u wouldnt expect it to be this cold in vegas, when carrying a ton of groceries home from walmarts it felt like i needed gloves, i felt cold in my hands more than not having a cap or warmer coat, and of course i couldnt be in a really cold place like south dakota with this little money.
Havent been to the bank yet, nor the thrift store, but if i find moms check this afternoon, or whenever i go to sleep and wake up, then ill go over there, must be done fairly quickly so i can have a working atm card. cant be putting it off, because they still will have to mail me a permanent one, im only going in to pick up a temporary.
am still only in the $1700s, that check is supposed to be what will get me back to over $2000. at least ive been doing ok on lock, still holding onto over $140 on there. i didnt lose all that money, it just looked like it because of the charges taken out when i ordered mom the tea. (i did have that one bad $300 poker and VP drop that one night).
To maintain a roll of over $2000 will be incredibly difficult. $174 will come out wed for rent, $90 more for internet in a week, $2-6 might not be beatable (still not a big enough sample to determine) and anything could go wrong. And if i stay around $2000 forever, eventually something would go wrong, and i would end up broke, so its critical this gets to $3000 as soon as possible so i have the extra $1000 cushion. especially if i was to start playing NL. $174 a week seems to be way too much rent, ive seen places as low as $125 a week here in vegas, but they look far more unsafe.
heres some good news, and i have no idea why, but for whatever reasons, ive not seen a single roach in here the last 3 days. how they all died i dunno.
Thanks so much to Jamie on facebook for offering to bring me a battery when he comes to vegas Jan 26th. theres so many little things like that i need, such as a haircut and bedding, that i cant just bring myself to spend money on when things like a bike and rent are so much more important and until i hit $3000 i really shouldnt spend a dime on any expenses. Not playing NL makes it a lot harder to win enough a week to get by. did i leave Jean too soon? i fear i mightve lost my discipline and lost the money there too.
And i still havent seen Grump or Johnny since returning to vegas, and grump dont have a lot of time before he leaves. Wont be able to afford a bike anytime soon either i fear.
