The absolute best help these government funded programs can offer you to help you find an apartment is to help you look up Craigslist Ads. Can you imagine? They all say it Craigslist!
First of all I have eyes and fingers and I am well aware of how to use Craigslist and I have been using it. The problem comes in that it's now so expensive for housing and the landlord's are so picky and I can barely afford a one bedroom apartment but mostly all the one bedroom apartments say " for one person only " what is up with that ? And landlord's receive so many applications you never stand a chance at a place. I got a job and they wouldn't let me take it. They said they have no insurance to watch my teenage son who is of age to stay by himself. How is that helping me ? I am here to tell everyone that you cannot get market rent without a job ! Yes it is impossible to get market rent without a job understand ?
Do you know what it feels like to try and crawl out of a hole you have been in only to have someone put their foot on the top of your head and say
" Now tell me what are your barriers are to finding an apartment".
OMG fucking you !
You are my barrier !
I could just spit and I hate spitting.
Bloody hell !
Bloody Hell !
So damn mad !
Pointless getting mad but damnit stupid ass people !
Stupid I tell you !
So stupid !
That's right Ranting and also Raving !
Knock on your bloody door and just walk in.
For the love of God who does that.
You got the knock part correct but you wait for the person to let you in, answer the door and let you in , you don't just walk on in.
I can't even begin to tell you how rude and invasive that it.
What ever happened to privacy ?
What happened to it ?
That's what grinds my gears today, so far today! I'm sure there will be more things today but so far.
Oh my god !
I was always one of those people who had the she's "out of my league mentality. I got a lot of those people in my life now as friends and peeps. Not from personal dramatic changes, but from exactly the opposite. As a high energy sports and nature person, my younger years were always being sharked by dudes who were alpha. As the years went by seems the alpha simply meant abusive. Now that I am high energy sports and nature person over 35, while simultaneously not having been a person who cycled through relationships and marriages and kids, being true to who I've been has become more attractive. Yet, I tend to believe it is also not to trade those chips in for moments pleasure to overcome some youthful self hatred, that keeps it level. In the eyes of others self compassion, pride and a love of life getting better with time if you are true to yourself.
The number of times my Uber driver has cancelled at the last minute, the number of times an Uber Eats driver has arrived with an incorrect order that I've had to wait for over an hour to correct... I hope Uber dies. I long for real service. I use Yellow Cab now if I want to go somewhere, their drivers are excellent and their app rocks. And as for food delivery — call the restaurants if you can, or pick up yourself when you can. Uber sucks. Death to Uber. Unreliable corporate jerks.
I hope Bruce lands another coaching job and beats the hell out of everybody to win the Stanley Cup. Bruce, there it is!!
If you have a nose pick it cause a nose cannot unfortunately pick itself. And use a tissue!
In 2017 I was homeless.
Thanks to a shitty wife and some shitty friends.
I felt like I never wanted to be in love again.
One night I saw a tiny kitten living in a tree hole, city side, with a grate over it.
She wouldn't come out.
I went and bought a tin of cat food.
She wouldn't come out.
I left the open tin and lid in the hole for her.
I whispered to her.
I gave her the name "Tiger" and planned to return.
The next day I didn't have any money.
The next I found a fiver.
I returned with a tin, whispered "Tiger, tiger, tiger" and put the open tin next to my foot.
I called her.
She finally crept out nervously.
She ate, then looked at me, and returned to her hiding place.
I whispered to her as I left.
This went on until she'd come out and jump in my lap and purr and rub her nose on my thigh.
We were in love.
I tried to find a place to live that took cats.
I went back and somebody had dropped a tin of tuna that had one bite out of it.
And she was gone.
I confess that I had unrealistic hopes. In spite of so many years of evidence that they would never change, I still hoped that this time would be different. Because I’m different. The things I tolerated in the past will never be tolerated again. It took a long time and a lot of pain, but I finally learned. So although it’s clear that they miss me and want me back, they’re making a paltry effort with nothing to show me that anything would be different this time. So sadly, we will remain apart. I’d rather be alone for the rest of my life than go back to what almost broke me completely.
I loved a woman who lied all the time. Okay, I still love her. She lied about unimportant things, and she lied about important things, too. Finally, I wrote to her, "Please do not use my security fob and key to enter my home, again. Please discard my security fob and key. I have discarded the personal belongings you left at my home. Love Always, GP". At first, I was sad all the time. Now, I am only sad when I think about her. But I think about her every day.
