I’m a few weeks behind in my spend and debt updates, so planning to post a few all at once and then let you know what the heck I’ve been up too.
So week 31 I moved out of my folks place and into an apartment with my boyfriend. For the sake of my mental health, I could no longer do the epic 4 hour daily commute from my folks place to work and back. I had reached the end of the line on that one, mentally and physically drained and not far from having a public meltdown on the way to work one morning when delays meant the trip to work alone took 3 hours!
A grown woman crying and thrashing around in the 2nd carriage while screaming ‘for the love of God, I’ll get out and push this train – just hurry the f#$% UP!’ is NOT a good look.
A week later, a lease was signed and my commute went from 2 hours one way to 25 mins. WINNING.
However, it has been expensive and thrown a spanner – one of many this month it seems – in the debt smashing works.
