    • To the man who groped my wife

      Fuck you.


      You thought she was some woman alone at a bar you could take advantage of, I can only assume you have done this several times before from how casual you were.


      Fuck you for acting like a victim when she told you "I'm here with my husband", eyes on the ground hoping you would leave. You thought you could corner her and intimidate her into being quiet and no one would notice. But I saw, the bartender saw and what did you do? You ran, not before calling her a "cunt".


      Fuck you for making me think of ways I could have stopped this. I was too far away to stop you from blocking her path and cornering her. These aren't things I should think about when I go out for a date.


      Fuck you for making her think this is her fault.


      Fuck you for making her think that because she wore a sweater that showed her shoulder its her fault for enticing you.


      Fuck you for making her question everything even slightly revealing in her wardrobe.


      Leanne and I have dealt with men like you before.  We're both victims of sexual assault, myself when I was 19, her at 14.  We've seen men like you, it's all about the power you hold over someone else. You wanted someone to submit and when she resisted it bruised whatever frail little ego you had left making you lash out.


      I hope men like you are a dying breed, the kind of man who thinks woman owe him just for existing. I wish I knew your name, so you would pay your actions. People like you don't deserve to be comfortable when you go home at night, you should know and feel the fear my wife felt when you forced yourself on her.


      Until that day comes.  Fuck you


    • Being Happy

      2 years ago

      PowerofTower

      I've never really considered myself a happy person.  I've experienced joy, things have excited me, but I've never really been happy or understood how people could always be happy.  I just feel like something maybe I wasn't supposed to experience or wasn't for me.  Maybe I was supposed to always feel indifferent towards everything all the time.


      But as I sit here typing this, my wife asleep on my lap, my derpy rotweiller asleep on my feet and my cat sitting jealously across the room in our new house I realized for the first time I am happy.  Not for any reason, I just feel at peace and at ease, like I can finally breathe, and I love it.


      I was 21 or 22 when I joined this site.  I was horribly depressed after a breakup, which lead to me not taking my ADD meds, which lead to me being unemployed and unsure what I should do with my life or if I even wanted to do anything.  Most days were spent watching the same videos on repeat, eating at the Boston Market across the street from me and drinking Jack Daniels straight from the bottle.  Then I started find friends here, people who were doing amazing things with their life and who were happy and I wanted to be more like them.  So I did the hardest thing I've ever done, I was honest with myself.  I was over 200lbs (a lot for me), unshaven, drunk and angry,  I barely recognized the person I had become.  So I forced myself to control my drinking, I went on runs every morning, and hit the gym everyday until I was proud of my body.  I got my masters degree and in Computer Science and got a great job in front end development.


      So basically what I'm saying is thank you to everyone who has ever been a friend with me on this site, you've helped me in more ways than you know.  I'm not good at expressing myself in person or over messages, and I don't have a better platform to reach out to you with.  So to all of you, thank you, you're all the reason I get to experience this little emotion called "Happy".


      And to all my other friends who are struggling, or are in worse positions that I was, keep your head up, you can do this.  I wish I had a good or meaningful way to end this message, so I'll just say, I love all of you and thank you.

      Thats all.  The wedding was beautiful, my wife was amazing.  I can't get used to this damn ring though.  It feels so weird.

    • Wedding Planning

      2 years ago

      PowerofTower

      So I'm in the thick of wedding planning now.  No one told me that so much thought and stress went into weddings and I blame all of you for that.  For the most part I'm just trying to keep my head down and let my fiancé do all the planning. I never saw myself getting married and she's be wedding planning since she was 10, so I'm just gonna trust her.


      The only things I'm in charge of are the alcohol, picking a signature drink (If anyone can think of  clever way to combine her southern belle and my Jewish into a name, I'll love you) and the food.  I went tasting today and my stomach has never been more full.  As nervous as I am about such a big change I really couldn't be happier with the way my life is going right now.

      So watching football, realizing its been a while. Still as big a nerd as ever. But now I have a job. I'm building a website in VR and I build websites for a local bank. Things are going amazingly well. Its amazing to think that a year ago I was unemployed and desperate for anything that came by. Maybe I'll get to be around more now, I hope. I miss everyone.

    • HIRE ME

      UX/UI DESIGNER HIRE ME! I applied for a job on Wednesday at an app development company, expecting to hear back in a few days. Instead they got back to me in 3 hours asking to see my portfolio, the problem being I hadn't even started it. So I told them it wasn't finished yet (Technically not a lie) and told them it would be ready by Friday. So after roughly 12 hours of sleep in the past week heres my portfolio!

      Have to write a paper on what makes something virtual vs. real for my virtual environments class. 5 hours in and it's either going to drive me insane or make me a pompous asshole.

      I'm halfway done with grad school! My group and I just got back from Costa Rica and presented our work in front of prospective employeers. Heres to hearing back from them. You should checkout the website we made. I was in charge or UX/UI as well as troubleshooting code and I'm really proud of how it came out. Check it out! While I'll be looking for jobs now, I shouldn't be as busy with school so hopefully I'll see y'all more!

      Are you feeling warm? Are you feeling fuzzy? Well get ready to! (And then go see a doctor because those things aren't normal D:)

      Power. Tower. Grady. What the hell is your name?!?!

      Kidding! :3 Happy Valentine's Day, Tower/Power/Grady! Thank you for being part of the GGG - honestly, I can't think of it without thinking of you! You've got such a great sense of humor and you take teasing with ease - and throw it back, too! Listening to your fanfiction scarred me for life, so thanks for that, and you really stepped up with the Movie nights and created something brilliant - Fridays are wonderful now and it's your fault!

      You're a fantastic person, Grady/Tower/Power - don't let anyone ever convince you otherwise!

      Now quick, go refill yourself with air! Try not to fly away, though~! > u >

      I think it's safe to say, you are totally amazing! The night you read the fanfiction may have scarred me for life, but I'm still happy that you're part of GGG because you're just great smiley0.gif Game Nights wouldn't be the same without you!

      Happy Valentines Day! smiley12.gif
