[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Okay, I'm officially poor now. Totally skint. I just used my $2 coin that carry in my gym bag for the lockers to buy coffee. I have no cash until Saturday.
I guess it's not that bad - I have enough food in the house to keep me going for a long time. I have a bit of petrol in the car and don't really need to use that anyway. I don't really need cash but it's nice to have some in case of emergencies or to buy stuff like coffee.
You know what really sucks - I got that big, shiny cheque last week but because it's overseas money, it has to sit in my account for 28 days. It's there but it's not available. It's like prick tease money. It dances at me and taunts: you can see me but you can't have me.
If anyone has any ideas on how to make fast cash, let me know. Not ideas that involve dirty old men and street corners though...
I started back at school last night. Editing, woohoo! That's sarcasm by the way. My sister is a total comma nerd. I showed her the subject outline and she was totally jealous about my learning. I told her she could do the subject in my place but I don't get so het up about the semicolon.
I did something that might have been a bit silly. We have to each do a presentation over the course of the year so I volunteered to do mine in week 4. That's in 3 weeks time folks. At least it will be done and I can wag class and go to to Monday night running training instead. Am I the only person who gets their subject outline on the first day and marks off the classes they can wag?
On Friday, I've got Short Story which will be much more exciting. I hope.
Arrggh this Editing subject is getting to me already. I can see many errors in this entry but I'm going to rebel and NOT fix them. So there.
It sucks when you're broke... Can u not pay a small fee to have the cheque cleared even if it o/s money? Sometimes different bank people tell u different stuff.
Quick, easy money = EBAY!!
Sorry to hear about your brokeness. I too can lend you a tenner if need be. :)
Ha, and I am such a good editor now that I forget to end a sentence with a full stop! Ahem.
Sorry to hear about the lack of funds! How annoying waiting for a check to clear when you need cash now!
Send me your address, I'll send ya $2 for coffee !!! ha ha ha. Might not get much tho, Kiwi money is worth less than Aussy money.... shame. Hope you can hang in there till that cheque clears. Don't recommend street corners eitha.
Oh shame, I just read the other comments and feel CHEAP now, cos I only offered you $2.... maybe I can stretch to a tenner as well !
Sorry to hear about your skint-ness. Can you sell some books at a book exchange? Or some cds off to a second hand record shop? I used to do this heaps when I was perpetually skint, found all the things I didn't like and didn't have any time for and flogged them. I didn't get too much but it tided me over until the money rolled in again.
what about one of those cash converters type places? too bad they don't give money for donating blood here, like they do in other places! lol. i hate being broke!!! i know what it is like.
Look down the back of the couch. There's sure to be at least $4 in silver there.
Mmm...how about eBay. Got anything to eBay? Books, clothes, bags...
