All my Gackt posters are gone, even the one I intended to save. I guess it got lost in the move. I still have the portrait a friend drew for me, and my desktop background is a picture of him, but still. I know it's time to grow out of this obsession, but I don't think I'm ready. Throwing away those posters, and then not being able to find the one I saved--I'm much more upset than I should be, I think.
Tomorrow I'm going home. My cafe doesn't have me on the schedule at all this week, so why not visit my parents for a few days? It's annoying though; because I was on vacation last week, and I got no hours this week, I made less than $500 in this entire month. My rent alone is $350, and I still have health insurance, utilities, and student loans to cover. I'm thankful that I have a little bit saved up from my after-school job. I'm going to quit the cafe when the school year starts back up. Until I get to go back to teaching, I'll just tough it out at the cafe and live off my savings if need be. I think I have enough to last me through summer.
When I go home, I'm going to sit down with my parents and get them to help me write up a budget. I'm pretty good at saving-up, if only because I LOVE having a nest-egg, and I'm accostumed to having a lot of money at my disposal so I save like a fiend. BUT I also spend like one too. I just bought another pair of shoes (I had committed to buying them months ago, so I had to pay for them), and during the move I was forking out money every night to eat out since I couldn't and wouldn't cook. I also had to buy things for the new place, and two of my closest friends have their birthdays in July, and then I promised one friend I'd drive to Chicago with her next weekend, Harry Potter is coming up and I have to finish my costume, I'm going to 6 Flags in like, 30 minutes, and driving home this week will cost a fair amount...I need to stop DOING things. I think in August, I will do nothing to compensate for all the doing I'm doing in July. I think a budget would really help me in situations like this.
Speaking of doing things, I need to get ready for 6 Flags now. Well, there goes $30.
