They only gave me $16 a month. Apparently the state wants me to be anorexic.

I know a scumbag loser who used to sell $200 of his food stamps to some crooked store owner for a hundred dollars and some change. People are fucked and always find ways to scam the system

They didn't take into account my credit card and student loan bills in the application. That's 40% of my paycheck.

but I'll take whatever they give me.

I have a very stupid feeling of shame. Shame to ask for help from the government when I'm "Mexican". Goddammit. I shouldn't feel this way. (except financial aid. I'll take all of that)

Does it allow you to buy alcohol too?

I got a letter yesterday and they upped my food stamps from $16 to $109. I imagine it's because I replied to this topic.

That's a nice raise if I ever saw one!

I got accepted for the BOG waiver fee for school. If I decided I really want to go back. I wanted to. Now I'm being lazy. =/

there are websites. I'd link you to one, but they're county specific. some allow for online applications and some don't.

it took me a while to find the one for Sonoma County.

It stands for Board of Governor and it's a fee waiver. It waves tuition and sometimes books when purchased at the school bookstore.

I used the BOG in community college. didn't pay for books though.

I got a letter saying they're going to call for the phone interview for my food stamps on monday between 12:30 and 5:00. that's good, except that I work on monday from 10:30 to 3:45. I don't know what to do.

I could try just telling my managers that I'm expecting a phone interview and I need to take my break whenever they call, but that's not very professional. then there's the chance that they'll actually call in the 75 minutes when I'm not working.

damn it.

I honestly don't see that as a problem. It's not "not professional". This is your life/health. It's important. They should understand. Knowing the state, they'll wait until the last minute to call you anyways, and it won't be a problem.

go to school, you lazy fuck!

I know. I should. But, I'm only going in hopes that I get accepted to transfer to Cal Poly SLO. And for Cal Poly's Architecture program, it's VERY difficult to get in. If I don't get in, I'll feel like I wasted my time. I've already got an AA in Architecture. So going to JC isn't really an option. I just want my BS degree if I can't work right now. Annnnd, I prefer not to leave NorCal. I don't feel like I would fit in at Cal Berkeley either.

I know SLO isn't NorCal, but it's only 3 +/- hours from SJ. So it's not horrible. I'm scared of Los Angeles. Too many people.

It's okay. Most people in LA are forgettable anyway. It's like they're not even there.

I don't remember, do you like Norm MacDonald? He's playing at the SJ Improv on June 3rd. May have already mentioned it. You Bay Area boardies are so fucking hard to get a hold of.

You didn't tell me. Norm McDonald is okay. I don't have money to go.

The SJ Improv is pretty cool. I liked when I worked across the street from there, because parking was free for me, since I had a monthly pass. LOL!

We saw Doug Stanhope there a couple months ago. Honestly, the Improv was too fancy for him. It didn't fit his character.

There are always a few junkie kids hanging out in front of the Ralph's by my house, offering to buy people groceries for 50% of the price in exchange for the cash. I actually wound up doing it once cus the kid looked so dope-sick, I felt bad for him..
