Our 200th secret:

A little about me:

Hello, I'm one of the PPsP owners, Katie.
On Polyvore I go as Matsumorii.
About me..
Well, I am 17 years old.
I was raised in Chicago, but am moving to Virginia to be with my husband.
He is in the Navy.
Yes, I said husband.
We have a son named Josiah, he is one year old.
I am an artist, and enjoy music very much.
Especially classical, my favorite composer is Rachmoninov.
To me, classical music is a story. A poem without words.
I have experienced a great deal of pain in my life,
and am currently going through a lot of hardship.
My father was recently put in jail.
I was also raised by a deeply, deeply religious mother.
We were raised pentecostal.
I have broken away from that religion,
and am not sure of my views on religion at all.
I may be spiritual, I may not be,
but I hate religion.
I am very firm on my beliefs (not speaking about religion) and political views.
And I will readily defend them if the need arises.
Besides all this 'inner core stuff',
I'm very quiet.
I tend to keep to myself, and will not speak unless spoken to first.
So yeah. That's me.

Feel free to add me on mySpace, just let me know who you are.
And if you ever, ever need someone to talk to, I'm here. (:
Sometimes it's easier talking to a stranger.

Don't quit : Unknown Author.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

PPsP: The official blog.

Welcome to the Poly Postsecret Panel (PPsP) blog, an expansion on the steadily growing Polyvore page.

What is Postsecret?
Postsecret is described as a 'community art project', created by Frank Warren. People can anonymously mail in a postcard, containing a secret, confession, quote - anything they would like share. Postsecret started out as a simple project, but has grown into a national (and global) one. Frank Warren now holds seminars at high schools and colleges, and has had several hundred postcards featured in museams all over the nation.


What is Polyvore?
Polyvore is a website where users are able to create 'sets', or pieces of art, and display them for others to see. Users create art sets, fashion sets, even debate sets.


What is PPsP?
PPsP, or Poly Postsecret Panel, merges these two websites into one. It allows users to send in a secret, anonymously, and watch them be made into a set for others to see. PPsP uses a crushtag for secrets.
