Holly and Jolly Humbug!

So it's almost Christmas, which means I have to shop for gifts. I hate shopping!

I 'm fine with getting stuff for kids for Christmas, but adults are a pain to shop for. Usually they just end up with something they don't really want or need.

My constant car repairs and other debts make my budget an issue.

Humbug to Christmas, I just wanna relax!

Tired and pissed

So I'm back to working crazy overtime leading upto Christmas and I'm really feeling mentally worn out. All I want as a gift is to clear my bankruptcy payment and have enough money to put the 10% down on a computer that I'm required to in order to get a loan from my workplace for the remainder.

The problem is my car keeps breaking down and draining all my finances. I got the struts and the alternator replaced in the last month and I still need to get the clutch replaced. On top of that it looks like the struts or steering has just broken again! At this point I'd like to just scrap the car and walk!

The Cheque has arrived

Finally I received the call that my cheque to purchase my computer is ready I go to get it tomorrow and hope to have the computer setup tomorrow evening. Excitement is building!

New computer!

I finally submitted my paperwork to my workplace to get a loan for a new computer. Pretty good deal since it's deducted off of my paycheque for the next two years. Works out to be about $50 a cheque.

I'm excited about getting a new computer so I can do more stuff on the internet and edit video, which my current computer is way to slow and old to handle. I'm also planning on doing some web based distant education university courses so a decent computer was a must.

Hopefully they get the cheque to me soon!

Degrees and more...

So I am trying to figure which is the best way to go about getting a university degree.

Do I try to complete a general arts degree through distance education at my old school UNBC, which has a very limited courses available, or do I start fresh on a degree at a new school?

I'm really looking into it and weighing my options.

Birthday Joy!

It's my Daughter Brianna's fourth birthday today. She had an exciting day and got a Princess Peach Video game for her Nintendo DS. We had cupcakes this morning and a nice day. We have more plans for her the rest of this weekend with her cousins and friends coming to visit.

Working out again.

Got some time in the weightroom today. First time in months, feels good. I'm thinking with schedule changes I should be able to get back here regularly in the new year.


Went to see the new Bond movie yesterday. I thought it was a good follow up and really fast paced. A great action movie. Suggest anyone goes to see it.
