    The #1 Most Important Job in the World 

    this post is in response to: http://tdawneightyone.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/mommy-guilt-oh-i-thought-jacking-up-my-body-and-sanity-was-enough-silly-me/ i will be the asshole and call bullshit on this post. i am so sick of seeing those obnoxious bumper stickers that proclaim. “my child is on the honor roll” or something else equally lame. parents swell up with pride when their child does something great and wonderful, Youtube & FB is full of that shit. but let their child do something wrong, and then we hear, “oh parenting is a crap shoot.”


    being a parent is not a crap shoot. it’s a responsibility, one not to be taken lightly. songs, swearing and clothing won’t send your child down the wrong path but being too lenient, wanting to be best friends or being a drill sergeant will hurry them down that road. i want to stab a person every time i hear, “oh you don’t have kids?” as if squirting out pups somehow makes you holier, smarter and in tune with the secrets of the universe. OctoMom, enough said.


    children are a product of their parents. period. end of story. i have seen too much of what goes on behind closed doors to know the apple never falls far from the tree. being a parent is a very heavy responsibility. Mom & Dad are equally responsible. they need to teach their offspring the difference between right and wrong. they need to also understand that their kids have eyes and ears, they see what’s going on between mom and dad and they internalize it, good and bad. so if you are doing what’s right and giving your kids a firm moral foundation, then there should be no guilt, ever. being a Mom or Dad isn’t the hardest job in the world. it is the MOST important job in the world.

      Lovely last words, that you include ‘Dad’, most don’t.

      I shared this on my FB page. You really got me thinking about Mom guilt vs. accepting responsibility for our actions, how the two are related and how they are different monsters all together. Here is the link to my page if you care to follow along…if anyone responds anyway!

        thanks so much. i was worried you would take it the wrong way. at the end of the day, if you raise your kids to respect themselves and question things that don’t quite feel right, then you’ve done your job as a parent. i just get so angry when i keep hearing over and over again about teen boys raping passed out drunk girls. who’s raising these boys that they think it’s not only ok to rape, but ok to film it and laugh about it. it’s crazy. and most of those parents blame the girl. wtf?!? so that is where i was coming from. when i was a teen and saw a passed out guy, i didn’t think, ‘oh let me take advantage and rape him’. so parents have a lot of work to do instilling in their kids a moral foundation, but how can they when dad goes to strip clubs every friday night with the boys. it’s all connected. kids learn from what they see going on at home. ok, i worked a double and have to go back in at 2:45pm, so i will try to sleep for 2 hours:)

    nice nurses finish last 

    I won’t bore you with office BS. If you held a job anywhere, you already know there are incompetent superiors who try to hide their flaws by covering their ass, or rather, throwing YOU under the bus. Blah, blah, blah, long story short, after working nearly 20 hours straight today, I am going to apply to medical school.

    I will finish (maybe) my Family Nurse Practitioner track which is four more semesters counting this one. But I’ve just had it with cunt nurses. No apologies. I’m slow because I address nearly every little fire. Quick nurses who finish early do so because they are rude bitches who don’t let the patients speak. Period. That’s not me. And patients don’t complain about the bitch nurse because they are too afraid to. So WTF?

    I get angry. I get motivated. This is my life. It’s a scene from HEAT with Robert DeNiro:

    “A guy told me one time, “Don’t let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner.”

    If I’m not happy (feel the heat) I walk, burn the bridge, piss on it, salt it, and walk off into the sunset.  Fuck it.  I am the queen of starting over. Sooooooooo, I just have to find a med school that will accept me. I can’t seem to stop challenging myself:)

    the trap of paying for a WordPress Theme 


    If you have followed or recently looked at this blog, you may have noticed that it looks a bit more adult, professional, or better. But paying for this Basics Math Theme ($75), has left me with nothing but headaches. I’ve wasted hours trying to do simple things my free Minimalist Theme did automatically, like Reblog or post YouTube videos that weren’t cut off on the left side of the screen.

    It’s these little things that push a person over the edge. Something as simple as posting, has now become something that angers me. I was angry all day today, and I could not figure out why until I tried to ReBlog a great post and it completely blew up my blog.

    I have two scholarship essays to complete by the end of the month and I’m not writing them because I’m trying to write source code. Really? Yes, really? I would have a better chance inventing cold fusion, than trying to write code for my site. I don’t understand Shortcode, CSS, or

    . It may as well be hieroglyphics.

    When I use my hard earned money to improve my site, it should work better than the free themes. Correct? I can already hear the tech geeks and their geekie voices, “well your theme doesn’t support blah, blah, blah, geek, geek, geek” SO, what you’re actually saying is that the more money I spend at WordPress, the less the return I will receive. And stop telling me to post it. You have my name, address, telephone number and now my money. Why am I running you down? Fix it! Just fix it! Wait. Let me guess. I need to pay for a service contract.

    What you tech geeks don’t understand or care about, is that this little piece of nothing, my blog, is an extension of me. I care when something goes wrong with it, or I can’t get something simple done. You may think I am stupid because I don’t understand code, but if a genius can not explain something in terms the listener can understand, then who is the stupid one?

    Just fix the problem. Just fix it. (Could anyone tell me why this is aligned this way? This is the $%^# I’m talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
