So, I told my friends that I was going to spend the bulk of the day with my parents because I’m going to be gone after five for the fireworks.
So we had a day planned to go on a bike ride, do a little bit of shopping and you know, fun stuff.
However, my parents decided that they were to tired, they didn’t want to do much of anything today.
Now I’m sitting at home bumming on the computer because all of my friends are out doing something, and it’s to late to be like “Heeyyy come get meee” because they’ll just have to take me home in two hours.
I’m just annoyed because my friends and I have crisscrossing family vacations and I haven’t been able to hang out with them hardly at all this summer. Today was a chance to do that but I decided not to because I thought it’d be mean to ditch my parents on a holiday.
Next time I think I’ll just make plans with friends. That way I wont end up doing nothing but biking around alone, or doing chores.
Listen, It’s not my fault that I didn’t get more scholarships, or that you guys never set up a fund for either of your children to go to college. So quit blaming me. I can only do so much, I applied for scholarships up the wazoo and I’m still searching for ones that I can apply to every now and then.
I’ve applied to jobs in town, a ton of them, even called the places a week or so after I sent in the application. I’ve emailed/applied to establishments in Fond du Lac in advance to see if I could get a job secured, which a few of them got back to me.
I know I should have been more proactive about getting a job earlier. I know that. I’m trying to fix that now. I’m not blaming you for everything, but I can’t tell you enough that I’m trying to make this easier on all of us. I don’t know what else I can do other than apply like crazy for jobs and scholarships. I don’t know what you Expect me to do.
You know that theres not much a teenager can do when it comes to paying for college, the same exact thing happened with my brother, your son. Only the difference here is is that he went Ohio State. Thousands of dollars more expensive than Marian. Yeah he got a National Guard scholarship, but you still had to pay a lot more than we have to pay for my college.
You think one would learn from the first go ‘round. Even if we had only put in a few cents a day and then brought the amount up as it got easier helping Jared pay, we still would be helping out for this experience.
I wish I had thought of it then, but being 11 you don’t really think about that kind of thing.
