Creepy Invasive Landlords

Screw them. Seems with the housing crunch landlords think they can push boundaries because it's hard or stressful to move. My current one started asking personal questions, emailing me when I was on a road trip asking "where I was, am I with family?" and phoned my emergency contact but didn't leave a message. ALL phones have caller display. Uggh. I did not engage. Gave my notice with plenty of notice. And even then they made a snide comment. Don't let landlords have power over you.

No more beer

I quit drinking nearly two months ago. But I kind of broke my sobriety and had one beer with my dinner yesterday. That one pint didn’t taste so good and made me want to puke my guts out. I realize now that beer or any alcohol is not for me so I’m just going to keep embracing my sober life the way it is.

A thought

Has the Internet became so essential? I think people would rather go without food than without Internet.

Real Advice

My advice to any attractive woman who is perpetually single is to look inwards rather than outwards with regards to blame for why you are single. You have to lower your expectations and accept what life gives you. Your future may not have a Prince Charming but may have someone who works in construction or a bakery. Life is what you make of it and if you are to be single or married the onus is on you and you alone to make it happen.

Fun wanted

I'm not having any fun. I want to let loose somehow, to do something different. I am so inhibited, I don't do half the things I want to because I worry what others think. I've lived my whole life just trying not to bother people, trying to stay out of the way, to not be seen. Which might not be a bad thing in ways but I think I do it to a fault, where I don't really go for what I want or assert myself. I want to do something different, to live a little, to sin, but I don't know where to start.


... tax protest case. We're clearly kept as chattel on a plantation, massa demands his cut of your wages, just like Frederick Douglas said---massa let black slaves work, so long as they gave massa his cut.

There are bounderies now

My sister had 1 year of sobriety under her belt finally. I was so proud of her (still am, of course) and couldn't believe what am amazing change she had made. A week ago she decided to go out and get drunk. She's been drinking ever since.. I'm expecting my first baby any day now.. I always had a feeling this would happen but was praying it wouldn't. I don't understand why she had to do it now. Why now of all times? She's not a nice drunk. She screams, slams doors, throws things.. I won't subject my baby to that type of toxic environment. I'm working up the courage to tell her that if she's drunk when I go into labour she's not welcome at the hospital when I deliver the baby. There's no way in hell I'd let her hold my baby when she can barely stand or speak without slurring. I've always been intimidated by her because she can get so nasty. I have a hard time being up front and standing my ground but now that there's an innocent baby involved I know I have to do what's right. It doesn't matter if she's in the wrong, when I tell her my delivery/hospital bounderies she's going to flip and call me every name in the book. I guess I always felt like agreeing with people simply to avoid conflict was the best option for my anxiety but this is different this time. I have to draw the line for my baby girl. She has to know there are bounderies. I'm so nervous to tell her.

“I don’t want to talk about it”

Because you don’t want to talk about it - “it” being feelings - I assume that you feel nothing and I act accordingly. What other choice do I have?

Life is like

A painting on a wall. No matter how many times, you keep trying to straighten it. Somehow, its still always a bit crooket?


Reminds me of an old song, " she aint pretty, she just looks that way". It's whats inside that counts! More people should see that. Is no one honest anymore?
