The first few weeks of school, K didn't want to study. Once the bad grades started rolling in, she realized maybe she needed a little help. We studying our asses off for several weeks. Each test would come in and she would still barely squeak by with a C or even still, sometimes an F. She stopped studying with me because she felt like she didn't need to, I guess. I checked her grades tonight because her last exam is tomorrow. What do I see? An F on a Math test last week. An F on a test she said she didn't need my help studying for.
So, I asked her, do you need help studying for your exam? Nope. Her reply was NOPE. I called my Mom pissed off. Mom told me to ask her again. I did. I got another nope. WTF? It's elementary math for fuck sake! The only thing she has to do with her life right now is STUDY! We pay the bills. We provide shelter, food, and family time. The only fucking thing we ask is to study and get good grades.
She's only getting one more chance. One more semester. If she acts like a bitch this next semester, we're cutting her off. She's not down here for shelter. She's down here to get a degree. She just needs to swallow her pride and get some shit done.
I'm so sick of being the "mean older sister" who only wants to make her "study". I wish she would realize how many other people would LOVE a chance to get a degree without the worries of bills and money, especially if they have a child.
