(4) hi its me again and i really want to here from you!! (Mickey Mouse, Age 13 to 18, 1/17/2003 5:01:41 PM, My_Life_is)

(5) my name is rinat and i'm at the 8th grade, I have 2 sisters and 1 brother: Orit, Eden and Shalom. my parents names are: Zehava and Aharon. I'm 14th years old. My friends are: Perah, Addie, Hellie and Liraz. I live in Akko, Israel. And my favorite color is pink. (Riant, Age 13 to 18, 1/27/2003 2:32:48 AM, My_Life_is)

(6) My life is like a window. I see the world, but I cannot touch it, nonetheless understand how people can live so freely in it. For the fourteen years I have lived I have seen the two types of people there are on Earth. The livers and the dreamers. Those who will do anything, go at any length to get what they want and in the end, they may or may not be satisfied. Their greed can be maintained. The dreamers on the other hand live inside of their head, live inside of their writing, their poetry and their weak spoken words--and they will surely never ammount to anything but someone who has satisfied their own unselfish needs. My brother is a self-sufficient, intelligent young man, turning seventeen in mid-may, my sister a extroverted, out-going figure of twelve. They both find school difficult, yet right for them, and I shudder at home under the teaching of my Mother as a homeschooler. I do not desire a real social life, I come online to chat with close friends from different and dedicate most of my time to writing and web design at I have not decided weather I am a liver or a dreamer. I am dormant at this time. (Bobbi, Age 13 to 18, 2/6/2003 8:53:13 AM, My_Life_is)

(7) I like to play paintball and football.My nickname during paintball is red rum.spell it backwardss (Bryan matteson, Age 13 to 18, 2/14/2003 2:18:27 PM, My_Life_is)

(9) I for one won't tell you what i look like but i'll tell you what to expect.When i say somethin yall think is mean i don't know it's mean.I'll speak my mind when i have to,and even when i don't.I'm a lovely strecher of the truth.You ask me a question and a gie you an answer.It might be the wrong answer and have little or no truth in it,but a answer it will be.I;m stubborn and have a quick temper.I like cookies.and i'll fight for what i belive is right no matter the conseqences.People always think i'm a bit 'lost' so i get away with more than i'm supposed to. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 2/19/2003 6:23:51 PM, My_Life_is)

(10) whats the point of this? For thirteen years i have burdened many peoples lives and done nothing much, i live in birmingham England and contrary to this evidence have a life outside the internet.I think before i say and am the sorta person who is there if anyone needs help but can be a little used sumtimes. I still dont get the point of this but anyway im forever pessimistic n unenthusiastic about anything, i get depressed n dont get on well with happy ppl. i like to write but i ent good at it. i dont luv myself which is unusual on the net, bye (Laura, Age 13 to 18, 2/20/2003 1:31:10 PM, My_Life_is)

(12) Laura honey,don't be so sad.If things were going to turn out for the worst in the end then what's the point of going through anything.That's life,everything will work out in the end. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 2/20/2003 2:42:18 PM, My_Life_is)

(13) And just for the record for my thirteen years,i have burdened many people and made them feel down right ashamed.I for one am proud. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 2/20/2003 2:44:35 PM, My_Life_is)

(18) Oh,hey Brigid.That's very cool.I had a feeling that you would be on the Southern side.You writing seems so Southern.Anyway,how does it feel to be the youngest girl?I am the youngest girl in my family.See ya in the chat rooms! (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 2/28/2003 8:15:20 PM, My_Life_is)

(22) I'll say,but then as i am the youngest girl as well,i could put a "Hex Me" sign on the back of my older sisters back (she's 18) while she's talking to someone and that other person would NOT even notice.I was very sly.I did very weird things,i still do,but my sister suspected that i did it,so she would say it's my fault and the grownups would'nt even believe her,but then as i grew older they found out.It's like we both fight pranks for pranks.One day i would do something and then she would get revenge,but we kind of stopped now,because we are so busy,but we still laugh about it. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 3/5/2003 4:41:26 PM, My_Life_is)

(27) Hi, my life is okay i guess.Theres not many problems except for my little brother and sister they are really annoying.You have no clue how hard it is to live with my whiny sister and bossy brother. One good thing is good thing is that I get to drive a race car in Texas and I'm really good at it. Did I mention that I'm a GIRL! (Leslee, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 9:54:45 AM, My_Life_is)

(28) Well, my life is going pretty good right now. I have lots of friends,Stephanie,Kylie,Leslee, Molly,and Amanda.All my teachers are nice. I can't wait until summer! (Danielle, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 10:43:06 AM, My_Life_is)

(29) Hi my life is ok nothing unusual or anything. I have a lot of friends that I like to hang out with and have some fun. Also I have a brother and sister both older than me so they think I'll do anything they say even though they are older they still are very annoying. I like going to school because it's fun and I like to learn but I have to go bye. (Samantha, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 10:43:38 AM, My_Life_is)

(30) Hello, I'm Summer and I live in Texas. I am eleven years old. My life is pretty good. My days at school are long and boring. I have many friends. My life is not as good as others it's just as boring as others. I have two brothers, and no sisters. (Summer, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 10:46:21 AM, My_Life_is)

