On a different note I got an "B" in my accounting class Smile I was so excited because I could have sworn that I was hanging on my a thread

No computer again

June 23rd, 2008 at 02:36 pm

I just purchased this new laptop and now I can not log onto the internet Frown I have to check all my emails at work which sucks. Took it into to Bestbuy whose Geeksqaud has no clue. I told the guy it was the drivers and I was afraid to delete anything but he wanted to do it his own way cost me $53 and they still have it, he told me to give him 30 minutes (yeah right). Thank goodness it is still under the manufacture's 30 day warranty. Can you believe he wanted me to take it home, what and it is still covered and when I still can't connect pay you $100, I don't think so
I did not eat out today so I added $4 to my EF and another $35 because I washed and colored my own hair. Not sure what the balance is but will double check later
On a different note I added $3 to my challenge from Pinecone
New total $4404.42
Oops I forgot I got a "B" in that marketing class, thank goodness. It was going to be the death of me

not much

June 14th, 2008 at 11:03 am

Well my brother called to borrow $500 so I loaned him the money. I have no problems with him reimbursing me; my sister is a different story
I also checked to see if grades were posted for my online class and again the professor still has not posted them but he changed my grade on the first assignment giving me an extra 1.5 points. Why I do not know, but I am happy


May 17th, 2008 at 08:16 pm

I finally built up the courage to apply for the $50k grant for first time home owners, well printing out the paper work and filling it out. It is just a matter of turning it in on Tuesday, since I work all day Monday. Even if I do not get the full amount I would be happy with anything.
On a different note I am little annoyed I ordered one of my books on half.com that stated soft cover and it came today but was the international version. When I emailed the seller she said soft cover meant international which is not true, I have ordered and bought soft cover textbooks both on line and at the college bookstore that were not international and now I think she does not want to give me a refund, but I am waiting for her response and if she doesn’t she will definitely get a negative feedback. She should have noted that the book was an international version like every other seller
Furthermore, the swelling from my tooth has not gone down and I have been on antibiotics since Thursday, now I can say I am still experiencing pain but not as much as before. I don't know if this is from the pain meds or not but what I can say is I AM SICK OF THS &*%%& TOOTH ACHE!!!!!!!!!

Not much to report

May 17th, 2008 at 02:59 pm

I still have a tooth ache so I won't be going to the baby shower, nor will I be going to help set up for the Cystic Fibrosis walk. I have been in the bed pretty much all day, but I need to head out to Publix for bread and o.j. I was able to complete my assignments for my marketing class but need to start reading the next two chapters and I just don't feel like it. But I'll see how I am feeling later

$10 JC Penney coupon

May 10th, 2008 at 09:44 am

I used my $10 JCP coupon to buy a babyshower gift and only spent $5. I am so upset because I forgot to order the gift card from mypoints that way I would not have spent a thing, but I guess $5 is better than $15. Either way I saved money. So the $10 saved went to the challenge. I have not been adding like I use to and want to get back on board with that.
I used the cc today to pay for my tuition and payday is next week so I will pay it in full then. I basically wanted to use it to redeem the points. I also bought my textbook for the second accounting class that is needed Frown (accounting is a lot of work) but any way the book only cost me a total of $8.09. $4.10 for the book and $3.99 for shipping. I am so glad that some one informed me about these different website that sell textbooks I saved about 90% on books each semester using these sites
Seems like it is a good thing I did not get into the summer practicum because I just reviewed the course syllabus for the account class and there is a lot of work, I hope I get my book next week so I can get a jump start on the assignments; classes start the end of June. For the marketing class I will start reading today at work

I did not get in

May 9th, 2008 at 06:39 pm

To the summer practicum that is (intership).So now I will not graduate until the spring of 09 Frown I am so ticked off because I have been working on getting things set up for the summer and started on my intership well before the summer, but since I am not in the program then there is no need for me to work so hard.
I won't stress as much to finish so I will take two classes in the summer, two in the fall and then two in the spring and graduate then. At first I was a little upset (ok a lot) but then I thought about it and said things happen for a reason. The woman who was over seeing my internship really did not know what she wanted me to do and I really did not care for anyway plus after I completed my internship I would not have a job so it's best that I intern at a place in which I could land a job
On a different note I got $3 from pinecone and added that to the challenge.

