    I'm mad because my car sucks. I had to spend $63 on gas this week so I could go to a job that won't give me enough hours and only pays me minimum wage. This wouldn't be a huge deal except I have shit I need to save for. Hell, I'm lucky if i get 11mpg in city. It sucks that I didn't get any decision power in my first car. I am also mad because I ran over a small metal object with a hollow center (like it was designed to fuck tires) and had to walk home. Then having to pay to replace the tires. That is money I needed down the drain.

    I'm mad that I can't even begin to think about saving up for a new car to replace the shitty one mentioned above because I have to save for college since I have to pay for it out of pocket this semester.

    I'm mad that I work under one of the worst bosses on I've ever known. Truly fucks up every aspect of the work place and intentionally schedules me like an asshole. I really fucking hate closing a restaurant, not getting home until after 10 then having to wake up at 5:30am to go back. It blows ass.

    I'm mad that the education system in America isn't cheaper. It is getting to the point where you almost have to go into massive debt to afford furthering your education. I know I'm going to have to. My parents won't pay for my college and there is only so much scholarships will get me before I have to pay out of pocket and, eventually, start having to take out loans. Especially considering the fact that once school starts I can't work full time to save up the money. Try saving almost $4k in about 3 months working off of minimum wage at MAYBE 20 hours a week. Shit just isn't going to happen when you figure in insurance, gas, phone, etc, etc, etc.

    Shit sucks...shit just really sucks sometimes.

    ^ dude I totally Agree with the whole " getting yourself in massive debt just to afford college" i was just talking about that with my girlfriend today. Its like... You GOTTA go to school for at least 8 years to get a masters and pay at least 100k just to get a decent job in this economy/country...
    I could be wrong, and I'm sure theres plenty of people who are successful without a college education, but I wish college education was cheaper... I havent gone back to college in a year or so maybe 2. But It'll happen man. You'll find a better job. Things always have a way of falling into place.

    I'm not.

    I'm growing slightly annoyed at my inability to sleep tonight, but other than that, life's good.

    The bitch of it dude is that in my city, unemployment is above 25% (according to my Intro to Business professor) and as such I'm a full time student. And I'm only trying to get an A.S. in Business. So far I'm 10k in student loan debt and I'm gonna have to see about putting myself in another 10k of debt just to cover all expenses next semester too. Seriously, this is just too much. But it's either this, or go back to living off my mom while I try to find work. And that's all without adding on the fact that I'm pretty much guaranteed job discrimination because of my trans status. (yay for the teabaggers out here that run everything, which explains the ridiculously high unemployment)

    I tried like hell to get in on work-study, but because of the high unemployment, it's almost impossible to get funding for work-study because enrollment at this community college is at an all-time high and they actually have to turn a lot of people away every semester because classes fill up within hours of registration. This leads to a massively long waiting period to get approved for work study, provided you qualify to begin with.

    Money is just not something I can throw away on a car. Hell I'm already regretting buying a guitar, and that new V of mine will probably have to go back for a refund if I have to pay out the ass anymore for this stupid car.

    I feel fucked in the way of school. ALL my worries and stresses these days are related to paying for college. And to top it off, my dumb ass wants to go into a specialty that practically requires a graduate degree (masters is still not quite up to snuff with it either) to compete at a level that will actually get you somewhere. And even if I didn't want to be in physics it is getting to the point where a basic bachelors degree doesn't mean shit because EVERYONE has a fucking bachelors degree. What's more is that the people with bachelors tend to have them in common degrees so in order to be "better" and not deal with extremely competitive job fields you have to get obscure degrees for bullshit it seems. People wonder why we are falling behind academically and it is because no one can fucking afford to go after high school. Hell, China fucking PAYS for their citizens to come over here and go to college then brings them back to their country to utilize them. And sure, you can get full ride scholarships if you are the perfect student who is involved in every aspect of everything during high school. But chances are that isn't an option for people. Hell, it isn't actually hard to get regular scholarships but the vast majority only cover two years at best, most cover far less than that. Shit fucking sucks.

    I can't work full time while going to college because my degree requires me to be in a class room setting doing experiments and shit which in turn makes it impossible to save up for tuition and books before every semester. I have nothing to fall back on for help so eventually, whether it is this year or next, I am going to have to turn to student loans because none of the scholarships I am eligible for cover anything outside of my sophomore year. In order to gain a competitive advantage in my field I need a graduate degree and it is arguable that I need to go as far as a doctorate so that is a FUCK TON of money I will eventually owe someone. Yeah....life is just grand. College USED to make life better; higher wages, better standard of living, blah, blah, blah...too bad those new wages will be going towards paying off student loans for the next 10-15 years. Welcome to life, ain't it fucking peachy?

    A few reasons...

    1. I just bought a new lawnmower for 600 bucks three weeks ago. Today it broke down and I was pissed. I talked to a couple people on line, turns out Toro, the company who made it, had a recall and ordered all dealers to fix them BEFORE being sold to customers. Well guess my dealer forgot the memo. Toro, good work trying to help us as you are like the ESP/PRS of the mower world, but your dealers need their heads checked and a kick in the ass.

    2. I got too much on my plate right now. I have two jobs, my house to take care of (My dad and I constantly do, my mother only on special occasions helps...), and school work that I am WAY behind on, have terrible allergies right now and I am burned out and I need a vacation. I have missed out on so much with my friends and family and missed so many opportunities, just wish it would all stop so I can rest. and get my head back on straight.

    3. I have not played and practiced guitar well in about a year. It is unfortunate as I miss playing guitar a lot like I did back in high school. Gave me something to look forward to. Now I feel like all motivation to practice is gone. On a side note I am pissed I suck at guitar

    4. My dealer has two ESP Horizon FRs, an ESP M-II Maple, and a few Vigiers in stock that I played and fell in love with, and I cannot afford them...

    5. I am still single while assholes get any woman they desire. Yep!

    6. Hypocrisy of many people I know.

    7. That people think I am an idiot because I am religious and conservative

    8. My dogs are getting older (well not mad, more like depressing)

    9. My work truck's gas mileage and gas prices don;t go well together

    Anyway, nothing major (first world problems right? ) but you asked why I was mad :lol:

    My truck gets 16 mpg, I drive about 100 miles per day, gas costs 3.75 per gallon, my 2nd radio transmitter broke so I have no decent music to listen to while driving and I'm not buying another.

    ^ I hear ya on that Zebov. My cd deck/radio is disconnected from my car so I have nothing to listen to while I drive. I've finally broken down and started adding music to my phone and blasting music from my phone while I drive just so that I'll have something to listen to...

    I never have any trouble falling asleep 99% of the time. Saturday night was my guitarist's and drummer's joint birthday celebrations. Rather silly quantities of alcohol were consumed from about 4:30 onwards. I left the party 'round midnight (Thelonious Monk enters my beer-drinking activities, wait what?), returning home around 2:30ish. I awoke around noon on Sunday and scrambled out the door attempting to make a train to collect a bass I'd won on eBay on Thursday. Somehow I made my train, collected said bass on time, and returned to London with plenty of time left in the day.

    Then, around 6PM, the hangover arrived with all the fury of the ancients. I fell asleep on the couch until 9:30PM. Since waking, I have been quite unable to sleep. I've performed a full setup on the new bass, re-learned my slap technique (it's the first fretted bass I've owned for about eight years), taught myself about 50% of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' basslines by ear, and tried (and failed) to get my head 'round that Bohlen-Pierce tritave insanity.

    It is now 6:30AM on Monday. I am not in the least bit tired, but I've wasted most of the last 6 hours trying to sleep. Ugh. Still not mad though.
