I love her so much and can’t do anything about it but be together in my daydreams.
I wish people would stop panic buying fuel. A small number of petrol stations announced supply problems and now we have a national run on petrol and diesel. I don't want to queue for another half hour to fill up the sodding car. This bloody country has gone mad!
Agreed, I had to kind of panic buy (mainly from societies earlier knee jerk reaction regarding toilet paper) so I can get to work, in theory should have almost 3 weeks supply now. After that I don't know what to do.
My dictionary and Thesaurus came.
If we all stoppped buying the sodding fuel there would be more than enough for everyone and the drivers would be able to deliver what we need!!!
So I had a major dizzy spell like I was on Titanic. I blame my anxiety
Agreed, really had enough of it. People don't seem to learn.
I’m loving M&S’s Percy Pig range…considering getting the lampshade.
The supply issues are a bit disconcerting. I walked into a gas station earlier this month and half the drink cooler was empty. Last week I had to run to my local shopping mall, already in decline before the pandemic, and like half the stores were boarded up. It was eerie. Only more insane thing I've personally seen so far is getting vaccinated at a huge CDC site with National Guard soldiers running around with rifles casually slung over the shoulders. It was like a movie.
Jesus, that is messed up. Society doesn't give me any confidence anymore.
I mean they didn't shoot anybody, it was just surreal. To be honest what scares me the most right now is the US is choosing in a lot of states to stop the extra unemployment and allow evictions to happen again. My family will be fine, but this feels like it's going to put a lot of people in a desperate situation. I'm not trying to do Dust Bowl, Round 2 over here.
Yea true. If I was over there I think I'd be looking for a way out, I'm currently in the UK and we're going or gone so far down hill we may as well be in the Mariana's Trench. I was looking to relocate to the continent but Brexiteers have removed that from me, so that is good
My electric blanket is the best thing I ever bought. There’s nothing better than hopping in a hot bed on a cold night.
I feel lonely. I need to laugh
So today it was confirmed to me that my dad has Leukemia. Today he threw my aunt who's homeless and who was helping my mom take care of him out on the street. She had me drive her van to the house because it had a bunch of stuff that she needed and when he found that out he told her he didn't want her living there.
Things had actually been getting better between me and my dad and I thought this would be a catalyst for starting over. He's a narcissist asshole and a Homer Simpson-level moron. So now my mom has to take care of him all by herself. He's going to be starting chemo in a couple weeks and is going to need a bone marrow transplant. At a time when I was hoping we could just put shit in the past now I've lost all respect for him.
I decided today that I am never going to introduce any future significant others to him because I cannot in good conscience and will not subject someone I love to his abuse. And that grieves me, that kills me because every parent wants their child to end up with someone good. But that's just it. I can't do this anymore and it's time to set boundaries for my own sake.
Are an ability to excessively daydream and being an expert at procrastination marketable skills?
I'm sorry to hear about this going on in your household. It seems that the better we are at setting up and enforcing reasonable boundaries, the mentally healthier we become.
My thought is about law enforcement. I've never been one of those people who got into trouble so when I did have an encounter with law enforcement for something like a ticket, it left a bad taste in my mouth about them because of the way I was treated. I've met some decent law enforcement people who have been chill but many have not been chill and have been downright jerks.
As I read the news, I realize more and more what a stressful job they have. It's also a very important job. They never know what's next. Some are stressed out and do wrong things, but I don't need to get into that. But, today, I read how some law enforcement agents got onto an Amtrak train in Tucson for a routine check and someone opened fire on them. One person died. It's all very senseless and they are usually brave souls. These sorts of things in the news can get a person down.
Depends how you spin it. You could say that you're imaginative and as result can come up with creative solutions. As for being a pro at procrastination, you could say that this shows that you can think on your feet and work under pressure. I once procrastinated so badly on writing a speech for class (which could be about a topic of our choosing) that I made up a speech on the spot about procrastination. Still managed to get a nod of approval and a pass.
I'm currently job hunting.
I’m back after some log-in issues.
I worked one day last month but quit. Turns out I hate retail.
Going to finish my associates and certification by this December.
My boyfriend is working at a new company and is so much happier.
I got my decorations set up for Halloween. Thinking of dressing up my two shih tzu’s Milo and Louie as Mario and Luigi.
The weather has been really nice lately too. It rained periodically yesterday and it was so pretty and the sunset was beautiful.
Last month my mom and I went to San Francisco for a cousins wedding and then my my bf and I went to San Diego. It was all really nice.
My dog is called Louie as well haha and also that is pretty sweet
