The Blatherings Of A Blitherer

Whole Paycheck


I just got my first paycheck at the new job and, bearing in mind that I worked 2.5-5 hours more than usual (most of my temp gigs were for 35 hours, with some (especially the most recent one) being 37.5 hours) PLUS worked 5 hours of overtime, I made almost twice last week compared to what I used to make per week.

 At the end of this week I’ll have worked at least ten hours overtime, and next week will probably be the same, so my next paycheck will no doubt come a lot closer to meeting that “twice as much as before” mark.

I’m mega pumped about this, but also kind of bummed because I already have places for all that money… places that are not fun. But in a year or so I can do fun stuff because in a year or so I’ll have a lot of debt paid down AND N’s car will be paid off in full, freeing up $500 a month (one of our biggest cash drains).

I have a whole freaking list of stuff I love about this job, stuff that goes beyond fiscal concerns, and I’ll post that later. I need to get back to work now, though.
