I know I haven't updated my journal since before my summer semester started, but better late to catch up than never. Everything's basically a big blur, so I'll just put what I can remember.

All semester I've been waiting to get my financial aid, and after jumping thru so many hoops I'm finally getting it... after the semester's over! But, it'll be nice staring a semester with money in my pocket for a change ($600 is NOTHING to sneeze at!) and will still receive my FAFSA during the regular semesters.
And it will help what with no jobs really taking me. It seems like all jobs around me require me to have a license, and I don't have mine. So I called my dad and left a message saying I need to finally learn. I'll talk to him when, and if, he ever calls me back. He might be a bit busy with my youngest step-sisters wedding coming up.

Anyway....giving up my bedroom was a bit hard, but I've adapted. I sleep on the couch at night, one blanket below me, a comforter on top of me (sometimes I used the smaller blanket when it gets to hot) and two big pillow my grandma bought to replace me old worn out pillows.
To kind of 'escape' at times I would stay after my class on campus in the designated 'quiet area'.
The music history class was EPIC though! We delved all the way back to the days of Beethoven all the way up to right before the 80's. Since it was such a short class, being the summer and all, we really had to cram things in, so we couldn't learn as easily as a regular semester class is. Heck, I even learned my professor is a die-hard KISS fan JUST LIKE ME! (but he's so die-hard that he refuses to see anything but the original line-up.) Not to mention I got out of the class with a 93% grade (quizzes are hard...)

Having a house with 9 people has been a bit rough though. I try my best not to start fights and to just stay out of them, but sometimes it's hard. With a 14-year old video game addict that's taller and more fit than me in the kitchen almost 24/7 (that's where we set up his video game area) it can be hard, especially when he gets angry. He shouts, screams, and will take his anger out on anyone. Luckily, my uncle, who already lived here, set him straight and he's gotten better. The other cousins have their moments, but the MVP of anger issues is my uncle! Whether he's yelling at my cousins (both his kids and and my aunts kids) or talking trash about me, or just talking about how much life sucks, it's like he never stops. Granted, he has his good moments, and whenever I help him out he keeps his mouth closed about bad things about me. But sometimes his good moments can't outweigh his bad moments.

And he he had a HUUUUUUGE bad moment yesterday because;

He and my aunt (his sister) got in a huge fight all over my grandmother borrowing my aunts care car. My grandma's car is having an issue and my uncle's trying to fix it. They just needed to borrow my aunt's car to take a toolbox back to an auto-part store, and when my aunt said they needed to hurry up as she needed her car, my uncle EXPLODED! They got into a huge argument which led to my aunt storming down the hall and slamming the door to my old room closed and my uncle shouting at everyone who passed by and refusing to go with my grandmother to the auto-parts store to return a tool box to get her license back (it's some kind of collateral thing.) My oldest cousin and I go with my grandma to drop it off and we return home to my uncle still having his overgrown tantrum.
He then gets into an argument with my grandma, both in conversation and thru iPad messages, which carried on late into the night.

Just to sum it up, he basically told my grandma to go f*ck herself and my grandmother is seriously considering kicking him out.

The issue for me was that I was basically caught in the crossfire. As the argument went on, I tried my best to stay out of it, but when my uncle brought it up to my grandma after we came back, he turned to me and made me vouch for him on who started the argument. I had to say my aunt did it, and not because it was her. Had I said 'no' the situation would've gotten worse, and I didn't think it was possible.

My youngest cousin (my uncles son) even said to me, after my grandmother and uncle continued the argument outside "when my dad asks you something, just say 'yes' or it'll get worse." I remember asking my cousins "Is this what it's like every day when I'm at school?" And they all basically said "yes."

After things died down and I finally settle down with my laptop, ready to find a way of escaping, my other uncle comes out of his and my aunts room/my old room. He says he and my aunt were talking and they agreed to pay for my WoW account while they're here. I ask him what they want in return and he says "we took your room dude! You deserve something in return." I thanked him and even hugged him, both him and my grandma laughing a bit and he sets up my Battle.net account to swipe his credit card and will pay for it for an indefinite amount of time. After he turns in, my grandmother told me the REAL motive for him doing this was because he knew I didn't have anywhere to escape when the argument/fight went on as they have my room. I'm grateful though and will gladly play WoW every day of my break. But now I don't have to do it to 'get my money's worth' like I usually do when I pay for it, and there is no dreaded day when the subscription ends.

