No, not an emotional one. A financial one. Time to break down my finances for the month and lay it out for all to see.
I’m estimating much of the information here. I still haven’t gotten paid from my current job. Perhaps by the middle of next month. So much of this data I’ve calculated on my own. Once I get my first pay stub, I’ll update my financials. For now, here goes: Keep reading . . .

Well, I started pounding the electronic pavement today. I noted back in By Night in a New Land that I would be considering this option. With the possibility of a monthly car payment, it must become more than a possibility. And, as mentioned back in Craigslist Addict, I tended to rely mostly on that website to find leads. That site isn’t really used much down here, so I’m left to the old-fashioned methods. Keep reading . . .

Thinking about my new location I’ve been wondering what I should do there by night. Keep reading . . .

So, out of the clear blue sky, opportunity knocked on my door. A really interesting, challenging, and rewarding job opportunity. One I’ve sought for years, which has eluded me. So why am I now apprehensive? Keep reading . . .

Numerous comments over the past few months have taken me to task for daring to expect something additional from the colleague I’ve worked for since August. Way back in Hang A Shingle. So, I thought I’d take the time to lay out some of the back and forth between him and myself. Might help to make for a clearer picture. Note that I’ve changed any identifying information as to persons or corporations. Keep reading . . .
As I was walking to the contract attorney position this morning, I saw an awesome billboard in Times Square: Uncle Sam, broke and penniless, begging for $12 Trillion dollars. Defeat the Debt.com posted the ad. I definitely feel where they’re coming from. As a nation we have a debt problem. But more so I think we have a shame problem. We don’t talk about our debt. And everyone else is in perfect, pristine financial health. They’ve never paid a bill late, never bounced a check or overdrew their accounts, and they’ve got a whole year’s worth of savings stocked away in the bank. If only that were true, eh?

A few days ago I received a comment suggesting and requesting a budget and income analysis. It got me thinking that a few visual aids might help me, and my readers, to gauge my progress. So, I spent the better part of today tooling around with excel spreadsheets trying to graph my data. In Third Day of Accounting I included an excel chart that showed total red from the prior two days of accounting. I didn’t have time to update that chart for my Fourth Day of Accounting. I thought I’d start with charting my total black and total red for each day. That chart didn’t come out looking as clean as I thought, so it’s on hold. It’s not what the commenter requested, or suggested, but it’s a start. See, a budget implies income and expenses. These past few weeks I’ve mostly had expenses. It’s hard to budget when your income shifts from week to week. I can chart my expenses, but I kinda covered that in Cutting Costs, Corners . . . and Concerns. But I promise to make my entries a bit more visually stimulating. Perhaps that’s a task I can accomplish while relaxing over the Thanksgiving holiday at my mother’s. Keep reading . . .
