If I can’t trust the mailman to mail my letter who can I trust

On my way to the corner store to grab some cigarettes I stopped to check my mail and I got a magazine (people, thank you reward survey) and a letter from disability which I thought was their decision. So I opened the letter and was it their decision? oh no.

The letter stated that they hadn’t yet received a form they wanted me to fill out that they sent to me on July 11th. A form that I filled out and handed directly to the mailman to mail for me. A form that apparently didn’t get mailed, WTF.

Would it have been better for me to walk to the mailbox and mail it? apparently, I tried to call the office but it’s Friday and they were already closed. I left a message but the letter said they need the form by July 31st which is Monday. A form that I no longer have. Guess who will be getting up early Monday morning and calling to see if they can send me a replacement form. One that I will be dropping in the mailbox since the mailman can no longer be trusted.

I read for fun…get over it

I get asked by people that don’t know me what I like to do for fun? When I answer I like to read, I always get the same reply. I either get “No I meant like to have a good time” or I get a stare and a shake of their head. I don’t know what ya’ll want me to say, that is what I do for fun.

In my twenties I smoked weed damn near every day, I drank a lot. I had several friends both male and female that I hung out with. Just like I remember the first time I ever smoked; it was in ECC North campus parking lot with a friend of mine, I was eighteen. I remember the day I quit; June nineteenth two-thousand nine. 

I don’t knock anyone who smokes, I have several friends and even family members who smoke. More power to you, however that’s not me anymore. To be honest I don’t even drink like that, ever since I blacked out for six hours back in  09…I rarely drink.

My point is some people look at me and think…I’m weird because I don’t party.

I think that’s why I connected with my SO so fast when I met him almost five years ago. When He asked what I liked to do for fun and I gave him my answer. I didn’t get that weird look, instead he told me he also enjoyed reading. When I went to the library on a regular basis, I would get books for him and myself. We would sit together and read.

Stop looking at people who don’t like the same things you do, as being weird or abnormal.  I read for fun, I go to libraries for fun. You like to go to clubs and parties? okay….don’t drink and drive. have fun. I’ll be reading.

More drama

So N has gotten so many complaints to the office about her, (someone told me they were number eighteen) that management is evicting her. I personally didn’t complain but N thinks I did, Yesterday a friend of mine got a note under her door and went and told management about it. Then today she got another note naming a mutual friend of ours and me, I don’t like drama at all and I am being pulled into this which frankly I am not one of the people who complained about her.

N is the type of person who will smoke a blunt with you and then go in the bathroom and call the cops. Then when your house is getting raided, act all innocent like she has no clue what is going on. In other words she’s fake.  She loves to pin people against each other and when confronted, she cries and runs away.

If I have a problem with you, You’ll know about it. I’ll be the one to tell you.

I have been looking for an apartment and I am thinking of getting one with a friend of mine, I already put my notice in and have just been pushing it back until I find a new apartment.

Finally….

Last night I was fed up with media not letting me upload the header so  I just went in and edited the php. I didn’t want to do that because I am not used to using PHP, when I had a website in my late teens/early twenties…nobody was using wordpress back then. I figured it out though.

A friend of mine told me yesterday that I should be able to get a free bus pass every month since I am on disability. When I spoke to my case manager this afternoon it was something I mentioned when I asked her about the housing. She recommend that I let the office in my apartment building, know to push back my sixty day notice to September. She also said that I probably wouldn’t get a bus pass for July which is fine, I can buy one. She said she would try to get me one for August though so I don’t have to pay to get to my doctors appointments and such.

S told me awhile ago that I should try and get cabs to my appointments as I probably could with my breathing problems & arthritis. I never wanted to though, for one I don’t mind taking the metro…I never have. The other reason is waiting for a cab…is a pain in the ass, I’ve waited with S for plenty. I’d get home much faster if I just took the bus.

I stayed off of social media last night and all day, so no one could spoil the finale of PPL for me…I just finished watching it.

Wifi is acting normal for now

I was offline all weekend but not because I wanted to be, the buildings wifi kept dropping me so I spent my weekend catching up on PPL and I am caught up to current although I haven’t watched yesterdays episode yet…I am thinking I may wait until I have the final episode and then watch it and be done with it….as I did for Vampire diaries when that ended.

I was pleasantly surprised when i checked my stats and found my blog was rather popular yesterday, 47 hits and none of them were me. The contest is still open, refer to this post until June 24th so you can still get your entries in. I will buy the game after the contest closes on the 24th at eight pm EST and contact the winner that night or on the 25th, which I will also make a blog post announcing who won.

I also added a new site to apps & surveys that pay page, so check it out if you like magazines. SO and I have talked, we are both sick of the wifi dropping, he is especially when he is at my house so he is going to give me half of the fee for getting a internet connection in my name…planning that for when I get paid next week since they need a card on file. It makes sense as I make more money when I have a constant wifi signal then when I don’t.

This building is a hot mess

I have never lived in an apartment building that gave out so many notices, its like living in a……I don’t even know how to describe it

This one states no topless men or women in the common ares, ahh….what sluts are walking around topless???????  It wouldn’t state it if it hasn’t happened, why does this even need to be stated. There aren’t that many single women in the building, most of the women who live here live with their men.

It says shirts & shoes are required in common areas, but doesn’t say anything about pants. Don’t be giving those topless women any ideas, Monday we will probably get a notice that says pants are required also.

