The dreaded third pay check

October 19, 2009

For those of us that get paid every two weeks, we face an epic battle, that others do not. For us, managing a budget is no easy task. Ten months of the year, things are just fine, but when March and October come around, my whole world turns upside down…I get an extra paycheck. Although […]

Improve your work situation

Addiction Whore.

October 7, 2009

Are you like me? Do you get temporarily obsessed with random things? Maybe I’m bi-polar, maybe I lack commitment, but I sit here reflecting on all of the glorious obsessions I have had over the last couple years. Some persist, but many are short lived. HGTV: Yes, it is terribly embarrassing to admit, but I […]
