Lazy Lovers

After staying home for this long, it's doubtful that I will accept "Netflix n' chill" as a date again.

Dreams of a New Me

As someone who has struggled with weight my whole life, I wished I had used the past 1.5 years of COVID as an opportunity to lose weight. I know I am the lucky few who saw improved mental health during the pandemic, because I was able to work from home and have less FOMO. I got back three hours a day because I no longer had to commute, and I could eat healthier because I live with my parents and they also have a fridge and pantry full of healthy, nutritious foods. I wish I could go back to work and dating in the fall with a new, fit body, but that won’t be the case. I keep dreaming of what could have been. Going back to my old habits and still having the self loathing and low self esteem makes me so sad. If only I could go back in time and use my extra time each day more wisely!

Warm beer alert

Whenever I buy cans of beer from the "cold section" of a lot of private liquor stores, the beer ends up being warm. At least at the BCL, it's actually legitimately cold. Saving a buck... but the buck stops here. I like COLD beer. Not... semi-cold beer.

I fell for a penpal.

A few time casual hookup. A most considerate non-committal dater with everything out in the open. I stopped talking to them a couple months ago and the last month they've faded from my mind. But these last two nights I have been having nightmares and they're in them for some reason. Why am I being haunted? Nightmares and dating aside, I just want my full seven hours. That's all I'm asking.

Salad Summer

I'll be the first to admit, I don't eat as many greens as I should. But, when summer hits, I typically eat quite a bit of salad, even if I eat out. I recently noticed that there seems to be this trend of adding arugula to other meals, like on avocado toast for example. I'm not a fan, because unfortunately and I have no idea why but arugula just tastes like gasoline to me.

Ebye Ebay

I finally closed down my Ebay account after 10 years. Pretty much almost everything on there is ridiculously overpriced. It's really not worth paying so much money for a small item, let alone having to pay shipping and handling in American dollars. No thanks. So I'm done with that site.

Only kids for rich celebrities

I cannot help but feel that Canada is falling apart. Only rich people can afford to have kids. Nobody else can afford a house or the necessities to create a stable environment for them. What a terrible mess... and everyone is politically fighting each other instead of working against the causes of it. The government and corporations hate us.

Masks Optional

With masks now optional indoors, I judge those who choose to opt-out of wearing them and steer clear. Sorry, BC government, but I do not agree with you about lifting mask rules. I will be wearing my mask for a long time coming. I work with children, and yes, children CAN transmit.

A first

A gentleman I began seeing confessed he was married on our third date. Though he insisted it was just a “formality”, I have zero interest in any type of adultery, so I ran away as fast as I could. No regrets about doing so, but I am still sad as he was the first person I could see myself falling for in quite a while. Thanks again, dating apps.
