I don't mind reading stories of child or sexual abuse. I am a survivor of both. If there had been better education, if I'd known more about what could happen to a person, I might not have been abused. Information is power, folks. The more we know, the safer we and our children are. I vote to keep such confessions in their entirety.

I recently discovered my younger sister is dating an older man. To put it this way...she is still in high school and this guy is way beyond the drinking age. My mother found out I knew and states "Don't judge! You don't even know! You don't have kids!" Yeah. That is true. I DON'T have kids but I will judge the hell out of this parenting decision. Let's put it this way...if I, the childless one, thinks that a teen dating an adult is wrong then what would a parent who has gone through the hurdles of parenting (and not what my mom has done, allowed underage drinking, failing grades and now this) think? This relationship is toxic.

I watch "Sad Cat Diaries" on YouTube almost daily. The kids and I copy the narrator's voice and talk from our cat's perspective while calling ourselves "the Authorities".

I do not miss being used for sex. It disgusts me that I tolerated it for so long.

Someone gave me HPV. I haven't had sex in 2 years, and I was tested for STDs right after that last relationship ended. I never had any signs until recently. I just went to the doctor and got the news. Doctor said there's no way to know which of my previous partners gave it to me, because the virus can be dormant for years and years. Also, there's no reliable test for it, so the fact that my last STD test was clear, doesn't mean I didn't have the virus then. I feel disgusted and very confused.

It's 1:25, here I am again, in front of my computer, committing to sitting here, enter all this data and not get distracted.

I have on old friend who is having trouble getting pregnant. I want so much to tell her I'm jealous of her childfree life. I want to tell her not to take the meds to get pregnant. I do love my kids but I would not do it over again if given the chance.

My oldest attends a public school for gifted kids. The level of obsession that the other parents demonstrate regarding the school is mind blowing. The school is currently housed in an old high school--while the school district figures out how to build a school for the growing gifted population. I am in a community on FB of parents. They are almost constantly bitching about stupid stuff like there not being enough playground space (there are two playgrounds on site, and parents come in an volunteer for recess running team as well as unicycling), and the fact that they don't feel there are 'enough' toilets in the building. Toilets!? Really!? Their children are being provided with a top-notch accelerated education in a school with a bunch of other kids who have parents who are equally invested in their children getting a great education. Parent involvement is high. The PTA funds are more than adequate. Currently, as the plans for the new school are drawn up--they're all up in arms about the fact that the new school will not have an auditorium and their perfect little rainbow-farting unicorns might have to sit on the floor of the gym for assemblies. Oh yes, and they're upset that it would be a 1st-8th grade school--all for gifted kids. They don't have to worry about their kids having to mesh with the unwashed general-education kids--but, damn, if they might see older kids when passing in the halls!
