In the last 3 months I’ve gone to Philadelphia twice, Florida, Puerto Rico, San Francisco, central coast California, the Azores, trips to see my family in NYC. I’ve been keeping busy! I’m not planning on venturing far again until after New Years. I’ve got flights booked to New Orleans and I’m hoping to see DC soon.. But at the same time, I did just take a $20,000 a year pay cut. It makes me happier though. Less money, but more time. It’s all relevant.
One of these days I’m going to hit someone in Lawrence with my car and not feel bad AT ALL. People just jumping across the street, not at crosswalks, or crossing when I have a green light and they just decide it’s their turn to go for no good reason. These people aren’t even trying to run across, like a proper jaywalker. Slowly ambling across the avenue like they
want to get hit so they can sue you and not have to work any more.
I’d like to end my rant staying that I am a jaywalker myself but I look for cars and run my ass across the street!
This is the street where one of my patients lives. The first time I came here, not going to lie, I was a little bit scared. This is not the nicest section of Lawrence. When I approached the front door, there’s more trash, a broken fence, and graffiti on the house from the neighborhood kids. This is low income housing. There is no doorbell. Once I get through that door, it’s probably one of the cleanest apartments I’ve ever been inside of. The single mother that lives here scrubs this place from top to bottom more than weekly and it shows. The inside is nothing like the outside. I have patients that live in much nicer zip codes with nicer edifices and nicer things, but most of those places are disgusting compared to this woman’s home. She takes so much pride in her home and taking care of her mentally ill and developmentally disabled daughter. She might not speak a word of English but she’s one of my favorites.
Answer: who cares? Stop being an asshole!
I just read this article and I guess it sent me off the edge a bit…
