Still in a bad place mentally. Found a place for $590 a month, and the job I'd gotten in the OP pays around $1080 a month. Unfortunately AAA, gas and food suck a lot of the orofits out of me and I still have my debt to pay.
My budget desktop had a problem and I've been trying to get the parts to fix it inexpensively. Unfortunately after over a month fiddling with retailers including Fry's, Newegg and Amazon, I am no closer to a cheap solution that works. It's complicated, as usual.
My job is seemingly milking my hours for all they're worth, putting me on lot or sweep duty nearly every hour but not giving me my 40 hours. Debt is made SLIGHTLY easier to pay off by using my educational IRA to pay the first 3 months of rent ehile I settle, hopefully get a second job or promotion or…something. Unfortunately without my budget desktop working I can't write for commission, at least not very efficiently, and nobody has even called in response to my Craigslist ads for the old desktop since a major scammer nearly tricked me by leading me along.
