i dont know what to do. i already gave him so much advice but it doesnt stick. he needs to face his wrongs and move on. because he seemed to move on quickly when he had a g/f and just moved to the next. he stole two my g/f before too. hes lucky i didnt break the friendship early 2007.
i keep telling him to stop with the sadness. he needs to stop. a person can only take so much depression from someone else. 4 weeks of it is enough.
what would you do if me?
it could be worse. it could be where he couldnt get to see me at all because of a place further away. least i can see him where hes at now.
what should i do?
Answer: This may be the hard choice, but.... sometimes you have to cut your losses and think about yourself. It sounds like you've tried hard to help this person. If they can't come out of it themselves, they need medical help. If they won't get that, then it's not your fault and not your problem. All you can do is talk, listen, be there, offer to drive to doctor's appointments.... things like that. Whatever happens, make sure you don't lose sight of yourself and your sensibilities. It sounds like you've got yourself in a good place.

Will it work? I love her..?
I went on a cruise to the carribean for a week, on the fifth day I saw this gorgeous girl in the elevator so I checked her out, she looked 17 so being 14 myself I didnt try to flirt. But then about 5 min later I saw her again so I went over and talked and we ended up talking fir awhile. We went around the ship hanging with some friends and then it started getting dark and we went to the from of the ship. You have to jump over a nogo sign/wall to get to the front so we went up here and thats when I fist looked into her eyes really deeply and I just like froze, I knew thenthat she was going to be special to me. She smiled and it drove me wild. After that we flirted and we had fun and later that night we went to a party for 15 and up, so I couldnt get in and they caught me sneaking in, so she started crying how I was her boyfriend and shes gonna be all alone without me at the party, it was so sweet(: I gave her a hug and told her ide see her in a little while, so I went and hung with some other friends. She came back out 10 min later cuz she said it wasnt fun without me, so we sat and talked her me and our friend Dustin. She has such an amazing and wonderful personality I wanted to hold her close and kiss her but I couldnt bcuz Dustin was Always there lol so we walked her too her room and her dad came out at 1.30 haha 30 min after her curfew lol so she got in a little trouble and we agreed to meet The next day. The next day we hangout again and I cant remember when that day I kissed her first bcuz we kissed so many times by the night. (: by we walked around he ship from that moment onward basically together, she was always in my arms or holding my hand. That night i stil couldnt get into the partys so we took my 400$ battery powered iPod dock and had our own party dancing aroundthe ship. When nobody was looking were sneak a few kisses in the middle of dancing. So that night ended pefecly, when I took her back to her room I kissed her again and asked her to go icescating with me the next morning, she said yes so we went :D I had not fallen for the hour I skated alone while she ate breakfast, when she came I helped hr not fall for While and when she finally did fall I made sure she didnt fall hard but then j landed on top of her(: haha I think she pulls me down like that on purposee haha but her dad was washing so we couldnt kiss or anything, we spent the rest of the day together holding hands and everything it was amazing, except once when i kissed her her dad came around the corner at that exact moment so she got a talking too and I was told to respect his daughter, which I really do. So we partied again that night but with about an hour last of the last night I ended the party saying we were taking a break. So we went off alone and we went to the front if the ship and we did the titanic thing lol :) then we kissed for awhile and web she heard a noise we stopped, so I told her we had to get low and so she layed atop of me on one ofthe benches as we kissed and made out and it was just perfect. Later we walked around and said bye to people, I truly wouldv rather had more time to spend with her. So basically she made my cruise memorable and I think I fell in live with her, its been a few days now and she has not left my mind or my dreams once, and that night when I thought IDE never see her again I layer there and cried to myself. The same thing happened the next night wen I was home as well. We both went to the same Willet but were on opposite sides, she told me that while at the airport, she started balling her eyes out for hours because she thought she wouldnt see me again, and she couldnt stop. We both are stil talking and we both agree that we NEED to see eachother again but he fact is she lives in Cali and in live in newjersey. Im 14 shes 15. I wouldn do anything to see her again, and so would she for me, we already agree to visit eachother and go on a cruise together, but I dont know how well work it out. Do you think theres any hope that I will see her ever again? I love her but I havnt told her because things like that j say in person. I need her, like I dont know if you will under stand by even on he boat when I was with her I felt happier then I ever have before, anything was possible to me when I had her, she made me feel inclvincible and wonderful but even I she left for a moment I had a hole in my chest that burned and hurt and I couldnt stand to be without her. Do you think we can work it out?