(31) I'm in middle school not much more different than anyone else. I've got a few good friends that i tag along with at school. Some people won't hang around me for the fact that I have goats...yes i am in 4-h. That doesn't make me weird though right? I'm also an internet freak..i have like 20-40 friends that i talk to daily. Most of them are from different states almost like pen pals. They're like my friends here..same age and all. We all think alike and that can sometimes make us a little upset. School here is ok same as anyone in any other state maybe. The usual daily work, homework, weekly tests and so on. Our teachers aren't mean unless you act up and class constantly and make them mad. My parents are normal not really the unusual type. They get mad at me sometimes because of the way I act though. Anyway I like my parents... they come down on me hard sometimes but at least there's no such thing as "grounding" at our house...I really like that. I have (for the most part) the same life as anyone else so that's pretty much all I can say without going into too much detail. (Amanda , Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 10:47:18 AM, My_Life_is)

(37) My life is alright. I live in West Texas, I go to school, make good grades, and have pretty nice parents. I have tight friends and I am pretty talented. (Tommy, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 12:38:29 PM, My_Life_is)

(38) My life is very tight, it is tight because I have nice parents. They do everything in the world. Plus they provide a roof over my head and food for me too. My mom will cook every night and do a lot of other stuff but so far my life is pretty cool. (Tanner, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 12:39:23 PM, My_Life_is)

(39) I live in Texas ,I live in a little town. I got cool friends and a good school also I love to play video games . (Kooliad, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 3:11:50 PM, My_Life_is)

(40) My life is not all that cool.School is oky. (Anthony, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 3:12:49 PM, My_Life_is)

(41) Hi,my name is Bryan,I am about to live in the city and country. (Bryan , Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 3:13:41 PM, My_Life_is)

(42) I live in texas. My life is pretty hecktic sum times. i do piano, sports, chores,gymnastics, church, and ofcourse school. i get so tired sum times. then meh parents r divorced and that can get pretty rough also. but i have managed to keep everything school, and sports and piano practice. sumtimes i do wish i was sum1 else...not only for all the reasons i have said. but for how i look, how much money i have and all that stuff. life is pretty hard sumtimes, and i would give a reason to never give up and to make u feel better...but im not a teacher!!! so leave meh alone (chrome, Age 1 to 4, 5/5/2003 6:03:42 PM, My_Life_is)

(43) Cool, someone cares about me! Okay, I(unfortunately)live in California at the moment. My friends....hmm....I suppose Nicole, Alexis, Melissa, and Victoria-to cautiously name a few. School is easy. I think I was born too late, 'cause I need harder work. Luckily, this year's practically over. I think I'm gonna take hard classes-if they're are any. Whatever-just gonna miss some people, here and there. Allright, I'm out! Cya! (Ryoko, Age 13 to 18, 6/1/2003 7:19:56 PM, My_Life_is)

(44) Hi. I live in a place where it rains a lot. I really like my best friend because she's really nice and truthful and I'm used to being around her. I tell her a lot of stuff and she doesn't make fun of me :) I don't like it when people make fun of me or act like they're mad at me. I want to tell the truth more even if it might hurt people's feelings and I also want to be nicer. I really like it when people are nice to me. I want a better role model, somebody who's nicer and tells the truth a lot and isn't mean to me. My dad is mean to me sometimes, so he's not a very good role model anymore. High school is nice because most of the people there are pretty nice and it's a place for me to talk to lots of teenagers. (Katie, Age 13 to 18, 7/9/2003 6:10:05 PM, My_Life_is)

(45) My life's pretty good.I'm popular, quite wealthy and a complete game freak. I've got an annoying brother, 2 great parents and 3 cats. I have a lot of friends at school (You'd be able to write about 2 paragraphs if I named all of them.)and I've got a few friends here. I love computer and console games. I also like sports. Especialy football(soccer) and basketball. I'm not the type of person that likes sunshine that much (Unless I'm playing Super Mario Sunshine on my Gamecube). I don't really spend much time outside like ordinary kids cos I'm not ordinary. I spend my time on the internet (even at school) and on my Gamecube or GBA. I'm also accident prone. I've had my arm broken twice, my ankle twisted five times, 2 scars on my leg and one on my hand, my brother recently punched me on my lip and now it's swollen, and I've had a black eye. All in all, my life's okay. (Jasmine, Age 8 to 12, 8/29/2003 6:44:36 AM, My_Life_is)

(46) Hi. I live in the U.K, London, and i totally love the internet n tv.My life is okay i guess except for the fact that I'm not allowed to go out wit friends and i am constantly pressured to work hard at school and get the best marks in the whole world, and being forced to play the one and only instrument of torture...Goodbye (Animal, Age 8 to 12, 8/29/2003 1:03:01 PM, My_Life_is)

(47) Animal! The violin isn't the instrument of torture! It's my brother's farts during the night! Well. Ya all know who I am but you don't know where I come from, same place as Animal does. We both play the violin. I also play the piano and guitar. And Animal is never pressured to work sooo hard in school and get the grades she's getting right now! But newayz...I'm in a slightly lower class then Animal (Who's in the top class for everything!) but I work as hard as I can and love to chat back to teachers. fortunately I get away with a lot, so I've only had two detentions. And 1 was cos of that damned violin! Well, I'll cya laterz. (Jazzy D, Age 8 to 12, 8/30/2003 10:06:57 AM, My_Life_is)
