I have my cable and internet hooked up!! I'm not a big fan of paying the cable company money because they charge to much but i got a real good deal for at least 6 months. Got a shitload of cable channels, with hbo, cinemax, starrz, encore, 200 of the other cable channels, digital music, and Internet for 78 a month. They had this special with the internet is only 19.99 if you sign up for this. Only channels i don't have is showtime, tmc, and a few sports channels on the sports tier. If you got charter ask about it because you know as well as i know that once a deal runs out they'll up your rates and not tell you of other deals. You almost have to threaten to cancel to get new deals.
The only thing missing in my cable setup is my internet is in my bedroom. I have a second tv i need to track down a friend who i borrowed it too to get that hooked up in my bedroom. I usually watch tv when i'm on the internet.
Otherwise the apartment is coming together some. Last sunday i brought another load of things. Brought more clothes, stereo, cds, printer, a couple lamps, and other things.
What i need for my apartment is this: My living room is small and that's where my shittiest carpeting is. It's only 14 feet by 8 feet. I need to get a couple throw/ area rugs to cover the majority of it. I seen they have them cheap at walmart. And i need to get a cheap entertainment center for my tv setup in the living room. I really don't care about the rugs/ entertainment center, it will just make my apartment alot nicer. You got them wierd old wook tiles on the walls so you can't really paint them. I gotta hang posters/stuff on the walls. i do all that it will make my apartment alot nicer. Bedroom is really not that bad. Carpeting isn't too horrible, in fact it's my favorite room i'm more interested making the living room a little nicer for if i have company or whatever.
Money is real tight now so even rugs/ entertainment center will wait til i know i have all my bills paid. They are paid i pay them as i get them with my credit card debt and now my rent, cable bill, phone bill, and food bill i keep a real tight budget. I gotta. Good news i have three payments left on one loan, (lol, my deferrment is over on my education loan next month so i'll have to start paying that again), As i mentioned before with my debt i keep up my minimums i pick out one credit card and pay all i can on it every month, and at this point do not know if it will be much more then minimum, but long as i keep everything paid and support myself i am happy. All i know is every single month my debt is going down even if just a little and as i get things paid off i can put more money on other debts. I should get a good chunk back for taxes so that'll help.
I have a plan by next summer i can have both of my personal loans paid off. Early next summer i will see if i can get a house loan and consolidate my remaining credit card balance which will be high, but i keep everything paid and my credit good. Only thing not great on my credit is the amount of debt i have but it gets better every month. Think i actually have a fair to good credit score and it gets every month. I'll talk to the bank ahead of time and i should be able to get a loan, then i can start looking for a house:)
Well i just got my cable/ internet so i'm gonna maybe find a movie to watch before work, eat, etc. i had over 2000 messages to download on this group there is no way i'll be able to read even a fraction of them but gonna check some of them out. Smokings going good, or lack of it.
Meter has grown a great deal since i last posted it. I got through about the shittiest weekend of my life and didn't even think of smoking as an option so that shows how much this quit has evolved. You start out thinking of smoking every minute on the minute and now if i do think about it i usually do not want to smoke. I always want to smoke but the urge is so weak and my desire to not smoke is more then my desire to smoke. My two cents anyway. I'll post more once i get a little more time. I have to get going, get ready for work, check my cable out. Definitely good to be back. No cable or internet really sucked, especially the internet.
I have been quit for 3M 2W 5D 12h 17m . (111 days) I have saved $446.04 by not smoking 2,230 cigarettes. Life spent not smoking: 1W 17h 50m. My quit date 5/31/2005