Answer: Yes i think it will work.

Lee Iacocca has a very strong argument about Iraq, Bush, etc. Its an easy read. Agree/Disagree/Comment?::
Subject: Lee Iacocca speaks out Stay the course? Youve got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. Ill give you a sound Bite: Throw the bums out! You might think Im getting Senile, that Ive gone off my rocker, and maybe I Have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize This country anymore. The President of the United States is given a free pass to ignore the Constitution, tap our phones, and lead us to war on a Pack of lies. Congress responds to record deficits by Passing a huge tax cut for the wealthy (thanks, but I Dont need it). The most famous business leaders are Not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While Were fiddling in Iraq, the Middle East is burning and Nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is Waving pom-poms instead of asking hard questions. Thats not the promise of America my parents and yours Traveled across the ocean for. Ive had enough. How About you? Ill go a step further. You cant call yourself a Patriot if youre not outraged. This is a fight Im Ready and willing to have. My friends tell me to calm down. They say, "Lee, Youre eighty-two years old. Leave the rage to the Young people." Id love to speak to them as soon as I Can pry them away from their iPods for five seconds And get them to pay attention. Im going to speak up Because its my patriotic duty. I think people will Listen to me. They say I have a reputation as a Straight shooter. So Ill tell you how I see it, and its not pretty, but at least its real. Im hoping to Strike a nerve in those young folks who say they dont Vote because they dont trust politicians to represent Their interests. Hey, America, wake up. These guys Work for us. Who Are These Guys, Anyway? Why are we in this mess? How did we end up with this Crowd in Washington? Well, we voted for them, or at Least some of us did. But Ill tell you what we didnt Do. We didnt agree to suspend the Constitution. We Didnt agree to stop asking questions or demanding Answers. Some of us are sick and tired of people who Call free speech treason. Where I come from thats a Dictatorship, not a democracy. And dont tell me its all the fault of right-wing Republicans or liberal Democrats. Thats an Intellectually lazy argument, and its part of the Reason were in this stew. Were not just a nation of Factions. Were a people. We share common principles And ideals. And we rise and fall together. Where are the voices of leaders who can inspire us to Action and make us stand taller? What happened to the Strong and resolute party of Lincoln? What happened to The courageous, populist party of FDR and Truman? There was a time in this country when the voices of Great leaders lifted us up and made us want to do Better. Where have all the leaders gone? The Test of a Leader Ive never been Commander in Chief, but Ive been a CEO. I understand a few things about leadership at the Top. Ive figured out nine points, not ten (I dont Want people accusing me of thinking Im Moses). I call Them the "Nine Cs of Leadership." Theyre not fancy or Complicated. Just clear, obvious qualities that every True leader should have. We should look at how the Current administration stacks up. Like it or not, this Crew is going to be around until January 2009. Maybe We can learn something before we go to the polls in 2008. Then lets be sure we use the leadership test to Screen the candidates who say they want to run the Country. Its up to us to choose wisely. So, heres my C list: A leader has to show CURIOSITY. He has to listen to People outside of the "Yes, sir" crowd in his inner Circle. He has to read voraciously, because the world Is a big, complicated place. George W. Bush brags About never reading a newspaper. "I just scan the Headlines," he says. Am I hearing this right? Hes the President of the United States and he never reads a Newspaper? Thomas Jefferson once said, "Were it left To me to decide whether we should have a government Without newspapers, or newspapers without a Government, I should not hesitate for a moment to Prefer the latter." Bush disagrees. As long as he gets His daily hour in the gym, with Fox News piped through The sound system, hes ready to go. If a leader never steps outside his comfort zone to Hear different ideas, he grows stale. If he doesnt put his beliefs to the test, how does he know hes right? The inability to listen is a form of arrogance. It means either you think you already know it all, or you just dont care. Before the 2006 election, George Bush made a big point of saying he didnt listen to the polls. Yeah, thats what they all say when the polls stink. But maybe he should have listened, because 70 percent of the people were saying he was on the wrong track. It took a "thumping" on election day to wake him up, but even then you got the feeling he wasnt listening so much as he was calculating how to do a better job of convincing everyone he was right. A leader has to be CREATIVE, go out on a limb, be willing to try something different. You know, think outside the box. George Bush prides himself on never changing, even as the world around him is spinning out of control. God forbid someone should accuse him of flip-flopping. Theres a disturbingly messianic fervor to his certainty. Senator Joe Biden recalled a conversation he had with Bush a few months after our troops marched into