I'm back. Where have I been?
To the surprise of no one (but the disappointment of me), Ex Boyfriend did not, in fact, pay me back in full like he promise. Nor did he send me a debit card like he then suggested.
He sent cash. Once. Then, three months later, a PayPal payment.
I know. I know. I should cut my losses, yes? But please- we're talking several grand here. It's going to take much sacrifice and the rest of this year to pay off in full the credits cards he ran up in my name. Is it really so wrong to squeeze him for some cash while I fix that problem? I thought not.
"But wait!" you say. "You work part time at a crappy dry cleaner! How can you afford to pay off two credit cards in one year?" WELL! HA!
I got fired from the dry cleaner. That was lame. REALLY REALLY lame. Yet, one month later (February- I got axed right after Christmas. Lamexlame), after continuous job hunting, I landed a super sweet gig at an oil&gas company as the file clerk/data entry/office bitch.
May I just say, yay? Full time, benefits, about $24K a year, and my own OFFICE! With walls! And a desk!
"Well, ok, that's great," you say, "but is that all you do now? Work?"
Of course not! I'm still continuing with my paralegal classes- who knows where I'll end up? Always good to have a wide range of legit skills.
I also (somehow, strangely) developed a social life. I know, me too! But more and more, people were like "we should totally hang out!" and I was like "sure <3" and then MORE hanging out happened (and drinking. yum), and then I was TRAVELING and now I'm all like "wait, let me see if I'm free *teehee*".
It's bewildering. I'm clinging to it like a cat to a person above a tub of water. ME GUSTA.
"Well gee, that's fantastic!" you say. I must agree, truly. In addition to all that awesome, I'm (finally...) losing my breakup weight! God bless WeightWatchers. It works. I've lost almost 10lbs.
Oh damn. Here comes the snark.
"Well, that's all good and lovely," you begin snippily, " but it's been over a year since you got your ass dumped... and yo're still single? Mmm, so sad..."
Whatever bitch. THAT is for another post ^.~
