*looks at list* Also, I’m apparently time travelling back to 1998… But I’m determined to go to more concerts and since it’s just me, I have to go them alone and though that’s fucking terrifying, I’m going to do it. Because I’ve already spent the money and some of those cost too much to just eat the cost (looking at you NKOTB and BSB…) And by putting it out there like this and on Facebook, I'm forcing myself to be held accountable.
All but BSB are purchased and BSB will be purchased on Wednesday because I shelled out for the fan club for presale access. And I’m going to try for the VIP stuff. Because that would be even more incentive to overcome fears and go to shows. And I’d get to hug Nick (shut up! I’m a fangirl, don’t judge me!)
Even though I’ll have to be abusing my credit card soon (and I just paid the thing off…) because while I budget and scrimp, I have a car payment and mortgage and bills and only so much money. Dammit.
After the BSB purchase, going back through my budget for the year and seeing if there's anywhere else I can tighten things up. Because otherwise I'm running negative come October. But if need be, I can pause or cut back my savings (currently putting aside $600 a month.) And end of the year is raise time, so maybe that'll help.
And I may start working towards the promotion. Because of money, and because maybe if I'm not so involved in code at work, I can revive my love of it at home rather than slacking off on things. But as always, the promotion is tied in with being more "talkative" and such. I get shit done, why do I need to talk about it or have a meeting about it?
