Still Wavering.

I'm still going back and forth on my goals for the new year. Who knew such a thing would be so hard?

Everything is still quite hectic. I started back school today; I'm also watching my relationship erode. I wish getting out of those things was easier.

Expenses for books this quarter are looking astronomical. Gulp. Not good. I'm looking at the 400 dollar range. Eep! None of the books are in the library like some were last quarter.

Today, I spent 9.44 on groceries and 6 on parking (that reminds me; I need to purchase a parking permit for the new quarter!). Yesterday I went out to dinner with friends to celebrate the birth of my goddaughter(!) and spent 22 dollars. Although, I'm going to divvy that up on my spreadsheet between the alcohol and food portion. I want to start tracking how much I spend on alcohol. Hm, I know one of my goals for the new year is to keep all my receipts. Now to figure out the rest.

I used to spend A LOT on alcohol when I would go out. Now, I usually drink one or two beers (mixed drinks are too expensive) and call it a night. I get to hang out with my friends for around $10...and I'm not hung over the next day.

If you don't want to sit empty handed, have a friend ask for a glass of water when they get one of their drinks...or get a coke. The caffiene keeps me awake and it usually only a few dollars! :)

SavingDiva: I just turned 21 and most of my friends around me are too. Temptation is something I need to work on more.

Strange Bird and Canadian Saver: Thank you!

Hah, I'm not alone! I still haven't figured out the second half of my goals for the year. Congrats!
