I really had nothing in particular to write about, but some time to write a post, so I get to vent a little and hopefully it at least helps me.
Work is still very stressful. A little more hopeful looking, but still not good. It took turning a three day weekend into a one day weekend to squeeze out the little bit of hope there is. I was looking forward to some serious shopping for my new wardrobe over the weekend, but instead worked too much.
As a result of long hours at wkrk and constant stress, I don’t like this city! Ok, I really do, but a break from the crowd would be nice. A few days without rude people pushing their way in front of me for the last spot on a train or bus would be nice. Better yet, no rude people pushing their way in front of me for a spot on a nearly empty train or bus. I get the feeling they do it just to be rude, I can’t think of any other rationalization for them.
Speaking of rude people, I am sick of excuses. Some people seem to think misgendering, using a wrong name, or making sarcastic gender comments is ok if they can think of an excuse. I am too old to remember/change, I have trouble remembering, and I don’t understand are the top ones I have heard so far. Guess what, I personally do not understand being in a body that matches my gender, I have never experienced that, but I don’t use it as an excuse to be rude to you! I also really don’t need to be singled out, especially in front of others, and told I am not being lady like. Being a woman in no way implies I am a lady, and I never will be if it means adhering to someone’s random stereotypes.
Ok, maybe I do feel a little better now. Sorry to be so negative. Something happened the other week that makes me smile when I think about it, hopefully you can get a chuckle from it. A round, fat baby seal looked at me with his cute adorable face. I swear he was smiling at me, then he let out a ripping loud fart 🙂
