Job Changes

A year ago, I was just a few days out from my current job, and now, I am facing my anniversary and some pay increases. Time flies! I think what’s ultimately important is that I need to not increase my spending along with my increased income. It won’t be a ton of money, it never […]

Ambling

People keep asking me “what’s new?” and there really isn’t anything. Lately it’s just been more of the same, more of the same, more of the same. I am fucking busy. I am fucking wiped. My alarm is for 4:30 every morning. Depending on how well I planned my day prior to that moment, that […]

The Low-Quality Trap

When I go grocery shopping, I’m like ‘budget Budget BUDGET’ at all cost (ha!) and don’t really pay attention to quality. “TEN DOLLARS for a fancy pasta sauce!” I decry. And then I’ll pay 1.5 times that for a plate of fancy pasta at a restaurant and it feels like “I DESERVE THIS.” So, since […]
