I've taken a lot of shit from my family. God knows I love them, but liking them? Well, that's getting harder to do.
They've been on me for the last four years to go back to college, and when I finally do I get bitched at for actually going back to school. Funny right?
I didn't get enough money to last me until my next pell check comes, which btw, it came last week all 1,083.50 of it, so what does that mean? It means that my fourth class, which comes up in 15 weeks, I have to pay for. That's a little over 2,000 dollars. I earn, on average, 128 dollars a week. Yeah, a week. I have no time, or means of getting a second job. So, if I put back every single check without spending a dime for the next 15 weeks that'd be 1920 dollars. Is that going to happen? Fuck no.
Why? Because I have two computer payments, I am in serious need of internet at home, I have someone I need to pay back, I have things that I need to save for and I have to start helping the family out at home. Which, I think it's awfully convenient that they ask for money right after my pell arrives.
Which, a hundred of my pell is already gone. Poof! Because there were some things that I needed to take care of. By Weds another 300 will be gone, and then a 175 of it because I'm getting internet at home. That takes us down to 508 dollars, give or take, in the bank. Now, when I get back from Marci's wedding I'll have a 200 dollar check waiting here for me at work. So, I'll be back up to 708, give or take. Hopefully, however with basketball season coming up I'll be getting a TON of hours here at work. That'd be pretty fucking sweet, and I wouldn't HAVE to worry half as much.
Then by the end of the month I have to shell out 126 dollars to get two of the kittens at home fixed. By December it'll be another 63 dollars, if she's not preggers, to get the momma cat fixed. Then that's not including their booster shots that are 22 bucks a pop for five kitties. Which that brings us up to 220 dollars, because they have to go back twice.
Then if we don't get rid of the six one month old kittens I'm screwed.
I shouldn't even have to pay for them. Only one of the cats is mine. He was the first one to get fixed and he is my responsibility. However, I know that if I don't step up no one else is going to because they don't care. I'm almost to the point of hauling them to the animal shelter except for my George. Yes, he was named after George Weasley.
So yes, that's what's been going on with me. I'm strapped for cash and I have no idea what I'm going to do. It's like this never ending vicious cycle. Seriously.
