All she wants to talk about is her and her husband. She doesn’t even care what I’m doing anymore. It’s really kind of sad. “I didn’t get into a program, Mom.” “Oh. Carl almost pushed me in the river. It was scary!” Fuck you too.
And Carl wants me to go to college in Florida? Fuck you, Carl. I LOVE Iowa State. I’m almost halfway done with my degree, and plus it’s one of the best design universities in the US. Why the shit would I just leave it in the middle of my time at college? I’ve got great friends that I made here, and you want me to up and leave it just because you want me to be closer to my mom? Fuck you. You may say that she thinks about me all the time, but that’s a fucking lie.
Not to mention: Florida’s probably the last place I want to be considering the events of the past year.
And this is why I have a better relationship with my dad and his new wife.
