I am planning on renting a room in my best friend's new house. Yesterday, she said that her mom thinks it isn't fair that she's only going to charge me $500. :( My friend also mentioned that her sister suggested that we split the utilities. My friend originally said that she would charge me $500 for rent including utilities. Yesterday, she asked if she can charge me an extra $50 for my share of the utilities since I will be getting my own bathroom and parking spot. She did say that if I want to stick to the original $500 plan, she'd be okay with that, but what was I supposed to say? I said I will pay the extra $50 for utilities. :( I'm a little upset that she went back on her word. I've never liked her mom, and now I feel like I won't feel welcome in my friend's new house (since her mom wants her to charge me much more). I will most likely still move out with my friend, but now I'm not as excited. :(
Also, yesterday my aunt asked if I'd like to go on vacation to Loreto, Mexico this year with her, my uncle, my cousin, and my cousin's 2 kids. She said that she would pay for my food. Unfortunately, there's family drama right now on my mom's side (my aunt is on my mom's side), and when she was asking me this question, she had a really rude demeanor. In addition, my relationship with my cousin is strained. I told her I would think about it, but when I got home later at night, I emailed my aunt, and thanked her for the invitation, but that I am already going to Hawaii this year, and since I used up all my sick leave, I want to save as much vacation leave as I can (just in case I get sick again, and I don't have sick leave). If my aunt had asked me in a friendly tone, maybe I would consider it, but I didn't like her rude attitude. Plus, I heard that there's nothing to do in Loreto anyway. :P
I saw some pictures of myself yesterday, and I was shocked at how fat my face looks! :( I really need to be more careful about what I eat and drink! How am I going to attract a partner if I look ugly??
I'm so glad that tomorrow's a holiday! :D And I only have a 3 day workweek this week!!!
