The Great Escape

Well Monday night I went down to Indianapolis to do some stuff to get ready for my show coming up this weekend, and long story short, my car ended up dying in the middle of the road, and I ended up stranded overnight in Indianapolis. I spent $200 earlier in the week getting new brakes, brake pads, and routers to prepare for my trip to NYC again this year to celebrate Thanksgiving. With my car breaking down this time, I spent another $270 getting it fixed. I had saved up nearly $400 to make my move in March, and this money is now down the drain, not to mention some money I wanted to have for NYC.

This is just a rough time of year money-wise...Kevin and Shannon both have birthdays this month so there's gifts for those, not to mention Christmas being a month a way, and having $175 to pay out for a 2 million dollar liability insurance claim that I have to have by December 1st.

So what do you do to get money? Work. I've been at work for a solid 10 and a half hours already today and I still have two to go. It's just one of those days that isn't really a bad day, but it's definitely not a good one. I have all day tomorrow off, so that's awesome that I can relax and spend the day doing the things that I need to accomplish, but on the same note, I need to be working to make money.

I'm just bummed out, that's all. I felt like I was doing so good and making great progress, and then BAM! Something like that happens and puts a kink in all my plans. I mean, I'm still planning on going to New York, and stuff, but I have no idea how I'm gonna pay my phone bill or any of this other stuff I'm trying to deal with right now. Things are a mess, thanks to my car.

I haven't really had a whole lot of time to talk to any of my friends lately either, so that's a bummer. I was thinking about it tonight and I haven't talked to my friend Greg for at least a month, and last time we talked was over a text message.

I'm just stressed out, I guess. I felt like maybe writing would help. And it just made me realize how much of a mess this is now that I haev it all laid out in front of me.

Things will work out, I just don't know much more of this I can take...

Throw it away
Forget yesterday
We'll make the great escape
