I have a lot of things to do and a lot of stress on my mind:
~Pack all of my stuff
~Find an affordable storage space and move said stuff into it
~Clean old apartment
~Move into friend's apartment where I will be renting a futon while living out of a footlocker and suitcases.
~Update and fine tune my resume and cover letters with a resume coach
~Look for work... real work not some shitty cashier job
~Call the temp agencies
~Contact the VA regarding Chapter 35 education funds
~Contact either UCSC or UCSJ regarding a BS in Bio Science
~Find a counselor to counsel me for free because everyone is sick of me complaining and venting and I have no medical insurance
~Get my emotions under control
~Sell my couch and kitchen table (yes it has come to that)
~Lose about 20 to 30 lbs because I am fat, unhealthy and unattractive.

Did I mention I really hate my life right now?

Dear Universe.....

Dear Universe;

FUCK YOU! Fuck you sideways with a rusty chainsaw.

For those of you who haven't heard.... I was fired by HR today. All of my managers and supervisors were behind me and did not want to see me let go for a menial little error of judgment. HR however doesn't give a shit.

Sincerely Pissed Off;

Miss Postmortem


Well, my attempt to get my taxes done today was a bust. I need to get a new 1099 from my ex-employer stating the correct amount paid to me and what was paid to the lawyer (since they cut them a cheque separately).

Other things that didn't go as planned. I cannot write off my medical expenses because I fall just short of the required amount calculated based on my income. I am requesting a statement from my chiropractor showing how much I paid him because I may have forgotten one or two payments in my paperwork. If I would have waited until January 1st 2009 to pay my medical insurance for January instead of December 30th 2008 I would have been within the range. Poo!

At the time of my appointment I couldn't claim my moving expenses because I fell short .7 miles of the 50 mile minimum. However, when I drew up the Google Map again and put the route I actually drove (280 instead of 101) I got 50.5 miles. Squee! I just need to talk to the accountant about what expenses are deductible for that.

I forgot to ask her about my state licenses but I am sure I can write those off too. I can also write off the $246.00 I had to pay to the DMV for my car renewal.

All in all. I have a W-2 and two 1099s to file as well as a few deductions. This is why I am not doing my taxes this year. It is all a big headache.
