Weekly money check-up 31-01

January has come and gone, too soon. It´s good I didn´t make any New Year´s resolutions this year, otherwise I´d have seriously let myself down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on car insurance. It has to be done.
2. Today I am thankful for having enough money in savings that I don´t have to worry about not being able to pay my bills.
3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was my new phone. I called my phone company to ask for a free cell phone, which they offer new customers. They politely declined to I politely joined another company that did give me a free phone. A few hours later, the first company called to apologize for the appalling treatment I had recieved and offered me a free phone and a much much better deal. Yay.
4. I will consider this week a success if I finish my coursework and exercise 4 times at least.
5. When I was a kid I wanted to be a mad scientist when I grew up.

Have a nice week!

Weekly money check-up 24-01 and job prospects

Time has definitely rushed these last few weeks! I have not posted a single thing is what seems (and in the blogosphere is) like a lifetime. In my defence I´ll say, though it is not an excuse, I know, that it was one of those periods that can only be defined as SWAMPED. For a few days it felt like the snow sand in the Princess bride swallowed me whole. But I am back now, and full of hope and excitement.

I had a couple of interviews for a position I am kinf of maybe perhaps interested in. It´s not in my field, so that is the main drawback. At this point, I don´t think a good salary is a priority, because there are no jobs that requiere my level of experience, which is, well, lacking. Still, I can´t believe an industry can survive if the new grads in the field have nowhere to go after they get their degree. Because I am living at home until we build up our emergency fund, I would be able to save most of my income, however large, or small, it should be.

Anyways, the company seems quite good and the position is not bad, though I would be overqualified for the job. But a job is a job, so if they offer I´ll accept gladly.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Enough with the rant, and in with the weekly money check up.

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on my car insurance. Ouch!
2. Today I am thankful for being healthy, both physical and mentally.
3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was exercise, though now I ache all over.
4. I will consider this week a success if I  finish my first piece of coursework for my Master´s and get an A.
5. The craft I am currently interested in right now is making coasters for my friend.