Baghdad. Joe was in the Oval Office outlining his concerns to the President the explosive mix of Shiite and Sunni, the disbanded Iraqi army, the problems securing the oil fields. "The President was serene," Joe recalled. "He told me he was sure that we were on the right course and that all would be well. Mr. President, I finally said, how can you be so sure when you dont yet know all the facts?" Bush then reached over and put a steadying hand on Joes shoulder. "My instincts," he said. "My instincts." Joe was flabbergasted. He told Bush, "Mr. President, your instincts arent good enough." Joe Biden sure didnt think the matter was settled. And, as we all know now, it wasnt. Leadership is all about managing change whether youre leading a company or leading a country. Things change, and you get creative. You adapt. Maybe Bush was absent the day they covered that at Harvard Business School. A leader has to COMMUNICATE. Im not talking about running off at the mouth or spouting sound bites. Im talking about facing reality and telling the truth. Nobody in the current administration seems to know how to talk straight anymore. Instead, they spend most of their time trying to convince us that things are not really as bad as they seem. I dont know if its denial or dishonesty, but it can start to drive you crazy after a while. Communication has to start with telling the truth, even when its painful. The war in Iraq has been, among other things, a grand failure of communication. Bush is like the boy who didnt cry wolf when the wolf was at the door. After years of being told that all is well, even as the casualties and chaos mount, weve stopped listening to him. A leader has to be a person of CHARACTER. That means knowing the difference between right and wrong and having the guts to do the right thing. Abraham Lincoln once said, "If you want to test a mans character, give him power." George Bush has a lot of power. What does it say about his character? Bush has shown a willingness to take bold action on the world stage because he has the power, but he shows little regard for the grievous consequences. He has sent our troops (not to mention hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi citizens) to their deaths, for what? To build our oil reserves? To avenge his daddy because Saddam Hussein once tried to have him killed? To show his daddy hes tougher? The motivations behind the war in Iraq are questionable, and the execution of the war has been a disaster. A man of character does not ask a single soldier to die for a failed policy. A leader must have COURAGE. Im talking about balls. (That even goes for female leaders.) Swagger isnt courage. Tough talk isnt courage. George Bush comes from a blue-blooded Connecticut family, but he likes to talk like a cowboy. You know, My gun is bigger than your gun. Courage in the twenty-first century doesnt mean posturing and bravado. Courage is a commitment to sit down at the negotiating table and talk. If youre a politician, courage means taking a position even when you know it will cost you votes. Bush cant even make a public appearance unless the audience has been handpicked and sanitized. He did a series of so-called town hall meetings last year, in auditoriums packed with his most devoted fans. The questions were all softballs. To be a leader youve got to have CONVICTION, fire in your belly. Youve got to have passion. Youve got to really want to get omething done. How do you measure fire in the belly? Bush has set the all-time record for number of vacation days taken by a U.S. President, four hundred and counting. Hed rather clear brush on his ranch than immerse himself in the business of governing. He even told an interviewer that the high point of his presidency so far was catching a seven-and-a-half-pound perch in his hand-stocked lake. Its no better on Capitol Hill. Congress was in session only ninety-seven days in 2006. Thats eleven days less than the record set in 1948, when President Harry Truman coined the term do-nothing Congress. Most people would expect to be fired if they worked so little and had nothing to show for it. But Congress managed to find the time to vote itself a raise. Now, thats not leadership. A leader should have CHARISMA. Im not talking about being flashy. Charisma is the quality that makes people want to follow you. Its the ability to inspire. People follow a leader because they trust him. Thats my definition of charisma. Maybe George Bush is a great guy to hang out with at a barbecue or a ball game. But put him at a global summit where the future of our planet is at stake, and he doesnt look very presidential. Those frat-boy pranks and the kidding around he enjoys so much dont go over that well with world leaders. Just ask German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who received an unwelcome shoulder massage from our President at a G-8 Summit. When he came up behind her and started squeezing, I thought she was going to go right through the roof. A leader has to be COMPETENT. That seems obvious, doesnt it? Youve got to know what youre doing. More important than that, youve got to surround yourself with people who know what theyre doing. Bush brags about being our first MBA President. Does that make him competent? Well, lets see. Thanks to our first MBA President, weve got the largest deficit in history, Social Security is on life support, and weve run up a half-a-trillion-dollar price tag (so far) in Iraq. And thats just