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.
One of my cards have been cancelled leaving me with a $400 something debt. The problem is, I don’t have a job.
However, I babysit once in a while and earn some money.
My second step was to pay $ 42.95 towards my bill. I know I have a long way to go but still.
Something is better than nothing.
I got a notice from the collections department insisting on making a payment to my cancelled card where I owe $400. The limit was of $300 but I never paid anything to that card so yeah.
So I did some work last week and got $25. I paid off $23 to my owing card. I know that’s nothing but that’s the first step.
I don’t even earn $50 a week. I don’t know how I am supposed to pay off my bills. OMG! I have an outstanding balance of $400 in one of my cards and it’s badly affecting my credit history. Sometimes I feel the urge of going and confessing my money handling issues to my mother but I don’t want to prove to my mom how worthless I am. It was only the other day that I told her I was going to be “independent”.
Nothing is working out. I don’t know what I should do anymore.
