Today I was kinda letdown by someone I care about, and was just not feeling so good. I felt fairly good when I went on my walk, but then just coming onto Hatrack, made me feel so much better. I don't post as much as I used to, mainly because I'm really busy with college life, but it's always here for me to come back when I need it, like tonight. I just came on and looked at some old threads, and it was just calming. So that's what hatrack is for me, it's my security blanket. I can use it to laugh and distract me from things, or it's there when I need a hug. And it's where I can share the thoughts that come to me, those that are random, those that mean alot, and then just the strange experiences of life.
Alot of people don't understand what hatrack is to me, like I think Carolyn (my roommate) thinks it's a bit weird that I say I love hatrack, when it's just an online forum. But I love hatrack, because it can make me smile when things are hard. And no one even has to really know that I'm sad. People reach out to me, without even really knowing that they are. And it's beauty.
Hatrack feels like my hometown. The real hometown, where I know most of the neighbors (and whose lawn to stay off of ), where there are always new people coming through, where the issues of the day get debated on the capital steps and on front porches. It's my happy place.
[Edit: the kind of hometown where college kids sometimes drop back by, no big fuss, just to hang out and snuggle their security blanket. ]
Hatrack is a place I simply love, because when I come here I know I will be able to say whatever I think and not being judjed, or not in a bad sense. My companion doesn't understand that, he thinks I may turn as a mormon but, hey, nothing is perfect
