Is it just me....

Or does it seem like everyone's lives seem to be falling apart? I hope that this is just a passing dark cloud. I also hope that all of you who are going through tough moments are okay and getting through it. We're all here for you. At the moment my life isn't in the total crapper but that could all change in the space of one fight or one comment so....yeah, but I've been there. I've been depressed but I usually(but not always) can pull myself out of it before it gets too bad. Music tends to help A LOT. Especially music I can relate too. If I'm in a bad mood sometimes all it takes is Family Guy, God I love that show it's exactly my kind of show sarcastic crude humour. Hehe....It's also awkward to watch with my mom as she finds it "messed up" lol. Anyways, I'm off the subject now. I just honestly hope everybody's days get better :) I truly deeply mean that :)

I do think people are less likely to post stuff when much bigger, heavier stuff is happening. But yeah, I'm all for people posting trivial thing, frivolity. We can't make this site into a dirge.

Personally, I'm doing great.

I became debt-free this week. I'm making great progress on the fourth draft of my novel. My workout/diet are going great and clothes are getting looser. My job just extended my contract through June ($$$$$). U2 has a new CD coming out. Slumdog should win best picture tomorrow.

Lots of great stuff.

Well, I'm glad to hear that you're doing great :D :D

Good job on the working out/dieting. I wish I could say I was sticking to the workout plan I set in motion a week or two ago but I'm having trouble getting motivated to go down into the kinda cold basement and work out :P

And that's awesome about the novel and making some more Moola $$$. Maybe this is YOUR year :P

And I'm glad you agree that people should be able to post frivolous things cause I'm guilty of that on many counts. Especially when nothing "interesting" is happening in my life.

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things. Some shall be pardoned, some punished. Never was a story of more regret than this of Juliet and her fair Juliet.

Well, I think it's just

Well, I think it's just people tend to post about negative things more anyway. If we're doing okay or reasonably smoothly in life we USUALLY won't write a post/journal about that...

So it gives the effect of making everyone seem so extremely downbuzzed, even in reality it might not be that bad.

EDIT: Uh, Jeff bet me to it... took me too long to phrase it properly lol

Ha ha...Jeff beat you to it, lol. :P

But yes I agree with the two of you.

Agreed with the fellow

Agreed with the fellow commenters :]
But, to be honest, it does seem like everyone is having a terrible time. And it probably is becuase they're posting about all the negative stuff, but you can't help but wonder. It's that stupid recession, isn't it?! Putting pessimistic thoughts in everybodys heads. Tut tut tut!!

It does seem like more

It does seem like more people on Oasis have been going through crises lately. I've been struggling some myself — I just don't usually post about it. (I'm OK now — nobody freak!) :-)

I think I'm going to go revive the "happy thoughts" forum from last year... we need it :-)

to second what you said

no complants about life here
Mothers, tell your children: be quick, you must be strong. Life is full of wonder, love is never wrong. Remember how they taught you, how much of it was fear. Refuse to hand it down - the legacy stops here. ~Melissa Etheridge, "Silent Legacy," Yes I A
