Agree with you on this - that quiet rage that sits inside. My hubby and I are from qld (only moved to vic in last year) and we haven’t been able to see our friends and family since Xmas. Our family and friends in qld don’t get it either which is infuriating. They just don’t understand what it’s like to be restricted to do normal things and say generic crap like ‘oh it will get better’. I hate living here In our tiny 1 bedroom apartment, I hate that lockdown made us use all our savings because our work was cut, I hate the restrictions that keep us inside for 23hrs a day, and I hate that it’s all completely out of my control.
Omg I completely agree, it’s disgusting how Victoria is being portrayed in the media. All my family is in qld and they keep harping on about how no one is social distancing in Victoria and how it must be terrible here and I just want to SCREAM at them. Unless you live in vic you don’t know sh*t - it is completely normal here and people are distancing etc just like everywhere else so don’t insult my home!
I ask people where they’re from regardless of how they look because I myself am not from Melbourne. I moved here from another city and I’m just making conversation (to talk about if they like Melbourne too if they like the weather you know) nothing sinister or race related! It almost feels like as a white person you can’t ask an innocent questions now out of fear of being perceived as offensive even though you don’t mean anything by it.
100% agree with this! Everyone I talk to is completely confused. The government is just scolding citizens no matter what we do. Either we’re too panicked (buying everything) or too relaxed (going to venues).
How can we know what to do when they say we’re in a pandemic and non-essential services will be closed, and yet they keep hairdressers, retail giants, every bloody service and schools open?? How can you go to the beach and get in trouble, yet getting you hair done at a crowded shopping centre is ok?
My issue is that we booked a trip to Europe a couple of weeks ago (for the end of this year) then realised we probably can’t realistically afford to go anymore after reviewing our savings.
I have been trying to cancel every since and can’t through to anyone! We definitely can’t even afford to go now with all the covid-19 shutdowns and our cancellation fees are increasing with every passing day, yet we can’t get through to anyone.
My hubby and I are keen to self isolate it and when we get sick/have to! It will be a fun time together like a mini holiday :)
Actually PCOS has been linked to genetically where it’s likely to run in families according to newer studies. It is not caused by the pill. Teenage girls present with the PCOS symptoms (acne, moodiness, abnormal period, and or excess facial hair) and then are put on the pill to treat it (as hormones in pill correct hormonal imbalance removing the symptoms) - essentially masking the issue. It is usually diagnosed later in life when the woman goes off the pill trying to conceive, and can’t fall pregnant. - someone who has PCOS, and been treating it through diet/exercise for two years.
Poor Micah. They totally made him out to be a villain on Bride and Prejudice with their heavy editing.
My husband and I were married at 28 which isn’t really young but unfortunately I look about 20 and my husband looks about 35 (even though I’m older than him!) so the judgement from vendors was strong. Even as we checked into our hotel (we had a destination wedding), there was a ‘oh you’re the bride? But you’re so young!’ It was so uncomfortable and insulting! And shopping with my mum for her outfit, involved a ‘you can’t be the bride, you’re too young!’ comment from the sales assistant. It really put a dampener on my spirits.
That ‘Falling Inn Love’ movie was so bad, my husband and I couldn’t even finish it!! It was like they thought that no one would be able to tell the difference between an Aussie and NZ accent!
I agree with DP and NomiMalone, who on earth is even paying for this type of thing!? ‘Covering’ for the bride by making up some kind of story like you’re actually friends? That’s just so sad! Can these people not be honest to their friends and family? Why would you want randoms at your wedding? Are they embarrassed by their lack of friendships? Who are they trying to impress? If you’re hiring ACTORS to attend your wedding to pretend to be your friends - I think you’ve missed the point of what weddings are about.
What a weird (and mean) way to break up with someone. I get that she didn’t want to be with him anymore but couldn’t she have just waited a bit longer so it didn’t look like it was because of his sickness? How would she have felt if he’d broken up with her the way she did to him.
I wonder if she’d be so forgiving if it was her children filmed in those videos... that whole family is sick to forgive him.
Completely agree! Although I never grew up with dogs (only cats), and now I’m really uninterested in dogs, plus think they’re dirty and loud.
