Finding Freedom

How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

Something That Irks Me
Though I know that it shouldn't bother me, I hate how my pay schedule worked out this period. I got paid on Friday, and I will not get paid again until the seventh. Rent, however, is due on the first. This puts rent just about equally between pay checks.

For some reason, I always expect a pay check the day before, or a few days before rent is due. That way I can prioritize in my mind the rent money. However, and I don't expect this to happen, when pay day is a week away from rent day, I find it a lot easier to prioritize my money in other ways, thus leaving me up the proverbial creek when rent day comes a knockin'.

It's a silly thing to worry about, I know.

Also, has everybody heard the distinction between Fridays you get paid and Fridays that you don't get paid? If you get paid, that's Good Friday; if you don't get paid, it's Passover. That's funny.

    I get paid monthly, and when I first got here everybody told me how much I would hate it and how awful it was. Actually it works out pretty nicely because then all of the monthly things get paid at the exact same time and then I know exactly how much I have for the rest of the month for everything else.

    I think that I would almost prefer to get paid monthly. It would be a cleaner way to budget, as opposed to my bi-weekly schedule.
