You know why I like other cultures?

Because you don't have to be thin, skinny, PC, pretentious and do 20 different sports to fit in while mimicking whatever is happening on Twitter. You can be fat, ugly, work 8 hour days and be gayfully married while owning property. Other cultures are actual real and authentic. They watch out for one another and do not sell their real estate to bidders all over the globe to turn it into a stock market out of the reach out ordinary hard working people in that culture. Whatever we have here, it is just marketing shit and I hate a lot of the people that live here who shallowly emanate it. Crooked. Corrupt. Not in the slightest bit worth looking up to by "developing" nations. Some less fortunate nations simply need health care to get them to live long and fulfilling lives. Their lifestyles, however, are mainly perfect.

Missing my fuck friend

But he was a bit of an ass so I needed to end it. The build up to us meeting was so hot then the regret after wasn’t worth it anymore. Here’s to a better passionate friend next try.

Low-Grade OCD?

I'm not a stingy guy - I'll happily grab the bill if you and I meet for a coffee or pint, then put it out of my mind. I don't obsess over who "owes" whom, just as long as things don't get too uneven. But if I find out that I paid $6 for something in the grocery store that I could've gotten for $4 at the store down the road, I seethe for hours! I just feel taken advantage of... What's that about?

My age is showing

I am on LinkedIn all day at work instead of Facebook. Yep. I know.

Anonymous Encounters

Here's a legit confession: I am a woman, and I miss engaging in anonymous encounters with men. Such things are not just for married or gay men, you know. Because women can do no right by society, especially when it comes to expressing their sexuality, those quiet encounters can be a special place to express one's own truth. I pine for those days, but youth is no longer on my side, and I can no longer participate in something so dangerous (as it most certainly is for women.) Women, get your kicks while you are still young enough to get 'em.

Tell no one

As someone who has had thoughts of killing myself since I was like 10, I wish there were somewhere I could talk about it without risking arrest.

I am sort of worried about the future

I just read about an 83 year old cleaning buildings to help support herself... Not in Canada... yet. The way things are going-- with how much less our money can buy us today-- and how much we work to support ourselves certainly makes me worried. Same in the US. I think we will actually deal with poverty here and the social safety net we have will burst due to our debt and politics.

But I am a positive person

So it is always hard to read all of these confessions. A lot of the time I end up eating popcorn sprinkled with butter and salt, but it is as if the salt has fallen into my eyes, as I want to cry. I then rub my face and get butter all over it from my buttery and salt popcorn. These negative confessions really bring me down. This is a positive space!

Dad shoe

I don't know what a dad shoe is but apparently I wear them. I don't care what shoe I wear as long as it doesn't hurt my feet.


I didn’t think it could happen again, but it did. I was resigned for so long and so guarded. She’s thoughtful and kind. She’s helped me so much. She’s beautiful and funny. She tells me these things too, and I’m coming around to believing her. She makes me feel good about myself, and I’m growing because of her.


Breka on 4th. Eyes locked more than once

I think it was B.C. day around 8pm. I was riding my bike up from the beach to Breka Bakery on 4th...
