activate cheap mode

Oops… I did it again. I spent too much money. I am realizing the issues my wallet has with senior dead days. When there’s nothing to do, you have to do something. And doing something usually involves opening the wallet up. My last two paychecks are going to be quite delayed given that I forgot to turn the last week’s one in and the one for this week will end next week (when I’ll be long gone from Houston) and it will take one more week to process. So basically I’m looking at no money from there for about 3 weeks. That’s a damn long time.

Hence, I am going to counter this by activating cheap mode. Unfortunately there will be a slight hitch in the plans since I will have to pay for (a) storage this month and (b) various graduation things (such as a Baker stole). So that’s more money going out. 🙁 Boooooo…. Let’s see how it goes. Luckily one of my credit cards has a low APR so I can actually use my credit line a bit. Hopefully I should get my moving bonus from NI soon as well, although my last few emails to my HR rep and manager have yet to be answered. I guess times are pretty busy.

Oh, I did do something cool today, which was that I drove on the highway for the first time. Jesús was the accomplice and despite my suggestions to write a will before he volunteered, he did come and it was not bad at all. In fact, it was a lot better than driving on roads! I see now why people like highways so much.

Apart from that I’m pretty much ready to graduate. Woot. Anyways, I guess that’s all for now. I just wanted to gripe a bit. 😛 Now I am going to get some dinner and then I should definitely start packing. Yeah… still haven’t started that. Oops.
