I got my hours cut again today at work. The past two paychecks have been less than $400, which I need in order to pay my student loan bills. Even with $400 every two weeks, I'm barely breaking even. If I have a credit card balance, then I end up dipping into the cushion in my checking account. That cushion is pretty much gone.
This month, I had to transfer money from my savings account to pay my credit card bill. This is the first time I have ever had to do that.
It freaks me out because if I mess up on my student loans, then it's bye bye grad school and decent credit score. Just thinking about it makes my stomach churn.
Did I mention that when I get stressed, I go big instead of going home?
I just need to breathe deep, cleansing breaths. I will get through this. I will get through this.
