I am so totally over this whole time going so quickly thing. It's September, I hate and yet love it. I want it to be next August and then I've already done everything I need to do this year. So, I'll be honest, I'm broke, as a joke. Seriously, I've got two nickels to rub together and that's about it. Not that I haven't been working my tail off for most of the summer, or that I've been spending it without regard (ok, not all the time, just some of the time), but I've come to a point where I have no money in my accounts and I've very little coming in (part time job until I substitute some more, even then, I won't get paid until next month). I don't want sympathy, it's partly my own fault, and partly the fault of the woman I worked for over the summer who has yet to pay me. That's right, I did work (about $1400 worth of work) and I haven't received a cent. Not to mention, I was told to purchase things on my credit card and I would be reimbursed, yeah well none of that either. But, I shouldn't have to scrape is the point, I should have had a savings account with some money in it, why is it that I always have the best intentions to save my money, and then I spend $100 on Oldnavy.com (in all fairness, I got 20% off my entire order). Anyway, I'm not sure exactly why I'm sharing this, if only to encourage you, all three or four of you who read this blog, don't ever, ever, ever get the point I'm at. It's depressing and frustrating and it keeps me up at night. Fortunately, I have some amazing family who help support me and cover my bills, but that's just as frustrating, because then I feel bad, I'm an adult I should be able to take care of myself.
Anyway, until I get paid, selling things on eBay (shoes, movies, books, etc. it's amazing what you can live without) and working odd jobs for my parents so I don't feel like such a lout. Also, it makes me happy that I'm endowed, because I've been going to the temple at least twice a week and that's free, so it gets my mind off my money, or lack thereof.
Think happy thoughts, life is great, even if it's a little stressful right now, I've got my health, I've got my family, and I've got the knowledge of the true and everlasting gospel, do I really need anything else?
