The end of summer
Okay, here goes.
I had a very bad feeling this morning. Brought about by the feeling of a crushing weight of debt that looms over me. That, coupled with the fact that I kept seeing images of autumn and winter and seeing the signs around town of stores getting ready for Christmas sales and Halloween (around here, not so much) didn’t help.
What did help is the fact that while it’s September, it’s still stinkin’ hot out. It was 31 Degrees Celsius today (87 F). Plus, it was humid. So that did help a bit.
However, there’s still the matter of crushing debt and I need to get used to my new pay schedule. In Outlook I was on a monthly wage. Got paid the first of the month and the middle of the month. Now, I’m on an hourly wage. I get paid every two weeks. So I have to schedule all of my bill payments and RRSP contributions accordingly. It doesn’t help that in the past month, I have paid close to two thousand dollars for rent (that’s fifteen days of rent for August, a full month for September, and the full $725 for damage deposit, which is also a full month’s rent). I’m still waiting to see if I get my damage deposit from my old place, which is about $370.
It looks as though over the next month I’ll be feasting on cheap food stuffs. Plus my car won’t be going into the shop as I’d hoped. And I had to let the registration lapse.
All of that has really not had a good affect on me. I’ve been trying to remain calm, but the only thing right now that really helps is work. After I posted this morning about this feeling, I threw myself into my work and the feeling went away. It was a busy day, and it felt really good.
I just had to get this out, I guess.
