Things on my Mind 5/19/16

I just left the chiropractor’s office after getting adjusted and really, I don’t feel a difference.  I understand that fixing a 16 year problem will not happen over night or in my case, four times, but just a little relief would be nice.  I do feel a little better about 10 minutes after the fact, but then it’s back to pain.  The VA said that I probably need surgery but they will not pay for it until i get into my 50’s.  They said i’m too young (36) right now to have to go through that.  I call bullshit, but then again ,it’s the VA and the shit they feed you has to be taken with a grain of salt.

Graduation is tomorrow and I’m both excited and worried.  Excited because i can finally say that I have a master’s degree but worried because I know that those student loans are going to be a bitch to repay back. Putting out resumes is kind of like fishing.  You throw out a hook and hope that the big one bites.  Unfortunately, sometimes it’s just a minnow.  Now granted, when you’ve been fishing all day, even a minnow can make you excited. Well, for as many resumes I have put out there, I’m beginning to think that the pond needs to be restocked.  I really can’t put all the blame on the pond of course, sometimes when you catch a decent sized fish, you throw it back, hoping for a bigger one.  That is my problem.  I’ve had a few good jobs, one that paid crazy good, yet I through it all away hoping for something better.  This of course does not look good on a resume.  Here’s the thing, I don’t leave a job for the sake of just being bored and leaving, but the jobs that i have had, have been physical and right now in my current condition, I just can’t do those types of jobs anymore.

Late last night/ early this morning there was a plane that was flying from Paris to Egypt that went missing from radar.  Trump tweeted out that it was terror related and of course the twitter police (Hillary and Bernie supporters) all tweeted how he was jumping the gun.  Funny thing though, this morning the Egyptian president said that it was terror related. So yeah, jumping the gun wasn’t so far fetched was it.

Banks have to be the biggest ripoffs.  I’ll use my bank as an example.  If I have $50 in my account and my kohls automatic bill pay is $55, my back will pay it, putting my account        -$5.  On top of that, they will charge me $27 for ISF which will bring it to -$32. Now lets say walmart automatic bill pay is $40.  Because my account is in the red, they will not pay it obviously.  However, they will still charge me $27 for ISF even though they will not pay it.  That leads it to -$59 in my account.  Walmart doesn’t know that there is no money, just that the payment didn’t go through, so they try it again.  And again the bank rejects it and tacks on another $27 for ISF. So now my original -$5 is -$86 all thanks to ISF fees.  Of course people will say that it is my own fault for not having the money in there, and yes, that is true, but life happens and sometimes you go through a rough patch.

Sitting here at Starbucks, I looked out the window and just saw a guy drop his food on the ground, look around, picked it up and put it in his mouth. 5 second rule I suppose.  But yeah, i’m not eating something that feel on the ground outside where people sit and possible have shit on their shoes.

I have more to talk about, but I just hit a writing wall.
