I was so close to making a clean break from the Bursars Department until they stuck one last knife in my financial back. Instead of telling people that they were experiencing problems with their direct deposit system they told everyone that everything was fine, issued paper checks instead and then mailed them. So, instead of having a few thousand dollars in my bank account, I have $48.50. And it’ll stay that way until I get mailed a check, open it, mail it to NH, have them deposit it and then wait the week for it to clear. So, basically, I have no money for the next two weeks. I should have had money last week, but because they didn’t tell anyone now I’m in a bit of a bind. I have a credit card bill that’s due on the 14th, a cable bill that was due today and supplies to order from B&H. Plus I haven’t given Jason a check for my half of the rent yet. I know he doesn’t care that much but it’s still not fair to him. Oi.
Besides the usual financial woe, I do have some photos to take this weekend. Friends from class, Lauren W and Jonquil have volunteered to help me out. I have two separate shoots, one tomorrow at 1-ish and another Sunday afternoon at a yet to be determined time. I don’t have any critiques due until the following Thursday so if things go bad I have time to re-shoot, which is always a nice “buffer zone” to have.
Other than that I’ve been hanging out with Lauren as much as I can. Our schedules are kind of all over the place this semester and I like to spend time with her when I can. Tonight we’re actually going to go to an art gallery opening for one of my friends, Jason Mehan, who if I can get him over here with a portfolio might be the photographer at the wedding. After that I think I’m going to treat Lauren to a late night showing of Anger Management if she feels up for it.
That’s about it. Matt out.
