I would never set one up for myself, but I think gofundme is kind of cool. It isn't like people are forced to give over their money. It gives me a weird kind of hope for humanity.

In response to a confession. Yes!! While i have no problem just scrolling past them now... I’m surprised that people just throw it out there for anything these days. I have seen people ask for money to fund a trip to Disneyland for her boyfriend and the 3 kids between them (why give you my money when I’m actually trying to save up for my own trip), my ex’s drug addicted girlfriend made one to buy her kids Christmas presents (I stumbled across it but seriously, they spent thousands of my money on their drugs, if I could have reported her somehow I would have), the more sensible ones I’ve seen are for when someone’s dad dies, someone had cancer, someone needed dental work, the girl whose dad died was then hit by a car and jacked up her knee and was just like “you know the drill...” and posted gofundme, Venmo, and something else “asking” for donations.

Deleted over 800 old emails. Felt cathartic.

I have a friend that is notoriously flaky. She flaked recently on our joint bday casual dinner meet up. She was feeling sick and overslept. I had a gift for her. I'm thinking of not giving it to her the next time I see her and regifting it for another friend. It's a workout outfit, so can go to anyone really. Any thoughts? Thanks!

In response to a confession. Ugh. My sister has a gofundme to help pay for dental work. She had a few grand worth of work that needed to be done. She lives off of soda, candy, and used to smoke probably a pack a day and never brushed her teeth. Plus shitty teeth run in our family- I had a bunch of work done after my childhood orthodontist broke my 4 front teeth taking my braces off (didn't go to the dentist for nearly a decade after that & got them fixed by my amazing dentist) & when I got my wisdom teeth out, that shitty dentist (who took over my fav dentists practice) broke 2 of my molars (didn't go to a dentist for a few years after that (when my dentist moved back to the states). I paid for all my shit on my own.. While paying for my life expenses too. She lives in my parents house and they cover her childcare & most bills/don't charge rent & buy groceries too. I don't even follow her on fb but my cousins and my dad (!!!) Donated to her fund so it popped up on my feed.

There's a very weird woman at work whose grandbaby needed a medical treatment and she started a GoFundMe account to help her daughter and son-in-law pay for it. For a brief moment I began to feel compassionate toward their situation and wondered if I should pitch in, until I found out more details. The father is in the military, the mother doesn't work, and this is their 5th child. Now a couple years later they just had their 6th baby. I realize this is going to sound cold-hearted, but come the fuck on. If you can't afford the bills, please stop having babies.

In response to a confession. A girl at work sent me a link to her GoFundMe. She's a single mom and I know she was having some medical/insurance issues, so I checked it out. Well she's basically just asking for money to help with bills. Okay...except she's always showing me things she's bought, concerts/festivals she's gone to, and she's taking her son on an out-of-state trip next week. Oh - and she lives at home with her parents. If she was asking for money to help pay for school, I could understand, but...

The entire downtown and south side of our city is torn up for road construction right now due to some REALLY shitty urban planning. Anyways--they have stop signs up at some of the makeshift intersections and I swear, no one knows what the deal is with them. We can't tell if they're 4 way stops or not and I've witnessed about 9 near-misses in the last month at some of these intersections. I freaking HATE road construction for this reason. If they're going to rip up the road, have halfway decent detours.
