Oh man, I had a very similar experience, with my mother...I was 19 (I'm not much older now). No one understands what it's like to just sit and wait for someone to die. You can't go do things, anything at all, because you feel like you should be home, helping. If you're home, it's surreal. Clinging to something normal, like your phone or watching some TV, feels both comforting and absolutely bizarre. At least that's how I felt.
@aphrabean I've just been buying cans, but I should really invest in a bag of dried chickpeas since I use so much of them. How do you even prepare those? Do you just soak them forever?
Yes yes yes yes yesssssssssss. I would marry chickpeas if I could. Or at least move in with them and get a dog together.
@rosinator email dj pomegranate, anyone that wants to come! her email is up yonder.
@dj pomegranate Emailed!! :D
@allofthewine My like, second or third message was from a 47 year old dude. I am 21. Why would you even think that would be a good idea, old dude??
p.s. I have all of the crafts, and you have all of the wine. WE SHOULD JOIN FORCES PROBABLY
@stuffisthings Not bad....how do you even find a translating gig though?
@dj pomegranate Absolutelyyyy. Friends are even better than employment.
You guyssssss, I found out my ex is already dating someone new (oh, and she looks JUST LIKE ME). So I re-joined OkCupid. It has been less than 24 hours and I already deem OkCupid like probably the worst thing ever. Is there no happy medium between creepy-online-dating and terrible-trying-to-meet-people-in-real-life?
NYC PINNERS. I am so, so, so unemployed. I just graduated. I have a degree in Arts Administration and also in French. Help me if you can and I will love you forever.
