SUNDAY RAGE STROKE:
I don’t have health insurance, so I thought I’d apply through Obamacare. Dumb idea. It took me about 3+ hours with over 1.5 hours on the phone with people who had no idea what they’re doing. Apparently their website has issues, particularly with browsers. They wanted me to use Internet Explorer. Sorry, no. When I asked if they could send me the information online, they said no. I really cannot stand government employees who don’t know what they are doing.
I was so fed up that I finally just called Blue Cross Blue Shield. For about 15 minutes, i got everything I wanted, including decent prices and they explained everything.
I find Obamacare much more frustrating and more expensive than it needs to be. I don’t like to get political, but while we’re on the topic of Obama, I voted for him and consider myself a liberal, but I am not too pleased with him in terms of the Affordable Care Act (It required me to cut back hours on my job as a graduate student, which equaled less pay, even though my job gave me insurance…Someone please explain that), Obamacare, and immigration.
Then my legs broke out in hives.
PROBLEMS. If you have health insurance through your job, consider yourself lucky.

I never knew how serious fire ant bites were until I moved to Texas

After the bite made my entire knee swell up, I had an allergic reaction and developed a terrible cold along with hives every day. I’m just thankful that my throat didn’t close up because I don’t have health insurance. I made it through 4 months without health insurance. And my out of pocket dr appointment was the same amount of one month of health insurance.

Problems.

I’m going to have a rage stroke or a breakdown. Not only did someone go through my backyard a few weeks ago and stole my favorite chair and our lawnmower, but I bought a Kate Spade wallet online to treat myself for feeling so crappy about life and it was stolen off my front porch. I can’t fucking win at this house. I’ve lived here for two years and none of this shit started until my new roommate moved in.
All I wanted was a wallet that I got on sale to replace the wallet I’ve been using since I was 14 (Yeah, it’s 14 years old). I know this is very first-world problem, but really??? I can’t even have a wallet? I can’t leave anything outside or someone will come up to my porch and steal it? Fuck everyone. If I find out who did this I’m going to get them, but for now, I curse their existence. Stop taking my stuff! I haven’t done anything bad lately and I’m just trying to get by :(

Since I’m sad and don’t have cable, I thought I’d go back to learning life lessons from Lauren Conrad (Is it sad that I still kind of want to be her? I think I felt this way after seeing her wedding photo. After a bunch of shitty boyfriends, you can find love! That sounded super cheesy. I found Jason to be her most questionable choice). Is it sad that at age 28 I can kind of but not really relate to a 20-year-old’s life?? Not sure if I’m that immature or if she moved at an accelerated pace (I feel like those girls were constantly on a husband hunt).
Season 2 of The Hills seemed to be the most dramatic or a good place to start because that’s when Spencer and Brody entered the picture. Remember when Jen Bunney hooked up with Brody after Lauren had been hooking up with/crushing on him? How she said she had never been so betrayed by best friends?
While I find most of LC’s advice to be true (Heidi, you’ve chosen. Having a few good friends over a bunch of fake ones. Sometimes doing nothing is just as bad. Admit you did something shady, etc etc), I disagree with her reaction, which was to take all of her anger out on Jen Bunney and give Brody a pass. He didn’t get in trouble at all, he attended her birthday, and they went out for breakfast the next day! I feel like when stuff like this happens, it’s always woman vs woman when I believe that the guy is also to blame (It takes two to tango, cliche lovers). He just wanted to get some ass and he didn’t care from who and didn’t care that it could potentially destroy a friendship. There’s too much woman on woman hate when you know it should be directed at male sociopaths.
I think I mentioned it before, but something like this recently happened to me and I cut off ties with both of them (Which is actually easier said than done) because I think we are the company that we keep and people who do that to you were never really your friends anyway. Or see how Ludacris describes this in his instagram (You should follow him, btw. It’s entertaining). I feel like living on my own in a new city alone has really made me become hypersensitive about friendships. Unfortunately, a lot of people are selfish or have sociopath tendencies (I’ve recently become obsessed with learning about sociopaths because I feel like 50% of the male population are sociopaths…). I feel like I’ve learned the hard way that you can’t be so trusting, open, and kind in this world because sometimes you just get burned. 
In other news, I feel like LC had a lot of friendship fights, which I don’t think is normal for a regular person. Not my problem. Do you think she made up with Jen Bunney? NMP.
I love the part where LC calls Jen Bunney a bitch.

I just figured out why I’ve been feeling so depressed lately. Not only did the friend group that I built here over the past two years move away and not only am I underemployed, but I got rid of my best friend: Cable. I decided it was too costly to continue being friends, so I got rid of her and now I’m so sad because I find myself lost with nothing to do. I don’t know what’s going on in the world anymore. I never saw that football player punch his fiance or whatever she was. I didn’t get to watch the return of The Mindy Project. I haven’t seen a single episode of Pretty Little Liars since July. I can’t watch sports. I think it really hit me when I realized that the new shows were coming back. I can’t believe I let my bff go. When I stay in on a weekend not by choice, I don’t have my backup friend and it sucks.
I also think that this is why I enjoy going to the gym so much: It has cable on multiple televisions and I find myself working out longer than usual just so I can complete a show. It’s so sad. I don’t even like Real Housewives of New Jersey, but since it’s on the screen in front of me, I must watch to find out what happens to the Giudices.
Let’s be honest—You also probably found this blog because I wrote about Teen Mom, Real World, Keeping up with the Kardashians, etc. TV was my life. My life feels so empty without my bff and I hope that we can be reunited once I am rich.

My big girl job. My big girl purse.

Shit white girls say. Omg stop. Are you twelve? Problems.

^ Me when someone at the office asks which sport I play…I work with NCAA athletes. I’m not sure if I should be honored that I can pass as an athlete or offended that they think I’m an undergrad. Problems.
