The Universe is trying my patience…

The Universe is trying my patience…

Seriously.

For the last 3 months I have been working my ass off to get financing for going back to school, I have jumped through all the hoops, I have done the eons of paperwork with due diligence.

timetable

I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel…it’s dim, but it’s there. I guess it is good practice for school, but I just want to be IN school…learning, building, doing it!!! Tonight I had to fill out the real application for financing, this will be the do or die form, the one that will make them decide yes or no as to my worthiness to spend their money to brighten my future.

Thank goodness I know how to express myself in writing. I might have a wee bit better of a chance that way.

Wish me luck.

The other fun thing that is going on right now is that my mortgage is up for renewal.

Ya…I know.

I am such a chicken shit when it comes to doing things like that. I procrastinate. Well this time I decided there would be none of that, I went to my mortgage broker, she gave me all the ammo I needed and I was ready to go.

I called, I told him what I wanted for a rate…and he gave it to me. Just like that. I was like…WHAT???

I am guessing that a lot of people just settle for the rate that they offer you, when all you have to do is a little research, and ask. Just ask for a better rate.

That was the easy part.

The hard part was printing the damn password encrypted form that I had to sign…two computers, a printer and an hour later I finally get the fricken thing printed…now I have to fax it to him…gah. Nothing is ever just easy.

And it was hot today…like 31° Celsius hot…

We are pansies here, we don’t do heat or cold to any extreme. Not that I am complaining at all, but my poor little hanging tomato looked like it had barely survived a nuclear attack when I finally got around to watering it tonight.

Actually that is kind of how I felt by the time I got home from work.

Add paperwork.

It’s all smooth sailing from here though, by the end of the week I hope to have everything tied up with the schooling application and my mortgage will just carry on as usual from tomorrow on.

Sometimes NOT procrastinating and just getting shit done is the way to go. I mean who needs the added worry of knowing you have to do something but you just can’t bring yourself to do it right? It never accomplishes anything.

So here is to a paperwork free August…my non-procrastinating ass is gonna have it all done by then.

Now maybe I can keep up to the watering :)

Happy Wednesday loves…xoxo

    Your mortgage “goes up for renewal?” What is that? We don’t have that in California…man what happens if you lost a job or your good credit got trashed? Would they kick you out of your house???

      It means that the five year agreement I had is over, and you have to renegotiate your rate, I wouldn’t have to get a new mortgage unless I changed banks, and at this point I would then be fucked. :) It’s all good though…

    I know exactly what you’re going through (I think!). I tend to see applying for things or asserting my rights as being confrontational and due to that nasty Canadian gene mutation caused by eating too much bacon, doughnuts, and tourtière, I must avoid confrontation at all costs. I feel for you, kid, but keep plugging… it will be worth it in the end!
