Well…I made it.
Life is sucking for me pretty bad right now.
I left Ft. Wayne after hanging out with my boy Dean, ridin’ around in his new Mustang drop top after smokin’ a few bowls.
I say goodbye, and head out on the road. Now the sky was cloudy and it rained pretty hard in spots, but the ride was pretty damn good for the most part…Until I had 20 miles left to ride.
Somehow, my serpentine fan belt slipped completely of its gears, I am almost to this miserable fucking school, and this happens. Needless to say, I have to pull over in the middle of Bum Fuck Egypt, Indiana, and my car is undrivable. I was given the greenlight to panic.
It’s times like this when it’s good to have best friends.
If it weren’t for the fact that my best friend also goes to Indiana University, I would still be sitting there waiting to be lynched like it was 1954 instead of 2004.
In my worry, I saw a Roadside Assistance number on the window, so I call it and get a wrecker to come out. Expensive, damnit.
Luckily, Erick came and met me at the dealership where they took my car. He put my most valuable shit in my car and off to Bloomington we went.
Now I am hoping against hope that it was just the belt and nothing else. That’s gonna run me about $100, but I am so afraid that there wwas a true cause for my belt to slip, and I can only imagine how much that shit is gonna cost.
I hate asking my mother for money, but she really came through for me. She said that she would break into her savings to help out. God, I love her.
Needless to say, I have had a long day. I can’t set my computer in my room ’till tomorrow, because the ethernet cord I need is in a building I can’t get to until tomorrow. Fuck.
I’m gonna go and set up as best I can, and then we’ll see what’s what.

Use one of those sometime to pity me in my moments of hell…lol.
I need a shower and a change of clothes. Fuckin’ A.
