Just had possibly the worst day at work I have ever had in my life.
Crying in public and glaring at people who try to talk to you is socially acceptable, right?

I hate that money is everything.
I would be like eighty percent happier if I could leave my job, move out and travel, but of course I can’t leave my job without finding another one first, and I can’t manage the latter two without accomplishing the first (and even if I did get another job, I have to pay for school, so being miserable at my parents’ house and not going anywhere is basically my only option right now.)
Can I just say that I envy my friends who don’t have neurotic mothers who need to know what they’re doing and who they’re with at every second of the day and night and who freaks out about everything, from you asking to borrow the car past 8 p.m. to discovering that someone had opened the container of cottage cheese without asking her first.
I am seriously going insane.
As much as I love my parents, I’m starting to realize that I’ve outgrown family vacations. While my parents enjoy visiting tourist attractions, my sister and I prefer to experience a city the way locals experience it. I think that traveling with my family makes me more inhibited. I wanted to take lots of photographs and write as much as possible during our trip to Washington, but we were constantly on the go and I hardly had time. I tend to be more social and talk to cab drivers, servers, and sales people when I’m by myself. That, to me, is the best part about exploring a new city: going on adventures, mingling with the locals and making friends.
