Mom shit (I’m on mobile else it’s be a read more)
Ok. Tomorrow I talk to the mom about my student loans.
Here’s the deal my darling tumblr friends. I went to Kean University for 5 semesters, at $11k a semester. Thanks to grants and scholarships, my family had to pay about $5k a semester and probably $1k/semester was out of pocket, the rest was loans. My mom and my dad said they would cover my student loans and i wouldn’t have to pay for it. This MONUMENTALLY affected my decision to go to a 4 year college, as I was planning to go a local community college for 2 years (4 semesters) for free (thanks to grants and scholarships) and go from there. This decision was also pushed on me by my mom who said that community college was for losers and dropouts and it’s completely unrespected and a waste of my time. So I went to Kean.
I hated it by the end.
Completely disillusioned, hating my major, losing my lifelong love of my instrument and performing at all, I left Kean, went to the aforementioned community college for a semester, and decided I was done with school, period.
Then my mom drops that I have to start paying my loans back. Doesn’t give a number, but says that if I pay $200/month then that would cover my phone bill and loans and it’ll eventually get paid off. I pay $300 for 4 months (as long as I have a good paying job). The job was temporary, I take a trip to Israel to visit my boyfriends family, and I come back broke and jobless.
She then scolds me for wasting all my money and lamenting her parenting skills that I could be so inadequately prepared for anything. Afterwords, when I ask for a number to pay back, she tells me she used some of the student loan for paying for the family and the like. I say that that’s fine, I just need a number.
That is actually totally NOT fine. That is illegal to use student loans in a students name (that is not you) for costs that do not relate to the student.
She gives me a number of $15k, and says there are two loans, one larger than the other, and the second one, I “don’t have to worry about.”
After consulting several friends and my dad, I come to these conclusions.
A) She is bullshitting me about the cost of the first loan. My father and mother (divorced) have an agreement that each pays for an alternating semester. My dad paid falls and my mom paid springs. I went to Kean for 3 falls for a grand total of $11k in loans that my dad is paying off because that was the agreement we made. I went for 2 springs. Averaging about $3.3k a semester in loans, there at least $7,000 unaccounted for.
B) There are 2 loans. The second was undisclosed, however I had presumed that she was giving me the amount that only covered my student loans, as why would I need to pay for her kids (who for the most part, treat me like shit and even if they were angels, I can’t pay for them. It’s not my responsibility). I do not know which loan is the “smaller amount”. So there is at least $7,000+$???? unaccounted for.
C) These loans are in MY name. I would presume if things go badly and my mom gets mad and refuses to pay, there is a chance this could completely ruin my credit score. This means no credit card, no car, no advanced phone plan, no house, etc. This is a stretch, but is till a possibility.
So, it was suggested to ask her for an itemized list of everything that the loan payed for. I had planned today to have a good talk with her after seeing Frozen. However my aforementioned siblings wouldn’t leave. I was first dragged upstairs after saying I had to talk to mom to see my brothers newest minecraft addiction, then talk to jack, then bubba got ice cream and sat and kept pulling my hair after repeated times telling him to stop, miranda was waiting for a party and riling the kids up, and Emma was complaining about her hair so of course there isn’t a moment to talk to mom who was, as always, so exhausted she could barely think. Right before I left I gathered the courage to ask “Can you make an itemized list of what the loans payed for?” Her response was a confused look and “Um sure, there really isn’t anything to list but ok…”
That was it. I then went home.
Tomorrow was our planned day to spend the day figuring this out. I am starting a new job tomorrow at 5, and I’m going to a therapist and a psychiatrist from 10-12. So there is a 4 hour window for real progeess. She told me that was fine and she was taking the day off so we could get this done. However she then tells me to come over to her job site tomorrow when I get out of the doctors office and well go home. Her work for a friend is more important than a serious monetary issue and the financial well being of her eldest daughter. And knowing her if I get there at 1 we won’t leave until 2 or 3 then I have to leave at 4 to get ready for work. And an hour is not enough time to get through the bullshit and the lies and the coverups. Sai is coming with me tomorrow so hopefully that will spur her into legitimate action. If I don’t say much or am too intimidated to say these things to her face, he certainly won’t be and it will completely catch her off guard.
I hope she doesn’t damn him and our relationship in front of the whole family. I hope that this will be easy, and we can figure out exactly how much MY student loans are. I hope that I won’t cry too much at the therapist tomorrow when I tell her that my mom is the reason I have so many problems. I hope I am strong enough to tell my mom that this is the last straw if she doesn’t cooperate.
