So if she wasn’t underage and was drinking then it wouldn’t have happened? What exactly is the police saying? She’s responsible for the perpetrator’s crimes?

2 days ago, my little brother threw my laptop over the table and onto the floor while I was out of the room. It was the only thing I cared and and depended on. People come and go, but my laptop has always stayed. I became really sad when it wouldn’t turn on even after I had disconnected the battery, held down the power button for 1 minute, and re-plugged the AC adapter. I’m typing with my new university laptop right now but I really miss that laptop, I’ve been trying to distract myself from being sad(because of the laptop) at university here by eating a LOT and trying to have fun. I’m also mad at myself that I wasn’t more careful, that laptop was costly and it’ll be hard for me to get another amazing laptop if that one isn’t fixed, plus I still have university to pay for. Internet this swift must have a better computer to go along with. Until then, there will be a void where my wonderful gaming laptop is supposed to be on my wide desk.

On July 27, 2013, a young teenager in a streetcar was shot at 9 times by a Toronto police officer, for holding a small knife. After that, he was tasered by another officer. Obviously this teenager had mental problems but he did not deserve to be shot at 9 times, or even shot at all. It was a plea for help, answered by an execution. He was a just a human being in need, not a vicious animal, and he didn’t deserve to be treated like one. He did threaten people on the streetcar and ordered everyone off. goodness knows for what reason, but he didn’t hurt anyone at all, and honestly I don’t think he intended to. Sammy Yatim used to work at McDonald’s, the same one that one of my exes works at as a manager. My ex describes Sammy as a very positive guy who was a great help with brower(stock up) shifts. He had a future planned, he told a friend he was going to focus on education.

The news of the shooting was absolutely disgusting to me, I have a little 11-yr old brother who has severe autism and sometimes has violent fits. I can imagine my little brother being shot just because he is not normal and needs help. That would be revolting. People with mental illnesses do not deserve to be executed, they deserve help and care. Ideally, programs/services that help people with mental problems and in crises. Sadly, with Canada being a capitalist society, there is little possibility of this ever happening and oppressed members of society will continue to be brutalized because police do not know how to deal with these types of situations.

I find it appalling that the constable James Forcillo who was charged with second-degree murder of Sammy Yatim was released with $500 000 bail. Not one day in prison and he gets out free. However, I should be somewhat grateful that this police officer was even criminally charged. As of 2012, out of 3400 SIU investigations, only 95 were criminally charged, only 16 out of the 96 were convicted, and 3 out of 16 serving jail time. The price of bail is irrelevant, it is injustice for Sammy Yatim.

After getting some answers out of my ex through hours of texting each other last night, I realize now that I was always meant to be single.

There has been a few failed longish-term relationships already but now I believe that they were never meant to exist. I should have just been single my entire life. But it’s too late for that. From now on, I’ll staying single :)

It just feels weird when someone does that to you. When someone has been with you through your worst and treated you their best. When they first started supporting you when you only had a few followers. It’s kind of hard to prepare for it, when they become the opposite of what they were.

I’m not even talking about the initial breakup, just what he said after. I’ve always done my best to be a good and supportive friend/gf but everything is going to fade into the past now. It’s not really easy for me to deal with such a big change

Also, I’ve moved back into my old place with my parents, completely unrelated to the breakup. It’s easier for me to get to work here, transportation is a lot cheaper and the buses actually run late on weekends here. Of course, it means I can’t stream as late as I would like, but staying up is bad for me anyway and I get to work late and don’t make as much as I should be.

Soooo… I guess I’ll move on eventually, when I get used to the change.
