day 1789 – pay up

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

day 1773 – take flight

the day didn’t start off well. i packed everything in the morning, everything i needed for the day except for my purse. even though the day started off on the wrong foot, it ended fairly well. officially taken flight to be a part of this club. it was on my small, medium, larrge list and now i’ve taken steps forward. back on the floor to work on things i want to learn and even of things i never heard of. it’s now a priority so i’ll make time to be here, but i’ll keep in mind that flipping and hockey on the same day isn’t a great idea

day 977 – woodburn

image

stopped by woodburn for a quick shopping spree before heading back north. shopping can be a dangerous thing for my poor wallet. i went ahead and bought yet another pair of nike frees to add to my collection. it was a very enjoyable and fulfilling trip here in portland; i found myself preserving for what i wanted to accomplish. i can’t wait to get through that six hour drive and be back in vancity

day 590 – spin at river rock

image

what would i do after friday night training on friday the 13th?? testing out my luck at the casino but it is heart stakingly painful to watch as my stack of chips depletes. i am holding onto my stack of chips and playing it carefully, thinking i make strategic wagers that will win everything back. i didn’t break even but at least i went in with a set amount that i would bet so i knowing i can walk out without breaking my bank

day 448 – paying bills

image

it’s that time of the month to do my finance when bills and receipts are flying all over the place and i am scrambling to gather all. this is when i wished i did more window shopping and less actual shopping and impulsive buys to minimize the hole that is now burning in my wallet. it all comes down to resistance and make sure it doesn’t cut too much into my savings

day 18 – filling up

image

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

day 2 – one happy driver

image

the long wait is over and my wish has become reality,. i am finally the rightful owner of this baby which i have named shadow. of course, it is also going to burn a huge hole in my wallet. nonetheless, i have worked hard for this and earned it, plus a parking spot in the garage and now the rav4 is defaulted to parking in front of the house
