      Tropical Breeze. I hope you're feeling more happiness and fulfillment.
      I sort of understand what you're saying though.
      Even though we do impact of the lives of everyone we come in contact with (in ways both known and unknown), we're ultimately just specks of sand in a grand, chaotic, beautiful yet violent and lonely system.

      We just have to "keep on keeping on"; etching out what pleasure and happiness we can.

      My rant is that I had to cull another sick kitten. It's sibling isn't far behind. Mew lost all of her babies this time. This illness is fierce. Even the older cats have been effected this time around. Perhaps the virus has mutated further.
      Part of me hopes it kills all of the cats. Just one fell swoop like the Spanish Flu.
      But that's mean and heartless; so I take back the thought every time it pops into mu head.

      Another rant is this migraine I woke up with. I thought it was from just sleeping wonky and straining my neck. Those headaches work themselves out after an hour tops. This one has gotten worse.
      YET, I'm hopeful that the migraine meds PLUS Tylenol may finally be taming it.

      This account became 4 on the first of April. I have a sore throat... What else is new. *deadpan* My rib still hurts right at that same spot on my left side. Oh yeah, I didn't sleep very well last but, when I did sleep, I had a dream about something about what 9sk said and something he posted the other day on IRC... literally inflated like this picture and floated up the stairs. Thanks.

      I don't whether I should/ rant or rave: I gave up a modeling job to stay with a stranger who was in labor. It was kind of an important job too. The agency gave me slack for it... You know how it is you have to be there early but, I wasn't going to leave her.

      Rant: Before this, on Instagram, there was an imposter who was pretending to be a Celeb. He was so far as to make 35k followers. Then when he was caught, he made an Alt account. I just reported both of them for impersonation, contacted @independentpublicrelations and then blocked him. There is probably no need to get in trouble for bullying when he'll dig himself a hole. If someone asked him/her about it, they would delete the comments and block them. The person the user was pretending, has no interest in being on social media. He had said this many times. He has said, quote, "If I didn't talk to you in high school, then I don't want to talk to you know.

      If he was the real deal and was trying to get a verified check, he can not have a second account on Instagram. No matter how famous you are. When Instagram demands an account be “unique” what it really means is that it intends to only approve one account per business or individual except in cases of “language-specific accounts.” Instagram reminds users that it “[doesn’t] verify general interest accounts.
      Plus it appears that he is using fake follower apps and he is making fake accounts for his users.
      How many @Eggs followers can you have?

      Also, the other day, I was on the Official Stan Lee account, there was a user that was selling verified badges but, that bot or whatever was set to private. Private accounts can’t get verified, plain and simple. I wouldn't be surprised if this user would try to buy a verified badge for either one of them.

      I hope everyone has been well.
      I've been keeping busy with typology and iPad gaming lol
      (I can't remember who it was, now, but someone at Typology Central had once been a member here eons ago.)

      Mostly, I've just been doing a whole lot of nothing.
      I did finally get over a c. 10 day severe cold though. That was so rough, I was almost certain it was actually the flu

      Rants: I still have to deal with an ongoing situation with the impostor person. I'm not surprised, though. Yes, I've actually had to deal with this kind of troll behavior before. Still, it's not always easy to deal with it. I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to do other stuff to people's accounts. The celeb he is pretending to be is someone who doesn't have social media accounts and who has made it clear that he has really no interest to start.
      The rant continues, Some kids decided to throw stuff at peoples cars and smashed the window of my car.

      Rave: My niece's birthday is coming up and so is the anniversary of her friend's death. Her friends were hit by a car back in 2013, the day before her birthday. My niece's friend Lilly dead and her other friend, Allyssa shattered her pelvic bone and back then we didn't know if she was going to walk again... Now, Allyssa is doing things like skydiving and hang-gliding. She has come a long way from that year.

      Hi Zhaylin. Hope you've been well. Sending lots of love your way.
      Same old for me. Life is sometimes good and sometimes bad. Always exhausting (?)

      I have just learnt today that my Grandfather's cancer has taken a turn for the worst, which means I will have to make a drive out to Saskatchewan much sooner than I had originally anticipated. I am really hoping my boss lets me take the time off on shorter notice, since I originally told him that it would probably be in July. Honestly though, I'll probably just put in my notice if he says no, I am quite experienced in food delivery now and I hear that SkipTheDishes drivers do quite well if you grind hard enough.

      Thanks, Yuppie. I'm still kicking
      I hope you've been well

      Wow, Lang! I hope you've survived all the chaos and aggravation! So sorry about your nieces friends, but I'm glad the one is doing so well. I hope your niece had a good day.

      Mooseantlers Sorry about your grandfather. Have you made the trip? Did your boss let you take it off?

      My rant is that I am thoroughly exhausted. Last week, I averaged at just under 4 hours of sleep a day. I keep falling asleep at my desk, then waking myself up because I'm acting out part of a dream (smiling/laughing/reaching for stuff). I've not been THIS tired in a long, long time.
      I also have a slight sore throat.

      A rave is that my youngest came over for a weekend visit. She just went back this afternoon.

      I have had a bit of a serious health emergency scare a couple of days ago. I mean I was well enough to go to the gig that I wanted to go to last night but, I was still in enough pain and sick that I didn't really enjoy it fully. Hopefully, I will be able to be well enough to get going on these Tasks Of The Months.

      This has been expected for quite a while, his spirits lifted quite a bit with me being there, my cousin said that it's the happiest he's been in a long time. I also got to see my mother and 10 year old sister, both of whom I hadn't seen for nearly 3 years, so the overall energy of the visit was a good one.

