Past due notice when their records and my bank agree that payment was made.

Past due notice on a specific loan when their records indicate zero dollars due.

Past due notice (again) when their records and my bank agree that payment was made ten days early.

And now my monthly payment has randomly gone up a hundred and twenty dollars for no apparent reason.


dude - "no apparent reason"? you've been past due like half-a-dozen times!

(yeah, i know - really not funny).

Wife's leg - still recovering
Medical bills - still unpaid
My dogs - now have fleas in spite of using Frontline Plus

According to the vet I saw today a fair number of people in my area are reporting that Frontline hasn't been effective this summer. So now I need to bug bomb my house(while my wife is still supposed to be staying at home, off of her leg), once a month for the next three months. Oh, and there are new expenses that came with this knowledge, including emergency vet fees.

How to stick at a job you hate for 10 years:

Be the kind of person that despite setting up your 2 weeks notice so that you have rent and bills for a full month after, a solid resume, references from people who are well placed in the restaraunt industry all over town, you still wake up after 4 or 5 hours of sleep with anxiety pains in your stomach and vomiting from nerves every day until you get a new job.

For me it's the exact opposite. I lay awake for 4 or 5 hours with the churning anxiety hoping beyond hope that a better way will show itself.

Finally pass out from exhaustion only for the alarm to go off 30 minutes later. Drag yourself out of bed and do it all again.

It sucks, but at least you're trying.

Sad You can have hugs if you want them.

In fact, everyone can have hugs. Shit sucks, y'all.

Keeping in theme, my current research job ends next Friday, and I just found out that they don't have anything for me to do for the next two days, and I still don't have anything lined up for afterwards.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Thanks guys. I've responded by taking a day and a half off to be gross and really sick.

In related news, fucking fever dreams, man. This one was "everything is covered in larva" and why. Whyyyyyy.

God fever dreams suck. I once had a semi-looping one that made me think I was losing my mind.

I hope you feel better soon, and wish you luck in your job hunt.
