This is an experiment, I guess. It's also an outlet for the greys, should he need it. Whatever you wanna whine about - job, parents, spouse, kids, siblings, teachers, school, asshole on the street, whatever - do it here. This is a place for rants. Punctuation optional. I'll go first. So yesterday it came out that I was planning on spending a significant amount of money at a concert tomorrow - I hadn't been hiding this, btw. I'd been working for months to earn said money. My mom not only flips out because I want to spend a large amount of cash in a short time, which for some reason is a problem for her, but now she's talking about how I should get a part-time job. During the school year, mind you. I said to her, "have you seen my course load for next year? I'm taking all honors and 2 APs and like 8 fucking courses. Where is there time for a job?" She then tells me that she expects me to give up whatever remaining free time I would have - already almost none - to work a part time job. What I didn't say was that I don't call free time "free time," I call it "will-to-live." I've told her repeatedly that I have no problem getting a job over the summer or whatever, but during the school year there really isn't time. /rant Btw, am I being a spoiled asshole about this?
