Bitter sweet summer

I am so conflicted by the arrival of summer. I love the sun, and feel the city lift noticeably. But when I see all the people enjoying each others company, it sharpens the pang of loneliness

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 SAW YOU
