Hm, I worked really hard on this didn’t I? Well, turns out, I just didn’t have enough lift to take care of my car, and so I took it to the mechanic. Though, the only problem with my job was that the bolts were too big and there wasn’t enough pressure, otherwise I put them on right. :) Still, it was a really fun learning experience toying around with everything, but boy, am I glad that’s over.
I have to replace the catalytic converter eventually, but for now, I’ll check this off my list because my baby is hummin like a song bird.:) 14 months ago
I did this on accident haha. I had my steel plugs in so long that they were ready to go and I didn’t even know it..
I think my piercings are too high because I think I got them done in wal-mart years ago. Plugs look fine, tunnels look kinda creepy on me haha. 16 months ago

Apparently, you have to plan this more than 3 days in advanced. From what I heard, some people camped on the 30th.
Went to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to watch fireworks instead. :) 16 months ago

Saves money in the long-run. Short term, supplies may have cost me more than buying gifts. What I enjoyed most was how thoughtful each gift was, really appealed to the individual. I made a poster for my roommate and he loved it. :)
I also have tons of craft supplies, woo. 17 months ago

Absolutely adore that quote. My friend and I were just talking about that, when people ask what we want, we always say “Our own place” rather than “be rich.”
For impulse buys, I usually think about it for a week or so, and if I really want it, I’ll get it. Usually, after a while I forget about whatever it was I wanted (I’m not an ebay girl, but etsy is my weakness). I know with sites like that its hard, because its easy to see it as losing an opportunity on a good deal, but just remember that the money you don’t spend can lead you greater opportunity in the future. :]
Monthly income seems easy enough. Maybe get direct deposit if you don’t have it? That way you can see the checks/dates on your account which is accessible with most banks online. I also heard Mint is a good app for figuring out where your money is going.
What I find to work for me rather is, set away the funds you need (for bills or what not) with each check, then the rest is yours to spend on whatever! I feel its easier to keep track of what to put away every time you get paid rather than trying to calculate spending.
Good luck! 17 months ago
2 more done today! Now that finals are over I’m on a gift-making frenzy.

When you get a 100 on your math final (showed college algebra who was boss), than decide you’ll do your economics final after you finish the study guide, then realize it took you 6 hours to compile your study guide..
SO, no econ until I hear back from the teacher whether i’m exempt or not.

These are both great apps to use. Personally, I use hottnotes and Stayfocused.
Hottnotes only has one list on the desktop, but I usually just use that for daily task. It has a notebook/archive which means I can make multiple, different named, list for multiple task.
What list program do you use? 17 months ago

Emailed the adoptee white uncle and aunt, hoping they didnt have any ideas and would donate to our hously cause.However, no avail. In fact, they think I can afford to pay their sons to fix up! Hey, just because my diet is frozen samosas, Ritalin and marlboro reds DOES NOT, I repeat, DOES NOT mean I am not equally capable of completing home renovating task. Though, my lack of $$$$$$$$$ does. Hence, paying your sons is a foolish, implausible idea.
Don’t get me wrong, they gave some great advice. I think they symphatize with me a little, the commented on the atrocious (absolutely atrocious) door that was haphazardly stripped with generic chemical strip (hello, your house is painted WITH LEAD PAINT). Rawr, frustration.
Well, at least I got their support. Furthermore, they say after the holidays they will fix the lights. Ohhh , to finally have a pull switch and not have to screw/unscrew the lightbulbs, I thought it was only a dream.

Well, I tutor at work, getting paid by the state at a community college. It’s real fun,but it defiantly get’s frustrating. The most frustrating job I had was when someone came up to me with an essay that opposed gay couples adopting children, riddled with hypothetical, made up statistics and ideas that didn’t even make sense. :( but yeah, i enjoy it otherwise.
Thanks for the support. :) 17 months ago
I work,but some people suggest I tutor privately. Seems fun, and more important, seems profitable.
Also want to sell jewelry.
I’d love to have extra money without subjecting myself to working two jobs while full-time in college, I’ve done it before, if I had a book started with ”...and the worst of times”, yeah well, that’s going to school full time and working full time, yuck. 17 months ago
