I know I wrote a short thread but for about month I have been so swamped with the work I’ve had no time for all of this. Now, I am back. I look forward to this distraction. My personal life has become a lot more difficult. I would love any advice on where I have gone wrong.
I moved back from abroad about 4 months ago. I was penniless and had accumulated some debt. I return to the parents house and in that time I have repaired almost everything wrong with the house, have taken over the basic chores of the house, and pay a third of the bills. In addition, unlike many others in this country, I was able to tack down a full-time job with salary and benefits. In a matter of 1 month working there I have been able to earn enough to not only take a huge dent out of my debt but also begin to start looking for an apartment.
Well, and I know I shouldn’t be complaining about this kind of crap, but my parents have been nothing but critical since day one. And last night it finally exploded. I was working a wedding (as a favor to my mother’s friend) and had to work all the way until midnight. I did this for free mind you. Well, she apparently had called me on my phone while i was serving drinks on the dance floor (loud music and all) I didn’t hear it and she was forced to walk into the party so she could tell me she was there and she would drive me home. Well her friend (the person who asked for my help) sees her and invites her for a drink. She stays a few minutes, has a drink, while I finish cleaning up the party. We leave and she explodes on me for not coming out, for making her stay up late, and that I should have walked home (at 1 in the morning). I was so pissed I defended myself (loudly) and this morning she woke me up at 6am opening and slamming my bedroom door like a loon for a good 20 minutes. She has spent the day screaming at me and, in the course of going to church she lost her cell phone, that also became my fault. Now, am I going crazy or is she? I can’t figure it out.
Anyways, to conclude, instead of busting my ass around the house, cleaning fixing things, lifting and moving stuff, I’ve confined myself to the old bedroom and have begun searching for an apartment. Therefore, I now have time to talk on this site.
