Hello expensive month!!
I partied a bit too much. That's it thats all. My entire explanation is actually that simple.. too much partying. I mean I'm 23 right and I wanna enjoy my friends. But a night out is expensive. Especially the one I had in Toronto. I had dropped $50 before even starting to dance.. and I LOVE DANCING so I'm usually the first on out there... BAD NEWS BEARS!!
But I have a plan for November. Lots of outdoor/free activities. Lake front walks. Hikes to the waterfalls behind the school. That kinda stuff because the cash money is drying up fast.. I'm down to about $2000 which will actually more than get me thru until the new year as I'll be staying at my dad's most of December and be working over the holidays! But it's still difficult not having a real income..
Although I did start my job. I'm very excited. I'll only be working about 3 hours a week so with placements and holidays and everything factored in, I'll be bringing in about $300 over the next 6 months, which seems kinda pathetic but I'm happy for the money...My title: "Student Technology Assistant" is fancy speak for "gets to play with the Smart Board during breaks!!" This makes me happy because Smart Boards are becoming SUPER popular in schools and knowing how to use one EXTREMELY well is a great selling point!
On a mildly non-financial point. My friend who went to France is back and he was supposed to visit next weekend. But suddenly he has no money because OSAP took its payment from his account.. the money he had saved to buy the bus ticket here was snatched by OSAP (stupid, stupid osap). I'm devastated... while he was gone he sent me numerous letters.. like HANDWRITTEN LETTERS and a bunch of cute, romantic messages. And since landing in Canada yesterday, my phone has barely stopped buzzing with texts from him.. all until he gave me the news (and I got super angry at him).. so I was floating on a cloud and now I feel like I'm at the bottom of a deep pit. Maybe he'll figure something out. I want to tell him I can meet him half way if he can make it half way.. but I want him to get himself here, to make the effort, so I know he cares. So I know he WANTS to be here. But is that me testing him? Is that me being unfair? I don't know.. I really just don't know. I hope he figures it out..I really do hope! [edit: after rereading this to check for errors I realize how ridiculous I was being and sent him an apology. I still want him to figure it out but I can't be mad at him for paying his bills. I'm really just disappointed I may not see him as soon as anticipated.]
Thats all for now,