Another A

May 7th, 2008 at 09:36 am

Yep I got another A, I am like jumping for joy. I got the A in accounting and mind you this was the third time that I have take this course. Yesterday's final I got an 92. I am soooo happy. Now I am reading for my summer intern and I am a little nervous but hopefully all will be well


May 6th, 2008 at 05:43 pm

I was shocked when I saw my grade for a course I am taking ( Planning and Organization in health care) I got an A- I could not beleive it because I did not do too well on the tests. I am waiting on my final grade from the accounting class, I am positive I will have an A in that class as well, but we'll see

Great day again

March 31st, 2008 at 06:10 pm

Two days in a row I have had a great day. Today was a no spend day other than gas of $30 which I do not count. I got up early enough to make breakfast, took my lunch and snacks for work; in addition; to having left overs for dinner Smile
Then I headed to the library because I was having some problem with my accounting, I was able to complete chapter 10's homework Smile other than the hand out in which I will tackle tomorrow but it felt good to be able to understand what I was doing wrong. I also had $7 left over from last pay period in checking account 1 so I added that to the EF and looks like I will have $85 left from last pay period in checking account number 2 on Thursday so that will be added to my car/tuition fund


March 27th, 2008 at 07:36 pm

well I got the intern position. I will be pretty much working as th director of activies. Which is fine with me because I can pretty much work my schedule as I see fit. And since I already work at a senior facility, I can use some of their ideas and incorporate that with my internship.
In regards to my part-time job I got a call from my boss' boss assistant to set up a phone conference. I thought a phone conference you have got to be kidding me, you are too busy to meet with me or my concerns are not that important that you can do a quick conference call. I was so annoyed I just left her a message that I did not want a phone conference and to forget about the entire thing

More good news

March 24th, 2008 at 06:40 pm

I may have a summer intern at a senior living facility Big Grin My major is health administration and I had 3 choices 1. department of health 2. hospital and 3. nursing facility. I really enjoy working with seniors that is why I am still at my part time job,and the only reason. Any how my professor gave me a contact name of some on who runs an assited living facility and she contacted me for an interview on Thursday she was so excited but I became more excited when I look them up on the web and found out it was a senior living facility I got so excited. Keep your fingers crossed
I am soooooo excited

Wasn't too bad

March 23rd, 2008 at 07:52 am

I went in yesterday to my part time job they actually had some one on call in case I did not show...like I would really not show. It wasn't too bad but I did let one of the residents know what was going on and she was just as upset as I was but oh well. I figured they will be trying to get rid of me real soon so I will just stick it out and try and sock away my checks until they do. I finally applied for a summer intern, I have definately got to get on the ball with that...but haven't heard a thing
I was also able to get some studying in (accounting)and I have still not tackled my taxes Frown I have no idea why because I am due for a refund
For the last week I was able to add $8 to my challenge and $8 to the cc for brown bagging it, unfortunately I had to buy buy breakfast because my uncle managed to eat an entire half loaf of my bread with his dinner. But I will not go there regarding that


March 11th, 2008 at 12:02 pm

Very slowly I am getting back on track. Today I made my breakfast so $2 went to the challenge and I also had luch at home and $2 was paid on the CCs. I got about 20 minutes of studying in and will be heading to class later, just happy that I was able to complete my assignments

Much better today

March 10th, 2008 at 07:51 pm

Today was a much better day. I did not eat out at all so $2 went towards the CC and I got a $6 check for a survey that I must have completed in which I totally forgot about but was happy for. So I added $6 to my challenge
I still have not heard a word from that idiot boss of mine, maybe she is thinking of a way to fire me.
I finally sat down and did my homework for accounting since class is tomorrow, I feel comfortable other, than a few questions but other than that all is well on the home front

Well I am still alive

February 28th, 2008 at 05:25 pm

I am still alive, I know it has been a while but I have been so busy with my accounting class. I actually got an 89 on the second testt Smile so I am really excited. And you guys will be proud I managed to pay off another cc ($475) and add to my challenge and not eat out for two days. I think this is great especially since I have not been blogging for a while
New total for the challenge $7454.54
