Why?

I work in a large company and sometimes we have to take training courses. Many people I don’t know because they are at other sites. Why does the teacher always ask us to divulge personal shit about ourselves to the class? I don’t want to tell everyone how many pets I have or what I do on the weekends. Just teach the class and leave me alone.

Goal

I kind of wish I lost my virginity when I was in high school, but I was very girl shy so that didn’t happen. When I was in my late 20s, I had a goal at the forefront of my mind: to lose my virginity before I turned 30. I achieved that goal at 28 and have felt very satisfied ever since.

Lonely

I'm really goddamn lonely, and have been for so long.

Don’t Personalize

Generally I get along very well with my co-workers. But of all the 20 people that I work with, there are three who are just plain weird. They come off as very cold, stand offish and rude. They’re nice to everyone else except me and only say hello to me if I take initiative. It used to bother me a lot and really affected my work performance, so then I decided to go and seek counseling. My counsellor that I spoke with gave me the best advice on how to deal with workplace culture. Don’t personalize. You can’t get everyone to like you and you don’t own their problems. The Workplace is like a family and the ones whom aren’t your favorites are like weird cousins. I keep in mind that I’m getting paid to do my job, then clock out and go home. You’re not here to win friends over, but let’s say if you drawn to certain people and happen to become close friends with someone at work, then that’s a bonus. But at the end of the day, the job is what matters. I just go in and do my job, live and let live.

I used to be...

..one of those people that complained about the cost of living and the social dynamic of Vancouver. I was blinded by my love of this city to notice what I was giving up for the privilege of living here. Now that I have left, I am appreciative that I had the fortunate luck of living in one of the WORLD's best cities for over 10 years. To the people that are worried about the future, enjoy the now, take a deep breath and realize while you may not get the chance to enjoy Vancouver for the rest of your life, you are one of the lucky that at least experienced it. As for me, I found a city with amazing food, culture, some of the best snowboarding there is, and it is a fraction of the cost....but I'll never say where :)

Fat :(

I get called fat a lot by other people in school and on social media but I'm not that fat. I'm only twenty five pounds overweight. I dont want to go to gym no more but I have to cause I want to lose a bit of weight. Maybe five pounds or so. But they point at my fat and call me pregnant which I'm not, or fatty or make pig noises at me. I try to be positive but it's hard. I eat more when I feel hurt.

In love with my best friend but he doesn't know

I am in love with my best friend. I only started to see them romantically in the last year. But now I cant stop wanting to be my best friends girlfriend. I see him date a lot of girlfriends. But none have been serious. I started to see him in a different light when I had been cheated on with the boyfriend I was dating at the time. I was so hard but my best friend made me feel so comfortable and helped me get through that depressed mood I was having when my boyfriend had cheated on me. Is it werid that I want my best friend now. He is nice, funny, athletic, open minded and spontaneous. But he's dating someone right now it's been about a week since he started dating her it normally lasts about a month or so. I feel like I want to tell him I love him but I dont know if he feels the same way. And I don't want to lose him as a friend. What should I do?

I kind of ghosted you and not a day goes by that I wish I didn't you are the most perfect person in the whole world I'm so sorry

I met you when I was going to school. I didn't see you at first cause I was so focused on my personal life. Caught up in studying my textbook, going home to take care of my family member and cooking dinner. I was studying to be a baker. There you were folding uniforms. It was part of your job. I didn't actually notice you until a week after school started. I first thought wow your so hot. You worked as a cashier for the bookstore but also a dishwasher at the campus. I started talking in a few words each day. Only hi, good morning, have a great day, bye. Over time I would talk to you a bit more each time. I started looking forward to talking to you. Then I would go out of my way so that I can I have enough time to talk to you. I wanted to be asked for my phone number. Every time I saw you I was happy. Basically a year goes by. I'm graduating and I dont have the courage to ask you for your number, even though I really wanted to. I show you my graduation dress I made it was purple and sparkly my favorite color. After that day about 3-4 months go by. I haven't seen you, but I still cant stop thinking about you I feel like I'm going crazy. More time goes by. Almost a year goes by before I see you again. I'm starting culinary school a block away from my old campus. I still couldn't stop thinking about you. I know I am crazy, but maybe not because you remembered me. It's like time has stopped it was so easy talking to you and you made me feel so happy again. I would make a letter with a ribbon on it basically every day. Back and forth I would use my break in between class so I could talk to you even if just for a minute. Two months pass before the day I have been wanting comes. I waited for you to finish your work then I took the train with you. I felt really bad for you because you just had knee surgery even though you are young. You asked for my phone number. Omg I was so happy. We text each other for a while. It was around Thanksgiving that I stopped all of a sudden texting you. I got a new phone. It was like I had fallen off the face of the earth. I was a ghost. A year and a half goes by. Not one day without thinking about you. But I am a shitty person. I said a lie I cant take back now, I'm not sick anymore. The first time I ran into a year and a half later it's so awkward. I feel like you are putting up an invisible wall between you and me. I dont blame you. I was a ghost also a slight bitch. I went out by ambulance. It was a panic attack not lung problems. I didn't actually go on a date with you ever so probably liking you was just all in my head. But I am glad you are doing better. You will probably never see this but thanks for making my day everytime I saw you. Thanks for talking to me. Thanks for being the most perfect person in the whole world. I hope you stay healthy and happy. :)

I SAW YOU

What the heck are sundries anyway?!

You: a taller, more handsome Cillian Murphy doppelgänger. ...
