Oh, Life, you suck bitch!

25 Aug

I know, I know. I am always complaining. I always come here either when something goes awfully wrong in my life or when I’m extremely excited and/or happy about something. But whatever.  I write for me.  It might be selfish, but this is my own personal way of complaining to the Universe for all the shit it throws at me.  I normally use Twitter for venting because  I know no one who follows me actually pays attention to the nonsense I write so I might as well tweet that I’m gay or that I’m pregnant and no one will notice. But sometimes, 140 characters is just not enough.

So instead of writing a recap of my awesome summer vacation (well, partly awesome because some pretty shitty stuff went on during it too) I am writing a list (how predictable!) of  all the unfortunate things that have befallen me lately:

* I was “swimming”  in the ocean at Clearwater Beach –  the most amazing beach I’d ever been to0- and a stupid wave knocked me over, an unexpected current dragged me in and almost made me drown.

* While I was underwater, all that salt water and sand got in my ear and gave me one of the worst ear infections I’ve ever had. Seriously, the pain was so bad I COULDN’T SLEEP. And my sleep is sacred! I sacrifice it for nothing or no one!

*I spent a little too much money while in Colombia more than I’d expected. And to say I’m broke now is an understatement.  And of course, I had to get sick and get a bunch of medicine as soon as I arrived to NC.

*My phone is broken and I can’t afford a new one right now.

*I lost my ATM card

*I lost my school ID card. And my Colombian ID. And some very important documents from work.

*A bank in Colombia which I obviously will not mention here is shamelessly stealing from me and they even dared to give me a bad credit report. The worst part is I can’t defend myself because I am  not there right now.

*I got sick on the first day of school.

*I got an email from my bank here today saying that I had an overdraft fee.

*I owe most of my paycheck already. And I won’t get paid until next Tuesday.

* My hair is frizzy, I have a rash on my arms and my nails are brittle.

*There’s nothing I can do to solve these problems right now so all I can do is breathe deeply and try to forget about it.

There. I feel a little better. That’s it for today. I need to go to sleep now so I can wake up early for school tomorrow. On second thought, maybe tomorrow or the day after that, I will write that recap of my summer vacation. But I warn you, there will be lists and lots of comparisons between Colombia and the US. Oh, and there will be complaining too.
