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::
