Vacation Official: Plane Ticket Purchased :)

September 8th, 2010 at 08:24 pm

So BF and I purchased our plane tickets to Micronesia for December. Though my bank account is now $1858 lighter, I feel so great about it. I've been trying to leave the country to see new places since high school. It only took 6 years... So exciting!

The better news is that I'm not completely broke, even after making such a large purchase. I'm certainly not rolling in the dough, but things are good. Really good.

I picked up an assignment for a website I wrote for previously, and they want me to cover a couple articles for them-- at $100/pop. Woo! Guess I don't feel too silly for giving them the last one for free. That'll be a nice push in the income for October, and they have a couple more coming up in November and December that they'll throw at me. Yay Smile

The writing has been fabulous this week, and I'm feeling rather productive. Not really spending a whole lot. Did have to take Baby to get his shots at the vet this morning. That ran $32. I bought another Groupon... these things are pretty sweet. Restaurants and bars I would go to anyway, and it'll cut the cost down in half.

I've got drill this weekend, so the spending should be way down. Still haven't spent a red cent on campus for meals. Yay for being a packer Smile

Alright, it's really time for me to get to sleep now. I think I'm getting delirious. lol. Just wanted to share in my celebration (there have been so many of them as of late)!

Night everyone!

    Whoa, Micronesia! Very cool. What leads you to choose such an exotic locale? It's certainly not the run of the mill Hawaii, or Bahamas, or whatever. Congrats on the article gig, it's nice to have the insurance that they dug your freebie enough to hire you for more work! It really paid off, huh? Have a great drill weekend...

    BF's sister is currently a Jesuit volunteer in Micronesia, so we're going to visit her for the holidays. I certainly wouldn't have picked that one on my own Smile lol. I agree, it's fantastic that my work is paying off! Thanks!
