So sorry Scrills. Hugs to you and your family right now. I'm glad we know you're not alone.

Cat, do you always have to have a meow fest when BF and I want some busy time? It's awkward. And you have to jump between us when we're done, lol? Jealous kitty.

I have realised that there is nothing wrong with my body. It;s not perfect but no one has a perfect body. What I have also realised is that if someone doesn't want to be with you they will find ways to identify your flaws and weaknesses and build on them. It's like bullying.

I will continue to work out and try and keep fit, but my mission is no longer to starve myself with the intention of being 125.

Oh, and I met someone at work that I thin is a cutie. I don't know if he's single though or if he's crushing on someone. I invited him to my b-day get together (told him that he would be the only work person there and he can bring someone if he'd like) and he said yes he'll come. Yay for new people in my life. Even if he is seeing someone else it's cool that I am going out and looking

ETA: I swa one of my exes (from high school) yesterday an he pretty much validated my beauty in such a subtle way. Too cute.

ETA: Why are there so many typos in this post?

((((Scrills))))

I'm so sorry you're going through this.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are two couples I'm friends with that are separating/splitting up and going through a very, very difficult time. I'm surprised and sad because I always thought both had solid marriages. Both families have young children, too.

DAMN!!!

I just wish everyone could be happy and loved.

over it. there's a reason why your only friend is your boyfriend and he is weird. You can take your judgemental superiority complex and stuff it.

So when exactly do I get those reparations for all the people who've wronged me? Because it seems to me they're just fine and dandy while I see no ****ing light at the end of the tunnel.
Yeah, this is why the idea of some cosmic balance is ********. Maybe for those born under a lucky star or some other arbitrary factor.

I often feel this way too.

"Quiero que el amor al fin conteste: ¿Por qué siempre soy yo la de la mala suerte?"

I hate when forms require an evening and day phone. Update your ****, people! Lots of people only have a cell these days.

I hate when people ask me where I'm from. Yep, I was born in the DR, but I could have been born here. Sometimes I answer NY though I know what they mean, and I get "originally" as a reply. Like, what if I'd been born in NY? It's just rude.
And to piggyback off that, I hate when I'm asked where in the Dominican I'm from. Ugh, I hardly lived in the area I was born! I lived in Cabrera before I moved to the US. My memories of the DR are of Cabrera! But if I actually answer Cabrera I get confusion because a lot of Dominicans don't know where Cabrera is, or they think it's Loma de Cabrera, which is not the same place.
Anyway, even then it's ****ing annoying. I grew up here! What significance does the area of the Dominican Republic that I was born in have in my life? I don't identify with anything involving the areas I lived in. My life is NYC. It is so incredibly meaningless to ask me what part of the DR I was born in.
Then I get asked about how often I visit and questioned as to why I've only been back once in my life. Nobody can comprehend that I've never had the money and time to just go off to the DR because tickets are fairly cheap. Umm, not when you barely have anything after all your bills are paid, which was the case for a while, and since a trip is never just the cost of the plane ticket. And this industry doesn't exactly allow much in the way of vacation time. But see? Why the **** do I have to get anywhere near this point? I really can't be bothered giving an explanation for this ****, and of course that's too long to get into when people are just making mindless small talk, so they all just nod their heads in response not believing someone could find a trip to DR that expensive.

Hopefully I get there in time.

(((((Scrills))))) I am so glad you have support nearby and I am so, so sorry this is happening.

((((Minxy)))) I'm finally trying again to find a therapist I "click" with after falling completely off the good thoughts wagon awhile back. Maybe we can remind each other how important it is to stick with it.

My referral for the place near my house has run out by now. Dangit, I could've walked to my appointments there! The issue with the system has brought up an unpleasant thought: the referral just ran out; there wasn't any special problem because I didn't continue making appointments. So the people who do click with someone and are making progress just don't get to go there anymore and have to start all over again at one of the main locations? Every time something therapy-based goes wrong for me, I think of how this situation might have played for someone else in a slightly different situation and I feel so bad for Hypothetical Person.

Saria, anyone who has wronged you in life ought to have Karma personally come up and kick them in the face. You deserve to have all the breaks for your cooking prowess and intelligence and kindness and complete and total refusal to stop being awesome. You even know where the best .gifs are! I can't stop smiling at that El Dorado one and the post that goes with it. You've completely made my night/morning/oopsIblurredthelineagain.

That poster that points out how sexism affects men could be read as having refuted your friend's point already: "For every girl who takes a step toward her liberation, there is a boy who finds the way to freedom a little easier." There is no way for the poster to state the reverse without some sort of explanation, because there is no great male struggle for liberation from the bonds of being in a higher societal position. If you want to go all literary analysis on the thing, there's also the fact that the girl's the only one doing any work in this sentence, likely because she's the one with the longer distance to walk. They boy will presumably have whatever struggles on his way to freedom, but the girl is the one who's actively taking a step right now. There's also the fact that somebody needed to make a poster to attempt to raise awareness of sexism negatively affecting men. I've seen many statements like your friend's, and I know it comes from a place of wanting to make the pill easier to swallow (and also staying in men's good graces), but trying to remove any chance that men will feel attacked by observations that they are in a place of privilege can only end in failure. Sexist a-holes are only going to either feel vindicated by the implication of equality and ignore what the poster actually says go on claiming nothing is wrong and b*tches need to stop complaining or declare that the real imbalance of power favors women because they are allowed to turn down sex after a man has bought them dinner. Nobody should get a "Get out of Checking Your Privilege Free" card.

Is my brother saying "retarded" even more now? Can he tell I've resigned myself to just leaving it alone and praying he doesn't do it in public? Eh, no, he's just super negative about way, way too many things. He couldn't stop calling Caster Semenya a man for two seconds to be impressed by her flying past the other runners to get that silver medal. He also keeps saying athletes "choked" or "sucked" when they simply didn't get the very top score. Like when Aly Raisman placed fourth in the AA competition, he kept saying she choked, and I was like, um, her only major error was that slip when she touched the beam with her hands - it takes more than a bunch of minor execution errors and one non-fall on beam for me to say she choked, and hello, she nearly won bronze! I also overheard him talking to my dad about some team sport and saying both the men and women choked, and the men "didn't even medal at all." That means he said the women choked when they HAD medalled?! WTF. The rest of the world wishes they could choke like that. Also, you are the one who sucks for your repeated nasty remarks about rhythmic gymnastics. What did those gymnasts ever do to you? Even dad was mildly calling you on your BS, and he was the one who made the initial douchey comment! (Brother: "Anyone could learn to ribbon dance in a few months." Yeah, that's all it is. Also, love the twitchy hand movements. Dick. Dad: "I don't think you could ever learn to ribbon dance." Also, my dad actually freely admitted to being impressed by the clip he saw of the gold medalist.)

ETA: Mom busted into my room and caught me being unhealthy again. But, El Dorado .gif. Also, the acid reflux is bad right now so clearly whatever problem is still there and has maybe gotten worse, because it's acting up while I'm medicated. But, El Dorado .gif. So the good in the world still comes out on top.
