I admit I have always had the easy way out. I worked at KFC for a few months, barely showed up and eventually quit the job. After that, I started my own business which is still going quiet well. I am not complaining , but I do need more money to get rid of debt, save up AND go on a vacation.
Now , I need to find a job. But no one wants to give me a job because I don’t have enough experience for retail or food industry.
If I never get the opportunity to work then how would I even gain experience?
My best bet is to work at Mcdonalds but they serve meat and it just goes against my ethics. (I wasn’t vegan when I worked at KFC)
Anyway, so this is my plan to get out of debt.
Save 50% of May 10th and May 11th ‘ s income.
Pay $75 towards one card.
Get a new job , and use income from that job solely to pay off debt.
Do any of you have suggestions? My resume is VERY weak. I don’t have any experience. KFC won’t give me a great referral.
So what can I do?
Anyway, I will keep updating my debt issues for this blog.
I currently owe $2000 in total.
Hi dear readers,
Now let me begin my boring post with saying how much I missed writing for the last few days. But, this time has been so incredibly difficult (life complications). Anyway, so today happens to be a beautiful day and I thought it may be the perfect day to share something I read today.
As a result of my withdrawal from the outer world my mom had been so worried at the beginning of this year she gave me “Chicken Soup for the soul Power of Positive” as a New Years gift. Of course,I was meaning to read it but never got around to it. I did today though.
So there was a certain chapter where the writers wants us to celebrate small things that we usually tend to ignore. Now I really have much deeper issues like debt, academic problems that I really don’t see any reason for small celebrations. But then I realized I have been so blessed to get a few weddings and birthdays as photography assignments here and there DESPITE having a VERY basic camera.
Oh and then today, I paid $100 towards my $600 credit card bill (which was originally $300 but interests doubled it up). So now, I still have $500 to pay towards that card and many more to pay towards other debts but it is a step right? And I believe this will be the beginning.
So I thought of celebrating this with my readers, who would probably understand my situation best.
I am in debt of over 2000 (I successfully did manage to pay off $500)
I am still very much unemployed but thanks to gifts on my birthday
I keep receiving notice from capital one to pay off my money (I owed 400, it increased to 550)
I will be paying $150 for no reason
Even worse is after I pay it off, I can’t use it anymore! So that’s why I’m putting off paying it
Why I am unemployed :
– because I hated my previous job, and the jobs I do want they never come to me!
So what should I do? I have 0 income and stupid credit card bills are driving me crazy.
Despite of my wise poses on materialism and showing off, I have to admit that I have given into the north american life of materialism. That said, the spending phase was about 3 months ago. After that whole thing, I took a break from my materialistic ways and I am happy going into other worlds through books and television for now. I owe my bank, credit card company close to $2100. I am looking for a job but since I quit KFC suddenly , reference isn’t working out well. I am looking for jobs and jobs and jobs but no luck.
I can easily ask my mom to pay off and she will be glad to but since she already paid off $6000 four months ago I think it will not be fair to ask her again.
So I figured out some ways of saving money when I am earning (right now I am not)
– save $100 a week
– start paying off credit card companies slowly
– cut back on luxury (buying starbucks, donuts, ice cream)
– save money by walking to places
– save money by drinking water instead of soda
– understand the consequences of having a bad credit history
