These last few days have gone by quick... and expenseless. I've tried staying in the house as much as I can... it seems that everytime I go somewhere with friends I end up blowing a bunch of money I shouldn't have, and I've eaten out way too much in the last couple weeks. I'm starting to freak out about the move. Particularly because I dont have as much money as I had counted on... the lack of real job right now doesn't help a bit. I'm gonna sell 2 of my guitars. They aren't worth much, but they're taking up space anyways and I can definitely use the money. I sold a whole box of things, but the money I got has already been spent. I needed a haircut badly... and once again, I've eaten out way too much. It just drives me crazy that I've been doing so good, but I let it all go in 2 weeks! Now I'm more or less home-bound. And it turns out I have a $26 library fine I thought I paid off 2 years ago... Of course I dont have the reciept anymore. And I'm still trying to get a job in PA. I applied at 2 more restaurants... closer to my apartment than the mall... and one said they would call me around the 1st for an interview. I'm crossing my fingers! I've been wanting to get a waitressing job... make tips! There's just something about jobs with tips. I like the idea that if I do a better job, I make more money, rather than doing the same job well or badly and getting the same paycheck. Doesn't make any sense to me... either way. Better shorten this up. later!

my boss cut my hours yet AGAIN. that means for the next 2 weeks i'll only be working on the weekends. i'm not on the schedule at all at the bookstore. ugh. it's really hard to save up a lot of money when you're not making any, but i'm convinced that things will go alright. i've been severely stressed out about the move, and it's probably good for me to chill out for a while. but still, the lack of money gives me more stress. poo. nonetheless, still root for me on my interview friday! scholarships, ho!
it's amazing how soon i'll be in my new apartment, and how frustrating it is getting prepared. boo. this past weekend i had my job interview and i'm waiting for them to call this week. i'm pretty sure i'm gonna get the job. this weekend is my scholarship interview, so everyone wish me luck! that's $40,000.00 towards my education if i get it. we're crossing our fingers... other than that, things are hectic, but not too busy. things are going great with my boy, though we're getting frustrated, too, about timing. he just got his new job, and things are so much more complicated when we have to work moving around his work schedule. either way, i have faith things will go fine in the end. later.
So things are still going great in the saving department. Actually, I walked to work yesterday, so I saved a dollar. Put that in my challenge money. Woo! The only bad thing is I didn't drink any water before/after I took the 45 min walk and got dehydrated, then fainted. ha. I've been drinking a lot of water today, lemme tell ya. Well then. Not a whole lot of news. Later!
So there's a little bad news... my boss continues to cut my hours at work. boo. He's got a new house he just built to pay for. I'm deciding he's a jerk. Along with that, the woman my mom was going to set me up with is looking for someone a little more permanent to fill the position. This is understandable, of course, I'm leaving in less than a month. The good news, however, is that I'll still make enough money and have enough saved to where I'll be set when I move. So I figure if I cant work, I might as well enjoy the time off (cheaply, of course). I haven't spent one dime on leisure or food in the last week. I packed all my lunches and engaged in money-less activities with the friends. And stayed in a bit. I did, however, have to pay my life insurance and RX. Next is bus tickets and cell bill. But I'm still doing good and those are the only bills left this month. Not to mention, I got my coupon for my RX the other day! That means $5 off next month. woo! So if I keep things up, I'll be looking at plenty financially by the moving date. That's it for the update! Later.
Just another day... same old. I'm hanging out with Kimmy tonight, so I'm hoping it'll be a movie night something or other. Dont really want to spend anything more than I have to. Luckily, she's picking me up from work here in an hour or so, so there's a dollar saved! Putting that in my challenge money. I'm now at $46.56. Other good news, when I got my withdrawal receipt at the ATM, my registered balance was around $700. That means my tax refund is processing at the moment. yay! Crossing my fingers for that part time position for the CEO of the chamber of commerce. Either way, gonna get going! Later!
