hello from the mad rush of packing up camp! I’m taking my lunch break on this, the penultimate day of camp, to have a quick check-in:
write something every day (except Shabbat). I wrote more this past week than I did most of the rest of the month, which is awesome… but I’m still neglecting my bullet journal and a huge amount of what I wrote was academic, so I’m just hoping that next month will be better!
be better about money. that shopping spree from a few weeks ago, along with vet costs from yesterday (Kiwikitty has an upper respiratory infection so she’s a sad and sneezy baby right now), have really depleted the rest of my summer savings so we’re officially in “spend what you’re earning” mode. I’m stressed out about the looming strike for sure, but at least all my August payments were done and I’ll be good for rent… we’ll see how September goes!
self-validate more. I didn’t use the best language to deal with myself when I realized that I was going to be in a financial pinch despite how much I’d try to avoid it, but that’s really been the one time where I really slipped back into old habits… I just have to make sure it doesn’t become a recurring issue!
until next time, where I will trade the hustle and bustle from camp for the meetings and madness of the new school year!
