So, yes, I need to get into the pattern of actually buying things again. It;s so strange, but I feel sooo guilty. its been so long since I could afford to buy new clothes. and now, my brain thinks "nono lisa, you can make do. you should really save this cash for debt" Which is silly, cause I pay over $1000/ month to my debt. I deserve some pants that fit, right? I can see now how my grandparents' generation can still be so thrifty and price obsessed after all these years. After going though the great depression and getting in that "theres no money" mindset....its so hard to pull out.
anyway, speaking of money...it's braid day! I was editing a "before" confession, but for some reason, I cannot export my movie from Imovie to quicktime! :( some system error. Ive restarted the mac a few times and tried different exporting formats, but something is definately wrong. Im so bummed, because i even filmed the gas station mayhem across the street the day after the blackout. I was going to post that too , for kicks. but i guess not...
so, lets chalk up a new computer next to the new pants, shall we?
I need to start making a list of all the needs/ wants/ desires. Otherwise I forget. which may not be all bad, but let's see...i really should own more than 1 bra. and my computer shoudl really work (sidenote: APPLE LOAN IS PAID! yay!)
im totally rambling. and drinking chai tea that james brought from work. hes hating his job. i wont let him quit until there is something else.
ooo! and theres a russian language class at NYU. It;s part of the adult continuing education school they have. If I take Russian I, II...III, and some translating courses, I could get my certificate. This might be enough to get me into graduate school for Russian translation. Where the hell did this idea come from? I took 3 years of russian in HS. Im really good at it (must be those Baltic roots). I still remember almost everything. Foreign study/ foreign service, MBA in intertnational business....its an idea. But, yeah.
blah. the class is 525$, for 1 night a week (2 hours) from Sept 20- Dec 13. Or, I could take the intensive course for 755$: 3 hours a week, during the same timeframe. so expensive! i really want to take the 755$ class but i have no idea how id come up with that money. the other one is possible. anyway, i have 2 weeks to plan how to pay for it, if I want to take the fall class.
ok, im going to go now, cause i see im really chatty about random everything....
