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!

So you can ask my daughter if her store is hiring and to help you get in, but when you posted about applying for the convention center and someone asked you where to apply you told them you weren't helping anyone because you wanted this job, and this isn't your first time being a bitch. But it was okay for my daughter to help you? My daughter *can* put a word in for you, but it's not going to be a good word. Watch yourself little girl.

Your house is a wreck, your kids are filthy animals, you haven't lost any of the baby weight, you sleep until noon and eat McDonald's and Taco Bell daily. But hey your Pinterest account says you're perfect so it must be true.

Your OB/Your OB's nurse HATE that stupid book "What to expect when you're expecting". Do yourself a favor and don't tell them you're reading it. Worse? saying something like "Well the BOOK said this". Just STFU.

My DH is always telling me I should write a book, enter an essay contest, write poetry. While I appreciate that he thinks I'm that good of a writer, I couldn't do it. I was a really smart kid that cracked under pressure and burned out. I tested gifted, read early, high IQ, your basic child prodigy. But all the pressure from my parents to NEVER be less than perfect was too much. I am now a SAHM and other than reading recreationally or to my kids I loathe learning. At the end of the day I just want to watch a mindless TV show, reread a King novel, or play a game on my phone. I spent my whole life feeling like I had a gun held to my head and now that I am free of that I want no part. Could I write a book? Yeah sure I guess I could- hell anyone can do it. Do I want to? No. As frustrating as it is for my DH to feel like I am 'wasting' my intelligence, it's just as frustrating for me that he doesn't respect my request to leave it alone.

I think a big problem with society today is we aren't schooled in the art of 'keep it to yourself.' You don't need to say, text, post, blog every single thing that you think. It is ok to have an opinion or judgement and NOT express it. We have become way too accustomed to word vomit. What happened to keeping private things private? We need to have more personal relationships with actual individuals, instead of just shouting intimate details of our lives from the digital rooftop. We have somehow become too personal and not personal enough at the same time.
