Just got off a saturday shift at work. A couple came in and sat their toddler in a booster seat...15 minutes later the toddler starts shrieking her head off every ~20 seconds. It sounded like a rabid monkey being poked with a cattle prod and if the door to the restaurant was open I would have heard it even from across the street. Some kids these days....

And I'm afraid some people might be saying things about me behind my back at work. I might just be paranoid for no reason but if people are I don't know what to do about it.

Confront them, but be civil about it. And apologise if it's just a misunderstanding. Don't do as my older sister does n' go in all: "Hey! You been talkin' aboot me, eh?! Huv ye?!"

But only if it bothers you that much. If not, then just ignore 'em.

Thanks, I'm a civil person but I won't confront anyone unless I confirm my suspicions. People complaining about others behind their back is immature and petty to me, unless it's a complaint to the boss or a human resources issue.

Uh-huh! Sadly, she doesn't take kindly to constructive criticism, or when the likes of me tells her she's overreacting by way of shouting n' swearing.

There's literally trillions of things I'll never see, never listen to, or ever experience, yet I'm listening to this song that I've listened to probably a couple dozen times in the last few months that I like, and I'm thinking to myself "i'm going to get so many opportunities to listen to this song in my life, I better take them when they come and appreciate every second."

It makes me wonder if that's what life is all about. Are we just sort of picking at random from those trillions of ways to spend our time, and repeating the good from it?

I agree. I think it's because not all of us have very many ways to make ourselves happy so we keep going back to the things that we know will make us feel that way. If you had millions of options that would guarantee to make you happy 100% of the time would you still only choose a small amount of them?

Alright, no more excuses. Being this heavy is killing me. I'm starting today.

By the end of June I want to be down to 195 pounds again.

Best o' luck with the weight loss, I hope you achieve that target weight by the end of June.

That reminds me, I need to start working out again.

I think that last question you put forth is an interesting one, because I can see an argument for either side. Like if I think of the example of desserts, imagine there were literally a million different ones that we knew 100% of the time would make us happy.Would you try a different dessert every time, or would try maybe a hundred or so and just re-eat them every so often? I could see eating a delicious piece of blueberry pie and wanting to eat it again the next night, but I could also see how by doing so would take away the opportunity to eat another type of dessert. You just can't try them all, try as many as you can once or eat a portion of them multiple times?

And with the first part you said, about how people who struggle to find things that make them happy may go back to the same things that have done the trick in the past, I could also see the flip side of that. I think being unhappy makes one aware that there are a lot of things that make them unhappy, and that in looking for new experiences could just be leading them to the same results.

But I think a person who struggles to be happy, or find things to make them happy, may look more for new things instead of just going to the old, tried, and true. It's like, imagine you had the means to make one billion dollars every day, you probably wouldn't spend your days looking for ways to make money. If you only had the means to make fifty dollars a day though, while you would spend some time making the money (doing the things you know you like) you may also spend a lot of time looking for new ways to make money (Looking for new things).

I think I'm a person who will sometimes not go out and try new things in the fear that they won't go well. Rather than focus on the prospect of it being a good addition to my life, I'll dwell on all the ways it could make them worse.

I think what I'm sort of getting at is what the expression "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" conveys, in that if you're happy and things are going well, why change things? And on the other side, if things are broken, why would you not try to change things?

Everything is inverted and has been perverted. Nothing is sacred anymore. I hate this world sometimes with every fiber of my being.

Maybe it's my bad english but what do you mean by "inverted"? In regards to "perverted" and "sacred" and the occasional hate of this world, I don't know if what you mean is what I think you mean, but if it is, I've been feeling that way very strongly lately. I feel like humankind with its overspreading, is spoiling the sacred in the world (and by sacred I don't mean anything religious).

Thinking about my ex today - my first love and former fiancè.
We knew each other for a long time - he was my first everything. He was the only person who loves music as much as me and maybe even a little more. I miss his face and even just talking to him. I was listening to music and I was thinking about how more bands need to utilize axillary percussion instruments - he would get that. He was my best friend... It's been nearly 3 years since we broke up and a year since we cut ties completely. I thought I was over this, but I miss him. I try to remind myself of why we broke up in the first place and how we can never be together again; I will probably never see him again. The finality of it is a hard pill to swallow. He's probably completely moved on and was notorious for having a shit memory, so I am probably the only one sitting here trapped in our old memories...

I just hope that when I actually find someone new, he sticks and I can forget about the past and move on.

Tell me about it...

im getting more and more fed up with people's bullsh!t every day.


One thing im very sick of though is having trust issues...As the years go by they just seem to get worse. The only thing that seems to help is avoiding people.



This comes to mind:

Finish your shouting match before you call me next time.

You're both in your sixties, one of you is pushing seventy, it's a joke.
