Apparently I may have fractured a bone in my wrist that can get necrotic if it doesn’t heal right so now I am wearing a giant ugly brace and wondering how I’m going to keep my numbers up at work tomorrow… (we get a score based on how long we take to cashier and if you get a low score you get written up).

I spent the whole summer filling out billions of forms for financial aid because they thought my FAFSA was suspicious, and after finally getting everything submitted and resubmitted and checked and whatever, they tell me I have negative financial need, like that my parents can afford my entire education and then some, and don’t offer me any subsidized loans. fjkasjdfkajksdjfkjaksjdkfj

Like guys I don’t even make enough at work to pay for my rent. I only make enough to buy myself food and pay for electricity, and even then I have to be pretty conservative because it’s all gone by the next pay check. And my parents could barely afford my tuition from my AA degree, when I was taking like one or two classes a semester. My grandma had to help out. How on earth did they decide I can afford an entire year of upper-level classes? I do not have $20,000 lying around.

I decided to “save time” this morning by trying to put on my shoes while hopping across the room and ended up falling over and landed on my hand really hard and it’s difficult to use my thumb now soooo that will be the last time I will be trying to save time lol

Spread the word!

I was at the post office today and some old lady came up to me and started asking me about shipping something to Naples. I assume she thought I worked there but I didn’t want to embarrass her so I walked her over to the line so she could ask someone. It was just really weird. Don’t USPS employees wear blue? I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt, holding an iPhone and car keys.

I went to dinner with crazy coworker after work and had a giant glass of wine because it was happy hour and got tipsy and gushed about Daft Punk to her for a solid half hour and made her look at pictures and everything. In hindsight it seems a little embarrassing. Then we went shopping and she insisted on us getting matching dinosaur bracelets because I guess two times hanging out equals BFFs.

This guy who kidnapped, raped, and murdered one of my friends when I was 11 is trying to file an appeal. It’s so disgusting and sickening and ugh I don’t want to hear about him. I thought this was a done deal. The thought of him being on the streets makes me nauseated.

Imagine how much cooler I would look if I didn’t get weird sunburns from being outside for 5 minutes. ✨✨
