Alright friends, it's time for a little bonding activity. Some of you know we're trying to get the community up and running again and as part of that, we feel it's important that we all get to know each other a little bit and create a bond and trust. So, without further ado, here's a little activity. Just repost it in a comment and we can keep this going until we all know a little bit about eachother.

Favorite thing about yourself?:
Random fact about you:
Favorite memory with your loved one:

If you feel comfy, attach a small picture of yourself so we all know who we're talking to! (Or maybe I'm just a picture whore. I do love them.)

If you feel the need to add any more questions, please do so in your comments!


Ok, here's the deal; I'm in stage band(which Mr. Kade directs) and I'm an 8th grader that plays the trombone(The highest in my school). There is this suck-up 7th grader that gets all the solos and he SUCKS! Everytime he plays his solo he slows us down and messes everyone(including himself) up. And it really pisses me off. Doesn't Mr. Kade realise that I'm older than the 7th grader and I deserve the solo that will be played in front of people at the mall!?!?! This happens Thur. and I need to tell him about it tomorrow, if I wait until Thurs. he'll be really pissed off. How can I go about letting Mr. Kade know how I feel? Shouuld I tell him(We'll be alone!!! Just the two of us, which will make me really nervous), should I get a friend to come along(We won't be alone, less nervous. BUT I like to be alone w/ him, it feels more intimate) or should I get a fellow 8th grade trombone to tell him how I feel(She feels the same as I do, that it's unfair for a lower person to get those opportunities)? I don't know what to do!!!!! Help me guys, please!? Or should I just not say anything?? I know that if I get the 7th graders solo he will go whinning to Mr. Kade and it will be all screwed up!!! I don't want Mr. Kade to think lower of me and I don't want him to think I'm a cry-baby or something like that! I just don't think it's fair and it's driving me crazy. Help me guys, what should I do! I allready have enough problems telling him, "Bye!" How is it going to turn out if I go and complain to him???!!!!! *sobs* I just don't know what to do.......

New Here!

Hello everyone! I have most definatly had the (mis)fortune of falling DEEPLY in love with a man that I shouldn't have. I'm 13 and he's 48; he's my band director at my school. I figured this would be a really nice place to discuss all of that emotional stuff about him that I keep locked in side because my friends hate it when I talk about him constantly. So, hello everyone!

Admin Change

Please welcome justacube as the new maintainer of this community!

With that, I step down, and thank you guys for making this community the nice little place it has been. Good luck in the future!


Mod post again!

Hey guys...I posted this a while ago but now that we have some more members I feel it's a good time to post it again:

In summary, it's unfair to all of you for me to admin a community I'm not actively involved in and I'm hoping I can find a replacement. Any takers?


X-Posted to a few communities

I think Chris and I are going out together on Wednesday evening... mainly to talk about the fact that I'm dating his friend's husband... but still... that's something, right? Even if he does hate my guts...

Media relating to this type of love!

Heya everyone, I made a similar topic in the authority_love community, and it was pretty successful over there, so I thought...why not make one in this community?

I'm sure not many know of me, since I've only posted once...only to delete it out of paranoia ^^; Thanks to the one person that commented, though. I tend to lurk, lol.

Well, basically list any books, movies, songs, etc that apply to this type of situation/love. It can be any genre, any language, even if it's only one episode or a 'side story' to a long series. Just contribute what you know! I don't care if you find something a week, a month, a YEAR after this topic is made! Anything you have to say would be wonderful. The songs don't have to EXACTLY be about teacher/student, but can even be something YOU can apply to the situation.

For starters, I'll post what the authority_love members and myself came up with...(minus the books/movies that don't have to do with teacher love)(Correct me if any of these are wrong, I haven't exactly seen/read everything on this list...)

Admin Post - New Community Manager?

Hi folks, your friendly yet incredibly quiet admin here!

I'm sorry I haven't been more involved in this community. I created it in the midst of school and I've been very busy with both that and work. I kept intended to write my own introduction post, tell my story, and be more active in the community...but it just never happened.

I feel it is unfair for me to run this community when I'm barely involved in it...plus my own issues relating to the community's subject matter have been slowly sorting themselves out and I'm trying to make an effort to move on from things. I'm thinking it might be best for me to transfer the community to someone else who can be more involved with it. I'd like to to be someone who feels they can keep up the spirit with which it was originally created: a small friendly community to provide support and discussion. Currently I have new membership moderated (I check the profiles and journals of each person before approving them to make sure they aren't trolls or anything like that) it's up to the new admin if they'd like to keep that policy, but you should announce it to the community if you plan on changing it.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't been around more or gotten to know any of you better...I wish I had! If you're interested in taking over administration of this community, please reply to this post with a brief explanation. Thanks!
