Those comments would make me mad too! Why is it our family members are always the ones who hurt us the most with their words? I also hate when I do something and they double-check it or redo it like what I did wasn't good enough. Well, if it wasn't good enough, it's because you don't let me do enough to gain experience. I'm ashamed to admit at my age that I still don't know how to cook or even properly do the laundry. But my mom says it's just easier if she washes my stuff with everyone else's. *shrugs* Sigh.

It sounds like we have a lot in common. My mom is a perfectionist. Right now we have leaves piled up by the garage. She's been griping about it for days. She can't clean them up and I don't want to simply because we did not move into a condo to be doing stuff like that. I guess I'll do it in between my mopping and vaccuuming.

So here I was, just folding clothes trying not to lay down and fall asleep on them when all of a sudden some girl walks into my dorm room. She then proceeded to ask me what I was doing here...then she realized she was in the wrong room and left. Seriously, was my name on the door confusing to you?

Yeah, my mom is a perfectionist too. Sigh. You and me, we're like soul sisters.

Do you think she was drunk?

Oh, yeah. She definitely was. There is a room down the hall which a large group (probably about 9 or 10 boys and girls) all get drunk on Fridays and Saturdays. Not very good for me because I usually work early mornings on Saturday and Sundays. Like I have to be at work at 7:30, well today now. They pretty much just wander the hallway yelling all the time and puking in the bathroom.

It makes me think about how different my priorities are from most other college kids. Like I can honestly say that sometimes I don't feel like a normal college kid. I work around 35 hours a week (even though I don't have to, my school is all paid for) and I'm a full-time student living on campus. I basically have no social life and what time I do have I've been giving it to the guy I've begun seeing. I am proud to say that I've tripled my savings account so far this school year, though, while still being able to indulge in luxuries (aka shoe addiction). :)
