I tell you cheating in school was not as hard as this, although I am pretty creative. Any ideas of what else I can do to write off more?

Evidently cheating is one of the things you learned well in school. You don't seem to have learned that bragging about it is far from a good idea.

If you don't already know that you can't legally deduct personal expenses, no matter how you cloak them, you need a competent tax advisor, and you need one now. If you already know that, you need to take heed of what we say on the farm: pigs get fat; hogs get slaughtered.
