Monday musings

  • I found a temporary job! It hopefully starts this week and will likely last only a few weeks, but the extra money will go towards lowering my debt and savings for school.
  • I got my income tax return today! Exactly the amount I had figured on - $689.50. To be deposited and divvied up into RRSP, EFund, (10% each) school, travel & debt repayment.
  • I'll have two extra shifts on my second paycheque in April. I worked Friday and got called in today, so the extra cash will go towards school & debt.
  • Met with my account manager today at the bank. We discussed options for school funding: a student LOC and/or my RRSP Lifelong Learning option. I will likely use a combination of the two.
  • I'll likely be able to return one of my textbooks, too. It's for a basic computer literacy course and I'm confident that I don't need to do it. Once I have been formally accepted to the program, I'll visit the assessment centre. I need 80% to pass, to get the credits and not have to take the course in September.
  • The temperature today is supposed to get to +2C!! It's a lovely day and that will be a bonus. It means spring is sneaking into the Territory. :)
  • The tuna casserole I made for dinner last night is a bit disappointing. I don't have mayonnaise, so it's a little dry. I didn't think about it as mayonnaise isn't something I buy. I don't like it. It does, however, add a little flavour and zing to a casserole, so I will get a jar to have on hand.
  • Now I kinda wish I wasn't going to work...
Have a great day everyone!

You said your job would only last a few weeks but as they said back in England when I was growing up.
"Owt is better n nowt'!
Looks as though things are really coming together for you.

Lots of positive news and it looks like you'll be able to make the finances work for school!! It's been YEARS since I last had a tuna casserole - sounds yummy - except for the "dry" part :)

well done on getting the part time job. Flipping cold around here, after the heat wave of last week,

Sounds like lots of great news for you.

It will all be worth it in the long run.

Could you let me know next time you blog. I've added you to my blog roll at least 3 times now and it doesn't seem to work. I get frustrated when I miss a post!

Thanks Honey!
