Things you need to get around to.....

Recommended Posts

As I am standing here oontzing, I see a living room eyesore (my easel and mini canvases):

It reminded me of the growing list of shit I need to do, yet I ignore daily.

 

Beyond having to acid wash my pool filters, wash my car, assemble some furniture, do my taxes.....etc.

 

I see this shit staring at me, and it makes me feel lousy.

After painting my nursery this week, it reminded me I need to get back to painting.

I have a garage full of canvases, buckets full of paint and a box full of DecoColors:

I need motivation to start doing shit. The sad thing is I have only worked 4 days since DEC 14. I have been getting paid the whole time, but I haven't done shit in 2 months.

 

I start a new job Monday, so I only have a few days to turn shit around and feel accomplished. Time to make it happen.

 

 

 

 

What are you kids putting off?

closing an inactive checking account i've got sitting around for no reason.

 

When I moved from Chicago, I closed out my checking account, there are no TCFs in AZ. Long story short, somehow $30 was withdrawn from my closed account. It fucked my credit. I don't know how money is taken out of a closed account. In fact it took me 6 years to close that account.

 

Everytime I thought I closed it, I got a monthly statement. I put it off for years since it made my blood boil and I got put on hold forever. They wanted me to fly to Chicago to close it again in person. Sure, yeah, I'll drop $700 on travel because you suck. 6 years later and 1,000+ angry phone calls, emails and letters later, I think it is finally closed. They were charging a checking fee monthly and running up a bill on me. Charging me hundreds for their mistake, and fucked my credit in the meantime.

 

My advice: GO INTO THE BANK IN PERSON TOMORROW AND CLOSE THAT SHIT! ;)

Going to Reno to get my final x rays this week.

 

After that its going to be many sessions in the pool and lots of physical therapy.

i learned recently that transactions on a credit card are never truly final

and bank accounts are never actually closed.

luckily most stores don't want to fuck with people's funds, because you can dispute charges and such, but i had a rental car agency totally fucking with my checking account, and had the numbers changed and shit, and my bank told me if they keep charging me i'll just have to keep disputing the charges.

luckily my bank sided with me, but it was over 2 grand i had to fight for.

 

in doing research i learned shit like this happens all the time, and if you write checks and have business dealings with anyone, they can come back later and modify the terms of the transaction, and you just have to be aware enough to notice and do something about it

super fucked up

 

so, it's prolly best to keep tabs on old accounts and banks if you have them, at least once in awhile, to be sure shit is actually closed or not being tampered with.

 

 

i have a tendency to handle my bidness

there might be things that slip though a little, like fixing a leak on my kitchen faucet, but the really important shit gets deaded.

 

i did my taxes already.

can't wait for that refund so i can buy ..a new computer, a ticket to japan, or both.

 

i'm teaching myself how to sew, but i'm in the middle of crocheting a blanket so i'ma finish that first

there is always art to finish

but i'm working on it, slowly, and i've been graffin and dancin all year so that's awesomeszz

work is money, churning out RT PCR results and FuGene transfections like there's no tomorrow

 

oh yeah, i DO need to get on learning another language.

always saying that.
