I have managed to spend over $200 on clothes Frown and I know a lot has to do with the fact of not keeping track of my finances and now it is time to get back on track ASAP.
On a different note today was a good day at school I manage to start my paper and get my abstract done (1 page) and won't be able to start the rest until next week and I have gathered additional info from my practicum site . The goal is to have it done by the weekend.
I am surprised when my mom gave me $40 towards helping with the water bill, she is one who likes to hold onto her money and yours and yes I am thankful. My uncle also gave me $40, the water bill came to 60 (they have increased the rate by 22%) any how I have an extra $20 yippie

Off to a bad start

Ok I get up to head to my intern. First my alarm sounds and I decided to lay down an extra 10 minutes. Next thing I know I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I am able to leave right on time in order to get to the hospital bright and early. Next I am waiting for my appointed time. When I finally go in ,the woman I spoke to tell me I am not suppose to start until next week and that she informed me of this. WHAT!!! I say to her in a polite manner, (as much as possible without trying to sound to annoyed) "I sent you an email to confirm this week" she says "you are to start after your first class and an email was sent" or something like that. So I smile and say I'll see you next week, but I am ticked off. So I am thinking maybe I misunderstood, but nope here is a copy of the email I sent her, dated Thursday May 7th:

Good morning C,
I just wanted to confirm that I will be starting next Monday and Wednesdays from 8am-12:30 for the summer internship


Her response:
Yes Amber. I will see you next week.Thanks

Now did I misunderstand?

I was so upset I forgot to stop at the college to give blood. later I head to class and it was great but then when I got home to down load the assignment windows media player there is no sound arrrrrgh, so I can't even start my assignment and apparently this is common with Vista, so I down load real player and the same thing OMG!. I emailed my professor and now have to wait for a response
So it really wasn't a good day

Off to a new start

Ok classes start tomorrow, I am both excited and somber. Excited because starting class tomorrow which makes it's official that this will be my last semester and after working so hard would be finally a college graduate. hmmmm I love how that sounds, lol Somber because I start my internship tomorrow and am hoping that it leads to a job in the end. For some reason I am not nervous which is a good thing, normally I am very nervous when ever I start a job but this seems like I belong butterflies what so ever. Strange
On a different note, I did some shopping this weekend and spent a ton, tomorrow or Tuesday I will calculate just how much; however, there is one shirt for $8 that I will be returning
Also my uncle really went out today for all the moms, we had so much food and music, I saw my nieces and nephews whom I have not seen in months, it felt really good.
Well off to bed, want to well rested for my first day
Good night every one and if you missed my previous post Happy Mother's Day Smile

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Today was suppose to be a NSD but I just remembered I should make a payment to the dentist so I left C a message on their voice mail to charge my cc $25, actually this will be charged tomorrow so literally this is still a NSD

Today was officially a no spend day, I am trying to get back in the swing of things. Unfortunately though I can not add to my challenge

Am I wrong?

OK I go and get my free meal from KFC which only allow one coupon per person, so I decide I am having this for dinner. My mom comes home and I give her a coupon and tell her she should go. She then ask me where my meal is I say in the fridge her response "well you better give it to me because I'm hungry" my response "no that is for my dinner tonight eat the left over ham" Now what am I suppose to do? give her my dinner and go back to KFC because she doesn't feel like going...this is a peeve of mine with her, I don't mind sharing but do I have to share every Christ thing I am eating? Even if it is a small piece of cake and I do mean small, she wants it. It drives me crazy because she doesn't even have to be hungry she only wants it because it's there. It has gotten to the point that if I buy a kids meal and we all know how small of a portion that is (I don't eat much) that I go to the park to eat so that I can eat in peace. I hate this, I really do

Just went and got my free meal from KFC which was great, I tasted a small piece and am saving the rest for dinner tonight.

Ok this post is not about finances but about people in my life.
First my sister, even though she has not asked to borrow money she may as well had. For months my mom and I have been taking her to and from the train station and she has yet to offer any gas money. It's really not even the point about the gas it's the point that she doesn't even offer or maybe ask her sons once a week to pick her up. I'm simply tired and so is my mom, it not like she lives close. I know if she gave me $5 she would be short on her rent or lights or something, the point is just offer let me say no and ask your kids some times
Next a friend of mine, boy it is true when you see some one and think they are doing great you simply really don't know. Ok C is behind on her mortgage which is going into foreclosure, her lights were turned off and her car which was paid off she took out a loan and is now behind. Her husband was living with her and now he is gone (she was behind prior to him leaving). After being informed that her lights were off I felt really bad and sent her $20 I figured she could at least buy dinner or something I know it's not much. Anyhow she called her dad up who asked her to get all her finances in order (totals) basically he wired her $15k to pay her bills. What does she do? Buy a new laptop, fix her desk top computer, a new Iphone, buy mother day's card and gift cards her her mom, aunts and cousin---gift card? come on. Now I am pissed because I sent you $20 that I myself don't have and you basically waste the money your dad gave you. I said to her pay off your truck which was about $7k and I know her dad included this amount in the money he sent her, she tells me she can't live in a truck. Umph I say call the bank and try and get this resolve the longer you wait the more fees they are tacking on(regarding her mortgage). She says she knows. I am thinking to myself you have got to be kidding me. The longer you hold onto this money the more you're going to nickle and dime through it. I even said to her go down to the bank, in person and try and get this thing resolve, did she budge? Of course not. If I came into $15k I would pay my car off and the 1 cc that I owe. Plus she is not working. Then on Sunday she went to some festival she has dined out every day for the last few weeks and then she gets upset because her dad is calling questioning what she has done with her money...unbelievable

Not much

Hi all,
I'm just checking in, know it's been awhile but facebook has consumed me. I am still unemployed, but am really not looking (I have put in some applications). I got a B in my finance class and a C in my management class Frown
hmmmm what else, my savings is still fairly high but for the last few weeks I have been dining out so that has got to come to an end, meaning I have got to keep up with my blogs here.
Umph I start classes next week and as well as my internship and after that I will be graduating...yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So that's it for now and thank you Ralph for reminding me that I have a family here Smile
