I thought I'd just tell my closest friends this, but then I realized that this would be blog #666 for me. So it would be the perfect chance to talk about my mom.

For those of you who don't know, my mom's been bitching at me for years for various things. She complains about how I've wasted two years of my life. (It was just one, and it was only wasted because she decided at the last minute that I couldn't go to this one school because it was far away.) She's been yelling at me to get my license, despite the fact that I've failed 5 times, she never bothers to help me study, most of the questions aren't even in my book, and I don't even have any money or tickets to get to the DMV.

Now, with that in mind, let me tell you how a great day was ruined. Earlier, I got my acceptance letter in the mail. I was accepted into a college for a journalism course, which would be just over $2000 for a 4 month course, and just over $6000 for a full year. Altogether, it's at least 1000 dollars cheaper than the old school, and the old school only covered half a year. This school is also wonderful, had amazing teachers, and it's real close to my dad's house. And my mom's been bitching at me to get in for years.

When she gets home, she is screaming at the top of her lungs. She thought this was way too much. (You know, despite the fact that I'd be paying with my own money.) She screamed about how my dad doesn't give any money and how everyone likes him more than her. (Which is true - I like him more because, while he does want me to improve and such, he's a lot nicer and more respectful about it.) She's declared that I can't go, and instead should get a job. I sort of have to listen to her, since she controls my funds and has blackmailed me several times before. After that, she compared me to people who are more successful than me.


Oh well. I have a job interview lined up. If I get it, I get to work at a pet store.

    Blog #666?

    Here:



    You shouldn't be so hard on your mom. She just wants what's best for you. I do agree that she should be much kinder about how she shows it though. Sad thing is, she probably thinks she's the best parent ever. My mom is kinda like this too =/
    You should probably discuss her harshness with your dad. Good luck with the interview!

    ... Wow. Sounds like my mother, who controls my living situation, despite my mental illness and such. I hope it all goes well for you.

    It probably won't help. My mom despises him, and my dad has no money.

    She does think she's the best. Everyone has talked to her about this in the past before, but all she does is scream, throw a tantrum and walk off until she's ready to talk about whatever random thing she wants. It's hard not to be hard on her because she's so unreasonable.

    Man your mom behavior is really awful. :/ I hope all goes well for you, especially with the job interview, since you really don't deserve to have to deal with this sort of shit.

    That's really unfortunate. It's sad that she can't be supportive of your choices or at least try to help you with your problems rather than blaming you for them.

    How exactly does your mom control your funds? Do you have a joint bank account or are your wages paid to her account or something? I'd suggest getting control of your own money as soon as possible, if she's not going to realise that you're old enough to be making your own decisions, then it would be a good idea to take that power into your own hands.

    In the meantime, hang in there :)

    Good luck on your interview! though i would recomend when you do get a job, make sure your mother has NO access whatsoever to your earned funds. i would also look into schollarships. I do find it a bit peculair that your Mom would still have controll over Your funds. I know in Ohio when you become 18, you gain full legal controll of bank accounts that a parent may have "custoidial" status on. And that a joint account that would be titled under both you and your mom that both of you can withdrawl from. I dont know what the banking laws in Canada are but i would make sure that she has no Legal access to any income you make. I do hope the situation becomes better because it seems your mom has an ego issue. Just remember not to let her dampen YOUR goals because this is YOUR life. not hers. Just do what is the best for YOU. wether it be that you go to school part time and work or soemthing else, as long as YOU work hard, YOU can do anything you put your mind to.

    Sounds like hell in a handbag. I have an off and on thing like that with my mom, except she's not nearly as awful as your mom. As much as I'd love to sugar-coat this to make you feel better, I can't, your mom sounds like a mean-ass woman. I had something like that with my dad when I was younger, except instead of word violence it was something else :P Yeah, sounds like you got a lot of turmoil going on at this point in your life. I can understand what a pain in the ass that's gotta be, in terms of the DMV part, I haven't gotten my permit yet either. I'm actually trying to study the book again though and might give it a shot next week at some point. If you need to, I could always post some info from my book on here if you need it. Unfortunately I'm not sure how accurate a Mississippi Driver's Learning Book would be for a Canadian. :X
