On Are You What You Wanted To Be When You Grew Up?

I wanted to be an artist. And a fashion designer. And at one point, an English teacher. Now I work in sales in academic publishing and am miserably unfulfilled and wonder where I went wrong in my life. :(((( Sorry, caught me on a bad day!

On Monday Check-in

Good morning! I feel like I didn't have much of a weekend, since I worked at my part time gig both Saturday and Sunday. But I managed to spend $$$ nonetheless, mostly on food and drink. Friday, I got threaded after work (#girlthings) ($13). Then I grabbed dinner with my best friend ($36) before we went to another friend's app launch party ($22 on wineeee). That was more than I wanted to spend on one night, but it was a good time with good friends so worth it? Saturday, I had work most of the day. I bought a sandwich on my break ($4.50). Back home that night, I ordered Thai food off Seamless ($13.25) and watched some Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Sunday, I went for a run, did some laundry, and bought a coffee ($2.50). I also managed to do some grocery shopping ($36.84) before heading back to work for the night. I don't think I'll be able to withstand this part time on top of my full time job much longer, unless my schedule lets up. I talked to the manager about it so we shall see. I didn't estimate on Friday, so I am neither over nor under! TOTAL: $128.09

On I Could Make The 1 Thing Good For a Weekend

I’m going from my full-time job straight to my part-time job today, so I don’t really have time to do one thing… Actually, my part-time job is at a bakery so my 1 Thing will be to bring leftover treats home to my roommates.

On Monday Check-in

Hope everyone had a nice weekend! I went over my estimate again, AS I DO. Friday, my mom came into the city to meet me after work. We grabbed dinner at a bar nearby (her treat), then she accompanied me on my bi-weekly Trader Joe's trip ($35.99). Saturday, I had my first official day at the part-time gig! ! ended up working 9.5 hours and the day flew by. I picked up a few grocery staples on the way home ($7.75). Then I met up with friends for drinks ($35). I took a cab home which I NEVER DO, but I was leaving by myself, it was late, and the UES is so close to my apartment in Queens, geographically-speaking...by subway, not so much ($13.10). Sunday was a much-needed day of relaxation. I slept in, went for a run, watched The Kids Are All Right on Netflix, and did laundry. I spent $2.28 on a Dunkin Donuts hot chocolate and $6 on laundry. At this point, I was a few bucks over my estimate, but still splurged for Chinese food delivery (to keep up with the theme of the day?) ($20). At least I have plenty of leftovers for lunch. TOTAL: $120.12

On Friday Estimate

Yay Friday. Tonight, I need to pick up a prescription refill ($15) and go food shopping ($50). Tomorrow, I have work at my new part time gig. I have to wake up so early, wahhhh (I just started and I think I’m already #overit). Then I may go out for drinks at night ($25). Sunday, I desperately need to do laundry (somebody skipped her 1 Thing yesterday…)($6). Other than that, I’ll probably go for a run and lay low the rest of the day. Total estimate: $96

On Do Wa Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Do 1 Thing

My 1 thing is to do laundry, too! And to straighten up my room (maybe) and buy ice cream (definitely).
