The American Dream

The pictures in this entry were taken on Thursday, May 21, 2009 with my shitty cellphone camera on a walk with my friend C.T. through some of the wealthiest neighborhoods (e.g. Spring Valley) here in Washington, D.C.

GODDAMN IT, I have to update this blog ...

... it was a long and tricky but overall good day (May 22/23) that included my graduation (for my 3rd masters degree) and a big, sprawling happy hour with my friends here in D.C.

It also included my receiving a letter from some law firm concerning an "additional" $2200 in debt I owe.


I am facing the prospect of a second possible legal judgment for the combined $5000 in credit card defaults from 2007 that has now doubled to almost $10,000 from two years ago even as I remain mostly unemployed and UTTERLY broke with only $2300 to my name ... Oh, and then there's the $240,000+ in non-dischargeable student loan debt that will be coming due within 6 months (though the student loan reform bill actually helps a great deal).

I am about to clear out my measly checking account and let both bastards sue me. They'll get SQUAT. I CAN'T WAIT. (No, I don't sit around talking about how much cash I can take out from my non-existent 401-K.)

As it is, even if I had the lawyers fees, I can't do a chapter 7 bankruptcy until next spring (as one needs to wait 8 years).

Fuck every thing. I'm a bad mood right now.

Oh, yes, I may be able to get an actual research analyst job in two months thanks to a friend, although there is a tricky wrinkle. However, I can't and won't write any more about it.

Anyway, I need to write a big, proper entry that has nothing to do with that stuff.

By the way, today was also the 5th anniversary of my Mr. Sirius nightmare. I won't link to my Mr. Sirius blog at this time.

As it is, that blog is pure neurosis and obsession on my part, plus a big helping of redundancy. Boo.
