    I've put far more thought into this than any sane man should.

    Snow can suck my fucking nuts. We just got hit with 18 inches of heavy, wet snow that froze into ice overnight. Was out with my steel-toed boots this morning, literally kicking loose giant blocks of snow that I had to carry over to the snowbanks like goddamned Kristoff.

    I woke up Saturday to an April 1st snowstorm (I mean what the actual fuck!?), and a brutal cold that was made much worse by shoveling heavy, wet slop all over creation. Since then, I've recovered physically, except my voice sounds like I've been gargling gravel and I cough about once every thirty minutes with the ferocity of a fifty-year smoker.

    Good times. As they say, it's fun like ball cancer.

    People who don't indicate / signal have a special place reserved for them in hell. Personally I think they should be pulled over each time they fail to do this and get hooded, gagged, maced and tasered. After that, they should be thrown in the back of a police van and taken to an airport before boarding a United Airlines flight to Pyongyang (to ensure the appropriate amount of roughing up). There, in the presence of the supreme leader Kim Jong-Un, they would be sent to a work camp for the rest of their days.

    If you are one of those people who don't signal and you are in front of me, expect no mercy.

    Actually, lump in over demanding clients with them as well, but send them to accountancy practices instead so they can bear witness to the daily struggle they inflict on us.

    Behold! The fuckery of American health care!
    I went to Urgent Care with chest pains and fading consciousness in September 2016. They did an EKG but wanted me to be seen by a hospital just in case. The hospital only did an EKG, fluids, and an X-ray. All of which could have been done in urgent care. The ambulance ride was no longer than 5-10 minutes. Nothing was administered. And look, they charge $90 to Lysol where my ass was in case I was infectious.

    Oh, and that's $19.20 per mile by the way.

    For that type of money they should have thrown in a bottle of champagne and a blowie.

    So tired. Sorry if I'm a bit distant right now, I've just been drained lately, and I need a bit of room to vent.

    Writing about something helps me work through it. I had a bit of a hard realization today, and it's both really simple and pretty complicated. I think that my mom doesn't see any difference between me making a mistake and me being disobedient, and I'm becoming aware that maybe this is not okay.

    I know she loves me, but at the same time, it often feels like it isn't the right kind of love? Not an unconditional mother-daughter thing, but the sort of love you might have for a trophy, or maybe a cute little doll. I'm the badge she gets to pin to her chest and say "see, I'm a good parent, my child has the best grades and she never disobeys me and I have all these perfect, pretty pictures to prove it". I've kind of come to hate it when she whips out her camera. The pictures are technically beautiful, but they feel fake to me. Plastic. Probably because I remember the countless times she's yelled at us for not posing the right way or for not smiling like she wants us to. And the cold shoulders when we come home after a failed attempt at a photoshoot. When we were taking senior pictures, there was a day where I wore the wrong shoes, and she drove us back home in angry silence. And when we were looking for a Switch and I was allowed to buy an Amiibo, she got mad at me for running ahead in my excitement and ruining her chance at snapping a discreet picture of me picking it up. I didn't even know she wanted a picture.

    It happens too much. Death of a thousand cuts and all that.

    I want to say that her little bouts of anger don't scare me anymore, but they do. Most of the time, she's lovely. Yet, it's hard not to be little nervous around someone when you don't really know what will and won't cause them to sneer that they're sick of you and everyone else in the family forgetting things or doing them the wrong way when we "clearly should know how to do it" despite not being entirely sure about what it is that she wants us to do.

    Basically, you know, being human.

    Today, me and my sisters didn't know that mom wanted our chores and such done early so we could get some preparations done for tomorrow (mother's day, grandma's visiting). That caused some drama. Hoping that she more or less forgets it by tomorrow. I used to dismiss these things because I didn't really think I could be abused. Comfortable middle class, good grades, no-one hits me, family didn't kick me out for being gay, etc. But I'm learning better, and I reallyreallyreally want to go to college in the fall, if only because I won't have to worry about pleasing her so much when she's miles away.

    Ugh. I'm going to sleep all this off. I hope the rest of you are having a nice day/night, at least.

    Oh Fenn. This is heartbreaking to read. As a teacher, I absolutely see this as a form of abuse. I have seen how this can affect young people, so never doubt your own feelings regarding it. I only wish I had words of wisdom for you. I know this is drastic, but have you considered to what extent you'll be able to distance yourself come college? It is more difficult when your mom has a hand in paying for your classes. But if you were to get a job, apply for scholarships, do what you can to be financially independent, that would be easier. And believe me, when you're in college, surrounded by new friends you make, it will be easier.

    To try or not to try. To take a risk or play it safe.
    Your arguments have reminded me how precious the right to choose is.
    And because I've never been one to play it safe, I choose to try.
