I Can't Even Make Assumptions

Thank Easyweb for being down right now, I guess. Compared to a couple weeks ago, I presently have a couple unexpected expenses, which I wanted to try and figure in to my work pay, but I can't do that without first knowing my balance, and I can't check that, because like this message says "This Web Service is currently not available". I'm expecting at least $400 though, which alone would be sufficient for what I need - Mom's birthday (both supper and a present), putting some more money away for December, and buying Halloween candy - but it would obviously be nice to get even $100 more than that, and to receive the same amount from Manoah as well. It really does make me wish I'd asked Mom to take a detour out to work after going to Value Village yesterday night, so I could pick up my pay stub, but there is that saying about good things coming to those who wait, so hopefully it comes true for me. Otherwise, I estimate expenses through to the first of November to be about $275, without counting visits to 7-11 or Tim Hortons, which is ironically just about what I went through last pay. Here I was so excited about all of my earnings going directly to me this week, too, and now look at what's happened. To say this is disappointing is an understatement.

On the better side of things, I particularly like the timing of the week after next. Halloween comes on a Monday, which I'm looking forward to working not to be able to work in my everyday clothes this year, but because it's just a special day, then candy shopping the day after that, which is definitely not necessary, but something I want to do all the same. I shouldn't get my hopes up though, otherwise I'll end up with the day off on Monday, and nothing but solid rain on Tuesday, much like the weather outside right now, which is nice while I'm in my room, but surely won't be when I step outside to walk to work later. Going back to expenses though, I'm not entirely sure yet, but maybe, depending on how much I get paid, I should just try to stay above $800, and work toward getting back to where I want to be during November. Problem is, that feels like taking the easy way out, but I detest this feeling of having to wait for another couple hours to get answers to the two questions that I can't stop thinking about now. Maybe it's appropriate that Brandon emailed me today, saying that he'd done as I asked, and checked to make sure the things he wanted (three items, apparently) could be paid for with Paypal, but he didn't tell me what they were, so whenever we meet up in person to discuss that, I will let him know about how things will be changing in November.

Otherwise though, I think all I want to do right now is go downstairs and resume playing Metroid Prime 2. I beat the first one yesterday night (not with 100% completion, unfortunately, thanks to missing some of the scans), and tried adventuring past the first save point in the second, but couldn't due to being tired. I also need to ask Naomi about going grocery shopping with Mom next week instead of tomorrow, and then get my uniform ready to go for work, and all of those other many things. I'm not sure what to expect from actual work tonight because Manoah is the closing manager, but I really have only two goals in mind for the rest of this evening: get my pay stub, and entertain myself with things other than going to 7-11 after work for snacks. Both of those seem well within reach, so at least I'm off to a good start there~
