In response to a confession. I feel the same way. If I go somewhere, I'll post a pic of something pretty or interesting, but I won't document the whole trip, accommodations, etc. I have an acquaintance who does daily countdown posts for weeks before a trip, and hundreds of pics starting from being picked up at her house until she gets back from her vaca. Same with concerts, and she records and posts every song.Idk how she even enjoys anything when she's constantly documenting. I have another friend who I worked with when I was a flight attendant. Every single international trip, she makes a post from the airport. "On my way to (city)! SO blessed to have this job!!!" even though it's her 30th time in that city, having been flying for 25 years. When I flew, I never told people where I was going unless they asked. I felt like it was bragging to say I was off to Rome while they were stuck in the hot, dirty city.

I know I have a good life and maybe it was the way I was raised but "bragging" to me feels just weird. I have friends from all situations and I feel like posting vacation pics etc... even with "blessed" "grateful" or whatever is kind of bragging. Is it me? An FB friend goes to Paris any times a year. She posts every detail (food, luxurious rooms, pics of her and hubby) again and again. I go to Europe often as well but can't imagine "putting it in everyone's face" for lack of a better term. Our new culture of curated everything-childhood, marriage, home life etc... is really not a great idea in my opinion. Weigh in?

I just read an article that said in 2016, the median household income in the US was $59,000. That's way higher than I thought! In said in order to be considered 'upper income', you have to make double that. In the city I live in, the median is $110,000. That one I'm not so surprised at. It is funny, I make less than the median here, but I feel like I am 'upper income'. If I want something, I buy it, and I don't have to check to see if I can afford it. I save about half of my paycheck without really trying. I'm on track to retire before I'm anywhere near my 60s, possibly before I hit 50. I guess upper income means something more than that. Is it measured by stuff? Like, buying expensive cars and big houses?

My beloved doggie Clover passed away last month and I miss her every second. She ran away and was missing for three days before we found her by a pond. It was awful. She’d had a seizure the day before she ran off and we think she wanted to go off and die on her own which is not so uncommon for dogs. My kitty Kissa has been a huge comfort in this bad time and we just got another kitty to keep her company, a Siamese named MoonPie. My old dog Tobi is on his last legs too (15 years old mini schnauzer) and I’m constantly checking to make sure he’s still breathing. I’ll be heartbroken when he passes, but also relieved. These past couple of years have been stressful because of our geriatric dogs.

I love burning incense. Whenever I'm at Walmart, I grab a bunch of boxes just in case I run out of my favorite other brand, so I don't have to make a special trip to a store or wait to order online. I just happened to look at walmart.com to what other fragrances I could find. I could not believe the price! A box of 40 sticks online was $2.98! In the stores they're only 94 cents, what the heck? And on Amazon they're $4.98!

In response to a confession. Our dog was 7 when we adopted him 4 years ago. From the beginning it's made me incredibly sad that we will only have half of his life with him. I cry about this regularly.

In response to a confession. Our dog is 14 1/2. Every time I think of her dying I get sad. I can’t imagine having a dog all of its life and not learning to love it.

Our dog is really old and probably isn't going to be around too much longer. I'm not going to miss her.

There is a very small town in my Midwestern state, where everyone has an English accent. It's the most bizarre thing ever.

Here to vent about my first world problem. Booked an airbnb that has 3 beds and says a 4th is available by request. We requested the 4th and the host said there is no obvious need for it. Um, you listed it, I requested it, and I’m paying. So what’s needed, dumb bitch, is for you to be a host that fulfills the contract, not one that mouths off about what people’s needs are.
