Now what? Well I realized that I can't pay my $1200 worth of monthly bills on $600 a month, so it was either quit school and work full time, or move back in with my mother. Neither are good options, but they're they only options I had. I was content with the taking a break from school, at least, until I realized then I'd have to start paying back my student loans. Well, fuck. So now the only option is moving in with somebody. Nobody in the family will let me move in because my mom bad mouths me to everybody so they think I'm some horrendous, lazy slob and they wont take in my pets (2 kittens and a guinea pig.I'm not getting rid of them, don't even suggest it. They're a part of me now.) Well, I'm not a slob, but I can only really clean on the weekends (when I do it, it's an ordeal, trust me), and my cats happen to enjoy making toilet paper confetti all over my apartment. So the only option left is to move back in with my mom.
My mother and I DO NOT get along at all. Also, my brother is still there. The only reason I haven't moved back in already was because my mom said "legally, you can't live here. The courts said so 'cuz [my brother] is still here". I only just found out recently that was a freaking lie because she didn't want me there that bad. She says she'll take me in after months of fighting over it, but I can't bring the guinea pig (she likes cats, but she's already got 2, so this should be interesting). Also, I'll have to get a storage unit for all my shit, and I can only bring the essentials. The thing that I'm most concerned about with storage units is moisture and bugs, because obviously I can't bring my excessive amount of books with me, and I don't want them ruined. Also, my collection of movies and such that my mom and I own that I can't fit in there, and my old clothes. I'm gonna donate a lot of shit, but I keep some clothes as "goals" for losing weight, and I have sentimental clothes I don't want to get rid of (some of my prom dresses and stuff). Also, my full size mattress probably can't come, and I'll have to stick to the day bed in my old room.
Do you think this shit will get damaged? Do any of you have any experience with storage units? Also, what would you consider essential? So far I have
- 7 tshirts
- 3 pants
- underclothes and socks
- cats/guinea pig
- treadmill (will stay in garage)
TL;DR: Life is fucked up atm, moving back in with mom, wat do? What do I bring?
