So, last week I mentioned that something funny was going on with my unemployment compensation. And I figure out what it was: I don’t receive it anymore! I was under the misunderstanding that the state takes your maximum payout amount and divides it evenly over the course of a year. So, for the sake of easy math, if you were qualified to receive a total of $5,200 in benefits, you would receive $100 a week for 52 weeks.
That is not the case and I am out of money and still drowning in debt. Thankfully, like I also mentioned last week, I have a good, kind-hearted support network that won’t let me be homeless.
In other news, I’m still trying to figure out how to make friends. Unfortunately, due to conflicts with my class schedule, participating in any clubs is out of the question this semester. Maybe next semester.
I’ve decided to give Meetup another chance. If you’re unfamiliar with Meetup, it’s a website where people organize events based on interests and hobbies and you can go and meet new people. Unfortunately, I’m still running into the same problem; I live in a rural area of East County San Diego and there are not a whole lot of people nearby who share my interests. There’s some stuff up in North County, but it takes me four and a half hours to get to North County.
I really should learn to drive.
In other other news, I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I am looking at all the math classes I have to take for my new major and my stomach just sinks further and further with each one. The Cupcake Witch is not good at math, my loves. That’s why I’m not the Math Witch.
Why did I change my major from English, again? Oh, right. Because the jobs you can get with a M.F.A. in Creative Writing are novelist (if you’re one of the lucky 1/1,000,000) or Professor of Creative Writing. I remember, now.
One of these days, I’m going to make a list of every major I’ve had and the reasons why I
woefully sabotaged myself decided to change it so you can all see my neurotic fear of success in actual, quantifiable words.
Is there other other other news? I don’t think so.
I love you all.
