Real life is a bitch

Well, I'm glad I got one story from the list up. I started another, but it's longer and a bit more detailed, so it's going to be a while. I'm thinking in the meantime that I might just post my HP crossover to a com, just for kicks.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out what the heck to do with my life. I've come across the first nay-sayer to the Vancouver plan. My Dad's vote is that it'd be a completely pointless move and a waste of money, and I wouldn't enjoy living with my sister. Now, mostly all of you (or all of you) don't know me...but suffice it to say that my Dad and I aren't exactly close, so his opinion actually means nothing...he has no idea who I am, who my sister is, or how well we get along. Seriously, she really is the Sammy to my Dean...yeah, we annoy each other sometimes, but she's also one of my closest friends, (not to mention she has crazy demon-powers! Hahahaha....;)

Dad does have a point on the money thing though, it'd be a lot cheaper for me to stay here. But money doesn't buy (or rent) happiness.

Another option to consider is that I actually did apply to do a PhD (though I haven't heard back about it yet), just to see how much money they would offer...I'm really not sure whether or not I want to go back to school. I do know, however, that I need to make a change in life - so, either I move to Vancouver and continue with the career I have, or switch careers, or do a PhD, or learn something practical and then do that...

To top it off, my Mum's splitting up with her live-in boyfriend, which means selling this house...which means moving...and I don't even think she can afford that, so maybe it means helping Mum move to a box in an alley, who knows. So, yeah, do I want to leave Mum alone to deal with that on her own while I take off to Vancouver?

Sigh...decisions decisions....
