*Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] nebulasan, [livejournal.com profile] kaitydid33087, & [livejournal.com profile] pianogurl330. And Happy Birthday to anyone I've missed.
_______
(32) Your relationship status and how you feel about it.
Single and satisfied with that 99% of the time. I don't really want to get married but there is a background fear that if I don't keep friendships up & don't have a hubby I'll be alone when I get old.

(33) Where you’d like to be in ten years.
Not paying student loans & comfortably in my house. Oh, and hopefully taking another trip to Europe.

(34) Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Drugs: it depends. I don't really have a problem w/ marijuana other than its illegality. Tobacco may be bad for you but it doesn't make you act stupid. Otherwise, I'm a bit iffy. Alcohol I have no problem with as long as people don't act too stupid (you know, drive drunk, put themselves in dangerous situations, etc).
______
*Saw the same 2 puppies on the side of the road on my way into work that I saw on my ride home Thursday in basically the same place. We have no shelter/rescue in my county. If they're still there tomorrow, I'm gonna see if the shelter (that I plan to volunteer w/ as soon as I get my tetanus booster) the county over will take them. My vet does let people drop them w/ her, but I hate to put that on her if I can find somewhere for them to go. I'd keep them, but I can't really afford 2 more (one maybe), but until I'm at the other house, I'd have to get Daddy to okay it & he definitely won't.

I definitely approve of your goal for the next 10 years! And poor puppies, hopefully they get help soon. I used to volunteer at an animal shelter that was right next to our apartment when I was still in Florida - best decision ever. It really does not feel like work at all <3

The closest one to me is new & doesn't have things sorted yet, but I plan to try to get involved. I need the booster shot anyways, but I've still been putting it off. Flu shots aren't that bad, but the tetanus ones hurt like a bitch.

I agree... even though not many people even understand that... and yes, being all alone is also not a very great perspective... :/

Good luck with the puppies... I hope they are okay...

That's a good 10 years plan! :)

I don't think you'll be alone... Times have changed and I don't think our own life will be that different when we're old... We'll keep using our technology, or maybe we will move into a more advanced one and we'll be exactly as we are now... Old folks now got married in the past where time were different... Our grandparents generation was not even allowed to marry who they wanted too in certain social levels... Family and carry on the name was a priority and that was all they knew... Then our parents grew up in a better world and then there's us... I think there's no need to fear loneliness today... :)

Single and satisfied with that 99% of the time. - Same though.

From: [identity profile] corellian-sugar.livejournal.com


Yeah, I get the single and satisfied thing. I'm in the same boat. I just don't want to be in a relationship with someone who's going to use me and take advantage of me (like in the past). I'd rather be on my own. And ditto with the student loans... god, I am so damn ready for that to be paid off. Sigh.

Hm, this is a rather personal question, so I don't mind at all if you wish to answer, but I'm just curious...

You keep saying you don't want to get married, but are you saying that more as just not believing in marriage or just wanting to stay completely single? Also, you talk about not wanting to get married, but what's your stance on children?

Again, these are personal questions, so I'm really sorry if I'm stepping over boundaries here.

I have no problem with the institution of marriage, I just don't know that I want to live w/ someone forever. I'm not patient enough and I kinda need my own space.
Also, Where I'm at in the "Bible-belt" and having a position in church, living w/ someone out of wedlock openly would be a problem.

What I'd really like tbh, is what a one of the older local female attorneys has going: her hubby lives and works down where we've got the beach house and she lives and works a town over from mine. So they're on their own or hanging w/ friends in the week and spend their weekends together....so I guess I need a weekend husband? lol. The fact she's rich & he's loaded doesn't hurt the attraction of that lifestyle.

As far as kids, I don't plan to have any. I'm not opposed to the idea, though pregnancy & childbirth doesn't sound pleasant. My real issue w/ kids is I can't imagine I'll ever be able to afford them. There's so many things kids need and I would never have them if I couldn't give them that. Also, a lot of people stop giving their dogs/cats all their needs once they have kids and just providing the dogs w/ flea prevention/food/maybe rabies vaccines to have more money for the kids & I'm not willing to not provide for them.
If I get my rich weekend husband, I may debate kids. But for me to have kids, I definitely need a rich husband or at least one w/ good pay AND insurance.

Thank you so much for answering me! I completely understand all your points.

From: [identity profile] batmarg.livejournal.com


No problem. I sometimes forget that outside of my rural, Bible-belt area most people don't think that relationships have to lead to marriage if they're going to last.

From: [identity profile] hamarakissa.livejournal.com


Aww poor puppies! idk, I'd say that if your vet is willing to take them and can, do unless you can get the shelter to take them once you start volunteering.

I feel the same way as you do with alcohol and drugs.

Single and satisfied is where I am, too, 99% of the time like you mentioned. Though I think it would be nice to find that one person that would be willing to put up with all my BS and accept me for me; I just don't think that person is out there :x

From: [identity profile] batmarg.livejournal.com


If I can manage to get them, we think the shelter will work, otherwise I'll try the vet's office. It's be nice if there was a rescue or shelter locally. We've got a bit of a stray dog problem around here. They're rarely ever aggressive, but in town there's probably about 3 packs of strays. We were caroling a few years back & ran up w/ a huge pack of mostly pit mixes. They were all really sweet, but smelled awful & desperately needed a flea bath.

Though I think it would be nice to find that one person that would be willing to put up with all my BS and accept me for me; I just don't think that person is out there :x
Aww. They probably are. I'm unfortunately really impatient & feel like I'd be the one who wouldn't put up w/ someone else's bs, which would not be fair to them. (When my mom has asked me why I don't date I've actually told her "I'm barely willing to put up w/ my OWN bs, so I certainly don't want to put up w/ someone else's")

I like your 10-year plan!

Aww, poor puppers! I hope that the shelter the next county over will take them!

I feel like I'll be paying my student loans off until I die. :/

From: [identity profile] batmarg.livejournal.com


I feel like that too...though I think there's some period after which whatever you haven't paid off drops, at least in GA. And Obama was talking about putting in a thing where lawyers get loan forgiveness if they work in underprivileged areas (they do that for doctors already), but he never followed it through. It probably would've been after I got out of school regardless.

From: [identity profile] emaciatedwords.livejournal.com


Oh that'd be nice. lol. I know certain types of careers qualify you for government loan forgiveness after 10 years of payments but my issue is most of mine are private loans. That would have been nice if so!
