I technicallg should go to the doctor because I clearly have a concussion but the thought of spending all that time waiting just to be told that yup, I’m right like last time seems nauseating. That time seems better spent in bed at home. I’ve resolved to take it easy for another week and not make big life choices until I’m feeling better. The hardest part is not loosing it on customers thanks to the added aggression. Classy people hand their money to the cashier, they do not just throw it down on the till. I used to be satisfied getting their change really fast so I could do the same to them and then scanning the next order fast so they get self conscious but I might snap. I know I’ve given a few dirty looks already, they just slip out.

Anyways, I can’t drink so it’s back to bed for me.

The article would work better with a title like " Why yoga pants are bad for me". I thought this was going to be about germs growing on the crotch area of these pants or something instead of some self conscious woman going on about how nobody wears sweatpants anymore. We love sweatpants.

Anyways, I've noticed a lot of self conscious women tend to write articles/post statuses about something they are going through and then try to preach about it to all women. It normally starts with an experience they just had followed by their magnificent realization and deep thoughts with something like this to close it off:

    So step into some slouchy pants with me. We don’t have to look quite so good when we’re just trying to look a little better

Read: Join me in doing this because I can't actually just focus on myself and I need validation.

I read something the other day that said something along the lines of how a good relationship doesn't make us want to change the other person, it makes us want to change ourselves. I'm still digesting it ,but it definitely stuck out to me. If someones wants it they'll work hard to grow and become the person you need in a relationship and you'll do the same for them. It's like we can only fix ourselves, and as much as we can support others we can't do the heavy lifting for them.

Moderate doesn’t mean independent, you can’t just make up the meaning of words and then expect to have a decent conversation with other people who actually know what the words mean. Words do need to be defined and moderate will never mean socialist AF.

But... Bernie isn’t moderate. You can’t really say you are moderate when you want to vote for the guy who’s the opposite of moderate. You said you don’t like Democrats for pandering to the far-left and that it alienates you but Bernie was the one doing that.

You would both lose, my body is fucked and I can't even bury my sorrow in gluten filled baked goods. I know that feeling though of being stuck. This is the best descriptions of what I see when I drive or as I more recently found out snowboard at a decent speed. Only difference is it's more grey/white and my eyes are open.

Just click it I don't know how to do this stupid picture shit. I'll figure out a way around it just like I found ice climbing when I couldn't do regular rock climbing. You'll find a way to overcome whatever problem you've got.

You get to tinker with stuff as a dental hygienist (teeth) without heavy lifting and that's a skill you could use to help people who don't have access to dental care if you get set up with the right people. I looked into that at one point and I'm pretty sure it's a community college degree.

    I'll at least pick up a few new things to help me land something.

What do you actually want though ? I just got to a point in life where I'm comfortable going bigger with school and honestly I wish I didn't waste my time making compromises on what I really wanted for so long.

Edit: I have no fucking idea what I want.

Have you found any programs you're keen on going back for ?

I decided to regularly start wearing the glasses I was prescribed roughly 2 years ago that I gave up on so when I see another optometrist I can tell them how that went. It's been really tripping me out, I keep getting irritated that I would 100% be able to see something without the glasses but realizing when I take them off that it really is to dark to see. I also realized at work today that I haven't walked into anything, or smashed a glass into something else in my peripheral vision. Then there was filling the water pitchers which is always the worst because they never look as full at eye level as the do when I'm filling them in the sink so I have to put it back like 3 times. Even that didn't happen and I just thought there was some weird explanation for why that happened. They don't fix the whole problem but they do help a little which is exciting. Hopefully I can get set up with an optometrist who can fix a little more of the problem without having to drive 2+ hours.

Edit: I finally found a little gif that looks close enough to my major vision problem that I don't have to sound like a crazy person trying to describe something whoaaaa. Happy fucking Wednesday.

You should be able to get a nice goretex shell for like $300 max. I find my ski jacket to be pretty good for most things but I definitely would have been more comfortable in those fancy layers. Which brings me to another things, gloves or mitts. I have what would be considered great gloves but you have to be way to careful about not getting the inside wet. Not sure how much the mitts I wear now are because they were a gift but they’re definitely expensive and there’s a huge improvement. Marmot has some good stuff.

The best option for clothes is layers. Something the water and wind won’t get though, so goretex is best. You don’t need anything to heavy either if you buy good stuff. After doing the first pitch ice climbing myself and the first guy were sitting on an ice ledge waiting for the third guy to climb up. First guys outer layer was covered in a layer of ice with the last patch melting in the car that was 45 minutes away so the ice probably lasted about 2 hours if not longer. They weren’t even bulky thick outer layers. I probably had more bulk from my regular ski jacket and less warmth. His pants where also less bulky and I’ll bet his legs were just as warm. You just need good layers so that you won’t sweat while your active but you have something to throw on for that little bit extra warmth. A pretty thin insulated jacket is basically what they had and it was pretty valuable for the weight it added on the pack which I doubt felt like much. Depending on the weather you’ll be experiencing you might need a thick parka but that depends on how cold you expect it to get. Nose hair freezing ?
