Two Plans To None
So I'm a little upset. A little with myself, and a little with other people. I had originally planned to head out to visit with a cousin in KC, and meet Haeji (another cousin) out there as well for a little summit of sorts. It was a nice idea, that got off on the wrong foot to begin with because I didn't start planning it until it was nearly too late. And then I made the big mistake. My aunt had told me that there was some big trip being planned to go to Virginia to visit another branch of the family. Now, I'm not too close with this side of the family, and in fact when I was just down there in December, the cousins there pretty much ignored me and my generous gift of candy (not even a thank you to a giant box of chocolate, very rude). The adults were much nicer, but then I don't speak Korean and they have better manners. So I'm not all that eager to go, but my aunt informs me that the other three cousins are going and I'll be needed to drive, and it's all set anyhow. Mind you, that's how it was sold, that it was all set. It also happens to directly conflict with the KC plan, which I told her. I get the sad face, (and this is where I make the mistake) so I agree to push back the KC plan. :: Fast forward to today. One cousin got a job working at a restaurant, she can't go. Another cousin is just being ... I dunno, but I'm 99% sure he's not going. The third cousin really wants to go, but he has no car. And I'm not all that eager to go, and I have no car. When I ask my aunt WTF is going on, she doesn't know and maybe I should call my cousin that wants to go. She thinks that he's taking a bus. I see on email that he seems to think it would be a good idea to go (ie: he's clueless on what's going on). There was no plan, and it doesn't look like there will be one. Which is a bitch and a half, because I moved the KC plan for something that turned out to be a complete fabrication. Oh, and the KC plan? That's fallen completely apart too. There is no weekend between now and the end of August that's going to work. None. Zip. Nada. Zilch. Doing some quick math in my head, either we shoot for something in Feb., or the other cousins have a summit without me because I'll be in either Florida or Korea. :: Now, I'm not saying that the KC plan for June 25th would have worked, but I was ready to buy tickets and there didn't seem to be any indicated problems. As it stands now, the only thing I can salvage out of this whole fiasco is to go to Virginia with the one cousin (by bus? renting a car? hitchhiking?), to visit family I already know doesn't much care for me (yay). I should have known better because this sort of crap happens all the time. From now on I'm just gonna do my own thing, and if anybody wants to do something, let them do whatever they hell they want to on their own goddamn time. If it works into my schedule, fine, if not, tough shit.
