I'm trying to write a femslashex treat. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it and post it before the deadline since all that's left in this semester are finals and I'm only really worried about 2 exams. *crosses fingers* It's been forever since I've written something though, so it's slow going. What are words that aren't medical based?

I love reading articles on Pinterest about student loan debt, mortgage (let's be real, my student loan debt after grad school will be the amount of someone's mortgage), paying down debt, etc. I'm basically trying to keep myself afloat by doing some side hustles and whatnot, and I keep failing because I eat way too much fast food (stress eating because of school nomnom), but I try. I get a bunch of Walmart and Amazon gift cards from quite a few of my side hustles that I, in turn, use to pay for non-essential things so I don't have to use "real" money on them. Heck, I've even used those gift cards to pay for groceries/food, which is nice, and definitely have used them to pay for cat food and litter.

There are a few articles that touched upon whether it's a better idea to pay for a house entirely in cash or get a mortgage. There was one article where it sounds like a family did the former, paid for the entire house in one go, but the comments were negative about that, saying it was better to get a mortgage because your money could be making more if it was being invested versus used to pay off a house? And I get that makes sense, but only if you could make more money off that money. Frankly, I think I prefer paying off the house entirely (because if I get a house, I want to stay in that house for a long, long time) would be better for me because it's already guaranteed that I paid off my house. There is no guarantee I'll be able to invest that money to make more money (and I already know there's interest involved in a mortgage so I'm also losing money there).

Not that I'm anywhere near thinking about buying a house, not even close, but I like reading about it.

Where are the black ballet dancers? This article is from 2012, but I highly suspect that it's still relevant.

I'm at my car service people because I'm slightly overdue for my 30k checkup and I want to keep my car healthy (which, I should have probably known about the 30k check, but eh). It's $500 and I'm wincing hard, but I don't want my car to die on me and I drive it a lot for work and school, so I have to suck it up.

Still sucks!
