I’ve had so much free time on my hands, I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. Why is it that we have the most time when we don’t have money to do anything?
Netflix and Hulu decided to draw money out of my account at the same time. I wasn’t even thinking, I would’ve been okay, but I spent $12 at Sunoco and with the $20 deducted on top of that? My $15 turned into -$57 after the overdraft fee was added in.
Hey guys, long time no see. Things have been so hectic! Let me tell you, I moved, and it was the biggest shit show of a move. Never again. The next time we move, I’m giving myself at least a week before we need to be out. Because this shit was awful.
So my last update I had just quit my job, and we had one day to be out. Well, they let us know they wouldn’t actually be there until 8:30 AM Wednesday morning, so it gave us a little more time.
Do you ever stop and think about what you’re actually taking advantage of, right now, at this moment? I’m not saying this in a negative way, but many of us really don’t contemplate the fact that we have access to many things that gives us an advantage over other people.
Day 7 of Day 10, I’m ready for you. I’ll be stoked once it hits the weekend again. I’ve fallen behind on reading blogs, yet again. I was slowly starting to finally catch up, too! I’ll get there. I’ve been wanting to check out all of my new followers, too, and just haven’t had the time to look at your blogs either.
There are a couple jobs I’m going to mention in this post, because they all happened very close to each other. Not this past summer, but the summer before then, I had just graduated college, and knew my time of working on campus was coming to an end. I did graphic design work for the business college on campus, and while I love doing that sort of work, I was happy to leave because of my boss being so scatterbrained. Great and wonderful person, terrible at organizing and keeping things on track. Which made my job stressful when it didn’t need to be.
So I figured with the sort of posts I sometimes write, these journal entries would be a good way to kind of sum up my week. So I hate to disappoint you all, but it’s been a rather mundane week. Last weekend was filled with a lot of fun, that was short lived. Coming back on Sunday was just straight up depression for me lol.
I think everyone collects at least something. When I was younger, I used to collect receipts. As I got older, I realized how kind of pointless it was, but I liked the idea of remembering a past purchase – what I was doing that night, why I was doing it. I was a kid, so most of my purchases were on candy and junk food, so it really was pointless.
I’m older now, and maybe I should collect certain receipts when it comes to paying them off towards my taxes, but I don’t.
I’m not going to sit here and write about how great or terrible both are. There’s always a fine – very fine – line that people cross over to become addicted. This includes both drugs and alcohol. I have seen people at their worst on both, and it’s scary. But it hasn’t stopped me from my own drinking habits. However, the hardest drug I ever let myself try was weed, and let’s face it – that’s not a bad drug. I’m absolutely terrified at the idea of becoming addicted to a harder drug, that I won’t dare even try one for the sake of the experience.
If I won the lottery, I wouldn’t have a care in the world. Although, by winning it, I obviously mean winning big money. Thousands, if not more. If I won the Power Ball while it was super high, I don’t think I’d know what to do with myself.
I like to consider myself an optimist about just about everything. The glass tend to be half full for most scenarios – I’d rather look on the brighter side of things and be positive about it! However, there’s one thing I guess you could say I’m half empty about, and that’s money.
This idea actually came from a conversation with one of my coworkers yesterday. See, my coworkers like to place bets with one another. They asked me if I wanted to, and I said, “No, I don’t do bets.” Which I don’t. I don’t like the idea of losing money. As much as I’d love to win money, the odds are normally against me (whether it is 50-50 or not). Why spend money I don’t have to lose?
