Covid19 and selfishness. Both seem to be contagious.
Everyone please take a moment to think about what you’re doing. We’re all in this together.
I am tired of celebrities telling us all how we can do better, like them, by staying at home. I have no problem with the staying home concept, but I hate hearing about it as they post from their mansions. Stop applauding yourselves. You all have so much wealth staying home isn’t a hardship. Again, not saying people should go out, but i’d rather hear from someone in a 600 sq ft apartment talking about their choice to stay home than some smug actress getting her damn food helicoptered into her 30 acre property. Also... most people can’t afford not to work, or will get evicted and starve. Celebrities, stop applauding yourselves for having enough money to make lifestyle choice most cannot afford. You sound as out of touch as Marie Antoinette.
I’m upset that many people are complaining that they’re being asked to not ski, mtn bike, climb, or do other higher risk activities right now. These facebook groups have hundreds of people saying they’ll do what they want and this is such a sacrifice to their mental health. WTF. There are 1000s of people laid off, with more coming each week, all stressed about the possibility of months without money. All the people working in healthcare who are going to be overworked and stressed and exposed to the virus every day. So many people who are immunocompromised and on heightened alert and trapped at home. All the small business owners not sure if they can survive more than a month of closure. But screw them all right? Cause you need another trip to ski climb mtn bike with your crew. Going to other towns, pumping gas, hanging out in groups, leaving a trail of who knows what, posting pics, setting an example to ignore all the messages to stay home. And if you get hurt and need search and rescue, paramedics, nurses, doctors, a hospital bed... screw them right?
I’m tired of these same stupid names you hear these days. Cody, Blake, Ethan, Chelsea....meh. Hailey, Kailey and Bailey sound like the biggest bunch of Queen bees. Whatever happened to good old names like Frank, Sally, Albert, George, Sasha, Henry, Klaus or Otto?
I want to shake each self-involved twat that complains about the child learning to walk in the apartment above them. It’s a beautiful thing that won’t last for long, so be a kind soul and be appreciative of your own life.
I have few friends. That’s never really bothered me because I’m a bit introverted and I’ve never been that social. But as I’ve gotten older the few important friends in my life have drifted away. Either they moved away, had kids late in life and so couldn’t hang out anymore, or else we just grew apart. So now I’ve got no one left that I can really talk to about things going on with me. I’m presently single again. I’ve got adult children but they have enough of their own things to deal with and they don’t need to hear the innermost thoughts of their parent. So sometimes I come on here just so that I can feel like I’m actually talking to someone else, not just to myself. Thanks for listening.
I must have a soul mate
We can’t be together
Because I smoke pot
And he prefers the harder things
He wanted to get married and have a family
I wanted to become someone worth marrying
Before I had a family
I had no idea that i’d have to choose one
Over the other
How unfair to live a life
Healing myself from traumas
Brought on by men
To vigilantly protecting myself from
Men only to reach a stage
Where Men no longer want me
And I’m dying to be loved by them.
Looking into my aging eyes reminds them
Of their own mortality.
I’ve always loved the maturity
Of an older man
Yet I cant compete with the reassurance
Of a much younger woman.
I wanted to be cool for him
So we could live a cool life
Together and grow old
In an unconventional way
He wanted a smaller version
Same smile, same hair
But with a smaller
More showcaseable body
I wanted a smart man
Being smart is very attractive
And he married someone who really
Wanted to get married.
Smart men don’t need to stay single
Being single is more work
And that isn’t smart
I wanted to be independent
So we could be equal partners
He wanted to feel needed
And knowing that I could
Do it without him
Made him insecure
I worked on myself
I stopped comparing myself
To other women.
But he liked it when I was jealous
It made him feel powerful
The drama that I worked so
Dilligently to remove from my life
Was the substance he built
His existence around
It gave him a sense of purpose
I wanted to find someone
Who has seen some shit
Yet still lives in the light
But those men are pieces
That fit someone else’s puzzle
I wanted to find true love
When I’d really grown up
Only I grew up into
An era full of porn and polyamory
I accept that I was never meant
To bear children of my own
There was a reason I couldn’t picture it
But I wanted someone to love me so much that they wanted
To have children with me
I can live without the children
But without that love?
It never occurred to me that I’d have to.
I don't yet personally know anyone that has this virus.
I live alone. No more roommates (thank the sky friends).
I fixed that old espresso machine earlier this year.
I have enough to pay my rent.
I have food and can get food.
I turn on my tap and there's clean water.
I take a shit in a washroom, alone, usually on the internet.
I have the internet.
The fact that i'm canadian and live in a country that will not be completely devastated by this virus.
Board games with solitaire option.
Everyone reading this from their homes where they should be and where they should stay.
I'm so sick of hearing about the corona...however, the amount of jokes this gave me/us is amazing haha
Once in our twenties my wife and I were hiking Lynn Peak and we were taking it slow on the descent. This couple in their 40s kept passing us every time we stopped for a minute or two. It was a bit like the tortoise and the hare because we were faster (when moving) so we'd pass them and then stop and they'd pass us again. It started to feel like a bit of a race. So finally we just started running down the mountain. They saw us fly past them and immediately broke into a run to try and keep up. Or maybe they assumed we were being chased by a bear. Anyway it was hilarious to look back at them running full speed down the slope. We won.
