I woke up this morning refreshed at 6am.

I spoke to God like a child asking for lunch money. People always quote saying: "You have not because you ask not." So I'm asking.

As we're leaving for work, my mom hands me mail. What is in there but a notice saying it was my student loans that took my refund. I'm wondering if I should fight it or just let them have it because they just took $100 from me yesterday. Some people are so greedy! So what if I owe them $9k. It all adds up!

Get this! She's like..Oh I've had this mail forever.


Oh yea, there was a disconnection notice from my gas company. They were going to cut me off for $35.
I went ahead and paid that plus the current bill ($25) $60 out of my pocket that I hadn't budgeted for...lovely.

The beautiful struggle!

It is a small consolation that I look exactly how I wanted to today. My outfit and make-up are pretty on point in an "I just threw this on way." Gotta count your blessings where you

So, my mom is driving me to the train station and we're talking about her wannabe "fiance" - long story...I'm like if you guys get married, where are ya'll going to live? She's like I have my house. He has his. He can go to his house if he wants to. I don't think he's cheating on me. He's an honest man. So if he's not going to cheat on me now, why would he cheat on me if we're married?

Sage words, friends...
