Can’t take it

Seriously. I just can’t. I’m so tired. Why does everything have to be so f*cking hard? Why do I always feel so alone? Like I’ve got no one ever to lean on or talk to or depend on? I’m just so tired of this horseshit life. I’m angry and hurt and sad and so many things all at once. In two weeks it will have been 27 years since my mom passed away.

C’mon! Give a Girl a Break Already…

A little over four months now of job hunting, resume tweaking, cover letter writing … I’d really like a job soon! Is there seriously no one out there willing to give a girl a break as she transitions back into the working world?! Craziness. Only another (loooong) 52 days until we can sign our final divorce papers! Is it awful that I wish these waiting period days would go faster?! Still attempting to work out an equitable property settlement … with a distant hope that between that and securing a job in the meantime I’ll be able to go all
