Seattle A Town I Love To HATE!

If your sensitive to Seattle bashing….TOO BAD!  Go read someone elses blog.   With that said, today the temperatures are finally getting decent 79 degrees about time!   I can’t wait to break out the shorts I’m stoked not to have to carry an umbrella, wearing a jacket which is lame in June.   Sure enough I see people out here wearing warm winter clothing in JUNE!  I’M thinking that perhaps these folks are special needs?  No, they don’t seem like that but it makes me kind of wonder.   Here is an example of what I’m talking about.  Today while I’m boarding the bus and remember its 79 degrees!  I notice a woman in a brand spanking new thick white sweatsuit only problem is its too warm out to wear such a thing!   She even has the hood up.   Oh yeah CRAZY as a bedbug looking like a grim reaper only in white.

So I board the bus its really warm.  Unfortunately there’s no A/C so that means the top half of the windows are open.  The windows are about five inches in width.  I go to take a seat at the back of the bus, I sit down, and there is this woman who sits on the bench seat right in front of me.   This woman is closing the windows!  So I bite my tongue to try to sit through my ride.  Sure enough?  This woman is asking the passenger sitting next to her if it would be alright to CLOSE another window.   It was at this time that I got up from my seat, and said as I was making my way down the aisle this: “It’s 79 degrees out & you want the windows closed” .  I had to say something because it just didn’t make any sense as warm as it was.  I saw more folks with warm jackets i.e. down jackets, sweaters, do any of these people tune into the Weather Channel?  Or even the local news for the forecast?  Or perhaps these folks are sweating the pounds off.  Yeah, that must be it!  …lol.   Oh Seattle, how I hate you so.  It’s just the motivation I need to get that degree finished then apply for a job out of Washington state.   Destination? Hawaii one day to work for the Department Of Navy.   That is my dream!  Well at least I have my decent apartment but of course I want more out of life than just a decent apartment.  I want to live in a city where its natives aren’t so weird & dysfunctional, as well as these folks being severely personality challenged.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
