Savings? That's so unAmerican!
Hooray! I finally got my first paycheck today!
Short story: Payday was last Friday. My boss told me that the check was cut, but they didn't know where it was. Said it was probably shipped to my house. So I check the mail Friday night (of course, no luck). Saturday, no luck. Sunday, waste of time. Monday, still no luck. Tuesday at work, I checked my email and learned that HR has been sending me notices that I could have picked up my check last Friday from them. They sent another notice on Monday, but I was dumb enough not to check my email. So Tuesday, they sent one last email telling me that it will be shipped to my house since I failed to pick it up.
Anyway, I got it today and am very happy with the total. I already have plans for it too.
I'm getting an iPod. I'm a little afraid of spending so much on essentially a walkman, but I figure I listen to enough music to make it worth it (and I haven't purchased a cool gadgetty gimmick lately).
So, those are my plans. I know I should put my money into savings, but oh well. I can't be expected to grow up just yet. Screw that!
Anyway, work's good. It's kinda fun and the hours pass by pretty quickly, but it drains me. And the trains smell.
