Re: public

If you have Spotify send me your username and I'll share my "End of the World" playlist with you. For me it's a pretty good "purge and reboot" soundtrack. :)

Re: public

Well... I kinda trimmed my beard off. I can barely recognize myself in the mirror it looks so different. And for music, music has been hard because so much reminds me of this and that, but the two that felt right were NIN's 'Last' and Harvey Danger's "Where have all the merrymakers gone?" mainly flagpole sitta, but the whole album is rather enjoyable. I plan to branch out and try to utilize your other advice in the next week though.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Re: public

Thanks, Sara. That's a really good list, I'll try to start incorporating it. :)

You know what's funny with melo, is that I started it 10 years ago alone and heartbroken in the desert. And here I am now in pretty much the same place, right back where I started. I'm glad you kept melo around, it's one of the only things I have right now.

Re: public

yes, but you should get the one from my profile picture, because it's better than my real face.

Would you be OK with me getting your face tattooed on my body?

ALL HAIL SARA!

Re: public

Step 1: Make a "starting over" playlist. I recommend Drake "Started from the bottom" and Coldplay "The Scientist". Add your own and let me know what they are.

Step 2: Get new hair, and probably a whole new wardrobe. When you look different you feel different.

Step 3: Purge. Throw a bunch of shit away.

Step 4: Shop. Buy some new shit. I usually opt for shoes and notebooks. And maybe some digital accessories I think will make me productive.

Step 5: Do new stuff. Join a club, or go to a meetup, or take a class. It's called "pattern interruption". When you feel new and you learn new stuff you start to become new, which helps start something over.

That's the best I can do right now without knowing exactly what you're starting over.

Re: public

Hey Sara, you're good with advice.

What do you do when you have start all over? Where do you even begin? :(

Thanks.

Re: public

Hi Sara. You may not know me, or maybe you may remember my user name. I just wanted to thank you for making melo, for keeping it up so I can read the years of writing I have put here. The time I spent here, and the time I sometimes still spend here mean a lot to me. Reading about my past is possible because of you.
Thanks a lot.

Re: Dark and Light

three packs is never enough. i've been around here for a bit, but I don't think I've ever thanked you for keeping this place up. 16 year old me was too busy trying to ghetto upload AFI .mp3s via 56k (back when melo offered a small amount of image hosting) to take notice of how much you put into building this place.

I've been in love twice. Both of them I met here. Both broke my heart.
One led to an internship that changed the entire course of my life. Another one lasted 5 years and I moved from socal to Chicago. I wouldn't change any of it.

I'm 27 now. Living in Berlin and working on a Master's degree, but I still keep my thoughts, feelings, and secrets here. Thank you. Thank you for everything.

It was a 20+ hour road trip to Florida, so no, it wasn't enough cigarettes.

Re: public

I really wish this is a work of fiction. I can never imagine the pain if it isn't. You have given a place of hope for so many on the edge of suicide, me being one of them on more than one occasion. More than I could ever care to admit to myself. You could help another one pull back from the edge. You've pulled me back from the edge before. I hope you can find a path to help another on the edge. The worst thing is being too afraid to lock someone in a padded room only to see them on the table in a morgue. I have scars on my wrists. Scars that could have been a carving on a tombstone. Everything Melo has given me has kept them from being carved in something more permanent than flesh. Never let another fade away because you couldn't do all that you could have done.

Re: public

I've been there.. in a different way. Just be patient.
Be patient and be the sane one.
When they fuck up and make the wrong move, you fucking strike.
And have a lawyer when you do it.
Document everything. Everything.
But I think in the end, you will get the peace that you and those babies need. <3
Be strong lady, because you're among the best.

Re: public Hi Sara, I haven't posted in years. Today I logged in and remembered what I loved here, but I also remembered the things that I hated. I also bought a year of elite to help with the site. Thanks for not destroying Melo.

Re: public

Thank you, Sara. Thats robotic and generic, BTW. I sincerely mean it, but it has to last like 6 months. At least the amount of time your comment question lasts. Honestly though, thanks.

Re: public

Hello Sara! I have a problem with my account. I can't see anyone's entries or folders, not even my own. I also can't post new entries, because the folder dropdown menu shows up blank. Sounds like the same problem that heartcatcher gspotted you about a few weeks ago. Please see if you can find what the problem is if/when you get a chance. Thank you!

Hey I know got shits to do and mine is low on the list but please give me my bangs back. Dude for real, I have few talents in the world and banging is one of them. It's like you've taken Picasso's paint brushes.

Re: public

Why is it that an anonymous user was able to read an entry that is now in an FO folder?

Re: public

I'm a newb and every time I try to create a new folder it says it's been created but then it disappears which also means that I can't make any entries. How can I fix it?
