My mother signed me up for ballet in the early 90's. I was an 8-9 year old boy at the time, and we had just moved to Hicksville USA. I don't think I learned much in ballet class, but as soon as the other kids in the public school found out, I learned a lot about perceptions of gendered activities, fighting and bullying. Thanks mom!
Picture this. You're a 20 something Health Sciences major at Sunday breakfast with the whole family and sitting across the table from your 49-year old dad, known for his really fucking weird food habits. You and everyone else can't help but watch and cringe as he smears some peanut butter and jam on a sausage and pops half of it into his mouth. Silence at the table. Like, what the fuck! I absolutely hate when he does things like this. It just freaks me the fuck out. He's my dad, and I love him, but I swear he does it on purpose just to get on my nerves.
I deleted my Facebook account on Christmas Day!!!
More often than not, I’ve become a lot more angrier now than I was when I was younger. Things tend to bother me a lot and I rarely smile as much these days. I honestly don’t know what smiling is nowadays. Soda help me cope I just eat marijuana gummy‘s. On one hand they make me feel relaxed, zoned out and help me with sex. But once the highway wears off and leaves my body for good, I end up feeling irritable. My head feels hung over and I tend to get really cranky. When I get irritable, I need lots of time to myself. A lot, and I don’t want to see or talk to anybody. Then superimposed on top of that, I have Autism.
Family feud. And the bigger person was my brother. He amazed me and he is smarter than I gave him credit for. And those who take, just keep taking. True colours this season. You reap what you sow. You give nothing, you get nothing.
For me at least, the perks of below zero temperatures mean I can use my second, outdoor fridge - a cooler on my balcony. I can store extra food without wasting electricity to keep it cool. I've been told it's a very Canadian thing to do haha.
There is a first time for everything. Apparently it's dangerous cuddling my kitten when yawning. He just stuck his paws (yes both paws) in my mouth! I now know the taste of kitty toe beans...
I'm on my own this year for various (covid-related) reasons & I am struggling. I'm sure I'm not alone in the struggle, I just wanted to come here & wish everyone a Merry Christmas, whether you're alone & having a hard time or dealing with a toxic family you have a hard time with, or having a first Christmas without a loved one. I hope you can find it within to find some good things about this year to appreciate, even if they're not as abundant as usual.
Is just oozing with humanity, which is why I like it, especially during these dystopian times. Something about this space that makes me feel more human in Vancouver. I wish I could buy everyone a round of beers at the local pub. Cheers✨
I like my job. I like the people I work with. However, as someone who has disabilities, going to the gym is the only way I can physically and mentally prepare for employment. I work hard outside my work hours to be a capable reliable worker. In 2 years of COVID the only time I crashed and burned was April May of this year in the 3rd wave restrictions. I am much more cautious this time. Giving my notice is tough, but with no physical and mental health outlet, I can not work a higher stress job.
