Because the friends that I have made here at Pip have all come from Teen Chat...
And although some chats might be a little (ok a lot) of mindless clutter, it makes us happy.
I think you can learn a lot about us by looking at the Teen Chat forum. You can learn what makes us angry, and what makes us happy. You can learn who we relate to, and what significant events have shaped who we are today. You can see what are values are, and what we go through to keep them.
That may come with some controversy, and that might come with some inside jokes that no one understands...but it is too precious to lose.
The friends I have on pip know more about me than a lot of people at home....and they live hundreds of miles away....
It is a great thing to love someone so dearly as friend, and to have never seen them in person....it takes away stereotypes, and prejudices of what you look like, where you are from, and who you hang out with....
Isnt this a home without a wall,
Our haven without ends,
A circle we all call
Our Family of Friends!????
To everything there is a season...
