The last straw

Am I being punished for something? Because in the span of two weeks:

  • I found out I had 10 days to do everything to apply for FSU, the only college I feel like applying to and therefore, attending.

  • Someone rear-ended my car, and although no damage was done to them, thousands of dollars worth was done to my car.

  • I found out that my mother isn't really as open as I thought when it comes to my beliefs.

  • I found out that we don't have collision insurance for my car, and that if the cost of fixing my car is too expensive, we'll just get rid of it.

  • A category 4 hurricane (which turned out to be a category 2) hit where I live and took down the power and everything else.

  • Because of that, we all couldn't go out of the house FOREVER and when we did everything was fucking closed.

  • I feel like I can't be who I am without being attacked emotionally.

  • I feel like a lot of my friendships are falling apart (don't ASK if it's you).

  • I hate our high school drama program (THERE, I SAID IT) and I'm starting to hate journalism too, because for reasons I cannot explain, my teacher is being really mean to everyone, and really snippy with me.

  • Other stuff I'm just not going to mention.

  • And now...(and this is just the BEST fucking part)...
  • My car won't start. And don't you think the fact that my trunk is crunched in etc etc is ENOUGH to deal with?


  • So there you have it, my darlings. That has been my life for the past two weeks. And yes, I know that positive things have happened. I'm counting my blessings on all my fingers and toes. But sometimes, I would just like for SOMETHING to go right for...I don't know...a WEEK?

    *screams and runs away*

    Aww, honey, I am so sorry. Don't forget that I'm always here for you if you need me. And if ever you come to me, and i'm in one of those selfish moods, just smack me until I realize that there's more to life than what I know. and then feel free to speak! I promise I'll listen..

    remember what i said ash, just be urself, and if ur friends have a problem with it, then they dont deserve to be ur friend, and look at it this way, it could be worse, u could be attacked by a half dozen starving crazed weasels

    :) Thanks. LOL, yes that's true. I could be. I think Matt Groening said that love was like being attacked by ice weasels or something...what you said reminded me of that. Hm.

    just one thing...the hurricane...so not your fault. don't consider the hurricane "punishment" for something you did or didn't do. it didn't single you out:

    HURRICANE: Ash is having a bad few days...TIME TO GO TO WORK! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!
    Ash: Oh, darn.

    although a hurricane with a vendetta might make a pretty funny script for a D- movie...

    First of all, thank you for making me laugh. Second of all, thank you for bringing me back to reality (although, you're right, it would make a great script for a D- movie).

    I love you. :)

    I remember freshman year I was bitching to my mom about how awful my life had been lately and I was like "No one remembered my birthday, and you had a parent-teacher meeting and couldn't be there, and terrorists just attacked the WTC and the Pentagon..." and she stopped me right there and told me to get over myself because the world wasn't all about me and some families would start crying to hear how I was exploiting recent events for pity. So yeah, I have a LOT of experience being brought back to reality...

    She's right, hard as that is to say (and, I'm sure, hear). And so are you. The hurricane is not something that happened specifically to me, but to the whole state, and people have it way worse.

    Oh! This has nothing to do with the current topic, but it might make your day a liiiiiiiiiiitle bit brighter! I was in B&N the other day and I saw the Avenue Q soundtrack and I thought "OH! I'm going to get that for Ash!"























    And then I realized that Ash is, in fact, the Avenue Q soundtrack in human form.

    LMAO. You are too perfect for words. I'm going to write that one down. I have the soundtrack, actually. I listen to it all the time...it's crazy. You should so listen to it...it's awesome and hysterical.

    P.S. Girl, what do you want for your birthday? My whole plan to mail your stuff to your by your birthday has been completely messed up by:
    a) the hurricane
    b) the fact that my car is not working and I cannot go anywhere

    So it'll be late, but give me some idea? Movies, CDs...gorgeously hot men in the area who would fit into a rather large cardboard box?

    I feel bad not knowing right off the bat what would be perfect, but since I don't know what kind of chai tea or ramen you like, or how many notebooks you have...I am at a loss. O:-)

    You'll have to check with Jon-no-h to see if he's already bought one of these things, but I gave him a list:
  • the </i>Donnie Darko</i> DVD
  • Donnie Darko Jake Gyllenhaal, aka my brother the Secretary DVD
  • the 28 Days Later DVD
  • a Donnie Darko totebag I found online - this is probably your safest bet, because Jon-no-h doesn't know about it

    Is your icon from The Emperor's New Groove, or some other Disney movie?

    You could always borrow the sexiness that is Austin's car. Imagine driving down the intersection in my car only to realize that you look as though you came out of Starsky and Hutch.

    And drama equals 'the sucks' as well.

    Your car is so sexy. I so want to drive it. :)

    P.S. I know, doesn't it?

    Mmm..I didn't know that. In that case, I feel better now. :) I love you, too. Thanks for being here always...it means more to me than you know.
