Search confessions


A customer offered me a job today. He has eyeballed me in the past and he talks highly of me. He said "I like you" today. He said he would quote me right now, but I didn't let him. It was in front of everyone at the front desk. I got his number to call him and talk if I want to. This is the second job offer from a customer in a month and I might entertain it. It seems like it might fit a change in my life. I work in a shoe store..


My partner keeps on telling people that they "retired" from work. They did not retire, they quit a lousy job, Retiring indicates that you have some other form of income and do not have to work any longer. Just quitting and not having any income is not really retiring.....just saying......patooty.....

Time to eat

I am so hungry that I can eat a horse. I cannot wait until my roommate moves his ass out of the kitchen while always working from home.

I judge

People who post pictures on SNS of their babies/kids that are not old enough to be able to understand anything about being online. Thank god for not being born in this generation. I would have hated my parents for the rest of my life if they had done that of me.

Pandemic thoughts

I don’t think I’ll be comfortable being around crowds or busy places ever again. And I am okay with that.

I Can't Understand You!

I have listened to music way too loud for a way too long on my phone. Now I cannot understand when people are saying to me when there is background noise and they have on a thick cloth mask. Add in plexi-glass and I'm done. I just nod and grin. It's me, not you. Thank you for wearing a mask (for real) for all workers that have to wear a mask all day, you are awesome. Sorry, I can't understand what you are saying. I am not trying to add frustration to your day.

The thrill is gone

My one lifelong love, music, sweet music, no longer gives me any pleasure. I don't know what happened. I don't want to listen to it anymore, I don't enjoy playing guitar like I used to. I have had many hobbies and interests come and go, but music has been my main passion for decades. And now it is fading. I find this terrifying.


I've shipped weed to my place of work. That's legal, right?

Thank You

This part of the Georgia Straight site has exploded since COVID blossomed and tonight of all nights, I decide to drink some G&T's and read all about you. I'm not a drinker by any stretch (2 or three times a year at most) but I thought that the day after my birthday and being all by myself was fine. (hot tip: Hit up the ibuprofen before drinking!) So tonight I want to thank each and every one of you because I'm drunk and sentimental and bless each and every one of you for living as best you can. I'm going to listen to cheesy 80's love songs like True by Spandau Ballet and think that every person deserves love and consideration, fully aware that we hide this from one another every day and hopeful that YOU find someone that can give you all this love and consideration and care that you're worth and so. much. more. I'm drunk and it doesn't matter because I love you people. Honest. You're so very precious and loveable in the specific. Take care of yourself, beautiful.

What do you do

When nothing makes sense to you anymore and you may have lost the will to live. I simply dont see the point anymore. It will leave food for others. Too many people on this planet to survive much longer anyway. Taking one for the team. Your Welcome. There should be an option available for people that dont need to be here anymore. I would gladly take that option. Gladly Save our dieing planet.


Breka on 4th. Eyes locked more than once

I think it was B.C. day around 8pm. I was riding my bike up from the beach to Breka Bakery on 4th...


New to the Georgia Straight. A space for sharing memories and remembering our loved ones.
