day 2448 – sunroof issues

sunroof has been working fine all along, all of the sudden it stopped working and now i can’t close it. what concerns me is it’s stuck in the tilt position isn’t susceptible to rain or snow. would prefer not to fix it with the dealership so i better get it fixed before my service next week. in the meantime, i’m driving with it taped up which makes a lot of noise at high speeds. all this is making a debt in my financial journey

day 2337 – shopping damage

boxing day made some damage to my wallet. i went all out this year after saying there’s nothing i needed to buy. i bought a computer monitor from bestbuy, a cardigan from lululemon, jackets from bench, shirts and shoes from reebok and some board games from wallet. all of which were discounted, but still adds up to a pretty significant number. i sure hope my paycheck covers for this sudden splurge. i also did a declutter of my wardrobe to make room for my new clothes and justify that i need to update some things

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
