$5 for cigarettes. $2 for two dollar store meals. Fuck that ramen nonsense. Hell you can buy a 40 too and still be under $10 a day, and if you’re not feeling it that night your meal fund goes up to $5. Do you know what that means? Buy some dollar foods that provide more than one meal like chicken nuggets and things like that. Lunch is covered for days for $1, and you can spend $5 on a really decent meal. Rio grande chicken and fries? Huge portion. Half the things on the pepper pod menu? Go for it! You don’t need giant meals, empty calories, lose weight. Or eat two meals from your dollar store freezer supply, and use that money for scooter gas, one gallon gets you 85-110 miles. You heard right.
That’s food, cigarettes, gas and beer money for an entire month under $300. Add another $200 for rent and you’re talking around $500 and easy living.
Part time minimum wage never felt so good.
And that’s another $370 in savings every month if you work thirty hours a week at $7.25. Yes, that is a $370 cushion for anything you could want. Do one month of work and afford all basic needs and an xbox, still saving about $170 for that month. Get yourself some games kid, go ahead! Save the funds for three months, get yourself a dope ass camera. End of the month $300 shopping spree? Fuck yeah you can. Save up for three months and get yourself a cheap 50cc scooter, guess what bro, you’re mobile. All the possibilities.
I am so anal about my finances.
I am so very proud to work 5 days a week, short 6 hour shifts, two off days at $7.25 and still have everything on lock.
I am so incredibly great at being poor. I should write a book.
out of all the chinese scooters, taotao seems to be the best.
i know no one cares about any of this. but it’s all i’ve been spending my time doing, and it’s my blog so yes. and the more i post about it on here the less i’ll talk to keith about it which means less chance of getting strangled. and not in the sexy way.
all saying inexpensive and you get what you paid for. but i think i’d rather pay $770 instead of $3,300 i was going to pay with financing that with interest would end up being over $5,000. so no matter how much work i put into this thing, i’ll still be saving money. also i’d love to have a project and learn how to work on it, as i plan to get more and i plan to get old vintage ones that don’t work anymore and fix them.
need to buy more sleeping pills. i’ve been out for a while.
on the to do list.
up in four hours. calls for one hell of a nap time after we go look at scooters. may be so tired we put that off until tomorrow. then keith and dave are off thursday and i don’t go in til four, so spending the evening drinking with them and watching jackass.
It’s so hard to close my eyes. I always open them because I want to look at you more. I can’t help but let my hand feel every bit of your skin. I can’t help but stare at your lips and want to kiss them but be too afraid to wake you.
It’s so hard to sleep next to you feeling butterflies still. Thinking about how lucky I am. That there is no way in hell I’ve been sleeping next to you for 10 months, as it still feels like the first week. Thinking about your smile, and hearing the little moans of happiness you make when I kiss on you or cuddle you closer.
It’s so hard to sleep with you next to me, worrying that one day you won’t be.
It’s so hard to sleep when I’m so scared I finally, actually found the one.
It’s so hard to sleep when you realize that you may believe in all of this after all.
and as the menu music came on i was brought back to when i got my first apartment. and how we watched that every night as it was basically the only movie we had and alyssa had to sleep to a movie on. i’d wake up and hear it and remember, “i am alone and i’m okay.” it was nice.
no matter what i'm reading as soon as the word "cosmic" is used, i stop reading.
unless it’s a cosmic brownie. then of course i want one, thank you for asking.
didn’t sleep! doctor’s appointment went well as in i got medicine but bad as in i have a fever. bah. but i should be all fixed soon. i just ate a pep+chee and it was great. i cannot get a hold of keith. hmph.
at the levee and will be the next four days too. bah.
but good news, i’m probably definitely getting my scooter for sure and my dad said he’d pay $200 towards it if i get my temps and then license. pretty cool! :)
staying up doing dumb finance stuff in my head. must sleep. have to be up soon for doctor’s appointment and then work. fuck.
but i would very much like to be my dyke self on my scooter, and be able to go on late night or hell, day time adventures with keith or whoever wanted to as i would get 100mpg and we wouldn’t have to be worried about gas. and we can explore and adventure and it’ll be fantastic.
