Ah, the unjoys of worrying about money.
So I've been working for my dad for some time now, and I'm making a modest $10 an hour. The hours are rather unsteady, however, so it's not a clean cut income. Sure I'll make a dear amount of money this summer, and I'll have a great amount of time for myself on my hands, but I need to start building my financial foundation now. If I end up getting married right out of college, or shortly thereafter (not to say that I will, by no means, as of right now, do I think I will--I've got too much growing to do), I would have so much monetary responsibility. Even without getting married, there is a lot to think about. A house, car and insurance, life and health insurance, clothes, food, bills. Forget all those things you wanted so badly, cause all they'll do is screw you over financially. Think about it: if you get married and have a child within the first year of marriage (which would most likely happen,) you have medical bills to pay, new gadgets and safety devices to buy unless there are a lot of old generous or rich people invited to the baby shower. Man! How could I forget! Education debt! Oh my goodness. I don't want to think about that. That's what I want to pay off now. Go away, that's what I say. Start making gobs of money to pay it off now so that I don't have horrendous accrual after 3 more years. That way all I have to do is pay like maybe the last year and a half to two years off after I leave. I'm going off. Goodness, all I wanted to say is that I'm deliberating getting a second, evening job, probably delivering pizza or the like.
Essentially, do I want time to myself every day; time to read, goof of on the computer, to post, to hang out with friends, or do I want to make a lot of money to save up, and pay off my debts, and not have too much time but the weekends to myself? I don't know yet, but I need to decide soon. Vacation is next week, then the wedding, and after that weekend is when I would need to be working that second job for any efficacy.
I'd like you guys' input, because, of course, I trust your opinions.
