Burnout vent...

Mom was supposed to send me a check a couple weeks ago, but she got the address wrong. I suggested she send the money via PayPal, but she said it was too hard to use cuz she's old or something. PayPal's supposed to be easy enough for people like her to use it. Without that money, I'll have $71 to live on until August 16th, assuming dad lets next month's phone bill slide like he did this month. I have a huge backload of laundry to do, and rolls of quarters are $10 apiece.

I can still afford to eat, just not enough that I have much energy throughout the day. The insomnia just makes it worse. No matter what I've tried (still haven't looked into acupuncture yet), I just can't wake up after 7am. I'm just dragon tail most of the time.

I don't understand how the other interns, who make the same amount as I do, can have so much energy AND afford to get drunk and also go on trips to Yellowstone or Canyonlands or camping or whatever. Do they not have to pay for their own car insurance or phone bills? It's not like I don't wanna go with them, either. That's another problem; I'm too shy to really make friends with anyone and thus get invited to do cool stuff. And no, I can't just turn on a "be more social switch" and jump into a conversation. It's rude and awkward, and I'm trying to be less of both.

Am I missing something here?

Acupuncture's always worth a try. Anything to de-stress.

In my experience: interns like that either A) have parents paying for everything or B) can't afford what they're doing but do it anyway.

Is there any way she could wire money to you? I've never done anything like that, I have no idea how it works or if that's even a good idea nowadays >>'.

I'm not positive that I've done bank transfers with my mom before, but I have done a lot with my dad.
