Can't stick to it...

September 5th, 2008 at 08:43 am

So I took Fern's advice and talked to BF. He knows his working habits are ridiculous but he is trying to build his career. He feels like it will not always be like this but I disagree. Moving up the corporate ladder demands more time at work. But we'll see...

Went out and spent money like no tomorrow. Bought drinks for friends and went to dinner for her birthday.

breakfast at work 3.75
dinner 31.25
drinks 20.00
cab 20.00

Food $62.34/60.00 (and it's only 5 days into september!)

Contact solution $3.66/$10

miscellaneous $20/$100

    Alas, life on the path of frugality always reminds me of being a kid trying to walk up the playground slide.... Ok, who am I kidding, I still do it when nobody is looking. Big Grin

    But the point is, because of life, we are always constantly sliding back. So, the important thing isn't the fact that we slip from time to time, but the fact that we keep up the effort to move forward. Otherwise, the only certainty to our fate is our continued slide downwards.

    i'm glad you started a dialogue. I know that sometimes it seems like things will never change, but they do. Maybe the change might not come from him, maybe it'll be you when you get a really, really interesting job where YOU want to put in extra time.

    If you love this guy, hang onto him. It's impossible to predict the future, so just take it a day, a week, a month at a time and see how it goes. And keep that conversation going.
