Caroline Martin: This is that Caroline girl

Caroline Martin: Hahaha! Yes! that was a great day.
Caroline Martin: how's stupid the dog?
Caroline Martin: i never got to know her real name.
FordSploder556: Her real name is "Teri" - Teri Aki Otto - believe that one or not. And she is great - makes me laugh every day.
FordSploder556: Are you not in school anymore? What are you up to?
Caroline Martin: I'm actually down in Raleigh taking some classes at a community college, about to transfer over to East Carolina U, hoping to become a teacher or something.
FordSploder556: That's great - you'd be a great teacher - I think you have a definate flair for the arts
Caroline Martin: oh jeez, thank you sir
FordSploder556: I think you could act, paint, teach art appreciation, music - that's my impression of you anyway - a classy, classical (a little bit out there) girl
Caroline Martin: Wow, thank you! i didn't even think you'd remember me, but wow, thanks. that's what i try for.
Caroline Martin: I have a lot of respect for you, it means a lot to hear all that coming from you.
FordSploder556: I hope your soul regains that wonderful strength it once had. Follow your heart and don't give up. Stay out there, it's a rare and wonderful asset. Follow your heart - not the crowd.
