EVERYONE HAS ISSUES.
Choose 5 of the opinion prompts below. There are suggestions after some of the prompts. Please do not feel that you have to discuss all of the suggestions; you don't have to address any of them if that's your prerogative. They are there simply to provoke thought.
Pick a topic, not listed above, about which you feel strongly. Tell us your opinion on it, and why you feel so strongly about it.
Global Warming. To be blunt, it scares the living shieettt out of me. And people dont care. No, it isnt a fairytale- Antartica is melting, polar bears are drowning, sea levels are rising, and so on. Where I live in Illinois, we had the warmest winter recorded, and thats not just random, thats global warming. Dont people understand? Florida, parts of Cali, Hawaii, and little islands in Asia will be covered in water. We're talking billions of people drowning. Okay, turn your lights off when you leave the room. That wont help much. Political leaders need to pay more attention to whats going on in the world, before its too late. We cant keep holding things off until their urgent. We need to start now while it's still reversible. I may sound like a treehugger, but this is BIG.
Now, tell us one topic that you wish people would simply stop talking about and let us know why:
Myspace. I WONT COMMENT YOUR NEW PICTURE. You have 50 comments already.
FLEX THAT IMAGINATION MUSCLE!

Well, here's a poem I wrote a year ago. Its kinda corny, but whatevaaa.
I can no longer keep inside
These feelings ive been trying to hide
This increasing pain piercing my heart
Cant you see im falling apart?
Its you that I once deeply adored
But I dont want to love you anymore
You throw away feelings like its an art
Cant you see youve broken my heart?
All of our memories fade
Broken are all of the promises made
Every night I lay here crying
Cant you see i'm slowly dying?
Countless hours wondering where you were
To find out that youre once again with her
I get so sick of your denying
Cant you see I know youre lying?
Im afraid if I keep stalling
Back in love id be falling
I will for the last time walk out your door
Cant you see you cant do this anymore?
THE BEGINNING OF THE END.
Where/from whom did you hear about us? Searching livejournal for good rating communities.
The community name is Not So Ordinary. So, tell us what makes you not so ordinary: Well, the biggest thing: I dont love Myspace. I find it sickening when girls follow stupid trends, like getting skunk-like hair, ugly fake extensions and eyelashes that look like a clump of dirt. I dont say I like things to get accepted. I dont take shit from people to keep the peace. There is no peace if their talking shit. Im not extroverted, but I dont keep what I believe silent. I'm willing to make a change.
Why do you want to join this community? I think this is one of the greater communities out there, it sends out a good message :) unlike vanity communities.
Any last words? im eating bacon pizza.
