Rant All You Want Here..Whining Allowed.

Recommended Posts

I've been holding off writing the essay as part of the college application. I haven't written an essay in about 3 years so I'm rusty. The deadline is next week. I wanted to enter the writers digest short short story contest to win some extra money. I can't think of any good story ideas that short. It's also due next week.

When Kanye comes on and you dance, but you forgot you had stitches in your stomach so you squirm in pain for the next 30 minutes.

Thinking of whether to buy an apartment here, and whether I should cancel my holiday so I could save on that money :( Housing is so expensive here, and I hate being massively in debt, but I guess I should start looking. Have sent out an inquiry on a unit I kinda like (It's not ready, so have asked agent to look around for me). Hope I find something before someone in this house goes crazy and starts shooting.

My issues are kind of irrelevant in perspective; I had an emergency appendectomy on Thursday and have to rest for a week? Haha. 

If being under your parents' roof is socially and emotionally disabling for you, are there woman's shelters and other resources you can reach out to in the community? In the mean time, work a full time/ paying job so you can be financially independent? Going back to college with the exact same home situation that made you drop out last time, do you see the results being better? 

Apologies for all the unsolicited nosiness. I used to do some volunteering with outreach programs, so it's kind of habit to start brainstorming for alternative solutions. 

Thanks for all the advice, and no you're not being nosy, if at all, it's really helpful. And resting in bed for an entire week is really crappy. I've been sick for 2 weeks and slept in later than usual.. a lot of hours are going to waste there. And I've never considered attending a women's shelter; think it's the fear of living with people I don't know. I've never done volunteer work either, not sure because I'm not earning money? lol. And I've tried applying for jobs at one point but never got hired by any of them. As for going back to college, that's something I'd like to do but I'm too far behind on all my courses and couldn't keep up so I dropped out. I've been trying to improve on my study habits ever since, but I'm sort of stuck in a dilemma between helping my mom out at work and helping my brother out with some artwork he's doing. Wish I could be like a supergenius or something so I could complete a million tasks in one go. Know that'll never happen though. Sigh.

Yeah I've been there with the no support from Asian parents situation. To them everyone else has it worse and we're just complaining for attention. I have a friend who's like you. She's 25, still living with her mother, confided in me that she's been abused by her father, doesn't drive and has been working at the same job since she's been 16..

For her she's more comfortable meeting people online. She talks to people who have the same interests as her and then eventually meet them in person.

Have you ever talked to a therapist or even a hotline? Ever been on anxiety meds? If you ever wanna talk just message me because I def have anxiety issues too

That's exactly how it is. Parents don't see our problems as being anything probably because they might've had it worse, which I don't deny. And I'm sorry you have a friend that goes through that, not meaning to offend, but at least she has her own job lol. And I occasionally do the online chatting thing, but no one's problems are really similar to my own and they pretty much give you advice you already know about. I don't meet up with anyone online, it seems like a scary thing to me and I've never been a trusting person either. I've been to counseling before but couldn't say a single word because my dad was there and most of my problems revolved around him. It was a huge waste of money. And I've taken anxiety meds but they only made me drowsy and more depressed. I'm sorry that you're going through anxiety issues too. I believe it's mostly contributed to being stuck at home all the time? That's what's mostly causing mine. I guess people just need to get out more lol. Thanks for all the support though, you're really nice.

Haha, true that. I had my eye on a condo unit, but unfortunately it makes more $$ sense to go for government housing. And it's depressing looking at those, but my friend said to just regard it as a stepping stone to something else. So I'm trying to think that way, and your bank analogy too.

I feel hopeless again.

I really thought this was the one... it felt so real. I saw it...

But today... 

Today proved it.. it's not real. It's a matter of time till it ends. I felt the shiver

I'm deciding on my next move, but what to do now...

 

What happened?

Oh you know..  the usual boy problems

Falling for someone who... for some reason wants to be with you, but doesn't actually love you. 

But I'm not sure how to move on.. I thought about being upfront about it but today I feel like I should just ignore him. 

 

What's your thought process when you think "this is probably the one"? And what changed to make you think he's not? 

I don't know if I ever believed in the concept of "the one" so it's always interesting to see the thought process behind it. Is there any due diligence process involved?

I guess it's more of a feeling than a thought. I just knew, it's hard to explain. Due diligence is semi involved, like them loving you back lol

He's definitely not if he doesnt love me. I'm not dumb enough to stick around with a guy who cant reciprocate my feelings.

I'm just not sure why he wants me around. Men are just as confusing as women

 

I think I can provide some insight on why someone would keep you around despite not having real feelings for you. 

1) Good sex

2) You're hot 

3) You're fun to date 

4) Easy sex 

5) They think they could develop feelings for you eventually

6) They're bored

Man there are some really uneducated opinions on corporate on the streets. Went to Starbucks and these sales associate girls I recognize from Aritzia are like "I would never join corporate, so heartless cutting jobs that feed families blah blah". 

Margins have been negative for way too long, and companies need to stay afloat? So many more people would lose jobs if these companies tanked? 

And please Aritzia IS corporate. A smart, vertically integrated corporation with a board of directors. You already werkin' corporate, sweettits.

Are you sure it wasn't more like this, "I would, like, totally, never join corporate, they're like, so heartless, and like, cutting jobs that feed families and stuff"?
