$1274.17 towards cc debt

September 30th, 2006 at 02:58 am

I was checking my ING account and notice that I actually tansferred a total of $1274.17 in order to pay down cc debt, so I guess I am making some progress not to mention all the extra's I have paid thus far, that was in a different account. I had about $8000.00 in debt when I started working on gettig it paid down/off in December of 2005 so looks like I really should be happy

I almost forgot

September 29th, 2006 at 03:12 am

Well I did forget, the college allos you to pay 50% the first part of the semester for tuiion and 50% midway through. Well I forgot I owed $370.30 and had to add that to the CC thank God payday is next week. But I did pay $2.60 on the high interest CC. Seems like when you make a step forward you always go back two Frown

September 28th, 2006 at 12:39 am

I went to the mall to get my free undies and past through Macy's I kept looking at one particular dress and then placed a skirt on hold, but I did not get them Smile Boy did this take some discipline but I am happy I just kept asking myself "need or want" " no cc debt or cc " house or live at home the rest of my life" needless to say I will not be back tomorrow to pick up the skirt. They'll be others

I came home on break to fix a quick lunch (sandwich) before heading to class well some one ate the last slice of cheese.

Family and money

September 26th, 2006 at 02:59 am

I hate lending anyone money but I remember the times where I barely had anything so I went ahead and let my sister borrow a $100.00. I know I may have mad a mistake but I can stand the pinch. She will pay me back but when she says Friday she means not this Friday but 5 Friday's from now (lol). However, I did tell her to keep $60.00 for the broadband service that I have on her account ( it was cheaper this way for me) so she really owed me $40.00


September 26th, 2006 at 02:53 am

I was told once that one must atleast put in two hours of studying a day for each class taken I agree, but since i was unable to do any at work (full-time job) today I had to putin my two hours tonight and I just finished at 10:45 so I am reading emails, blogging and just plain 'ol surfing (I am on break ) and I will look over my notes in a few for about an a half I totally forgot what it was like

No spend day

September 26th, 2006 at 02:50 am

Today was a no spend day, my co-worker treated me to lunch that was nice. So I decided to add a dollar to the challenge and pay my CC a buck. I wanted to see if it would allow such a small transaction and I was really surprise it did so I am down by a buck

New total $2392.34

Hamburger helper

September 25th, 2006 at 12:38 am

I bought some hamburger helper for the first time (taco) but I did not care for it. So since i spent almost two dollars I guess I have to gobble it up. Some tims thoough, if you let food sit over night it tends to taste better the next day, we'll see.

Not to sure

September 24th, 2006 at 05:37 am

as you all know I am entering or have enter my junior year of college. So any way I am thinking about joing the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), which is basically a networking group to help college grads land jobs; the cost however is $75.00 a year. There is also so credentialing involved but I may wait until the fall of 2008 in which I plan on interning then. we'll see, Tuesday I am meeting with the dean over the program I am in maybe he can give me some insight. My goal is work in the hospital as an administrator

Pretty Good Day

September 24th, 2006 at 02:42 am

I sat around today until it was time for me to go to work and then when I got here the first 2 hours were like Grand Central Station. I forgot today was a holiday weekend and every cotton head in the building was out (lol)and then it finally died down where I could get some studying done. Wow but atleast I was able to kick back until 2pm and just relax...basically spend no money today

Test 1

September 23rd, 2006 at 03:45 pm

First test for the semester was on Tuesday and he instructor just posted the grades I got an 87.6 I was a little dissappointed since I did study for a while but the last few days I did not review my notes. I hate when you answer questions/take a test and think you missed only 1-3 questions and when you get the test back in some cases just the grade you missed more than you expected. Gosh I hope I do well on the lab assignment we will see
