Oh, blog.

I sat down to write, opened up "New Post" and everything, and just wasn't feeling it. Still no picture-loading, so that'll probably go up on my list of things to buy: a card reader. This weekend, though, I am going down to DC, so that's most of my other-stuff budget, but then I'll take pictures while I am there! Very confusing all of it.

Anyways I am all moved in to my cottage. It's been good so far and having my own place has been nice. Money hasn't been in excess but I had some family help for the down payment and I'm prioritizing what I want/need/can afford. I'd like a microwave but I think I'll buy a set of pans first. However both of those can wait because I have some pans I can use in the oven so I'm okay with that- I've made a few pizzas, and sandwiches. Dan took me to the grocery store so I'd actually have food in my house, which is great! But in two weeks he'll be going to California to work Comic-con (I'm totally jealous, I hope he has no fun at all), and he'll be gone for about ten days. So I'll have plan some other grocery-obtaining ways, since I doubt I can learn to ride a bike within this week- especially because I don't own a bike.

July might be an expensive month :/ Even though I asked off this weekend, due to the holiday weekend I didn't have work at the bakery Friday and no work at either job Monday. This week I am only working three shifts for one job and one shift at another! Hopefully July will be surprisingly busy at the restaurant- I know a lot of the bussers have and will be trying to go down "to the shore" on the weekends, so maybe I can take their shifts.
June was a hard month for me though, not particularly economically- though I was trying hard to get out of my apartment and plunked a lot of money down at the end of the month, as well as on train tickets and food to spend time away from home. I am rather glad it's over and hope July is at least better even if it's a bit costly.
