Honesty is scary. This is the simple Truth that many of us know, either from personal experience or from reading the Postsecret cards. The reality is that we all hide things we feel and did/do/want to do from each other out of fear of scrutiny or judgment, or out of our belief that we would be assured that we are the really bad horrible people we may think ourselves to be. That's why some of us go to therapy, the catholics amongst us go to confession, and some of us go to websites like grouphug in order to confess anonymously our secrets and let them out, once and for all. I didn't know about Grouphug until I read the book version, which had the collection of the best confessions ever submitted on them. I have been addcited to that website ever since, wasting houres of work-time reading the confessions. I have never submitted a confession myself, but I was thoroughly both terrified and reliefed of how many confessions I could relate to and of knowing that I am not the only one who thinks those kind of thoughts. Thus the point of this post. I want you all to play along like we did on that post and submit an anonymous confession in the comments section of this post. It could be anything you want to confess or lay off your chest, once and for all. I will start by posting a confession here to get the ball rolling, and then I will put a second anonymous confession in the comments section at some point during the day. My first confession is the following: The truism that rooming with your friend is the fastest way to ruin your friendship is true. I got my own apartment sophmore year in college with a korean-american friend of mine, and it ended up being the roommate situation from hell. He was a twinky who thought he was black, if that makes any sense to you. He would get the rent money from his parents the begining of the month and then would spend it all on weed, and would work for 2 weeks trying to raise the money so we wouldn't get evicted for not paying our rent on time.He would hang out with his friends in his room and hook up a mike to this huge speaker and play classic hiphop music and attempt to rap to it, at 3 AM IN THE MORNING! Not only that, he was trying to grow a marijuana plant in his room, which anyone who went into our apartment could see, because the moron one night got drunk with his friends and then thought it would be an AWESOME IDEA to break the door to his room. So now, anytime the cops may knock on our apartment (which was frequent because the whole building would have the craziest parties. The Unisex stripper party- which was my idea- was the best though, but that's another story) they might see it, and we would all get arrested, since I wouldn't be able to deny knowledge of its existance, given that anyone can see it and all. So anyway, one day I got fed up and decided I would do something about it. So I went and got a can of hairspray from my neighbour and sprayed hairspray all over the plant and the soil, which I knew would end up killing it, no matter what, within the week. I then went and brought see-through nail polish and used it to paint all over the electric plug of the giant speaker. Nail polish is an insulator, so if he plugged the speaker to the electric outlet, the speaker wouldn't work, because the electricity couldn't go through. So not only did he think his speaker got busted when he came back that day, within a week his pot plant died as well. He couldn't figure out what happened, and I think he silently doubted I was behind this, but he really couldn't prove it. After that, I ended up sleeping really well without worrying about him "busting a verse" to "Dre Day"at 4 am, or of the cops arresteing him and me one day for growing weed in the apartment. And You know what? I don't feel bad about it at all. I am glad I did it! *Confession over* Now it's your turn, just like last time. Confess to Father Sandmonkey and don't be afraid of judgment, cause there won't be any. Just go for it. Sure, you won't get immediate absolution or anything, but I bet you will feel good about letting it off your chest! It's Confession Time people, let's get this started!
