Thumbs down money makes the world go round

isn't it shit how much control over our lives it has.

everything i do is motivated by money and whether i think it's worth some of my limited supplies of it.

it's fucking bullshit.

my old man works like a dog. hates his job, his wife, most things in his life. what he's got to show for all those years of graft. a fancy job title and some savings. fuck all basically. he'll hang on to those savings until he drops dead. then i'll piss them up the wall. what was the point?

i spent the first few years of my life pissing my pants and talking nonsense and i'm going to spend the last few years doing the same. hopefully i'll have something to show for the middle bit.

this edward norton fight club moment probably has something to do with me getting stung for rent and phone bill on the same day.

Thumbs down

AND SO...my relentless persuit of s continues.

my whole summer has consisted of trying to scrabble together enough for beer tokens and billage.

i've signed up for 3 different agencies (all of them run by fuckwits), laboured for my mate's dad when available, ebayed everything i can, gambled, beg steal and borrowed, just so i can enjoy myself. i haven't enjoyed a minute of it.

not been out for AGES. there are some unopened birthday cards for my little brother downstairs that i've been sorely tempted to half inch so i can lash tonight.

The last four months have been fucking awful for me.

Thankfully started a new job last month and having a shift allowance back dated to beginning of June in a few weeks. Will be clearing 2k. Money troubles will be over.

my brother's mate has been round to drop off 300 quid he won at the casino for 'safe keeping'.
