On average, I’m at work/school or doing stuff related to that about 65 hours a week, 75 during exam time. That’s including commuting, studying, the works. It REALLY sucks for my social life, but it’s great for my bank account. If I’m not out, I can’t spend my money. It serves me well.
We’re 5 days into April, and this is my 5th no-spend day. I have a test tonight, so there’s no way I’ll be doing any spending today.Tomorrow I’m getting paid and paying bills, and that’s pretty much it. The only other thing I might grab would be a 6 pack of Bacardi Breezers (can you tell I like rum yet?), because Saturday morning I’m driving with M up to cottage country for the night. Her family’s cottage is really peaceful, right on the lake, and just what I need for a little bit of peace and quiet. Jay has been calling me every night since we ended things- I don’t really mind talking to him, but when I add that into the mix with exams coming up and the issues at work, my head gets so full of static that I can’t focus. I need to cut out the noise. So, we’ll just be going up to hang out by the lake, ground ourselves again, and hopefully find some calm. This is a big month for me, and I need focus.
Clearly, my goal of 20 no-spend days is not too far off if every week is like this week!
What are you guys planning on doing this weekend? Anything fun?
