Disconnect

If you had waited a bit longer you would have received a reply. The thing is, it no longer matters to me when folks choose to end a conversation with me. I'm not fussy about that. That's entirely up to them. It's all about setting up mutial expectations on communication with folks you have relationships with.

Keeping in touch with my family

Is always a gut wrenching experience. I've just never been good enough, cool enough, glamorous enough, accomplished enough, well traveled enough, conspicuous consumer-ed enough. At least my dog likes me for me. Thank God for dogs.

Smoking and eating

Smoking is not the greatest habit in the world, but I go through several packs in order to help me digest my food. Not sure what else to say, but that’s pretty much the gist of it.

Modern retirement planning

It is almost impossible to retire with a middle class income. I say almost because I did visualize myself doing so. I'm lucky in several respects: my family isn't overly dysfunctional, I graduated university in the years before the cost sky-rocketed, I choose a career that has always been in demand and pays well, what few relationships I have had all ended relatively cleanly (no kids, no alimony), and I've lived a spartan life. There was that possibility, I thought, that with another decade, I'd be able to actually retire. But I recently realized that I don't have the skills to do what I have done for over 25 years now. I am unmarketable. My next career move will be involuntary retirement. And I am suddenly facing the reality that many people younger than me see as normal - working your whole life will not get you enough money to retire. So I am turning to the last financial saviour of the modern middle class - crypto and day-trading. Yes, gambling. You might lose it all and end up on the street but that is just hastening the inevitable. On the other hand, you might get lucky and dectuple (or more) your money. It's really the only viable option these days.

Give me all the shorter guys that you don't want

I fantasize about my smoking hot married 5'6" boss because my boyfriend's size makes some positions painful or impossible...let's just say his middle circumference is in the "danger zone" on any health chart. Men, don't worry about that arbitrary 6' limit you encounter in the minefield of online dating. I would have gotten together with a shorter guy but I never met a non-married one who likes me as a person. (Married ones, though...oh boy, they follow me around like I'm leading them on a great adventure...like when they're around me they're just....happy....) Ladies, you don't know what you're missing.

I Wonder

Why all the CRA scam calls stopped. Use to look forward to talking to someone during the pandemic.

My anxiety

has blocked me from my hopes, my dreams, my potential, possibilities, chances, serendipity, risks, wins.

nomo

I will not be resuming my promiscuous lifestyle when the pandemic is under control.It's too much hassle and I've gotten used to the slow pace of life,eating at home,walk the dog and learning the boogie woogie piano to irritate the neighbours...
