"Problems" as in problems of any kind, pertaining to any situation.

At some time in the past you were a child and thus a problem to someone else.

Your problem at the present time is that you're over-analyizing the poem. Might I suggest that you simply take it at face value?


May 7, 2010
lol I just made the traslation...sorry about that(:

Mar 25, 2010
Hi, thanks for reading my posts, and thanks for making me realize of my mistake in the part5 of my story :) I was a little sleepy so i didn't pay attention to it :)

I hope you may continue the Chain story ;)

Mar 8, 2010
hahaha. the only clue I'll give you is the KEYBOARD

Feb 4, 2010
Thanks haha, glad to be writing again.

Have you even read dibs in search of self?

Hey man, thanks for the comment--I appreciate it. I guess they are some interesting questions. I'm not sure if I still feel that way or not, but I was searching when I wrote the poem, for sure. I think sometimes we really do need to have faith, and not question it, however. we'll see, right? haha.

Aug 2, 2009
yeah, I had a pretty good time. Luckily the corndog thing was somebody else though

Aug 1, 2009
Yeah, I wear glasses. I never could get over the idea of sticking stuff in my eyes long enough to wear contacts.

Jul 13, 2009
Because I forgot what time it was. Also, the Piccadilly line was closed due to someone throwing themselves under the train. Apparently it happens quite a lot and it tends to back things up and make everything more crowded.

Jul 9, 2009
Not yet. Just eight more days to go. I hope all the stuff I bought will fit in my suitcase, I'd hate to have to leave stuff behind.

May 28, 2009
Yes. All the plugs are different and my camera charger doesn't work but my computer does. Go figure. I'll have to buy batteries here. Hope they sell double A's in Scotland.

Oh, and the fish and chips are really good.

There was a five hundred dollar scholarship and I know there are other scholarships available that would have payed for the whole thing but I wasn't eligible for them. I wound up having to get a student loan for most of it.
Luckily my dad was nice and bought me the plane ticket and a nice set of luggage; otherwise it looks like I'm going to be paying for this trip for the next ten or twenty years.

On the bright side, if the plane crashes on the way back and I die all my student loans are forgiven. (I'm a bit of a pessimist but I know that isn't likely to happen; I'm not nearly famous enough.)

I was wondering how long it would take someone to figure that out. I'm leaving for Scotland on the 27th. I'll be staying for six weeks for study abroad with my college. I'll probably post some stuff while I'm over there. Should be fun, just got new luggage and fisihed packing today.

Apr 30, 2009
Thanks. I'm glad to be going. I just hope the swine flu I heard about in the news doesn't cause problems.

Mar 27, 2009
There are a few clouds floating around here too, but only on the west side of the campus, like there's a barrier or something.

Mar 27, 2009
Funny, I didn't catch that. You think it has anything to do with time zone differences?

Mar 27, 2009
I'm keeping my fingers crossed, it's supposed to be nice out today.

Mar 26, 2009
Thanks but don't worry, the snow went away as quickly as it came.

Mar 26, 2009
The snow came back today but at least it's not below zero anymore like last month.
