Seriously! Nothing new has been going on lately.
I went out with BFF to a bar to meet my biological fathers buddy last weekend. He was really nice. I met a guy there as well but don’t think I want to date a 60 year old that reminds me of Barry Manilow. He’s nice, just not for me.
My parents came back from their cruise this past Monday and are happy with the work I’ve already done in their place. My mom wants me to come finish for pay too. She even suggested that we move in until I’m on my feet again. She thinks it’ll be about a year of living together. They would benefit them as well having a cook and house cleaner living there. We would each have our own rooms which would be nice. The problem I see is if I want to do anything I will get grilled like I was back in high school.
This past week I drove my parents friend to her radiation treatment every day and made a whopping $100. I also paid a mechanic to come bypass the padlock system in my car. I haven’t had any problems starting it since! Whoop whoop!!!!!
I got approved for food stamps! That’s really good as we need it. I also got approved for TANF (Texas aid for needy families). The problem I have with that is they are going to give me $230 a month, take away any child support I get, make me look for jobs for 35 hours a week, and if I don’t get a job within a month, I have to do community service. That’s just plain stupid. For that much money, I could get my child support (it’s the same amount per month), I could babysit for 4 days a month and still make that much, I could help my parents elderly friends and make that much! If I did all of those things, I would be getting much more than our lovely government thinks I should get. So yes, I think it’s stupid.
I applied for 25 jobs last week and 56 this week. I have had no leads from any of the applications either. Whatever. I’m tired of trying. I refuse to go back to the high stress and drama in the corporate travel jobs I used to do. I want to use my degree and get into human resources. I can’t figure out why it’s so hard to change.
I took Little Man and his friend to Space City Comic Con yesterday. They had a great time and I got to meet Lori Petty!!! I love her as an actress! She’s great! I wish I could afford to go every day this weekend but it’s okay. I was happy with our free tickets yesterday! Free is good.
