At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.


-Noisy Eaters.
-Random people who sit beside you (on a bus or at a sporting event) when there are other open seats...
-People who use speakerphone in public places.
-People who interrupt.
-When you open a DVD case, and it's empty... or a different disc is inside!
-When I can't find the remote.
-The kind of ice that turns into a giant block when you pour your drink into it.
-When you bite into candy, and it's a different flavor than you thought...
-People reading over my shoulder.
-When people put their hands in my food!
-People who always try to 'one up' you by lying and trying to tell a cooler story than you... even if it's something totally lame.
-People who mumble.
-When people put their feet on the back of my seat or kick my chair at the movie theater.
-When you go with someone to watch a new movie and the other person keeps asking you questions like you're magically suppose to know.
-When I go to my room, and the nanosecond I sit down, my dad calls my name!!!


Can anyone relate? What are some of your pet peeves?

I was just talking in general. Doesn't mean I've had any of the things I was talking about. I don't have to have those things in order to know my pet peeves. I mean, I could've gone to maybe a friends house who had it. You just don't know, so don't point stuff out. I was reffering to general annoyances.

I am not saying your life is perfect, but it seems like a lot of children living right now can't count on having food every day, haven't had candy, don't know what a television is, etc.

Uhm, you don't even know me, so how would you know if I've led a "very priveledged life"?! You don't know anything about me and you happen to be VERY wrong.

This author has led a very priveledged life.  She is used to good food, kind people and lots of entertainment.  Why is she whining?
