    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Six Word Memoir
    WolfFaerie7 posted:
    Today at psych rehab I was asked to create a six word memoir about myself. Six words sounds easy right well it's not. It took me awhile to think of memoir that suit me. Here's mine:

    To learn and to grow evermore.

    Can you think of one? That's my challenge to you. Create your own six word memoir. Look forward to seeing your replies.

    I gotta think on this. Give me a day or two. Good assignment. And I like your memoir. It suits you.
