I apologize for not getting the Dine-Out post up yet but rest assured, I'll get to it I promise! Today I wanted to give you another update on my situation, it's a bit of a long story and it's also very... triggering I guess. If you're a sensitive person, especially towards animals, you might find yourself very emotional after this post.
If you haven't been following along with my updates, then you can probably just skip to the end of this post where I have an exciting announcement and bonus for you lovelies!
Alright, so from where we left off last time, Koji was staying with me at our new place with the land lady's permission. Everything was going fine, we were waiting for a response from a good friend of my mom's to see if we could leave him at her place. While I was in class, I got a wave of phone calls from my sister. I texted her back saying I was in class, and she responded telling me that it was urgent I take her call.
A little bit nervous I went outside and took her call. There was fierce yelling and barking going on in the background and her voice was shaking. She told me my mom's brother was there and he was trying to take Koji away. I told her to give him the phone and I proceeded to ask him what the actual fuck he thought he was doing. He told me that I wasn't allowed to have Koji at this new house and that he was taking him to the SPCA. I told him the whole situation about not being able to find anyone to take him so he was temporarily staying until the 1st of March when supposedly my mom's friend could take him. He flipped out at me and told me he was trying to put Koji in a garbage bag and take him to the SPCA. I told him he was only staying for a little bit and that it was not permanent. He said that if he came back on the 2nd of March and Koji was still here, he would take him and leave him under a bridge for the SPCA to find. At that point I was curled up in the hallway, shaking and bawling my eyes out. People stopped and asked me if I needed help because of how distraught I was.
So because of that whole event, I've had to find a place to move by March. I have to say that it is a LOT harder than it sounds. I managed to get a roommate, who is a good friend and classmate of mine. He loves dogs and has been super supportive of the whole matter. We were looking day and night for a place to move. We had applications filled and submitted, but in the end we were turned away because others had gotten there first. Things looked really grim and I was afraid I'd actually have to sell my dog or risk him getting abused by my mom's brother.
Finally after weeks of searching we found a place. The new place we're moving to is a basement suite but it's literally brand new. Everything was just finished being built last month and we're the first tenants to the suite. The land lord is super nice and they had no problem with Koji at all, in fact he is a dog person so he was quite understanding.
I will be moving out this week and my mom's family can kiss my ass goodbye forever. As of posting this, I've already moved out!
Not a single person I talked to could justify, support, or even understand the my mom's brother's words or actions. As you noticed, I didn't refer to him as my uncle because family would not do that to family. People like that don't deserve to be in my life so I officially, as of that night, disowned all of my mom's side of the family. My mom even said that she would stop trying to make me get along with them and that she respected my choice. She really came through for me this time and told me if they wanted me in their lives, they would have to come and get me themselves.
Small rant for the disowned:
If you guys somehow manage to find this entry and read it, you'll probably think "wow you're so immature" and "we know better, you're just a dumb 20-some year old", please take several seats. You all have been awful and rude to me, especially these last few months. Money doesn't mean as much to me as you think it does. I don't need you, I don't need your money, and I don't need your fake, 2-faced "support". All you people have been doing is guilt tripping me, pointing fingers, and basically making my life a living hell by giving me irrational decisions to make. I've been in your family for more than 20 years and some of you still can't spell OR pronounce my name properly. Last time I checked, Olivia was a fairly common and straightforward name.
It's sad that I had to call you family when you never really gave two shits about us until my mom had to be admitted to the hospital. You think that just because you have money you can come in and get rid of all our problems and just fix everything. You've never been more wrong. It might fix some problems, but many of the problems my family faces are emotional, something none of you ever bothered to pay attention to. Even though you all contributed a lot to this move and really helped get my mom's life back on track, you completely disrespected us as human beings and disregarded our emotions entirely. I've never seen a family be so cold as to threaten to leave a dog under a bridge in the freezing cold. You should all be ashamed of what you said to me and to be quite honest, it would take way more than an apology for me to even consider letting you back into my life. Although at this point I'm sure you don't even really care about that, as you were never really in my life to begin with.
To close up this mini-rant, just know that I am not sad about this cut off at all. In fact, I've never received more love and support from my friends in my life because of you so in a way, it worked out. Don't call me, don't message me (I've blocked you all on my social media anyways), don't try and find me, and for the love of god don't harass my mom and sister about me (they'll never tell you anyways). My life may be tougher now just because of having to shoulder more responsibility, but I am a much stronger person than I used to be. I am way happier without you guys raining on my parade so consider this a goodbye forever. Don't expect to hear from me ever again. Never.
