I Haven't Felt Like Blogging Lately But...

1. I got a call from a recruiter about a job thats damn near my *almost* dream job. Can you imagine doing the same thing that you are doing right now, but making 50% more than you are now? Now you see why I said that it's a dream job. The recruiter has submitted my resume to his client and now I just have to wait. If I get this job, I can be out of debt in 2 years.

2. I got gifts for Christmas this year. I was mildly shocked since I haven't gotten a gift in about 3 years.

3. I'm so damn horny that i'm starting to get the shakes. It's been a month and a half and I have 2 and a half to go before my birthday (that's when I will allow myself to have sex again).

4. I have $1XX dollars in my checking account. It seems as though everytime I get back on board something *brakes for the car, old power bills* comes along that knocks me back overboard. I realized that I am living paycheck to paycheck because of how I pay my bills. I overpay on debt and it leaves me with little else until the next payday. I think i'm start giving the cards the minimum until I can save a little chunk of change.

5. I need to divorce all of my exes for good. I'll explain that later in another post.

6. I'm sick of going to clubs. I have honestly gotten bored with it and decided to take a break from that also. I may go every now and then, but clubbing will not be my #1 social activity.

7. I can't decide what to do for my 30th birthday. Should I go on a trip or should I buy a 42 inch flat panel television?

8. I have had it up to here with my apartment complex. Can you believe that I woke up this morning to a soaked bedroom carpet? It seems that the roots of the tree in front of my apartment are causing problems and when it rains, water can run into my apartment. I'll be making a list of all of the issues that I have had since I moved in and talking to the complex manager on Monday. I'll be damned if I am not compensated for all of this shit somehow. I can't wait to move. I hate this place.

9. I finally have waves in my hair. It took a while, but i'm all waved up now. I finally feel like all that brushing, washing, tying up, and moisturinzing was worth it. Now can I keep it up is the question.

10. Is it possible for regular people like me to win the lottery? It seems like only senior citizens or trailer park dwellers or the already wealthy win the fucking lottery. I need to stop giving my money away on the lottery and start back going to the casino.

I've been feeling lazy too on the blog front. I so need to post at least one more entry before the 07 is out. Random comments on a few of your bullet points:

#1 - Oh my gosh...I really hope you get the dream job.

#3 - Heh I didn't have shakes when I went through my celibate period but I did go nearly out of my mind but be sure if you break it, it's with someone worthy.

#4 - Hopefully if you get #1, it may help you with this scenario.

#5 - I await the explanation.

#7 - Tough choice there. I'm almost inclined to go with the TV.

#8 - They so need to compensate you. That's beyond ridiculous. It's good that you've been keeping a list.

#10 - I wonder the same thing. I've been trying my luck with the instants...I've typically either lost it all or broke even. I was surprised to win $100 recently, though. Now if only I can find the one with a couple extra zeroes behind that.

First and foremost: I am pleased to hear that things in the area of employment are going your way, you are truly making progress.
No Christmas gifts in 3 yeras? Most have been naughty the past three years; I know the feeling we give and no one things enough of us to give a gift, just a small token, but no that would be like they cared. I can not complain this year I received more gifts than preivous years, but crappy gifts.LOL I do appreciate the thought.
What is this about you being horny? Does your plan refrain you from taking matters into your own hands literally? I hear that if you excercise it helps to take the urge for sex away, although I doubt it seriously.
Living paycheck to paycheck? Hey no worries man it happens however; once your income increases and you take control of your debt and spending habits your ability to save more and have more. It takes a minute, but you are going to be just fine.
You mentioned paying the minimum on the credit cards, now that is a no no! As much as you can to bring the balance and finance charges down. No charging while making those payments.
Divorcing all your ex's! Good! Now maybe someone can get your attention and affection.
Clubbing can be fun when done in moderation, no over spending on drinks and new clothes for the club.
Hell no! No celebrating your birthday by purchasing a 42inch plasma television, or taking some expensive trip, instead have dinner with a new friend or special friend, maybe visit themif they live in another city, but no lavish spending it's your 30th not 50th birthday, you have many many more to celebrate.
I know all to well about aparment management and upkeep of such complexes, it can be from hell. Yeah maybe it is time to seek suitable housing elsewhere.
Waves in the hair now that is sexy, and I am sure you like the way it makes you look and feel...old school. Keep that brush and doo rag.
Lottery it is only for the rich, working class people don't win, hell I bought ten dollars worth yesterday total winnings... four dollars. hard work and good investments make us rich.

Get the TV. You go on (working) trips like every week. Then again you go on working trips every week. I dunno.

I'm hopeful you'll get that dream job, those don't come around often.

If it were me, I'd go on a small vacation trip at minimum cost and then wait for a 42 inch flat screen to go on sale.

1. I pray that you get the job. I'm also looking to switch jobs this year.

2. Hmmmmm gifts are cool if peeps know you well enough to get ya something...

3. (Plans a trip for 2.5 months from today for me and Lil Dred to visit after.. Hehe)

4. Hmmmmm pay check to pay checkc is rough I agree. Paying the minimum is not the way tho. The best course of action is to change 'how' you pay your bills. Call the bill collectors and have the due dates stagger. Open a second checking account and seperate half the billz per pay period in the second account. Only write checks off of that bill account. Seeing your money seperate helps accountability. At least that's how I do it. Plus I move money to my savings (Sorry, it's the Accountant in me...).

5. Fuck'em all!

6. Do house parties/social gatherings. Their cheaper and you meet quality people.

7. Get the TV.

8. Check out the rules in your city. You may be able to with hold rent until they correct the problem. Don't know for sure but in my last apartment, that threat lit a fire under the complex's ass!

9. You're late on the waves chief. LoL.

10. Yes, if you buy the ticket in Iowa.


~Damnit!
