Be it good or bad, big or small, is there anything interesting going on that you want to tell us about?

Of course, I’m going through a massive Beatles phase at the moment, hence why I’m here. I dabbled in Pink Floyd for a bit, but I’m saving other bands for when I’ve gotten accustomed to ‘proper’ music – the Beatles are really the first lyrical music I’ve gotten into. I’m also getting into filmmaking and songwriting, as I’ve said in the Introduction thread. Just got a new camcorder, although I don’t have anyone to film with. ahdn_paul_01

Outside of that, there’s something really, really big going on. It’s a very long story, and it’s gone on for about a year. I’ll be happy to post it if you want; I’d like people to know.

Been writing songs both lyrically and musically (half of them still don’t have the music) but haven’t recorded one yet. I have like fifteen songs in total that I have wrote in eight months. I only have two that I am trying to push myself to record.

I’m sitting here charging my phone, waiting for the next 17 minutes to be over so I can leave the office, wasting time on the Internet, and listening to my co-worker play “smooth jazz” on Pandora radio.

Just found out the course that I applied to (remember the weekend trip I made to the freezing cold place) was full up for the month of June so I could either go as a leader on the July course or not be a leader at all. I’m out of the country in July so I have to go back as a bleeding student again!!! blue-meanie

Seven years of my life I have been a student for that bloody company, I tasted power last year and I want it again! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Well it’s Pledge Drive Time at the public radio station I work for, and as Operations Director, I’m responsible for making sure all the special shows are ready to go, all the fundraising clips we play on the radio are ready to go, all the scripts are up to date, all the regular duties get done and all the volunteers who answer the phones are coordinated. In other words, I really won’t see my family for 9 days. It kinda sucks, but it’s part of the deal when I took the job and I knew that.

I broke the screen on my phone.  A new one won’t come cheap.  I should have been more careful.

‘Enjoying’ the last month of obligatory schooling, all the while studying my ass off for the state exams. Had one of those yesterday, in fact, it was this project everyone has to make. I chose to analyse a Jane Austen novel, in English too, so it went smoothly. Even though I didn’t fret over it too much – I knew I’d get all the points anyway, with the 50ish pages I wrote! – it feels good to have it off my back. I am really happy I chose to do it in English, because if I had to do it in my mother language, I know I would’ve been too nervous and anxious and that might have possibly lost me point or two. 

Right now I’m debating whether or not I can go through with pausing a year before college, so I can improve my German in order to get into college in Germany.

Now I’ll bring the thread to a grinding halt:

I’m about to be homeless.

Yes, homeless.

 

My ex-wife is defrauding me of over $12,000 which is getting garnished from my paycheques, leaving me to live on $275 a week.  This obviously can’t cover rent, food, utilities, gas, insurances, etc. etc. etc…

So while I can prove it’s fraud and have all the documents, I have to go through the court, which takes longer than the amount of time I can afford to float myself with credit cards and loans.  So I get the fun task of telling my children (9 and 11) that even though they live with me for two weeks of every month now, we’re losing our home.  And as a good parent I have to tell them why in a way that won’t mess them up for life.  Even though seeing their Father lose everything will certainly do that anyway.

Bloody hell, that’s horrendous. Can’t you get financial help from some agency or somewhere to tide you over until its sorted?

Good luck thru it all – i don’t know what else to say.

There really isn’t much to be said.  There isn’t any financial help to be had because when your wages are garnished it doesn’t get taxed and doesn’t get reported.  So even though I only get $275 a week now, I don’t qualify for any type of aid because what I earn before deductions is a much larger number.

Yup, it sucks.  I’m just waiting to see if my lawyer can do *anything* to speed up the process, but it’s a race against time.

Good heavens! SH, my heart goes out to you. Do you have family or really close friends who can loan you some space until you get somethings settled down?

I’m wishing the best for you and your kids, SH. That’s scary and just awful.

Right, OK, I shall share my story. I didn’t really want anything to get too personal, so @ScrambledEggs has PM’d me just to talk, which is one of the nicest things anyone’s ever done for me – and I’ve only just joined. :)

So anyway, here it is. It’s long.

I’m so sorry SH! I really hope you can find some way around this without you and your kids being in that situation. It really sucks that they don’t take those deductions into account… There’s no place that you can prove that’s how much you make that’ll give you a loan/help-album?
