What would u do if u saw a woman being battered?

Sat, 05/29/2010 - 22:51 -- Birdie

Well, I can guess what u ladies would do.

But here's how the rest of the world reacts. Not that this is new knowledge to anyone- I just believe this should get spread around the internet. Like wildfire. Kudos to ABC for covering a topic that most of the world ignores.

The videos are intense to watch and can be a trigger- so be prepared.

This is my answer to wallowing, reading facebook accounts of people going on marvelous vacations with their loved ones. I am feeling incredibly trapped and have decided to get proactive about it, and seek out others who, like me, might feel a bit at a loss when they read about some old high school friend who is lounging around on Laguna Beach with her girlfriends while her incredibly successful, handsome and caring husband worries about taking care of the kids for her.

Sweet!

Lol- I read vkitty's post AFTER posting this! Must be some kind of an affirmation day, hehe. I'm resisting the urge to call myself Stuart Smalley here, because I'm so fucking serious right now. And psyched. Going to ride the wave I'm feeling right now, and I fully expect it to carry me through the summer. Did a lot of thinking about my life this past week, my family....

Movie suggestions for single parents?

Tue, 05/18/2010 - 19:27 -- Birdie

I need some inspiration lately. Feeling unwanted and alone, because I am a single mother pursuing a degree- aka folks might want to sleep with me but not BE with me- I have this chance to travel right now and I can't- some movies about single parents with no family support who have their kids the majority of the time and still have good lives, love, and dreams work out for them would be most appreciated right now.

If you ever need a poet.....

Try Edna St. Vincent Millay!

This is a great one from Ms. Millay......

The Penitent

I HAD a little Sorrow,
Born of a little Sin,
I found a room all damp with gloom
And shut us all within;
And, "Little Sorrow, weep," said I,
"And, Little Sin, pray God to Die,
And I upon the floor will lie
And think how bad I've been!"
