There are few feelings in life more crushing than the moment you realize you fucked up your money. Maybe you overspent, maybe you forgot to account for an upcoming bill, maybe you got carried away at some store or another. Whatever the catalyst, the sinking, “Oh-fuck-I-don’t-get-paid-for-14-more-days” feeling is always one of the worst people can experience. In the first world, anyway.
That’s where I’m at this morning. I worked my ass off on a budget for the week, was super careful with how I spent it… and I’m still about seventy bucks short. I don’t get it.
