I got my financial aid check yesterday! Yay! The first thing I did, even before I went to the bank, was stop off at the apartment complex office and pay my rent through May. It feels good to have that off my mind. Now I need to figure out if I'm gonna use part of the rest of the money to pay off my car. I owe about $800 on it, and only have 4 more payments to make. If I pay it off, A) it's out of my hair and B) I can drop my car insurance down to liability only. However, paying off the car would take most of what's left after paying my rent. I think I'm gonna table the issue for a couple of weeks, pay the current payment this month, and figure out how much of this money I'm gonna need for art supplies and so on. Of course, I also have other bills to catch up on. If anyone has any words of wisdom to add to the mix, bring 'em on.
