Wrote that in my member's diary.
TONIGHT WE DINE IN a really perplexing ...house.
That would be kinda funny but I reckon it's dangerous riding around in the dark..
Aren't you scared?...
i watch too many homicide shows..
I would love to have seen you up the ladder knocking though..
Well, it's not that I'm afraid of dying, because I'm not...
I'm in a pretty small area; everyone knows everyone, no one is out driving about after midnight except on the weekends- when there's parties.
I installed reflectors and a headlamp on my bike, so I can see and be seen by cars, I guess...
There is a serial killer in the area-- no joke-- but by 'in the area' I mean, he abducts people from an area with about 300km radius. 2 local people have gone missing in the last 3 years or so... I'm really not concerned for my life when I go out at night though.
The biggest danger would be me-hitting a deer that darted out infront of me- and me falling off my bike. <this has not happened yet.
I hope no burglars read what you just wrote, because you just gave them a blue print to break in... :laugh:
Well, they could burglarize any number of houses in town, then.
Like... all of them.
We do have a rather large guard dog though, and some people still activate their silent alarms even though the doors are unlocked.
I never knew anyone who locked their doors until I moved to the city for college-- and even then... still lots of people who don't bother.
Although i admit Canada is a safe place, but not to that extent. You must be living in a truly small isolate area? Since Vancouver is full of junkies i doubt you're from there and not lock your doors. Maybe, erm Saskatchewan... :tongue:
I've been in Ontario all my life. I've never left even once.
I've never lived in the 'true north' Ontario-- much more like central Ontario.
In college, I lived in Toronto and had a few experiences with shady characters and attempted assaults and such... but I don't feel any less safe, really.
Growing up, we never locked the doors.
In highschool, we locked the doors from time to time and now- we lock the doors only when it's necessary to keep the elements outside where they belong.
I don't know a whole lot of people who feel any different though.
Surely you lock your bathroom door... :mellow: and wow lol i always thought you were from the west side like BC.
Also it's 5am. Do you always stay up this late? Night time person?
No. I've had opportunities to move to BC for work but never took them. I'll admit, I'd probably have alot more work if I lived out west; but my whole life and my family and everything I know is in Ontario. It may be awhile yet before I pick up and leave.
I DO lock the bathroom door every time I go in.
I'm a bit OCD about that.
Even if I just step into the bathroom to brush my hair or my teeth-- I lock the door.
I also open the shower curtain to make sure no one is hiding in there... and before I have a shower or get in the tub, I check the faucet to make sure there aren't like... any tiny spy cameras in it.
A big part of my paranoia is checking every nook and cranny to make sure I've got complete privacy even if I don't necessarily need it.
I got out of the habit of locking the door for awhile, in college.
I'd use the washroom in my apartment with the door open, sometimes. It was like a new magical freedom!
One day though-- I was in the shower; door was closed- I was relaxed; enjoying myself...
My bf came home earlier than usual and snuck into the bathroom and scared the SHIT out of me- reaching into the shower to grab me through the black shower curtain.
That was probably the first time in YEARS and YEARS that I'd actually screamed outloud.
After that, I started to lock the door again.
and yes, I'm always up this late.
I don't sleep.
I have not slept properly since I was a toddler. It's a genetic sleep disorder that sleep clinic specialists have not been able to help me straighten up.
So I just learned to live off of a couple hours of sleep every day.
Sometimes I don't sleep at all- zero minutes- for days and days.
Longest I've gone was 8 days. By then, I was hallucinating and passed out- face first at my desk in class.
My classmates told me that I was calling Miss. Crawford "Charles" and clawing at my face.
Oh wow, that's severe. Do you take any sleeping aids at all? After 2 days of no sleep i would get really angry at everything and halucinate and feel like my heart would explode. How do you manage to work at all?
Well, my body has just adapted to run on very little sleep.
I am generally very low energy because of a blood condition, and combined with the sleeping disorders; I am prone to fainting, acne, general sickness - but I've gotten used to all of that.
It's normal to me.
What doesn't seem normal to me is people who are rude and bitchy when they don't get more than 5 hours of sleep her night XD
I've gotten used to hearing all about 'how tired' everyone is and don't bother to say anything.
When I had told friends in highschool and college that I don't sleep they kind of brushed it away and laughed like; "Yeahh- I know! Neither do I!"
No one seems to understand until I come over for a sleep over- or a week long visit to their house... then they wake up at 12 and 3 and 5 and 7...and notice that I'm still wide awake.
I took sleeping aids/pills all through highschool. All different kinds, high doses with scary side-effects; but I grew immune to all of them before I could feel any actual change in my sleep pattern.
I do take some homeopathic sleep aids every evening; but it's more part of a routine than anything.
Nothing really changes my sleep unless I get deathly sick and stoned on nighttime cough-syrup.
I think I've just grown to be a low energy, mellow person as I matured.
When I was younger, yeah- not sleeping did have negative affects on me. I got angry easily and I complained alot... there's no reason to complain about something that I can't change though. So just... live with it.
I am soooo jealous of these sound sleepers like your brother. My mom is the same way. Out cold!
I'm so saddened to hear you're going through all this. I'm not too fond of sleeping either because they give me awful nightmares. But i can't imagine not sleeping for days. I assume you sometime lie down and close your eyes at least to rest your eyes.
And yea, i wish i have a deep sleep also.
Yeah, I know, right?
I remember mom trying to wake him up for school in the morning when we were kids...
She'd be standing in his doorway and I'd run down the stairs and stop for a moment then BOLT right into his room and start jumping on his bed, yelling; "Wake up! wake up! Time for school! Time for school!!" and some days he just wouldn't wake up! XD
It would take a good 20 minutes to just get him out of bed!
...he was an hour late for school ALOT
Ah-- yeah, I have to.
I get constant dry, burning sensations in my eyes- and migraines daily.
Those are just other things I've gotten used to though.
When I was together with my ex, and we lived together-- he would come home from work, eat and then usually go to bed.
I'd go to bed with him-- wait until he was asleep and then crawl out of bed and go back into my office to mess around on the computer.
There really wasn't a whole lot else I could do unless I felt like staring at him...or listening to his snoring or something -___-
It's kind of weird sharing a bedroom with someone when you don't really sleep.
It's like a pointless room that's just there to mock you.
'The only option I had left was to knock on my teenaged brother's window--a boy who could sleep soundly through a fucking hurricane filled with cats getting raped by dogs; SCREAMING and hissing-- '
LOL, omg this made me laugh...even though it was probly quite dramatic and annoying at that point in time. I probly would've just smashed my front doors windows to get in and get pissed at who ever locked me out XD.
A serial killer :yikes::yikes:
Geez if I was you i'd be terrified he'd get me..not a pleasant way to go..
Ohh, no... it sucked when I was stuck outside in the heat; already sweating to death with nothing to drink. Obviously though, it's an admittedly funny story.
I'll have to bring my house key with me from now on- incase the serial door locker strikes again.
Haha, the serial door locker!!!
That story did make me laugh. I can't even imagine not locking doors though. My grandmother lives in a REALLY rural area where everyone used to leave their doors unlocked. Then someone got robbed, and that put an end to leaving the doors unlocked.