Anyway, my uncle has taken his kids to the lake today to ride his friends jet-skis, my aunt and other uncle are at work, and my grandpa is... somewhere.... so with just 4 of us here, I'm gonna kick back and relax with some WoW/DA/etc.

So I got another semester out the window, but that doesn't mean everything will be easygoing or the next 3-4 weeks.

My Aunt T and Uncle Matt will be moving in with my two cousins soon because their landlord raised their rent to a price they can't afford. So I have to give up my bedroom for them (a married couple need to have their own room!) Since the uncle I already live with has a bunk bed in his bedroom, my cousins will be sleeping in there.

Since we already have a lot of stuff, and with more people moving in with their stuff, we're gonna rent a public storage space so we can clear some room so this house won't be so packed. We're already planning of getting rid of my bed and the living room couch, which will both be replaced with my aunt and Uncles bed and their couch. Luckily, the new couch we're getting has a pull-out bed for me to sleep on once I give up my room.

While this semester may be over, I have a summer class coming up towards the end of June, but it seems they changed a lot of terms for financial aid, so I gotta jump thru a bunch of hoops to get it all over again. Until then, I'm looking for a job so I can help out. I've submitted two forms for two different jobs on my college campus. I already go there all the time, so there wouldn't exactly be a rush to get there and get things done. I could do my homework before/after my shifts without having to rush back and forth everywhere. But I'm also looking for jobs in my general area because it would also be easy having a job so close to home.

Before all this happens, though, I've finally swallowed my pride and have asked my dad to loan me some money to help out until I get a job and/or financial aid. After my mother died my sister and I received a check each month from her social security, but I never saw a cent of until I moved in here, but they stopped coming when I turned 18. My dad said he has them saved, but the uncle I already lives with says not to count on it. IDK whether or not I'm gonna confront my dad on this when asking for the money. But I did promise I would pay him back whatever he loans me. How much I will ask for/get will be determined. Hopefully it'll be enough to rent a storage space as well as get groceries. While I'm looking for a job, my grandmother said she'll pay for my cell phone to stay on so I won't worry about losing my number in case I get a call back.

When all this came down on me I was a bit pissed. I thought I'd be going without sleep, because my cousins will be on summer vacation soon, so they would be up all night even when I get a job/have classes the next day. But my grandmother said it won't be like that at all. We're gonna clear out the old computer area for my teenage cousin to put his TV screen and Xbox there. He'll have headphones so the most I'll hear is him talking. Besides, I stay up late myself when I'm on vacation. I could plug my Xbox into the living room TV so I could play there. We have a DVR so I could just record shows I might miss while my cousins have the TV/while I play.

Plus, I just have to realize that family is family. Like I always say "when the chips are down, they're all you've got." So what I have to give up my room? I'll still have a place to sleep and I'll still have most of my stuff.  Plus my Aunt T and Uncle Matt will help with the bills around the house, so that's a huge weight off my grandparents backs for a while, until my Aunt and Uncle save up enough money for a new house. 

I'm rambling now, and I feel like I'm a bit out of order in my writing, so I just need to end this off here.
I'll keep you guys updated.

Tyrone Pines OC description by fanfics4ever
Tyrone Pines OC description
Now presenting; Annabel's little brother Tyrone! He now has an OC description, so others will know about him not just by looks, but by personality as well!

This pic was drawn by :iconkujarojotu: right here kujarojotu.deviantart.com/art/… so all credit goes to him for the new OC pictures. Thanks dude!

Annabel Pines OC description 2 by fanfics4ever
Annabel Pines OC description 2
Now that I've created more OCs for the next generations of Gravity Falls, I figured I'd make descriptions for all of them, and started with the one who started it all. Also, since we know more characters, I figured I needed to add more family members to her description.

This pic was drawn by :iconkujarojotu: right here kujarojotu.deviantart.com/art/… so all credit goes to him for the new OC pictures. Thanks dude!

(I guessed Mabelline may be Mabel's real name, so that's how Annabel got her middle name. But she gets her first name from her maternal grandmother to carry on her memory.)

