Archive for the ‘checks’ tag
I had to order checks this week. I realized I only had 4 checks left and I wasn’t going to make it through until my personal move out date of mid-April.
Ordering checks made me think about how quickly money leaves my hands and how that can’t be the case for much longer. I enjoy buying little things for people to brighten up their day. I bought cupcakes for my coworkers on Friday because we all had a pretty crappy month last month. I buy fun things for my boyfriend like his favorite gum or NC State stuff to make him smile. (I’m guessing this isn’t working btw since we are ending our relationship.)
Well I’m over it. I realize that I’m buying things to make ME feel better, not them. I wanted cupcakes I didn’t care about everyone else. Yes, they enjoyed them but so what? I need to be saving for my move not trying to make everyone in my office happy for 10 minutes.
Because I’m so far away from my parents (Mom’s in VA, Dad’s in NC) and I have a huge fear of driving large vehicles, I’m going to get some sort of moving cube to move all my stuff. It seems pointless to me to try to drive a U-Haul with my car attached when I don’t even like driving an SUV. I’m hoping I can fit all of my things in my car and in this cube thing. I already know it’s going to cost me a ton but it’s practical and I need practical to reach my goal of leaving NY.
When you have a goal, sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to. This sometimes includes not spending any money on making yourself feel better just because you are down and taking the baby steps towards actually making your goal come true. Achieving your dreams will be the ultimate payoff! So stop sitting there….go mail me some cookies or start making your own goals come true.
