If you wonder where I've gone, let me tell you the story of a client* that I've worked with, it may tell you a bit about why I've gone away.

As I've reported before, I'm a counselor of sorts. This kid is an adolescent boy who has witnessed a lot of domestic violence and has experienced bullying a lot in his life. The family knew he was depressed, and he would never do anything he was supposed to. He finally got a computer this year and has learned all about the internet. His dad keeps telling me that he's worried that his kid is using the computer too much and isn't spending time with his sisters at home. Well, the boy has always avoided all issues in his life. Didn't want to see his dad beat up his mom, so he stayed in his room and read books. Didn't want to see his sisters fight all the time, so he watched tv and didn't pay a single moment's notice to what was going around. So for him to be on the computer now on Minecraft and Five Nights at Freddy's or whatnot, it makes sense.  I told his dad this, and he got even more angry and it didn't help their relationship any more. One day I asked the boy "What makes you wake up in the morning?" - he told me "I wake up for the little things in life". It didn't seem like there was an overarching moment or theme for him - and it made it tougher for me to relate anything for him, because there was nothing ever to strive for. It reminded me of those mornings when I'd wake up to set my nominations or go to rookies to spam post. Back then, I woke up for the little things as well, because getting HoH meant everything and real life was on hold. Later on, my client actually told me that he only wakes up for the little things because he never learned how to be inside the world, because the world has always been dangerous. He never learned safety - he had cyberbullies, real bullies, a mom that would insult his looks, a dad that made him fear his family's safety, and sisters that would never give him a peaceful home. He said he would rather let everything pass him by, because nothing else was worth it. Fast forward to today and he now wakes up in the morning for friends and wanting to have a good job and family in the future and he actually smiles now.

So the moral of the story is that I don't stick around here, because it took me a whole year to write this story and I wasted away seven months writing my personal X Factor blog (ask TheGreatXL - he's my co-editor), and I begged on the streets because I quit my job to pursue my dreams and stalk Boyonce all week long, even though I got so many haters, and they also stole all my credit card information so now I'm mad broke. I also got into the percocet trade and became a drug mule to make ends meet. So for me, I wake up in the morning to get celebrities and the general public to notice me, because their attention is worth more than anything else in the world - even more than my financial safety.

So never forget Sarah Smith, ya'll. Never had a dream come true. Go see her at Same Difference Pop Academy - now at Haven Holiday Resorts!

aww that story :} i'm glad that your client has progressed & is doing well! i can't imagine going through half of what he has. for many, this site has served as an escape from the outside world & while it may serve it's purpose for a time being, it's nice to be able to back away from it and fully live & appreciate life.

happy 7 years on the site! i believe you're the longest existing user :p
