Alms for the Poor/No Drama – Off Topic V

September 27, 2005

Ugh! Hate to be so focused on money, but it’s hard to ignore the giant hole in my pocketbook. It’s not like I’m living the high life. My car is a Saturn, I shop (or shall I say shopped) at consignment stores, and the only times I see the inside of a 4-star restaurant is on Food Network.

So where is my money going? I don’t know.

I had this debate with my sister and Moonstarchild, but I stand firm on my belief in that if I was as fortunate as some returning students by having a spouse money won’t be as much of a problem. I don’t want anyone to take care of me. I don’t want to leech off of anyone. But having a spouse makes your life easier if you are returning to school. I have only myself to turn to. If I sink it’s because of me … if I excel it’s because of me. But I also don’t have anyone lean on. I’m just blowing in the wind. All by myself. As usual.

Oh yeah. I have my cats for support. Whatever.

“The grass is greener on the other side of the fence” so the saying goes. Why couldn’t I be a Hilton just go through life rich and mindless??? ::WHINE WHINE WHINE::

Another thing reading other industry blogs (http://www.waiterrant.net or http://standingonthebox.blogspot.com/) I’m sorry to say that mine is without drama. No sex, no cat fights, no gossip (none that I know of anyway) from anyone. Sure we remark that someone is a jerk or steals another student’s equipment, but no one is getting “special attention” from an instructor or anything like that.

No one starts rumors against others … then again … they could be talking about me. ::Feh:: Although (and this is just me being catty) there are a few characters in my school. For example: There’s “Cathy” who steals ingredients and places it in little Tupperware containers and also steals tools from the other students; and “Maria” her cooking frightens me and she ALWAYS forgets a book, tools, or something so she has to borrow from someone.

Once again ::Feh::