for starters. A leader has to be a problem solver, and the biggest problems we face as a nation seem to be on the back burner. You cant be a leader if you dont have COMMON SENSE. I call this Charlie Beachams rule. When I was a young guy just starting out in the car business, one of my first jobs was as Fords zone manager in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. My boss was a guy named Charlie Beacham, who was the East Coast regional manager. Charlie was a big Southerner, with a warm drawl, a huge smile, and a core of steel. Charlie used to tell me, "Remember, Lee, the only thing youve got going for you as a human being is your ability to reason and your common sense. If you dont know a dip of horseshit from a dip of vanilla ice cream, youll never make it." George Bush doesnt have common sense. He just has a lot of sound bites. You know, Mr.theyll-welcome-us-as-liber... e-mission-accomplished Bush. Former President Bill Clinton once said, "I grew up in an alcoholic home. I spent half my childhood trying to get into the reality-based world and I like it here." I think our current President should visit the real world once in a while. The Biggest C is Crisis Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. Its easy to sit there with your feet up on the desk and talk theory. Or send someone elses kids off to war when youve never seen a battlefield yourself. Its another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down. On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. Where was George Bush? He was reading a story about a pet goat to kids in Florida when he heard about the attacks. He kept sitting there for twenty minutes with a baffled look on his face. Its all on tape. You can see it for yourself. Then, instead of taking the quickest route back to Washington and immediately going on the air to reassure the panicked people of this country, he decided it wasnt safe to return to the White House. He basically went into hiding for the day and he told Vice President Dick Cheney to stay put in his bunker. We were all frozen in front of our TVs, scared out of our wits, waiting for our leaders to tell us that we were going to be okay, and there was nobody home. It took Bush a couple of days to get his bearings and devise the right photo op at Ground Zero. That was George Bushs moment of truth, and he was paralyzed. And what did he do when hed regained his composure? He led us down the road to Iraq, a road his own father had considered disastrous when he was President. But Bush didnt listen to Daddy. He listened to a higher father. He prides himself on being faith based, not reality based. If that doesnt scare the crap out of you, I dont know what will. A Hell of a Mess So heres where we stand. Were immersed in a bloody war with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving. Were running the biggest deficit in the history of the country. Were losing the manufacturing edge to Asia, while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs. Gas prices are skyrocketing, and nobody in power has a coherent energy policy. Our schools are in trouble. Our borders are like sieves. The middle class is being squeezed every which way. These are times that cry out for leadership. But when you look around, youve got to ask: "Where have all the leaders gone?" Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, competence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point. Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo? Weve spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened. Name me one leader who emerged from the crisis of Hurricane Katrina. Congress has yet to spend a single day evaluating the response to the hurricane, or demanding accountability for the decisions that were made in the crucial hours after the storm. Everyones hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping it doesnt happen again. Now, thats just crazy. Storms happen. Deal with it. Make a plan. Figure out what youre going to do the next time. Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when "the Big Three" referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, what are we going to do about it? Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry. I have news for the gang in Congress. We didnt elect you to sit on your asses and do nothing and remain silent while our democracy is being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bobblehead on Fox News will call them a name? Give me a break. Why dont you guys show some spine for a change? Had Enough? Hey, Im not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. Im trying to light a fire. Im speaking out because I have hope. I believe in America. In my lifetime Ive had the privilege of living through some of Americas greatest moments. Ive also experienced some of our worst crises, the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War, the 1970s oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years culminating with 9/11. If Ive learned one thing, its this: You dont get anywhere by standing on the sidelines waiting for somebody else to take action. Whether its building a better car or building a better future for our children, we all have a role to play. Thats the challenge Im raising in this book. Its a call to action for people who, like me, believe in America. Its not too late, but its getting pretty close. So lets shake off the horseshit and go to work. Lets tell em all weve had enough.

