Last Week in My Life
A Month of No Spending
It actually isn’t really that hard. It really helps to have a boyfriend who is willing to pay for things that he wants to do. Last Sunday he wanted to go out to breakfast and then to a bar later in the day to watch the Washington Redskins and he understood that he would have to pay for me in order for me to go. Usually we split things or take turns paying.
I’ve realized how much I actually spend on groceries, and it’s a lot. And a lot of the food ends up going to waste! But I’ve made some meal plans based on food we already have in the fridge/pantry so I hope to get better at not wasting food.
The boyfriend is back in law school. I love him, but I am so happy he will be out of the apartment a few hours every day. Now I will definitely have more time to read without ESPN distracting me from the other room.
It was a pretty boring week for me. I have a 4 day weekend because tomorrow is MLK Day and the library is closed. I spent my Friday watching 5 hours of The Wire. The boyfriend and I watched all 5 seasons about 4 years ago when I was taking a class on it in undergrad, and now he is taking a class on it in law school, so we are watching it again. And now we live in Baltimore so we are constantly looking things up to see where they happened in relation to where we live. It’s even harder to watch the second time around because I know when everyone dies and I dread it, even when it’s 3 seasons away. Except that one death. I’m ok with that one.
