life in all its glory


on August 13, 2013

So, I’ve mentioned that I work for my mom and I absolutely hate it. Yeah…it has its perks like I can take time off when necessary and blah blah. But at the end of the day working for my mom makes me want to not wake up in the morning sometimes.

Worst part about this is I also live with my parents. As a 28 year old, this is not the ideal situation.

My mom and I keep fighting more and more. Actually its more her acting crazy or overreacting and being sensitive.

Im at the end of the rope. There are two possible solutions. Either I move out and continue working for her OR get another job and stay living at home. The problem with that second option is that I’m starting grad school and itll be incredibly difficult to find a job thatll accommodate my school schedule (considering I have classes and my internship.) The problem with that first option is that my pay is being cut in half because I’m going to cut my hours to be able to go to school full time. So what im able to pay for rent is actually not much. Finding affordable housing in southern california is practically unheard of.

Theres an option on the table for housing. I know a girl thats willing to charge me super cheap for rent buttttt we’re gonna have to share a room in her one bedroom apartment. It’ll be a little cramped but its doable. I can afford what she’s offering.

I’ve always said I don’t want to share a room with anybody. But is it worth it for me to compromise? I need to get out of my house because the amount of resentment I’m feeling towards my mother is not healthy and I’m totally aware of that.

What to do? What to do?

All I know is that this sucks major monkey balls and I wish I wasnt even in this situation.


I apologize for my post not being my regular happy go lucky self.

    No worries! It seems that a lot of people are having job issues at the minute. Sometimes it’s good to take a break from being happy go lucky and have a little rant about life situations, I did it myself recently. I hope it sorts it’s self out soon 🙂 It will get better

    Hmm. Given those choices, I think I’d just bear living with my parents for awhile.

    My advice is to see where the problem really is. Sounds like the job and living situation you have now are the most idea…however there is discontent with the “roommates”. Could happen to anyone, not just with a parent. Get good and cozy with what the root of the problem is. I bet if you look at with the willingness to find a solution, you will find one. May just need to change your own attitude…sometimes that’s all it takes. Maybe you need to just get away for a little while. Maybe you mom needs something and she isn’t asking, she’s just fighting. Keep us posted.
