my black friday shopping arrived at my work today. first time in my life i’m using a phone not made by sony. it was a big decision to part ways, but not a hard choice. the pixel 3 stood out from the rest, though the cost also stood out amongst it’s competitors. i told myself i wouldn’t use it before my case and tempered glass arrives. i did well not to unbox it and fidget with it during work
settled the winter term paychecks so me and my instructors can get paid for our services delivered more than three months back. getting paid for killarney is always so troublesome since they’re nit-picking on the smallest detail. the amount on my cheques doesn’t even justify how much time i spend doing the payrolls. glad winter term is finally dealt with, but that means it’s just about time to send in the spring invoices so i can start calculating payroll all over again
it’s all or nothing, like gambling at the casino. the only difference is i am in total control of the outcome. i think i give myself too much pressure cause i have my own standards and cannot afford to lose. i’d be performing not only in front of the grandmaster, the instructors that’s taught me from the very beginning, but also the students that i have been teaching. saved up all my scholarships so i could use it altogether at times like this. saying goodbye to all the awards, now i am feeling poor all over again but at least i am using it for something worthwhile
after two months delay, the money finally arrived in the hands of the rightful owner. i waited far too long for this paycheck i was afraid my bank account would dry up before i would have any to refill. this is going to save some of my crazy spendings since christmas holidays. paydays are the best, often forget how good it feels to hold the cheque in my hand, or multiple cheques in this case
piling on those expenses many of which i don’t know if they are considered necessities. my bank account certainly took a plunge with the recent credit card activity but maybe it’s all for a good cause. should probably limit those impulse purchases and shopping sprees. online shopping made easy, too easy
unexpectedly heavy taxes and customs duties charges on these imported goods that came from united kingdom across the many seas and oceans. despite the heavy fees, we are so stoked to have new uniforms arrive, can’t wait until they get screenprinted and ready for action. time to train hard to live up to them!!
received this in the mail. as if my tuition, services, other fees and extremely overpriced textbooks and materials wasn’t a large enough donation for you!! taking twenty credits with overloaded six courses a term, working part time and earning just enough for daily expenses while trying to maintain a respectable gpa is not easy at all. students are always poorest. ubc amazes me in many different ways
premium fuel for my car is extremely expensive with the skyrocketting vancouver gas prices, more expensive than fuel for me. but my car must eat, even if i don’t eat. and this is when i really miss my acura when i could fill in regular grade fuel. hoping i treat my car well and it will treat me well in return
