Fuck you guys.


I fill out so many fucking forms for my kids' school activities it's unbelievable.

Every time there's a school trip it's the same fucking form, requesting the same fucking medical information , the same fucking emergency contact information, cell phone, email etc... The same fucking secondary emergency contact person cell phone & email etc.. and all this after filling out a form at the beginning of the school year confirming all this fucking information right from the fucking start!

But today my kid went on a field trip and for him to go on this trip, I had to fill out the same fucking information...again of course.

They were supposed to be back at the school at 8:30pm, they didn't get back until 9:45pm! There were 4 teachers on the bus with 4 cell phones, we didn't have their phone numbers but they sure as fuck had ours. So 30+ parents with 30+ cell phones sitting on the fucking sidewalk for over a fucking hour in the fucking dark outside a locked fucking school waiting and wondering what the fuck was going on and all one of those fuckwits had to do was call just one of us to let us know what was going on!

Next time I get another form to fill out, I'm half tempted to write in...why the fuck should I waste my time?

Laugh out load I love my wife, but I can tell you that if something like this happened, there would be hell to pay, having been on the receiving end of a colossal forgetting-to-inform-her-rant in the past. Ohmy

That said, I can understand forms (forms are made by people who want you to do most of their work for them). However, in this computer age, it would seem reasonable that the district could supply parents with an electronic form that could have the information (except for the event/venue) already there. Then, it's just fill in event/venue and sign. FFS, these people are teaching our children how to get on in the world.

EA will post this 250 times until it becomes a habit! Tongue

What I really need to do is move past this writing thing. I wrote poetry as a teenager during a time when I was very miserable, then it went away for a while. Then I got into writing books and again it was during a very difficult time where a lot of things needed to come up and come out of me. I didn't have to force myself to write at all. It was more like I couldn't stop myself from writing.

Nowadays instead of it being "I can't not write" it's "I can't not want to write". It's more just about the longing to write or to have that creative outlet again. Maybe I need a new hobby? I think somewhere along the line I wrapped too much of my identity into writing. I thought I had figured out that writing was my "purpose" or that writing stories was my contribution to the world.

Maybe now I need to get wrapped up in being a fur-baby mom in the near-ish future. Tongue

Why does morning start so early?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Drat, you caught me. Sad Was going to see if I could convince people for a few days that I had embraced Creationism.

Because if it were earlier or later, it simply would no longer be morning?
