Anyone keeping score will note that my life is not entirely on the “up” side of things. A quick recap: No job, no school, no money for school, isolated rural area with no money for gas, debt up to my eyeballs – and as of last night, no boyfriend.
My first urge upon hitting rock bottom is to zip across the country and try and patch up what I can (and thanks to Consumerism Commentary, I found a great site for airfare). But without a cent to my name – in fact, with negative cents to my name – I feel completely trapped. Powerless to do anything but sit at home, chasing after job offers that don’t result in call-backs. I can’t hop on a plane and reconcile the last good thing I felt like I had… for a very strange reason.
This blog is what keeps me from whipping out my credit card and using the spare credit left on it to purchase a plane ticket. The idea that I would have to log on and admit that amongst all of my financial troubles, I plopped down $200 to fly across the country, is what stops me from doing it.
I haven’t decided yet whether this is a good thing.