(Yes, I know it appears that Annabel is wearing a skirt, but that's how :iconkujarojotu: drew it, and I'm happy for all his help!)

Figured I might as well upload the whole story instead of just one day at a time.

So, my cousins came over for the week, which always helps my uncle. The first few days I just played WoW, watched TV, snacked and did a bit of homework.

But on Tuesday I finally did what I wanted to do since my last Spring Break; I went to San Francisco!
I took a bus to BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit, a local subway system) and I took that to one of the stops in San Francisco. I grabbed a map to figure out it was 10 stops away with a bit of help from a woman who takes BART often.
With the limited amount of money I didn't get to do much, but I was able to take a rail-car to Joe's Crab Shack, of which I had a coupon for $7 off a $25 order, which lowered my surf-n-turf platter down to around $21, with a 15% tip.
I then went to Pier 39 and walked around a bit, spent $5 to go thru a mirror maze, which is an unlimited amount of times so long as you keep your gloves on. I went thru it 3 times, my 3rd time I got so lost that I kept making my way to the entrance by accident. I finally just had to GET OUT after that.
I took a few pictures with my iPad, which is the main reason I didn't go last time, as I didn't want it to get stolen. I then went back to BART, took it back my hometown, then took my bus home.
I was gonna meet my dad that night, but I was so exhausted that after talking with my grandma and my cousins for a bit I passed OUT!

I didn't do much for the rest of this week, but I did get my homework finished up before the week was out.

A great thing though, yesterday I got my 2nd FAFSA check, then went and put it in on my debit card at the bank. I then went to my cousins first basketball game of the season. His team won by 18 points so my aunt invited us (me, my uncle, my grandma, and my two other cousins) to celebrate. Either Fuddruckers' menu has changed since I was 16, or I just never knew the whole menu when I was younger because they had a LOT. And how could I pass up a chili-cheese burger? But, when we wanted to go home, my uncle being the one who goes out so little, wanted to go everywhere in that shopping district, to my grandmothers distaste. By the time we got home we barely got my cousins pictures printed out. Also, we were able to go grocery shopping to get me some stuff for this weeks as well as some steak for whenever. My uncle, hearing that I got money of course asked me for $100 for his sons bike tubes. I was told he would pay me back on the 1st of next month, and I am holding him to that!

Today almost sucked though, because I had a sharp pain in my back on the right side last night. With my cousins over, I have to wait until the middle of the night just to use the bathroom in peace!

So, I woke up around noon, and answered my dads text he had sent a half-hour previously on if I needed a ride. [My iPad doesn't make a noise when I receive a text, which is a blessing in disguise if I ever get a text in the middle of a class.] My dad said it was too late as he was already home. You see, my dad being the coward he is won't come near my grandmothers house unless he's "loosened up" by a couple beers. Why? Because he's afraid of my uncle and grandfather. I was able to get a ride, though, even though it pissed my grandfather off. He was already angry because my uncles Ex-wife broke the deal she has with him and my cousins had to go home WAY too early. Since we have to leave quick, I forget the card I got for him, which I wanted my sister to sign for his 70th birthday tomorrow, but I told her to at least give him a call to say happy birthday.

Anyway, I made it, saw a lot of my family and enjoyed Easter with them. Even met some of my Step-moms' relatives and realized I'm not the only person who knows about Heavy Metal and its' great artists when I saw their Motorhead shirt. I also caught up with one of my cousins, played with my nieces, hid eggs for them, and ate to my fill. This time though, I didn't drink much soda and didn't immediately pass out after eating to enjoy more time.

The party starts winding down, there are barely any leftovers and after a lot of relatives have left my dad gives me a ride home. We agree to stay in touch and I tell him I will try to either start up my old phone or get new one.
I see that my grandmother hasn't left yet and chat with her, taking note to avoid my uncle, who always gets bummed out when his kids are gone.

Well, Spring Break is unfortunately over. Since my grandfathers' birthday is tomorrow, I'll try to get him something on my way home tomorrow to make up for not getting all my cousins and my sister to sign the card I got for him. But for now I'm just gonna calm down and get ready to fall back into the status quo of my life.