      That being said, today's rant! I started my journey back home today, and I misread my booking information on Expedia, I drove 7 hours through prairie highways into downtown Calgary only to learn the hotel room I'd booked was on the entire other side of the city. I had to drive across Calgary with poor quality navigation in fairly bad traffic, today has been very long. Another 7 hour drive tomorrow to see my best friend and then onto home and back onto the daily grind. Luckily through all the headache today, my little '04 Pontiac Sunfire has handled this whole roadtrip rather splendidly, fingers crossed it makes it home and lives to deliver many more pizzas!

      Rant: My idiot boyfriend forgot his electronic key for his car in the washer machine... I just found it while I was putting the wash into the dryer. :face_palm:

      Just a stupid drawing. :

      Spoiler for big:



      Whatever......

      In some cases, I think that technology is getting a little ridiculous or unnecessary. Those proximity electronic car keys are on of them. Aside from what your boyfriend did, they are actually quite easy to hack, and cars with this technology are actually easier to steal than vehicles that simply have a passive immobilizer/turnkey combo. Additionally, when the turn key ignition does fail, it's a hell of a lot easier to fix. When it comes to a technology like personal transport, I honestly believe that the simpler it is, the better.

      Truth be told I haven't been feeling too great lately. I've been dating my girlfriend for about 6 months now and it's been a turbulent relationship from the beginning. In the beginning she would scream at me a lot and express anger about insignificant things, but lately it's been the exact opposite. We eventually reached a point where we agreed not to yell at each other anymore, and although she has the occasional flash of irritability where she will swear at me, things have been less filled with anger. We were doing okay for the last week or so, but recently she has been consumed with a deep depression. She has bipolar, which means she suffers heavily from mood swings. During her depressive state, she doesn't want anything to do with me. She just wants space. She's been having me sleep in my room alone purely because she 'wants her space'. She doesn't talk to me or really want anything to do with me. This comes immediately after I had been taking care of her and spending lots of time with her. It leaves me feeling bitter because she still expects me to drive her wherever she wants, and she still also has the capability to spend time with her friends, just not me apparently. I understand that she is feeling depressed and she can't control it, but the fact that she's been cutting me out of her life for the sake of 'space' is hurtful and seems senseless to me. It's left me feeling so lonely. We used to spend all our time together and now it's like we're strangers. My girlfriend claims she wants to have a future with me and I've thought that I wanted to have a future with her as well. Having said that, I don't know if a future is possible or a good idea given her emotional instability. She's liable to abruptly cut me out of her life at any moment, and that's really scary. I've been dealing with horrible feelings of loneliness lately. I keep telling myself that I'm still young (21) and there isn't a reason to be so caught up in all of this. There's no need to bank all my happiness on this one girl when I still have a huge life to live. That's easier said than done though. I'm so scared of being alone that I can't make the decision to part ways and search for something more stable. Not only that, but I really really like her. She's smart and funny and caring. At least she can be. When things are bad they're really bad and when things are going good they're going really good. It's confusing and a whirlwind of emotion. What I really crave is someone who I can be safe with and who is predictable and stable. I don't necessarily need an emotional rollercoaster with huge highs and brutal lows, I really just want consistency. I'm at a loss.

      Yuppie That sounds very rough, infuriating, confusing, and lonesome. I hope the two of you can have a really solid talk through things. Make sure she hears you.

      When she's depressed and wants to hang out with her friends instead of you, it might be simply because she needs a distraction without having to worry about you worrying about her.
      She should still make time for you, though.

      If you can't come to some sort of agreement, I hope you can find the strength and willpower to let her go.

      My rant is that I have to drive my hubby to the huge hospital (an hour+ away) in 2 1/2 hours. He thinks he's been having cardiac issues. He's almost 75 years old and he still works. He had to call in the office manager to cancel patients for Monday and Tuesday. He never calls off, yet this will be his second and third time within 2 months (out of 30+ years, NEVER having called off).
      Hopefully, they won't find anything. Or if they do, I hope it's an easy fix.

      Does your husband work out of necessity or because he enjoys it? What does he do for work?

      I've spent a couple days at my parent's house to give my girlfriend some space. I hope when I return back home she's happy to see me and missed me, but I know it won't be the case unfortunately. One of the problems she tends to have is that she polarises me a lot. I seem to either be 'all good' or 'all bad' in her eyes. Her reason for wanting space initially was that she was simply feeling depressed and needed space. Recently, her reason morphed into it being my fault. She cited an argument we had recently, and claimed that she was still trying to recover from it. This was a very inane and uneventful argument. But apparently it's the basis for days spent ignoring me. She has a tendency to find arbitrary reasons to paint me in an overwhelmingly negative light and dissociate the connection we have with each other to coincide with her mood cycles. I've never claimed to be perfect of course, but I really try my best to be a good partner for her. The mistakes I make, are in my opinion, minimal and to be expected. I think fundamentally, the mistakes she makes I am readily prepared to let go once we've discussed them, and I no longer hold them against her. On the other hand, the errors that I make are blown out of proportion, and despite whether I am ostensibly forgiven, they're always ready to be brought back up as justification for her behaviour. I want the baseline of our relationship to be that we love and support each other, and focus in tandem on being happy together. I think that's a simple and desirable state of a relationship. Maybe naive or easier said than done, sure, but regardless, I want us to be able to turn towards each other in times of crisis, not away - at the very least. I know my perspective sounds self-centred, like I'm overlooking the burden of her depression and making it about me instead, but I don't exactly think so. I would be happy to love and support her unconditionally during her hardships, but in order to do so I need for her first to not blame me for her problems, and secondly, for her to want me to help her, rather than just push me out of her life. It's not behaviour that is tenable for me or that I can sustain.
