Well, I right I would update everyone on what has happened. We separated for a few weeks and then. .... I found out I was pregnant. About 2 months now. So we have worked things out. He got a job! Which amazed me! And is taking care of me during this time that I really need it. He's working on his anger issues and is definitely pulling me than his weight right now. I guess at the end of the day when two ppl are meant to be together the universe will find a way to keep them together. So, in 6 or 7 months I'll have a little peanut traveler ♡and I'll get to impart the wisdom I have and he has to it. The universe works in crazy ways, amairight?

because everyone knows having a kid is the perfect way to maintain a healthy relationship?

That's not the way I'm viewing it. Gotta love it when bc fails :/ but I view it as a blessing. The universe thought enough of me that it brought me a child. Now whether I raise this child alone, or with him we will see. Until then he's attempting to be more proactive and helping me alot more. So at the end of the day, I'm happy because I am blessed and he's happy, so until the future becomes the present, we're just taking it one day at a time :) although I see your point Matt alot of people feel a "baby" well save an otherwise floundering relationship. Luckily I believe I have a more balanced head on my shoulders.

for whatever reason i feel like i should stick my nose back in here and voice my opinion that i agree that having a "baby" (as you put before with the quotes) is a awful way to fix a relationship. from yer previous posts it sounds like you ignored most of the advice that people gave you, most of which ide say was pretty solid. i understand that its difficult to break the pattern that yer in with the father of yer "baby". whether or not you feel blessed to get knocked up ide say that its pretty fucked to bring a "baby" into this world when yer in what ide call a pretty classic abusive relationship, that youv admitted to knowing its fucked. that doesnt exactly scream balanced head on shoulders kinda thing to me. all the best to you dude i honestly hope shit works out for you.

Though I appreciate the "advice" I think my life is my own to live. Hence housing up, working and taking care of my health. And at this point, it's probably time for me to bow out of this social networking site. Although I wish you ask the best in your travels. Just remember, not everyone has to wake up and live your life everyday. So Remember take everyone's advice with a grain of salt. Because you never know where their opinions are based out of. Have good travels my friends. ♡

well, if you want to bow out of this social networking site thats of course yer call, i just figured that somebody who sarted a thread asking internet strangers for "advice" (again im using quotes here to poke fun at yer use of them when talking about a baby) then youd maybe take that advice to heart instead of playing the "i do what i want its my life you dont know me" thing. as for taking peoples advice with a grain of salt, of course yer right, as far as i know we have never met, but i have a pretty good idea where yer opinons are based from, it sounds like they are based from making a pretty risky decision that not only involves you but possibly a kid. its absolutly yer life and whatever choice you make wont make a difference to me, im just a stranger on the internet who thinks yer making a dumb mistake.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
