Is it good news comes first or bad news? I can't remember which way, but the good news is I found a really cool job I would love to apply for (it is at the local art museum) .....BUT (there is always a but) the salary is less than half of what I make now. Hm. Thinking, thinking, how could I pull that off?
I would have to get 2 roommates instead of 1...... or I could take up one of the few offers from some of my AWESOME friends who have said I could live with them. :)
See, here is the major obstacle I need to hurdle in this whole mess. I am pretty much a statistic when it comes to credit card debt. I pay a hefty amount each month on a payment program (which I have been doing for 3 yrs now) and that raises my monthly expenses quite a bit. If it were not for that "little" issue, I am thinking the salary wouldn't be that bad.
I am wondering if I write a letter to my credit card companies and tell them my plans they would dismiss my balances.....yea, probably not. But seriously, I think it would be funny if I tried that!! Who does that?
To Whom It May Concern:
I would like for you to dismiss my balance with you because I am about to cut my salary in half and go back to art school. It really would be like donating to the arts, it could even be a tax write off if you knew a creative accountant. Not to mention I have probably sold all the stuff I bought with your credit card on ebay anyway, so what do you think? Deal?
Seriously, could you imagine the laughter in the collections office the day they get that letter? It might even be worth it just to see what their reply would be.
Ok, calling it a night. My dog is giving me "the eye" that says he is ready for bed, and he rules my world these days.
