I’m really pathetic and a slow train wreck so by comparison you will always seem emotionally stable and like your life is on track and everyone will be impressed by you and your successful adultness.
I wish that “I couldn’t do my homework because I spent six hours laying in the dark crying and feeling bad for myself instead” was an acceptable excuse.p
The thing is, I am fully aware of everything that I need to do in order to achieve my life goals and dreams. My goals are all possibilities, and they are in my reach, at least theoretically. I know the things I need to be doing, and it just isn’t complicated. It’s things as simple as attending school so that I can graduate with my degree so that I can have the career and life I want; it’s as simple as going from A to B. It is.
I just need to go from point A to point B, it’s all I need to do, and I KNOW it. I do. And every day I feel like all around me I see everyone else doing this successfully. I see people proceeding on their intended path and going from point A to point B purely by doing what they know they need to do in order to succeed and to get what they want.
It isn’t impossible. It isn’t even hard. I just need to go from point A to point B and I can be happy and good at life for once. IT IS SO EASY.
Yet is seems like at some point I got lost between point A and B, and now I spend most of my time wandering aimlessly over around point Q, which mostly consists of watching too many shitty made-for-TV movies and eating too many snacks and drinking too much wine and going out too much and shopping too much and generally being an unproductive and irresponsible fake-adult.
The path I need to be on is so simple and achievable, yet it often feels like I am just trapped in a completely different world. Like I don’t know how to get from disastrous and destructive (yet oh so fun) point Q back to where I need to be.
And it’s really really frustrating, because I have made life so much harder for myself than it needs to be.
Irregardless is not a fucking word. You sound illiterate. Stop. The word you are searching for is regardless.
Can you please also learn the different between reign and rein, past and passed, allusion and illusion, elicit and illicit, disinterested and uninterested, loose and lose, affect and effect, alternate and alternative, allowed and aloud, irony and coincidence, compliment and complement, accept and except, and so on?! Words are important, and these are all different words with different meanings.
Oh, and ‘suppose to’ is also incorrect.
Friends help friends go shopping for strap-ons.
And it’s giving me all these feelings about wanting to wife up RIGHTTHISMINUTE and have a hodgepodge family with like 5 kids and lalalalala
Uhhhhh slow down there biological clock…. :l
When I woke up in downtown Calgary on Friday morning, I was in the middle of the evacuation zone in an apartment building with no electricity.
Hey look, VICE wrote a sweet article about my city and our “flood of the century” that happened last week!
It’s a good read with some amazing photos, you should go take a look so you can see what my city has been going through.
Almost nothing fills me with more rage than coming into the kitchen in the morning and seeing someone else (especially someone who isn’t a member of my household) drinking from my coffee mug.
YO THAT IS MY FUCKING KITTEN MUG GET YOUR GRUBBY HANDS AWAY FROM IT
I was just offered baked goods and told that I should “feel free to enjoy them all, because you obviously don’t have a problem being fat!”
I know that I tend to read too much into people’s words, but sometimes I can’t help it with comments like that. I know this lady meant ZERO offense and so I’m not taking any of course. But I am still left thinking about the implications of her words and their (unintentional) meaning.
Like…is it only okay to eat sweets because I’m not overweight? If I was overweight, does that make it not permissible to enjoy whatever foods I want? I know this lady was just being kind offering me some (delicious) baked goods but I can’t help but feel uncomfortable and wish that she had left out the comment about my body size??
ANYONE ELSE?! Discuss your experiences with or feelings and thoughts on the subject of people policing (or reinforcing!) your eating habits based upon your body size.
Not anonymous messages in general.
But anonymous messages from people who tell me I am obliged to act a certain way, speak a certain way, and feel a certain way, yes.
Telling me I HAVE to be kind and polite to strangers online doesn’t feel very different than someone telling me I HAVE to be kind and polite to strangers in real life.
