Fall update

Posted November 5th, 2017 at 3:46 PM by Otter Mii-kun

As everybody can tell, so much has been going on in the world lately. Much of it has been driving me crazy, of course.

I haven’t thought about much to write about as far as blogging goes the past few months. Sometimes, I get ideas, and they escape me shortly afterwards.

Over the past several years, my relationship with my mother as a son has become increasingly strained. There isn’t a day that goes by anymore that doesn’t have an argument of some sort. Much of these arguments are about things going on in the world that are on the news. Another part of the problem is all the excessive robocalls that we’ve been getting for the past several years. I wish scam calls (especially tech support, “lower your interest rate” and Medicare back/knee brace scammers) weren’t exempt from the Do Not Call law. (If my mom or I needed a back or knee brace, our doctor or a physical therapist would be writing a prescription for it.) What’s worse is that many will call several times in a day, and if you answer them, they won’t take no for an answer, forcing me to hang up angrily. Everybody seems to think my mom and I are moneybags, even though we’re both dirt poor.

I really want to move out on my own, but then I wouldn’t have a vehicle to get to work, since the one I drive to work is my mom’s, and she needs to be able to get around as well. Plus I do things for her in exchange for being allowed to take the vehicle around to work and to visit my extended family. I’ve been thinking off and on about begging my dad to take me in, but it wouldn’t do any good since he’s living with two of his sisters, and my cousin is living with his girlfriend and raising a baby in an attached upstairs apartment. To add insult to injury, I’ve been feeling that my dad is more of a father to my cousin than to me lately, since he remodeled the bathroom in the aforementioned apartment. One other point to mention is that my dad and the rest of his side of my family are hoarders. Although my mom keeps after me to make sure I’m not a hoarder like them, and I have gotten rid of a lot of my things over the past year or so, I feel like I need to purge the majority of my belongings that I have left, but I can’t seem to muster up the will to do so as of lately.

I’ve been praying that my living situation would change as in moving out on my own, but maybe God wants me to stay with my mom. (At times, though, I’ve thought that I’m going to have to take care of my mom full-time, much like she had to take care of her mother.)

Over the Labor Day weekend, I officially became an actual staff member at my workplace and am no longer a “trainee” supervised by Mental Health. Though my pay and duties are still the same as they were before, people have said that this is an important step up for me. At times, though, I wish I could have another job, but there’s hardly anything that I’m interested in that I’m actually qualified for, and I refuse to go deep into debt just for a bachelor’s degree like everybody else my age. (That would be considered as being a “good American” by Obama and the Democrats. Their insistence on globalizing every aspect of our lives and regulating every single thing to death except for abortion is the reason why I nearly went straight-ticket GOP in last year’s election.)

Back to my work situation, as much as I would like to someday get another job, the staff that I work with say they need me there since I’ve been so helpful to them over the years. Guess that’s a vote of confidence in how I’ve been performing my job, eh?

I really got to stop venting.
