Other people

It seems to me that people only want you if they want something from you e.g. money/legal advice/shoulder to cry on/mentoring etc. When they don't need anything they don't bother, they don't want to know.
I'm sick of it. My expectations of people are low, I now have no expectations. I will take it as it comes without hope of anything more.

Angry Britain

People in Britain are angry.

Yes you can walk around with a plastic smile on your face but I know that you are angry.

The disillusioned and discontented lurk beneath the false appearances.

Put down your tools people and look around you.

There are support clubs for the overeaters, alcoholics, gamblers etc but why no support groups for the disconnected and disenchanted? Lets all get together and have a moan, admit that we are fed up to the back teeth of the high cost of living and this dreary grey place. Then lets do something about it, like a mass exodus.

The minimum wage in Britain is something like £6.00 per hour, the average house price is in the region of £160,000. It wont change. The Government has a vested interest in keeping house prices artificially high. Can you think of a better way to keep the masses in check?

Things are getting worse. The social fabric in this country is a joke. Every day I pick up the paper and there are horror stories about knife crime and people being glassed. I'm afraid to go to crowded places anymore.

Its a long standing joke that the English like their drink. Yes, that's an understatement, they drink until they cant drink anymore.

I really don't want to have to be here.

On kids

I've never wanted children.

Apparently that makes me weird, because I am a woman and you are supposed to desire children if you are a women.

All I know is that I don't want children and never have. I don't wish them harm but I simply don't like them, not interested, don't want to know, don't find them cute, etc.

I used to think that for most people children were just something that happened out of poor planning and one just went along with the process thereafter. But, it seems that people do actually go out of their way to have them. People actually plan them!

For some reason today the issue of having kids has really irked me. Its probably a conversation I had with a colleague this morning who was gushing over her life's dream to find suitable husband material and have kids as quickly as possible. Actually, what irks me is that yet again I feel like an alien, don't fit in, cant relate, um sorry nothing to say except I've never wanted them, that's putting it politely.

I want to be free, I want to spend long summers wandering around Europe, maybe join the hippies in Ibiza playing the drums as the sun goes down with beads in my hair (I'm going there in September BTW), no I don't want kids thank you very much.

Am I being quite forceful in my opinion? Well perhaps its just something I feel quite strongly about, its all part of the same thing, when will people consider that there are other ways of living one's life rather than wage slavery and breeding?
