Serious Frustration Lies Ahead- Long
I'm so frustrated right now. I just found a sub-leaser for my apartment, bc I was looking at getting a two bedroom with a friend as a roommate, so I'm in between places, when I found this internship and have been talking to the Owner for about a week and a half now, so I put the new apt on hold.. which is good because I just got fired from work(looooooong story), and happen to be staying at my moms, whose now ticked because I'm probably going to be here longer than the planned couple of weeks... (at 3 weeks and counting now because things got complicated with one apartment complex.. had to find a new one to look at...) So now... with this internship I'm supposed to send the lady who decides if they even want me down there a video tomorrow of me riding both English and Western. But here's the kicker. I don't have a horse. I had one lined up, then the owner fell off the face of the earth... Then my friend came in with her Gorgeous morgan gelding who had a tear in his pastern, was on pasture rest, been doing great in rehab... who is lame again as of tonight... so, horse options... GONE.
Not to mention, (parents are divorced) My father is completely supportive of my decision to do an internship at this farm instead of collect student loan debt, and do something I really really want to do. But my mother on the other hand doesn't see how these people are benefiting from teaching me, and is convinced that "some crazy Cubans are going to kidnap you, and take you to Cuba to be a s** slave..." (her words not mine...) because, there is no stall cleaning or anything else involved.. but they pay for housing and such, all I have to pay is my food bill (and regular bills like cell phone, car payment etc.) Basically she thinks these people have to benefit majorly from this or its to good to be true.
I'm just way frustrated... Anyone want to make me feel better? Lol Maybe a way to explain to my mom this whole working student/internship deal-y? Or maybe point out where the "Crazy Cubans" are hiding in the scheme to kidnap me?
For reference its Valhalla Farms in Wellborn, Florida
