Tension At Work
Saturday, September 22, 2018      10 comments

Peace of Mind
Saturday, September 15, 2018      4 comments

After much thought, I have decided to not fight the SSA bill (see yesterday's blog), and just pay it. I originally thought that I could work for 9 months and still get my full SSI benefit, but after some research, it appears that I was wrong. ... Read more

Confused
Saturday, September 08, 2018      10 comments

Yesterday, I emailed my best friend; I told her that I think it would be best if we don't live together, because I'm not okay peacefully coexisting with bugs (see yesterday's blog). She got upset, and said that she took it personally, and that ... Read more

"You Should Buy Me This Suit!"
Monday, September 03, 2018      7 comments

Today, my parents treated me to lunch at Souplantation. They actually wanted to take me to a Korean restaurant we like, but I asked if we could go to Souplantation instead, because I wanted to try their tomato soup. The tomato soup turned out ... Read more

Rude SSA Worker
Friday, August 10, 2018      4 comments

My disability benefits should have been cut off this month, but I was still paid. I called SSA (the Social Security Administration) this morning, and the worker was unbelievably rude! I asked why my benefits are still active, and she said that... Read more
Losing Faith
Sunday, August 05, 2018      5 comments

Last week, I told my parents that I don't think I can be happy living with them forever. My mom asked why, and I told her the truth--I'm lesbian, and want to date other women. Then my mom shrieked that being gay is evil, and that I can never g... Read more

More About My Parents
Sunday, July 22, 2018      5 comments

After I wrote my last blog, it seems that there is a misunderstanding about my parents; they aren't bad people at all...they're just flawed (but who is perfect?). Let me fill you in on my family's past. My dad was never able to hold ... Read more
