Confessions

POST A CONFESSION

Hugo Boss

So my fancy suit arrived and its looks great, I purchased the ring. Most important " Found the girl of my dreams". I'm ready to get down on one knee. I know its old fashion, but when you've found true love, you want too make it magical for them. This one is a keeper! Wish Me Luck.

Oblication

I came here from far away. The other coast of Canada. Every time I take a vacation, I feel obligated to visit home even though I never really want to. My parents are there, they are getting old and their health is not great. They are retired and don't have much going on in their lives. I know they won't be around much longer, and my visits brighten up their lives a bit. So I always end up booking a ticket back east to see my parents and the friends I used to smoke weed with in high school... But I want to see the world! I want to go to Japan, Chile, Ukraine, New Zealand! But every time I end up going back to my boring old hometown and seeing the same people and places I grew up around. I know it is my choice to do that. But I don't exactly feel free to choose otherwise. One of these trips I just wanna say fuck it and go to Portugal or something. Anywhere but Nova Scotia! I spent 25 years there, I have visited tons of times. I want to see somewhere new! Damn it why can't I put myself first sometimes!

My financial status

I hope I am not the only one but I have no retirement plan. I am not very talented although most of my life has been spent working hard, trying to stay on top of things financially, but my earning power was never super high and most of my life was spent just paying bills. I have one child that I raised mostly by myself, the father was not living with me although we were married for a long time. He has no money of his own but has been ill most of his life, I also took care of him and now his family takes care of him so our child has to work hard as well. Not only that but I find myself resenting the elite wealthy people who have never had to worry where their next meal was coming from and often share silly anecdotes about their money woes

Good

Walked the climate change today even tho I was alone had no sign and rushed out last minute without showering. An extra body counted for something (hopefully) and I felt great doing it.

Fat middle aged woman

Everyone thinks I’m a lesbian. I dress very casual and look masculine. Happily married many years to a man, I love the looks when I say husband. But it doesn’t bother me at all. Just remember not to judge so fast on outward appearances. Many of us are different from the stereotype.

C-word

My mom has recently been diagnosed with cancer. They don’t know how bad yet, but it is a serious type. I can’t stop thinking that I still need my mom. I know it’s selfish, but my siblings have children and partners. It’s just me. I’m in my early thirties and I have friends and lovers and a good job, but I’ve never felt more alone.

It’s not even October and I’m already dreading Christmas. Wish it could be done away with entirely

This is a very trivial confession

but it's also very strange and I can't explain it. EVERY time I go to the supermarket and there are several lineups of relatively equal length I ALWAYS end up in the line that moves the slowest. Whether it's the person who can't find their money/bank card, forgets their PIN code, cashier needs a price check, customer has a disagreement about the sale price, new cashier comes on board and has to sign in, it never fails. I'm like George Costanza in Seinfeld, time to start doing the "opposite". Choose the line that I normally wouldn't choose at first glance.

Don't Squish Cat

The other morning I let kitty underneath the blankets, tucked her in, and promptly forgot she was there. Later that afternoon, I saw a mysterious lump in my bed so I went to flatten it and kitty let out the most pitiful meow. Luckily I didn't push down to hard, but I felt so bad I took her out to cuddle and gave her a treat. She was purring after so I think I made up for it. When you live with a cat, lumps in your bed are not always what they seem.

I SAW YOU

You liked my dog...a latte.

You politely asked to pet my dog outside of Moja. After introducing you to him, you both...