I pay $220 for rent. I pay about $20 to $40 for bills so I’ll just say $50. I spend about $150 on cigarettes. That’s $450 left. That’s a big amount. Very big. That covers food and whatever else I may need. Aka I’m saving A LOT of money a month as I don’t tend to spend…
That covers food and whatever else I may need. Aka I’m saving A LOT of money a month as I don’t tend to spend… haha that’s included in my food expense which usually around $4-$7 a night there. ;) i thought of it, no worries! haha :)
for some reason when i reblog it won’t include your text! gah!
$870 is how much I make a month with 30 hour weeks.

I could totally do $169 a month for a vespa. I totally totally could. And with moving I may definitely need transport.
I want to go apartment hunting and find something perfect.
And I want to find a king sized mattress for your bed frame to have our own bed.
I want to fill the kitchen with real food and ingredients and fill the pantry with snacks for us.
I want to have our pets.
I want to make dinner together.
I want to have date nights on our couch and watch movies.
I want to look all over thrift stores and flea markets to find things to put on our walls.
I want a jar for our change.
I want to have little chores just because taking care of OUR house will make them so much better.
We’re absolute shut in’s now. I can only imagine then.
Just have to wait until August or October, depending on the game plan. It’ll be hard but worth it. And if Gordy moves in with us and we get a two bedroom, I’d be okay with that as well. But I’d much rather have our own place.
Dating. Moving in with other people. And then moving in together just us. Third big step in a relationship.
I’m so scared with everything I see around me that this won’t work out. And I know how stupid I look putting everything into this. I feel stupid doing it.
But I can’t help it. It’s too perfect. We’re too perfect. You’re too perfect.
Even though I'm not tired, and you fell asleep as I woke up,
I adore laying here with you watching your chest rise and fall and feeling your body’s movements.
Last night wasn’t good. I haven’t been that upset in a long time. I still hurt a lot. I’m still really scared. I’m really really really scared.
But I want whatever we have to be real, so I guess I can’t ignore what’s happened.
Just for once I want someone to only want me for the whole duration of our relationship. I want to be enough. I want to be too special to risk losing even before they have me. I want someone to treat me they way I treat them.
And I’ve come to terms that I’ll never have that perfect relationship. But I can try to make this as close as I can.
i hate bringing this up again. but anyone who was so sweet commenting on the dirty defending me is really awesome. thank you guys. i wish i knew who you all were so i could buy you coffee to say thanks!
“Back when I was a teenager, if we didn’t like someone, we typically didn’t waste our time talking about them and thinking about them all day.
You kids are a strange lot these days.
Do you have too much free time, or are you just compulsively crafting your life around her for other reasons? Either way, kids these days… Such drama queens.”
i dunno who it is, but whoever you are, even if you’re a complete stranger, you’re sweet. i commented on it yesterday saying, “day MADE!” but apparently they don’t like it when the subject of the post doesn’t add to the drama. psh. what a sad website. what a sad post! if it was someone who actually hung out with me or any of my friends they’d have so much more shit on me. everything on there is definitely from someone who just reads my tumblr or facebook. come on, i’m not saying i’m a shitty person but there’s definitely a lot in my life you could twist to make me seem like one. sad day. whoever internet stalks me to that degree, and has such an issue with me, yet continues to internet stalk me has a problem.
and i know whoever posted it will be reading this so to you,
there’s so many ways to contact me love, i’m not sure why a petty internet bash attempt seems like your only option. i’m open to discussion. i’ll show you the really shitty sides of me and give you a reason to hate me since you’re looking so hard for one.
until then, you’ll keep reading and you’re going to keep thinking about me. and i’ll never think about you again after this moment.
i told my mom i’d watch my little brother while my grandma was in surgery on the 25th which i was sure was sunday. it’s not, it’s saturday, and i work 10 to 4. well i called him to see if i could get meagan to do my shift and then selena to do hers and there just be no midshift today which usually isn’t that much of a big deal. but he said that meagan couldn’t because the reason there were two people is because we were doing a party. i immediately told him it’s fine, my little brother can just go to the hospital with my mom and he said no, it’s not a problem, he was going to have someone else come in early anyways to help with the party so they’ll just cover my shift and it’s not a big deal. i asked are you sure about a hundred times and he said it’s fine, and he hopes everything goes well. he is the sweetest guy.
and i also love working at the levee because i love all the levee workers that come in. one guy just came in and bought energy drinks and told me to expect a lot of kids today as cars 2 came out last night. ohhhhh great haha.
