My roommate's financial irresponsibility may end up hurting me way worse than I originally thought...

We asked her to save at least $35 for an upcoming cable/internet bill, and for gas to get my girlfriend to work. Our roomie said she'd "try" (after she's done spending money on stuff, which we either already have, or she doesn't need, or both).

Our cable/net is scheduled to be installed on the 30th. If she chose not to do the responsible thing (putting her responsibilities aghead of her desire to spite me), I'll end up missing a good chunk of the Summer Olympics, if not all of it. When I first realized that, it scared me. And I mean it legitimately scared me. Like, pants-wettingly scared me. Fortunately my pants remain dry, but missing out on the Olympics is almost worse than missing an entire NHL season/playoffs (which I did this season).

Ever since the 1998 Games in Nagano, I haven't missed them. And my roomie's immaturity may prevent me from seeing it. I'm under enough stress as it is, even without the possibility of missing the Games.

If her attitude and priorities don't improve, we'll seriously need to seek out a new roommate. :disgust:

I can see where this is probably headed. I can't even rememberback how many times I've been evicted because of roommates not having their rent. Probably like 4-5 times. :facepalm1: I would start looking for a new roommate now before you end up on the street looking for a new place to live and losing your deposits and an eviction on your credit report.

1st day as the student intern/volunteer here at United Way here in Winchester was a successful and productive day. I will be doing this until this time next month.

Best thing about being a volunteer, I can work whenever (within reason) and take off when needed.

If she didn't save up the money we asked for, that's another two weeks (or more) I'll need to wait for cable and internet. If her irresponsibility interferes with her ability to pay her share of the rent and utilities, we'll seek out a new roommate. If that can't happen, she'll have to find a new place to live. And, in all likelihood, my girlfriend and I will have to go back to St. Louis and live with my parents again. I want to go back, but not like this! Besides, I've made quite a few great friends over here.

It doesn't help that my girlfriend missed three days of work last week (hospital visits), meaning her paycheck will be less than usual. Roomie #3 will have to cough up more money than she may be comfortable with. Well, she won't have much of a choice. I just hope she's mature enough to realize that being a roommate sometimes means making sacrifices you don't want to make. My gf and I can attest to that...

PS: I hope I spelled "attest" correctly, I've never seen it written, so yeah. :gap:

I think I would have been happier with a Windows phone but T mobile only had two models and website I bought my phones on only offered one of them, the one I liked the least. I know computers but these phones... :disgust1:

My girlfriend and I didn't invite our friend to be our roommate so she could pay her share of ONE rent payment and then go crazy with the spending. She has no money left, meaning my van won't have enough gas to last until next week, and I'll miss the 2012 Olympics.
By the end of next month, her ass is out, and a more responsible, mature (and older-than-19) person will take her place. If not, it's back to St. Louis. My gf and I move into my sister's old room, and start over. It'd be great to be back home, but I'd prefer different circumstances...

But enough about that. In more positive news, a Reds fan gave me a weird look, aimed at my Cardinals hat (but only after our 8-2 win over the Dodgers). I guess Ohio isn't all bad, it's quite fun sticking it to Reds fans... :gap:

I thought going from a "regular" phone to Android was going to be a nightmare but it turned out to be the easiest and smoothest transition to any phone I've had in my life. What phone did you end up get?

Thats my phone. Pure. Amazing. I don't think I would ever go back to anything else. The screen is so large, it blows everything else away.
