... have started wearing adult diapers. Getting old is a mixed bag.
I am totally attracted to friends who exhibit signs of strong leadership and purposeful action. This is a lifelong pattern, and as long as the person has strength of character as well as charisma, I am going to want to be in that person's company for a long time.
I really appreciate steadfastness which is being steady. It perseveres. It is dependable. When steadfast, we remain true to our purpose; whatever happens. Steadfastness grows with challenge, but do not confuse it for being stubborn. Steadfastness finds its strength in discerning a direction that has meaning for us. Consider it being purposefully stubborn, if you will.
Steadfastness is like a strong and sturdy ship with a destination in mind and heart. It is grounded in the most powerful of motivations. It can be flexible in approach but determined in destination. Water is steadfast. Try to stop it. If you do manage to block it, it will find a way around down, through, over or under. It is headed to the ocean.
I was at a long meeting yesterday in a tower downtown. Went to a public washroom and put my mask in my pocket. When i was finished i took "my" mask that was sitting on the top of the toilet roll dispenser and put it on. 20 minutes later i discovered MY mask in my pocket. YES you understood it. I wore some used mask that somebody left in the toilet stall. I'm still grossed out about it. And no i have not had my vaccine yet!!!
I am addicted to stupid games on my iPhone. I spent literally all day yesterday playing scrabble and crossword puzzles and stayed up until 4am doing them as well. I can’t stop even when I get a headache and sore arms and hands from it. I deleted the apps just now. I’ve never been like this before, but after over a year of lockdowns and no travel I am literally going crazy!!
So many interesting masks nowadays. You sure are pretty wearing the solar system on your face. I feel a little plain in my sun-faded black mask but I refuse to stylize this necessary evil.
I cant even begin to understand how you all wear the exact same outfit as all your friends. Today on the bus I saw a group of teen boys ALL wearing the same ass Nike AF1's and the same ass outfits. Jesus you look so ridiculous.
When I was young, in high school, I took a girl out on a Friday night. She was putting on chap stick and I asked if I could try some. I leaned in and kissed her. Ha! Proud of my young self ;)
Why are ants so damn cool. I'm sitting in my backyard right now, watching them all scurry around and I just saw two ants high five each other. It totally blew my friggin mind.
I always have a reoccurring daydream. I wish I was a test subject for outerspace exploration. Like signing up for a "mission" to a black hole to see what happens, or Mars or whatever. I fully give my permission to crazy rich elite scientists to use me as a guinny pig to send me off this planet Into space for scientific education. Sad thing is, there's a lot of other people who would too. Competition is probably ly fierce.
20 years ago, an owner of a diving and kayak shop came into a class full of their newest keener optimistic students and gave a life lesson. It was about previous students who had, after getting their start with this store start their own shop. Long story short, it was a lesson that when they went bankrupt the owner went in and bought up their supplies. Didn't need them, didn't want them, but it was about pride or something, The lesson was for us to not f*ck them over, but the lesson has always stood out to me. A few years ago my ex came back in my life. Something she said she would never do and would be mean if I ever did to her. The thing was, I was doing fine, but she had just opened a business and coincidentally needed to show me. At the time I went on a black out drinking mess. That's on me. full stop. I sobered up. Got my shit together and moved on. The thing is.... as a business in Vancouver during COVID, she has been wiped out. First by the first year, and then by the fact this summer has effectively been cancelled. I go back to what this owner told me years ago. Open a business, but if you f*ck with people in doing so, they will pick your carcass clean. I stayed sober. I also have not once bothered her during this trying year. I learned how much she hurt me flaunting a momentary success and that I would not want to do that to anyone. The world has not changed.
