There is a neighbor that lives down the block from my parents and me.  She lives alone and doesn't drive.  My mom will often invite her to go to the store when we go so she can buy what she needs without having to ask her son or cousin to take her.  The thing that I don't like  about the neighbor though is that she is manipulative and also makes passive -aggressive statements as well as hurtful comments. 

Today I wanted to go to a store that we don't go to very often.  I wasn't sure where to find the items I wanted so I started looking around the store. The store was crowded and the aisles were narrow so I was also trying to avoid bumping in to people. When I turned around the neighbor was right behind me and said "I don't know why I'm following you. You never go where I want to go (she means in the store) You always go to..." (I assume that she was going to say toys)   It really rubbed me the wrong way.

I realize it's Saturday night and it's only 9pm, and noise ordinances don't start until 11 but my neighbor is playing her music. It's on the other side of my bed and I can hear it perfectly.

I was asleep for a little bit but it woke me up. Since I don't have a sofa to go lay down on, I'm stuck staying up until she shuts it off.

Sorry for posting again so soon, but my Comcast bill is ready and it's $10 more than it was. Because of "changes to my plan" which just means they raised the price! I'm getting a discount of 26 dollars too, I think it's good for a year. I only have internet. No TV, no phone. Just the cheapest internet. I can only get Comcast here too, no other options.

They do have a program for low income people for free internet (the quality probably sucks though) but when I called for info about it, the wait time was seven hours. And of course, you *have* to call, again no other options.

I went to shake the carton of iced coffee only to discover the cap was not screwed on right. I stopped before it could make a bigger mess but there's coffee on the floor, on the stove and counter and on me -_-

My family needed to pick up a prescription and my dad decided to drive.  Sometimes he drives really aggressively and it scares me.  Twice on the way home his driving frightened me.  I can't tell him about it because he will get mad and once he gets mad about something he never lets it go.

Someone sent me flowers. The delivery lady banged on my kitchen window even though she could see I was feet away. I was unpleasantly surprised.

My sister-in-law is the exact same way with Facebook, so you aren't alone in your struggles!

This happened when I stopped using FB a few years ago.  It took a little bit but I finally just stopped caring about looking.  If you really want to give it up, keep trying.  It can happen.  :)

i pretty much quit facebook because i follow a lot of dog rescue groups and i get really sad looking at the stories but i feel guilty unfollowing because its dogs. but i am much happier not looking at facebook. i'm ok with not seeing posts from my friends. they know i don't look at facebook so they'll text.

but twitter is another story for me. i don't really follow anyone i know IRL. but i follow a lot of people who also work in tech and it's so much drama. sometimes there is stuff that's useful. but the drama with the influencer types is like high school. it's a bit much.

also the political stuff. there have been studies that show that feeling outrage can be addictive. so maybe that's part of the problem for me. i really just need to delete the twitter app for good.

Beth, I really culled down all my following and I just unfollow people who post things that make me upset. As a result I only follow art people now. That might help cut down on the addictiveness somewhat or at least make your experience less negative.

Of course I start my period today, the one day that I work earlier than usual! Really rough, hopefully I've dealt with most of my symptoms for today and I can have an uneventful shift with minimal pain.

I'm really down to today.  I'm hoping it's just me being a little overemotional but I've felt pushed aside by my parents a lot lately.  It seems that they can find time to do whatever they want but I want to do something I feel like we only do that if it's convenient for them, :( 

Today my dad started going through my stuff in in study/home office that we all share.  None of it was really private or personal and yet it upset me because it made me feel like again my stuff is in the way even thought it's been there a long time.  I am literally blinking back tears   He kept pulling stuff out saying "What is this?" "Why do you have this?" 

They're great parents and I love them a lot but times  like this make it hard

.... i really just need to delete the twitter app for good.

I believe in you that you can!  ^.^

My trivial complaint today is that I ran out of cartoned egg whites,  and now have to break open eggs for my lunch if I want my omlette.
