Just a November entry (haven't made one for this month yet!)

November 30th, 2010 at 07:58 pm

Hi everyone, today is a sick day for me. I tried to go in but I was very nauseous, etc. I won't go into details. Louisiana weather can be sudden and whenever it gets cold I catch a cold. Yesterday people were wearing short sleeves. Tonight it may go into freezing temps!

Anyway this month has been a lot of fun in some ways. I have gotten to catch up with a ton of friends. Also I got to go to the Renaissance Festival and rode an elephant there! It was so much fun even though I was exhausted from the one day trip.

Financially, the month has been a bust. $100 here, $100 there. But when I say bust, I just mean that I haven't been able to save much. On my last check I saved $200, but I don't think I saved any on the last 2 checks before that! I am kind of disappointed in myself because I can afford to save $300 on every paycheck. But that doesn't mean that it happens! Also I make 1400 every month. My major bills equal a little over $400. With about $100 for food and approx $50 for gas I don't know where the rest is going. However I did loan a family member $100 this month and getting it back would be like having saved it. Unfortunately this family member hasn't said anything about it.

I'm not looking forward to Christmas really. I would rather save all that money. If that sounds selfish, I'm sorry. I know everyone appreciates a gift on Christmas, but after that day, nobody cares! What's the point? The religious aspect means nothing to me as well. Maybe if I had my own family with kids or something but nowadays, it's not so exciting.

Been seeing a new guy for the last month and a half, but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I like spending time with him and all, but he is broke from his low-paying job so we don't do too much but watch dvd's. And then he says stuff like when he gets a better paying job he won't have time for anything else. If that's not writing on the wall, I don't know what is! So I don't really know what to do with that.

But anyway, sorry this is such a negative sounding post. Being sick doesn't put you in the best of moods I guess. And if I don't get paid for a sick day today, my paycheck will be really bad.

Hope everyone is doing better than I am, haha!

PS: To cheer everyone back up I'm including a Thanksgiving pic of me and the dog I got in July. I loved it so much I made a poster out of it, lol!
