What Im eating these days

I'm trying to save money so I've been eating canned food lately.
Those Chef Boyardee and Ramen meals are really inexpensive. A lot of times they'll have sales on the canned pastas that are 10 cans for $10.
I got this can of Spaghettios today

I dont have a car so I cant go to the supermarket, but luckily the corner liquor store near me has a lof of canned food.
And they sell cans of Spaghettios for $1.25 each

So Im able to get by.

Self righteous celebrities are full of BS

I saw a clip today of Oprah talking about money, and how money doesnt really matter and people dont need money to be happy.

She said soemthing to the effect of 'people think "if I could just pay this mortgage off or if I could just pay my kids college tuition off then I'll be happy". But that doesnt mean anything and money isn't important'.

Of course after giving a speech like that she hops in her stretch limo that takes her to her private jet and off to her $50 Million dollar mansion where she has 4 butlers, 4 maids, a chef, a masseur, etc etc.

Dont tell me money isnt important. Lets see you go a month without money. Life's not so wonderful when you have to worry about how you're going to pay the rent is it?

What's a good present to get someone who...

you dont see too often?
Im getting a b-day card for my brither's girlfriend. She's very nice and sweet, but I've only met her once a few months ago and will see her today to celebrate her birthday.

Should I just get a card?
Should I get a gift card to put in the card?
I dont want to spend too much money, $25 is kind of too much and I cant afford it right now.
Oh I have to buy a disposable camera too :( thats another $10. the money is flying out of my pocket. I have to reign this in better.

Just woke up...

tired, want to go back to bed but can't. Once I'm up, then I'm up.
I think about business and money again lol.

I have to go to the store and get a card for someone's birthday.
I don't have a car so I have to take the bus there. I hate this.
Going to the store to get a card should take 20 minutes, but for me it will take 2 hours waiting for a bus there, shopping, then waiting for a bus back

This blogging thing is nice

I can really get a lot off my chest.
I moved across the country and dont really have any friends here and this is a great way for me to talk.
Just talk and talk. It's hard to meet people because I'm always depressed.
I'm depressed because of, can you guess? :)

or lack of it.
I wish I could afford to buy a car and go somewhere. And I wish I had friends to go somewhere with.
Wow Ive always been like this.
Man that is fucking sad.
Thank God I can write about it now.
Thank you Blogger :)

I'm obsessed with money

I think about it all the time. I know it's not healthy but I cant stop.
I just went into my "money draw" where I keep my money and keys and things and took out all my money. I had a $10, a $5 and some change.
I'm taking a picture of it now.

It's Friday and I'm home. I won't go out this weekend because I can't afford it.
When will I be happy?
I wish I had lots of money. Whats it feel like to have hundreds or even thousands of dollards in your pocket, and then go out on the town with friends and have fun. Order anything off the menu, who cares what the price is, you can buy anything.
I want to know what that feels like.
Im sitting home on a Friday because Im broke. I hate this.

The Forbes 400 came out today...

and it lists the 400 wealthiest Americans. This is the first time in Forbes history that everyone on the list is a billionaire.

I love to read these and daydream.
I dont get it, these people are BILLIONAIRES. They can sneeze on a million dollars and it wouldnt be a big deal to them, but I cant even figure out how to make $100,000 and stick it in the bank.
Actually I cant even figure out how to make $5,000 a month.

I wonder what thats like, to get a large check in the mail and deposit it into a bank account and feel secure.

Hi, this is my first post

I really needed a place where I could speak my mind and just unload and here it is.
I hope it works
