for the matter she pointed out how I do stuff for other people and stuff in general that doesn't bring in any money (even if I do enjoy it) then complained I never tell her what I do in my spare time.. :: h eaddesk:: um.. ya mother.. I don't, because everytime I do tell you I'm enjoying something, you tell me "well how much do you earn for it?/what do you get out of it?" and apparently you dont' accept "nothing/enjoyment" as an answer to those questions... so why bother saying ANYTHING about what I do?
Plus the whole "you're hanging around the net chatting to people, do you even KNOW who they are?" Why yes! Actually.. I do! Does she?
Suffice to say I got very pissed, because she was pretty much "my PoV is right.....yours isn't" and I can't let her insult my friends in the ways she did. some of those people I cherish really deeply because of a variety of things they've done for me when I get those difficult life moments.
In the end for about an hour or so I was pretty much miffed at her in ways unimaginable (not to mention that killed my writing streak... was working on 4 posts for the tournament... )
but she came in and apologized..., and we talked it over, I explained it to her that the writing stuff I do is actually useful to me not just for enjoyment purposes, but you don't get published or anywhere else if your skills suck... plain and simple! You can't just go get a job right away, you have to look for it, and you aren't good at it right away either! yet she thinks I gotta be.
Like when I got my CELTA certificate, what'd she do? "why don't you have a job with it yet?" HELLO?! I just got the damn thing! Hnnngg :: tugs at hair::
So hopefully she understands better now...
