If I don't set an alarm, I will sleep for 10-11 hours, every night. I did it for 3-4 moths while unemployed, and realised that the number of hours I needed never decreased, i.e. I AM SCREWED and will never ever be in that situation where I have enough sleep while also holding down a full time job. I I can function with 5-6 hours, but after several 6 hour nights I am at the point where I can barely put together a coherent sentence. It seems like requiring less sleep is a genetic gift that nobody really talks about.
I love fridays, friday's where it's at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMYWC0tMZsk
@ghechr YES. I was only able to create a budget that I actually stuck to after I started using a mint-esque program that let me download the previous 3 months of reckless spending and see where my money was really going. Turns out that those weeknight $30 dinners out and friday night 'I'll just pick up a lipstick.... and some eyeliner.... and a bottle of wine' shopping expeditions on the way home from work were costing me more than all my other non-rent spending combined. Now I don't worry about my daily coffee (why does budget advice always make us feel so guilty about $20 a week!?) or grocery spending but pay attention to the things that actually make a difference. And to the OP, as someone who lived in London, yeah 40 pounds for a weeknight dinner is a lot.
