If you're keeping up, I'm not very good at posting regularly.
Real life gets in the way, man.
Last week, it was the realest of life: taxes.
In an effort to complete my FAFSA for school in the fall (WHAT),
I realized that I needed my tax return.
Which meant i needed to do my taxes.
Mother suggested that I just get it done and over with right then.
I laughed because I thought she was kidding.
Aren't there people to do that for me?
But I put on my adult hat and psyched myself up--
and whined the entire time.
(And wined the entire time.)
In all actuality, TurboTax is a Godsend
and made it pretty easy.
But when you have 4 W-2s for the 2013 tax year,
everything is stupid.
If there were a contest for number of jobs held in one year,
I would win.
If there were a contest for longevity at one job,
I would lose miserably.
I don't want to talk about it.
What made it even more difficult was the knowledge that
most of my clients at work haven't filed their taxes for the past 5+ years
simply because they don't want their money taken away.
And those who do file, usually end up getting refunds of $2000+.
Let's do the math:
~$454/week in unemployment
~$347/month in food stamps
~$2000/year in tax refund
ME BEING SO DONE WITH THEM.
Next year, instead of filing taxes,
I'm filing bankruptcy.
Apparently, it's the new get-rich-quick scheme.
