I want to say first that yes I was expecting PortCon to be expensive.Im not all "hey let me freeload!", nor am I mad about no more suite.Im just getting stressed about money in general.I want to help with rooming.Im glad for every thing I dont have to pay for though.I read the reply as a snark that I was being whiney...it kinda made me feel worst.I think it is better that Kun's parents dont have to pay that much, and that they are letting me stay without having even talked to me, & they arent asking for payment.Im just upset at how plans got changed so close to the wire.I atleast have a nice $150 right now~ Im really getting to the breaking-point with dealing with my mom with it now though.It is a big headache. Now she isnt going to give me any money back.She said she was to calm me down after my uncontrolable sobbing.It isnt dire and it is "her money" anyway...I get my hopes up again.Things look ok then go to nearly impossible like a yo-yo.Im looking for a job for the next 3 weeks now.I also have a fund box.

I never said you were being like that. And I have no idea how my reply was "snark." I was simply just saying that conventions are expensive.
Trust me, I think we'd all be glad for things we don't have to pay for, but it's not always possible to have that luxury. But just don't forget that, originally, when it was agreed that you were rooming with us, we were still planning on getting a normal room and splitting the cost. The only reason my parents stepped in was because of my stupid fucking boyfriend and his friend who wouldn't be allowed to stay with us unless they were in a different room. And now that they're not going (considering I still haven't heard a word from the asshole), it's just better to go back to the original plan.
I know it's a month before the convention and we're just now finding out. When we were discussing this matter in the beginning of May (I think it was?), my parents didn't know they'd have a wedding to pay for next year. Just be thankful it wasn't a week. That would have really sucked and been hard on everybody. A month is still quite a bit of time.

Just another thing. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh (I'm not trying to sound that way, just thinking of your well-being), but it's a bit of a concern to me.
Let me start off by saying that I REALLY want to see you this July and I'm really looking forward to you coming up. But, if you can't afford a mere $75, are you sure it's really a good idea to come down this summer? We're not going to make you and Arma pay for just being here, necessarily. But, there will definitely be cases where we will have to go out and buy our own food and food in the U.S. is not cheap right now thanks to Mr. Stupid in office with his dumb war. I'm just saying that it will cost you money being down here in some way or another whether it be food or... something else.
Don't get me wrong. I want you to come up. I've been looking forward to a great summer. But $75-$80 really isn't that much money and it's because you're hurting for money right now that I bring this entire thing up.

I couldnt think of a better word at the time. I just mean I that I took you and Shampoo jumping with I should have known they were expensive, to mean that I thought otherwise and that wasnt what I meant at all but it still triggered my "I am crap"-itis.

I will have money for food and spending, but Im still now in a pinch for transportation and rooming. I will be getting 2 support payments but not until the end of June and 2nd week of July. Hence is why my goal is only $400(now $250) so I can cover my reservations and yes Im going to help with the hotel, it is just that all this money-jazz is very stressful. I am sorry Kun.
