I am back to save the universe!

Well, not really. I'm back to make occasional comments, and maybe mention my evening classes.

There was a cannon in the American Civil War called "Whistling Dick" and I can't calm down about it

Did that kittie just die in its sleep? that happened to our black cat Mr. Leon a couple years back. One night he was sitting in a spot unusual for him but seemed fine in every other way.

Tommy woke up to feed all the cats and Leon wasn't there with the others. He was just dead on the living room carpet. I could tell by his voice something was wrong and I was in the hall already crying and unable to walk out and realize what was happening. I was just saying 'no' over and over.

the doctors say he had a stroke. we could have paid for an autopsy but that's so expensive and he was already gone. it'd be something else if we needed to pay to find out what was wrong while he was still around. i hate that he died alone. i wrote a poem about him called 'To my friend, Mr. Leon' when it happened but it doesn't really rhyme.

Now I wanna cry about it again! blegh

I will do the same, even though our Starbucks is horrible. I’ve been to some really nice ones but our local one has no natural light and is just sad. Let’s do it!

My oldest kid just went to a Starbucks much closer to you! He’s on an all-expenses paid visit to a U.S. college (!! How can he be this old). Just crazy, the money your colleges have….

But I am left behind! Of course. Nobody cares about meeting me. So I will zoom you from the world’s dingiest Starbucks lol

Where in the US?

The colleges charge inordinate amounts of money for every single aspect of education, hence their ridiculous amounts of money

When I attended a university 15 years ago (omfg) textbooks alone could be $500+ a pop

He was in California, but on his way home now…

$500 USD for one textbook is crazy. I’ve been meaning to check if textbooks are covered in the supposed all encompassing fee. Apparently we’d be eligible for financial aid (and it would be a serious discount because the NZ dollar is weak against the USD) (and because we don’t earn that much even by NZ standards)

I know this feeling. My 14 year old’s teacher asked if I was his sister, at a parent teacher interview the other night, though. So maybe I don’t look that old. I mean, I do. It was really awkward. And then to have to confirm it “no. I am his mother. I am old” was very ageing

Omg plus the other day a workmate told me he was born in 1996, and I said oh that was a good year, the smashing pumpkins came that year, and he said “I don’t know who that is”

Yeah, my little one's doctor asked if I had Instagram so I could look up whatever there, and I am old and do not. I've never evolved beyond Facebook and won't. And I have the deadest Facebook ever, having chased whatever likes I'd get away with incessant photos of my kids. I'm not getting an Instagram to repeat myself there for 6 likes.

Even though intellectually, I know that life doesn't end at some arbitrary age and that worthwhile experiences happen at every age and that people generally get more financially and emotionally secure after their early adulthood, I still can't get myself to actually feel that way about life. It feels like I'm not looking forward to anything and missed out on a lot of those fun, carefree youthful experiences.

Intellectually, I know there is no age cutoff for backpacking across Europe and Asia for months without a plan, but it still feels like well duh I'm not going to have some magical quirky wanton adventure when I'm 42. I'm going to be complaining about property taxes and parental leave work policies with my three friends that I go to the neighbourhood sports bar with on Thursday evenings.

I'm relying on the quite optimistic assumption that my generation will enjoy economic conditions as favourable as past generations did.

In reality, I will still be renting at 42.

I have someone working for me that was born in 99. And they have an MBA!

My first divorce was in 99

i'm definitely coping with 'i am a normal boring person and that's all i'll ever be and shit i'm not even doing normal and boring right' as i'm about to turn 27 in august

the stability and lack of .... care about fitting in is quite pleasant; but the feeling of lost hope / opportunity sometimes hits like a freight train
