I wish I was motivated to deal with bullshit that has to be dealt with soon but to be honest, I’d rather be stuffed in a retirement home all day aiding decrepit looking old people… and I HATE old people and being anywhere near them. Today’s not turning out all that well. Firstly, I had to wait over an hour today to talk to a financial aid advisor to figure out how I’m going to pay for school since my mom bailed on being my cosigner. I seriously didn’t see anyone in the financial aid department for a good 45 mins. except for the receptionist who wrote down my name. Why the shit was I waiting for that long?! Anyways, after I got a chance to talk to someone about my dilemma, I found out that I might not even be eligible to take out a loan by myself because my credit isn’t the best in the world. Can you blame me though? Whose credit is up to par these days? I’ve had nothing but consistent problems with lenders in the past being difficult and bugging with not getting information right, taking longer then usual for turnaround, and giving me the general run around to the point where I would really love put this whole thing aside and not go through any of that again. If I can’t get approved for a god damn loan on my own, then I’m fucked because no one else is down to be my cosigner. I wish that the simple fact of me being motivated to further my education to get a degree and make something of myself would be a sufficient enough prerequisite to issue students loans. College students don’t make shit, and if they do, it’s gone like that. “THEY” need to realize this and cut us college students some slack.
Secondly, the manager at the place I’m staying at now was a total assdick and had my mail for the last couple weeks sent back to where ever it came from since I’m not on the lease and am only ‘staying’ there temporarily.
So I had to call the unemployment office to check if my paychecks where mailed to my new address, which of course opened up a whole new can of fuck. After going through 15 minutes of automated nonsense, I get told that I’m going to be put on “hold” immediately followed by, “…due to the current customer call volume, we are unable to take your call right now, please try again later.”
Determined to figure out information about my paychecks that where suppose to be sent to me and be in my possession, I tried again and luckily got through to a very nice and pleasant sounding lady telling me that because of my address change, and having the 3-4 checks sent out only to be sent back, I have to wait ten days to get re-issue forms to fill out to even try and get the same paychecks that where sent out to my new address in the first place. Another 10 days for the turn around, then another 10 days for the checks to reach me. Thank you manager who’s name I don’t know, or care to know now you 60 year old ginger ass fuck! I hate dealing with unemployment issues. This isn’t the first time I’ve had issues with them and I can’t help but feel like I will be screwing myself in the long run if I don’t deal. What I mean of course is getting a job. Don’t get me wrong, I actually would love to have a job to occupy my free time with but the fact of my making more money receiving unemployment than working a 20-30 hour work week somewhere is something that I don’t really want to give up just yet. It’s something that I’m willing to fight for I guess. Taking advantage? Cheating the system? Call it what you want but the reality of it is that I couldn’t even put enough hours into working a job that I would like to in order to make equal or greater the amount I make off of unemployment in the first place since I’m taking a full load at school….and I don’t want to prolong my estimated grad date either by reducing said load.
Lastly, my roommate has a friend from his hometown visiting for the next week and a half and it’s slowly getting annoying. Mainly because three dudes crammed into a dinky studio apartment just doesn’t work well. Hell, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that two dudes barely work in a dinky studio, but oh well. What can I do right? I have a roof over my head, a place to shower everyday and somewhere to lay my head down at night, so I guess its not all that bad. I just miss my old place where I had JUST got used to being on my own and having a place all to myself with SPACE to stretch my legs. I will have that luxury again soon, but for the time being I will make do. I often think about how awesome it would be to have things like they were when I was a toddler. No care in the world and no responsibilities to tend to on the daily. I guess I’m trying to find an out from meeting the growing up fairy and its not really working out to well. It’s inevitable and I wish things would mellow out for a tad. Seven days from now, I will be in Hawaii, which I’m fucking pumped for. I haven’t been there since I was a junior in high school and I can say this time around will be ten time better, mainly because I’m spending a week there and plan to do stuff instead of four days of not really doing much of anything like last time. Its going to be an extremely interesting week because my family will all be in the same place all at the same time, which is rare on top of watching my sister getting married. It’s so weird to me that she’s at this point in her life already at such a young age. Theres no way I would be ready to marry someone at 19. No one in my family has met her husband (I say husband because they eloped a year ago and are just now having a legit ceremony) and I’m not sure how it’s going to go over because my impression thus far of him = ‘douche bag’ but it’s whatever. As long as she’s happy, then I’m happy. I’m just stoked on seeing her after almost a year and hitting up the beach. I never thought I’d say it, but I actually miss the beach…or any beach in general, so that’s going to be fun for sure. I’m even pumped on the plane ride there and back because now I have a super duper laptop decked out with SNES, N64, GBA, & Playstation emulator with 2342736482736423476 games to pass the time. Dear week of August 30th, hurry the shit up so I can get out of Seattle for a minute. Please and thank you!
Ps. If you got through reading all of that nonsense, brownie points. *High five*
Tumblr isn’t anything new and I know that I’m extremely late to the party, but to be honest, facebook is getting old/boring, myspace is dead and twitter is just ehh. So Mr. tumblr…I say, “Why not?” Besides, some of my friends have showed me some really rad pages that you can follow on here, so I think this whole tumblr thing will be kind of cool and something new to waste my life away on. Going to shows are super fun and that’s what i’ll be doing tonight. I can say that I’m stoked on it. I realize this first post is boring but oh well, I’ve conformed and it’s awesome sauce.
