Chat room A
Hi, anyone who's out there. I really like
surfing and sailing. I live with my family
in the city but we go to the coast at weekends
if my dad isn't too busy with work. We've
got a small boat but my parents don't let
me sail it on my own, which is ridiculous
'cause I'm 18! I've got a younger brother
Matt, but he doesn't really like outdoor
stuff much - he can't even swim. He prefers
to read books and science magazines. My
mum thinks he's a genius because he got
three As on his last school report card.
If you like sailing and live in the Southampton
area, send me an email. Ciao. Tom.
'My job is getting me down, my children
don't listen to me...' Sounds familiar?
Well don't just sit there and complain about
it. There are plenty of people in a similar
situation. Why not reach out and share your
feelings with a stranger? We all need a
shoulder to cry on and often, we're not
getting it at home. So, why delay? There's
probably someone waiting to share your load
at the other end of your keyboard right
now. For a small fee, Friends Inc will put
you in touch with the right person. It's
good to talk.
My name's Joan. I'm writing because it seems
to me our lives are so similar. I don't
get out much either because I'm looking
after my granddad. He's very old and sweet
but it can be quite difficult sometimes
looking after him all on my own. Like you,
I do all the meals and shopping. In the
evenings, I read him a story from one of
his thousands of books. His eyesight has
long gone but his mind is still there. In
my free time, I love painting and looking
at the stars. I use my granddad's telescope
to paint pictures of the moon. I'm very
pleased with the results. It takes a lot
of time and patience but it's worth it in
I'm hoping that someone out there can help
us. We're desperate to make contact with
an old schoolmate. His name's Peter Marshall
and he comes from Bournemouth. He studied
anthropology at Cardiff Uni and graduated
in '98. His family used to live in the Bournemouth
area but they died a couple of years ago.
No one has heard from Pete since then. The
last thing we heard he was going to Tunisia.
We're getting married soon and the wedding
wouldn't be the same without him. If you
think you know Pete and where he is, please
let him have our contact details. There
is a sizeable reward for anyone who can
help us to make our special day complete.
