On Doing Your Taxes The Night Before

@Meaghano Ok this is the second time I've accidentally deleted a comment on here. I fail all around. But what I tried writing was that I learned the hard way that you can't just go into a Capital One branch and ask them to do anything with your 360 account. It's astonishingly frustrating and I've had more than one "Ok I am definitely closing this stupid useless savings account" speech to myself.

On That Thing, That Thing, That 1 Thing

My thing is to pay my taxes. Blerg. But actually I can't do that until tomorrow at the soonest, because of paychecks and the need to have money in my account before I write checks for things like taxes. Lamest thing of all the things.

On That Thing, That Thing, That 1 Thing

@readyornot Ha, I always get so defensive when I go there! Because really, I *know* these clothes aren't cool, that's the exact reason I'm getting rid of them. Who would donate their still-cool clothes? Note: I never actually dress in cool clothes, as evidenced by my using the word "cool" 4 times in a 4-sentence post.

On Monday Check-in

Crap I accidentally deleted my post! D'oh!! I don't feel like writing it all over again, but I estimated $236 and ended up spending $183.

On Some Costs Associated With My Roommate’s Boyfriend

@LookUponMyWorks That's what I've ended up doing as well. It felt like regressing back to the days of dorm living, toting a shower caddy to and from the bathroom.

On Friday Estimate

Hmm ok well this is somewhat combining last weekend's expenses with this, because I just payed back my friend about an hour ago. So today: $74 payment to friend for upstate trip last weekend. $37 payment to friend for ticket to the Nets game tonight. $20 for various unhealthy food purchases while at the game and/or a drink afterwards. Saturday: Brunch either Saturday or Sunday morning, $35. $15 on food items to bring to my cousin's game watch get-together for the Gators game (there is a ridiculous amount of basketball watching in my weekend for a person who couldn't care less about the sport). $35ish for a probable dinner out with a friend who is in from out of town. Sunday: Keep it cheap! Hopefully nothing, but I'll estimate $20 because there is always SOMETHING that needs to be purchased. Probably groceries. So, inclusive of my payment for last weekend, my total estimate is $236. Yeesh.

@Stina This is my dream superpower. Now I can't wait to get old.

On Friday Estimate

So appropriate that the splitting expenses for trips post was up today; I'm going upstate with a fairly large group of friends. I'm thinking car rental will end up being about $50. One person dropped out, so I'll probably have to give the host an additional $20ish since we're splitting the house rental cost between fewer people. Food, let's say it'll be another $50. I don't really drink, so the host friend has been great about not including me on payment for booze. Oh, and road trip snackies, since I cannot go more than an hour without some sort of sustenance; that'll probably be about $20 or so. Total estimate for this weekend is $140, but I truly have no idea what the real result will be. I'm really hoping the rain doesn't actually come so that I'm not the one sober person in a house full of antsy drunk adults! It would be so much nicer to be able to go on a hike or something. Oh! I almost forgot that I need to buy my ticket for the Tune-Yards show in DC in June. An additional (and worthwhile) $35. This brings my total to $175.
