The title may seem odd but its relavent. We are like old cars with new paint jobs. Have you ever seen an old car in a junkyard? If you were to take that car to a paint shop, and give it a new paint job it would look brand new right? Even though it has a new paint job on it; that job didnt take care of what's on the inside of the car. On the inside of the newly painted car is still that same old rust and dirt. So many of us put on paint everyday. Im not talking about makeup or anything like that. When was the last time you were truly and openly honest with someone about how your doing? Most of us when asked,"How are you?" say Im good, or Im fine; but really on the inside your hurting. When we're hurting we tend to try and hide it or bury it deep inside and we put on that paint and pretend that everythings going okay. Like the old car, this paint doesnt fix or get rid of the rust and dirt thats on the inside. That rust and dirt represent, our everyday situations.
At school we had a career fair and college fair and they had people from the marines and the national guard come to speak to us along with other careers and colleges. Well I've always really wanted to serve my country, I just didnt know how to. Now I feel like im supposed to go into the national guard. The only thing is the commitment. I have issues with commiting to things. Does anyone have any advice? Any and All advice is appreciated:)

Hey guys, I really need some prayer. I have finals next week, my best friend is in a really dark place in her life right now and I want to help her but Im still struggling with the cutting so its kind of hard to cause I dont want to seem like a hypracrite(sp). My mom is sick and we have no idea what it is but deep down in side I honestly think its cancer and I really hate saying that cause I dont want to clam that over her body. On top of all that Im starting to struggle with my faith again and I hate it but I dont know how to change it. If youve ever listened to Never Surrender and Monster by Skillet you know how I feel. So if you please would just pray that God will watch over my family and me. And just let his healing rain pour down

I've been praying about this for 6 months now,and I feel like im supposed to do this. Today we got a english project that requires a webpage. Me and a friend asked the teacher if we could keep it even after the project is over he said yes. Then me and my friend got on the subject of an organization. The organization is for people who are struggling with cutting, alcohol, and drugsor just need to talk about stuff thats their struggling with. It's kinda like a support group. But we need sponsors. I talked to my pastor about it and were gonna talk more in depth about it next sunday since I wont be at church this Sunday. So if any of yall know anyone that would like to help please tell them. We would really like to get this thing kicked off to a great start.

Ok, so today I had to play mechanic & had to help my dad change the brakes on my moms car. It was so digusting, I think Rebecca is CRAZY!!! You get all dirty & smell & you get dust & dirt in your eyes. I can't see how anyone would want to do that for a living. It's also to much to learn, my dad was blurting out tools he needed like a brake presser pad(or something like that), wrench, lutter's(something like that), compresser, & abunch of other things. Im like what in world is that? Well I guess people like getting dirty & learning big words. All I know is I'll trade places with Rebecca anytime. Id rather play guitar than fix dirty cars. I still have dirt & oil & grease on my hands. It WONT come of. I know that I sound like a baby, I don't care it ws nasty & yuo wont ever see me do that for a living or probably do it again unless its only holding a light that dont have dirt & grease on it. So yeah & the whole time Im like Rebecca is a crazy nut. I still love her though lol!!!!
So I have an account on Teenink & they have a website & a magazine were your writing & art can get published. I was on there checking my replies on the forum & something told me to write a review on Barlowgirl. So I wrote the review & submitted it & hopefully it gets accepted & published in the mag or at least on the site. I don't know what told me to do it but I listened. Don't worry it's a good review
i am on a national swim team, i have private singing lesson since i was 10, in a band, the one thing i don't like about barlow girl is that they don't come on tour in Canada so i will never see them live.
