Bimmer_5 I haven’t written in awhile because the impossible happened last week. My father died, suddenly and tragically. I got the phone call at 9:30 pm. Five minutes later, my boyfriend was driving me the five hours to my hometown.

Before leaving the house, I emailed my boss immediately (I don’t have his phone number) and spent a week with my family. When I got back to work yesterday, I found that I will only get paid for twelve hours of the forty hour week I missed because that’s how much leave time I had saved up.

Needless to say, there are some times in your life where you just have to get through without thinking of the money. But then you have to remember there are other times when you actually have to deal with it. Hello, reality. I’m ready to deal, and not just financially.
