Blowing smoke

I don’t partake of any inhalants but with an allergy to cigarette smoke and despite empathy for those addicted - dear friends and family, I would rather everyone take up weed instead. Being stuck drafting behind smokers for years and now bizarre candy smelling vape clouds, I’ll take pot any day! Wish we were handling the economics and administration of legalization better as a country, I really want the stigma and judgement associated with pot to go up in smoke. Secondhand mellow instead of cancers and death, easy choice!

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.

Divesting

Sometimes I browse Craigslist not looking for things to buy but kinda wishing I had something I could sell. Getting rid of stuff brings me joy.

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.

Loser Claims

I'm not going to make any claims of being a loser, and an utter failure. I figure someday I may end up surprising myself, and I would hate to have to eat my own words.

Puppy love

I discovered my diaries from Grade 12. I read about the first time I fell in love. We knew eachother 4 days before saying ILU. FOUR days. From my entries, I now understand why I have dating anxiety and abandonment issues. I wish I could go back and tell my sweet innocent self to leave that guy who clearly was treating her like crap. The same experience seemed to groundhog for the next guy. Now that I am in my 40s, I think I now understand how to identify these broken guys and avoid them!! Here is to no more broken hearts

Depressed confession

I turned 60 this past August I'm on government disability only have one friend plus my siblings when I turned 60 it hit me, I've wasted my life never accomplished anything being on government disability for mental health (though at least ive never been hospitalized) doesn't give you much opportunities in life....never financially secure because it's expensive to live here even with my part time job, never be able to date....& even not into their music heard that Eddie Money did and today Ric Ocasek, I'm tired of hearing people dying......I don't want to die....I don't want to die in my sleep especially by myself alone in my apartment like I am every single damn night of my life:(

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.

Gossip

To the ladies at the office who whisper & gossip: Remember when your back is turned, the person you're gossiping with is gossiping about you. Listen to how someone speaks - if they're talking shit to you about someone, most likely they're talking shit about you to someone else.

I SAW YOU

Vital encounter on the 99

We were sitting on the bus—you, in the back row, facing forward, reading The Straight. My friend...
