Today my dad

Today my dad took me out to lunch and gave me some extra cash so money isn't quite as tight now. That's a good feeling... knowing I can spend a little money on groceries or pay more than the minimum on my credit cards. I took Abby to the park and printed...

the interesting thing that seems less interesting.

I thought of it. I was going to mention the Perl class I signed up for. I've been learning a lot about website back ends and databases and the like, and been downloading, viewing, and modifying scripts for my own use. Now I'll learn how to write them. The...

It's been a

It's been a busy but very productive few days for me. I'm doing this project for a guy, and the money I get from it will go straight back to the developper I paid to do my website for me. After that, the only debt I have to worry about is my credit cards,...

So I was

So I was up until like 3am trying to get this mailing list script working, and finally, mission accomplished. You can sign up for a junkmachine.com mailing list now. Worthless, sure, but I've been wanting to be able to make scripts like that for a while,...

Treating myself.

So, I've been very broke for about 2 and a half months now. I mean VERY broke with virtually nothing to spend entertainment or food wise. I've been pretty responsible about it. Only buying the essentials, and even cutting back my 3-per-week DVD habit. I...

work, money, and more work.

Things are turning around for me, financially speaking. That's a great thing. I checked my credit card statements and I'm not quite as in debt as I thought, although still very much in debt. This week I should have quite a bit of money coming in, and in 2...

Don't have much

Don't have much to report. Been working hard trying to find more freelancing gigs, and taking breaks by working on [junkmachine][1]. And still no one from this journal has signed my Pibb petition. For shame. Fabish cut off all my hair. It's really short...

So the other

So the other day it was like 80 or 90 degrees outside, so I went out to my dad's house to wash my car. The next day it rained like a mother, then snowed. That's always fun. Nothing is going on. I am still so poor and I really want one of those P'zones...

This is going to be really long and really lame.

So, the money making webpage has been up about 3 days now. It's odd... I thought I knew what to expect with a website that got this much traffic, but I was way off. It's been 3 days and I've gotten close to 6,000 hits and exactly 0 sales so far. I'm not...

another webpage, redone and done.

So, i got my first CGI script working. It was a script that I downloaded for free and should have taken about 15 minutes to get it to work, but instead it took about 3 hours because I didn't know what I was doing. It's a petition to bring back Mr. Pibb and...

The webpage is finished!

Sweet Holy Jesus, I had no clue how extensive this project was going to be. Not to mention expensive and an all around pain in my ass. I had to set up a merchant account to take credit card orders, which was a pain in itself. But you can't take credit...

So I went

So I went out to my parent's place tonight to do some laundry and help my dad with various things. I went outside to play with Abby since she loves running around in circles like an idiot and it's hard for her to do that in the city. I was out in my...

Oh man. I

Oh man. I just got done with the 3 S's, and I feel so much better. That's the first time I was able to do that in about 4 days. So, Monday I tried to wake up really late in preparation for the long day ahead of me, but I failed miserably. I guess I can...

So I worked

So I worked long and hard on my webpage last night, and around 6 or 7, Mullens called to see about the plans for Mardi Gras in St. Louis. I told him I wasn't really interested since it sucked last year, and I just had too much work to get done. In the end,...

Ah Mr. Pibb

Ah, Mr. Pibb, how I've missed you.

The webpage is

The webpage is ultra close to being finished, so finances have started to become less of an issue for me. Now he says it'll be finished by Monday night, which is strange because that makes it exactly 1 week that he told me "by the end of the day"...

I'd like to take a few minutes to bitch about my current financial situation.

It's all I can think about these days. It sucks. I hate it. Every second I have this thought in my mind about how incredibly broke I am. I have just enough in my checking account to keep my account open. No more, no less. In about 10 days I have a car...

So Barb called

So, Barb called me up on Friday night. We have a long, not so pleasant past, and she's been trying her best to be my friend again. She's even gone so far as to invite me to be in her wedding party. Weird. Anyway, she wanted to go out with me, but I told...

I've been not

I've been not updating lately, so here's a rundown of the past few days. Mullens took me out to eat at Hooters, which means that once I'm making money again, I'll owe him 2 meals. We watched Junkyard Wars and drank some beers. Last night I went to visit...

Yesterday was a

Yesterday was a good day. I got a lot done on my website, then went out to my parent's house to take a nice long bath and wait for my dad to get home. He took me out to eat, then out to buy me some groceries to keep me fed for a little while. The webpage...
