Money and Finals

One phrase: Rapidly decreasing bank account and finals.

The stress! Yeah, it's nearly finals week. Am I prepared? No sir. Then again, I'm sure everything will be all right. It always is. But I'm prone to blow things out of proportion; it's my thing.

Just like my savings account. Shrinking!

I can't get unemployment in the state of Hawaii while going to school full time and I just found out the other day that I failed to finish the application for becoming a degree seeking student at Hawaii Pacific University. So, I have to miss the first summer term and take later classes which means I won't get my housing allowance from my GI Bill which then means I have to pay the rent with money from savings. That money was going to pay other bills as well as put food on the table. I guess it's time to get a real job.

I spent most of my life just trying to get by and I did a good job of it. Now, now I care and I want to make something of my life, become a production (degree having) member of society but it seems like someone is throwing up brick walls to block my path. Maybe this is how it all works. A test, perhaps. You don't deserve to be successful if you can't get over these hurdles. Who knows. 



  1. Bear with it. You are on the right path.

  2. Maybe it is the fates telling you to not forget what is important in life, take a break, and reassure family and loved ones that you are still alive and kicking!

  3. Loach - Thank you. I will.

    SHBK - I wish I could. 'Sleep when you die'!
