Incompatibility Issues…

So, it seems that my parents are separating. This has all happened in 48 hours. I’m not sure whether this is a good thing or not, but it will certainly do the rest of the world a favour. Sometimes I thought they think they might shrivel up and die if they weren’t able to blame the ills of the rest of the world on each other. I stopped listening to them arguing and complaining about each other around 10 years ago. Now, I just don’t care.

It’s not always as bad as it is now but it’s always been there. I’m 28 and can’t ever remember them being happily married. I don’t know why they didn’t do it sooner. At this very moment it’s weird because we are all still in the same house.

On a selfish point, this all kinda leaves me high and dry. I have 6 months of uni left and they have mentioned selling the house. I moved out about 4 years back and had to move back again about 18 months ago because my own housing contract ran out, the guys I was living with and I had had enough of living together (mostly due to the immeasurable pressure of living with someone with a mental illness) and I couldn’t afford to live alone. I now can’t afford to move back out as my student loan won’t cover it (I have a reduced loan as I live my parents – catch 22).

Sure, they probably won’t sell the house before the end of uni and my mum says I can live with her when she moves out (my dad is probably staying here until the sale), but given the circumstances, I don’t really want to live with either of them.

Guess I’ll just have to stick it out until the end of my degree…

Times, they are a-changin’.
