The Party Pooper

The guy I was talking to before the 10 whomper had two kids,. usually i don't talk to guys that have kids for a number of different reasons. This guy was really nice, so I let it go. What was I thinking??? While we were talking and getting to know each other better, my mother asked for a list of people i would like to come over to her house for my birthday celebration.. Of course I added him to the list..

A month into everything he asked me when I would be ready for a relationship. We both decided we should get to know each other better. After getting to know him better i realized it would never work. We had too many things that were not a like, and our lives were going in two different directions. So I nicely slowed everything down to darn near a stop. The week before my birthday he calls me and start talking about how much he likes me and how he misses spending time with me. Of course I was still nice to him he didn't do anything to me. I was sure he was talking to other people,so I didn't care about his comments. .

So now it's finally the day of my friend and family birthday get together at my mother's home.The most ridiculous things happen. My one best friend gets lost and on her way to my house she says she sees my other friend who is also the friend of the guy I was talking to, a baby and another girl. After she describes the people better to me, I realize it is the guy I been talking to his child and his baby mama all planning on coming to my mother's house. What the hell???? Who does that??? Who brings their baby mama to the girl who they have been talking to's get together. This fool had the audacity to say I thought it would be okay to bring her.

Lesson learned: Do not talk to people who are not on your level if they are unequally yolked leave it alone. I hate the whole dating thing it whomps.

Single-mother Madness

This is just a rant. So today I am aggravated. The source of my aggravation is single mothers who are more focused on getting a man then taking care of their kids. Now don't get me wrong I understand that no one wants to be a single mother and everyone wants companionship, but it's just getting ridiculous. I know females who are so focused on spending time with men that couldn't care less about them. They have overly exhausted their babysitting options to spend time with man after man. One girl has her child in a bad living situation and instead of focusing on fixing her situation she frivolously spends money and invests time in men who couldn't care less about her or her children. The child is a terror and she can't even see it because she so busy focusing on men. Granted, I am not a single - mother so there are some things that I may not be able to understand. What I do understand is that when you have a child and choose not to put it up for adoption you are signing up to raise an individual, not let it raise itself. As a parent you should protect your child from negative situations not allow them to live in them. Men will come and men will go but when you have a child the focus has to be that child and giving them a safe and positive environment to grow up in. Children should be exposed to new situations and fun environments they shouldn't see people drinking and smoking and be around constant cursing just because a female wants a man. The situations that I watch happen over and over make me sick to my stomach. I know when I have kids there will be no way i expose my child to such B.S. My public service announcement for the day don't have kids if you can't take care of them!!!!!

The Apartment How freakin unfortunate

Let's talk about unfortunate. Well it has been a while since I have last written on this blog. I was too busy getting material (having unfortunate things happen in my life) for this blog. So I'm not sure where I will start. Okay I'm going to try not to make this too drawn out. I began renting a cute little apartment with a balcony that overlooked the park. I absolutely loved it. i thought I would stay in this apartment for the next couple years until I finished school. a month after living there I found out that the place had plumbing problems and my landlord was really a slumlord(can we say 2 whomps). My slumlord was a maniac he tried to enter my apartment without permission at 11pm (people have been shot for less-not by me but if i had a gun at the time it could've happened) So we got into it that night. One of the other tenants called the police on him that night. It became an all out war I had to contact the City's inspectors they came out 4 times and fined him. They had the nerve to give him small fines after deciding the apartment was unsafe for human habitation. UNSAFE FOR HUMAN HABITATION!!!! As far as I was concerned that meant I was Living in a death trap. So a month after I moved in mold started growing under the paint in my bedroom.

All of a sudden I had mice. The city said that there wasn't a sealant around the pipes leading to outside so that's probably how they got in. So I got a cat. Doesn't she look ready to get a mouse.

The ceiling in the living room leaked every time it rained it got so bad that I had two holes in the ceiling and my puppy would bring me pieces of sheet rock that fell down.The amount of water that came in was ridiculous.The landlord had some guy that looked like he had a drug addiction put tape over the hole and painted it. Here is the result after the rain.

I wrote letters, made phone calls, spoke to legal aid, contacted inspectors, went downtown and got the records from the apartment to find out what happened. Then I withheldpartial rent. This was the kicker now my landlord began to threaten me so I filed police reports it was crazy. Long story shorter we came to an agreement I got to keep the money that I withheld and my security deposit and my lease was broken. So at such short notice I ended up moving back home with my mother(
2 whomps @ the loss of independence)
