Too precious by far

Alright, I know that I’m probably going to sound like a mean old guy, but my neighbours literally drive me crazy with the way they interact with their little kid. They’re right outside my window (it’s a condo) and they’re singing nursery rhymes. Every time the guy talks to his kid, he uses that overly fake sing-song voice like he’s talking to an imbecile. He repeats everything the kid says! Tree? Yes! That is a tree! This child is at least 3 years old, and appears to be of completely normal intelligence. The mother is almost worse, because she does the same thing but sounds like Minnie Mouse when she speaks. I’m a father so I don’t hate children. I just can’t stand their *precious* behaviour! It’s nauseating.

I’m kind of scared

I’m a high-risk person when it comes to Covid. I’ve had no choice but to go shopping in the past week because I live alone. So...I’ve been having a few minor symptoms that I’ve been assuming are just seasonal allergies. Except I woke up today with a bit of a sore throat. Maybe it is just the allergies, right?


As a parent who is now forced to work from home while attempting to manage my children’s educational needs, I am overwhelmed by the amount of correspondence and seemingly mountainous amounts of energy and effort that this is all going to take during an extremely stressful and unprecedented experience. I am not sure why the school districts are expecting so much from the children and families. Some of us are simply trying to figure out how we are going to pay the rent and put food on the table. It seems absolutely absurd and cruel to have these demands and expectations put on us by the school. WE ARE NOT TEACHERS!! We are ALL experiencing anxiety and stress and grief. How in the world are we meant to force our children to act as if everything is normal and that they’d best get there work done? It was hard enough to get some of them to complete their homework let alone sign into websites, create passwords, check for assignments, learn a language! You are adding more stress and more anxiety to an already unbelievable set of circumstances! How about give them all grades, tell them to read a book and take care of their mental health! This is shameful.

Car Shares

Make sure if you're using a car share vehicle to clean the wheel and any area you are using. I am not an expert but you don't know who else was in that vehicle before you. COVID-19 can hide in plain sight so be prepared.

Didn't Take Long

I've only had a smartphone for 3 months and now I'm one of those idiots who sits around staring at it wasting time.

Healthy baking

After being stuck at home with the time to bake, I make everything that I would buy elsewhere except it tastes better, it is cheaper, and doesn’t give me horrible Starbucks tim hortons McDonald’s gas.

Worst. Idea. Ever.

I support our healthcare workers and am very grateful for what they are doing. I also have no intentions of banging on pots and pans every day at 7 pm. If you want to, that's cool, I guess. But in truth I hope this idea disappears as quickly as it came.

Sorry Greta

I have stopped composting because of the virus situation. That is just one less thing around my building I need to touch.

PLEASE stay 2 metres away !

Having to go to the grocery store has been a stressful event I have to do once a week. I go earlier mornings when it isn’t so crowded. Getting sick and tired of having to dodge and quickly walk away when I see other’s coming into my 2 metres of space, not seeing someone from behind brushing past me, and those standing near me in line. Stop being so Selfish, haven’t you seen the news or been on social media?


I live in an apartment with two women. It just ended up that way because another tenant left and one of the girls moved in one of her friends. We're essentially trapped in this apartment for 23 hours a day. Leave once a day for a walk around the neighborhood. So yesterday one of the girls said due to lack of options she wants a FWB relationship with me. She said she isn't really attracted to me. I had limited to no options before this crisis so obviously I said yes. Life is full of surprises.
