    Default I Can't Pay My Bills

    I can't be the only one. I spent all day worrying over worksheets and the copy machine about all the bills I need to pay, loans I owe, all that jazz... I try hard to be a functioning adult, I actually am a fairly responsible person, and yet I am never able to take care of everything when I need to.

    What is the secret to having your tit together? How is it that I work nine hour days and have no money?

    Commiserate with me, people. Talk about your broke ass selves.

    People with money, gtfo. Or mail me a check, kthanx.

    I was in the hospital for a week and a half, and I was already broke. I just lost out on a quarter of my month's income. Also, my supervisor is smurfing incompetent and almost didn't pay me for the TWENTY FOUR smurfING HOURS I WORKED ON SATURDAY. Goddammit.

    I hate being poor.

    Answer: You live in New York. Also I will mail you a check, with love.

    It took me years to get my trout together. Finally, at 23, I am just now starting to get the hang of DON'T BLOW YOUR GROCERY MONEY FOR THE WEEK ON ETSY. The only reason I am not broke right now is because I am paying the cheapest rent I have ever seen in the area I live in. Although that's to be expected when your place is not bigger than a cardboard box.

    I am okay at paying bills. I do it in a timely fashion, but I sometime end up spending on crap that I don't really need. I guess a good analogy is that I sometimes rock the boat, but I am never reckless enough to tip it over.

    I'm back at uni and having to rely on my parents to fork my half of the rent/bills. Not a good feeling. :\

    dirty new yorkers!

    I live with my parents so my lack of making much money is offset by having fewer bills!

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I spent all my money on law school and couldn't work much of the summer due to the bar. And now my deferral for my subsidized law school loans ends in a month or two, which means I'll be paying an additional ~$400-500/month just for loan payments. Should be interesting.

    I was really broke at a moment of my life and was digging from the trash cans or fighting with the stray animals for food .

    (SPOILER)But I managed to get into a few random encounters, killed some monsters, get the money that magically appears after they died and I am loaded again!!

    I am getting to the point where I'm not picking which bill doesn't get paid that month and I have a teeny tiny little bitty amount in savings. A little progress at a time.

    Signature by rubah. I think.
