I actually bought a bottle of water this morning. I generally don’t like water. Today, though, I just felt like I needed something that wasn’t pure sugar.
It’s friday, the long weekend is on its way. I guess that means I should be thinking of something to do this weekend. I haven’t come up with anything… I really don’t want to just hang around and be bored though. These are probably the only times I start wishing I had a car again. I used to have a car… I loved weekends when we could take it and just drive somewhere because we could. I miss driving sometimes, I miss being able to go places without having to arrange for busfare or trains and getting people to pick us up at the station and having them drive us around while we visit and so on… in that sense, I really wish I had a car. And we can’t even rent one, because neither of us have a credit card and I’m still under 25 – most places don’t like to rent to people under 25 (there are a few who will) and most places won’t rent to anyone who doesn’t have a credit card of some sort.
That’s twice that the credit card thing (or lack of one) has really annoyed me this week. And I still can’t even get one, because I screwed up when I was 18 and they handed me one and I needed food and rent money so I took cash advances and then couldn’t pay them back because the only money I had was the credit cards. I’ve been paying some of that stuff off, bit by bit, but it’s taking a long time and it’s really hard to do, and even if I pay them off they still won’t give me a card because that bad credit will always show up on my record.
I have good credit at Long & McQuade Music – and it’s not just because I worked there. But that doens’t count. They don’t look at that, they look at the bad parts. I guess it’s human nature to watch and remember the bad parts.
I’m in such a nasty mood.
