Wrote this a few days ago but forgot to post it in all the hassle so here we go:

So Yesterday I had a pretty crappy day and I was giving up hope and faith. I stopped believing in magic, seeing it around me in everyday life. It was one of the days where you get so stressed out you can't see anything in a positive light. Luckily for me these days don't come very often and I have friends who talk me out of them. Still made me feel like shit and I ended up getting angry with everyone over every little thing. Basically my day of pre-Christmas shopping for food to make it through the holidays turned into a nightmare. And well now this seems like a bit of a rant, it's just I guess I'm trying to learn from it. Not the first time I've had one of these days and I'm sure it won't be the last but even though I had no hope and I didn't really trust anyone I was talking to. Hey I'm still here though I guess you just have to make it through the days where everything seems horrible and there's no hope to get to the days that are amazing and take your breath away. They happen, I may not have had a day that I remember taking my breath away but I've had moments. I'll believe in them anyway. I found my hope again, not sure how but I did. If I find some magic cure for bad days I shall be sure to let you know but please don't give up hope. There are people out there who care, we may be close by or oceans apart but I care. That may not mean a lot, and I may not be able to do a lot but if I care other people will. So please, I know it's hard but don't give up hope, things get better.

Howdy folks!
Er-Bear here and at your service. ^^ I will be your design co-ordinator, poet and voice of experience/insanity for this journey. Please fasten your seat-belts and note that emergency exits are here, here, here, here and here... and I suppose that x in the top right hand corner MIGHT do something.. but I wouldn't click it.. just in case it's a self-destruct button.. never know. *Ahem* ANYYYWAY, I'm not very good at writing but when Straight Talker told me about this I just had to get in on it. Not cos I'm a glory hog or anything, but because she was starting something I never had the guts to do. She's starting change. I'm not one for being all like "I had a dream!" or "Yes we motherf*cking Can!!" but I do think I can make a difference to the world.. just can't do it on my own. So if you're reading this (Hi mom!) erm, I mean. If you're reading this, and you want to make a change, if you have a story to share or you just need a little help to know you're not alone, we're here.
Be the change you want to see in the world... today I'll be glitter (:
Peace out,

So the others haven't posted yet so I will.

So on Friday, a week ago now, I was walking down Grafton street with a friend. I noticed that another friend was carol singing for charity so I did the decent thing and donated some money. Later on I we were walking back down and I saw 2 boys from a school near me so I decided to also give some money to them. The entire time I was walking towards those boys my friend was pulling me back telling me that I had already given enough that day. I didn't care. If some one needs help or some cause needs help I will try my best to do something for them. They said that if I got back all the money I gave to charity I'd be rich, I don't mind, I'd just give it all back again. This isn't a random hope or fleeting thought, this part of who I am. I won't give up, I can't. Just watching Noel's Christmas Presents inspired me with hope of what I can possibly do. I'd love to do what he does, but I can't, well not just yet. I will though, and I won't give up. Even when I grow up, I won't give up. So I know there aren't a lot of people reading this but that doesn't bother me. I won't give up, because at least this'll be reminder to me as to what I've done, what I hope to do and where I'm going. Hope is easily lost but is worth holding on to with all your might.
Sorry it took so long to post but starting today I will be trying to post 3 times a week, even if it has to be 3 posts in one day. I'll do it because I can't give up hope.
Well that's all I really have to say.

The gang.

Alright, so wow, second post today.
Well I told two of my friends about this blog and they decided they'd like to help in any way they can so here they are:
Er-Bear my lovely artistic friend and kobold1, the cynical one who still likes to help.
I'll let them introduce themselves.
So a big thanks to them for both their help and support in this.
I'll see y'all tomorrow.

I'm not Rapunzel but...

Why start this now is a question I've been asking myself. The main answer I can come up with is that it's all going to start happening soon. This summer I found that it's possible to donate hair to make wigs for cancer sufferers. Ever since I've been growing my hair so it's long enough to donate. For me this is something really important. When I was 10 one of my friends died from leukimia. She barely had any hair and she was in and out of hospital a lot. She never stopped smiling despite it all. So this I'm doing in her memory. She brought so much joy to everyone and I'd like to help some one, who like she did, is fighting a tremendous battle. My hair isn't as long as Rapunzel's so when I cut it off it'll be pretty darn short, but hey if it can make some one else smile, why not? I'll be collecting sponsorship off that as well. As far as I know it'll be happening just after Easter weekend. I'll let you know more as it unfolds.
Here's to the scissors.

First things first.

So hello there.
First blog and all I feel I should let you know some stuff. Well on here I go by Straight Talker, I'm a 16 year old girl and I go to school in Dublin, Ireland. I can be a little strange at times but I'm also strong willed and passionate. The reason I started this blog is simple, I'm fed up of waiting. I always feel like there's more I could do, like I could help. No matter how much I wanted to I could never figure out where to start. Now I'm tired of waiting for some one else to take the lead and do what needs to be done. I'm tired of waiting for it all to come together. People need help now, things need to change, and that's not going to happen if we're all waiting is it? There are some causes that I'll be dealing with more will mainly be because personal experience or understanding.
So on this blog you shall find my plans, ideas, hopes and maybe, possibly photos from the first few events. After a while I hope to start organising some events and getting you to join in.
They say that children are the future but I don't see why we should wait till tomorrow to try solve the problems of the day. Everything going on around us influences us in ways we don't see. I've decided I'm going to try do something. Maybe I won't get far. Maybe I won't make a difference or help as I'd like, but maybe, just maybe, one of you out there reading this will decide to do something. It might just be a simple change like paying attention to someone you normally wouldn't. Maybe all I'll be able to get out of this is saying I tried, that I did something. I don't know but whatever happens I will try my hardest.
Next post should be up later today or tomorrow...hopefully.
So this is it from the Straight Talker.
