I started totting up my bills, trying to figure out how long it'll take me to get caught up with everything. The verdict was not good.
Before we moved to this apartment, I was hoping to have extra money for badly needed computer upgrades, lots of cash for MFF, and enough money to buy some (again much needed) clothes before the trip out east this Christmas.
Well folks, it isn't going to happen.
I am really undecided if I want to keep trying to budget like this. On the one hand, yes, I know exactly how much money I have. On the other... it's extremely depressing to see that you won't have any spare money for yourself until January at the earliest.
I had hoped to take the thursday before MFF off in addition to Friday and Monday.. but I now realize that will be impossible. I'm going to have to work 10 hour shifts on those two weeks to make up for the time I'm already taking off... because I can't afford to miss any work.
I'm actually considering not staying in the hotel for the con.. just coming home. I know Roho won't like me doing that.. but it would save me $100 that I'm really not sure I can afford to spend.
I HATE being broke all the time. And I can't help but wonder what on earth I did to deserve everything I've been going through...
The job, the financial difficulties, the accident... when is life going to start getting back to normal?
