Parental Support

The other day I decided to phone my parents to ask for help. I was nervous and ashamed since I make more than both of them currently and yet, here I am, asking for help.

But it was either being prideful and losing more money or humbling myself and saving lots of money in the long run.

I was afraid that my father would say no and look down on me, but he gladly said he would help me. I sighed with relief.

I am going to pay off one credit card and then pay him back + 5% interest. He said I wouldn't have to pay him interest, but I don't think that's fair.

$100 service fee

I am so frustrated right now. We didn't have enough money in the bank to pay for rent so now we are hit with a $100 service fee! I hate it!

I don't get paid until tomorrow. Gosh, that $100 could have gone to credit cards. Why am I constantly swimming???

This too shall pass...

The last couple of days, I have been feeling like going shopping and buying me some nice things. The husband has really helped me with that and reminding me why I'm saving and trying to pay off all the debt we have incurred.

It's a bummer not to be able to go out and buy some cute new clothes whenever I feel like it, but I do have to take responsibility for all the previous purchases that I have incurred. Depressing, but remember all...

This too shall pass!

The yearly annual evaluations came around. Got myself a 3.5% raise.

Fingers crossed for next year. The future is what we make of it!
