as i had feared, i also deleted about 10,000 words from my nanowrimo story i completed last fall during last weekend’s epic cleaning of my desktop.
oh well. worse things have [and will] happen[ed].
i’m getting cranky today for random reasons. one in particular was a woman who needed help with a program that the company i work for has on their website.
throughout her correspondence in email, she kept referring to me as “jake”. multiple times, in fact.
i can accept this from friends [it’s a name-play on my first and last name, i get it], but from a complete stranger? makes me wonder if they even care about what i’m trying to say to them.
i know it’s just me, but i want to ask them, “did you even read what i just said? really?”
i know it’s not that big of a deal and i know that i shouldn’t get bent out of shape over it, but i did.
i need to start my own personal savings account. don’t get me wrong, i have an account for my personal use that is aside from the joint account with which we use to pay our bills and save, it’s just that i would like to start saving up for something i want.
lately, i’ve been spending six dollars here for lunch, five dollars here for that, and it adds up until i don’t have anything left but an empty feeling of regret [and an eventually hungry stomach].
i don’t have anything in mind for what i would like to be saving up for, but i would like to start saving a little bit for my own rather than spending money on meals, concert tickets and sporting event tickets that i so frequently buy.
when do you know what to buy and when do you know to let something go for another time?
i recently amended my amazon wishlist to only the items i really want to have in my possession and really have use for. it’s down to ten items now and i think i might be able to purge further if i really tried.
i want to simplify my life, not add more clutter to it.
how do you simplify your life?
