So my birthfather blocked me on Facebook. I haven’t even talked to the guy in ages. Why block me?
Next apartment/home would ideally have:
- Washing machine
- Parking space
- 1.5 bathroom
- Nice tub…that’s kind of largish
Probably can’t get this unless it’s in a house and I don’t know if we even want a house.
Not necessarily, plus renting a house wouldn’t hurt (if we could afford one).
The only places with 1.5 bathrooms would be at least 2 bedrooms so keep that in mind.
With both of our future commutes in mind (LIC/Flatiron) the best locations for this with an affordable price would and good (under hour) commute would be:
Yonkers (this makes the most sense honestly), basically any decent part of Yonkers has a good commute and would have all these things.
South Orange NJ (about an hour commute for each of us), the price fits and we could get all these things, on the downside, train service is less frequent and not all-night.
Montclair NJ (same as South Orange but more expensive)
Staten Island near the Verrazzano Bridge has good prices, ok commute, and affordable places. The con is commuting via express bus all the time which could be terrible some days (traffic). Also doesn’t have a vibrant downtown like the above three do.
Mt. Vernon (in the nicer northern parts), quick commute, affordable housing, closer to friends. Southern part is seedy
New Rochelle (anywhere we can afford), biggish downtown, waterfront city, decent commute, closer to friends
North Bronx (Pelham Pkwy/Pelham BayRiverdale) lots of nature, good food, subway access, close to LI, ok commute
That’s all I’ve got right now. Everything else is either too far away or too expensive. I didn’t list Brooklyn or Queens due to worse apartments for the price (in general).

Having my paycheck bounce= many confused attempts at using my debit card including getting kicked out of a bagel shop and cursing at a light rail ticker dispenser.
I still can’t believe my “boss” joked that my New Year’s resolution would be “getting my paycheck every month”, what a prick.
Holy mother of God. This is a real book.
Apparently, it’s to help kids understand and cope with a parent’s arrest.
I’m looking forward to the sequel: The Day Daddy Knocked Over A Liquor Store & Took Us On The Lam.
Uh…this is a serious issue for a lot of kids. Especially African-American kids, since 1 in 3 black men will be incarcerated in his lifetime. I’m really happy that this is foreign enough to you to be funny - I was lucky not to grow up with this situation either - but for plenty of kids and parents in this country it isn’t. And it’s a good thing that this book exists to help those families - not something to be mocked.
I would love to get this book for my mom’s classroom. A lot of families at the school where she teaches have at least one parent that’s in jail, and most of them are only in for selling drugs to get money to feed their families.
I’m genuinely curious as to how the book is. The one kid I do know whose dad is in jail doesn’t actually know he’s there… Now that I think of it though there are a lot of topics that children’s books could cover: parents fighting, domestic violence, seriously. There’s something important about the message that things get better, there is a way out, etc. There are so many things they don’t teach you at school and then you’re in the real world and don’t know what to do with yourself.
As someone who has a brother in prison and a father who was in prison I can say that such a book could have been informative and even comforting. All I was ever told to do was lie about these things and not talk about it.

Brooklyn is fucking awesome. Brighton Beach was a lot of fun today
I’m jealous of her parties and such. I don’t know why I don’t really have friends but nights like this remind me how nobody would do such cool stuff for me.

I deserve to be treated better for my time and money than I have been. A person can only be kicked in the dirt so many times. I swear these companies demand everything including hundreds of dollars to travel and I get nothing in fucking return, a phone call would’ve been nice. An update maybe? I’m angry.

…my Italian citizenship application hit a bit of a snag so that is out of my immediate future. I also learned that most countries want nothing to do with immigrating someone on the Autism spectrum (I guess understandably) so I have been applying to a lot of jobs in the US.
Anyway if I have any followers from Philly I’d love to hear what you think of it. It has been recommended to me several times so if anyone could shoot me a message that’d be great.
What’s this? It’s the new stuff I added to my Etsy shop.
I don’t even like it here much. Is it worth the hassle of having our privacy utterly invaded just to stay here for 4 months when there is no opportunity here?
Did you ever see a child that looked like you when you were little and you stared him in the eye and he stared back and it was like he was looking into my soul, into my goddamned soul
and in that moment I thought
This is what my future children will look like.
Gotta love it when no one tells you your hair is messy all day…
Random facts: When I was younger I wanted a nose job and I used to wear blue eyeliner, not sure why. I also used to have hair serum that stopped my hair from being messy like this but I can’t find it anymore.
I’ve been waiting years for this GIF. Now I’ve got seven for the price of one.
infomercial people are bad at everything.
