So eh.

Despite the purchase of a great shirt at Rampage yesterday (fits me perfectly, complies with work dress code, and was a steal at $10!) and new treats from The Body Shop, I'm feeling very lethargic today. Part of it is my desire to go out and DO SOMETHING, but for the most part, nothing's happening.

I'm broke - terribly so. There's an $18 check waiting for me at Bath and Body Works, but what can that buy me? It isn't enough to cover gas, let alone anything fun. There's $40 left in my checking account, and out of a $1300 limit credit card, I've only got about $600 left. I'm beginning to think I need to open up a second credit card, but I question the wisdom of that. I bet I'd only dig myself into a deeper hole. Ack. It's frustrating, because up until this week my credit card was still empty! A week of school is enough to wreck my hopes of saving money!

Why can't I afford my lifestyle anymore?

You know what I should do? I should break down and sell some clothes. I have some fabulous things I could sell, secretly mourning as they're sold for a fraction of what I paid, and make enough money to pay that student debt off.
But I'm rather attached to everything, and it goes so cheaply. My pretty Lip Services would be filtered away in $20's heartbreak, it truly is.

Makaiju Distro is currently closed for inventory, and also for restocking. Restocking is made most difficult when one can't afford new product! I'm not sure what I want to do about that, but there will probably be a big sale when it re-opens, because I need to clear out older stock. Ugh.

Money can't buy happiness, but it's great for buying diversions, and I need a diversion quite badly at the moment.
