I have a vent and a rant. So, here it goes..
So if any of you read my thread "FLOOD EVAC/BETTA EVAC" then you would know that the Oroville dam emergency spillway was about to fail and everyone within a 30 min. distance was evacuated, my family members and I included. As well as my bettas.
The schools have been closed because we have an atmospheric river coming and it will bring A LOT of rain so they are worried that with all the rain coming, that the emergency spillway will for sure fail. I'm frustrated because I don't want to evacuated again. It was so stressful and scary. My baby bettas were very stressed and scared. We also left my cats at home because my mom and dad said that there wasn't a high chance it would break that night but we had to leave to be safe. I was so unbelievably scared the whole time because people were looting buisnesses and robbing houses and I was so scared that someone would break into my house, hurt my cats, steal our stuff, stuff my parents have wored hard for to give my siblings and I. Things my parents have worked hard for to make sure my siblings and I have had what we want and need. We just bought this house. Our first time buying a house and my parents have bought so much stuff to make this house perfect. I was scared it would all get taken away just because someone wanted to be selfish and take it all for themselves. I was so stressed and scared and I do NOT want to go through that again. I told my parents I would NOT leave this house unless the spillway actually failed. My dad was saying "You will go if we tell you too." Yeah. Try it make me. I know my parents only care about us being safe, but I cannot go through it again. I can't. And if the spillway breaks, it wont be that much water. I mean, it's a 30ft amount of water. I live 30 min. away. Our area wouldn't be flooded badly. Not at all. I know I am acting rude and stubborn, but I can't do it again.
Now for the rant... I want a job. I am trying. I applied at Chipotle. They haven't said anything and it been almost 2 weeks. They then put on their website that they needed a team member and were hiring. Um hello? I'm right here! Did they not read my application or something!? There aren't a lot of places to apply to. I turn 18 in a month and that's when I can apply for all the good jobs. Petsmart, Petco, Home Depot, major restaurant chains, and just so so sooo much more! I also just don't want to wait. I just want a job. A lot of places are hiring for 17 year olds but not places I want. I cannot work somewhere I don't like. If I don't like the place I'm working at, then I wont be able to preform my best because I wont be happy. Ughhh. I think I will just wait. I have a feeling if I wait, it will be worth it.
Another rant... So, my mom bought me some bettafix for Lux since he has finrot. I told her that people were saying that it was a bad product and that I was scared. She then proceeds to tell me "Why didn't you research it before? That's wasting our money" blah blah blah then take it back. I offered to pay her back but she's like "no no no" Okay. Then stop complaining. She also goes "You beg us to buy you stuff for your fish and you never use them" seriously. really? In which I said "Tell me one thing that you have bought for me for my fish that I haven't used." And she says' "I don't know" Exactly because I have used EVERYTHING. And you know it. Ugh. Sorry for seeming like a brat. I just do not like when parents over exaggerate.
Also, I'm in online school. I have no friends. I went through a bad teenage stage 2 years ago and my mom seems to not trust me STILL. Even though I have changed completely. And lets not forget the fact that it happened 2 years ago. Well, since I have no friends and no anything, I have no one to talk to about my day to day fish stuff and interests. My brother has a weird fascination with cars. Always has. He talks about cars 24/7.(I am not exaggerating.) And he can talk to my dad for houuurrrs about car stuff. But as soon as I mention something to my dad about my fish, he huff and puff and siigghs like I have been talking to him about fish for hours. It's like his lungs are about to pop because he sighs so hard. Why can't I talk about my passion? How come my brother can talk to you about cars and your perfectly fine but I can't talk about fish? I know you love cars as well as he does but come on. Let me please talk. My dad isn't a bad dad. He's an awesome dad. I just don't understand. What harm does it do? Maybe if I wasn't locked up in Solitary Confinement 24/7 I wouldn't have to talk about fish all the time to my parents. My mom listens to me about my fish, but she acts interested but clearly isn't. And it makes me sad. Who else do I have to talk to? I have no one because I am not allowed to have anyone. So please, parents, don't get annoyed when I talk to you guys about my fish when you guys have literally brought it upon yourselves. Maybe if you guys gave me the trust I well deserve, then this wouldn't be an issue. This is why I want a job so bad. Thank goodness I turn 18 in a month.
Anyways, thanks for reading.
