Ha! Money sucks. No money, big problems....More money, bigger problems. And so on.

It never ends. Sorry to hear about your crappy situation! Things will get better.

Hey, you know what they say - when life gives you lemons, just shut up and eat the damn lemons!

How am I doing? Well:

- I hurt my back at work and no one seems to be taking my injury seriously

- I have a bad stomach ulcer, which is making it hard for me to eat anything

- I have $30 to live on for the rest of the month

- I work three nights a week (12 hour shifts) and go to college full time, so three nights a week I just don't sleep

- my fiance's car is about to crap out, and we can't afford a new one

- I recently found out I can never have children

- the BP I'm trying to sell doesn't seem to interest anyone, and I badly need the money

- my fiance has pretty much told me "no more snakes" so I screamed him into the ground last night 'cause it's my GD money, so now we're not speaking

- I'm failing my math class

- I've been having wicked bad nightmares and am unable to sleep (just what I need, even *less* sleep)

- My kidney is badly infected, and I can't get to the doctor to have it treated (as if I can afford it, anyway)

- I'm contributing $8000 to our "get an apartment together" fund, and my fiance (who lives with mommy) has put in about $600, and he thinks this is fair

- My fiance's family didn't even congratulate us on our recent engagement (didn't thank me for shipping them Xmas gifts all over the gd world, either)

- I might have to quit school when we move in July, because I'm going to need to work two jobs to pay our bills. That means I get to stay a CNA for good. That's really good for my back

So, anyway. How's everyone else doing?

- Victoria :w

victoria, you seem to have alot of problems involving your fiance.

I can't claim to be having the best time at work, or be a picture of health or have greatest finances but I am thankful that I have a job (even if I hate it), i like corn snakes so new herps aren't bank breaking, my body isn't slowly disintigrating and i've got a partner that backs me on my hopes and dreams. Hope everyone else can find good things going on.

oh there is good things. i was just complaining . good news is that my friends band is taking off. they recently just sold out of their EP (after a single show!) that I created a label for and pressed so hopefully with incomng sales of the next pressing I will have cash to take care of what I need to and possibly expand the label.

I think what most people forget to think about a lot of times are all those poor people in third world countries, especially you know where, living day in and day out in fear.

I just found out I have this stupid, but very unconfortable medical condition. But you know what? Who cares. Why? Because there are people out there who were born without arms. Born without legs, born without a FACE even! There are far worse things in life.

When we have money problems, I think about the bums we pass on the Toronto streets each day. The poor men and women who either became homeless of their own fault, or other reasons. But they are eating garbage, and sleeping on the street....when I can hardly stand to take out the trash because its so cold, these people are sleeping in it.

When my boyfriend becomes a real pain in the ***, I stop, and think about all the wives getting the crap beaten out of them day in and day out. I sure am lucky that the only thing going wrong here is a forgotten chore or bill left unpaid by accident.

I just wanted to say to everyone, we all have crap. We all have things in life that suck. We all have times that we think are it. Its over. But, no matter HOW BAD things get, someone out there always has it far worse than you do. And they endure it.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! And I hope my post will make people feel better! It helps me to think of these things during bad times because I realize how easy I have it and how hard it could become, and is for someone else.
