Penn State

Today was an absolutely beautiful day. I wandered around campus taking everything in and discovering new places, and I was completely and utterly happy. It was one of the best feelings I've had in awhile. I know I have at least two more years to live here, but I really am going to miss this place when I go.

In other news, not doing so well on the saving money front. I tried to keep my fun spending under $40 a week, but since I had a friend visiting this weekend we went a little buckwild. Now I only have 80 bucks left for the whole month, which includes: food, gas for a trip home this weekend, and fun money. This is so frustrating because somehow this always happens! I need to start keeping better track of my expenses, like I used to do before school started. Oy.

I absolutely love it down there. There's nowhere else like it and I've lived and worked in one of the best college towns anywhere!

As for spending, I think you should have some fun and realize that you're a reasonable person and you'll probably find a saving equilibrium sooner than later. Don't stress too much as there isn't much you can do for extra income at the moment. Maybe a part time gig or consulting will come up though?
