A Day I Claim Not to Care About
Here I'm doing the tacky thing and wishing myself a happy birthday because I'm feeling so blue! Normally I don't give a shit about this day but for some reason it's really bothering me today even though I've already received a phone call from my sister in Dallas and an email from a special friend who is having their internet connection cut off today of all days. They also sent a digital image which I post here
because it's the only present I'll be getting except for dinner from my girlfriend here in Vancouver. Don't worry about that though cuz I really don't want any presents except for money and it doesn't look like I'll be getting that either!!! Boo hoo!!!
The main reason I'm sad is that I'm dead broke. I had selfishly expected the cheque that I get every year from my step-mum and aunt that usually arrives long before my birthday and it hasn't arrived yet leaving me wondering where my next food is coming from since I don't get my next disability cheque for over a week. What a baby, eh?
Luckily, $$$ is on the way!!! I foresaw this crisis coming and started looking for a job that I thought I was capable of handling despite my "disabilities" by putting up ads and responding to them on craigslist. com July 27 and what do you know!?!?! I start tomorrow with a very pleasant-seeming family with 3 kids, one of whom will be in school most of the time. Of the other two, one will be napping almost all afternoon. It's only 4-6 hours, 4 days/wk so hopefully won't be too stressful. Now wish me luck. It's been three years since I was well enough to work!
Thanks for reading about my woes and being so supportive. Being such a hermit, I don't know what I would have done without dA all these months! You guys ROCK!!! Totally!
Please wait for my friends' icons to load and then look at their galleries too! They are worth it!
