Search confessions

Job hunting

Taking a break from the cover letter writing, resume customizing, company researching and interview preparing. I’m drained. I’m the kind of person who can imagine myself working at each company. Mentally I can visualize myself there. And then I get the bots notifying me I didn’t make the cut. Dead ends after hours of energy output. For anyone looking for a job like me, I feel your pain and hope that we find a fit soon, at the salary we deserve. For those that had their jobs handed to them, because of their dad, friend or husband, I have no respect for you as you’ve ridden off the position of others without doing any of the heavy lifting.

They "broke down in tears."

I wish this expression in the media would disappear. Why is a person "breaking down" when they express emotion publicly. It's so culturally biased and old school. Apparently a British stiff upper lip is still valued.

Off the sidewalks cyclists!

You were cycling down the middle of a crowded sidewalk, (helmetless, of course). I was feeling grumpy and chose not to step aside. I bumped you with my shoulder and you got really angry. Someone reminded you that cycling on the sidewalk is illegal and dangerous. You threatened to beat me up. Luckily I'm too old to beat up, you said. I may be old, but common sense and the law are on my side: Cyclists: stay off the sidewalks.

Another Rainy Day

When I have to say "FUCK Translink". 20 minutes late to work; 40 minutes late getting home. Thanks a lot.

Why can't I move on ?

I have lost many friends to death and drugs. My ex and I broke up a year ago and I always thought we would stay close as he was my best friend and told me he would be. He has a new girlfriend ( whom he started dating a week after telling me he loved me and would reset ) and has completely stopped talking to me. Which he should right ? It has been a year and I can't stop crying , and ruminating, I am depressed and ill. It just doesn't make sense to me that the love of my life is with some one else and doesn't care for me after 5 years of being best friends. I feel nauseous , illogical and I just wish I could move on.

In high school, I was bullied, and I was a bully.

In high school, I was bullied, and I was a bully. All of the bullying awareness messages made me remember. I feel pain when I remember being bullied. I feel shame at having bullied a fellow student.

White trash

I wanna be a white trash thousandair and I Ain't got much and I don't care. Count your cash and kiss my ass! This whole damn world gonna know I been here. I got two zig-zags and you know I’ll share! I’m everyone from nowhere, White trash thousandair!

Day trippin'

I don't have too much sympathy for US businesses complaining that the PCR test requirements stop Canadians from popping over the border to "buy milk, gas, or pick up a parcel". Let these small time tax avoiders continue supporting Canada a little longer!

One Time In Band Camp

I really did stick something up my pussy. But it was my first tampon not a flute (sigh).
