I really hope the vaping industry folds
I might have started a rumour about a girl that lives in the same dorm building as me,...it’s because so many guys kept asking about her.
In the line up of a grocery store, an older woman decided to racially attack another woman for being a black immigrant, telling her to get out of Canada, among other things . It took a few seconds for me to realise what was going on . I asked the woman who was on the receiving end of the racist tirade if, what I heard was correct. It was correct, I felt sick. I couldn't stand by and allow this racist to walk away thinking it was ok to treat people this way so, I confronted her, telling her her racist words were disgusting, shameful, nasty and malicious. It didn't make a difference to her mindset, but I wanted her to know there are people in this world who are not afraid to stand up to racists and bigots like herself. I returned to the line up apologising for her behaviour.
I grew up in another country as an immigrant from Ireland and we were not liked because we were Irish. I remember at a very young age being called names and my parents defending themselves . Bombers, dirty Mick's, gippos, and pikeys to name just a few. So today really hit a nerve and it stirred up some not so happy memories.
I came to Canada several years ago. This is the second country that I've immigrated to . I've made Vancouver my home and I love it here, but today I felt such sadness that here, I personally witnessed such hatred, intolerance, racism and bigotry.
Is it a thrift store, or a grift store? Seriously. Their pricing is out of control. It’s less expensive to buy fast fashion and dollar store items brand new. Why are we being punished for not creating more garbage on the planet? Boycott VV!!!
I'm seriously considering having to vote Conservative. Believe me, this sucks. I am a lifelong lefty, feminist supporter, and a blossoming environmentalist opposed to expansion of petro development. I am also a longtime outdoors person, gun owner, and supporter of small business. I see my NDP hypnotized by intersectionalism and the condescending tokenism of superficial, visible "diversity," the Liberals attempting to shrug off Trudeau's breath-taking attempt to pervert the justice system to save a big Liberal donor, and the Greens happily accepting racist NDP defectors.
I'm throwing up in my mouth at even browsing the right-wing remainder, but uggghhhhhh I have to consider it. Hurggghhhghghghg.
Me and my ex broke up in January of this year. I had a date with a woman recently. We had about 3 coffee dates and she asked me to cook her dinner. So I made dinner and in the middle of the date she picked up her phone and talked to another guy for 20 minutes. I had to phone her cell in order to get her to stop talking to him. She says "I gotta go I got another call" and I said "Can we talk now" Well that killed it. I asked her to leave. Man I cannot believe the blatant rude behavior on her part. I think I am done with dating here.
I am not voting in the election next month.
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!
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
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.
