I'm okay, I guess. ^_^ It's been kind of the same for me - I've been less active than usual.

Yes it does indeed.
I feel kind of bad for not being on Kidpub that much. I just feel like a horrible person, like I'm using you guys or something. >.>

You're not a horrible person just for not being on KP! D: Sometimes people just get busy. There's nothing wrong with it.

I know of a really great website that allows people to vent. It's called Penzu, and it's basically a cyber journal. It's completely private and, for extra security, you can make a password and lock your journals. Joining is fast and easy, plus you don't have to pay anything. I've had an account there since late December of last year and it's worked great. Whenever I had a problem and couldn't find the right person to talk to, I'd log on to Penzu and write about everything on my mind. It's a great site to go to if you need a private place to pour out all of your emotions. Link: https://penzu.com/p

You don't get advice there, do you?

What I'm trying to say is that art is art, and can reach very deeply into the things that disturb people the most in order to access the emotions that art is supposed to stir up in people. Happiness, loneliness, revulsion, horror... the purpose of any art is to generate emotion in the viewer/reader, doesn't matter which one. Emotion is what makes art real, whether it's the happiness or the horror that brings it from the page and into reality. It ranges from Stephen King to Edgar Allen Poe to Homer to Max Ernst, to pop artists and photographers who work for big advertising/modelling companies, aiming to stir up insecurity in the viewers so they buy a product to feel whole.

And way over here on this other hand that is miles and miles away from the first hand, we have KidPub.

Please understand I am CERTAINLY not trying to say we should start posting horrific things on KidPub. o_O I want to clarify to any future readers of my first post that that was NOT what I was trying to say.

XD I was just trying to add on to your post...of course we wouldn't post things like that on KP.

Not last summer. She wasn't a newbie then.

We're not trying to act sophisticated, it's just Alexa claiming that she's sophisticated.

It was interesting. Religion, politics, abortion, and homeschooling.

Trust me, the summer of 2011 was much worse. XD

It doesn't seem like it, but that seems like a very good alternative.

Thanks. :3
Thank you for talking to me and caring.
Continue being awesome. :^)

No, but it's a great way to pour out what you're feeling without anybody reading it... Unless you show someone, of course. ;)
