barking mad

6 Mar

I finally have some peace and quiet after two hours of barking.  They just wouldn’t stop.  My parents are on vacation and I’m the only one here.  Apparently the dogs know that, and if they can’t see me they bark continuously.  Now that they’ve finally ceased the racket I can’t even flush the toilet upstairs.  If they hear me they’ll start again.  I wouldn’t mind hanging out in the room with them, except it’s stinky and freezing.  I don’t know if I can take five days of this.  Do they do that when I leave the house?  Sigh.

As you may already know, I’ve been pretty unsatisfied with the state of my life lately.  I feel like I’m going to end up barking mad sometimes.  Every week I get more and more frustrated with my underemployment.  Seemingly, I’m not qualified to do anything.  I literally make negative money.  Thank you, student loans.  Each month I get slightly further into credit card debt.  At this rate I’ll have no way of paying tuition in the fall.  I really, really didn’t think it was going to be this difficult.  Also, I’ve decided to take a break from dating.  I’ve been putting energy into that particular aspect of my life for over a year now and it’s been exhausting and almost entirely unsuccessful.  It just isn’t working and, frankly, I can’t be bothered anymore.  I have more important things to deal with at the moment, like avoiding utter destitution.  Double sigh.
