At least until my next paycheck …The second paycheck of the month always goes towards next month’s rent and my college loan payments (which are ridiculously huge payments … why did I get my degree in dance again??? lol). This means I have a much smaller free spending budget to work with to get me through the next week and a half and it’s entirely doable.
I do this every month. It just means no going out, no eating out, no major travels, no shopping …. (I don’t like Black Friday or Cyber Monday anyways.) I refer to this time of the month as my “anti-social week”. Don’t call me to go out for drinks or happy hour because I will shut you down with a “Sorry, No Can Do.” But it’s also during this week of the month that I learn new recipes to cook at home, read books, do laundry and simply refocus my energy back into myself …

I guess that’s why I was cool with having a real chill Thanksgiving dinner at home last night since I’m transitioning into “homebody” mode. I’ll be home this weekend working on my CV … WTF! The hardest, most mind boggling thing to format ever!!! I’ll also be working out in preparation for Barbados and catching up on Duck Dynasty episodes … Maybe I’ll take a walk around the neighborhood since the weather has been absolutely gorgeous these past couple of days…
Does anyone else have an “anti-social week”? How do you get through these broke couple of days???
