I'm working a Part Time position right now at a Vitamin Shoppe that's almost 30 miles away from my house. I would've picked something closer but that's the job I wanted because I know a good deal about Nutrition and the manager there is a good friend of mine so I was an instant candidate. I get paid $10 per hour which isn't too bad
As all of you probably know Gas Prices are still going up. Around where I live within the past month gas has gone up almost 50 cents. It's now around 4.08/gallon. It's ******* ridiculous.
When over half of my paycheck is spent on Gas to fill up my Car. And almost all of that gas is used to get back and forth to ******* work!
Meaning on average I make around $150 per week. At least $80 of that is spent on Gas within that one week period. Driving to the Gym to Lift, Driving to MMA Classes, and Driving to Work. I'm spending so much money on gas I can barely make my car payments let alone treat myself to something I want like for example a Movie or clothes or a Video Game.
After all the necessities like paying to own my car and paying for gas to use it I usually have around $30 at the end of all that to spend on myself. Not to mention I have to cancel my cell phone because my bills are over lapping because I can't pay them on time.
Now my dad wants me to pay for my YMCA Membership because I'm the only one who uses it, that's another $50 per month out of my pocket.
I'm probably going to have to go Full Time and possibly get another job and then I won't have time to do anything I want.
I envy people who are spoon fed everything. Kids that don't have to pay for gas or a car or pretty much anything that they want. Billion Dollar Oil Tycoons are sitting cozy in their mansions driving high end automobiles and I'm barely breaking even here.
Not to mention this Hot, Humid 100 degree weather is driving me ******* insane and I'm so ******* tired I can't even get a good lift in at the gym. I'm losing my appetite and all the weight worked so hard to put on.
Life Sucks right now, and it sucks hard
