    If money is the only problem, you can learn Graphic Design on your own quite easily. Although I am nowhere good enough to be called a "Designer", I have self-taught myself Photoshop and other software.

    Once you've earned enough money, you can expand your skills with this course.

    Also, Designing is one of the most paid jobs if you're good at it, you can tell your dad that.

    Ah, that's quite respectable. You might want to try asking him about it, convince him that you'll be happier if you're designing Mercedes cars and Apache helicopters and earning loads of money. I personally find it much more stable if you marry when you have a job you like, regardless of who it is. Struggles with parents are real and can be a real challenge because they believe they know more than you and want the best for you even though they may unintentionally be doing real harm.

    I'm just 20 btw so I might not have a clue wtf it is I'm saying haha

    you said all the right things..also about ''doing real harm'' thats quite true too..all the time what parents say is like a prayer for things to eventually happen..(Based on my life experience)

    I don't even have an ISP (I use Mobile Hotspot from my Phone) but even that cuts out randomly so I [sort of] understand your frustration. JUST LET ME USE MY INTERWEBS! lol

    Vulgar Language Ahead:
    I don't even wanna go to bed, because it means that I have to get up and go back to work. I [somewhat] enjoy my job. The hours, the pay, but I just can't stand the people. Most of my co-workers are fine but I mean the customers.
    This one bitch pissed me off so much this morning, I wanted to drag her out of her car and smack her upside the head for being so rude.

    I just really hate people in general. If you think, for any reason, you're entitled to ANYTHING or that you're better than anyone else, suck my 2 inch dick and go fuck yourself because you're not. If anything, you're entitled to a bullet in your head. Cunt.

    I feel you man. I had to deal with a fair number of rude and annoying customers at my previous job too though you seem to have it worse than I did. Never felt like putting a bullet in their head, just a punch in the face would do.

    My father stopped by today..

    I do love the guy, but boy does he stress me out. First, he started talking about my bills which is none of his fucking business. Unless he plans to pay 'em, shut up!
    Next a close family friend recently had to put down her dog after 13 years so we talked about that and he knows that Zevah is incontinent now (meaning she has random, multiple accidents) so he asked me if I'm prepared.. I said "Of course not. I'll handle it, but it's going to be hard and I'll most certainly take off work and spend a few days crying in the corner of my room."

    I guess I'm just upset that instead of making it a casual meeting, he just comes and is like "Are you paying your bills? Can I have some Money? Zevah's gonna die you know." :rage:

    I visited my new apartment two days ago with my mom and her boyfriend and then I saw something I hadn't notice when I visited the apartment first time: there isn't a lamp on the living room's ceiling. And since summer is over soon, nights willn't be as bright as earlier and it's going to be difficult (and propably harmful) to me sit at the computer in the room with dimn lighting during the evenings.

    I moved into the apartment yesterday. When I was unpacking my things, I noticed that there isn't enough room to both coffeemaker and microwave oven in the kitchen.

    Later I noticed that the faucet system of my apartment was different than I was used to. It took me while before I understood how it worked but I still can't get hot water from kitchen's faucet, so I'm going to wash dishes in the bathroom.

    I know that these are quite small things to complain about but I thought that bottling up my frustration doesn't do me any good either.

    Sorry to hear, I was in the same predicament [sort of] when I first moved in here. The stove didn't work, some of the lights didn't work, there was a slow draining in the bathtub, parts of the yard were just black, dead patches and there were broken windows and random bits of garbage everywhere. For what I'm paying, most people would have declined renting it (and my family thought the same thing) but I love this place! (now that I got everything in order :P)

    It's a bit pricey, yes, but my landlord is a very reasonable guy and the more I work on the place, the more he knocks it off my rent. Plus I'm not on a lease, but a month-to-month basis so he could have evicted me last month for falling behind after leaving my last job, but I always keep him up-to-date with my financial situation so he's a very understanding guy, so long as you let him know what's going on. But I digress, this is supposed to be a "Rant Thread" and I have a couple of doozies :P

    Rant #1: I recently bought a new phone, top line model that just came out not too long ago. I switched carriers so I got a $300 phone for free in doing so, with the same plan, EXCEPT the internet on this thing works great when it wants to. Most of the time it just craps out.. The phone itself is amazing, but if I'm paying for the literal same service as before, why the f*ck does the internet suck so much? (Gonna talk to them about it tomorrow) :rage:

    Rant #2: I can't even wrap my head around this one. You all know I love Zevah to death, that will never change. So I have 3 days off for the weekend, so as usual, I wanted to get some cleaning done. She's needed a bath for a while now, as well as her bed needed a deep cleaning. After being up for 13+ hours doing house/yard work, cleaning, etc. I took her out twice (this morning and afternoon) to go potty. I figured before I get my final shower, I'll give her a bath, clean the tub, then take a shower so we can relax the rest of the night. Wouldn't you know it, she shits in the tub while I'm bathing her, so I have to remove her, scrub the tub (while she's still covered in suds) then spend another 2 hours cleaning the house again, after finishing her bath.
    As I've said, I can't be mad at her, as I know she's getting older and has since become incontinent, but just having to clean again after already cleaning and adding to my workload just made me frustrated.

    I suppose what makes me upset about Rant #2 the most is the fact that she's getting older and I don't know if I can handle her inevitable passing at this point. I'm just not ready yet..

    I have got a job as part-time mailman.

    When I applied for the job, I thought I would get a full-time job but it's just that I go deliver post only when I'm needed.

    Today wasn't any work for me and I'm little bit frustrated about it because less working hours means less earned money to use on necessary things, such as rent, bills, student loan and groceries.

    A friend of mine is pressuring me to propose to my girlfriend already. Yes, we're not getting any younger. But you don't tell me what to do especially since it's between me and my girlfriend. Moreover, she also says that the engagement ring is supposed to be 3x my salary in terms of value. Like, WTH! I don't need this kind of information. :rage:

    That’s all BS. The relationship is about the relationship, not some imaginary goal set by society or some materialistic standards set by the diamond industry. You’re perfectly justified on your feelings!!

    That's definitely true. It's 2019 people! Times change. We don't need to be materialistic just to prove our love.
