    aisles and and head all the way back to the art supplies and musical instruments. there they'll find the “unprofessionals.” those individuals brewing coffee in the morning and pouring beer at night. those individuals thriving on artistic expression and creative endeavors with little payment. they’re the ones who are going to make a city unique. they’re the ones who will make a city attractive and a place worth moving to.

    today about my family and what I have been through with them. I have two kids and zero support from either side. I feel rejected by both my parents, and by my brother. The truth is that I have been rejected, that my father is abusive. I fucking SUCKS that I'm the one taking meds. When life sucks a lot for a person, why shouldn't I be sad? Other people are selfish, mean, exclude others, abusive, bully, judge,....but they aren't on meds. Its me that needs the drugs in my brain.

    since. Today the boy told my DD that she was the only Kid in the class that he was not inviting to his Party because of what happened in 2nd grade. I was sort of flamed and it was implied that I should not have told, which I think it incorrect. DD is very upset and wants to know if she did the right thing by telling. Of course she did, but what would you say to her?
