Going Out, Moving Out [I need your help Vutales]

Tagged as: I feel like TarTar would know exactly what I should do, or PirPir, the older group basically.

Yo whadduppppp?

I've been doing ok I guess. In the process of doing my midterms, so majority of my time is dedicated to the books and sleeping in the library.
Actually, to be more specific, I'm about to have my last midterm in about an hour and a half so really I should be doing some last minute cramming instead of writing this.

Still haven't really been going out all that much. However last Friday I went to go see Downlink, Funtcase b2b Cookie Monsta & Butch Clancy (for all you dubstep/bass music fans here) and holy shit man lol.
My first time going downtown (other than for school) since like winter break and it was such a MASSIVE show!
Every song I wanted to hear live was basically played out that night and the fact that I got to see Funtcase & Cookie do a back-to-back set (I always figured I'd have to go to like a massive like EDC to see that) was truly a dream come true.
At one point, Butch Clancy came from backstage and walked over to me and handed me this big ass bottle of Smirnoff (like the 1.75L bottles) and was just like "Share & enjoy dat shit man." So I thanked him and took a shot with him cuz I'm on that gentlemen shit. Then I drank as much as my throat could take and passed the bottle to some girl behind me. The bottle probably came back to me like 4 more times after that so I was pretty drunk to say the least,
Then they were handing out some coke & Jack mixed drinks from the stage. This girl beside me got one & I was like "fuck" but then she was like "lol let's share." So we did.
Got home at like 5am, smoked weed until 7am then passed out.

Here's a pic from that night:

Moving out.
It's seriously something I want to do, and have wanted to do for a loooong time now. Everyday the urge gets stronger too. See, my mom said before I enrolled in college that if I stayed in school, I wouldn't have to pay rent.
Fast forward to the beginning of this semester she changed it and said I had to pay rent starting this July. The cost? $200 per month. In a general sense, that's fucking cheap as hell but if you closely examine the deal you'll see that it's fucking horseshit.
On top of the rent fee, apparently my older sister and her 3 kids (2 high schoolers, 1 baby) is moving into the house too. That being said, I'm paying $200/month for less than a fraction of my current living space.
I lose the right to play my music which, as a DJ is essential.
I can't just buy food for myself, any groceries I buy will have to shared with the family.
The Internet is fucking shit at my house right now (worse than the school's public WiFi) & there's no chance for an upgrade unless I pay the bill myself. If I do that, the rest of the family gets a free ride (cuz no one wants to put money forward)
Sometime after July (I'm assuming whenever she's zapped up all my brother & I's money) my mom will be packing up and moving back to the Caribbean. When that happen it'll be up to my sister, my older brother & me to handle the house. The general rules I listed above still stand, and my share of the rent would probably go up.

Smells like teen spirit bullshit now huh?
I'd rather live in a shitty student apartment with heating and wifi provided and pay like $500/month than live under these conditions.
Doesn't help that I hate my sister's kids too lol.

So yeah, any attempt to talk this over with my mom is ignored, mostly because a) she knows if I found a place, I'll actually leave that night (ok maybe not that night but as soon as I can y'know) b) if I leave she won't get my money which she "desperately" needs.
If she actually wanted to fucking upgrade my house (we don't have cable OR high-speed Internet) with the collected rent money I'd be more open to coping, but this is just me getting shafted imo.

my sorta rough sketch plan of action


to work all summer for like the next 2 years and save the earnings to put towards advance rent payments ( I already have like $1,000 saved)
hopefully find a place I like and check when I could move in
start the deadly work/school combo just to sustain myself for at least another year
I forgot what I was gonna type after this, got distracted by a text but you get the idea. Keep in mind that I'm not even throwing figures around yet, and there's a ton of variables in the equation but yea
Also I know the playing music trade-off is probably something I won't be able to have after all this regardless of how I go about this, but I'd rather be restricted under someone else's rules than in my own fucking house where I have a weekly radio show+podcast to run in this case y'know?

So I turn to you Vutales, even though you guys aren't really in my shoes I'd like to hear what you think about all this shit (like what do you think about the arrangement, what do you think I should do etc..) cuz at a time like this, you're supposed to talk to your parents but...obviously that isn't working atm.

lol this blog was supposed to be like 1 paragraph of me saying hi too.

Wait, so does she know you have plans of moving out? Or are you just going to dip once you found a place?

Either way, I would have left ages ago.. but seeing your financial restrictions and your plan to work + school ... it will be fairly hard, you're going to have to do early classes then work afternoon shifts... it'll be really tiring.

But seeing as you need two summers to collect the advance payment money, wouldn't you be almost done with school? Like 1 year left if I recall the quebec system correctly...

So yeah, I would move out if I didn't like the place I lived... also ask around, your friends might be able to keep an eye out for places.

And you have a show? :O

Yeah, actually you're right. I'd be just finishing up my 3-year program haha I totally forgot that.
My mom knows I intend on moving out, and she knows I'm working on getting a plan together. She just doesn't support it in anyway so I don't really talk to her about it much.

& yea I have a weekly radio show on a station called Noize.Fm. It's literally just me playing music for an hour and drinking a beer or 5. It's every Thursday night from 10pm-11pm EST and yeah..
