I'm so tired. I have little to complain about, I'm grateful to be able to work. But working life is so exhausting, I don't have the energy to be happy in the evenings, and I spend most of the weekend recovering and sleeping to prepare for another week of work. Have things always been like this?
Why do soundmen hate guitars so much?
Every band seems to have one.
Today I attended a high school sporting event. As someone without a family or children it seemed, strange, not odd, but strangely interesting just how much "sports" seems to consume peoples lives.
When travelling or reading the world news I see all sorts of things that need to be fixed. The fix needs to come from the everyone and it needs to happen now. We need to set and example for kids and we need them to learn to be leaders today.
The problems we're facing in the world, (where consumerism and status it at an all time high) is the majority of people as just looking for satisfying distractions in life. Why are we bring up our kids to "have fun, play team sports, going to malls etc etc. Why are we, old and young all not working together to fix these problems we have created. Why are take-out containers still around and acceptable? Don't get me started on plastic waste, or fast fashion, or how soon we won't be able to grow real food. No, no, no. Some people say, kids need to be kids, bullshit. We don't have time for that now. Everyone, myself included have failed at being a good human and nurturing this world instead of destroying it. All just so life can be easy, carefree and so we can have stuff. oh, and team sports on weekends.
I'm a dude and I've known these type of weird toxic guys my whole life.And no we don't like them either.
Never once. I should not have presented myself as having anything to offer. I didn't think it through. I only followed my heart without a thought for the real world. I never blamed you. I always thought it was something I'd done. I just wanted to know why. The simple answer was I didn't deserve you and that's probably the truth. Perhaps it could have played out better but I don't blame you. I'm not a real player anyway. The sidelines serves my purposes well enough. I'm too afraid of getting hurt. Hopefully I'll live unscathed by drama and keep my misery to myself. Peace & Love. All the best to the future...
I’m pissed off that I was verbally assaulted on the skytrain at Yale town station by an older man with orange glasses.
Situation: I get in the train, stand by the door as I’m getting off at city center (1 stop) he bumps into me and then starts immediately calling me a bitch and getting in my face before walking off. At that point I could handle it because whatever he’s just an angry old man. But then he got off the train and followed me up the escalator swearing at me, calling me fat bitch, etc (as I’m 5’1” and XS lol....) and being incredibly rude and shit not a single person tried to help me out or stop him from swearing at me. I’m so disappointed in transit users. Anyway, I didn’t feel safe and I have a question. In that situation if I pepper sprayed him would I have been in trouble by the police ? I was so close. Instead I pulled out my phone to record him and that shut him up so fast and he ran off.
I lived there when Starbucks was a strip club called Uranus, when Tim Hortons was Slickity Jims, when Kingsgate was empty except Buy Low and an insurance company, and looked like a mall that was going to be knocked down. When there was a dollar slice pizza that sat over the old Gracie Jui Jitsu.
I was sad when I got renovicted a few years ago.
Last week I saw on the news that the area is about to go through a 13% property tax increase.
I was sad to get renovicted, but I am also glad I didn't hold on too long to a changing neighbourhood. Years later I have found a similar one that's in rebuild, that's sleepy like Mt Pleasant once was, and where many of the faces I used to see there have migrated.
Times change, Mount Pleasant changed.
I attended the third Burnaby South debate a few days ago.
After 2 hours of having to constantly hear her right wing bullshit ,Right at the end of the debate, I yelled out to Laura Lynn Tyler Thompson and called her a Fascist.
It felt great.
Humans rate up. Reptilians rate down. Be honest.
You know they say the grass isnt greener on the otherside..
