Default I got married and am moving to Mexico City!

Hey guys. Who is still here?

Life back in the USA has been rough for the 14 months since I returned.

1st apartment burned down, moved to Pittsburgh, have student loan debt piling up, earned a masters degree in literacy and reading education that is basically worthless (here), work a thankless minimum wage job in childcare, and live in a slummy apartment with rats...


I'm fleeing to Mexico City to work at the American School Foundation, teaching grade 1 and developing literacy programs.

My husband (as of 2 months ago) gets to be recognized as my spouse with full visa benefits because Mexico is all about gay marriage.

And I can bring my pug.

I am going to get so fat.

by the way about that apartment fire did you let it go like you said you were going to or did you actually sue them. sounds like you just let it slide

The landlord installed faulty gas hookups (a washer was split, allowing a leak), said the fire marshall.

The landlord countered that no one could prove I did not "move and damage" the hookups, and claimed because I had signed a walk-through of the apartment (where we checked the burners did work at that time) I had signed away any responsibility from them. 2 lawyers agreed. We settled with letting me out of my lease shortly thereafter, heavily discounted rent on a new place for the remaining time, and a small sum of money to replace what I lost.

And You're still here! That's all the world needs.

Don't get gunned down by a cartel, alright?

Also I don't know how you like having a job where you're the only adult in a room full of 6 and 7 year olds. More power to you though.

Yeah. I am in a "classroom" of 3 year olds right now. 16 of them.

I cant wait to be in a room without diapers and where the kids know how to eat and wipe their own asses.

Im probably stereotyping here but seems mexico city might not be a good place to avoid apartment with rats.


Anyway, congrats on the marriage thing.


I didnt know you were still around here. You used to be like 15 when i met you or something. Time goes by.

Well that's why im stereotyping about rats. I just think super crowded and dirty....hmm...rats.


To be fair, live in any major city and there's gonna be rats everywhere around. Its all whether or not they can get through the walls of your apartment.

Love how when you're away from Netphoria for a bit - then you return, with these positive feelings... make a kind post, and get either met with total indifference, dumped on, or get generally snarky responses. Ahh, Netphoria. Love ya. Gonna ride the wave of this place til the bitter, bitter end.

america killed pretty much all of the indians. we win at genocide

also we enslaved people because of their color and created an "independent republic" because "all men were created equal" and the rules are literally "but some are more equal than others" and it's all a big clusterfuck of capitalist exploitation