I guess sometimes its too hot for clothes

and this is why I stay in my apartment most of the time, SO called me last night from the patio to make sandwiches for him and his friend…..That was the first time I went outside since Monday.

Neighbors

I have been having a lot of problems with google chrome today, it worked fine last night and then all day today it’s been giving me problems so I tried firefox. Firefox is blocking google & Gmail. It lets me see my blog but is blocking wordpress. I downloaded Opera, so far so good.

SO told me he ran into one of our neighbors the other night, she had the nerve to ask him if we could be quiet at night. This is the women who plays her music and TV so loud that I can’t watch tv or listen to music without head phones. She also screams at her EX on the phone in the middle of the night and watches TV really loud at four am.

I wanted to report her to the office a couple of times but they won’t do anything, She has a lot of nerve and it pissed me off so I started talking shit and I know she heard me and I was waiting for her to knock on our door.

Everyone in this building knows that I don’t start problems, I’ve been here two years and haven’t had any problems with anyone or the office. It’s pissing me off that this bitch (who is the second loudest on this floor) has the nerve to ask us to be quiet like I am the one disturbing her sleep.

I’m going to start looking for a bigger apartment, I am so sick of this shit.

 

I hate summer colds

I have been really sick with what I think is a cold mixed with some sort of stomach bug, what ever it is has me completely worn out and I hate it. I have been feeling like this since June 1st so I am thinking I got it from someone on the bus. Wifi is working for a change on a weekend *surprise surprise* so I am trying to update.

I have also been reading a lot and catching up on a couple of shows (Izombie & PLL), I am caught up to season three on Izombie and am taking a break and now watching PLL from the beginning.

SO has court for this dumb ass jay walking charge tomorrow, he got it in April for crossing the street on his way to work. If you follow me on twitter, I ranted about him being stopped for WWB (I trust you know what that means without me having to spell it out, its the same as DWB). Both he and I are surprised that he has to go to court for this BS, The cop car stopped before he crossed the street. Hopefully the judge will just dismiss the charge because its dumb.

I have my own issues with police in this city, but that is another story for another time. He’ll probably have to sit in court all day, I am sure there are more pressing issues the judge will need to deal with first.

Good Morning

I am just getting over a cold combined with a stomach bug which I unfortunately dealt with on my birthday which left me in bed most of the day and the whole weekend. Besides that my birthday was okay, I spoke to S and both my mom & brother texted me.

There has been a bit of drama, N and I are not friends anymore and S now knows that she has been bad mouthing her and her husband to others besides myself and D. S confronted her the day after my birthday and when I signed on to FB to reply to birthday comments, I noticed that N deleted me. I could honestly care less, the women is a middle school child stuck in a grown woman’s body.

I took the metro out to the reservation yesterday and there was some drunk guy on the bus, He was actually drinking on the bus the way there and annoying the hell out of me. S’s husband was on the bus with me and ended up telling drunk man to leave me alone as I was trying to read to pass the time and he wouldn’t shut up. Then on the way back drunk man pissed the bus driver off and she tried to kick him off the bus when we made it back to the city. He refused and I didn’t want to miss my bus home, so I (as well as a group of others) got off the bus and walked to get our connecting buses. I’m sure he’s sitting in county right now, it’s not a smart move to piss a bus driver off.

I met with my new case manager the other day and she is supposed to stop by today so I can sign some paperwork for a place that does income based apartments. When I told her how much I am paying for this room plus bathroom they call a apartment her jaw hit the floor. The apartment place’s waiting list’s are really long 3 to 5 years long which is why I haven’t considered them before but she told me that they put applicants that come through their agency at the top of the list I told her I would fill the paperwork out.

When I paid my rent yesterday I explained to the office manager that I was actively looking for a new place and was told that I needed to give 60 days notice. She told me to put my notice in and if I don’t find something by the end of July she will push the notice back, so I put it in. I do not want to be here another winter, that’s when the rodents find refuge inside the building and I am not dealing with that. My case manager also said she is going to get me some rat poison and was appalled when I told her the owner knows about the problem and just doesn’t care.

Besides going to the grocery store, I don’t have any plans outside the house. My plans are to get through my main email and to do a possible product review via the blog today. Maybe write a chapter or two to one of the novels I have going.

I feel like…..

I’ve spent the majority of my time yesterday & this morning updating the contents of my blog, I added to some pages in the Jolene section, as well as added a new chapter to The Paranormal Effect in the writing section. Of course I have been joining fanlistings and discovering new websites (I wouldn’t be me, if I didn’t).

I really don’t feel good today though, I’ve had a terrible migraine since this morning and as a sufferer of chronic migraines…nothing really makes them go away. I decided to lay down about noon and try to go to sleep, D was watching a show and was making a ton of noise so I didn’t really get a lot of sleep. The trouble of living in a studio apartment.

Got a check in the mail from a survey about Mark TEN e cigarettes I did awhile go, so very happy after I got my mail this afternoon. Plans for the rest of the day are, waiting for D to get back so I can try and make it to the check cashing place before they close. I wanted to try to write today, as I currently have four novel’s (The Paranormal Effect, Broken, Unhappily ever after & Mystery Man).

Hoping this queasy feeling goes away. If I didn’t know better, I’d say I’m pregnant.
