    on a mission to do some bitchin......

    So i used to make $18.50 an hour at a warehouse in the east bay doing monkey work and then one day my gf tells me to go back to school.

    i bust ass for two years and voila....accepted into prestigious university. I quit my job that pays fat for a better future.

    Cut to right now. I am pursuing my education and broke as fuck. i subsidize my weekends by nefarious means because there is no work in this shitty town.

    So now I am getting up at an ungodly hour of the morning tommorrow to apply for a MINIMUM (and i do mean minimum) wage job at the library. From almost twenty dollars an hour to fighting fist tooth and nail to get a job that doesn't even pay seven dollars.

    I used to flash twenties like nobodies buisness. Now it's plumbing the sofas for change so i can get enough gas to visit my friends in the east bay. Steaks for dinner back in the day and now i'm eating omelets every damn night. I hate eggs even more than ramen now.

    Post your stories of being at the top and then hitting the rocks.

    so one time i had 9000 bucks and i was like oh shit i want a slurpee machine..then i flushed it down the toilet because i thought it would be silly to destroy so much money
     
  3. c'mon dude, you know how this goes..you couldnt work there forever and you'd never get more than 20. At some point of your life 20 will sucks ass and hopefully you'd be in the position to make more than that.

    Anyway, i feel you on present though...i have no storys to offer other than being the wiz kid everyone knew will do something worthwile to end up scratching my balls to the point they bleed.

    Christ, she bit my head off the other day when i asked her if i could get $2.00 for bridge toll to get homne to (blank).

    I dunno, I'd rather starve than hit my old lady up for money. It's just a pride thing I guess.
     
  9. I always borrow money from my girl and always return it, she does the same but i aint taking back...thats my way of balancing back

    I made the mistake of putting all of my money in an account that I can't get to until next year. So now that I am broke, I am REALLY broke. I have about $80 total to my name. Talk about living on a shoestring budget.....

    although i'm not there yet, i'm preparing...
    i have a pretty good paying job now, but i highly dislike it and
    need more flexible hours for school.
    hopefully i'll have a new job by summer, but that means less pay.
    and living in chicago is really expensive.
    at least i'll get to wake up later than 7am...thank jeebus.

    * and this is supposedly the struggling part of our lives. it should get better soon. soon meaning 10 yrs for me after i get my phd.
