Ok I have been wanting to be more active when I joined but I had a bunch of things happen in my life. I probably shouldn't even post anything like this but I am. I sort of need to talk about it some but other then my wife theres nobody to talk about it to because they don't fully understand my situation and wont listen. Ok so I joined the military and all this. Anyone who read my introduction probally knows this. So for a while life was looking up. I got a new apartment (was homeless before) and I got one of my dream cars. A Nismo 350Z and I have managed to complete some of my more expensive magic the gathering decks and I even got a gaming laptop that is more powerful then my desktop. Me and my wife got to move to California which isn't all bad but isn't all good either. I love the weather and how laid back a lot of the people are. I don't the bad drivers and how California has some stupid law for EVERYthing under the sun. I gotta laugh at all the signs that express health concern. The words "Known to the state of California to blah blah" ,makes me laugh because of how it sounds to me. Its like California knows stuff noone else does. I have several problems stressing me out. Some I know how to deal with while others frankly I dont. My wifes sister came along to find a job here only shes making almost no effort to find one and her car engine died and she still owes money on it. My wife is getting sick of her eating up all our food and doing nothing to help us. She seems to have some sort of hostility towards her sister which makes being around the both of them stressful because I don't know whos gonna snap. I don't think about that too much though as it will probably sort itself out. In the military if your married you get an allowance added to your pay called BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing)It is supposed to pay the rent. That took 2 months to kick in though so now I got nearly 3000$ of racked up debt because the back pay had to be used to fix my car. Within the first month of owning the car the clutch died. Nissan charged me a whopping 1800 in parts and labor combined to fix it. And let me say that my 850$ a month rent was still due and my chain of command requires me to have a cell phone so that was due as well. At the very same time my cell phone broke and I had to spend nearly 600$ to get a new one. Before BAH I was only making 1200$ a month income so these figures are insane. After the BAH I make an extra 1000$ a month but im still having a hard time managing with having to pay all this off and survive keeping current on bills and crap. 2 weeks after getting the car out of the shop things seemed to be going a lot smoother. Pieces were falling into place and BAM I get kicked in the face by life again. Someone runs a stop sign completely taking the front bumper off my car and wrecking my hood and breaking my head lights. Now I had to shell out 500$ for the deductable and another whole 300$ for a rental car! I am still trying to recover from that and the car breaks again within 3 days of having it out of the body shop. A mechanic who works with me says its either the electronic gas pedal or the throttle switch or the computer. None of these are cheap after what just happened. I don't know I am just not sure what to even do anymore. I have had a never ending blaze of this stuff happening for the past 2 years which is why I was homeless in the first place. This is partly why I havent been on as much as I wanted to be lately. I dont know I just thought Id throw that out there and see what outside opinions I can get.
