If you can't achieve the look yourself….I've failed at my job
So what would you do with $1200? Go to Europe, get botox or dermal filler for a full year? Think of all the hair servies you oud get with me! You can do a lot with that money, but I’m tied to a particularly nasty habit which I can not control.
OMG, the shame! lol I was in the the midst of cancelling my internet and tv for the summer and I couldn’t do it! Don’t judge, oh alright, judge, I did….geez.
Remember when we just had one landline and maybe basic cable or like myself, I had just the rabbit ears and yet I managed. Just the thought now of not having internet contact makes me break out into a cold sweat. So now I pay close to 150 a month for landline,the tv, and the internet. The most I can whittle it down to is a promo package for $40 for six months and $85 after that for the internet and tv, I’m okay loosing the landline.
When you consider that I have internet at work, on the cell phone and pretty much every coffee shop around me,….I could loose my internet….right? NO,NO, here comes the sweats! The shame of it I tell you…I’m not even that tech savvy, but what would happen if I needed to get my daily dose of news from the net or google the weight of a humming bird (I’m curious) and I wasn’t working and I didn’t want a coffee? Would I just huddle in the corner of my living room hugging my dead laptop in a fetal position?
But to make my point, let’s go back to my college years in the late 80″s /early 90’s when I had a land line and answering machine and that was it for my bills other then hydro and rent. My phone was $19 and I was happy with three free fuzzy channels from the rabbit ears on top of the tv. Currently, I have a cell phone bill (got internet), an internet bill, tv (cheapest form of entertainment) and up to this past January a landline (my father wouldn’t call my cell). If I were more tech savvy like my nephews, I’d just watch free pirated tv on the internet, but I keep messing that up as well (more shame petals). And because it’s all on automatic payment, I just blindly keep paying once a month on the credit card, but once I started to add it all up…I felt a little taken for granted.
Maybe I need to start a new twelve step program, or start with only fours of internet/tv a day? Nope, here comes the sweats again, guess I’m just going to have to keep paying the ‘dealer’, but at least I am not only aware of what I’m paying per year in total damages, but what other uses I could do with that money…like use it for rehab.
Ok, so I’ve talked my way through this, I’m keeping the internet and tv, so maybe in the future I might just go cold turkey and cancel it all or not. However, as I type this I have the internet going, the BBC 24 hour news channel is playing and I’m as content as any addict can be. Your welcome.
