$36k would pay most of the annual tuition fee at an international school in Singapore. But not the registration, acceptance, enrolment or facilities fees. Or extra curriculars.

First year at Singapore American school would cost us about $50k per child. After that it would drop down to $45k/year, I think.

And then we'd have to deal with the sort of asshole kids that probably go to a school like that.

Yeah, being a parent is hard in quite a few different ways, but one main way is just never being able to afford any shit

if you didn't have any children, you'd be living like retired millionaires.

Getting couples massages at the resort and walking hand in hand down the beach in Boracay. I can see it now

Either that, or he would have grown tired of my shit and left me and I would have died from drugs

Our upstairs neighborhood and her daughter invited us a couple weeks ago to see her (the daughter) in a performance of Sister Act her high school is putting on this evening so we'll be doing that. Luckily the school is just a few blocks away because the snow started this morning, ugh. I think Tim and I are both pretty pumped, though.

And for tomorrow I have tickets that I bought for us to see a children's art show. It's a fundraiser being put on by an organization I used to work for that brings literacy/homework programming to homeless and domestic violence shelters. Around this time they collect the art work done over the semester by the children and the show is a way to show it off to donors and supporters.

They have kicked it up this year by adding food/drinks, a live auction, and charging for tickets.

Just got a letter from my brother in prison. He's apparently gone mad. Thinks he's a prophet of God appointed to preach. Wrote me four back to back pages of 'prophesy'.

This life is hell.

Not a word about stealing doing hard drugs and sexually assaulting college students. Just prophecies.

Fuck.

Prison is no place for a schizophrenic person.

Does he at least have access to anti-psychs?

has your relationship with your brother been good recently, or in the past few years, took?

sorry to hear about his apparent manic episode. one could hope that it'll at least get him to begin behaving better, if not anything else

Right on. It's awesome that you're taking a constructive role in your community. Grassroots is always the way to go.

I'm not a religious man myself, but is this necessarily a bad thing? If he's getting strength from it and its helping him stay positive then it's probably a good thing.

yes, it's a bad thing. have you ever heard of jim jones, charles manson, or david koresh? not that i'm implying took's brother is anything quite like that, but mental illness and religious ideology can be a dangerous mix. i'm sorry, took. hope he gets the care he needs

Speaking of TV, I can't believe the crap that comes on MTV2, which used to air on MTV. What an unwelcome blast from the past. Parental Control has been on all morning. I hate Saturday morning TV, I miss my Match Game

Yeah, I'm not saying it seems like a pleasant situation... But there's worse things people can turn to when they hit rock bottom than god.

It is a reaction to my last letter, in which I tried to tell him to stop doing hard drugs, stealing , living on the streets, acting beastly towards others etc. He completely ignored it and started telling me about visions from god and revelations that he is supppsed to spread. he's been doing this for a while. it's just never been this bad, never gotten four back to back pages of it.

don't know what to write back.
