Got my paycheck today and found out I was shorted about $250.  After the hassle of the last time I was shorted, I just opted to have it placed on my next paycheck, but this means that some of the things I was going to do I can't.  

Stupid work.

This is the third time this has happened, and each time it's really inconvenient. 

Thank Gods I  have enough food in the fridge I don't need to buy any groceries.  The kitties are all set, too, thank goodness.  I just hate when everything goes to bills and there's only a bit left over to last til next payday.  

Sigh.

Hello, all!  I'm still alive!  

I know my last post was pretty grim, and I haven't posted in a while.  But I am doing much, much better.  The money issue has mainly sorted itself out in that I have vowed not to make myself sick overthinking things.  I'm going to do the best I can, and it will work itself out. 

I had 6 days off this past week, from Thursday until yesterday, Tuesday.  It was so nice!  My mom and I took my sister back to Seattle on Thursday to say goodbye before she takes off for England, and then I spent Saturday at our local county fair.  I indulged and had a corndog, a caramel apple, and a giant lemonade, lol.  Also, I splurged and bought myself some earrings for 6$. I was very proud of myself for only going on 3 rides, and just enjoying the day.

Monday I went to Ellensburg, about 2 hours from where I live, to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] enkiduts and have our very own fangirl day of squeeing over Holmes.  

Also, I got new tires on my car, since the old ones were almost literally about to die a painful death, and got my oil changed.  Thank God for credit cards, even though just the thought of how much it cost is enough to make me wince.  Still... It had to be done.

Anyway, now I am back at work.  It's been pretty quiet today, and I'm fighting off a headache that seems to have come out of nowhere. I was actually pretty excited to be back at work. I have a new schedule, hence the long weekend.  Now I work Wed-Sat, which isn't nearly as nice as the Sun-Wed, but oh well.  I still get my three day weekend, and this will actually work out better because the family usually has Sunday off.  

Anyway, that's my boring life.  I hate this new twitter/ facebook thing.  Good God, LJ, get your head out of your ass!  Sheesh.  I think you can all guess what my policy is on linking, but if not, please don't.  

And that's about it.  How are you all doing?  I've been following everyone's LJ, but if anything new and exciting is happening, let me know.  I love you all!  

((((HUGS FLIST))))

I think I must have pissed off some kind of tech God.  I had to redo my computer's operating system on Wednesday, because it only gave me the black screen of death when I turned it on, and today my cable box started smoking before totally dying.

0_o

Doh!

I got it unhooked and turned everything off, but my place smells of burnt bacon and I can't watch my cable.  Also, I hadn't yet watched the new Supernatural, and I'm pretty sure it's lost now.  Grrrrr.

The tech is supposed to come out tomorrow, hopefully to fix my box (HA!) or give me a  new one.  Until then, I guess I'll just have to make do with watching Granada's Sherlock Holmes and perhaps reading a book tonight.  Oh, the horror!  (Snicker)

Still... Kind of miffed about losing all the shows I had saved.  Not to mention it's going to cost about 100$ to get the computer diagnosed and fixed.  Since I've missed so much work to being sick, my paycheck has been pathetically small, so it may be a few weeks before I can take it to get all the bugs out.  Sigh.  It always comes down to money.  

Oh, well.  I hope you all are faring better than I.  Take care, and have a safe and happy weekend!

...because really, I'm kind of tired of feeling like the universe is laughing at me.

I just found out I'm almost 300$ in the hole.  This is the first time in almost a year that I have been in the hole, and I had hoped to never be here again.  Apparently the bank rearranged my charges so that what would have been a 30$ debt, which I was willing to pay, turned into this huge sucking hole.  

I get paid next Friday, which means I just have to hold out until then. No groceries, no going anywhere but work because I can't afford gas, and no talking on the phone unless I have to because I use pay as you go.  I do not want to be here again. 

And yes, I know it's my fault for willing to go into debt a little so I could pay my student loan on time, but for fuck's sake.  300$!!!!!  

Thank God I'm working 9 hours overtime this week. 

EEP!

Ok, really starting to feel the crunch now. I graduate in a little over two weeks, which means I'll get my GI Bill for December and then I'm out of money. I have some in savings, enough to last about a month, but after that, I'm screwed. I spent a large portion of the day looking for jobs and so far the only ones I've seen that looked possible were a secretary for waste management and jobs located several hours away from here. Sigh.

I'm really starting to worry now. Please send me some good thoughts job-wise. Hopefully I'll have something by Jan and won't have to worry about rent and stuff, but, oh, goodness, I'm starting to panic!!!!

Hello, all.  I just wanted to post a quick update before I vanish again.  My father is off the ventilator, his pnuemonia has cleared up and he is stable.  In fact, I was able to talk to him today and tell him I love him, which I haven't been able to do for almost a month.  So for that, at least, I am thankful and very grateful.

On the other hand, someone hacked into my paypal account and took out 539 dollars, which totally pisses me off to no end.  I just don't have the energy for this shit anymore.  I have to go to the bank tomorrow and call customer service to get it straightened out.  Gahh.  I just can't win.  

Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still around and am so very thankful for all your support the past few weeks.  Once classes calm down and I finish with the 7 Straight Nights I should be around more often.  Take care, everyone.

Just found out today that I qualify for an unsubsidized loan.  If I take it, then I'll owe about 8,000 as of right now.  On the other hand, I can't really picture how I'm going to pay for school any other way.  So...I guess I'll be taking the loan and selling my soul for the next several years.  Is a BA really worth it?  I hope so.  I wish I could quit Walmart right now and just concentrate on school, but I don't think that will happen.  However, I got a coaching today becuase I've been absent 6 times since Oct.  Yeah, pesky little things like a bad back and stomach flu will do that to a person.  They told me if I get 7 absences then it is grounds for termination.  So, yeah, ok.  I guess I should just start looking for a new job, sigh.  Oh, well.  It was nice having insurance while it lasted. 
*Hugs Flist!*

About a week ago I came home from work and my left foot was all swollen and sore.  I thought that maybe I had just pulled something, even though for the life of me I can't remember doing ANYTHING to it.  Now its a week later, and it's worse, not better.  Honestly?  I think I may have broken it, though I have no clue how!  It's the top of my foot, almost right in the center, and it hurts like bloody blue blazes.  I can still walk on it and all, but by the end of the day I'm about ready to knaw my ankle off.  To make it worse, I have no insurance an no money, so I can't even go to get it x-rayed to find out if it really is broken or if I just did something really wierd to it.  Sigh.
On the plus side, do to a really odd coincidence, I won 400 dollars in a survey lottery, and was able to pay off some bills.  Also, I'm going to Boston next week.  I bought the ticket and everything before I hurt myself, but now I'm staring to wonder if the Gods just don't want me to take this trip. 
Other than that I really don't have much to add.  My classes are going well, except for the math class.  The teacher is hot, but he goes way too fast.  He doesn't do a very good job of explaining things, and I'm really in trouble.  The Russian is easy, as I took it for 5 years in high school and this is pretty much just a refresher course.  My geology class is actually a lot of fun.  Who would have thought that looking at rocks could be so cool? 
Well, that's my life in a nutshell.  Still no boyfriend or social life, but who needs those when I'm about to graduate with my AA and transfer over to WSU?  If everything goes according to plan (crosses fingers) then I should be starting winter semester. 
Things are starting to come together!
