I've just kind of been chilling. I'm slowly working on college stuff, as it seems that I will get 60% of my GI bill. Gonna do something here and then get a masters in teaching in Hawaii, or so goes the plan.
We went to Legoland. It's much more for kids than adults, but it was still pretty cool. Yesterday, I found a free guest pass to Sea World, which gives me two. Now we can both go again.
The car needed new tires and some repairs. It cost me about $1300. That ganked enough money to stop me from being able to go with Dinelia to see her parents. I'm relieved and sad at the same time. I didn't want to go this soon. My spanish isn't good yet and they were all pissed off and stuff about her getting married not too long ago. I'd rather let it sink in. Even so, I said I'd go if I could, so it bugs me that I can't now. I could throw it all on my credit card, but really hate paying for stuff that I don't have the money for. I'm also on unemployment right now and they might call or want me to go to some appointment in that time. They schedule this stuff and then you get a letter saying you have to be somewhere at that time and there's no rescheduling. I have some meeting tomorrow with them.
Unemployment pays a lot. It basically matches whatever you made in the last year. I can see why people screw the system and stay on it. I'm sticking on it for a bit to keep money coming in, but it's not a big deal. I'm trying to get an online job where I can set my own hours. I definitely don't want to work full time. We get BAH, which is basically like my old paycheck, so any money I pull in is just extra. We could still save even if I had no job, but I can't be like that for too long.
Here's what's happening in your neck of the woods.
