I was SO CLOSE to finishing my college education without taking out a loan by both a college fund, not spending any money if I can help it, and my part time jobs over the years. That is until now.

ONE SEMESTER TO GO AND I HAVE NO MONEY. D:


Funny because I need a lot of money very quickly.

1. $250 due for deposit on Thailand study abroad trip I really want to go on but my parents are dead set against me going on
2. $120 for passport
3. $350 for credit card bill that includes the doctor who dvds I bought, christmas presents, and about three tanks of gas (and other misc things)
4. $1700 for tuition (something like that)
5. I'm guessing $150 on books.
6. Somewhere around $2000-3200 for Thailand.

This is going to be so fun! I currently have about $400 so I'm going to have some fun figuring out everything. #1 has to be done asap, #2 asap and I guess I'll just pay as much as I can on #3 since my next bill will be small and I'll be able to cover it. As for #4 and #5, I don't need those for a month. And #6, they haven't figured out the price yet and I'll have time to figure that out.


Game plan: Ask for help from friends and family. I'm sure people I know will be willing to help me. I'm also going to ask around for some odd jobs I can do for people. Also, I'm planning on sticking around at CVS longer than I thought. I'll prob just work the weekends, but better than nothing. I'll also get an internship during next semester that will be (hopefully) a paid one, so I can have TWO jobs. I really don't want to take out a loan, but I can do that if it comes absolutely necessary.


I need to take a shower, get my passport photo taken, turn in the forms, pay my deposit and sweat out the rest of my money. OH AND GO TO THE BANK FIRST! I have to deposit money into my account otherwise my checks will bounce! THAT IS IMPORTANT!!!


So if anyone else has any ideas on how I can pay for everything, let me know.

Also, my parents don't know that I'm putting a deposit down on my Thailand trip or applying for a passport. Whenever I bring it up, they just talk about how dangerous Thailand is and how I don't have money. And for the record, I really should have a passport and the trip money is refundable. Which means if I don't come up with the rest of the money, I'll get my deposit back.
And their like you wanna trade cards?
Yeah I wanna trade Cards
But Not my charizard.

You know, I never managed to get myself a charizard. I saw a holo one that my friend got once. He had it in a special hard case and everything. Anyway, I was cleaning my room today and found my pokemon cards which got me thinking: how much are these worth? So I counted them up and made an inventory (zomg 360 cards not including energies) now I just need so see if and where I can sell them. I like how I thought when I was younger these were going to be HUGE collectors items and I would be super rich.

Eh, whatever. I still need several hundred dollars until I can afford my new iMac. I don't get paid for a long time and I think it will be decent, then I got my tax refunds to do! yay for that!

I'm trying to think if I have anything else of "value" I can sell that I don't use. I have a great coat that (sort of) looks like Jacks. Maybe I should sell that since it's huge on me. I want my new computer noooow. Posh Tosh probably needs some sort of repairs but I don't want to pay for that when I can get a new computer. Sorry Tosh.

Talking about saving money, went to the drug store today and bought Iron Man because it was there and cheap, then bought a ped egg because it was there and I wanted to know if it really worked. (It does)

Right! Time to search the internetz and see if I can get anything for these stupid cards that the Japanese made me buy by brainwashing me as a child!

Well:
1. *points to icon*
2. Figwit!


I spent most of today randomly googling things and trying to help my friend find bridesmaid dresses that will look good with the idea of her bridal gown. Basically, all of the other bridesmaids have normal and proportionate figures and mine is weird so I get to be the one trying on all of these dresses. Bonus: She's going to Chicago to look for dresses and I'm going along! Sweeeeeeeeet.

I also just realized how poor I am. I'm not poor poor, but I just have a lot of stuff to buy before I graduate and somehow do fun things, buy ridiculous things (and gas) and save up money for this trip to New York that my pen pal wants me to do.

Maybe I should do some homework....maybe.

Last night I woke up and was like "ZOMG LOST" because I had a huge bloody nose and I thought my brain was going through bad time travel jet lag, but it wasn't because that's not real.....or is it?
