So things seem to be falling into place finally. I’m still on the stressed side, but I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I feel relieved, hopeful, and like I have a fighting chance again. I have been going balls to the wall for so long now, it’s almost hard to sit back and go with the flow. Even while I was still living with he who shall not be named, everything was a struggle, I could never just sit back and enjoy life.
I started a new job on Thursday. I work at a Kiosk called The King of Sweets in our local mall. I know I know, sound pretty fucking gay, but I LOVE it! I get paid minimum wage, but everyone I work with rocks, we’re busy enough that time flies by and it’s a mall job so I have that shit down pat! Plus, like I said, it’s in the mall, so I’m back working with a ton of people I know (my security buddies are still there!!) in a place I’m super familiar with. Hopefully everything works out and I can work here for a while, at least for another year while I’m still in school.
I don’t know if I mentioned it in my last entry or not, but he who shall not be named is fighting the order of protection. He showed up at court asking for a continuance because his lawyer couldn’t make it. I’m trying to figure out how he can afford a lawyer when he’s using my money to pay his cell phone bill, and neglecting the car payment and the insurance on it. So anyway, when the judge continued it my stress levels jumped 10-fold. I’m pretty sure I tried to light a cigarette in the court room before Katie could take them away from me. I had no idea how I was going to afford a lawyer, I had one picked out, but his retainer was almost exactly the amount of money I had to survive off of. So I called my Dad and we agreed to talk over dinner about it.
Well after some discussion, Linda and my Dad decided to retain my lawyer for me. I have to meet with him tomorrow after I get out of work and pick up little miss nood. I believe we are also starting the divorce paperwork as well, I’m not a hundred percent sure on that one though. So I have a lawyer on my side and hopefully things start swinging my way in the legal department for the first time in YEARS.
Besides all that I’ve just been hanging out doing my homework. Psych is definitely not my favorite class, but I’m trying my best to power through it. Uck. English comp is going to be even worse.
