Double shift Tuesday is officially over. Winter break is here, but I’m practically spending almost every day working one if not both part time jobs. I’m aiming for a third part time job or even a new part time job to replace one of the two I already work for. Tuition rates are ridiculous and bills are piling. Wouldn’t it be nice to be handed some cash? Then again, it is better to earn than to inherit.
After a long day..I get to unwind and be silly. Excuse the hashed out look, but this is me. Silly and all. :)
“I may be financially broke, but I am forever rich with positive vibes and hope.”
Goodnight tumblr folk.
For the first time ever I utilized UH-Manoa’s payment plan..$1000 + out of my tiny account for the next 3-4 months to pay off. I’m gonna have to watch my spending and try to pick up more hours before the fall semester starts. So much for a summer vacation. Hello to a 6-7 day work week pulling 8.5-12 hour shifts. Sometimes I wish I was fortunate to be financially set, but then I realize how blessed I am to have to work hard for the things in my life. It keeps me grounded and humble. These challenges can only make us stronger. Must keep going! I will get a Bachelor degree..eventually.
This is what happens when you slack on FAFSA..PLEASE GIVE ME THE PELL GRANT! >_<
The struggles, the heart break, the stress.. Don’t run from them. Face it all head on and rise above. Have faith, stay determined, and persevere!
These situations are so easily avoidable. -___-
So here’s an update. I’ve been trying to do my summer school homework for a while. I’m just not interested at the moment.
Physical therapy is causing me to take a step back from my marathon training. I have to go twice a week, which are the days I’m off. The full time job is awesome, but it just isn’t cutting it financially. Don’t get me wrong, I am uber thankful for the medical and dental benefits..I just feel like I’m living paycheck to paycheck. The part time job at the restaurant is just..hanging by a thread. So many servers are leaving. In my opinion, the restaurant is going in a downward spiral. I’m gonna miss a few of the servers terribly. I spent over two years devoting my time with them.
I am investing whatever time I have left to another possible part time job, but I’m barely making any time for myself. That leaves me with a lack of time for friends and loved ones. Juggling this is chaotic, but I am trying my best! Doesn’t help that I got into a bumper accident today too.. -___- So glad no one was hurt and it was just a tap. PLEASE DON’T GO UP INSURANCE! I don’t want to sacrifice more time to work to pay for your ridiculous costs!
…My mom just told me a few minutes ago that she wasn’t giving me rice. She says I’m getting fat. Thanks for the concern mom! I already feel like a fatty since Aunt flow is visiting! HELLO IT’S CALLED BEING BLOATED MOM! My body cannot help but swell.. She pin pointed how my arms are getting big. Seriously?! I haven’t been lifting! I’m trying to get back to my gym and work out routine. Sorta hard with my body feeling super weak. I refuse to revert to my old huge body! NO WAY AM I GOING BACK TO 190lbs! I guess this just means I have to work harder and become more disciplined.
NLN in less than two weeks. Just got the book… Midterms for my summer class same time. What a week it’s going to be.. Must keep going! Must keep fighting! I should get back to homework.. GAHHH! If there’s one thing.. I’m just thankful to be alive right now.
Good night tumblr folk! <3
Aaah.. The semester has finally come to an end. Not so pleased with one of my course grades, but hey I’ll take it..so long as I pass! I can’t dwell on the past, must keep moving toward a better future. Work has been the usual pace at the snack shop, restaurant was crazy this past mother’s day. Doubtful with big tips cause we had more servers on hand. It’s all right, money is money eh?
I’m torn with the way I feel and what I would like. It frustrates me when I’m stuck in the abyss, clueless as to where I stand with someone. I’m not asking for much, just an effort to try and see good honest progression to something more? Worse case, we can be friends. I dread getting used and tossed aside again. I have my wall up and so does he. I feel like I’m making more of an effort. If this is one sided..I’m going to have to throw in my white flag. I don’t want to be put in that position again. That’s the risk though, isn’t it? To be vulnerable..to let someone in knowing that they could crush you, but praying and hoping that they don’t.
Meh, One week of summer..more like two days cause I work a ton. Then hello summer school for a month! Costs a ton, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I wish I could see into the future sometimes to verify if all my sacrifices and decisions are all worth it. Life is just uncanny and unpredictable. I guess I’ll grab a light snack and watch a sappy romance film. Work in the am and then maybe so gym time after! I hope you readers are enjoying your evening.
Ta ta for now!
Say hello to Micah! He’s awesome in so many ways. He’s a hipster in denial. So I guess that makes us a pair of nonchalant hipsters in disguise? LOL.
Oh hey! Just finished a back to back with both jobs. Inventory at the snack shop is so tedious! Thankfully the crowd was tame at the restaurant tonight. I’ve learned to let things go and move on with my ever busy life. Made new friends and I’m beginning to cope with my fears. I hope this week goes smoothly..I’m terrified and excited for finals just three more finals to worry about! CAN DO! :)
Boo for having to go to Physical Therapy twice a week to correct the damage I did during a half marathon earlier this month. No pain, no gain!
What a week! What a weekend! First night back at the restaurant means working back to back shifts at both jobs once again. I need the side cash! A lot has happened over the last three weeks and I’m glad to say that I’ve managed to rise above. Must complete school related tasks. This week is going to be its normal hectic routine. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Ta ta for now! :)
My awesome co-worker snuck this in my pile of papers. Such a sweetheart trying to keep me positive! 😌☺👍💗 #blessed #thankful #love #personal #life (Taken with instagram)
