    My next door neighbor has combat ptsd and im assuming some other kind of mental illness and I try to be patient with people but our houses are only so far apart and he has a habit of ranting at the top if his lungs on his porch. Early in the morning and last night he went until almost midnight.


    It's a good thing I can't hear him clearly enough to decipher, because I think most of it is political. It's not loud enough to wake me up most of the time but once I'm awake I can't go back to sleep

    Just wanted to vent some. My room is right next to his house with a thin window

    The leader of my gw2 rp guild has been doing some stuff that's been bugging me. She's a bit brash and abrasive anyway and let's people know about this, but she seems to have something against my gf. She treats her different and gets annoyed at her over nothing and sends her pms over harmless jokes saying that other people found them offensive. Like I'm one of the most sensitive people I know (Something I'm working on) so if something was offensive it would ping for me as well. Someone else can do pretty much the exact same thing and nothing will be said.

    The most resent ones was over her answering a question "in a way she didn't mean." and then she got snippy again when gf asked her a question about a hair regiment she suggested and we thought we had remembered wrong. Looking back she told us the way we remembered not the way she's saying now.

    I don't want to leave the group but stuff is starting to poke my red flagdar with her and I don't like it.

    If you are white, you do not get to balk in horror at the fact that Mexican hot chocolate involves chili. Because you want to know who invented it? Who gave it to you? It was fucking us. You don't get to take our fucking food and then laugh at how we make it and have that be fine. Fuck you people.

    Mexican hot chocolate is the fucking best. And I had a hot chili chocolate bar once and it was great. If you don't like the taste that's cool, but I don't like a lot of things and I try not to give cultures too much shit about it.

    Except my own culture. I will talk all the shit about some of the dumber white americana choices

    Yeah like I wouldn't mind if they didn't like how it tastes. Like. That's fine.

    But like. We made it first. It's our dish. Why can people who aren't even us say things like "The Swiss made chocolate better" or make jokes about how weird and crazy it is that we stick chocolate in chili and mole and other spicy dishes and think that this is okay? Like it's not fucking fine. And people do this over all of our food and I am really sick of the shit over chocolate in specific because like it's just so important to our food and so many people don't know and when they find out what we do with it they act all horrified.

    I saw someone today not only say that like the Swiss improved chocolate, but also insinuate that we basically never made any changes to the chocolate recipes that existed when the Spanish arrived. And like no Mesoamericans kept doing things with chocolate because it was one of the important food stuffs. The current uses of chocolate in Mexico represent countless years worth of experimentation. Including after the Spanish came and tried to force their diet.

    That feeling when you see friends getting torn down for saying the harmless thing you were just about to say as well by other friends. Not having a good time mentally right now

    I feel very conflicted and awkward about social justice matters. I really dislike the absolutist attitudes a lot of progressive spaces have, but I'm uncomfortably aware that my own limited experiences with the traditional nemeses of the progressive movement (police, landlords, and business owners) and my experiences coming out in real life have pretty much all been positive, and I don't know enough people in real life who are likely to have negative experiences with them to have a realistic view of how bad the social situation is around me. I'm also very limited in how much I can do to fix any of the awful bullshit I do know about, and I would like to help but I don't know where to start.

    I paid a "professional" $50 an hour for their services only to find out after the fact that they did not in fact complete the job to the specification

    In fact they did literally fucking nothing and now I have to do it because I sure as shit don't trust anyone else now.

    Honestly a bit lost on what to do at the moment. Gf was indeed kicked out of the rp guild for quote 'having a poor attitude and sense of humor' I'm caught between staying or going myself.

    On one hand I have a lot of friends still in the guild and enjoy chatting with them, and don't really have another way to easily

    On the other there's the leader who is a know-it-all, everything she says goes no exceptions, possible pathological lier who frankly intimidates the fuck out of me to the point that I really wonder if the officers stick around because they're to scared to leave.

    This is same person I mentioned before who also tried to get one of the officers to step down when she was having internet issues (cutting out often but coming right back) that did not effect her doing her job and there were other officers present. It just meant she lost connection on voice chats a lot

    I loaned my mom several hundred dollars earlier this year to pay off a credit card. She swore she'd pay me back when she could, in installments. Normally i don't have her give me her word she'll pay me back, since she never does. This is a "if she doesn't pay me back i will use this as a Reason to stop giving her money" thing.

    After getting her stimulus she hasn't said a word.

    Finally I brought it up today, because she orders stuff off Amazon several times a week. Sometimes useful things, but also art supplies, fancy new blender, etc stuff that isn't a necessity.

    She says she hasn't been able to pay me back because she doesn't have a lot of cash, and shes been paying for her packages....with....

    A credit card.


    Vjfdyhh.

    I know how many packages she gets because she has them delivered to my grandmother's, where I live. I then have to ferry them over to her place around once a week.

    Might start charging a delivery fee.
