I’ve got an inflamed stitch in my right eye, so I’m on two different eye drops 4 times a day and I need to go see my specialist in Edmonton to get it dealt with. As of writing this status update, I haven’t yet received word of when that will be and I have an appointment with my eye doctor here in Camrose if I don’t get an appointment before then. If I don’t get a call by four, I’ll assume I’ll be going to that appointment, as my specialist does surgeries on Friday and is not in the office.
It is my wish and hopes that everyone is having or had a great Thanksgiving this weekend! May you all be able to rejoice in the blessings of the past year. May you also be able to spend time with your loved ones.
I’m saving money by not having breakfast at the Norsemen Inn’s cafe after my night shifts. Instead, I’m eating at home before I go to bed. This is saving me between seven and twelve dollars a shift, and when I work ten to eleven shifts per pay period, it adds up. Yes, I am still taking taxi rides to and from work, but I took out cash for that when I deposited my check in the first place, so it’s already accounted for in the budget.
I might be earning a decent amount of money now, but if I don’t use it wisely, I’ll always be in debt to the credit card companies and never save up for anything that I want in the future, like a home that I own and not rent. By saving and not spending now, I’ll be able to spend big in the future on such things without accumulating too much debt getting them. (Of course, if I can convince my landlord to let me get a business license, I’ll be able to start making money from the Alberta Business Directory but that’s a different story and problem.)
Quit trying to hack into my personal Roblox account! I will never reset the password unless I have forgotten it, so don’t bother trying that trick on me!
I need to be less lazy in when I get out of bed. I’m getting out of bed later and later in the day, even though I’m going to bed around the same time. It’s pure laziness, nothing more and nothing less. I’ll need to get up earlier tomorrow anyways as I have a video to record for my YouTube channel so that I can stay a week ahead. I’ll also have to get up earlier on Friday to deposit my paycheck manually and pay my bills.
I love my new job and am doing the best that I can in order to keep it. Occasionally, I do make a mistake, but I try to correct them whenever I realize it (and ask for help when I don’t know how or can’t do so by myself). I’m enjoying the peace and quiet which allows me to read or quietly play games on my iPad, but am also enjoying the work that I do at the beginning and end of each shift as a night auditor.
