The Unit: squ33ble legally-bitchtastic catch-the-ghost monsterkissed here is an idea: normalise the idea that adopting kids is a valid option even for parents who could conceive a child themselves, and not just an inferior backup option for parents who can't Yesterday one of the girls in the unit who's about my age was complaining about her period and expressing a wish for the doctors nearby to "Just take me down to the OR real quick and give me a hysterectomy." Immediately half the nurses (all mothers mind you) start telling her about how she's gonna regret it and she doesn't know yet if she really doesn't want kids, blah blah blalh Anyways, I was walking past so l said, "You know what, you do what you want. If you want end up wanting kids later go adopt some, we've got plenty that get left behind on the second floor [our labor and delivery unit]." All the older nurses shut down so fast and the girl I was talking to suddenly threw up her hands and me and said, "See??? That's what l mean! THANK YOU." NORMALIZE THIS SHIT!! WE REALLY DO HAVE WOMEN COME INTO L&D TO HAVE A BABY AND THEN JUST LEAVE IT HERE AND TAKE OFF. ADOPT!!! Also, don't ask the parents of adopted children if they had fertility problems. That shit is personal. My sister adopted her son and when asked if she is infertile, she likes to ask them what position their children were conceived with, because that's on the same level of appropriateness Like, some people really DO want to experience pregnancy on their own, but that's not the only way to be a parent? On the other hand, some people want kids but DON'T want to be pregnant themselves. Adoption is awesome Birthing a baby is awesome. Hiring a surrogate is awesome. Stop judging parental options, as long as the kids are safe and well taken care of! Family is a choice

The Unit is called “Black Lions.” They posted the following on Facebook: “Our Task Force suffered a terrible tragedy yesterday in Afghanistan resulting in the death of one of our Black Lions and the wounding of two others. All families have been notified and there were no other injuries in the attack. Our thoughts and prayers are with CPL Maciel and his Family during this time of grief. As with any combat-related death, this incident is under investigation and details will not be discussed in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation.

The Unit: Sept 25, 2017 Howdy Neighbour, VMy name is and I live in the unit below you on the third floor. I'm writing this note in the h you might be able to help me out with something It seems that you may work some non-traditional hours and potentially arrive home around midni most week nights (that's just my assumption. I'm not going to pretend to know your schedule). Th unfortunate drawback to living in an older building like ours is that sometimes the sound travels between the units above and below quite easily You obviously are not making unwarranted noise and please don't think I'm a crazy person claimin jumping around up there. I know that clearly isn't the case. However, the footsteps and activitiesv your unit occur right above my bedroom every night as I'm generally turning in and seem to amplif through the floor/my ceiling. I'm not asking you to change your routine or change any behavior however, if there's a way to may step lighter (assuming that's even a thing) or something/anything that might warrant less noise it w be greatly appreciated. You have every right to tell me to go take a long walk off a short pier over this and I wouldn't be offended by that at all. However, I thought I would politely make the ask in the event that somethin might be able to be done to reduce the noise. If I've overstepped my bounds I apologize. I'm honestly not trying to cramp your style I'm just attempting to catch a little more sleep and be less of a zombie in the morning. Thanks for your time and I hope this note finds you well, Take care Feel free to text anytime if you'd like to communicate at all) <p><a href="http://laughoutloud-club.tumblr.com/post/165855835670/how-canadians-complain-about-noise-found-this" class="tumblr_blog">laughoutloud-club</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>How Canadians complain about noise (found this taped on a door in my building)</p></blockquote>
