The sky? Falling?

Ugh, the economy. My goodness. It just keeps getting worse and worse. I wonder how old I'll be before they straighten this out. It's only just begun and I'm sick of it already. And sick of hearing the candidates try to BS how they'll fix it. They don't know.

I'm happy every day that I have my job in the humanities, and, more and more, happy I have a per diem job in health care.

Does bar soap go bad? I got 8 bars of Dial for $2.50, but I'm only one person. This could take awhile...

It might never end...

I started ignoring this blog because my summer spending was OUT OF CONTROL. I spent over $8,000 on travel and weddings. Probably over $9,000. It all just spiraled out of control, and although I tried to work more to keep up (I think I hit a peak of 98 hours one week), my total debt is currently $7,677, about $700 more than my April debt.

All I can think when I look at the numbers is how I could have not spent any money this summer and completely gotten rid of credit card debt. But I know that I'll cherish the memories and that life doesn't stop when you try to get yourself out of debt. I just feel so defeated. And I have plane tickets to Chicago next month and plans to visit friends in NYC and I hate to disappoint them but it's stressing me out to not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

But I will try, and hopefully prevail.
