I'm not playing hookey...

I'm not playing hookey from work, well, not intentionally at least. I did call them to let them know I wouldn't be in today. It's not even that I'm sick, though I am feeling a bit queasy (probably from stress and anxiety, sigh). I didn't have enough gas to get to work!

I get paid this Friday at least through direct deposit (fingers crossed that there will be no issues) so I know I will stop being anxious then, and I asked my mom if she could give me some gas money to last me a few more days. I hate asking people for money, but I really do need to be able to get to work this week. It's stressful enough that I didn't have a flow of income for the past few weeks, and I don't want to screw up this new job.

Oh well. I'm trying to make the most of today and be as productive as I can. I'm at my school library studying for my history midterm in a few weeks, and trying to earn a little extra money. Besides this site, which I'm just barely getting into, I use Bubblews, the Perk app on my phone, Blogjob, and I'm trying out Postloop. I won't get the money instantly but I feel somewhat productive at least.

I'm trying not to get so stressed out that I end up crying in the library. Sometimes I feel so alone. I know it could be worse, and I have been through much worse financial stress, but it still stinks.

It stinks to have to ask others for help. Try to remember, though, you always have options, even if you can't see them. There's always a third- even a fourth - way to handle things.

That's what I always tell myself, and that has helped me in most cases :) At least I feel that I am still being productive because I'm using this time to study for my class :)

Money problems can be very worrying and stressful so it's great you can focus on your studies.

Exactly :) At least I can get something else important done if I can't at least go to work today :p

Stress sucks especially when it comes to money. I'm sure everything will turn out in the positive for you. :) Keep fighting and moving forward!

I feel you. Being financially dependent is never fun. Never! Hope, things start looking up for you K!
