What's The Story?
 
Come to The InSite and find out for yourself!  Starting next week, The
InSite launches an unbelievably cool (yet totally believable) teen soap
opera called "The Story" and what a story it is!   Becca, Dee, Chaz and
Miguel, a bunch of total opposites, are all transfer students to Sandale
High School and it's four-way "hate at first sight."  Unfortunately,
they're forced to work *very* closely together on a major project that
includes keeping a journal and every Friday they have to write a new
entry.  Read the journals and find out all the juice and dirt about
what's going on in their lives.  Who's going out with who?  Who's
worried and scared?  Who's plotting a power play?  Whose heart is
breaking?  Because these teens are often confused about... life... we've
set it up so you can send them email and give them advice.  They sure
need it!  Looks like it's going to be a really long Sophomore year at
Sandale, or is it?

New this week!!!!!!!
 
                The InSite's Abusive Relationship Test
 
    "Abuse can be emotional (where someone consistently disregards,
    invalidates and/or purposely hurts another's feelings to control
    them). Abuse can also be physical (where someone uses violence or
    the threat of violence to get their way). In both cases one person
    is treating the other with a lack of respect."
 
Read the article- take the test........ It's your life...

Burning up because someone has upset you? Sad because someone has let
you down -  again? Happy because you got a better test result than you
expected? All these feelings are what makes us what we are at any point
in time. But what exactly are these "feelings"?
 
Find out in "The Fires Within," The InSite's web page about emotions and
how to deal with them. Visit our website at
 
         /theinsite/me/me_fires.html

You have probably seen the picture at the bottom of our web pages- a
young woman calling "Hey Terra!". Clicking on this image takes you to
our advice columnist Terra, and her hundreds of replies to questions
that bother teens and young adults. Read the Letter of the Week, or
browse through the many folders of advice on matters of the heart, the
body and the soul. Submit your problem to Terra - she is only too glad to
take the time to respond to your query.

Conferences??? They hold conferences in #TheInSite??
 
Lately, #TheInSite has been used as a casual chat channel at times when
conferences are not scheduled. There is no problem with this- we love to
see people chatting and enjoying themselves. However, we would
appreciate our chatters realizing that #TheInSite DOES have a primary
purpose, and that is to provide quality conferencing on subjects of
vital importance to teens and young adults. So please - if a host
announces that a conference is about to start, don't think that it is a
channel takeover. The host is merely using #TheInSite for the purpose
that the channel was designed for, and has scheduled this conference in
the approved manner.
 
Very soon also, there will be a #TheInSite2, devoted to general chat. We
ask our loyal fans to use this channel for general chat when conferences
are on in #TheInSite :)
