It’s my first post of the new year. Yay! And it only took me until the very last day of the first month of the new year. Not bad or more like about time, right?.
It is currently past four in the morning and I am listening to one of my favorite bands.. Avenged Sevenfold, or A7X for short. I would normally be reading at this time, but I don’t have any new reading material and I don’t have the next volume in the current manga I am reading so, here I am.
A7X has been my favorite band for quite some time now. It is the only type of music I actually listen to, not all that mainstream type of crap people put out. I often find myself not knowing who these new artists are or even some of the more popular songs. Okay I like some, but for the most part.. No thank you.
Anyways, Avenged has always been my go to band for any type of way I was feeling. I would listen to them when I was mad, depressed, sad, or even happy. It’s a cliche, i know, but their music really does speak to me and keeps me going at times. It’s funny because the way I look, dress or act, no one would think I listen to that type of music.
That was a little off topic, but hey now you know who my favorite band is,
2015 so far has been a little meh, but it’s only the first month so who knows, it could turn around. I really, really. hope it does.
I am still working in a department store and it’s not all that bad. Holidays sucked that’s for sure. I thought holidays were suppose to bring out the best in people, but to me it seemed like it only brought out the ugly. I know it’s not the best job, but I like the people I work with and it’s helping me save up money.. at least it was.
Out of nowhere, my parents decided to start charging for rent and they are not being very lenient with the amount. As of this year, I am basically working for my parents since that is where the majority of my paycheck goes. I do get where they might be coming from, though. I am 22 years old and I know not everything in life is free, but what is bugging me the most out of this whole situation is that it came out of the blue. Like, they just dropped it on me and didn’t even consider if I could handle it. I don’t get paid very much, you know.
It’s cutting it way too close that I am even considering getting another job. Just the other day I went to return a couple of shirts at a store just so I could have an extra twenty dollars in my pocket. Pathetic, right? It’s times like these that make me regret taking another semester off, but I mean school is the reason I am working. So I can take that burden off of my parents, but how do they expect me to do that when I have nothing to spare.
This is all extremely frustrating. One way or another, I will figure out how to deal with this. This is the real world and even though I am still living in my parent’s home, I am on my own.
Here’s to 2015! May this year bring me joy, even in the littlest way possible, and not so much misery.
