When you’re a kid it isn’t unusual to hear that you’re not old enough for something.  Why is that?  Well, children can sometimes be in too much of a hurry to grow up.  There is a certain innocence and naivety that children have before they gain life experience and get stressed out. They’ll lose that soon enough, so it’s up to parents to help them enjoy childhood and not worry about “grown up things.” I get that. Strangely, tho, I’m now starting to hear comments about being “too old” for X, albeit just from one friend in particular. (more…)

Income Tax Return?

It’s that time of year again, so like everyone else, I’ve been thinking about income tax.  What kind of a fucked up system is this anyway??  Imagine this scenario if you will.  Your work pays you throughout the year, but at the end of the year, they ask for some of it back.  You’d be like, “oh, fuck no!”

That’s what most of us do, tho.  We pay the government all year long, and then once a year we ask for some of it back.  No wonder their budget is fucked up.

(I’m still going to send in my return tho.  Sure, the system is screwy, but if I can get some money, then why not?)
