My one thing is to make an appointment with an ear/nose/throat doctor. I've been putting it off because the provider is in another city and it will take 3+ buses to get there when I have the appointment.
@ronswansonluva I use the mobile app and like it! I mainly use it to make sure I get plenty of calcium and not too much sugar, but it is amazing to see calories add up. Especially when your breakfast includes two Tbsp of peanut butter :|
@Erica @mbl thank you both so much! I'm even more excited to go now :)
I had wanted to pursue an MFA but couldn't even afford the fee to take the GRE (I know it's not exorbitant, but I was extremely broke even after working two jobs). I don't really regret not going these days, though who knows how I'd feel about it if I had gone.
Aiming for a tame/low spend weekend. I realized that I started reading the book I'm on right now over two months ago (reading a page or two here or there, on buses usually) so I want to finish that $0. My passport finally arrived so I will be booking a flight to Montreal (any recommendations of affordable accommedations/restaurants? I will probably wait until Tuesday to buy my plane ticket though. Grocery run $25 and I really need to stick to that because I did the math and I only have $75 left in my grocery budget for the rest of the month. I also need to get quarters for laundry $20 and mascara $14, I think. I'll go to yoga at least once, and that will be prepaid. Total: $59
@BillfoldMonkey "$60 in the Target vortex" is the perfect way to describe what happens there
I spent way too much money on food this weekend: Friday, made dinner with a friend, $56.62 Saturday, watched soccer ($0) and went to yoga (prepaid, $0) Then I picked up some things to make a fruit salad for an Easter gathering, $24.32 Sunday, dinner with a friend, $53.03, and then $37.71 for the season pass of Mad Men, since I don't have cable. Total spending: $171.68 "Is that all there is?"
@j a y I see what you're saying with just giving them the money, but I don't feel like parents should be able to use providing for their child as some sort of justification to ask for money. Granted, it was generous that they were able to pay for LW's college and not every parent does this. I might be taking this a bit too much to heart though, because I had parents who would defend taking money away from me with, "well, we made sure you had health insurance through college, so you owe us."
I wonder if they are asking for this money *because* they know it exists, and perhaps "you don't pay rent so pay this lump sum because you can" is what the parents are thinking. The LW didn't mention paying rent
@Christy does she take it personally when she's refused the discount? "You're not that pretty, no discount." Not that she isn't pretty, I just think that's pretty bold!
