I have some good news on the Operation Dig Out of Hole front: I have now paid off my credit cards.* Sure, I have about 4 bucks in the checking account til the end of the next month, but at the end of that time, I will only have to pay off my current expenses and could finally have some money left over!

Great. This means that I will be able to save up some moving money between now and when I slink home in unemployment shame because I can't seem to hold down a job. Sob.

And in news related to that, I have done up 2 applications so far this morning, but it looks like Feb is the big due date for when all the cc applications have to be in, so I need to go pull and prep even more and more to get ahead on my pile before the papers start rolling in. Sigh. I already have lots of homework and in-class writing piled up that I need to evaluate and comment on, so I'll be doing a different kind of digging out soon.

*Don't ask about the student loans. Really.
