Search confessions

Tell no one

As someone who has had thoughts of killing myself since I was like 10, I wish there were somewhere I could talk about it without risking arrest.

I am sort of worried about the future

I just read about an 83 year old cleaning buildings to help support herself... Not in Canada... yet. The way things are going-- with how much less our money can buy us today-- and how much we work to support ourselves certainly makes me worried. Same in the US. I think we will actually deal with poverty here and the social safety net we have will burst due to our debt and politics.

But I am a positive person

So it is always hard to read all of these confessions. A lot of the time I end up eating popcorn sprinkled with butter and salt, but it is as if the salt has fallen into my eyes, as I want to cry. I then rub my face and get butter all over it from my buttery and salt popcorn. These negative confessions really bring me down. This is a positive space!

Dad shoe

I don't know what a dad shoe is but apparently I wear them. I don't care what shoe I wear as long as it doesn't hurt my feet.


I didn’t think it could happen again, but it did. I was resigned for so long and so guarded. She’s thoughtful and kind. She’s helped me so much. She’s beautiful and funny. She tells me these things too, and I’m coming around to believing her. She makes me feel good about myself, and I’m growing because of her.

Don't understand some roommates

I am actively looking for a place to live as well. I found the perfect place but the roommates want to do social stuff all the time. No, they are not 21 either. I just do not understand why working professionals who are already in a relationship and have family have to form these family relationships with their roommates. It just seems like the travellers are getting desperate and trying to suck us into their umbrella cult organization.


It upsets me when people who make twice a much money as me directly impact my life because they aren't trying to do their jobs properly.


I am a stay-at-home mom to a beautiful 2 year old baby boy. Due to COVID my husband now works from home and it has made things very difficult for us. He has taken over the kitchen table with his files and computers. Him going to work gave us space and time from each other. Now he is home all the time just working. I like my husband but I don't need to see him 24 hours a day.

At last!

So I read that Translink is making it mandatory for everyone to wear masks on the buses and skytrain come August 24th. Finally! Why did it take Translink so damn long to take this issue seriously? We are in still in the middle of a serious pandemic and the virus is not going away anytime soon. I’m glad action is being taken because I for one am fed up of disgusting, careless people standing so close to me, breathing down my neck . Either put your mask on or do not take transit at all.

I admit it .. it's unkind.

To refer to the unmasked occupants of cars bearing Washington State plates and refusing to mask up as AmeriKarens and AmeriKens. But I am not going to stop.
