do you hold a grudge...

OR a chip on your shoulder about something? anything which happened to you in your life? Does something carry with you each and every single day? Feel free to discuss it here!

I'm not sure if what I carry is a chip or a grudge. but there's definite anger, I guess. See, when I was just about to graduate from high school, I went to this college fair with a copy of my high school transcripts and one university (3000 miles away, but all of our family lived in this state so I wouldn't have been alone) was interested in me and said that I had a possibility of getting a full ride scholarship but they needed my parents tax information. My dad wouldn't give the information so I couldn't get anywhere with the scholarship for that school. Settled for going to a community college (to do the same stuff at the university) but in the end it took me 6 years to get a 2 year degree. Now everytime my dad "jokes" about how long it's taken me to get my degree I get pissed off and tell him it's his fault. That if he would have given the university the tax information I would be done with school and teaching at an elementary school.
