100 or less: Making Calls

TelephoneThe phone sits in mute accusation.  Staring at me, chiding me for calls unmade.  There are so many things to do.  It is still too early yet there is not enough time. 

I have to talk to the office about one bedroom units and low credit ratings.  Its too early.  How will they know for certain a unit will open up?  I have to save up anyway.

There is the doctor’s office as well.  When is the appointment with the specialist?  April something.  We have to plan a special diet for diabetes.  It took so long.  She was booked.

Shut up, phone.

Too Bummed to Write

Feeling Blue

My roommate just told me that when his classes end next August, he plans to find a job out of state and move.  So I’ll have to apartment hunt again.

This will not be fun since my credit isn’t so good anymore.  About 5 years ago I went from making 26$ an hour to under 6$ an hour.  So my credit took a nose dive since I couldn’t pay stuff off anymore.

Now I’ve finally worked my way up to a somewhat better pay and next week, my new pay scale will but me into the 31,000 a year bracket at a gross pay.  But 220$ goes out of every check after net wages to help get that debt paid off.

Finding an apartment is going to be hard now.  So I’m really rather depressed.
