On Friday Estimate

I just bought groceries yesterday because tonight I'm going out to a winery $ 30? and tomorrow I'm having people over. Potentially $10 more for something I forgot. I must clean my home because that has not happened in a looooong time. That should be free. Laundry today or tomorrow $ 5. job apps $ 24?. writing is generally free. $70. This is going to be a no save month.

On The Argument Against the Penny

@EMD unsure if pot is legal in Quebec, (different legal system than rest of Canada), but in Ontario it is decriminalized. It is, in fact, how I know when I am home. That the air smells faintly of pot. (I live in rural midwest now. If I smell anything sketchy it's probably legal gunfire).

This month: not so awesome. Spent some of my travel savings, so that's ok, I guess. I now have $5150 in savings.

On Friday Estimate

today. Have spent 12$ on job apps, likely will spend 36$ by the end of tomorrow. $8 laundry. Having friends over for brunch tomorrow. Probably will make at least one impulse food purchase before then. $10. Cleaning should round out the weened. Let's say $ 55-60. And I can't impulse buy on amazon until I have all my current orders delivered, which, since some of them are not fulfilled by amazon (because slightly cheaper/I am a horrible person who prefers amazon to walmart...)

On "Is There Anything More Ironic Than Coming to Live in Des Moines"

@angry little raincloud I live in a small town for my jerb. It is the whitest place I have ever been. It is only designed for young couples with kids, not young single people or people w/o kids. SUPER WEIRD.
