Bite Me!

I feel like I woke up ready to tackle the day; ready to blog all about yesterday with vigor.  But then  Thursday pimp-slapped me in the face and said "Bite me!"

I'm going to go home and wallow; basking the in the crapiness that was my day.  Reminding myself that, yes, someone really did say "I'm going to pray for you to find a husband because you need someone to bring discipline to your life."  Pondering back over the words that I suck because I'm single and somehow that makes me a failure - as if somehow I'd missed the memo that I was single?  I'll possibly spend some time thinking about people who have it really easy, financially, and how many of them have no clue what it's like to be strapped at times; oh, and how not having a brand new car seems more like a status symbol than that of being a wise choice financially. 

Today was a day of non-encouraging words.  That's always fun, especially when you barely made it through yesterday (which was a normal day to most, but to SOME it may have been the anniversary of when their Mother died).  You know just the usual.

I'll dust myself off and stand up again, because that's what I always do.
I'll believe that tomorrow will be a better day - all the while knowing that I'm basically just holding on and waiting for the weekend.  Come Saturday I will start regaining my momentum.  As for today, not so much.

I'm promoting a new expression. That's as dumb as Fox News (re "I'm going to pray for you to find a husband because you need someone to bring discipline to your life.").
Simply wrong on so many levels.

Last time I went to the states, it was for a wedding, and I was amazed that everyone there had professional level cameras (not to mention giant new cars) they didn't know how to use... This one guy in particular had equipment rivaling that of the professional wedding photographer. But in discussing with him, I found out he was going to be in debt for most of his life and didn't know how to use it.

::hands you a duster:: Here use my duster, it's dual purpose: it has a heavy bamboo core for whack-bonking ( Thursdays.

Thanks, Alesa! I don't have whiney posts...well….ever really, so I felt like *one* would be understandable. Back in Jr. High I might have spent the evening blasting Green Day and feeling like the whole world was against me and just didn’t “get” me! Thankfully I’m a little more grown-up now. (Although I won’t lie, that duster sounds useful!) I found that a hot bath and some reflection did the trick. I know who I am and I don’t need to feel ashamed of it!

Funny you should mention the debt thing. Americans are horrible at competitive living. I’ve gotten myself into debt, but I don’t have anything to even show for it! Ha ha ha! All that to say, this mentality of living outside of your means is just awful! As one of my “52 Things” I have decided to take a class; this class (ironically) happens to be a finance course! It began this past Monday and in the week ahead I get my books and materials etc. I’m really exited about it. I’m not ashamed of not being wealthy, or for not coming from a wealthy family, I was raised better than that. At times as a child we went without, and you know what? I’m better for it! I’d rather have an old car that gets me where I need to go and allows me the freedom to buy my friends dinner, than having a shiny new car that I can’t afford and will worry about ever scratch or spill! I’m looking forward to what this course is about and will be blogging on it sometime in the near future.
