Adulting is Hard

In Everyday, Life, Personal, Rant on January 14, 2018 by lexie-chan Tagged: , , ,

So when I came back to the US in April 2015 after staying in the Philippines for a couple of years to finish a short art course and work for two companies in Makati and BGC, it took several months for me to get a job.

So during those time, I spent my time helping out with relatives, job searching and house scouting.

In August, I got a job and in September, we got our own family house and I started contributing to the house expenses right away.

That’s tough.

There wasn’t even a buffer time for me to just save money for myself coz by then, a huge part of my paycheck was allocated to paying part of the mortgage.

And then I got into an accident and totaled my car in 2016 so I had no choice but to buy a brand new car (brand new because I plan to use it for 10 years anyway). And since it was not a simple accident, I had to go to the hospital that cost me a hefty amount of money for a ridiculously simple treatment. (I got a tetanus toxoid shot and the doctor just shook my hand. HE FUCKING SHOOK MY HAND and they billed me almost 3000$ for the ER and ambulance fee!!!!)

I’m still paying for those hospital bills…

And of course, with a new car comes the car loan and a significantly more expensive car insurance.

I’m not gonna lie, it’s hard juggling all those especially that I don’t really get paid a lot for my job.

SO IT IRRITATES ME TO NO END HOW MY FATHER SO NONCHALANTLY TOLD ME THAT HE’S NOT GONNA WRITE A CHECK FOR HIS SHARE FOR THE HOUSE EXPENSES FOR TWO FUCKING MONTHS BECAUSE HE’S GOING ON A LENGTHY VACATION IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!

Like, I understand where he’s coming from, but it’s not like we’re asking for the whole amount of his usual share. Just 300$ would be sufficient coz shelling out a total of 500$ each month between me and my brother is not that easy.

My brother and I even shares more than he does and he just wants to cut his monetary obligation all together like wth.

He’s so inconsiderate and selfish and stingy.

And of course, it doesn’t bother him that he’s taking away some financial help when our dryer vent is broken, there’s a crack in our ceiling and there’s a leak in our kitchen sink.

He doesn’t care because he’s going to go the Philippines and spend his glorious vacation with his friends.

Blech.
