There is nothing so scary to a Capricorn as that space between leaving one place (and its steady paycheck) and starting a new one ( and getting that first paycheck out of the way)
It’s that week between that absolutely kills me. I haven’t worked yet and that freaks my little inner banker the hell out. Yes, I know that I still have 1 more paycheck coming, but that inner worrywart keeps reminding me that there are bills coming up due soon and I haven’t earned the money to pay that and my next months rent…yet.
My logical brain knows I’ll be just fine. The thing is…my logical brain ain’t driving tbe bus just now. Because, my nest egg was used to pay the security deposit, 1st months rent, and travel expenses, my inner banker doesn’t like the zero balance on my savings account..at all. And when I say at all..I mean his ass is in the fetal position.
I just spent the last 4 hours planning out a payment schedule that ensures that everyone is paid on time and on budget. It took some finangling because I had to make guesses on my hours and most likely scenario with regards to electric usage and how often I’ll need to use an Uber (buses don’t run on weekends soo…8 days max a month using a service if I work both days each week) anyway…I’m done. Phew** I made high guesses because I’d much rather be pleasantly surprised than unpleasantly horrified.
After that was done, I went on to plan out my food budget and menu. That was also lots of fun.
I think I need a nap.
