April is proving to be a strange and incredibly busy (and drunken) month.
It started with Con, I obviously spent too much time drinking booze that I had no business drinking. I did get to bartend Dethcon which was totally awesome and I can't wait to do it again next year. I blame Kevin, Everclear and the Hot Tub for my three day hangover.
This weekend its Honkfest West, the RCRG bout and hopefully some fucking downtime. (But I know there will be NO downtime. Jack's friend Billy is in town for the weekend, so I know its gonna be balls out from when I leave the apartment today until I get home Monday afternoon.)
Next Thursday morning (at 6am no less) I fly out to LAX for Coachella. (I get to go because of the always amazing spyderfly10
. I'll be there in the desert watching some of the best music of this generation while sipping mimosas and mojitos in the sun. (I may have to make the mojitos and mimosas, then smuggle them into the venue, but I'll be fucking sipping them in the sun goddammit.)
While all of this is happening I am desperately trying to save up enough money to get the apartment next door to mine. (Nicole's former place) My goal is $1100 by the end of the month, and I have NO idea if I'm gonna be able to make it or not. (I need to do my taxes...) I do know that I haven't cashed the $439 paycheck that I got for last month (a check with almost 20 hours left off it that will be showing up on the next check, at the end of April) I know that at the moment I am entirely living off my tips, (including paying my bills with said tips) and thats not gonna be able to hold for too long, I already owe Ty $150 that I won't be able to pay him without cashing that check. (well... maybe. If I'm careful this weekend I might be able to work something out.) The plan is to be as cheap and easy as possible until I move in. The total cost for the Apt is $1650 so I'd be $550 short (last months rent) which I'm hoping that I can work out a plan to pay back over time (like over 4 or 5 months.)
I'm also looking for a second job, something full time. If I can score that I'll be making a lot more money, a lot faster. I've been looking all month (via CL which isn't really worth it.), but I need to get out there and pound pavement, and I honestly won't have time for that until AFTER coachella. *shrug* no biggie. My resume is in order, my references are worked out, all I gotta do is hit every bar and restaurant in town, someone will like me enough to hire me.
It looks like I'm gonna have a whole $100 to spend the weekend of Coachella, which isn't that much for 5 days out of town, but I'll make it work. Very little eating out, much cooking, thats how I'll manage it.
wellsir, thats all I got.
