So, going to the credit union. Did that Saturday. What happened? Nothing, that's what. There was nobody in the bank that could help me with my issues. I got told "oh, you can apply for a car loan online!" Except not this weekend, because their website is gonna be down all 3-day weekend. Starting oh, right now. Awkward. I asked about the secured credit card and was told, "Oh, we don't DO secured credit cards. You had an unsecured one all along!"
Um, excuse me? I was very specifically told that due to my total lack of credit existence, I wasn't eligible for anything else whatsoever. This makes no sense. Oh yeah, and I'm still such a credit loser that I was told I couldn't up my limit if I wanted to. I don't even particularly WANT it upped, mind you, but ouch. So...what the fucking hell, I don't even know.
So, yeah, good thing I'm no longer deluded enough to think I can move away this year, huh? I somehow don't think buying a car is going to happen. Another one of those stupid life mistakes I made that trashed my future forevermore: not becoming a credit abuser in college. Note to all you parents: your child HAS to get a card in college, even if they are not up to handling one. Because getting them later in life? BWAHAHAHAHAH.
In other news:
(b) Dinner at Aunt Susie's was fine. Go figure.
(c) We went to my house last night to find out that the upstairs neighbors were having a hugely loud, headbangy thumpy party. It was insane. I am surprised I even slept through it, but I was pretty exhausted on Friday, so I guess I needed it.
(d) Mom threw a shit fit about my winter coat-- she decided she didn't like it, even though guess who bought it years ago-- and demanded that we roam around Sacramento looking for winter coats before she went home. I hate having to wear winter coats in the first place, so this was something I was Not Into. I hate having to wear huge winter coats in the first place and it's not like they tend to look good on me anyway. She bought a really expensive black one and then proceeded to find a cheaper purple one and said to keep both. I don't even know.
(e) Meanwhile, I just wanted to attempt to find new black dressup boots before my current pair keel over and die, since they're kind of on their last legs as is. I found a lot of contenders, including one practical pair and one pair with 3 1/2 inch heels, and a pair of Coach lace-ups that were some sort of fancy-ass version of the Docs most people wear, except my feet are whiny-ass bitches that had blisters for a month after wearing my actual Docs once. They were brown-- brown is NOT my color-- so I did not get them in the end. Alas, because except for the looks and the part where they just don't look dressy at work they felt awesome.
I actually bought the practical ones and then uh... went back for the giant heeled boots. It's kind of ridiculous, but there's a certain size heels that I've found are bizarrely comfortable to wear even when the heels are huge. If they're chunky enough heels, it's totally fine. I had an awesome pair of sandals with heels like this, but I stupidly left them at the last ex's, we broke up, god only knows what happened to them...so yeah. Anyway, it was kinda dumb to want them, but I like them. I don't know if they're up for hiking around all the time, but we'll see.
(f) I also found a calendar of Los Angeles that I'd wanted, so yay there.
Anyway, it was a really tiring, draining day and I just wanted to keel over and die for most of it. And normally I like shopping.
