Rebuilding My Savings

May 30th, 2008 at 06:04 am

I finally did it.

I bought a car!

I am now the owner of a Dodge Stratus. It felt wonderful writing the check to dealer for the car. I have practically nothing in my savings, but I will be selling my current car and soon I will have a couple thousand sitting in the bank.

I never realized how much of a security blanket my savings was. I love the car I bought and I think I made a great deal, but I want my money!

I do not like not having so little in the bank. Hopefully I will never have so little in the bank again.

But I am back at work and tomorrow will be spent searching for scholarship money.

The Beginning of Summer

Semester grades are in and I'm very pleased about what I got:

App. Stats: A-
Dance History: A
Calc II: A
Nutrition: B+
Comp. Sci: B

I'm very happy that I got a "B" in C.S. Last semester I got a "C" in CS 135 and I'm very pleased that I was able to get a better grade in a harder course.

Work was interesting today. Another "Banquet Girl" and myself were busy serving 120 people for lunch but apparently there many, many arguments between employees today. One cook quit today leaving the already short-staffed kitchen struggling. We have a lot of banquets and weddings coming up so I really hope they replace the cook (and hire a couple more!).

I got my economic stimulus check about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I was expecting it to be $600 but I got $300 instead. I've spent most of it- I bought a couple of pieces of clothing but most of it was spent on prescriptions. What's left will be saved.

The past week and a half has been very relaxing and I hope the summer continues that way.
