December 11, 2004
If only I had money to put where my mouth is, I am so skint at the mo. I'm down to my last few pennies, well actually it's a bit worse then that as I have borrowed money (on top of my overdraft and credit cards). I won't have any money till Asda pay me on Christmas eve, or the next working day after which is Wed 29th (i think). There's also a bit of doubt that they'll pay me correctly, in which case I might get less then I need this month and more next month so money could be tight.
I really have to stop my spending, I have gone crazy over the last month, I've spent a fortune on DVD's. I bought the extended version of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King yesterday to complete my set, why couldn't I wait till it was cheaper instead of buying it on the day of release? I also get carried away at Christmas as I love buying people gifts and have bought loads of people gifts this year when usually I'd only send them a card. Postage is gonna to cost me a fortune too.
It's not helping my plan to pay of my Mastercard debt of £5500 by the time I graduate in Jun 2006, a goal which I believe is obtainable but one which I will have to work very hard at to do it, I will need to make sure I do lots of hours over the holidays. I'm never going to achieve it if I keep spending like I have been recently. Hopefully once christmas is out of the way I will be able to have a cheap term as I don't have much to buy and am not planning on doing much, unless of course some more concerts are announced, I already have tickets for Feeder and Oasis though.
I always end up buying everyone else's tickets and not getting my money back till we actually go, like at the moment I have paid for 3 Feeder tickets which I am owed money for and 1 Oasis ticket, plus my brother owes me £50 and my step dad owes me £20 so I guess it's not to bad, although I feel I shouldn't take this attitude as it's precisely that attitude that means I keep on spending!
