By A Friend on January 19, 2019 / 303 views

By A Friend on January 19, 2019 / 303 views

So, this happened just few minutes ago. I'm currently visiting Rome and had to go somewhere by metro. Unfortunately, I didn't realise that the machine doesn't take notes or cards, and I didn't have any change on my. So, I asked a British couple passing by if they could split a 10. They literally took 5 minutes to scrap whatever change they had to pay for my ticket. If you guys are...

I am a 27 year old trying to go back to college after a long break from any formal schooling. I am taking a college algebra class and struggling to keep up. I sit behind a young man who upon first glance looks like a thug or overall someone I would never think would be able to help me learn algebra. I was dead wrong. Today in class we were learning linear regression which requires a lot of specific inputs on a...

Homeless Guy Gave Me What He Could

By A Friend on January 19, 2019 / 231 views

By A Friend on January 19, 2019 / 231 views

I gave a young homeless guy a couple of quid in Glasgow. I don't normally give money but it was just what I had in my pocket and there was something about this dude that just looked sad. Got chatting for a wee while and he told me about his days and nights - someone had soaked his sleeping bag on purpose and he'd spent the morning trying to dry it under the hand-dryer in...

By Ellie on January 19, 2019 / 200 views

By Ellie on January 19, 2019 / 200 views

My boss was shadowing me at the register on my first day, and things were going okay but I was pretty nervous with her watching over my shoulder. Midway through my shift a customer comes up and recognises me from my previous job. I can’t remember her for the life of me, so I have no idea if our previous interaction(s) had been good, bad, or other. Lucky me, though, because she launches into a...

By A Friend on January 18, 2019 / 412 views

By A Friend on January 18, 2019 / 412 views

I hope you find it in you to forgive yourself for not having known how to cope with the world better. For being selfish, for hurting others while you were hurting. For making rash decisions because of temporary feelings that left permanent consequences. For subconsciously putting yourself through hard times because you thought you deserved it. For not giving your 100% in everything you did. For not having...

After a failed marriage, the loss of all of my friends, depression, opioid, sleeping pill, and alcohol addiction, not working for four years, and sending out over 200 resumes in the last five months - - today I got a $60,000/year job in my field of a study. Today is a good day. I always make a wish when the clock strikes 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44, 5:55, or 11:11. I alternate...

I live in an area that recently got a good amount of snow. Here I am, sitting on my couch watching YouTube when I get a knock on my door. Expecting an Amazon package, I look out the window but I don’t see a delivery vehicle. I’m not dressed to answer the door so I scramble to get dressed and answer the door. Standing outside is a man with a heavy coat, gloves, and a hat and he asks me...

By Rudolph Valentino on January 09, 2019 / 1,049 views

I remember ripping the bag open so badly, and so wrong, and not wanting to get caught by my mother, or my siblings. Whoever did that to the cereal bags in my home, didn't stop hearing that they ruined it, till the bag was finished. Some fell to the ground, kitchen sink, our dogs even sometimes got lucky with a few pieces of cereal in their bowls. Just when you think all that mess is done, you...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on January 07, 2019 / 1,416 views

Whoosh! A snowball zoomed past my head. I bent over a snowdrift and packed one myself to throw back as quickly as I could. I stood up and took aim. Wham! Another snowball crashed into my skull sending me stumbling into the snowdrift. I could feel my feet slipping on the ice beneath them and suddenly found myself buried face first in the wet, heavy snow. It was a mid-winter's day. My Mom had...

I'm Doing It

By MJ on January 05, 2019 / 1,809 views

By MJ on January 05, 2019 / 1,809 views

Three years ago, my ex-husband threw me out of our home with nothing but a duffle bag with a change of clothes and a plane ticket to my home state. His reasoning was because I was mentally ill and he was "tired of trying to fix me". I was homeless for a year before I found a home in a group home for the mentally ill. I spent a year and a half there before I moved into a supervised apartment. In...

I lost my husband just over 2 years ago. He was older than me but gave me security and love for my two young children, after I had been through a horrendous marriage and divorce. We bought a thatched cottage, something we discovered we both had dreamt of. The name of the cottage was Christopher Robin, not after "Winnie the Pooh". We lived there for 25 years...

My family lives in Las Vegas, where I can barely remember the last time it snowed. We also didn't get the names of the men who helped us. In my parents BMW (my mom got a great deal on it) we had been driving to Albuquerque, New Mexico from Texas after a week of visiting family and friends after 15 years of not seeing them. On the road, we had begun to notice snow flurries and soon, as we got...

Beep! Beep! Beep! I rolled over and turned off my alarm clock. It was still dark outside so I felt my way to the wall switch and turned on the light. I got dressed quickly because I knew both of my dogs would be eager to get outside for their morning walk. I reached over to grab a coat and stopped. It was technically still Fall but the weather here in the Appalachian mountains of my home didn't follow a...
