I really like Tinder Boy, A lot. We talk everyday, most of the day. We’ve hung out 3 times now, and I baked him cookies.
Yup I went June Cleaver and baked cookies for a boy.
But the thing is I don’t know if he likes me like I like him. And I refuse to ask him how he feels, because the last time I did that it exploded in my face like a nuclear bomb.
I’m going old fashioned on this one and letting him take the lead.
I don’t want to screw anything up. I like talking to him and hanging out with him.
This is going to be hard. I wish there was a book on this!
But I don’t know how to date! Like honestly I haven’t really dated since high school how does it work?!
We talk daily and we’ve hung out together twice… and he kissed me yesterday… but what is my next step?
What do I do? What will he do?
Ugh he’s so cute and sweet and I really like him.
I’m over thinking this aren’t I?
Last night was honestly one of the best nights I’ve had in a while. I agreed to meet up with a guy I met on tinder and had been texting for the last 5 days at his friends birthday.
I was sick to my stomach nervous about this (since it’s super out of my element to just go out in general) until I got there and all was good.
He’s honestly so damn cute and super sweet.
How many days of tinder chatting do you think should pass before giving out your phone number to a guy?
You spend so much time looking out for them and worrying about them and they don’t seem to care and consistently make the same bad choices over and over and over again.
Why is I always seem to be the one who has to act like the mom. The one who has to offer the reality check?
Also when I’m the one who goes a little wild for a little while they think I need help. Double standards are fucking ridiculous.
So I’ve learned the hard way how difficult it is to budget, and save money! So after reading blog after blog, and financial magazine after magazine I thought I’d help some others out with what I discovered works for me, and may help you.
Where do you want your money to go, or where does it need to go more likely.
Do you have a car payment? Do you want to rent an apartment? Or live with mom and dad? (hard I know but it will save money). Do you want to spend money on clothes, or on eating out or Going to the movies?
Track all your expenses and income. This could take a while before you have it fully down. Like a long while a few months even.
Expenses: Transportation, Rent, Loans, Food, Shopping, Coffee etc…
Income: Monthly, Weekly, Biweekly, Tips everything (if you work in a job where you earn tips alternatively you can just instantly add these to your savings category). If this isn’t a set income low ball it at whatever its lowest has been (its always better to have extra money at the end of your month than extra month at the end of your money).
Set Goals and Limits:
Set Goals for spending, and saving. Either daily limits, weekly limits, monthly savings goals or any combination of the them.
Subtract all expenses from your income or low-ball guesstimate, and set your savings goal.
Come Up With a Tracking and Saving System:
There are a lot more options than just these listed.
Hope this helps! Save that money and save yourself some stress!
I’m so excited.
I’m so glad I’m done with Coldstone.
Its like I have an almost grown up job now. Well a job with people my own age.
I haven’t had something new and exciting in my life in over 2 years. This is so thrilling.
That sounds so lame in print.
Plus theres this cute guy there named Zack. OMG.
I know, I know not again Brit, not again.
You’re never going to be satisfied comparing your life to theirs, comparing their relationships to yours, comparing you material possessions to theirs. Someone is always going to have “better”. Truth is, what is “good” or what is “better” is what you decide it to be. The more you long for…
"Expecting 18-25 year olds to be adults is like giving someone a sports car and not teaching them to drive it" my mum just said that and god damn its so true
edit: she’s just given me a load of chores and gone “i’m teaching you to drive a sports car” ffs
I know I’ve lost weight, and I lost quite a bit pretty quickly. I didn’t mean to but when I’m stressed, and in emotional distress I can’t eat. Sorry.
Uh I’m pretty aware that I’m often irrational. I need to be irrational for a little while, while I process what I’m going through. I need to go through all my emotions to figure things out.
Yes I am. My life is go, go , go right now. No time to sit and be clean and neat and tidy. Again sorry.
Please schedule me some naps or something, because I agree I just have no means of accomplishing that.
Says who? What do you mean grow up? That’s a very subjective thing. To me I am acting like a grown up. I’m a 21 year old college student, not a 37 year old accountant. I’m doing fine my bills are being paid, I’m feeding myself, my homework is getting done, and I have a job.
