Grade 2. One of my classmates bit me in the nuts through my sweatpants.
I hope I am not the only one but I have no retirement plan. I am not very talented although most of my life has been spent working hard, trying to stay on top of things financially, but my earning power was never super high and most of my life was spent just paying bills. I have one child that I raised mostly by myself, the father was not living with me although we were married for a long time. He has no money of his own but has been ill most of his life, I also took care of him and now his family takes care of him so our child has to work hard as well. Not only that but I find myself resenting the elite wealthy people who have never had to worry where their next meal was coming from and often share silly anecdotes about their money woes
But sometimes my life is just bad. I get up and everything is a mess. I really want to try harder, but I have this horrible thought that Greta might be the next Stalin :/
Gotta stop falling in love with every chick I meet
Holy shit, stop the friggin' scream-a-oke every night at english bay!!
Out-of -tune barnacles need a high tide, pronto.
I really hope the vaping industry folds
When someone sends an email at work where there are a number of recipients, I like to see where I am on the list. Did they type my name in first or am I last? Did I come to mind before the boss or before a certain co-worker? Where do you stack up in group emails? First person that comes to mind or the after thought?
Not sure how to tell my boyfriend I'm zoo curious, he's not exactly a wild and crazy guy.
I came here from far away. The other coast of Canada. Every time I take a vacation, I feel obligated to visit home even though I never really want to. My parents are there, they are getting old and their health is not great. They are retired and don't have much going on in their lives. I know they won't be around much longer, and my visits brighten up their lives a bit. So I always end up booking a ticket back east to see my parents and the friends I used to smoke weed with in high school... But I want to see the world! I want to go to Japan, Chile, Ukraine, New Zealand! But every time I end up going back to my boring old hometown and seeing the same people and places I grew up around. I know it is my choice to do that. But I don't exactly feel free to choose otherwise. One of these trips I just wanna say fuck it and go to Portugal or something. Anywhere but Nova Scotia! I spent 25 years there, I have visited tons of times. I want to see somewhere new! Damn it why can't I put myself first sometimes!
I need to change jobs but don't know what to do. I have worked as a mechanic for decades but as I age that is getting too hard on my hands and I can't do it anymore. I don't want to work in customer service because I am highly introverted and talking to people drains my energy too much. I don't want to do office work because it would kill my soul. I am trying to learn to trade stocks but that is very challenging and will take years to learn if I can do it, and I don't have much capital to work with. At this point I almost feel like giving up my apartment and living on the street. But I don't want to do that. I just don't really know where to go from here. I don't think retraining or school is an option because I don't have much money, won't go into debt, and can't think of what to do. I am totally confused and running out of time and getting more anxious. I know we all face similar challenges. I don't mean to sound holier than thou, I just know I am not very well suited to most kinds of work. I could handle being alone and fixing stuff, but that has to stop or I'll have arthritic fingers by the time I'm 40. Thanks for listening.
