That's what they want.

I know it's hard not to be...but we can't live in fear. I'm trying my hardest not to. It may actually borderline with ignorance at times, but ignorance is bliss.


I refuse to live in fear.........

I'm not so much scared as I am concerned I guess you could say. I try not to let the idea of possible war or terrorist attacks consume me but do stay aware of what is going on.

Sicy- again you are right on...well said!

We have our lives and we need to live them. For all the bad/negatives things we have in our lives there are twice as many good ones however small or large they may be.

I'm with Sicy, BC and Elvis Presley...if something is going to happen, I can't change it or stop it so I refuse to live my life in fear.

I'm not going to change my plans or sit around waiting for something to happen...when we start doing that, they win

I'm not sitting here in fear either - I'm scared for what might happen - but that doesn't mean I'm changing my life, or shaking or being melodramatic.

I enjoy being aware - my caution drives me to watch the news in the morning and at night to get updates. Other than that, I'm doing like the rest of you.

For me, it's just that I don't want to be here anyway. I was just as unhappy five months ago as I am today. I can't think of ANYTHING in DC that makes me happy. I don't have a life here. The only reason I'm staying here until September is because I have an apartment and a paycheck here. I just don't know if it's worth it.

I feel the same way a lot of times, esp about my job ( ) and life can get pretty bleak when job sucks but takes up all your time, friends/boyfriend are far away, it's freezing outside all the time.. just hold on meegannie - I know things will turn up soon. Do pros/cons etc and after giving it some rational thought- maybe the best thing *would* be to move. Luckily the internet goes pretty much whereever you do so we're with ya

& hot chocolate

The only things that're keeping me from leaving are the problem of what to do with all of my stuff, what to tell people at work and my roommate, and how long my money would last. I have to have enough money to live all of next year while I'm getting my degree with NO source of income. I have a decent amount saved now, but I don't think it would last over a year and a half.

I just feel SO trapped. I don't know how other people can afford to just pick up and move to a foreign country or anywhere far away on the spur of the moment.

I don't like the fact that they have VERY credible evidence that something will happen here, yet I still am expected to come into work every day, when I'm doing nothing of any urgence.

ok meeganie, forgive me for asking but...

whats going on? i know dc is under a huge threat right now, but out of curiousity is this why your leaving? i mean it may sound stupid to hear me asking this, but i dont really understand whats going on.

your job sucks, your fiance lives in england (right?) and you have absolutely no reason to be in dc other than to get a paycheque?

sounds like a good reason to me. cant you get a work visa in england?

where does your family live, if i may ask?

i think if my family didnt live in dc, and i were in the same position as you, id leave too.

Sometimes I feel stuck where I'm at especially after I moved home to help out my parents but there are some really great things about it as well, so I have come to terms with it. It's seems like you dont have alot to tie you down here so maybe you do need to follow your heart...it can take alot of nerve but sometimes you just have to take the risk.
