OK, I'm feeling a smidgen of rage right now, and I feel the need to let it out, so bear with me.

It might be a bit long, so I'll put it under a cut.

In other news, we will be moving. We were approved for the apartment, so all we need to do is pay the security deposit and the first month's rent and sign the lease and it'll be official. That's some additional stress. While I want to move and am happy about this, I dislike the actual process of moving. The packing, the physical transfer of our stuff from one place to another and the unpacking. Plus, we'll be doing this in January, and I'm not looking forward to moving in the winter. Hopefully things will go smoothly, but my Anxiety (once again) likes to rear it's ugly head now and then and give me stress. Nnnnnngggg...

We're holding off on making it public until we sign the lease and all of that.

That's it for now. Hopefully 2017 won't be a total custerfuck, but I'm not holding my breath. And sorry about the ranting...

Life apparently likes to take a dump on me at the most inconvenient times…

Yesterday my car decided to throw a belt while we were running errands. Luckily we were able to get back home ok, but it can’t be driven until the problem is fixed lest we risk damaging the engine. Naturally this happens before I get my student loan in order to be able to fix it.

A friend of ours said he’d take a look at it tomorrow, so hopefully we can get it fixed enough that it can be driven again so that I can go take my first exam on campus on the 17th. I know at some point I’ll have to get a newer car, but I can’t right now. Hopefully I can get a few more years out of it…

I filled out the form I need to file for my Intent to Graduate. I just have to turn it in to the Graduate Studies Office when I’m on campus next week. It’s pretty basic, really. I just needed to fill out my name as I want it on my diploma, the size of graduation robes I’d need and my major information.

I did hear from my advisor and she told me the schools I’ve been assigned to for my Practicum and they’re the ones I wanted. Mostly because I had already interviewed the librarians there for another class of mine, so I have a familiarity with them as well as the libraries themselves. I’m a little excited and yet nervous at the same time. I think I’ll be OK though…

I’m disgusted with my bank and banks in general right now. Specifically their “insufficient funds” charges. I understand if one is continuously using their checking account and it doesn’t have money in it, but if you’re like me and stopped using it altogether because I didn’t have money in it, and yet I STILL get charged $36.00… it’s a bit ridiculous.

Maybe I need to contact them and say, “Hey, I only get paid once a month. I shouldn’t be punished for not using my account BECAUSE I don’t have money in it, rather than using it with the full knowledge that I don’t have money in it, and still get charged.”

Naturally, I can’t just keep money in there to have in there, because I have to be the one to pay the rent, which is the vast majority of my monthly income (from an annuity I was awarded years ago), not to mention the monthly amount I pay to keep my health insurance. Everything else gets sucked into overcharges and it’s no wonder I never have any money for damn well anything! My fucking bank keeps sucking me dry!

I did apply for a GA position at the university’s lab school in their library, so hopefully that will happen so that I can 1. get my final semester of school paid for and 2. I can get a monthly salary to help with day to day expenses, since it seems I’m the major support around here. Well, I can’t say that since mom pays for utilities out of her meager Social Security payments. All I can say is, that I hope I can get a job where I can actually fully support myself rather than have the banks screw me over enabling me to not have any money whatsoever for any other expenses.

I do have my Praxis exams scheduled for next month. I’ve been making some study cards and hopefully I can do well on these stupid things so that I can get licensed and one more step towards employability.

Ugh. I mean, I like Hakuryuu and everything, but there are time when I have no earthly idea what the hell I'm doing. For instance, I'm wanting to download a .rar archive program on my laptop, but I have no idea how to do it. The booklet is no help whatsoever, and I can't understand what the online help is trying to tell me. So I'm relegated to using my desktop to download and open any .rar files I want.

Plus, my mood is somewhat affected by the Red Tide that's decided to visit with me. I swear, I have the worse timing in the world. It really pisses me off, too. Especially since today is one of my heavier days. *wants to throw things*

On top of that, I'm hungry, and am in no mood to fix anything, so I have no idea what to eat. Times like these, it sucks to be female.

Now I have to go and figure out what the hell is the matter with my Internet connection.

I decided to wait and post for a bit until my mood brightened some. It's not great, but it's better.

I had a bit of a nuclear fallout with my mother this morning. I had gone to bed later than I had planned and so when I woke up this morning, I wasn't quite with it. Mom was trying to talk to me some this morning on the car trip to her work, and I wasn't overly responsive. Not because I was trying to blow her off, it's just I wasn't all together with it yet. Well, she seemed to think I was deliberately ignoring her, and she got all moody. It got to the point that when we pulled up to the entrance so I could let her out, she started acting all pissy and slammed to doors when she got out. Needless to say, it soured my mood. Then, when I got back home there was a message on the answering machine. It was mom. She had started to apologize but then it turned into an angst fest, saying how she feels under appreciated. She goes on to say how she only got a card for her birthday and how I want a big ol' party for mine. About how she "doesn't rate much" and all this other stuff. Of course, I was feeling a little pissed when I got home and then I started to feel like complete crap. She said some other stuff too, but I really don't feel like getting into that at the moment. She then called again to apologize for the message and to completely disregard what she had said. I tried to explain that the reason I hadn't gotten a gift for her yet was because funds were tight this month and I'd have to wait a bit before I got her anything. I still planned on getting her something. And the only reason I sort of want a bit of a party is because it's gonna be my 30th birthday and it's kinda special. If it were anything else, I'd care less. I'll just tell her I don't need to have anything done for me, not if it's gonna cause any sort of drama. I just don't want to deal with all of that.

Aside from that, the cookout we had yesterday was very nice. Some friends of ours had their daughter visiting from Canada, so that was nice. I hadn't seen her in awhile. We then played a game. It's called "ImagineIff" and it's kinda like a guessing game. You have to try and pick the most appropriate choice from a list of things under a certain topic for whomever you land on. If you pick whatever the actual person picks for themselves, you move up a space. It's kinda hard to explain, but pretty fun.

I'm trying to try listening to the radio through Windows Media Player. I picked their Top 40 category, but there seems to be a lot of Hip-Hop and I'm not one who enjoys that genre. Once in awhile I get lucky though.

Trivia of the day: Nutella is a hazelnut spread made with skim milk and cocoa. It is virtually unknown in America, but European children have happily smeared it on breakfast croissants for decades.

I'm seriously pissed. It takes a lot to really piss me off, but I'm in a rage. Yesterday we recieved a letter from our f***ing bastard of a landlord saying, that since he's moving out of state, he wants to sell all of his property in Florida. So we have two choices, either buy this house from him or move out... by Oct. 1. Neither of which we can afford to do. I am livid. I'm sick and tired of being shit on all the time. I've had it. I wish we'd catch a break for once in our lives. I mean, sure our house isn't in the greatest of shapes. I mean, there's a big hole in my bathroom wall, and our air conditioner still leaks like crazy, but we at least had a roof over our heads. Now we might not even have that anymore. Hopefully while I'm at work, I won't have a chance to dwell on how crappy things have turned out. And I'm determined not to let this affect my profesionalism.

There are times when life really, truly sucks...
