My laundry room stunk like weed!

Couldn't figure it out until I realized that joint I couldn't find last week was in the pocket of the shirt I just washed.

So conflicted

Like so many of us, I’m considering moving completely away from the LM. The whirlwind pace of changes taking place here over the past 10 years is finally driving me away from my beloved home town. On the one hand I still love it so much and will miss it terribly, but I think that I’m already missing it because my hometown is gone. Where I presently live is becoming 100% devoted to the desires of foreign investors and tourists. The necessary services that we locals actually need are being eliminated one by one, so that all that’s left are touristy boutiques and coffee shops and expensive restaurants. I now have to go further and further away to get the things I used to be able to get just by walking or riding my bike. It’s not the livable place it once was. All of our beautiful natural places like the forests and beaches and parks, are no longer a place of refuge for me to escape to. They’re overrun with crowds of loud tourists tromping over the vegetation and snapping 1000’s of pictures while talking at the top of their lungs all at the same time. It’s hell! But the trouble is that I can’t figure out where there is left to move to that won’t be so far away from my family and friends that I’d be even unhappier there than I am here. A quandary that I guess so many of us are in as we are colonized.

I keep checking my head

Spent all day at Synagogue for Yom Kippur. I'm not at all religious or spiritual and haven't set foot in temple for any service for over a decade. Tonight, even after a shower and washing my hair....I still feel the yarmulke on my head. I have no idea why, it's a mystery.

Thank you laundry room honesty

I live in a great friendly building. Had a multi-task exhausting day and forgot my laundry card in the dryer of the busy laundry room tonight and admit I wondered if it would still be there when I realized an hour later. There it was (and the clothes were dry). Small mercies like that means a lot to me.

Ontario & Quebec

Must be nice to get thier politics talked about every day here on Vancouver TV newscasts at 6 pm

Flat earth

The earth is fucking round! Tell me how the earth became flat! I dare ya. There is certainly a theory about how earth became round!!! Which makes sense!! Every other planet moon and star is round...why the hell would earth be flat????

LandlordBC

It's amazing how LandlordBC justifies the 4.5% rent increase next year. Did any of you read it? It's probably still in the top 10 to the right of this confession. Whose wages grew this year? Mine didn't. Even if they did I'd get maybe $100ish more a month? Great! That will go to the expensive food in the store I have to buy. Heck! Maybe I could even afford brand name for fuck sakes. Just because you see a stat that may show that wages increased this year for some people that does NOT mean you can take it from us right away. We NEED these wage increases. We have been fucked in the ass by the Liberals so hard that we need time to heal.

I want to hear more

About Jordan Peterson and nobody wants to talk about him.. oh wait. Everyone is talking about him. Take that lefties.

Supply And Demand

With legalization coming, how many developers are thinking about adding a grow room in new homes?

It's Touchy

Can be awkward when you have a friend that you like but can't vouch for when it comes to employment.

Cognitive Psychology 101.

Vancouver, we need to talk about how you portray yourselves as the most open-minded people on earth while trying to contain anybody that opposes your views . You're trying squeeze people into a mold and create clones of yourselves while pretending to be individuals. The adults call this cognitive dissonance. I'm surprised your not all walking around slapping yourselves in the heads out of the fact that you're walking contradictions. I can't help but think that's why there's so many barking mad people running around this city because you're driving yourselves crazy. Take a step back and try to see it objectively, it's really crazy behaviour. Get better soon.

DTES Market Pot Seizure

does not surprise me. This is what they ended up doing to the people dealing pot at the Art Gallery. It seems like once some cops get a taste for kicking people like this, there's not much that can be done to stop them; I don't think that the Mayor or even Chief of Police can point blank tell them to stop enforcing the pot laws. Whether charges would be approved or not is another issue, but that is how things escalated at the Art Gallery---the seizure of anything that vendors put out along with threats of trafficking charges. So, this is what legalization will look like---anyone who doesn't have at least six figures to start a storefront or licensed grow is going to continue in jail, unless they want to go from being an owner/operator to making hourly wage from some large corporate outfit. For people who do have the six figures, depending on how things play out, especially when it comes to incorporating, selling shares, etc. there is a lot of room to grow. But for those who don't have the ante to sit at the table and play, it might as well still be Prohibition, albeit version 2.0.

New World Order

My workplace is a great example of all the worst things about globalization.

I love him

When we met we were both 18 and I was a struggling student so our lifestyles matched. Now I graduated and have been working for a few years and bought my own condo and hes still in the same spot. He lives for a week at his parents house, couch surfs at friends, and then stays with me for a few days and it goes on and on. He has the same job at the restaurant he had at 18 and I just think we're moving in opposite directions. I encourage him to get a trade or some certificate to make more money but he won't. I want a house someday and kids and I can't do it on my own. I don't understand how he has no money at the end of the month when all he pays for is food. I am embarrassed that I pay for everything because a relationship should be 50/50. I love him but I deserve someone better.

Toss up

Not sure who's going to die first - my dad or my dog.

I SAW YOU

Sept long weekend

Crossfit pub run. You, a tall beautiful blonde. Pink running shorts and headband. Our eyes...
