All my resolutions are broken….

I am so bad with money. I checked my acct to see if i would have money to buy some pans and I am almost broke again. I’ll have to go and return the books I bought last night, along with the shower curtain. **sigh** I really need to learn how to budget. Hopefully, I have enough money to tide me over until either payday or when I get my financial aide check. I wonder if I can hit mom and dad for some money. Or better yet, for some pots and pans.
Anyway, I really want my computer back. I how that the speakers were broken, so I don’t have to pay anything. If it is the sound card, then I wont be able to get my computer back until payday. I might go crazy. It sucks not having a computer or a TV. I guess it’s good cause I am forced to read, which i need to do more of anyway. But I’m also thinking alot more, and that’s not always so good. O.K. I am tired (lifting boxes of paper and notebooks tires one out easily) so I need to go home to get the stuff to return and then go home and take a bath. Ahhh, I can take a bath now since the tub is clean. I’d better enjoy it while I can

So I get this call…

from this cruise agency in Florida. Apparently, I was checking my AOL email (which I really have to cancel this week) and there was an email to win a trip or something. Apparently I filled it out cause I had won a trip to Florida, The Bahamas, and a cruise for 10 days/9 nights. The cost of the everything was over $2000, but all I would have to pay is $349. So i said, “Well, I’m a college student but, i sure that…” I never got to finish; has soon as he heard ‘College Student’, he said good bye and hung up.
Now, my thing is, so what that I’m a college student. That doesn’t mean that I got no money. I think at least he coould have tried to sell me whatever he was going to sell. It’s funny, but it also hurt a little. Actually Mew and I were talking about this because on forms that you have to fill out your income level, Mew has moved up to the second lowest one, and I’m still at the $15,000 and under category. Oh well….
