Wise words: Free yourself from negative people

I don’t share things like this here often (you see enough of them on Facebook), however this one explains why I refuse to spend time with people who suck the life out of me: I feel like everyone should adhere to this rule as much as is within their control. Your life spans a short time, and you don’t need to spend it with people who guilt trip or demand your time without contributing anything positive in return. You need to spend it with the … Continue reading

Conflict Resolution With Loved Ones

Once in a while, I get into an argument.  Sometimes, it’s a hundred times a week.  I like to think I know a little something about arguments and how to resolve them.  Here are a few things I have managed to learn in my journeys:   Fact: The people you will argue the hardest with, unless you’re a politician or protester (but even still, I think I’m right about this), are the people you love. Avoid an entire argument.  Take the above note about “arguing … Continue reading

Conflict, eh?

I’m having a bit of a moral dilemma. It’s apparent that any time someone has yelled at me I’ve found them to be little more than a pathetic butt. My issue is with my neighbours: They’re about 75% awful.  They have no respect for their anyone, in fact Miklos had to built a fence so that they wouldn’t hose their dogs’ urine and feces onto our house as they had been doing for what I imagine to be years prior. (They keep their dogs in … Continue reading

This conversation has a real flow to it!

The best show on television which will be ending this year in all likelihood is 30 Rock.  I don’t see a need for a full blog post, but should I die, I think there needs to be a record of this opinion somewhere other than Twitter (my tweets are indecipherable and oft times sarcastic, you might have noticed). OK so I got to rant my little heart and spleen out to someone unfamiliar today and I did it without swearing more than once, and even … Continue reading

Please Say Thank You

If my (currently not conceived) children learn to speak and don’t use the words “please” and “thank you” when people do them a courtesy, they will become homeless.  That is all. Share the post “Please Say Thank You” FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestStumbleUponE-mail

Hey North Carolina

This made me upset.  I’m trying to elaborate but I have no few words.  To anyone who has ever had the nerve to think it is OK to control the lives of millions of people they’ve never even met, you need to let people do what they want.  They’re not hurting anyone being in love, so tolerate in the 21st Century already.

‘Wack’ Wedding Photographer Prices

I’m no wedding photographer, but all I can say is “good for this lady” for her detailed response to a very uninformed person’s rant on Craigslist. People are so ludicrous.  Your wedding will cost money if you don’t choose to get married at city hall in a five minute ceremony with no formal reception.  And quality photography also includes the cost of the time spent/research done/fuel consumed in training yourself how to take beautiful pictures.

[Addendum to the Outrage of Yesterday]

I should explain why it bothers me so much that people are so insensitive.  I’ve always been strong-willed and for the most part self-assured (albeit a little off-the-wall), but I know and care about a number of people who are not.  There are a lot of girls working with the public who are affected by such comments, some of whom I’ve worked with who have quickly asked me immediately following, “Am I fat??”  There is no reason any of them should have to feel weird … Continue reading

This is Insane Comma Talking…

I am so happy that today a lady asked me what size jeans I wear and then frowned and said “Yeahh… that’s probably the size I am now, I’ve gained so much weight in menopause.”  SO happy. People ask me why I hate the universe.  Well, no one really asks me anything aside from my jeans size to then call me fat or my personal favourite, “hippy” (not “hippie”, which would at least have some comedic value).  If anyone WERE to ask me something concerning … Continue reading

Chiminey Cricket and the No Thank You Blues

I saw an episode of Holmes Inspection (actually, it was a two-parter) about a couple who had a seemingly gorgeous house, but it was terribly inefficient and also their bedroom was not reinforced so it was bound to one day collapse into their kitchen.  There were heat and water leaks everywhere, as well as squirrel and mouse droppings throughout their attic, and their electrical panel was older than time itself.  So of course, the team went all out and gutted the entire place, even re-shingled … Continue reading
