Ok seriously, I cannot handle this.

I have made it abundantly clear to my father that in order to graduate, I need to take summer classes this year. We have discussed it a million times. We agreed. (He helps me pay for school... or says he will... but gives me a very hard time about it)

Registration for summer comes around.

I text him saying, ok, how many credits can I take?

His reply: 0

Me: Wait, we discussed that I need them to graduate. I don't have a choice!

Him: 0
Then... :-)
Then... ttyl!

Are you kidding me? Are you freaking kidding me?

So technically fine, I don't need him to pay for my classes (nevermind that I agreed to live at home in exchange for help with my tuition and travel costs). But that would come at the cost of not being able to move out next year, which I really wanted to do, because, as might be clear from this post and others I have made in the past, my dad's kind of a jerk to me!

Ugh!

I now have a strictly "Go to Hell" policy regarding news media.
-----------------
eva, I'm sorry about your Dad. I wish I had something helpful to say. Unreliable parents suck.
-------------------
And speaking of money, I just threw a minor tizz over yet another overlooked invoice for one of my big clients. I worked hard not to lose my cool, which was a challenge. I try to "let cooler heads prevail" but when it comes to not being paid (AGAIN!) I tend to lose it.

I don't do this work for the money, but I certainly still need it.

Thanks ninja. I'm pretty used to it. I mean I wasn't expecting it, but I should've, and I certainly can't say that I'm surprised. I just needed to vent about it somewhere. Anyway, I finish my degree in 14 months, so I'll be ok.

Just bumped into a close friend of my boss's only to have an hour long conversation with him about his brother's suicide which he witnessed. Of course it brought back memories of all the crap I went through over the summer. I just hope he felt a little better after talking with me. But whoa, that might have been a conversation he should've had with a professional, instead of little ol' me.

I don't feel like I ever got used to it with my family.

Hang in there.

My client just paid a teeny tiny invoice due in two weeks and has yet to pay the two larger invoices that were due 3/4. I called my contact there and he seemed clueless about it. I've asked him to check with accounting on it.

I really hope they aren't low on money and hoping this will keep me at bay for a while. I have bills too!

I am investigating what my options are for implementing a late fee system. I used to worry clients wouldn't want to work with me anymore if I was a hard-ass about late payments, but seriously, who wants a late-paying client anyway? They are a huge pain in the butt. All the time spent chasing down my money could be better spent. At least with a fee system I get some compensation for my efforts and if it makes the slow payers avoid using me, that'll free me up for the clients who DO pay on time.

I fell up the stairs last night, and now I have a HUGE bump and bruise on my shin/knee. This thing hurts so bad!

Maybe this can get me out of cleaning our wood floors on Wednesday. *laughs and rubs hands together maniacally*

Thanks. I was just checking seeing as NC has been acting kooky lately.

I always copy (highlight and hit Ctrl C...ignore if you know this) just in this happens. It's save long post before. I hate nothing more than putting thought and effort into a long post and it be *poof*.
