It’s a great feeling when you get your wage packet through at the end of the month, it makes you feel like the work you’ve been doing over the past month has been worth it. But while everyone else is doing that, I won’t be doing any of the above.
No I will in fact be returning to the gym to attempt to lose weight, no this isn’t the gym I go to, this is just a stock gym image I found on Google Images, the gym I go to is much better than this shit tip hah! I joined the gym around May last year and kept it up right up until I left England to work in France at the end of the year, I had to pay the rest of the contract off because it worked out cheaper than paying the fee every month. But when I injured my self in France I was in no fit shape to go back to the gym straight away, so I laid around the house doing nothing while looking for work.
By the time I was in a job I was pretty much in debt, I’ve been in debt since the beginning of this year and so far I haven’t been given a chance to get it down. It haven’t been under £600 in debt since January, a lot of you might think this is no big deal but for me it is because I’ve had that mentality that I have to save and not enjoy myself at all for the entire year because I’ve wanted to get my overdraft down, I hate being in debt. I always had one promise to myself and that was when I get below a certain amount in my overdraft I would head back to the gym, but then I got fired from the call centre job and I’ve pretty much been hopping around for jobs this entire year, my overdraft losing the battle of trying to go down.
Debt slowly rising by the passing month, I got a job at A1 Comms and got it down to 700 after five weeks, but then I was let go from that job aswell, then I went back to Voice in desperation, for the last five or six months I’ve been at least £1000 in debt and whenever I get it down, something happens to the job I’m in and it slowly starts creeping up again.
Well I got paid today and my overdraft which was at £1146 is now only £297! So for those that are going out tonight, tomorrow night or even Sunday night I hope you have a good time, because I certainly won’t be out drinking, first thing tomorrow I’ll be marching (well driving) to that gym and re-registering with them. All I need to do is go another month without wasting my money on stupid nights out around Sheffield spending more than I need to be doing, concentrate on spending my money on petrol for the car and by the end of October I will have gotten myself out of my overdraft for the first time in 2011!
I’ve come a long way since joining WordPress back in the middle of July, in the short two month span I’ve gone from being extremely bitter about life and horribly in debt, to someone who doesn’t quite mind their life at the moment. When next month comes and I get a full months pay (I had only been at this current job about three and a half weeks) then you will see a big change in my overview of life.
I’ll still be the sarcastic bastard that I am now, I just won’t be quite so bitter. Unless of course I get fired and become broke again.
But I will let you all know how my first day back at the gym is tomorrow, it’s going to be a long process trying to get my weight down, a year of doing nothing will make you extremely lazy and unhealthy and overweight I am hoping this dramatic drop in my overdraft is the start of a new ‘Ard, a happier ‘Ard!
