Warning: This post could end up being intolerably long, due to pent-up demand.
Wow, it's been almost two weeks since my last post. Things have been crazy around here, with the work and the school and the housecleaning and all. To give you an idea of how the schoolwork had piled up, here's a list of what I had for homework over the holiday weekend: 5 drawings of my hand, 1 drawing of a turkey, practice the song I'm going to sing in Spanish class, watch a movie in Spanish (with English subtitles, thank God) and write a report on it, gather images for my final project in 2D Design, research and choose a pattern for my modular project in 3D Design, get that design photocopied onto many pieces of card stock, finish a painting for 2D Design class. And, I worked 10 hours at the job, and I cleaned out my closet, changing out the summer clothes for the winter ones. Whew!
Amazingly enough, I managed to get all the homework done, for once. Unfortunately, I didn't get to work at the job as much as I'd have liked, due to all the other stuff. So my paycheck is gonna suck, again. I'm starting to fret about money problems again. I need to get the master cylinder thing fixed, and I'm late on my car payment. Also, on Monday I got home from work to find a notice under my door that they're gonna raise my rent again in January. Fortunately, it's not $60 like I first thought (until I realized that I was looking at the new rent for a 3 bedroom apartment), but it is gonna be $25 a month more, which still sucks but not as bad. I'm really looking to God to come through, as He usually does, one way or another. I do a lot of praying in my car these days, usually along the lines of, "Please God, let the brakes hold out until I have the money to fix them!" :^) Anyway, things should be better by the first part of next year--I only have 4 more car payments to go, and if I can just get past that, that'll be $225 more a month in disposable income. Another good thing about this time of year is that my electric bill goes down susbstantially. The furnace and water heater are gas, and gas is paid as part of the rent. So I really like Kentucky Utilities this time of year.
More good news--I mentioned earlier that I switched out my closet this weekend. In doing so, I found several pairs of pants that I either didn't remember I had or thought they didn't fit. I also found a couple of pairs of shoes that I swear I don't remember buying. Best of all, in a duffel bag I found a bunch of art supplies that I really needed! Yay!
I'm sure there's oh, so much more that I was going to write about, but I'm about typed out for the night. I think I'll go veg in front of the TV for a bit, since I can. I hope that it won't take me as long to get back here next time!
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
