No, you don’t want anything to do with me.

Guess who the duck got an A on that insufferable physics lab report.

I get super offended when people tell me I’m going to want kids someday after I’ve told them that no, I don’t ever want kids.  
I’m almost 30 years old, if I wanted kids, I would have had them by now.
I would NOT make a good mother, I will NOT regret not having kids, and I DO know what real love is.

Amen!

And the worst thing about that argument is that it relies completely on the selfishness and greed of the parent. To guilt trip someone into having children, actively or passively, is basically telling them “you should make a whole new person just so we don’t think badly of you”, no concern at fucking all for the kid that’s brought into a society that does shit like that, to parents who give in so easily to peer pressure and actually care for the good opinions of nobodies.
You should have children because you can offer them a good life and want to share it with them, not because “well I ought to have children so I can have a fulfilling life like these people say, and all that joy and meaning and whatnot”. That is no reason to have kids, and it ruins the child’s life to be born to someone that dumb and shallow.

EXACTLY! Why the fuck would anyone want someone who literally considers children the bane of their existence to have kids?!?!?! I’m tired of that, “You’re gonna change your mind!” fuckery. No. They never think, “Gee, that kid’s parent NEVER wanted them and so that kid actually has a crummy life.” Parents (whether they intentioned children or not) have to want to be a parent in order to even have a shot at doing it well. Nobody should ever try to make individuals who don’t want kids have kids. That argument is basically asking to screw someone who’s not even born yet’s life up. No. Have common sense. And after reviewing some comments on this post, I see that some people think that the purpose of this post is to shame people who DO have kids/try to make them feel badly, which it obviously (well, perhaps not because some people are more simple-minded than they realize) isn’t. Moral of the story, don’t tell anyone what to do with their own reproductive organs. These things just grind my gears because I have known ever since I was old enough to think at all that I did not want children. I also despised being a child, honestly. I enjoy the freedom—even the heavier responsibility—that comes with being an adult. I haven’t changed my mind since, and I never will. That doesn’t make me a bad person. No one is selfish for wanting one less stressor in their life, because ultimately everyone deserves to be happy. Having children is simply not in that equation for me. Meanwhile, I don’t try to piss people off by telling them to NOT have kids if they really want them.

Just saw a BW/WW couple kiss on the train. It was sweet they weren’t afraid to express their love.

I feel negative

This coming week is going to suck SO hard because both my parents will be out of town for work, which means that my twin and I will have to wake up at 6-a-fucking-m to drop my eleven-year-old sister’s ass off at school. This is considerably more inconvenient for me because I have to go to an 8am physics class Tuesdays and Thursdays, with the addition of the MCAT prep course Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesday nights from 6:30pm-9:00. That’s ridiculous. I feel like my ability to do as well as I want on this test is already being negatively impacted, and it’s all simply because my little sister even exists. I’m not a horrible person—I’m really not—I’m just trying to make my future happen and certain people are already holding me back from it. I can’t function nearly as well when sleep-deprived, so I’m going to be really, really unhappy this week. I just want to catch a fucking break for once in my life. Just once. I’ll be happy to get a 35 on the MCAT, whether I get in or not. If I don’t get in, regardless of my score, I think I’m just going to get an associate’s degree and become an RN. I’m not going to waste too much of my youth trying to obtain something that is really up to chance for everyone who even tries, whether they are a perfect person or not.

Successful day of studying. I almost finished all the biology homework (Princeton Review course started last Sunday). I got 100% on FSQ and 83% on one of the passages. I’m getting better after reviewing material I already read. I didn’t take biochem so a lot of stuff is somewhat foreign to me. I don’t find studying anything as painful as I find studying physics. I really hate physics and that will simply never change. I don’t like things where I kill my brain to try and understand and then get jacked up on tests. In contrast, I actually enjoyed the first organic chemistry class (something that if I had gone back in time and told myself while taking orgo, I would have laughed my ass off). The instructor sounds like a surfer. It’s kind of entertaining. I like things that make more sense that I can actually do. I am seriously not looking forward to studying physics. I think I’d rather be struck by lightning. I’m serious.
