Message Boards- friend or foe

I am part of a great message board where I have met some great and some not so great women. For some I use the term "woman" loosely. After having my first child I was extremely lonely. None of my friends had kids and were all still in the single partying life. I had no one to talk to or relate to. Seriously I think my friends were tired of me wondering out loud about the color and consistency of my babies poops. So online I went (isn't the internet wonderful) and found a local message board to meet some new people to share this crazy journey called motherhood with. So four years and like 2 zillion boards later I am hooked. I have found some of my best friends (and worst enemies) on these boards. Not only have the boards taught me more about raising my child, it has brought me confidence and lifelong friendships.
Are message boards for everyone? Nope. Some people cannot handle boards. They cannot keep up, handle disagreements, or think they are "just message boards" Well to me they are not just message boards. For those of us truly invested into the boards the women on them become like family to us. Sometimes the boards can be our lifelines. You can go there and be yourself, let your boobs hang low and vent. You can go there at all hours of the night or day and find someone to talk to. You know when you sign on that you will find something to read or relate to. Someone will be looking for a hug or piece of advice.
A message board is worth what you put into it. If you come to the board with the mentality that it is just a board then what you will walk away with is just a board. If you come to it looking for friendships you will find just that and sometimes more. A board is not physical in the sense that it can control you. You have control over the board, and your decision and actions on the board, therefor you cannot and should not blame the board for your problems in life.
So are message boards friends or foes? I would have to say neither. Message boards are the gateway to friends or foe. They can be positive or negative depending on what you put into and take out of them.

Killing me

So I am now enrolled full time as a student at the local community college. I *think* I am going to get a degree in Social Work but who knows. I mean I have been going to college for so long and I change my mind all the time. I have ALWAYS wanted to be a teacher but there is such a shortage of jobs in that profession that it almost seems pointless in becoming one. So anyway I am taking an intro to sociology class taught by a man who thinks he is a GOD because his title is Dr. A doctor of what I don't know but I may need to see one because he is a pain in my ass. He has given us so much work for this week. Um hello this is an intro class!! Seriously you would think that it was a 300 level course or something. We are supposed to read 3 chapters this week, take 3 quizzes, and answer these stupid thought provoking (supposedly) questions, which are completely homogay. I hate this professor, however the subject matter is awesome. Why is he so lame though? Luckily I tend to work ahead so I only have one chapter left to read and I have answered some of his super stupid questions. Of course to top off all the work in his class I have 3 others as well, with nowhere near as much work. Of course I will have the last laugh when I post how much he sucks on at the end of the semester. Yeah that will show him.

I love it

I love it when people decide to delete you from Myspace. Seriously is this not the most high school-ish act there is? Especially when you have never done anything to them. I have always hated the guilt by association rule. I for one have never been one to say well you are friends with so and so therefore I cannot associate with you. I mean come on, judge much? If you are going to delete people then have the balls to message them and tell them why. Do not hide behind the screen. There are people on my page that I have never talked to on myspace and yet I would never delete them. I get annoyed by people who post gay ass bulletins but I CHOOSE not to read the bulletin. I guess self control in the key word here. Shit if I were to delete people off my page that I have disagreements with then I would have no one to talk to on there. Disagreements are part of life. They make the world go round. People who cannot handle disagreements need to live in a bubble where their tender little feelers can't be bruised.