Answer: I agree with almost everything he wrote, except for the part about voting. We the people did not vote for Bush. The Supreme Court did. He lost the popular vote, the electoral vote was in question. I am amazed everyday by the number of people who are not horrified by this administration and who are willing to sit by quietly while our civil liberties are ripped from us one by one. Instead of joining together to have these crooks removed from office, we allow them to seperate us further by distracting us with lesser arguments about trivial issues, such as gay marriage, flag burning, etc... WAKE UP PEOPLE. Do you not realize that these are diversions. We are involved in a war we cannot win. We don't even know who we are fighting. Iraq was not a "terrorist harboring nation". Insurgents and terrorists are not unilateral. There is a huge difference. If you aren't aware of this then you need to educate yourselves. Fast. I believe Lee is correct. We need a call to action now. 2009 is a long ways away.

Why dont I cry at sad movies?
Im a 19 year old girl. Ive seen all the typical sad movies (mainly Titanic and the Notebook). I thought they were sad, but I didnt cry about it. Is this abnormal? My friends joke about me being heartless. Its not like I didnt care about what happened in the movie, I just dont cry easily. The only things that Ive almost cried over were Lilo and Stitch (Lilo was about to be taken away by social services), a book called Aimee (read and youll know why) and certain scenes from vampire diaries. Am I just not emotional enough? I hate crying in front of people and feel awkward when I see people cry. I hate it when my mom tries to comfort me when I cry (idk why), yet its okay when my dad tries. Idk, is there something wrong with me?
Answer: hi :) there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. everyone is different and you are one of those millions of people that dont cry easily. nothing everyone expresses sadness in crying. or maybe its just because you have a strong character.

Well, I had one last night.
It was Billie Joe most of it.
So me and my friend Bryony are walking down the street, She says "Look its Billie Joe!"
(Its 1994 Billie with his short curly blonde hair) Hes on is bike lol. We run over to him but then he rides off. We catch up with him and he says "Ill meet you at the library." Then the dream ended.
Ive had this kinda dirty dream to...
Ill tell you about..lol
Green Day and MCR were in my room having a party.
MCR and Mike left. So it was just me,Billie, and Tre`.
Tre` was my best friend and me and Billie just met. We were just being stupid having a laugh and stuff. Tre went to sleep lol. Billie Joe said he loved me after Tre went asleep lol. (He didnt meet 80 Yet) Then I said I loved him to. Then things got a dirty.... VERY dirty... lol.
I also had a dream me and several other people were on a ship, and we were being attacked by terrorists who were bombing the ship. It was really scary. Then it was kind of like the Titanic. The ship all of a sudden stood up straight and I was hanging onto the front of the boat to keep from falling down. And then all of a sudden Billie appears out of nowhere next to me, hanging onto the boat, and he just kind of looks at me for a minute then hes like, "Dont I know you from somewhere?" And then I was like, "No, not really but I know you." And then he said, "Well Im gonna jump ok?" and then Im like, "No!" and hes like, "Fine, you jump with me." And then I was like, "Ok." So we both grabbed each others hand and then hes like, "You ready? 1...2...3..let go!" and then we both let go and slowly fell....and fell...and fell...in slow motion. We just kind of disappeared into this mist. 0__0 And then I woke up.
I sound like a tennie bopper O_0
Answer: I had a dream I kissed Billie Joe Armstrong, I definitely felt sparks :')
