Search confessions


I watched Stranger Things late last year to see what the hype was about and I wasn't blown away by it. It's alright, but not amazing in my opinion. I used to be able to watch movies and tv shows years ago but now I barely watch any. I takes me months to years to watch something someone recommended.

I confess I'm enjoying

the increasing daily shagginess of our PM when he does his COVID-19 updates. I'd love to see him just do full biker mode and let the beard and hair grow out until there's a vaccine.

Yup, the scale has got to go

A couple of months ago I realized for the first time in my life I was actually getting fat. This was a shock, I've been one of those fortunate people who eats whatever and my weight stays the same. Well, the lower activity brought on by the pandemic plus increased eating and I ballooned. So I bought a cheap scale, increases exercising and started dieting. It worked, lost 20 pounds in 2 months. It was difficult, I was basically hungry for the entire 2 months. But a new obsession developed, checking my weight every morning. And it got very dysfunctional. There were mornings where I knew I had been very diligent the day before and yet I would be 2 pounds heavier and this would ruin my entire day! No more. Scale is in the back of the closet. I'm much more aware of my diet now but it's not about a number, it's about feeling good. The scale was ruining my mental health!

Yo momma so fat

I'm so lonely that when my phone rings I assume it is a robot or wrong number, and it usually is. Sometimes it scares me because I forget I have a phone, it is so quiet. I've never made friends very easily.


A couple little thoughts. The prettiest woman I ever met takes every photo from below because she doesn't like her long nose. And yet that's a big part of why she's so pretty! Recently (masked) I've been receiving a lot of looks from women. While attention is good...the conceptual leap as to what that must mean about my face is really making me depressed.

I’d be there

I’m not even African American but I would go and protest in the US because how can people take the racial inequalities sitting down anymore? I support them and would be alongside them. The racial cruelty is sickening.

Wrong Choice

I hooked up with this guy in my building. I know I shouldn't have but its been so long because of COVID since I felt a mans touch and it was electric. I made him wear a mask and use hand sanitizer. It felt amazing but I know what I did was wrong. I am just so ashamed about what I did and I can't tell anyone.

OMG what a hellish country

we have south of the border. COVID-19 has been completely mismanaged, it's open season on killing unarmed black people and the president is advocating the use of violence on Twitter. It's all hard to digest some days, I'm just so grateful to live in Canada, and especially BC where we have compassionate leadership.


One of the food delivery companies in town has overcharged me a couple hundred dollars and even with proof, they are refusing to do anything and keep sending the same reply to my emails. My bank doesn't care either. Sucks to be the little guy.


Regents park

You had came up to me speaking about my sunglasses and I’ve turned you down saying I am not in...
