Listening to: 3 Small Words - Josie And The Pussycats
So it's a new year. Yay. I hope 2014 is better than 2013. Hell, pretty much anything that could happen would be better than the hell this year brought. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad. I got published. I have a book out and two short stories. And I made a lot of new friends. These are good things. But some bad things have happened also. I lost a friend to a car accident, I've been stabbed in the back, and I've been forced to move multiple times in the span of 11 months. I'm tired of moving and I'm tired of feeling like I can't trust anybody.
So Nick and I are back in NJ. We plan to stay. Florida was nice and all but we were really homesick. I couldn't explain the depression I was feeling - now I know what it was. Homesickness. I actually feel great being back. And I never want to feel that way again.
Only issue is, his father is being a major douchebag. He expects us to pay 350 a month for ONE room and he piled on a load of conditions. Like what the fuck? Nick is his son. He should want to help us out. We're both struggling (Nick with school, me with my career and school) you'd think the least he could do is offer us a place to stay for a few months. It's not about the money. We can pay the money. But the conditions? Oh, not to mention a time limit. What the fuck. I'm sorry if I come from a weird planet where parents are actually supportive and useful. My mistaken. Let me also not mention that his father lived with his own parents until he was 28...yet looks down on Nick and I because we're not completely self-sufficient at the age of 21 and 22. Like fucking really?
The economy is terrible. Jobs are hard as hell to find. And you're his father - my father in law. The least you could do, the VERY least is give us a roof over our head for a few months. Without being a complete asshole.
I can't wait until my career really picks up. Everything will be much easier then. Until that happens, we have stress upon stress upon stress. The good news is that we love each other. That's something, right? It's definitely enough for us.
