Several things are frustrating me right now. I am frustrated with my school's inability to keep to the text. I understand the need to have us look elsewhere for some things but when I am told I need to buy books I expect to use them. I also don't expect to have to spend my time in front of the computer to read certain texts because we are told not to read the portions that are in the books we were told to buy, but the ones online instead. I know this is small but when most of my study time is spent at work and my printer is a POS that won't print if just one cartridge of ink is empty, even if it's not the color I need. That being said when all six inks are empty I can't just replace the black, I need to replace all six, I just bought another printer since it was only $40 more than the ink (also, it is a scanner and copier, which I needed) and only requires four different cartridges to print. I didn't even have the extra money to really put out on it until today anyway so there was no way I could have printed this out any sooner than tonight.

I am frustrated at people who have the degree I want not having their shit together which I need them to do in order for me to get my shit together and get said degree. I am tired of coming to a class and being told that there are three more additions to my book list but the teacher (I am not calling these people professors at this point, fuck that) just didn't feel like putting them on the book store list. Oh, and two of these books I need now.

I am frustrated with Erik asking me to do stuff last minute when he knows I have class starting at 8a and the things he needs me to do are for my son and his comfort so there is no way I can say no even though I am already behind in the second week due to previously mentioned frustrations. So, I make sure that I can leave work early and even loose out on money to do so (full bar almost when I left which means I get none of the tips from those people since I left) and head straight to Best Buy where he's supposed to meet me with the kid but instead tells me that I'm being too much hassle (yes, I told him I was pissed he was even asking me on a school night when this was something he should have lined up in advance and not last minute) and is taking the kid with him instead.

Two hours after this I get repetitive phone calls 'cause he wants to make sure I'm not at a bar (he thinks I am always at a bar- which I guess I am SINCE I FUCKING WORK BEHIND A BAR) and I break down crying because this is the last thing I need. Yes, pity party for one but fuck that. I never did this to him while he was in school. Sixteen hours is a hella lot to handle with a full work schedule and child. The least he could do is take care of our son the nights he has him and not rely on me for help. I have everything scheduled out including whatever free time I have. Friday I was supposed to go to UNO to get my student id and print this stuff up at school but I had to bring sick kid to the doctor and then do the guinea pig show and tell at his school which left me with the only option of printing at home since I work all day Saturday, double Sunday, and you need an UNO id to print at the computer lab- which I can only get when school is open.

I didn't sleep at all last night. I fell asleep at 8:15 this morning because I was trying to read the 65 pages of Relacion online and none of it stuck. I had to be to work at 10:45.

I'm going to bed. Hopefully this will all look better to me in the morning and he has the grace to apologize, although at this point I doubt it.

Yay for school. I find that it is an all around pain in the ass. If you don't buy the books before clas, you'll have prof's asking why you haven't read them. If you do, well you'll be in the boat you are now. Last semester I spent probably an extra 3 to 4 hours a week in the school computer lab.

As for the bars, I didn't know whether to laugh or drop kick my phone.

grrrrrrrrrrrrr..... why do I feel like my community college was much more inline?

As for the bars..... I am coming to this fucking school with a 3.0 GPA. If I can get that while studying in a bar than I think he can kiss my ass as to where I decided to hit the books. If I was anywhere it would be Pravda with a cappuccino since they're the only place I know that's open late that I can get coffee and not freeze this time of year.

But, alas, I was HOME hooking up a printer so I can print pages upon pages of stuff.
