Seriously, I feel lately I'm robbing Peter to pay Paul. I CANNOT put anything else on my c/c. I've put school stuff on there which cost me a small fortune. Literally, the only thing I've spent on myself that wasn't "needed" was that darn dress. And, I [insert bratty, spoiled voice here] deserve that dress!!! My work is behind a paycheck, and it doesn't catch up until this summer evidently. So, I've had one paycheck this month, and it's only for two weeks. I don't get paid again until the 15th. Talk about budgeting!!!!! Double whammy is due to the first year and trying to research activities, grade papers, do lesson plans, etc., I have had to cut down to one night at my second job. So, I'm losing out on dollarzzzzz I'm used to having. Ugh! I have only paid the minimum payments on things, and I owe LC $400. I won't get him paid back in full until the end of October. Did I tell you I am B-R-O-K-E?!?!?!? Fa sho. I'm not able to throw BFF's shower the way I wanted to, I can't go on my other bestie's 30th bday trip, nor can I put the deposit down on my dress:( All my extra money this month went to the baby shower and what school stuff I could pay for in cash. I owe my soul to everyone right now. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Was it like this for any of you new teachers???
