Oh, rou.......the media is so horrible.

I'm sorry.
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.

Hang in there.

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.

@ OBB: I was tryna quote your reply but it won't let me.

Here goes:

I am happy I didn't read it before cause that had me laughing so hard!

I found what I'm looking for but good looking out, OBB.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

I knew it. Yep, crap was going on behind my back and I KNEW it. Stupid stupid stupid. Why do I end up looking like the bad guy? You are supposed to be protecting me. FCUK.

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*

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
